Toward Economic Recovery, Not Perpetual Warfare  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

For days after LaRouche’s May 1 webcast, questions continued to pour into the Democratic pre-candidate’s website by e-mail, from all over the world. However different the questions seemed, many, as he pointed out to one Macedonian, “are all asking, each in his, or her own way: What chance is there for the survival of civilizations, under the conditions defined by worsening trends in U.S. domestic and foreign policies since Sept. 11, 2001?” Here is a selection of the ongoing dialogue.

Danger for the Dollar  

by Lothar Komp

As the history of all speculative bubbles has shown, trying to let a little air out, just a bit, has never been very successful. It is quite probable that the bubble will burst with a loud splat, causing the dollar to lose one-quarter or even one-third of its value within a few weeks or months.

Utopians Bringing On ‘War of Miscalculation’ in South Asia  

by Mary Burdman

However great the danger of spreading war in the South Asian Subcontinent, the drive for war is not indigenous to India-Pakistan rivalries, or Nepalese Maoists’ anti-monarchism: These flames, aimed at breaking up a potential Russia-India-China “strategic triangle,” come from Anglo-American geopolitics.

The Northern Command: Crossing the Rubicon  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche refers to the “probably illegal” creation of a U.S. “Northern Command” to include the United States, Canada, and Mexico, as “a preparation for the Pentagon to cross the Potomac one morning, to place the U.S. Attorney-General and his minions in power, reducing the President himself to a ceremonial, or even lesser figure in the configuration.” The historic parallel is to Julius Caesar’s taking the Roman legions across the Rubicon and on into Rome, as the beginning of that empire’s inevitable decline into barbarity over the next several centuries.

Interviews

Lt. Col. David Grossman  

Colonel Grossman is a former U.S. Army Ranger and author of two books exposing how violent movies, television, and video games are giving children who have never handled a weapon “the will and the skill to kill.” He was interviewed by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, in the wake of the worst outbreak of youth violence in Germany, the April 26 school shootings in Erfurt.
