Let’s Leap to the Future, Abandoning the Doomed British Empire - LaRouchePAC Fireside Chat
Our founding philosophers, Ben Franklin and Gottfried Leibnitz, said that we live in the best of all possible worlds and that the creative powers of the human mind bring us into harmony with the changing and constantly being discovered universe. That notion, and its implications for how human societies are to be ordered, is at the center of our Constitution’s preamble, as Lyndon LaRouche repeatedly stressed. It is one of the great and lawful ironies of history that as the British Empire moved to destroy, once and for all, the great scientific and technological optimism which this generated in the American population, following Franklin Roosevelt’s death, China and other great nations were fervently studying the American System of political economy, a system which had birthed the most powerful economy the world had ever known until its recent and deliberate destruction. Many of those studies arose from the concerted campaign of Lyndon and Helga Zepp LaRouche. In China, last week, the second Belt and Road forum took place, generating cultural optimism and bestirring the imaginations of all who attended – creating a hunger for great projects to conquer the last frontiers of impoverishment and underdevelopment here in Earth while turning our eyes toward space and colonization of the Moon.
Here in the United States, the situation can be characterized as “combined and uneven development.” The mainstream media, whole sections of the establishment and Democratic Party together with Republican neo cons and toadies -- stare at the great reckoning coming their way as the coup against the President slowly implodes. They are desperate to reverse this process, madly ranting at Trump, China, and Russia. The cry for sanity coming from the population, for an economic revival, for an end to the drug and despair induced genocide of our youth and laboring populations, is being heard, but it is not yet loud and demanding enough. Trump worked out a deal for major infrastructure development which will depend on whether LaRouche’s Four Laws are implemented now. The same can be said about the President’s bold approach to returning to the Moon. And, if the coup is to be ended, its actual source must be recognized and absorbed into the public consciousness. That is why Bill Binney and his discoveries are critical. Join us for tonight’s discussion.
