A Tribute: Mozart's Reqiuem
Happy Thanksgiving from LaRouchePAC. As you celebrate this most American of holidays, we wanted to give you a gift to clear the mind and help shape the way forward. As you know, we view the recent electoral earthquakes throughout the world as signaling the birth of a potentially profound new human era in the history of mankind – rejecting the nostrums of perpetual war, economic Malthusianism, and savage genocide against both domestic and foreign populations which have characterized the Obama/Bush legacy. Coupled with the bold economic and scientific development perspective put forward by China, there is an actual potential for great and wondrous change.
On January 19, 2014, 50 years to the date when Mozart's Requiem was performed just months after President John F. Kennedy's assassination, at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston Massachusetts, members of LaRouche’s political movement commemorated the occasion with a performance of Mozart’s Requiem at the same Cathedral. The mass was introduced with select quotes from John F. Kennedy challenging the American population to realize its truly human nature through building great economic development projects and exploring and colonizing space.
We hope you will find the time to listen to the above performance over the holiday and to share it with friends. Just as the Kennedy assassination marked a descent by our population into the hellish conditions which have characterized the recent past, if we embrace the mental state evoked by both the Mozart Mass itself and the mental challenge posed by our former President, a far better future appears within our grasp, just on the horizon.
