The full transcript of Lyndon LaRouche’s Nov. 16 webcast, including dialogue with Senators and Congressmen, trade union leaders, and youth. “We have now won a victory,” LaRouche said. “We have in a sense recaptured our country.” The Democratic Party has reemerged as the party of Franklin D. Roosevelt; the Senate is taking real leadership, showing “there’s still the potential to rebuild and recapture this country to what it represents.”
What comes next? First, get Cheney out! But then, we have to face the larger issue, of rebuilding the globalized, looted world economy. “We can not live as the United States today, isolated in a world that’s disintegrating. Therefore, we have to think about what kind of a world system is required: Not because we impose it, like George Bush’s conception of democracy, but because other nations which may or may not agree with us on many things, know that it is wisdom on their part to cooperate with us to build this kind of a world system.”

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. critiques the review by the Washington Post’s Robert Kaiser, of The World War Going Our Way: The KGB and the Battle for the Third World, by Christopher Andrew and Vasili Mitrokhin. “Unfortunately, some, such as some of those at the Washington Post,” LaRouche writes, “are still living in a state of desperate denial of the fact that the fantasy-world of their particular choice of silly season does not exist, and never really did. They turn over, murmuring, ‘Let me sleep a little longer,’ to dream their favorite dream. Their warmed-over old dreams of the recent decade and a half, are now worse than boring, even to them. They thrash restively in their dream-world, as the dreams become sillier and sillier, even for them.”
