The Aquarian Conspiracy’s Road to Orwell’s 1984  

by Criton Zoakos

The New Left, international terrorism, the counterculture, the homosexuals, the proliferation of psychotropic drugs-these are not “sociological phenomena,” but carefully planned projects of the social-psychology research institutions. Their creators now publicly proclaim them all “a single movement.” Patiently and methodically, the population of the United States is being brainwashed.

How EIR Knew Where Volcker Was Leading  

by Vin Berg

What happens to an industrial superpower if you increase interest rates, reduce energy consumption levels, and inhibit exports? An audience of professional economists, businessmen, farmers and foreign embassy representatives in Washington were stunned as EIR’s Dr. Uwe Parpart, a designer of the LaRouche- Riemannian economic model, explained that America faced not only depression, but loss of the very capacity for recovery if the Volcker program plus “energy conservation” were continued for even 3-6 months more.
