Meet the man who may have saved your life
and may do so again

Originally written in the late 1980s at the height of the cold war,
 by Rolf A. F Witzsche - updated Feb, 2002

In the early years of 1980s, at the height of the cold war, when the doomsday clock stood at just a few minutes before midnight, the American economist and statesman, Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr., intervened. With this intervention he set an event into motion that in due course shut down the cold war.  In this manner he may have saved your life, - and yes, he may do it again. 

People ask, who is Lyndon LaRouche? What are his policies? They say, give it to me straight! Boil it down to a half a dozen points that one can understand.

Well, I can do better than that. I can boil it down to a single point. Lyndon LaRouche's goals, programs, speeches, seminars, radio interviews, international conferences, and his countless pieces of writings have one fundamental purpose that stands above all considerations, and that is to assure that you, me, society as a whole, have a chance to be still alive five years from now in a thriving civilization, and for as long as our natural life will carry us. This is presently very much in doubt, just as it was so at the height of the cold war period when Lyndon LaRouche intervened in a unique manner to bring that escalating madness to a close. It is worthwhile to explore this dimension of history, at the present time, because it illustrates the key for solving our present financial, economic, and civilizational crises that have become equally as threatening, if not more so.

Lyndon LaRouche alerts the world that we face three major crises in the immediate period ahead: a financial break down crisis, a physical economic collapse crisis, and a "clash of civilizations" religious war crisis.

The financial breakdown crisis

We face dangers today that are greater than any in history. We are in the end-phase of a financial collapse that is potentially much larger than the 14th Century banking collapse that resulted in an economic and biological disintegration throughout Europe that wiped out half the area's populations in a short period of time. The GKO crisis in Russia in 1998, the Asia Crisis, the LTCM collapse, The Argentina crisis, the Enron collapse crisis with its huge interconnected mess of derivatives exposures that could explode into a cluster bust that destroys the entire financial system, are all but symptoms of that unfolding crisis that has not yet fully hit us.

These great individual tragedies are all symptoms of an axiomatic sickness that has been implanted into the world-financial system during its reorganization beginning in the mid 1960s. Lyndon LaRouche presents compelling evidence that we are now at the end-phase of that disease that we allowed to creep into the system, that is not curable. The system is so deeply infested that it cannot be cured, but it can be replaced. It is Lyndon LaRouche's goal to replace that system before it totally destroys the physical foundation for human existence.

Lyndon LaRouche has a policy proposal put on the table to accomplish that, his world famous New Bretton Woods policy proposal. He has created an international awareness of the need to implement this civilization saving policy. All that he requires to implement it, is a constituency at home, and the authority to implement it. It's really quite that simple to solve this enormous problem in principle. It is an inherently achievable goal with society's help. The alternative, though, is unthinkable. 

The physical economic collapse crisis

All of this is happening in an environment of a general collapse in the physical economy in terms of the collapse of industries, of physical infrastructures, employment, production, family incomes, farming, health care, and so on. When Roosevelt's new deal was announced to pull the U.S. nation out of the deepest depression in its history. The physically productive sector was relatively strong, and the farming sector was relatively secure. But not so today. These sectors have more or less all been destroyed, and this on almost a global scale. 

Lyndon LaRouche has put a policy proposal on the table that offers the only existing platform that is big enough to have the potential to actually work in bringing about a world-wide economic recovery on which the economic recovery of every nation depends. LaRouche points out strongly that no form of local solution can be found to a problem that is not a local problem, that is a global systemic problem. His recovery proposal focuses on the Eurasian Land Bridge development as a vehicle to bring together the technological capabilities of Western Europe and North America with the economic potential of Asia for a world wide economic recovery, including South America and Africa. Nothing less than a global economic recovery cooperation among sovereign nation states will be sufficient to address the current world-economic collapse crisis.

The "clash of civilizations" religious war crisis

Overlaid above the physical collapse crisis, and the financial collapse crisis, is the financial oligarchy's long cherished dream to sink the world into a world-encircling "clash of civilizations" religious war, a new 100 years war as it has been announced, that is presently in the end-phase of being implemented. The September 11 tragedy, and the unfolding Middle East tragedy, are not seen as isolated elements by Lyndon LaRouche, but as intentionally arranged strategic stepping stones towards this world-engulfing "clash of civilizations" religious war that the ruling financial oligarchy of the world has been working towards consistently for the past decades. 

The goal of this warfare, according to policies repeated published since the mid 1970s, is to reduce the present world population to a level below the one billion mark. This is what the current U.S. Administration's "axis of evil" policy is a part of, to serve as a facilitator or detonator, according to LaRouche's perception. The fight against terrorism project has been identified by Lyndon LaRouche as an integral part of this process: to function as a detonator. He identified the September 11 tragedy from the moment on when it happened, as a coup d'etat by high level networks tied into the military, intelligence, and or security establishment of the U.S., with the evident intend to force the U.S. government into becoming compliant to the demands for the "clash of civilizations" religious war that has been long in the making, beginning with the arc of crisis policy. 

LaRouche's hopes, at the present time, are that his faith in the human nature of the U.S. and European populations has not been misplaced, so that society will locate the power within itself and its democratic institutions to put a stop to the entire insanity of a "clash of civilizations" war, and will act decisively to save itself by acting on his policy proposals.

His policy to save humanity in this arena has always been a policy to expose the truth. His latest policy thrust in this strategic direction is his "Dialog of Civilizations" project that brings to light the deeply interconnected roots of the world's cultures and their contributions to civilization.  His fight is to elevate universal truths in the minds of humanity to debunk the conjured up lies about humanity in support of the "clash of civilizations" objectives.

At the age of 80, working together with his wife, Helga Zepp LaRouche, and with the support of his organizations and chapters around the world, and the support from the intelligencia in many nations, Mr. LaRouche is fighting tireless for the protection of humanity from the onrushing three dimensional crisis of our age, that has the potential to sink the world into a new dark age with a corresponding loss of most of its people.

The logical question is: Will Lyndon LaRouche be as successful this time around, as he was with his intervention to end the cold war? This question, however, can only be answered by society itself, which holds the key to that answer. Nevertheless, Lyndon LaRouche's intervention in the 1980s, to end the cold war crisis, is a worthwhile example to explore at this point, in order to bring to light the depth of his commitment and the platform of his approach in the defense of humanity.

An event that made the world a safer place.

The event was not ushered in by great deeds of heroism of the type for which heroes of war are routinely honored and remembered in history books. Something totally different happened here. The key to the success of his intervention, an intervention that has made the world a saver place, was not an act of valor, but was the result of an idea born by the rigors of scientific reasoning that led to the discovery of a range of fundamental principles that underlie civilization. The heroism that might have been was in his daring to counter all those who had engineered the cold war and had a vested interest in maintaining it. His daring, of course, earned him not the customary badge of honor, but the tragedy of political persecution and subsequent incarceration. Nevertheless, the powers that be could not hold back the power of the idea that he had unleashed. Even while he was locked up in prison the idea bore fruit, and the cold war ended. (The LaRouche Case)

Unfortunately, we find the world today at the threshold of much greater dangers than during the cold war. These include a looming global financial and economic disintegration, a renewed commitment to the actual and first use of nuclear weapons, and an emerging shock wave on the biological front as the spread of starvation around the world created an ideal breeding ground for new and old diseases. More than two decades ago Lyndon LaRouche had predicted such occurrences.  He had warned against precisely the same dangers that the world is now facing. Of course he was able to give these warnings, not by the magic of a crystal ball, but by understanding the fundamental processes that were unleashed by the policies that had been put into practice. Nor has Lyndon LaRouche ceased to the present day to intervene on the global scene with counteracting policy proposals, in an effort to save our civilization and humanity from the certain impending doom which the continuation of the present policy platform assures.

While Lyndon LaRouche is still facing the wrath of those who profit from the conditions that have created the various crises we now face, there is a growing awareness unfolding in many circles around the world that there are no acceptable alternatives to his proposals for addressing the unfolding global crisis. Whether humanity is spared the agonies of a new dark age in which the population levels will dwindle to very small numbers in the near term, or to zero in a nuclear war that is becoming evermore likely, depends on the success Lyndon LaRouche will have in the near future to be once again in a position where the necessary policies can be enacted. Should he be successful, our lives may be spared once again. If not, our future may be bleak, because there exists no commitment among those who control the world to reverse the policies that have brought us once again to the brink of doom. Actually, whether or not Lyndon LaRouche will be successful depends on us all. We all live in this world together and shape our common destiny. With this in mind let us look at Lyndon LaRouche as a person, and at his first major intervention that may have saved our lives during the somewhat less critical years of the cold war.
 


Lyndon LaRouche has many faces. He is without a doubt the most slandered, cheated, and reviled politician of the twentieth century. He is by the same token also one of humanity's greatest patriots, and one of its greatest scientific geniuses.

In terms of his personal history, Lyndon LaRouche is a veteran of World War II. He served in India where the inhumanity of colonialism was probably among the worst in the world. It may have been there, in India, where his resolve developed to do something meaningful to improve the human condition, especially the stark and totally unnecessary poverty that has been created within many nations. It may have also been his background as a scientific thinker, which caused him to recognize quite early in his studies of the principles of physical economy, that the policies that were being pursued by the United States government, and those of the western world, were moving society totally into the wrong direction. They were trending towards generating the conditions for the physical disintegration of the economies and the societies around the world, and towards the escalation of wars and the eventual collapse of the world-financial system. The end result of this is presently looming on the horizon.

Lyndon LaRouche also recognized that the same insanity that was evident in the economic area, had been moving the world ever closer to a rapid realization of a nuclear war that threatened to destroy humanity. That's when he intervened. His idea for solving the cold war crisis was actually a simple one, based on some rather fundamental principles. His intervention consisted of three elements.

The first element of his idea was to propose the creation of an active defense system against nuclear missiles, based on new physical principles, such as beam weapons. This radical type of approach was necessary in order to create a system that would be at least a magnitude more efficient than the weapons delivery systems were in penetrating the nations' defenses. LaRouche's idea was buth brilliant and practical, for which it was eventually accepted by President Ronald Regan who announced the concept to the world as the proposed Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI).

The second element of LaRouche's idea involved another type of his personal intervention in the cold war. He became engaged in back-channel negotiations with representatives of the Soviet Union for the purpose of his equally brilliant proposal to the Soviet Union that it, and the western nations, should join in a common effort to develop his proposed SDI defense system for the benefit of all nations. This appears to have been the key element of his intervention for the reason that it would have created prosperity throughout the world by advancing scientific and technological development. Equally as important than this was also the cooperative atmosphere that a joint development effort would have created, which would have established a platform for unity where deep divisions ruled the day. The Soviet representatives liked the idea at first, although they later rejected it, apparently being pressured to do so.

The third element of LaRouche's idea was the one that made his intervention fail proof. As he told the Soviet's, it didn't really matter which option they would choose, either to cooperate or to reject his proposal, because the cold war would end in either case in five years time. He specifically warned the Soviet's that if they should reject the proposed cooperative effort and attempt to develop such a system on their own as they would have to do, their economy would collapse in five years under the burden that this effort would impose. And so it was.


Background: The SDI

 (except from a speech by Lyndon LaRouche Feb. 5 1997, on the occasion of the release of the Eurasian Land Bridge report)

Now, the background to this, on how we got into this business. It started formally in 1982-83, when I was invited by representatives of the U.S. Executive Branch, to set up a back-channel discussion with the Soviet government. And, it was agreed that the subject of my discussion would include, among other things, a presentation of my design for a strategic ballistic missile defense, to be mutually supported, hopefully, by both governments, the development of which would be utilized to provide new technologies for a recovery of the world in general from the economic disaster which was already then in progress.

During 1982, to February of 1983, I conducted negotiations through this back-channel with the Soviet government. In February, the Soviet government turned down the policy recommendation I made, though they were still interested in economic discussions. But, in March of the same year, March 23, the President of the United States, Reagan, adopted and presented the policy which Id been discussing with the Soviets, and which became known as the Strategic Defense Initiative.

Now, in the process of those discussions, in February, my last meeting then with the Soviet representative (I met the same gentleman recently in Russia. We had some reminiscence on these things); but, in my last meeting, I warned him, that if the President of the United States were to offer the kind of cooperation which I had outlined to him and his government, and that if the Soviet government refused that offer of Reagan's, then, within about five years, the Soviet economy would collapse.

Now, 1988 came, five years later. In Berlin, on Oct. 12 of 1988, as a part of my Democratic Presidential nomination campaign at the time, I gave a Columbus Day press conference in Berlin, in which I announced the imminent disintegration of the Comecon and Warsaw Pact in their present form, and indicated both that Poland would probably be the first nation to break out of the Comecon-Warsaw Pact alliance, and, secondly, that Berlin would likely become, soon, the designated new capital of a unified Germany.

I indicated that, from the standpoint of the United States, that for the period of the coming administration, the primary policy question on the table of the United States, would be the breakup of the Warsaw Pact-Comecon alliance, and that the United States would have to base its global policy on that fact as a central feature of the strategic landscape, for the coming period. I also broadcast this on a national television broadcast here in the United States, a televised copy of that address which I gave in Berlin, at the Berlin press conference.

Within about a year from there, as we all know, the Berlin Wall began to crumble. It had started, as I had indicated earlier, in Poland, which was the first nation to break the Comecon bonds. Then, in October-December of 1989, the Berlin Wall crumbled.

And, there were two policies on the table of the world. One was the policy which I had indicated, that we must reach out to the former Soviet Union and the states of Eastern Europe, to create a new form of economic cooperation, based in part on the fact that in the Soviet military-industrial sector, there was one of the most important concentrations of strategic machine tool capability in the world. And, the collaboration between the United States, and France, and Germany, especially Germany, with that sector, would be the potential science-technology driver for a generalized world recovery. That was my policy.


We live today in a world hat has been determined by the result a failure. The failure is not so much linked in the general rejection of LaRouche's universal development proposal. The failure has a deeper root, which lies in the general rejection of the principles of civilization. The principles of civilization are being mocked in an intentional war against it, which might be termed the "war of empire versus civilization."

The rejection of LaRouche's proposals, especially his worldwide development proposals, must be seen as an element of the imperial war against any potential renaissance and against civilization in general. This endless war, always taking on new shapes, has been the pattern of empires historically defending their precarious existence against the principles of civilization. In this war society itself has been enlisted to carry the torch against the very foundation for its existence. LaRouche's interventions have always been focused on breaking this enlistment of society in the service of empire that has as its primary goal society's self-destruction.

Considering the scope and the globally assumed power of empire, those interventions that hit at the very heart of that power rarely succeed with their first step. But the ideas remain that are intervening in the way the fabric of society is spun, and in time these ideas will make their own demands, and if society remains alert enough, they will succeed.

Obviously, at the present time the war of empire versus civilization is still moving forward with devastating consequences. However, the insanity of this process is rather obvious.

We live in a world today in which investors steal from each other as they fight in the financial markets over the few scraps that are left of the physical economy. We have created a world that is incredibly divided, torn by artificially stirred up ethnic turmoil, countless wars, terrorist actions, most of which are lavishly financed by the West for the West's selfish narrow reasons. We live in a world in which most nations have become so isolated into impotent entities that they can no longer protect their own existence against the globalized predatory powers. Russia has lost 80% of its industries by this process of globalized stealing, and is loosing a million people a year through starvation and starvation induced diseases as the industries no longer exist that once supported their existence. But most of all, we live in a world in which the financial system that is supposed to support the world's economies, has looted and collapsed these economy to a level far below what is required to maintain a civilization. By this collapse, which is becoming increasingly apparent in physical terms, the system's super inflated financial values are becoming more and more meaningless.

All this means that we have entered a terminal phase in which the collapse of four major systems is coming together, and this with the same effect and the same certainty of it, as the collapse of the Soviet system. We have the physical and biological system of our world collapsing into poverty and pandemics of rapidly increasing virulent diseases. We have the political world destabilized by countless wars and divisions with a trend that is fast moving out of anyone's control. We a have a financial system in the world that has become meaningless by its own self-destruction, which like a bubble is doomed to disintegrate into a spray of fine mist which blows away with the wind. And to top it all off, we sit on the most explosive arsenal of nuclear weapons that has ever been created, while the chorus of those who propose to use nuclear weapons, and to use them first, is growing by the day.

But what is humanity's response to this threat, the biggest threat in its entire history? Its response is to do nothing; to let the catastrophe unfold. Humanity's response to unfolding crises has always been like that. It saw the developments towards World War I, but reacted only after the war had erupted. Humanity likewise saw the developments towards World War II, and again, it reacted only after the holocaust had erupted and threatened the world. Then, finally, humanity struggled to put the fire out, but at an enormous cost. Humanity has thus lived for centuries in a reactionary more. The problem is, that if this trend is continued humanity will not survive, because the next fire that it is presently contend to let erupt, the nuclear fire, will end human existence. The presently unfolding biological holocaust that is still in the primary stage, may have a similar effect, an effect that is already far worse than that of the black plaque of 14th century. The impending world-financial disintegration will likewise add its own type of horror towards the unfolding new dark age, which may once again last for many centuries to come, which humanity might not survive.

The point is, we simply cannot afford to continue to live in a reactionary mode when processes unfold with devastating consequences that cannot be reversed. The parameters that we live under today have totally changed from those that had governed the scene during World War II. The fires we prepare today cannot be put out with a reactionary response once they erupt. A reactionary response is no longer an option. We have no choice, but to change our responses in accord with the new reality that we face, if we wish to survive in the long term. Let me illustrate this point with the story of a bird.

There existed a species of birds in North America that had developed a unique reactionary response to predatory attacks. Whenever a bird of the flock was attacked and injured, the entire flock would group around the injured bird to protect it from further attacks. This reaction had served the species well for all the thousands of years of its existence, but it didn't protect it from the modern farmers' guns. The farmers would only have to injure one single bird and the rest would group around it in a tight circle.  At this point the farmers could fire at will, and they did. By the failure of this species to change its response to a looming danger, the species was absolutely doomed to extinction. It was eradicated within a few years.

Of course one cannot expect a species of birds to change its defensive response that has been developed over millennia, but one can certainly expect humanity to achieve such a feat. Humanity is the brightest star of intelligence in the living universe. It should certainly be capable of changing its response to new situations from a reactive mode to an intelligent mode, as this has become necessary today. This is what Lyndon LaRouche is proposing as a necessity in order to protect humanity and its civilization from an otherwise certain doom. Lyndon LaRouche's policy proposals can only be understood correctly in this context.

Unfortunately, humanity is not accustomed to think in terms of policies that are based outside the traditional reactionary platform. For this reason LaRouche's policies are rejected even if they are necessary. Thus, virtually no one stands up in LaRouche's defense when the man is slandered, reviled, imprisoned, and otherwise persecuted by those who profit from the destruction of humanity. Still, the urgency of what must be accomplished demands that the man fights on, which he does, and that he is victorious in the end.

Evidently, only a few of the current world leaders do even recognize that there is a crisis unfolding, or are paid not to say so, since they continue with the same policies that have created the crisis in the first place. One must assume, therefore, that these leaders are in effect criminally insane, or morally unfit as they lack the intelligence that is common to man. Unfortunately, their irrationality appears to be contagious since the public loves their irrationality, which thereby demonstrates the public's own insanity. This, fortunately, is not a natural trend, but one that has been carefully cultivated by the controllers of the media who desire such an outcome for their own agendas. One can only hope that this cultivated general insanity is temporary, like a deep sleep that a person can awake from at an instant. Such a shock-caused awakening has happened before. It happened, for instance, when Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese fleet. On this single day of the attack an entire became radically altered as if the population woke from its slumber. Of course this type of response is a reactionary response which is inappropriate in the nuclear armed age, or at the time of an approaching crises with similar consequences.

Lyndon LaRouche is fully aware that a reactionary response is inappropriate for everyone of the crises looming ahead. This is clearly reflected in his policy proposals which are designed to head off the eruption of the greatest catastrophe ever. Still, it may take the shock of a major eruption in the financial arena before humanity wakes up to the reality which it presently refuses to acknowledge in its dreamlike existence. Lyndon LaRouche hopes that a second Pearl Harbor type shock will accomplish what intelligent reasoning should have accomplished years ago. But when this occurs, it will be humanity's final opportunity, if indeed it will not be too late by then. No one can predict how much time remains from the eruption of a world-financial crisis until the total disintegration of the entire global system occurs, with nuclear arms hanging in the wings. One thing is certain, however, the fundamental shift from the present reactionary mode of response, to an intelligent mode of response, must be accomplished before the global disintegration begins, or before a nuclear war is started in an attempt to overshadow the world-financial disintegration. It takes no great genius to comprehend that our present civilization, and perhaps humanity as a whole, will not survive the consequences if humanity fails to preempt the presently unfolding crisis. The destructive effect of a shock wave generated by the simultaneous collapse on multiple major fronts lies far beyond what humanity will likely be able to contain.

In respect to LaRouche's first intervention for saving humanity, when he offered the SDI as a joint development project to the Soviet's, and the Soviet Union elected to refuse his offer. It should be noted that the Soviet Union refused to respond to what was necessary. Consequently it collapsed and ceased to be. Humanity has the same option in responding to today's crises, with the same outcome. The present period is hypercritical one for making the right choices that will avert the otherwise inevitable. For this reason Lyndon LaRouche is proposing that the present world-financial system be put through an orderly bankruptcy reorganization, since it is bankrupt anyway, in order that the core elements of the system, that are essential for society to exist, can be saved. He warns, however, that this must be done before the whole thing disintegrates.

Naturally, a proposal of such a magnitude may seem preposterous. It would certainly keep the courts busy for years, as people would be haggling over who gets what of whatever real wealth may still exist in the system. The tragedy is that the system has decayed to such a point that LaRouche's proposal of drastic measures are nothing more than the minimal responses that are necessary in order to save what is left for keeping the economies operating.  What else assures society that pensions continue to be paid, that food, fuel, transportation, power, water, and communication systems continue to be available, and so forth. When the financial system disintegrates in a chain reaction collapse, most of the essentials for human survival will at this point become unavailable.  This type of failure is not an option. The physical supply infrastructures, which are generally called the physical economy, will cease to function when the supporting financial infrastructure ceases to function. This is already happening to some degree in the energy supply sector of the economy where rates have increased 100 fold in some instances. When this happens totally and on a global scale, people will die. This sort of thing has happened before, mildly. and is already happening again on a smaller scale in Russia and Africa, and in other deprived nations where millions of people die every year from the causes of austerity induced starvation. This is what Lyndon LaRouche hopes to prevent on a total and global scale. People can't live without food, heat, water, and transportation. The present attitude among those of the ruling circles who see the crisis unfolding, is to set up measures to save themselves, and the wealthy, and to let the common people die.

 Lyndon LaRouche suggests that from a certain point on a recourse may not be possible by any means. He points out that every day of delay for doing the right thing, makes the ensuing consequences harsher. He proposes, that as a first necessary step towards creating stability again, a new Bretton Woods type international financial agreement needs to be put together that reestablishes fixed currency exchange rates between the nations. This step is necessary in order to take the national currencies out of the gambling arena. Such a type of agreement had originally been set up during a conference in the town of Bretton Woods, New York, under the direction of President F. D. Roosevelt, near the end of World War II. The world-financial system that was created out of this agreement served as the backbone for the economic prosperity during the postwar period which became one of the great periods of prosperity of the last century. All of this came under attack by the speculators who demanded greater opportunities for looting. The system was finally killed in 1971 when the speculators demanded of the American President that the nation's currency should be converted into a gambling chip, the value of which was to be determined by the speculators themselves as a means for wringing out huge profits from the national wealth.

Lyndon LaRouche also proposes that the people of the USA, and of other nations, establish for their nation a national central bank that issues low cost credits for infrastructure development and reindustrialization, with which to enrich the nation as a whole. The presently operating, private central banking system, with its outrageous profit demands, makes anyone of these types of development projects totally impossible to finance, even if they are necessary for the nation.

On the international scene, Lyndon LaRouche proposes a return to the principle of sovereign nation-states as a platform for creating peace through world wide industrial development. He sees grave dangers in maintaining a precarious peace in the shadow of countless wars, such as is happening today through the imposition of global austerity measures against the background of the West's lavish financing of terrorism throughout the world.

Naturally, LaRouche's proposals are immensely demanding in terms of what needs to be accomplished in order to save the lives of humanity from the impending doom of either a nuclear war or a collapse into a long period of dark ages, which, in either case, only a few people will survive. Therefore, the demands that the present situation is imposing on him, are equally as great. The demands are so severe that he found it necessary to fight an election battle for the office of the President of the United States of America in order to accomplish what must be accomplished, since there are no competent contenders for the nation to choose from.  For this he suffered the most vile attacks, was cheated out of many tens of thousands of votes that people had cast for him, had his elected representatives denied entrance to caucus meetings, and had even his international observer seen forcibly removed from the caucuses.  Still he fights on.

Whether Lyndon LaRouche succeeds depends entirely on the support he get at the grass roots level of humanity. Actually the reverse is true.  One should rephrase this sentence. The truth is, whether humanity succeeds in giving itself a chance to survive the unfolding crisis, and to continue its civilization, depends entirely on its commitment to support Lyndon LaRouche. It may sound crazy that the future of humanity should depend on one single man, but so it is. Indeed, LaRouche got angry himself about this vulnerability, especially since people in key positions such as his, usually get assassinated. "You have no right to be so stupid" he is reported to have said about the present society's lacking response to its own most desperate needs, so "that the responsibility of dealing with this crisis falls on me alone, because of that."

Actually, the kind of situation that LaRouche finds himself in has existed many times in history.  In fact, the most profound changes in history have almost always been started by the intervention of a single man who has thereby changed the world. Nevertheless, this is not a healthy situation since the same holds true in reverse, for assassinations. This is also the reason why assassinations occur, and the reason why Lyndon LaRouche had been railroaded into prison on behalf of the Soviet Union. There exists government documentation that the request for his elimination from the political scene came from the Soviet Union.

In the final analysis, it is never a healthy situation that so much depends on a single man as we have it today. Still, there is no one else on the political horizon who understands the unfolding forces as deeply as he does, who understood them already thirty years ago and had warned about them, even then. It is for this reason, perhaps, that one has reason to hope that Lyndon LaRouche will ultimately be successful in saving humanity again. One can already notice a slow awakening to the crisis throughout the world, and this directly because of his tireless efforts. Unfortunately the awakening is happening mostly in foreign lands. The spark, however, the ideas of reason that already have changed the world once in the past, may become a flame in our time, a flame that lights the torch for victory in a race gallantly run. The real victory, of course, if it occurs, will then be ours as we celebrate the survival of our civilization, that is, if Lyndon LaRouche succeeds once again.
