An Extraterrestrial Imperative
By a LaRouchePAC Basement Research Team

The worlds population is still reeling from last years natural disasters. Japan, a first-world nation, was brought to its knees by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami in March; the US faced a record number of weather-related disasters; East Africa was hit with the worst drought in over half a century, putting 13 million people at risk; and the list goes on.

Past and future threats to human lives, including extreme weather events, CMEs, earthquakes, asteroids, and more, show us that the ultimate defense in a developing and inherently creative universe is progress. What is presented in this LaRouchePAC policy paper is the ultimate war avoidance strategy.
