Democratic Party Platform 2008—LPAC Speaks!
This Global Tragedy!
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
The following document is presented as an urgently needed draft of what must be crafted to serve as the Platform for the coming U.S. General Election. It has been prompted by the fact that none among the putative leading pre-Presidential candidates have shown, so far, any recognition of the kind of reality which will face the voters in the coming November 2008 General Election, and no sense of the issues which will have become decisive at the point of the January 2009 inauguration. It were said fairly, that all of the putative candidates, thus far, are treating the future as a continuation of assumed conditions which are currently ceasing to exist, therefore showing little sense of what must be faced, or of what must be done, if our republic is to have a future during even the relatively short term ahead....

The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism, by Stanislav M. Menshikov
March 23, 2007
—EIR News Service announced the publication of
The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism,
by Professor Stanislav M. Menshikov.

Translated from the Russian by Rachel Douglas, the book is an authoritative study of the Russian economy during the first 15 years after the break-up of the Soviet Union. The Preface, by EIR founder and contributing editor Lyndon LaRouche, titled, "Russia's Next Step," poses the need for U.S. policy-makers to study and grasp the "disease" presented in this book, since it represents "an economic global pandemic which we must all join to defeat."


Democratic Party Platform 2008—
LPAC Speaks!: This Global Tragedy!

This foreword by Lyndon LaRouche to his proposed platform for the 2008 election campaign, warns that the world monetary system is 'currently in the process of disintegrating,' which none of the putative Presidential candidates even admits is happening, let alone offer a solution for the crisis. The solution: LaRouche calls for a return to the anti-monetarist, American System of political-economy, a return to those principles which informed President Franklin Roosevelt's recovery from the 1930s world depression. Without that solution, 'the worst outcome imaginable were about to happen to the world at large.'

Lyndon LaRouche warns that Vice President Dick Cheney is pushing for a 'Gulf of Tonkin II'—a pretext to attack Iran.
