The Dialogue of Eurasian Civilizations: Earth’s Next Fifty Years  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“My purpose here is chiefly to correct a menacing lack of general awareness of certain among the most urgent, and potentially deadly of the practical implications at issue in current, probably failed efforts to conduct a needed dialogue of cultures. That need is indicated by the great likelihood that the effort on behalf of that dialogue would turn out to be a catastrophic failure for mankind today, unless certain relevant, wrong, but presently popular assumptions about that dialogue were pinpointed, and some among those errors corrected by aid of some painstaking attention to detail, as I do here.”


Pinochet and Pinocchio: President George ‘Enron’ Bush Lies About ‘Enron II’  

by Paul Gallagher

An excerpt from the LaRouche PAC pamphlet “Bush’s Social Security Privatization: Foot in the Door for Fascism,” a call to action to prevent the looting of the U.S. Social Security Trust Fund, in what would be a futile attempt to bail out the collapsing financial system.

by Claudio Celani

Daniele Ganser is leading a research project on NATO’s secret armies at the Center for Security Studies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich. His book, NATO’s Secret Armies: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe, sheds new light on the “Strategy of Tension” which EIR has been exposing for many years.

Alberto Gonzales: Bush’s ‘Nazi Lawyer’  

by Edward Spannaus

Most charges against Gonzales, President Bush’s nominee for the post of Attorney General, miss the larger point: his obsequious willingness, even eagerness, to provide President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney with a legal rationalization for the untrammelled exercise of executive powers and the egregious abuse of those powers.
