Who is Lyndon LaRouche?
American economist and statesman Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., is the pre-eminent leader of the international struggle to finish off the British Empire in its post-colonial form, which rules the United States, Europe, Africa, and in fact, most of the world. It rules through ideological manipulation (the “empire of the mind,” as Churchill once described it) and through its global financial system. LaRouche’s weapon is the power of ideas, wielded against the Empire in its time of crisis. He uses his mind like a boxer uses his fists.
He has built on the earlier foundations for a sovereign United States—conceived of as “a temple of liberty and a beacon of hope for mankind”—by Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Quincy Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy. His proposal, How the International Development Bank Will Work (1975), was an early statement of his concept of a new world order in which developing countries—and all nations, in fact—could achieve their aspirations in pursuing the common aims of mankind. That concept of a new world order is based on physical economics as opposed to any economic theory based on money values. A monetary profit can be obtained by selling heroin or engaging in speculative financial transactions, but these activities contribute no value to society; they subtract value from it.
LaRouche has fought the drug-rock-sex counterculture and defended the accomplishments of classical culture in science, art, and music as the best exemplars of the powers of human creativity. He has continuously exposed the environmentalist hoaxes as a cover for the genocidal reduction of world population through de-industrialization, since before the infamous Club of Rome published its fraudulent book, Limits to Growth, in 1972. He first campaigned for the United States Presidency in 1976. Now in his 90s, LaRouche can be seen in action at www.larouchepac.com
LaRouche was born in Rochester, New Hampshire, in 1922. He attended Northeastern University in Boston. He found “methodological incompetence” in the teaching of most courses and abandoned formal education. In World War II, he served in a noncombatant role in the U.S. Army in the China-Burma-India theatre. After the war, he took advantage of his family’s long connection to the shoe manufacturing industry and worked as an economic consultant for the shoe industry in New York City. He began to build his political movement out of classes he taught in the late 1960s at the New School for Social Research in New York. He is married to Helga Zepp-LaRouche, a German citizen, who founded and continues to direct the international Schiller Institute, an arm of the LaRouche movement.
