The Astounding High Cost of `Free' Energy

The world-wide shortage of electricity cannot be rectified by wind or solar power, so those who advocate these "free" sources of power are condemning the majority of the Earth's human population to backwardness. Solving the problem requires examining the two most important concepts in evaluating a power source: energy density and energy flux density. The only rational conclusion is that we must build 6,000 gigawatts of generating capacity, and only nuclear power will do the job. By Laurence Hecht.

Science

The Meaning of Physical Time

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. continues the discussion of physical time that he began in last week's issue, with his article "Nations as Dynamical." That report, he writes, concluded with a summary outline of the economist's working definition of physical time, as opposed to clock time. Now, still responding to the same relevant question posted after his Jan. 22 webcast address, "I focus on some essential implications of the role of physical time as such. I compare physical time, as a conception of a principle of physical space-time, with the related concept of physical space."

Economics

Like `Free Energy,' There Is No
Such Thing as `Free Money'

Even though the government can create unlimited amounts of money at essentially no cost, the effects will be disastrous if that money is not spent to create wealth. The best-known example is Weimar Germany during 1922-23, when prodigious amounts of free money were printed, which produced no wealth, and left the nation in ruins.

The Fascists Versus FDR, Then and Now

The imperial bankers, heirs of the people who joined with the fascists and opposed President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s and '40s, have launched a renewed campaign to assassinate the character and accomplishments of FDR. Their goal is to prevent the Obama Administration from taking up Roosevelt's campaign for the general welfare, and against the "economic royalists."

Pelosi, Frank Schemed
To Bankrupt the United States

Lyndon LaRouche has renewed his call for the ouster of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, and charged that both Pelosi and Rep. Barney Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, collaborated with Felix Rohatyn and George Soros, to kill legislation LaRouche had advanced in 2007, which would have protected the U.S. economy from the crisis now hitting it.

U.S. Must Embrace Truth About Gaza;
Break Sykes-Picot Cycle

A U.S. intervention into the Israel-Palestinian conflict has to be based on justice and truth, a rejection of all attacks on civilians, especially Israel's "doctrine of disproportionate force," and, most importantly, breaking free of the same Sykes-Picot imperial game that created the conflict in the first place.
