A Branch in the Road of History  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.’s keynote address on Feb. 17, to the annual Presidents’ Day weekend conference of the Schiller Institute and International Caucus of Labor Committees, in Reston, Virginia. The theme of the conference was, “Is the United States Under Bush Doomed?”

“How can we win? We can win on the home front, and otherwise, by returning to economic policies that once worked for us. Two: We can deal with the world at large, by making partnerships, especially with people in Eurasia, who are our most likely large-scale partners, which will then enable us, at the same time, to bring justice to Central and South America, and Africa.

“We need a movement, a moral movement in this country, which looks at itself, at the nation, at the world, in those ways. We need a movement in this country, which becomes a voice heard around the world, saying, ‘In the United States, there are people who think like this.’ You get that voice going out, from the United States, into China, into Korea, into Japan, into Southeast Asia, into India, Central Asia, Europe, Africa, South and Central America. Then you will get a response, a lifting up of eyes and hopes among people who are desperately oppressed now, who will say, ‘We have a friend, inside the United States. Let’s hope he takes over.’”
