Reflections on a Work by Nicholas of Cusa: The Strategic Situation Now  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“Your world, and mine,” LaRouche writes, “has now entered a qualitatively new stage of history, which should be regarded as the end-stage of an entire period of history, an end-stage which is presently closing in upon us with a deadly grip; but, hopefully, it is also the forewarning of the opportunities for a new, better age very soon to begin.

“This is a time, not for reporting events, even merely important events; it is time to launch an entirely new quality in world history....

“I confront you, with the challenge of your obligation to share my own, still ever-deepening insight into the subject-matter of the ontological implications of the physical notion of what is to be recognized presently, here. I present that as my notion of the principle of the universality of the truly physical principle of metaphor.”
