Program No. 729
“The Last Chance for Civilization?” Pt. 3

On Nov. 1, 2008 Lyndon LaRouche issued what he called the “November 11 Resolution” for a private meeting to take place on that date, in which he presented the indispensable measures to be taken in the face of the now hopelessly bankrupt world monetary system. He identified the period between Nov. 11-19, as decisive for forcing a change in policy, at least among a leading group representing the institution of the U.S. Presidency. During that 9-day period, in addition to the Nov. 11 meeting, Mr. LaRouche gave an international webcast on Nov. 18, and a second private meeting on Nov. 19.

Featured in this edition of The LaRouche Connection, is the conclusion of the discussion session of the international webcast event in Washington, DC, Nov. 18, sponsored by the LaRouche Political Action Committee. The entire event was moderated by Harley Schlanger.

From the Discussion Session:

From a group of state legislators, who had introduced the Homeowners and Bank Protection Act (HBPA) in their state legislatures: State Sen. Constance Johnson (Oklahoma City, OK); State Sen. Joey Pendelton (Hopkinsville, KY); State Rep. Jameela Nashid (St. Louis, MO): What should we do in terms of the HBPA, considering it has been blocked by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi; what remedies are there for state governments, where you have growing unemployment, and huge deficits?

From someone in New York City: Please assess the risks to prominent figures other than President-elect Obama.

From the Italian Senate: Considering the fact of Mr. Obama’s election not being a solution in itself, isn’t the best approach to try to influence him, so that it will be possible to adopt the New Bretton Woods system?

From a Chinese scholar: “You say Chinese workers are underpaid, and that the Chinese government has underpaid them to compete in the global labor market for cheaper production costs. But, raising labor costs has already made many companies bankrupt, so how do you take care of the unemployment issues of the Chinese population?”

From an economist and a banker from the U.S. Southwest: “Is it still your view that this bailout package, the pumping of money into the financial system, that we’re still on the verge of a hyperinflationary explosion?”

Feride Gillesberg (Denmark): “How much power does Europe have in [your proposal for a Four Power Agreement], and what should the Europeans do? What is the relationship between the American system and the European parliamentary system?”

From a young Classical artist in the heart of Europe: “Apart from the study of nature and her principles, what advice could you give to young Classical artists in a time of post-modernism? Once we have perfected our skills, where are we to turn? Are there people in the world today willing to support us, and willing to listen? How do we recognize those who are truly noble from those who are crooks?”
