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.

This Week's Cover

  • 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' Taliban—inexplicably distinguished from the 'bad' Taliban—to '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.
