Editor: It’s a shame that Loudoun Nowfelt obliged to make such a dishonorable show of itself in printing the obituary it did against (I use the word advisedly) Lyndon LaRouche.
Normally, this is a pretty good local paper, with fairly reliable and fair coverage of local government and local events of concern or interest to folks in the county. It must therefore have struck more than a few discerning readers, that the obituary did little but dust off long-stale lies devised by LaRouche’s enemies, pasted together selected pieces of purportedly “objective fact” with a few buzz words, in yet another effort to convince readers that LaRouche was just a paranoid tangle of incoherence and his life, and passing, therefore insignificant.
What would lead the editor to do so? Was it some personal grudge? an attempt to show that local Loudoun Nowcan sit at the table with big guys like the Washington Postor New York Timesthat continue their decades-long effort to obfuscate LaRouche’s actual ideas and accomplishments? A signal, maybe, that Loudoun Now can be counted on by the likes of Robert Mueller—a major player in the notoriously corrupt federal prosecution of LaRouche in the 1980s—as new efforts get underway to stop LaRouche’s national and global renaissance programs from gaining further traction?
It’s not that one expects Loudoun Nowto report on international developments, neither its intention nor its competence. But the reality, that the largest multicontinental development effort in human history is now well underway, closely following the World Landbridge design created and widely promoted by Lyndon LaRouche and his wife, Helga, and associates, beginning (formally) in 1989, instantly reveals the nature of such malevolent distortions as LN’s. LaRouche’s voluminous writings on physical economy, science, statecraft, history, and culture, available on his movement’s websites, speak to its origins. Their greater significance, however, lies in their import for new generations who will ask, “How did this wonderful surge of overdue improvement come about?” The serious ones, as in the past and present, will discover LaRouche’s ideas, study and build upon them. And when the U.S. finally gets aboard this new paradigm, and Loudoun County comes to find itself part of a nation no longer plagued by collapsed industry and tottering infrastructure, epidemic homelessness, drug abuse, and suicide rates, but instead finally catching up with the future, it will not be Loudoun Now’s copied scarecrow of Lyndon LaRouche, but the real man, whose unceasing commitment citizens will celebrate as they ask, “Who kept this from us for so long?”
