White House covering other matters which appear to have yielded fruit. (1)

Subject: The Youth -
How consumerism destroys them worldwide.
Dear Mrs. Clinton:
May this letter find you and President Clinton enjoying some spiritual
peace in the midst of the whirlwind of the Presidency and the continued
attacks staged by Ross Perot, et al.
I have written many documents warning ourselves, Americans, of the
detrimental effect that our culture is having on our youth and the
youth of the world. The daily news clearly illustrate the state of our
youth. Regarding the youth of the world...
I am enclosing photocopies of a small sample of publications and post
cards that are part of the regular inventory in the Papelerías
in Portugal. [Papelería = Stationery style store that provides
most needs for schoolchildren, from gum to books, and assorted
merchandise/services for adults].
The particular Papeleria, from which these samples were taken, is in a
village with many unpaved streets and periodic cattle traffic on the
streets. It is less than two blocks from the only school in the
village. The school children who peruse, buy and use such merchandise
are between the ages of eight to seventeen.
Although Portugal ranks 12th in literacy amongst the European
Community, this type of store with such merchandise abounds.
We do not realize what we have done and are doing to the world by
spearheading the destruction of the youth.

Mrs. Hillary R. Clinton
Just to briefly illustrate to you how blind we are...
For years psychiatrists, educators, sociologists, etc. have been
debating if the steady diet of violence and sex in our social
communication and entertainment systems have a detrimental effect in
our society, specifically in our youth. However, we have the concrete
answer before our own eyes...
The industrialized nations are societies and systems built on
Consumerism. The spread of Consumerism is totally dependent on
publicity/advertising. Therefore, we can ascertain that
publicity/advertising works; especially saturation advertising.
If publicity/advertising have proven so successful in selling
merchandise and services, how could we still be debating the effects
that "saturation advertising" of violence and sex in social
communication and entertainment system worldwide?
Mrs. Clinton, are we really that blind or do we want to be that blind?
It is really too late to incorporate this information in your health
and social agenda, which would have done so much good for our nation
and the world. Unfortunately, there is no time left.
My very best regards for President Clinton and, as always, you may
count on my daily prayers for the three of you. Please, keep that
"family time" sacred regardless of how many staffers get irritated
about it. Without a doubt that has to be the most important item in the
Clinton's appointment book. A Balanced Presidency flows from a Balanced
I remain, as always,
Note: It was
not until years later that we realized the Mrs. Clinton's "It Takes a
Village" (2) was published on
January 1996 barely a year and a half later.
