Julian Huxley’s Baby Boomers: The Little Lords of the Unzipped Flies  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. takes up the theme of Sir Julian’s work on the subject of “neoteny,” in which a certain lower species spins off a variety which does not develop into the normal adult phase, but reproduces itself sexually in the childhood phase of what had been the parent species’ standard metagenesis.

“Some might to wish to think of an image of twins copulating and reproducing within the womb,” LaRouche writes.

“Copulation among co-inhabitants of the particular womb, is not exactly what happened to the post-World War II ‘Baby Boomer’ generation, but, in a certain sense, the idea is a provocatively relevant near miss. This is key for understanding what is recognizable as ‘The Baby Boomer’ syndrome in both North America and western and central Europe today.”

Carville: Dean Sabotaged Nov. 7 Democratic Landslide  

by Debra Hanania-Freeman
