Lyndon Hermyle LaRouche, Jr.
Who is he: Lyndon LaRouche worked as a management consultant from 1952 through 1972. Since 1972, LaRouche has withdrawn entirely from his consulting practice into full-time duties with publishing and related activities of the philosophical and scientific association, which LaRouche participated in founding.
During the interval 1976-1992, Lyndon LaRouche sought the office of President of the United States five times. In 1976, LaRouche ran in the general election as a candidate of the US Labor Party, an independent political association committed to the tradition of Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Henry C. Carey and Abraham Lincoln.
In 1992, LaRouche also sought election to the US Congress as an independent Democrat from Virginia's 10th District. During this same period (as before and after) LaRouche wrote and published numerous articles, pamphlets and books on the themes of an Anglo-American conspiracy to run the world. Of those books published, the most notable are an autobiography, The Power of Reason, written for the 1980 presidential campaign, There Are No Limits to Growth, 1983, and a second autobiography, written for the 1988 campaign, The Power of Reason 1988.
The most influential books are on economics, LaRouche believes. LaRouche's 1984 introductory textbook in the science of physical economy, So, You Wish To Learn All About Economics, circulates internationally in English, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Ukrainian and Armenian editions; the 1991 edition of The Science of Christian Economy circulates internationally in English, German, Spanish and Italian.
LaRouche's thought has matured over the years and LaRouche now calls for a return to a fixed exchange-rate credit system of a type consistent with a Glass-Steagall standard and believes this is the absolute requirement for evading a global breakdown-crisis during the immediate period ahead.
Lyndon LaRouche believes nation-states are in the best position to provide a framework to deliver basic goods and services to their populations and is firmly opposed to the New World Order that he believes the Anglo-American power elites are intent on creating.
LaRouche puts some sociopolitical and intellectual movements into the "positive" category and some into the negative. LaRouche believes the Reformation militated against the nation-state (and human well-being) while the Renaissance was an inspirational positive.
LaRouche believes in classical humanism and defines philosophy and philosophers based on their contributions to it. In order to arrive at these conclusions, Lyndon LaRouche has researched the underlying fundaments of what LaRouche (and many others) call the Anglo-American axis (or empire) and traced it back to Venetian bankers and even earlier. It is a strand of history he considers most dangerous.
For LaRouche, Western history is a recitation of Anglo conspiracies that have ever attempted to draw ever-tighter the noose of mercantilist central banking and its torrents of debt-laden fiat money. Lyndon LaRouche continues to fight it today.
Background: Lyndon Hermyle LaRouche, Jr. was born in Rochester, New Hampshire on September 8, 1922 and grew up in Lynn, Massachusetts. A socially unaccepted boy, he spent his time alone reading and refers to Descartes, Liebnitz and Kant as his "principal peers." He became aware of the exploitation of India by the British Empire during the late winter and spring of 1946 while serving in the Army as a clerk, a conscientious objector because of his Quaker background.
Having become a Trotskyite during his time with the Army, LaRouche returned to study briefly at Northeastern University but quit in 1948 and returned to Lynn and joined the Socialist Workers Party. He moved to New York City in 1953 where he worked as a management consultant. Since 1972 he has devoted himself full-time to political work and writing.
