The quirky story of John R. Brinkley includes many life lessons. One is the incredible gullibility of the American consumer. Another is the incredible power of Mass Media to influence the gullible American consumer. That John R. Brinkley almost became governor of Kansas shows the incredible gullibility of the American electorate. Given the early family life of Brinkley it isn't too surprising that he would fail to develop any moral character.
He clearly had usual gifts that could have been channeled in many more profitable directions. But because his moral compass was not only broken, but appears to have never even existed, he was ultimately to lose everything and to die in disgrace. The wicked often prosper for awhile, maybe even for their entire life, but justice eventually prevails.
