Doctor Issues Call To Stop ‘Murderous Obamacare’  

by Marcia Merry Baker

Dr. Mark Shelley, a family physician from rural Pennsylvania, held a press conference Oct. 24, in which he identified Obamacare as the culmination of a decades-long process of degradation of the U.S. medical system, which has worsened as the economy declined. A “dictatorship of money” has arisen, he said, serving Wall Street, as the general welfare has been abandoned. Dr. Shelley offers poignant examples of how the “for profit” health-care system is forcing doctors to violate their Hippocratic Oath, and preventing them from carrying out their commitment to saving and improving the lives of their patients.

The Search for a Mislaid Truth  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

A deeper examination of the folly of sense-perception, which began with the author’s “Nicholas of Cusa, Kepler & Shakespeare,” in EIR, June 21, 2013. Contrary to the foolish believers in mere sense-perception, LaRouche writes, “The distinction of the human being from all other, presently known types of living creatures, lies, intrinsically, in the behavior representing a potential for effecting willfully self-directed categories of, specifically, ontologically upward changes in the expressed, intrinsically willful characteristics of the human species per se.”
