Scrapping the usual academic frauds: ‘Go with the flow’: Why scholars lied about Ulysses’ Transatlantic crossing  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. explains the strategic importance behind the hegemonic British falsification of the history of maritime discovery. In hiding the fact that America was discovered in the Third Century, B.C., by students of Plato and Eratosthenes, the British strive to rob each and every individual of both their epistemological past—the breakthroughs of their forebears—and of their active participation in current history. Such falsification goes to the heart of the oligarchical method of one-world rule.

The return of the ‘Forgotten Man’  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“While the November 3rd results were still very far from the sweeping outright victory of President Roosevelt’s 1932 election-campaign, there is the smell of a potential political revolution just around the corner. Once again, Roosevelt’s ‘Forgotten Man’ is pounding at the doors of government.”
