What Is a Nation?: Nations as Dynamical  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

The global crisis inherited by the Obama Presidency, as well as the extraordinary success of LaRouche’s July 25, 2007 forecast of the current collapse, demonstrate the need for “a sweeping, fundamental change in the future meaning of the very name of economics, sweeping aside everything which had been considered professional expertise” up to the point of that forecast. Solid, long-ranging measures, LaRouche writes, must be crafted and put into place soon. This report is focussed on those conceptions that are most important, among such urgent “long haul” elements of policy.

The Case for Nancy Pelosi’s Immediate Forced Resignation  

by Jeffrey Steinberg and Nancy Spannaus

Felix Mendelssohn: Schiller’s Aesthetic Soul

by David Shavin

No better honor for Mendelssohn’s 200th birthday could be imagined, than to expunge the besmirching of his name by his enemies who spread the characterization, still heard today, that he was “gentlemanly,” without telling the truth about him: that he was perhaps the best example of that which Friedrich Schiller had fought for—a beautiful soul, aesthetically educated.
