A REFERENCE TO TODAY'S POLICY COMMITTEE PROCEEDINGS:
A Report on an Unusual Production
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
January 14, 2014
Here, in the content of the report on a Video production just broadcast in the traditional Monday video broadcast of our weekly Committee meetings, today's broadcast has contained an exceptional forecast, which has been a crucial emphasis on the deeper implications of the presently extreme probability of a thermonuclear, global war, one likely to be launched within the relatively immediate future, unless appropriate international action is taken very soon, to avert that threatened outbreak. In this case, prevention, rather than combat strategy, were the only likely remedy.
Yesterday evening, I had presented the background which were needed to define a much-needed view of the steps which must be taken now. The recent death of Israel's veteran Ariel Sharon, after what is to be estimated as his having been a seven-year coma, presented the best source of insight into not only a particular kind of very deep meaning to the actual adaptation, in Israel, of the British-created, right-wing turn of Israel's political government's full history during his lifetime in Israel itself, but to the implications of the extremely tragic adaptation, inside Israel itself, to the British-forced, right-wing turn from what had been Israel's political government, since the entry of the right-wing, British-oriented influences of the right-wing government. This was the change in the characteristics of Israel's being turned toward a place under the domination of a right-wing, British-quality of government, to the point of the turn. Up to that point, then, my most closely continued contact, from my own active contact with the leadership-circles of Israeli government, then in the process of being overthrown.
My Relations with Israel Since
My own relations with the Socialist government in Israel, which had begun shortly after my return to civilian life, back in the United States, returned from military service in Asia, had produced a close attachment to some U.S. university students, Jewish in tradition, who had decided to move to Israel. The students had asked me to become a channel of contact in the course of their intended migration to Israel and had intended remaining resident there (as part of the support for a particular socialist inclination at that time). That had led to my own emerging relations to circles of the Israel government during the subsequent period.
The following text within this report, has been edited for a more appropriate, broader presentation of the same intention, here amplified for this occasion, and thereafter.
Those contacts of mine to Israel's government circles which had ensued since that time, had become strong ties, and remained so, until the (chiefly) British-directed, right-wing turn, later. However, my own affinities remained, as that with ebb and flow of my contacts, which dwindled under the continuing fraction which had been largely the actually fascist turn of U.S. political effects (e.g., British-dominated, Wall Street elements associated with Prescott Bush and related, Hitler-linked, scoundrels) within elements of the U.S. government itself. My relations to those types were not improved, nor did I encourage such sentiments, from my own little victory over Wall Street interests, a trend culminating, during that time) in what soon proved to have been my pyrrhic victory at Queens College in 1971.
From that point on, my "Pyrrhic victory" at the British-led conflict in the debate at New York City's' Queens College, in 1971, had brought the immediately aroused, and also trans-Atlantic, full wrath of the pro-fascist elements (euphemistically classed as innocently right-wing) within certain elements of the relevant U.S. voices and those of others' governments, most all of whom were, and have remained as, voices of those who have been sometimes wrathfully, and, often, been worse than somewhat clinically insane in their passions, respecting my activities, up through the present time of the trans-Atlantic regions, in particular, or, also, to the point of recent "last report." Wall Street is now particularly, even also somewhat fearfully enraged, against me and my notable associates, during this present interval, since about last September: when the predators of Wall Street and London, had suddenly awakened to "The Street's" present fear that I had already succeeded in becoming a major "thorn in the side" of the Wall Street, no longer a mere "thorn," but, a "thorn" which they had now recognized, rather suddenly, as that they had mistakenly discounted, and, therefore, tended to have overlooked ("tactically").
In this fashion, during the immediate period of my systemic ties to fraternal relations emerging among ties to an increasing ration of circles of the Israeli socialist faction's governments, I had early contacts, through the indicated types of my contacts to leading Israel political circles, essentially, avowedly Israeli socialist governments. These inclinations, in our mutual, if modest relation, then, had, nonetheless, become, early in the game, increasing confident, but cautious relations, which had been maintained within reliance upon my intentions, at the same as keeping an eminently discreetly defined, formally friendly behavior and distance. Israel, during that time, wished friends, but remained cautious in trusting any outsiders. I was neither surprised by, nor did I ever resent the barrier of coolness put up as a kind of caution respecting those who remained implicitly regarded as "outsiders." Hitler, and also British "fellow travellers," were rightly considered relatively "monsters."
I was never, actually, a would-be crony, but a person whose own mission, then, as now, has been the objective and moral commitment to the rightfully earned place of Israel to the security and progress of its gain of a rightful place and mission in the array of sovereign nations. Such a policy has serious complications, but that is a policy which must be maintained and supported, nonetheless.
I have never become a "Johnny One-Note" in either music, politics, or strategy, and almost certainly never will never be, now, after more than ninety-one years of life, and have been never in much danger of drifting from that course, especially now. We shall now come to the relevance of that point for insight into the life, and also the matter of the recent clinically concluding death of Ariel Sharon, after his long, and bitterly complicated political life. However, he remains "a man," and, to that point, that is the reason I have chosen his memory as a most useful choice of a key for exposing the cause at the root of his, and of many other victims of the same type of self-inflicted error of their ways as his own.
He had drifted away from his true knowledge of the soul which had been rightfully his own, as Dante Alighieri might have treated such tragedies as of his own concern. The subject of my view of Ariel Sharon today, is a specific lesson of a cause of a soul which has died, but whose soul could now never speak, and as the souls of the truly greatest scientists and poets have spoken still, even lustily and vividly, even after the mind and body have been long deceased.
It is good to remember that immortality of a Jesus Christ who had exemplified his known mortal existence, as actively mortal in form, but, when once deceased, remained still an efficiently living soul, still today. For the treatment of the subject of my report here today: For the subject which is immediately at hand in the subject of my report here, we should pinpoint, specifically, the case of the Saul who adopted a spiritually-inspired identity of Paul, and, who had remained the same person, as a Hebrew virtual prophet, but, who had become re-named as Paul, and who had, thus, assisted the bereaved, the already Christian Hebrews in the mortal struggle of the pre-existing Christians, but had then realized the means of discovering for himself, the full meaning of attaining a comprehension of the actually, efficiently permanent, immortality of the human soul.
Those candidates for true heroism among all living men and women, who were conscious of the possibilities of living in effect after they have been deceased, as in the fashion which the Apostle Paul had written on the subject of the still living soul which remains an active force in the history of our universe. It was a soul which remains in service to become thus implicit, as if, for us, as an ostensibly mysterious power in our universe; this view meant such as as that of a true, human creator, who once now deceased, will be an efficiently active force in human society, even for the mortal identity after his apparently mortal state of death. In those respects, there are not essential differences, other than that one, in principle, between Judaism and a real Christianity which accepts the same intention for which the Apostle Paul had spoken alive, through the medium of such as the most appropriate I. Corinthians 13.
Let us now review those, and closely related facts, that for a necessary purpose, here and now.
That particular point of such a form and quality of special coincidence of Judaism to an original Christianity, bespeaks the existence, implicitly, of an actually existing, intervening, immortal and universal intention, that divinely intended for all mankind. Life, if and when considered in those terms of reference, is to be considered as the expression of a universal power in the universe, a power to be realized, more efficiently, by the appropriate means of the choice of our commitment to the mission properly suited to all human beings, the power to live efficiently within the society of those still living, provided that these are those who are still living by the means of this same devotion, as, implicitly expressed in Saint Paul's I. Corinthians 13. Here, Judaism and what is the doctrinal legacy of Christianity, share a common route of ultimate endeavor within eternity. The margin of distinction between them, is that Christianity represents the honor and right needed for all the immortal rights afforded for what is termed, all mankind, that often without properly full comprehension of the essential quality of a mission, in which, of course, the soul lives on, when the mortal body is now deceased.
My image for insight into the tragic death which, apparently, had ostensibly struck down the soul of Ariel Sharon, is a matter of principle, that we must cherish what should have become the truly assigned destination of his soul, but lament and despise its apparent outcome in his practice, at the end of his known consciousness, up to the point that all known redemption of the soul's opportunities had been quenched in a meaninglessly final death. Until death has come with actual finality, the final judgment must be withheld as matter of principle, as I had followed that principle in this case. That judgment, as a voluntary choice, must be withheld from what is called "final judgment," until death itself has claimed the very existence of the human individual in what is described as its mortal limitations.
Thence, only the true virtue of the person's intent, could secure the identity of the dead, insofar as we, the still living, would still incorporate it as a properly ensured immortality of intention.
What That Means for Those Who Are,
