Keynoted by Lyndon LaRouche and Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the conference in Rüsselsheim, Germany, was attended by about 350 people from 25 nations.
Speech by Lyndon LaRouche. As the planet faces a plunge into the worst civilizational crisis since the 14th-Century New Dark Age, European nations have been stripped of their sovereignty, LaRouche said.

He, like most of the world's presently installed governments, is certain that he might be able to manage the situation, and would probably never discover that he had failed." Such is the delusion of the British oligarchy, which will itself be destroyed, by the very policies with which it hopes to destroy the United States. "Oscar Wilde would have been sadly amused."
