LaRouche Makes Emergency
International Address

Sept. 7, 2011 (EIRNS)—In the midst of the cascading international financial and economic breakdown crisis, Lyndon LaRouche took to the airwaves yesterday to make an emergency international address. [Transcript of address]. Given the vacuum of leadership, LaRouche said, it was necessary to step forward to present the immediate tasks that must be accomplished, if civilization is to survive.

LaRouche's central message was an elaboration of Step One of his Seven Emergency Steps: the need to remove President Barack Obama from office, and ram through the FDR-modelled Glass-Steagall legislation. LaRouche described precisely how Obama might be rendered harmless to interfere with the implementation of Glass-Steagall, and then described how Glass-Steagall would establish the condition for a real economic recovery for the United States, and ultimately the rest of the world as well.

The leading economist put special stress on the fact that the measures he proposed to be taken, are faithful to the principles of the U.S. Constitution, principles which have been abandoned over the years since Franklin Delano Roosevelt died. What must be done, he said, is to revive the population's trust in that Constitution, and the way its principles can be applied to create the credit for an actual expansion of the physical economy—and thus a future for mankind generally.
