Occupy The World! To the Barricades Comrades?

Age of Reason

By William Bowles

Four years ago in a Ministry of Defence Review, the Whitehall Mandarins, more astutely than any so-called Lefty, determined the following:

“The Middle Class Proletariat — The middle classes could become a revolutionary class, taking the role envisaged for the proletariat by Marx. The globalization of labour markets and reducing levels of national welfare provision and employment could reduce peoples’ attachment to particular states. The growing gap between themselves and a small number of highly visible super-rich individuals might fuel disillusion with meritocracy, while the growing urban under-classes are likely to pose an increasing threat to social order and stability, as the burden of acquired debt and the failure of pension provision begins to bite. Faced by these twin challenges, the world’s middle-classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest.” — ‘UK Ministry of Defence report, The DCDC Global Strategic Trends Programme 2007-2036’ (Third Edition) p.96, March 2007

A Manifesto for the Impending Second American Revolution

Age of Reason

By Carmen Yarrusso

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
--John F. Kennedy

The vast social injustice rife throughout the world has finally reached a tipping point. The smell of revolution is ripe in the air. We the people of planet earth have finally had enough. The immense human suffering caused by collaborating, corrupt governments throughout the world is about to awaken all humanity to a common cause.

The End Of Free Trade Is The Only Way Out Of This Depression

Age of Reason

By Scott Cruickshank

Right from the very beginning there was only one possible outcome if free trade ever took hold in America. Industrial and economic collapse. Ross Perot knew it and tried to warn everybody. Very few listened. What is going on in America today, the factory closures, the unemployment, the debt, the experiment with globalism could not have come out any other way. Economic ruin was predestined right from day one when America signed on to NAFTA, GATT, the WTO and a raft of other free trade deals that have been signed in the last 20 to 25 years.

Three Steps to Recovery?

Age of Reason

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

A Note to the Reader:

Since the February 1763 "Peace of Paris," the dominant history of the world has been chiefly divided, for most of that time up to the present moment, between two leading, contending, English-speaking currents of the history of the planet. These two have been the British empire, on the one side, and, on the other, our own United States' republic.

Three Steps to Recovery? (Part 2)

Age of Reason

IV. NAWAPA Speaks!

There is no reasonable doubt that what was presented as the original design of the North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA), the original prospect for an alliance in water-management among the U.S.A., Canada, and Mexico, was no more than an indispensable, proverbial "wedge-end" of the intention for a vast expanse of the trans-Pacific region for the next great development of our planet as a whole.

Three Steps to Recovery? (Part 3)

Age of Reason

VIII. Your Human Mind

In the opening this report, I had outlined the distinction between that illusory view of human knowledge which is presented as sense-perception, and the contrasted view which I identified as "The Human Principle." I now return your attention to Chapter I of this report, in which I had emphasized the crucial role of the principle of metaphor as representing a typical principle of action: the ontological principle of the elementarity of action, rather than the devotion to a relatively finite objective.

The Russian 'Surprise'

Age of Reason

Putin Flanks the Empire

by the Editors

Noted American economist and political leader Lyndon LaRouche issued a statement of warm congratulations on Sept. 25 to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, upon the latter's nomination for the Presidency of Russia in the 2012 elections. He also congratulated Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, who nominated Putin for President at this week's United Russia party convention; Medvedev has announced his candidacy for the Russian Duma, as head of the United Russia slate.

Chavez, Evo and Obama

Age of Reason

By Fidel Castro Ruz

I am halting the tasks which have been totally occupying my time recently to dedicate some words to the singular opportunity presented to political science by the 66th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The annual event demands a singular effort on the part of those holding the highest political responsibilities in many countries. For them, it constitutes a difficult test; for the aficionados of this art, more than a few given that it vitally affects everyone, it is hard to resist the temptation to observe the interminable but instructive spectacle.

Do You Understand Why You Need To Prepare For Emergencies?

Age of Reason

This Has Been The Worst Year For Natural Disasters In U.S. History

There has been a natural disaster that has caused at least a billion dollars of damage inside the United States every single month so far this year. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, there have been 10 major disasters in the United States this year. On average, usually there are only about 3 major disasters a year. At this point, disasters are happening inside the United States so frequently that there seems to be no gap between them. We just seem to go from one major disaster to the next.

Last year, FEMA declared an all-time record of 81 disasters inside the United States. This year, we are on pace for well over 100.

Is Masturbating to Porn Cheating?

Age of Reason

by Em & Lo

Readers are always asking us this question, and the masturbator in question is pretty much always a man. Sometimes his female partner writes to us, asking if she's right to feel cheated on. Other times the man himself writes to us, asking why his partner can't understand how benign his porn masturbation habit really is.

We Can Learn From Hurricane Irene About How To Prepare For Disasters And Emergencies

Age of Reason

Whenever a major disaster or emergency strikes, millions of lives can be turned upside down in an instant. Fortunately Hurricane Irene was not as catastrophic as originally projected, but millions of people did lose power and at least 35 people lost their lives. Large numbers of homes were destroyed and the economic damage from Hurricane Irene is going to be in the billions of dollars.

The Eurozone Crackup

Age of Reason

By Mike Whitney

"We believe that the market has now entered a major downtrend. It is a mistake to dismiss the slide we’ve seen to date as mindless and devoid of fundamentals as many strategists maintain. These are not just scary headlines—-they are scary fundamentals.... There will undoubtedly be some more sharp rallies that will be interpreted as new bull markets. In our view, however, the bear market has only begun, and has a long way to go."

Age of Reason

We’ve got a real problem…this is a mathematical fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America.

A Story about an American Muslim the Media will NOT show over and over again

Age of Reason

When an "Islamist" terrorst farts, he gets front page coverage for weeks, and is repeated by all the mainstream media.

But when an American Muslim does something good, it is only shown once, or maye twice if it's a slow news day.

This is the story of a Muslim in N.Y. who was being robbed by someone with a bat. He pulled out a shotgun and the man begged him for mercy and said he was hungry. The Muslim gave him $40 and a loaf of bread and this impressed him so much, he wanted to become a Muslim.

Alicia Cerretani: Good afternoon, this is Alicia Cerretani, and joining me is Lyndon LaRouche.

Use Article I to Address Debt Ceiling

Age of Reason

by Thomas Geoghegan

The tea party has a secret: It wants to raise your taxes. The plan is to get the government to default. Thanks to the meltdown, we now have a fiscal or federal government debt equal to the annual U.S. gross domestic product. So let’s lower our bond rating, and push up the interest on that debt by 0.5, or 1, or 1.5 percent.

Dear Mr. Obama - Setting The Record Straight

Age of Reason

Dear Barack

I was rather amazed to see an article earlier today in which you state your belief that 80% of Americans want higher taxes in order to reduce the government's debt.

Either your staffers are misrepresenting the polling data to you, the polls are flawed, or you are driven to delusional hallucinations by the realities of the government's fiscal position. Possibly all three.

Must Read : The Essential Rules Of Liberty

Age of Reason

By Brandon Smith

Liberty will not survive without our willingness to maintain it. If you are not ready and willing to fight for your own independence, then you are not truly free.

There is nothing worse in this world than an enslaved man who naively believes himself free, except, perhaps, trying to explain to that same man his predicament. You can lay truth after truth before his feet. You can qualify your every position with cold hard irrefutable data.

Casey Anthony Child Murder Verdict Proves American Insanity

Age of Reason

By: Sorcha Faal

In a country whose Nobel Peace Prize winning President has launched three new wars since his taking office, and whose economy is on the brink of collapse as tens of millions have been forced from their jobs and homes, one would think that the America people would have by now have become inured to the deliberate manipulation of their psyches by their propaganda media organs, but as a bizarre child-murder case verdict yesterday clearly shows, this is not the circumstance, far from it.

Greece Resists IMF Rapists

Age of Reason

The great edifice of the Euro Empire appears to be crumbling before the mass strike now sweeping Greece. Hundreds of thousands of Greeks have taken to the streets to demonstrate they can no longer tolerate brutalization for the sake of a mountain of unpayable debt. The paralyzed Greek government is unable to implement the austerity plans required before yet another EU bailout can be implemented, to prop up the hopelessly bankrupt euro financial system.

Sing: 'Sleepers Awake!'

Age of Reason

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

The outbreak of mixed, but converging developments of today may not turn out to have been the overdue "Watergate"-type experience of an outgoing President Barack Obama; but, for the moment, the signs accumulated today make it a likely set of events. That President's violation of the "War Powers" Act is complemented by a converging set of resonant developments, which could—mind you, "could"—be the early undoing of that President's incumbency. Not a moment too soon! It now appears that the count-down began with the arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. It appears that the Erinyes are gathering above the heads of those intended to become the doomed.

1776 TO TODAY

Age of Reason

Mobilizing for Independence

by Nancy Spannaus

Put yourself, in your mind's eye, back in June of 1776, specifically, the period between June 7 and July 1. It is precisely at that time that one of the most crucial battles in the history of the American republic was fought—the battle over whether we would, as 13 united colonies, declare our independence to the world. Without that bold step—which put every outspoken leader, national or local, at risk of torture or death—the United States of America would never have been born.

Economy of the future to make the world unrecognizable

Moody believes that the economy of the future will not look like the economy of present times.

To put it in a nutshell, the world will have to learn to develop in a different way.

How Many Wives Should A Man Have?

Age of Reason

by David Macaray

That Nigerian gentleman with 107 wives (and 165 children) who was recently in the news reminded me of an observation made by a now-forgotten philosopher (could it have been Philip Wylie??) many years ago regarding the number of wives a man would have in an ideal world.

This philosopher suggested that, in an ideal world—without laws against polygamy—each man would have three wives.

What Americans Must Utter to Reclaim the Human

The Heart and Heat of Sex Education

Age of Reason

True story: A few weeks ago, my eldest child asked me if I knew everything there is to know about sex.

“No,” I replied. “I study it and write about sex. But nobody knows everything about sex. Everyone has questions about it, and you can always ask me and I’ll do my best to answer any questions you have about sex.” I made sure to say ‘sex’ a few extra times, to take the taboo out of it.

“Mom,” he asked, “can you not use the word ‘sex’ so much? Let’s call it ‘mating.’”

Glass-Steagall Win Would Oust Obama

After two years of making excuses for President Barack Obama, a number of traditional Democratic Party constituencies are turning against him, and his British imperial policies. Even the lying government statistics cannot cover up the increasingly visible collapse of the U.S. economy, now in a free-fall characterized by surging unemployment, a continuing crash of housing markets, and an increase in the rate of inflation, verging on hyperinflation.

Stop Blaming Israel for Every Grievance in the Middle East

Age of Reason

By Yasmin Alibhai-Brown

First came the Arab spring (followed, in some lands, by the harshest of winters) and now Hamas and Fatah have signed a deal for unity. Naturally, Israel is as panicked as are Arab despots by the shifts and quakes, the shaking ground beneath their boots. Israel depended on an everlasting, adamantine status quo. Nothing will ever be as it has been. Successive Israeli governments and their global cheerleaders and backers across the world are guilty of crimes against the humanity and rights of the Palestinian people, they who were made to pay for the European Holocaust. Hitler's unspeakable annihilation project can't be laid to rest and shouldn't. But excruciating historical experiences do not entitle a nation to grab land, to humiliate, to destroy the livelihoods of others and to expect no censure; in effect to be above international law.

The obscene bailouts of the rich financial gangsters

Age of Reason

Our Primary Problem

by Alton C. Thompson

Paul Craig Roberts, in a recent column, stated:

The obscene wars of aggression, the obscene profits of the offshoring corporations, and the obscene bailouts of the rich financial gangsters have left the American public with annual budget deficits of approximately $1.5 trillion. These deficits are being covered by printing money. Sooner or later, the printing presses will cause the US dollar to collapse and domestic inflation to explode. Social Security benefits will be wiped out by inflation rising more rapidly than the cost-of-living adjustments. If America survives, no one will be left but the mega-rich. Unless there is a violent revolution.

What Can The Japanese Tsunami Teach Us About Prepping For Disasters And Emergencies?

The Japanese tsunami is a crystal clear example of just how unpredictable disasters and emergencies can be. Nobody ever dreamed that a tsunami in Japan could wash cars, homes and people up to 6 miles inland. But that is exactly what happened.

So while it is great to make elaborate preparations for potential disasters and emergencies, it is also absolutely essential to have backup plans.

Christianity

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.

Thinker's Quote

Those who want to reform the world must first reform themselves. If they want to lead others to a better world, they must purify their inner worlds of hatred, rancor, and jealousy, and adorn their outer worlds with virtue. The words of those who cannot control and disci-pline themselves, and who have not refined their feelings, may seem attractive and insightful at first. How-ever, even if they somehow manage to inspire others, which they sometimes do, the sentiments they arouse will soon wither.
M. Fethullah Gülen

Liberals

"If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.” ~ John F. Kennedy, 1960

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt, radio speech, 26 October 1939
