"LaRouche Thinks It Is Possible To Save The World"
On May 14 representatives of the Anti-Globalist Resistance met with the well-known American economist and philosopher Lyndon LaRouche and his wife, the writer Helga Zepp LaRouche, who are making a short visit to Moscow.
Lyndon LaRouche briefed them on his vision of history, which, since the 12th Century in Europe has been largely under the influence, if not the control, of banks. First it was the Venetian bankers, who subsequently resettled in Holland and established banks there, bringing Britain into their sphere as well. Then this powerful network, lightly masked as the British and Dutch monarchies, ran Europe and extended their influence, later, into the USA, intervening in world events through its agents (among whom were many figures of the French Revolution, in LaRouche's view).
Today, the world is in a very unstable situation. The world financial system is on the brink of collapse. The USA is unable to function as hegemon. The leading personalities in the government are members of the Baby-Boomer generation, brought up in a state of egoism, and divorced from tradition, by means of deliberate schemes using television and mass culture. They are unable to think about the future. But there is hope, that youth will come to take their place, and for these youth the future will again mean something.
The current situation is Europe is becoming increasingly ominous. Countries like Britain, Germany, and Belgium, which have just had elections, are becoming less and less capable of making decisions independently. As for France, where the newly elected President Nicolas Sarkozy has openly rejected the independent French policy, founded by De Gaulle, it is already clear that by doing this, he has split the nation.
LaRouche sees the rejection of monetarism as a way to overcome the crisis, along with adoption of a system of government credits to the "real economy" (continuing the ideas of F.D. Roosevelt, who overcame the Great Depression with such an approach). This requires united efforts by the USA, Russia, China, and India, which would subsequently be joined by other countries.
In conclusion, Mr. LaRouche advised not to lose hope, saying, "The world can be saved--but can we do it?"
