Latest From The Worldwide LaRouche Youth Movement
Like the little boy in Hans Christian Andersen's famous story, the LaRouche Youth Movement (LYM) appears to be the only ones left on Capitol Hill who are unafraid to tell the truth. As Lyndon LaRouche has stressed on many occasions, the Congress's recent foolish behavior, first in allowing the U.S. auto sector to be gutted, and now with their nearly unanimous support for Israel in what could become World War III, threatens to bring on the collapse of civilization. The members of Congress, especially those within the Democratic Party, have been swindled by fascist financier Felix Rohatyn. They are now carrying on their sophist's charade, in the vain hope that no one will point out their naked immorality.
Over the past several months, following the initiatives by LaRouche, the LYM has led a nationwide fight to rebuild the country. Through mass organizing, and lobbying the Congress, the LYM has worked to turn LaRouche's proposal, "The Economic Recovery Act of 2006," into legislation. The proposal calls for the immediate re-tooling of the bankrupt auto industry's machine shops, to convert to production for infrastructure development and begin to reverse the disastrous effects of globalization.
During the week leading up to LaRouche's July 20 webcast (see EIR, July 28), the LYM, along with dozens of union leaders and state elected officials from across the nation, lobbied Congress, holding over 30 meetings with Congressional offices. In spite of our insistence upon the immediacy of the economic crisis, as expressed by the first-hand accounts of many of the local officials, and in spite of a very viable solution to that crisis identified by the "Economic Recovery Act of 2006," as yet no such bill has been introduced. This failure, especially on the part of the Democrats, can be largely attributed to the malignant influence of Felix Rohatyn, as this has been documented in EIR. The LYM's organizing has become increasingly focussed on removing this corrupting influence.
The following cases will give a glimpse into an aspect of a political process which we are shaping....
