LaRouche Presents Foreign Policy to Press in Paris  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche gave this press conference on Dec. 5, introducing journalists in Paris to his Presidential campaign. “The United States is in a crisis,” he said. “The habits of the Baby Boomers, the 50-year-old people, will no longer control the politics of the United States. The poor, the people in the lower 80% of family-income brackets, are going to be brought back into politics. And the leadership of people in the 18-25 age-group, is going to change, and be the spearhead of changing politics in the United States.

“In the meantime, the whole blasted system is coming down, so it’s going to make it a new time. The present world system of politics is ended, one way or the other, for better or for worse: You might have idiocy in the future, but it won’t be the same kind of idiocy we had in the year 2000.”
