The Wonderfully Immortal Ghosts We Must Be:
Einstein Viewed Kepler
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

October 4, 2010—In my recently published ``Science & Drama! What Is Sense-Perception?,'' I had emphasized the principle of Classical tragedy as tragedy is associated with drama, as dated from Homer's Iliad and the tragedies of Aeschylus, through William Shakespeare and Friedrich Schiller. Contrary to what Heinrich Heine denounced as the Romantic School, the Classical tragedy as such, is a Hellish domain, like that of Mozart's Don Giovanni, in which there are no actual heroes, except in the leering Romantic fantasies of the credulous.
The true Classical tragedy presents us with a sheer evil which is without remedy in itself; so, Franklin Roosevelt's war-time Presidency viewed the Adolf Hitler syndrome: ``Know the enemy,'' as President Franklin Roosevelt did, even when it is, also, apparently, a (temporarily) British ally of our United States, still today.
Accordingly, in my ``Science & Drama! What is Sense-Perception?'' I had identified the adversary of true insight as being the Romantic's foolish notion of a reigning, pseudo-heroic tragedy. Therefore, as a precaution against such shallow, popular delusions, I presented a summary defense of the tragic principle of that Classical dramatic stage on which the Romantic's prancing Schiller's portrayal of Posa from Don Carlos, the most evil figures of tragedy...

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."

This Week's Cover

  • The Wonderfully Immortal Ghosts We Must Be:
    Einstein Viewed Kepler

    Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. writes, 'The subject which I address in this report, falls, historically, under the heading of the domain of the Platonic hypothesizing of the higher hypothesis.' That principle negates the beliefs associated with raw sense-perception, as Johannes Kepler showed in his original discovery of a universal physical principle of gravitation. Kepler's discovery implies, as Einstein recognizes, that the universe is implicitly finite, but without an efficient boundary. But now, LaRouche continues, we must go one step further: 'For reasons which I shall make clear, in due course, here, we must speak of the concept of 'God.' I mean that 'Creator' which is the subject of Genesis 1. The role of the notion of that Creator for physical science, will be made clearer, in due course, later in this present report.'

Economics

  • Fed's Bernanke Unleashes Hyperinflationary Chaos
    The Federal Reserve's announcement of $600 billion more in 'quantitative easing' has caused a worldwide cry of alarm. Said LaRouche: 'The effect of this decision is the same as the destruction of society. We have to understand that certain financier interests in the world, are criminal.'
  • The Food Isn't There!
    Since 2007, when the world monetary system went into terminal disintegration, the needed emergency measures have not been taken. The continuation of the globalist policies of the last 40 years which destroyed farm and food capacity, now means that people won't eat.

International

  • Schiller Institute Brings NAWAPA Approach to Chad
    The 8th Forum for Sustainable Development, which took place in N'Djamena, Chad, was dominated by Western malthusians who oppose the industrial and infrastructural development of Africa. Fortunately, two Schiller Institute representatives were on the scene to vigorously represent the opposite view: that what Africa urgently needs are great projects along the lines of the proposed North American Water and Power Alliance and the Transaqua program for African water projects.
