Science in its Essence: On the Subject of ‘Insight’  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche has recently emphasized the importance of the concept of “insight” for understanding the mechanisms of evil which characterized the most notable writings of the leading Fabian Society figure H.G. Wells. Here, LaRouche returns “to that notion of insight for conceptualizing the root-causes of the present plunge of world civilization, into the prospect of an immediate new dark age of mankind, a prospect caused by the role of the same standpoint of Wells in his threatening the planet as a whole, with what has now become its currently accelerating plunge toward an abyss.” The solution to this crisis lies in grasping the essence of what distinguishes the human being from the beasts.

Correction

In last week’s issue, the article “Britain’s War vs. the de Gaulle-Adenauer Common Agricultural Policy,” had an error on page 31. The quote from a French Senator should have said that “the British producers, in essence, get their income from ‘deficiency payments’ (a mechanism of direct aid given when market prices are lower than production costs)” (emphasis added).
