Part 3: Zero Growth Kills Millions


Reversing the Devastation of Globalization


In a 1983 report Lyndon LaRouche warned: 

“In the coming period, fission sources, increasingly supplemented and later entirely superseded by thermonuclear, must be the leading feature of energy-generation policy. It would not be possible to supply supplies of added energy adequate to approach the requirements of the developing sector, most emphatically, without primary emphasis on unleashing and expanding potentials for fission generation of electricity and process heat today, and proceeding as rapidly as possible toward progress in successively more advanced versions of controlled thermonuclear processes. Without this policy, tens of millions or some multiple of that must die of increased mortality rates, for lack of energy supplies adequate to prevent this.” (Emphasis added.)

Part 2: Defining ‘National Economic Energy Flux Density’


Reversing the Devastation of Globalization


Regular followers of the LaRouchePAC website might have seen various references to assessments of the energy or electricity consumption per capita, for either the United States or other nations.  Over recent years, these studies have been carried out with the recognition that energy or electricity consumption per capita is a rough, but useful approximation of the energy flux density of a national economy considered as a self-bounded dynamic system.  In this series of articles, we are taking that approximation a few steps closer to reality by focusing on a deeper understanding of Lyndon LaRouche’s notion of energy flux density.

Part 1: What Is Energy Flux Density?


Reversing the Devastation of Globalization


The prospects of a re-election of Donald Trump, and a successful defeat of the attempted coup against his presidency, raises the potential for the United States to return to the mission orientation long advocated for by Lyndon LaRouche. 
The enemy is the British imperial system, including, emphatically, ideological enslavement, as has been increasingly enforced upon the world in the name of globalization (what some call globalism).¹  This present system is responsible for the deaths of countless millions throughout the underdeveloped world, and has left so-called developed countries like the United States in post-industrial ruins. 

What is the alternative?

Stop Studying Flea Markets, Create Space Markets

Famous Economics Experiment has been Asking the Wrong Question for 60 Years

A recent article caught my attention, "Famous economics experiment reproduced thousands of times" (by Whitney Clavin, California Institute of Technology).

The article, and the study it's based on, call attention to the highly problematic nature of popular discussions of economic theory in the United States today. Rather than endless discussion about supply and demand and free markets, it would be far more useful to study the vast global economic benefits of a Moon-Mars colonization program. To do this competently, the axiomatic problems of modern economic thought need to be highlighted, removed, and replaced.

The article in question opens,

Artemis and the True Science of Human Advancement — Special Seminar Discussion

President Trump's Project Artemis is not only a return to the Moon by 2024, but the establishment of a permanently manned base on the Moon by 2028—providing key steps towards Lyndon LaRouche's outline for a Moon-Mars colonization program.  This is the greatest endeavor of exploration in human history, and represents an evolutionary leap in mankind's existence in the Universe, similar to the first emergence of life onto land from the primordial oceans 430 million years ago.

This project is critical to the restoration of a pro-growth, industrial and manufacturing-based United States economy, and to a new global system based not on monetary globalization, but based on the industrial development of all nations and people.

Both the Artemis project and the unique perspective of space colonization defined by Lyndon LaRouche were discussed in depth during a special August 15, 2020 video seminar with Michael Steger, Kesha Rogers, Brian Lantz, and Ben Deniston.

A response to Michael Cernovich: The secret to making America great again, understanding true source of wealth


We should then recognize that the development of basic economic infrastructure had always been a needed creation of what is required as an ‘habitable’ development of a ‘synthetic,’ rather than a presumably ‘natural’ environment for the enhancement, or even the possibility of human life and practice at some time in the existence of our human species.… Man as a creator in the likeness of the great Creator, is expressed by humanity's creation of the ‘artificial environments’ we sometimes call ‘infrastructure,’ on which both the progress, and even the merely continued existence of civilized society depends.

- Lyndon LaRouche, “What Your Accountant Never Understood: The Secret Economy,” April 17, 2010.

Pro-Nuclear CO₂ Reduction is a Terrible Policy, With Deadly Results

[read as pdf] Even though opposition to nuclear power has been central to the zero-growth Malthusian movement since the late-1960s, the man-made climate change catastrophe propaganda campaign has increasingly driven some to place a growing emphasis on nuclear fission and fusion power as the basis of a CO₂ emissions reduction policy. 

Any attempt to mandate a CO₂ reduction policy—even while supporting nuclear power technologies critical to mankind’s future—is a horrific policy, and would condemn hundreds of millions of people to unnecessary suffering and premature death.

Notes on the Legacy of Lyndon LaRouche and the Future of Science

Over a long and productive life, Lyndon LaRouche, Jr. provided a myriad of inter-related original contributions to science, art, and philosophy, all flowing from his central discovery in, what he emphasized, was the over-arching field of the science of physical economy (LaRouche, paraphrasing Carl Gauss, called his science of physical economy the “king of the sciences”). Current and future specialists in these fields, as well the rarer renaissance polymath, will, undoubtedly, bring forth new and unexpected discoveries from the implications of these contributions, especially as mankind extends his economic reach beyond the Earth.

Earth as a Geological Telescope for Studying Galactic Physics

Some have called it cosmoclimatology.  Following pioneering work done by Henrik Svensmark, Nir Shaviv showed that changes in the galactic environment experienced by our Solar System have been the largest drivers of climate change on Earth over the past half billion years—mediated through the role of galactic cosmic radiation in cloud formation.

Vernadsky’s Thoughts on LaRouche’s Second Triad

In 2014 Lyndon LaRouche outlined a new conceptual insight into the development of modern science over the past millennium, identifying two multi-personality, multi-generational processes of scientific revolution: one, successful, and, a second, still wanting completion.[1]  Within LaRouche’s circles, these came to be referred to as the “two triads” of scientific revolution—each consisting of an investigation of (1) a minimum expression, (2) a maximum expression, and (3) a unifying resolution. 

This wasn’t presented as a history lesson.
