Why the Senate’s Intelligence Has Failed: Reanimating an Actual Economy  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche addresses the U.S. Senate’s “implicitly treasonous expression of cultural decadence, in permitting the Synarchist banker Felix Rohatyn’s virtual destruction of the U.S.A.’s national automobile industry.” Discussing his work with members of the LaRouche Youth Movement, in crafting computerized animations of nonlinear economic processes, he writes: “The study of the implications of Kepler’s principal discoveries, and their reflections in the work of those who followed Kepler, is the best historically-grounded approach to prompting the student’s ability to locate science in discovery of the experimental form of expression of universal physical principles per se, thus freeing the student from the dumbing-down effects of today’s common ontological malpractice, of substituting a description of a mathematical formulation, which merely approximates a shadow of the relevant idea of principle, as if it were a proper substitute for knowledge of the principle itself.”
