Brief report. The massive blackout, 1965 November 25
Senator Peter H. Dominick (R-Colo.) delivers his radio address, a Brief report, on November 23, 1965. Sen. Dominick discusses the cause of the massive blackout of electrical service in the northeastern United States and Canada on November 9, 1965. Noting that a faulty switch in Canada led to a chain reaction of power failures in interdependent electrical systems, Dominick says that the event should serve as an analogy to the dangers of the centralization of government power. He discusses his view that each area of the United States should be self-reliant and not depend too heavily on other areas.
