by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“At this present moment, there are two mutually contradictory options respecting the continued survival of the human species”: the lurch toward global thermonuclear war, centered on the strategic policies of President Obama; or the alternative of LaRouche’s three-point program.

SDI Today!: Next, Beyond Mars  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

The successful landing of Curiosity on Mars, presents us with a matter of grave urgency: “that what has been mistreated as ‘empty space’ is filled with what must now be considered as deadly, and some more or less immediately mortal threats to the continued existence of our human species, threats which we must prepare ourselves to evade or overcome otherwise.”
