- Part 3-
the Inevitable Destiny of Mankind
Who rides so late through the night dark and drear?
The father it is, with his infant so dear;
He holds his boy tightly, clasp'd in his arm,
He holds him safely, he keeps him warm.
"Oh, come, thou dear infant! oh come thou with me!
For many a game I will play with thee;
In my world lovely flowers unfold,
My mother shall grace thee with garments of gold."
"Wilt's go, then, dear infant, wilt 's go with me there?
My daughters shall tend thee with sisterly care
My daughters, by night on the dance floor, you'll lead,
They'll cradle and rock thee, and sing thee to sleep."
"My father, my father, dost thou not see,
How Erl King is showing his daughters to me?
"Oh I love thee, I'm charm'd by your beauty, dear boy!
But, lad if you aren't willing, overwhelming force I'll employ."
"My father, my father, he seizes me fast,
Sorely, Erl King has hurt me at last."
The father now gallops, with terror half wild,
He holds in his arms the shuddering child;
He reaches his farmstead with toil and dread,—
In his arms, the child, motionless, is dead.
and the music of the Erlking (Empire-King) was written a long time ago
in today's world it tells the story of depopulation - the relentless policy of empire

- doom for empire or doom for all -
This destiny of doom is well expressed by Tchaikovsky in the last movement of his last symphony, as if he had given up all hope. This may have been the case in his life. It is said that he committed suicide soon thereafter. If this was so, it is easy to see why. He found himself boxed in by the smallness of society, with little hope for an escape. He might also have died of one of the many diseases that flourish in the background of a small society. However, when he wrote the ending to his sixth symphony, he also wrote thereby the music of the inevitable doom of the system that fosters and feeds on the smallness of society. However, by the resulting darkness and society's collapse, the doom of empire is also assured, and thereby the dawn of the freedom of mankind.
If Tchaikovsky had understood this connection, the higher-level dynamics that move mankind to express its underlying rich qualities and power, he would not have let his music end as he did, but would have given it a bright ending and lived with it accordingly.
This is a lesson that mankind has yet to learn. At the present, mankind has resigned itself to the same ending that Tchaikovsky wrote the music for.

However, there is a new music already unfolding as the natural dynamics demand, the dynamics of mankind recognizing itself, its strength and potential, and its powers for standing tall.
Empire is doomed by its own nature, because its platform is stealing from others, rather than producing. In order to be able to do this, empire has doomed itself. It is doomed by its determination to keep mankind small, impotent, and undeveloped, to whatever degree this is possible. Towards this end it inhibits science, creates chaos wherever possible, destroys the infrastructures for living, and murders society.
In this context, and for it alone alone, the masters of empire seek the world-population to be reduced to less than two billion. By such a commitment to massive genocidal destruction, has sealed its fate. Its destiny is assured. Nothing can save it from its grave.
But is mankind is doomed with it? Yes, it is doomed likewise to the degree to which it keeps itself locked into the environment of empire in which it surrenders the power of its profound humanity, and gives up its life.
Still, the future of mankind is not locked to this destiny. Mankind has the power to unlatch itself from empire and let empire have its doom alone. No power in the universe forces society to spend its life-blood in trying to rescue what cannot, and should not, be rescued - and has no right to be rescued.
Unlatching from empire means Standing Tall
by the firewall, while empire dies,
real economic development,
tall means survival with prosperity,
Ludvig Von Beethoven knew what it means to stand tall. He has incorporated the meaning of it in the last movement of his last symphony - the choral movement of the 9th Symphony with the Ode to Joy.
on the above, to link to a video recording of the historic performance of
the choral portion,
here begins the dawn of a new age - the age of humanist renewal in the form of a profound cultural revolution
Science, God-sent message
When Beethoven composed his last symphony, with the above ending, he was totally deaf. He could not hear a note of it, except in his mind. But even in his debilitation, he was beginning to understand what a human being is, and what life is. Thus he ended his last symphony (in total contrast to Thaikovsky's ending of his last symphony) with an ode to joy. more details about the music
LaRouche commented on this this type of the essential question of human existence in a morning message (without a reference to Beethoven), instead focusing on the modern world and the meaning of our living in it as an expression of uplifting joy giving meaning to our being alive in the world.
