The 68ers Reviewed: Under Their Skins  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

The intention of the super-wealthy financial parasites largely controlling the U.S. Presidential campaigns, is to have the candidates destroy each other, clearing the road for a campaign by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, as the American Mussolini. To understand how this threat could emerge, look at the reality underlying the role of the “68ers,” and their deadly, Nazi-echoing, global strategic significance.

London’s Brutish Fairy-Tale  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

If you want to understand what’s going on in Britain, don’t rely on what is being said publicly, or what the press reports. The politics of the British political system itself “have arrived at a point far beyond the reach of any self-determined sort of possible remedial actions by that political system itself. The residual function thus remaining within the power of the British political system, has been to provide distracting pieces of entertainment, fairy-tales or mere gossip, whiling away the hours until the economic version of the proverbial ‘grim reaper’ arrives.”

The Monkey Trap  

by John Hoefle

What we are witnessing are not events which could lead to a financial collapse, but the disintegration of a system which has already died.
