We Need a Candidate in the Mold of FDR  

Lyndon LaRouche has blunt words for the Presidential candidates and the Congress: “I have been totally right about the systemic nature of this collapse. All of the Presidential candidates have failed miserably, to date, to meet the standards required to solve this grave national and global crisis.” He points out that “we are not living under normal conditions,” and Congress is behaving like fools, worried “that their money will be cut off if they act in the genuine interest of the American people.”

Music & Statecraft: How Space Is Organized  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

What is it that most physicists, even otherwise capable ones, fail to understand about the idea of spacetime? Without a Riemannian conception of a non-Euclidean physical geometry, they fall short, as did the otherwise able Hermann Minkowski. To understand why, Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven prove very helpful! “The crucial central feature of the greatly needed reform in the definition of scientific knowledge,” LaRouche writes, “must be premised on the actual inseparability of competent physical scientific method from the great musical reform by Johann Sebastian Bach.”
