Encyclopedia > Kennedy Curse

The Kennedy Curse refers to a series of unfortunate events that have happened to the famed Kennedy family. While these events could have happened to any family, some have referred to the continual misfortune of the Kennedy family as a curse. Several members of the Kennedy family have died from unnatural causes, most notably brothers John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy who were assassinated, and John F. Kennedy, Jr., who died in a 1999 plane crash.[1] The Irish Catholic political dynasty, John, Robert, and Edward Kennedy The Kennedy family is a prominent Irish-American family in American politics and government descending from the marriage of Joseph P. and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy. ...

Validity

There are several theories regarding the origin of the "curse". In mathematics, theory is used informally to refer to a body of knowledge about mathematics. ...


Critics of the curse theory argue that given the sheer size of the family, the number of unfortunate events is not unusual. The "curse" may be seen less as supernatural and more as simple probability. Moreover, while tragic events occur to a lesser or greater extent in all families, they make headline news when they involve a famous clan. It could also be argued that the Kennedys, owing to their relative wealth, have a lifestyle that is quite different from that of average persons—most people, for example, do not pilot or fly in private planes—and consequently they are more often in greater physical danger.[2] For other uses, see Supernatural (disambiguation). ... For other uses, see Clan (disambiguation). ...


It could furthermore be argued that, by being a political family, the Kennedys may have exposed themselves to danger from political enemies. Some have argued that President John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert Kennedy were victims of assassination conspiracies.[3][4]

Kennedy curse (299 words)
The so-called Kennedy curse is a media creation.
In their attempt to bolster the myth of the Kennedy curse, the media have included self-caused harms as "tragedies." Getting drunk and leaving a girl to drown is a tragedy for the girl's family, not the FK clan.
Dying in a plane crash when you shouldn't be flying a plane, date rape, reckless behavior on a ski slope, having an affair with your babysitter, being arrested for possession of heroin, and dying of a drug overdose are not tragedies.
