Learn from Nawapa:
Mind or Body?
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

July 27, 2010—What is now the urgently needed launching of the NAWAPA project, demands an essential, implicit rejection of what has been the customary, ignorant but popular misconception of the functional meaning of the term ``infrastructure,'' that in respect to the mandatory principles of ``physical economy.'' We have reached the point in the history of a physical, rather than monetarist science of economy, at which, the mere survival of civilization on this planet, demands a sweeping correction of the very definition of ``economy,'' on this specific point. Therefore, I say the following to you, here and now:

With the rise of the corrupting influence of the evil Aristotle, Mediterranean-centered maritime culture of that time, lost its connection to a competent notion of the meaning of the term, ``science,'' and, therefore, also, to any competent notion of the meaning of the term, ``economy.'' Aristotle, for example, had decreed that an end be brought to the practice of human creativity, and did so, by declaring, that, in effect, the universe had been fixed, forever, by the completion of the ``Seventh Day'' of Genesis 1.

For similar reasons, no efficiently truthful meaning can be attached to that commonly taught, but incompetent notion of Euclidean geometry, a notion rooted in a ridiculous, Aristotelean misconception....

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."

  • Learn from NAWAPA:
    Mind or Body?
    by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

    While the NAWAPA project, developed in the 1960s by the Ralph M. Parsons Company, will be the greatest infrastructure project in history, it is no mere construction program, but the basis for a general recovery of our planet. 'To this end, we have combined what we have adopted as that goal for the NAWAPA project with the implications of a mission-orientation of creating the pre-conditions of man's ability to fly to, and return from a landing on Mars, that, hopefully, within this presently ongoing century, that on the condition that we can oust a far worse than merely useless President Obama from office now.'

    Will London's Puppet Israel Soon Launch Attack on Iran?

    Intelligence sources report that Netanyahu's Israel is planning a near-term strike on Iran, but there is still time for a serious diplomatic effort to resolve the outstanding issues.

    Bridging the Darien Gap

    The Darien Gap project, along with the Bering Strait tunnel, will allow the full link-up of the Americas, North and South, with the World Land-Bridge. Such an achievement, in combination with NAWAPA, would lead to an unprecedented explosion of physical-economic productivity worldwide.
