Lyndon LaRouche always stressed that history is shaped by ideas—by those individuals and cultures who choose to embrace the ideas necessary to guarantee the future of mankind.
On January 21, President Trump challenged the elite gathered at the 2020 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, with the precisely the ideas necessary to move mankind forward, and out of our current state of tumultuous global upheaval: forget the “perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse” (a clear reference to the Malthusian climate change scare fanatics), mankind must focus on the powers of technology and cultural inspiration to overcome any and all problems with human creativity and shared economic growth.
Trump's address goes to the core issues Lyndon LaRouche spent his life mastering and promoting—as LaRouche famously said, for mankind, "there are no limits to growth!" We've excerpted the last 8 minutes of President Trump's 30 minute speech (his full address is available in video here, and transcribed here). Make sure you watch, and share this page with others!
This is an excellent opportunity to highlight Mr. LaRouche's own work on human creativity, economics, and the necessity of growth. The following excerpt is from a 2013 presentation Mr. LaRouche made to an international conference held in Frankfurt, Germany. In Mr. LaRouche's remarks, entitled "The Strategic View from the US," he discusses the unique nature of human creative development—the qualitative separation of mankind from the animal species—and the evil represented by the radical green movement (LaRouche's full presentation is available here).
In 2014, Lyndon LaRouche presented these principles in his key policy statement, "Four New Laws to Save the USA, Now!"
