We Are a Republic,
Not a Democracy
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
January 23, 2010
Foreword: Today Has a History
``A dishonest man said, `That is what I chose to believe at that time. You must, at least, show respect for my sincerity!'|''
The essential evil of the present British Royal regime's imperial system of government, can be traced in modern history, to deep roots in a time as early as that of the process of degeneracy of King Henry VIII (b.1491-d.1547), a decadence which was orchestrated by that King's then newly arrived (A.D. 1529) sex-counselor, the Venetian intelligence authority Francesco Zorzi (aka Giorgi) (b.1466-d.1540). In some respects, it is necessary to trace matters in such attention to details of the implicit cultural (Leibnizian) dynamics overlapping personal life-times, if one is to locate the background of necessary reference for understanding England's key role in the process of modern European history from a time about A.D.1529, through the February 1763 Peace of Paris, and, the subsequent, Eighteenth-century British imperialist tradition.
That modern, A.D. 1529-1763, process, leading into the formal birth of modern British imperialism, has been the historical backdrop which must be adopted as the reference needed to situate the origins of that system of Paolo Sarpi (b.1552-d.1623) which became known by such names as ``behaviorism.''...
This Week's Cover
- We Are a Republic, Not a Democracy
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
'The crisis of the European system, which, nominally, erupted around the current Greek debt situation, was never a Greek crisis as such; it was, rather, a crisis of the entire current European system since the time of Socrates and Plato, a modern crisis whose expression is currently centered, at this present moment, on the Iberian peninsula, not Greece, and a crisis of the international operations of the only nominally Spanish, actually British bank of Santander. As long as the current European system and U.S. Obama Administration policies persist, the fuse of a global breakdown-crisis must be considered as lit for the immediate period ahead.' For solutions, look to the republican founding principles of the United States, as these were saved from defeat by President Abraham Lincoln's victory over the British empire's backers of slavery.
- Euro Experiment Has Failed;
Save Economy, Not the Banks!
by Helga Zepp-LaRouche.
The acute possibility of state bankruptcies of members of the Eurozone, with potentially dramatic consequences for the entire banking system, added to the rise in U.S. unemployment to about 8.4 million during the first year of the Obama Administration, means that the fatal phase of the systemic crash has been reached.
- The Story from London:
Tony's Britches Falling Down
Above all else, Tony Blair is being held accountable, by a faction within the British oligarchy, for sinking the British Empire under a mountain of unpayable debt, and for promoting policies that threaten to bring Armageddon down on London's global power.
- Is Washington Handing Afghan Policy to London And Riyadh?
The United States is ready to toe the British-Saudi line: to bring back in the 'good' Talibaninexplicably distinguished from the 'bad' Talibanto 'share' power with the government of President Hamid Karzai.
- Why President Obama Must Be Impeached
President Obama's stated intention, to shut down the NASA program at its root, when added to his Hitler-like healthcare policy, and the destructive features of all other leading Obama policies, is one step too far to bear.
