Program No. 711
“Averting Doom,” Pt. 1

On March 12, 2008, Lyndon LaRouche conducted an international video webcast from Washington, DC, sponsored by the LaRouche Political Action Committee. Debra Freeman moderated the event. This edition of The LaRouche Connection features the first hour of Mr. LaRouche’s opening presentation.

LaRouche: “First of all, Felix Rohatyn is guilty of something tantamount to high treason against the United States, in the fact that he is supposedly a citizen of the Unites States, but is working, to my knowledge, with sources which are intent on destroying the United States. And therefore, the man is a traitor, and should be regarded as such by any honest citizen who is not absolutely stupid.”

Mr. LaRouche immediately takes his audience back to the FDR Legacy—to March 1933, the day Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House as President—the same day he began to dictate the outlines of action which saved the Untied States from the Great Depression, and prepared the country for war to defeat British-installed fascism. And how Harry Truman worked for the ideas of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, to reverse Roosevelt’s intentions for the post-war period. Since then, the country has been put through shock after shock (McCarthyism; the assassination of John and Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr.; 9/11) to shape a cowardice in the Baby Boomer generation, which has set us up to accept the early destruction of our country.

Between 1969 and 1981 we saw the take-down of the 1944 Bretton Woods fixed-exchange-rate system, wrecking the dollar (Aug. 15, 1971); the destruction of the physical economy, via massive deregulation of the FDR-era structure of the economy; a halting of nuclear power; and a change in our culture.

LaRouche: “The time has come, when we’re now at the end of the rope. You have a great conspiracy, by the same people, on both sides of the Atlantic: one destroying the Untied States with the fascist Michael Bloomberg for President campaign; the other in Europe, by the introduction of the fascist “Lisbon Treaty” system.”

LaRouche: “This is not necessary. If we go back to our Constitutional foundations. In order to have a representative form of government, you must have nations, which are sovereign, which represent the culture of that people. Not globalization.”

The crisis we face today is a collapse of the World System. “We are not in a depression; we’re in a general breakdown crisis, comparable in form to what happened in Europe in the 14th Century, when the general dark age hit. We are in the middle of an onrushing dark age!”

Mr. LaRouche urges his listeners to use our nation’s uniquely Constitutional powers to get things moving again: “Protect the household. Keep people in their homes and communities. But you can’t save the homeowners, if you don’t save the banks! You have to save the local banks—the real ones that take deposits and loan money, and are vehicles of the Federal government and state governments to conduit funds through them, for local purposes or state purposes, and thus stimulate the growth of the economy. In this way you put people back to work, exactly the way Roosevelt did.”
