The red grapefruit eaten today is a product of a 1950s program in the United States called Atoms for Peace, whose goal was to promote practical uses for nuclear power outside of a wartime context.  One of the things Atoms for Peace came up with is the gamma garden which is exactly as amazing as it sounds.  Radioactive material was planted in the middle of a garden, around which concentric rings of plants farthest away were largely unaffected, but the plants in the middle mutated.  Some of those mutations were useful, and among them was the modern red grapefruit: a sweeter, atomically-induced mutation of the existing red grapefruit, whose flesh often faded to a less-desirable pink. Most red grapefruit today comes from the descendants of those atomically mutated plants.

Image result for bretton woods

One of the early American advocates of socialism on a global scale - including the draining of wealth away from the "rich" - was John F. Kennedy.  He undoubtedly learned the concept while attending the Fabian London School of Economics in 1935-1936 just prior to his father's appointment as Ambassador to England.  When JFK became President, his political views continued to carry the imprint of that training.  In September of 1963, he addressed the finance ministers and central-bank governors for 102 nations at the annual meeting of the IMF/World Bank.  He explained the concept of world socialism in glowing terms:

     Twenty years ago, when the architects of these institutions met to design an international banking structure, (Bretton Woods, New Hampshire) the economic life of the world was polarized in overwhelming, and even alarming, measure on the United States...There was a need for redistribution of the financial resources of the world....And there was an equal need to organize a flow of capital to the impoverished countries of the world. All this has come about.  It did not come about by chance but by conscious and deliberate and responsible planning.

From the diary of Lt. Col Willett Gonin who described what happened when his unit liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.  At the moment of this writing hundreds of people still died every day:

It was shortly after the British Red Cross arrived, though it may have no connection, that a very large quantity of lipstick arrived.  This was not at all what we men wanted, we were screaming for hundreds and thousands of other things and I don't know who asked for lipstick.

I wish so much time that I could discover who did it, it was the action of genius, sheer unadulterated brilliance.  I believe nothing did more for these internees than the lipstick.  Women lay in bed with no sheets and no nightie but with scarlet red lips, you saw them wandering about with nothing but a blanket over their shoulders, but with scarlet red lips.  I saw a woman dead on the post mortum table and clutched in her hand was a piece of lipstick.

At last, someone had done something to make them individuals again, they were someone, no longer merely the number tattooed on the arm.  At last, they could take an interest in their appearance.  That lipstick started to give them back their humanity.

Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, but the realization of how much you already have.
