by Dennis Speed

On the Subject of Strategic Method  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. addresses a conference of the Schiller Institute and International Caucus of Labor Committees in Germany. The policies of the dysfunctional three branches of the U.S. government today, he states, represent a recipe for a global catastrophe. The most ominous feature of the situation, is not merely the economic crisis itself, but the state of mind of those citizens who have caused it.

By what method can we forecast the course of events, and devise solutions? That is the crucial feature of the present report. “The exact timing of any critical phase-shift within the economic process,” LaRouche stresses, “is determined by human choices of actions, or by the simple absence of competent choices.... It is the human will, in choosing, or failing to choose, appropriate kinds of voluntary, critical changes in policy, which shapes the future of nations, and of mankind as a whole. These are the decisions which have relatively decisive impact on the course of events, especially under crisis-wracked conditions similar to those prevailing, world-wide, today.”
