LaRouche: Moonies Are Target Too Big To Be Missed  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the freakish head of a gnostic sex-cult, has tentacles of financial control all over the U.S. political map: from the far right of Jerry Falwell and Richard Viguerie, to African-Americans who have sold their souls to this self-proclaimed Messiah. Said Lyndon LaRouche, in proposing a campaign to target the Moon apparatus: “You pull that out, and I guarantee you, the biggest factor of loose, religious, and other kinds of nuts, in the United States, will scamper. And the rest of the mess will be cleaned up.”

The Historical Individual  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“The adequate leader for a moment at the brink of systemic crisis, like the scientific discoverer at a critical juncture in his work, must lead the nation away from its suicidal instinct, to adopt sweeping changes in the axiomatic assumptions on which that society has been operating up to that point. The would-be, ‘practical’ leader, who seeks approval from the authority of prevalent popular opinion before acting, is, like Hamlet, a menace to his nation. The needed leader, is an exceptional individual. No other will do, if the nation is to escape its imminent peril.”
