The Senile British Lion:
Evil, Wicked & Stupid!
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

February 11, 2010 —The small krait snake is probably among the weakest, most poisonous, and most stupid snakes in the world. However, there is less power to rule in that creature's poison, than in the people's fear of his suspected presence. Poisonous old, and half-brain-dead empires, like today's British empire, are dangerous in that same way.
No probably successful strategic approach to correcting the presently onrushing general, planetary economic-breakdown-crisis, will exist, until we have defined the relevant form of application of a ``Glass-Steagall'' solution for the present type of world breakdown-crisis. If civilization is to continue to exist for the near future decades, even during the few months immediately ahead, all monetarists' standards proposed for addressing the presently onrushing near term's general monetary, breakdown-crisis, of the planet as a whole, must now be cancelled.
Perhaps, some readers' standard objection to my own approach, will be words to the effect, that ``the world is not ready to consider such a radical approach as that you suggest!'' (The fear of the krait again!)....

The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism, by Stanislav M. Menshikov
March 23, 2007
—EIR News Service announced the publication of
The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism,
by Professor Stanislav M. Menshikov.

Translated from the Russian by Rachel Douglas, the book is an authoritative study of the Russian economy during the first 15 years after the break-up of the Soviet Union. The Preface, by EIR founder and contributing editor Lyndon LaRouche, titled, "Russia's Next Step," poses the need for U.S. policy-makers to study and grasp the "disease" presented in this book, since it represents "an economic global pandemic which we must all join to defeat."

  • The Senile British Lion:
    Evil, Wicked & Stupid
    by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

    Today's British Empire can be usefully compared to the small, stupid, but highly poisonous krait snake. While dangerous, the British imperial system is halfbraindead, and must be eliminated, and replaced by an American System-style international credit system. 'No probably successful strategic approach to correcting the presently onrushing general, planetary economic-breakdown-crisis, will exist, until we have defined the relevant form of application of a 'Glass-Steagall' solution for the present type of world breakdown-crisis. If civilization is to continue to exist for the near future decades, even during the few months immediately ahead, all monetarists' standards proposed for addressing the presently onrushing near term's general monetary, breakdown-crisis, of the planet as a whole, must now be cancelled.'
