LaRouche Holds Dialogue with Eastern Europeans

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Selected transcripts from a day-long seminar in Eltville, Germany, which involved Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. and friends of the Schiller Institute from Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Georgia. Keynoting the discussion, LaRouche declared, “It is false axiomatic assumptions, blind faith in taught or generally accepted ideas, which causes people to make the decisions which lead to disaster. Thus, a sharing of opinion will not lead to anything but confusion. What is needed, is a Socratic examination of the underlying, deeply believed errors, axiomatic errors, which have guided people to make mistakes, again and again and again.”
