Lyndon LaRouche gave this strategic briefing to members of the Washington diplomatic corps on Aug. 19. The turnout of U.S. citizens for town hall meetings on the health-care issue exceeds anything on record, in recent times, he said. “The population of the United States, in the main, has turned against the institutions of government in a phenomenon which is known historically as a mass strike.... You have a collision between a population which no longer trusts its President, no longer trusts its Congress, the Senate or the House of Representatives. Most members of the House of Representatives and Senate, believe they’re not going to be re-elected in the next election, which is next year.” What will happen? The direction required for global reform is clear, but will national leaders act? “All it takes is the will. The crisis will give the will, if the people are there, and the leaders are there to recognize the situation, and say, ‘No more postponing this issue. Humanity is now in danger.’”

The mantra that “the crisis is past, recovery is coming” is being chanted by a chorus of bankers, regulators, economists, politicians, and journalists. There is a noticeable tinge of zealotry in the song, a hint that the truth of the recovery is too obvious to be ignored, and that anyone who disagrees simply isn’t paying attention. Of course, they are lying—and they know it.

The Top of His Game.
by Helga Zepp-LaRouche
Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the candidate of the Civil Rights Solidarity Movement for Germany’s Chancellor, developed two principal themes in her Aug. 21 webcast: the existential financial-economic crisis that is now upon us, bringing with it the threat of fascism, and against which the U.S. population has risen up in a mass strike revolt; and the alternative of scientific and technological progress to build a future, as best illustrated by a new Moon-Mars program.

Part 2. The British Empire’s formation of the so-called Triple Entente—the combination of its Entente Cordiale with France (1904) and the Anglo-Russian Convention (1907)—led directly to World War I. Many of the people who created it were also involved in crushing Persia’s Constitutional Government in 1911, and driving out Morgan Shuster, the American who was working with the Persian constitutionalists against the imperialists of Britain, Russia, and France.
