Attention: Patriots! What Must Be Understood  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

In American history, Lyndon LaRouche explains, the Society of the Cincinnati best illustrates the importance of private individuals securing the survival of our republic, given that the dying out of the generation of relevant patriots from among the veterans of the 1939-1945 war has left the U.S.A. with governing strata which are far more poorly equipped, culturally and intellectually, to cope with the breakdown-crisis of the world’s present monetary-financial system, and to launch a new world monetary-credit system. LaRouche writes that history cannot be made only by carrying out existing official policies. The future of any nation depends upon the creation and adoption of fundamental scientific and other necessarily revolutionary discoveries.

The work of this patriotic grouping and their collaborators, is at the heart of the story of America as an anti-oligarchic project, and of the modern world made possible by the ideas of Gottfried Leibniz, Benjamin Franklin, and their intellectual heirs.
