LaRouche on Hyperinflationary Crisis: We Have the Potential To Defeat the Threat of Fascism Today  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche addressed a private luncheon on Jan. 30. He began by showing a video that dramatized how hyperinflation, like that in Weimar Germany in 1922-23, is beginning to take off now, internationally. If this were to continue without change, he said, we would have a global chain-reaction process, which would end up much like the crisis in Germany that led to Hitler. LaRouche vowed, “Hitler shall not come again!” The only way to avoid a precipitous collapse, which would open the way for fascism, is for the United States, Russia, China, and India to be brought together as national forces, and agree to reorganize the bankrupt financial system.

A World System in Collapse!  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

In response to an article by Russia’s General-Colonel Leonid Ivashov (see below), Lyndon LaRouche writes that the entire planet is in the grip of a general breakdown-crisis, from which no nation can escape. LaRouche describes the origins of the oligarchic forces which got the world into the present untenable situation, and explains how the crisis can be solved, with a new international fixed-exchange-rate monetary system and the creation of credit for specific major, long-term development projects, within and among nations, in a nested set of agreements labelled “the common aims of mankind.”

Hooray for the Global Crisis!  

by Leonid Ivashov

General-Colonel Leonid Ivashov, in this article published in Russia, refers to Lyndon LaRouche’s warning of the ongoing financial collapse, and LaRouche’s call for the U.S. government to put its own financial system through bankruptcy.
