The Rebirth of Our Nation  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Although this piece was composed nearly a week before the Earthshaking events of Feb. 15, LaRouche recalls the process leading up to his proposal for the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), which is of immediate relevance for dealing with the Defense of Earth today. “Had we succeeded in the promising developments for SDI since the formation of the Fusion Energy Foundation (FEF),” he writes, “the world would not have entered the presently endless collapse of the physical economy of the trans-Atlantic sector of the world.”

To avert such a calamity today, LaRouche again addresses the question of the human mind, and its inherent potential for creative discovery. We must think like Cusa and Kepler, such that we are no longer the prisoners of sense-perception.
