Tony Papert

Tony is honored to have been committed to Lyndon LaRouche and his ideas ever since the mid-1960s. Much later, LaRouche appointed him an editor of Executive Intelligence Review (EIR) magazine, which Papert co-edited for some years in the second and third decades of this century while it still reflected LaRouche's thinking. During roughly the same period, he was generally the only person whom LaRouche permitted to edit his writings. Otherwise, Papert's work has featured attention to the Ancient Greek, and to some degree, to ancient history more broadly.

Simply, because absolutely nothing Joe Biden has done has worked. Simply, because despite all they have done to poison, persecute, defame, and frighten, Donald Trump remains the leader of the Republican Party and a mass movement in the United States, crossing previous partisan divides, and defying the awful fate the globalists thought they would have successfully implemented here by now.

Every Republican Senator except for Rand Paul, is apparently stupid enough to think that pushing for an unnecessary (and disastrous) war with Russia--is a darned clever way to win support away from the senile Biden and the Democratic Party. If they believe that, they are indeed “children,” as Tucker Carlson said recently.

During the 2007-09 depression collapse, Lyndon LaRouche understood that the power of the “globalist” world financial empire–which is today’s form of the British empire–was so great, that no single nation-state had the strength to destroy it. Even the United States, the world’s most powerful nation-state, could not by itself crush this world empire.

Russia is not about to seize Ukraine. It would imperil, rather than advance Russia’s security. After an intense and bloody war, lower-level fighting would continue for years. What could Russia possibly gain that could compensate for this?

This past Tuesday's U.S. election is the harbinger of the global elites' death knell. The American Spirit is gathering the strength needed to deliver that blow. And the globalists know that spirit can win—if it is infused with the power of the American System of Political Economy. Time is short. Decades of deindustrialization, more recent policies of COVID shutdowns and green insanity, coupled with endless money printing, has put the U.S. on an inflationary, and potentially, hyperinflationary pathway.

There is reason to fear that a spiralling world energy crisis may overwhelm the U.S., Western European, and major Asian economies even before the scheduled Oct 31-Nov 12 world climate confab in Glasgow, Scotland--or while it is in session. (In the dark, perhaps?)

LaRouchePAC is launching a crucial initiative to free our nation from the destructive policies of globalization and to launch an industrial and scientific renaissance. We are calling on you to circulate and organize around our new resolution "Re-Americanize the U.S. Economy," by reaching out to organizations and constituency leaders, and building the forces to take our economy back.

Electric blackouts and brownouts have become endemic in parts of the country, especially in California, as the Energy Department (DOE) issued its Sept. 8 report. For example, power had just been ninety-percent restored in New Orleans after a 10-day blackout, but 342,000 elsewhere in the state were still without electricity. Of 26 deaths attributed to Hurricane Ida in Louisiana, 11 were due to the blackout.

Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.
–King Lear

Nearly all of us who claim to be Christians or Jews have allowed our children, for nearly two generations, to be seduced into a cult which mocks the God of Abraham. Nearly all of us who claim to be Americans, have allowed our children to be saturated with this cult’s trampling of American principles into the dirt.

If it is not already, it will soon be obvious to everyone that the new “line” of the “Globalists,” better described as the modern British financial empire, is that there is currently a fateful world struggle underway between the “autocracies” -- also called “authoritarian” systems--and the “democracies.”

After leading his caucus last month to vote to keep Liz Cheney (R-WY) in the House leadership, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) voted last week to remove her–and quite rightly, and under President Trump’s orders. In the same way, in committee, he had supported Nancy Pelosi’s proposal for a phony bipartisan commission on the events of Jan. 6--but then turned around to oppose it when it came to the floor yesterday. Again, rightly, and under President Trump’s orders. But still...

Will Henry Kissinger and Silicon Valley’s Nerds Finally Destroy America? -- Are you ready for this? Billionaire former Google boss Eric Schmidt has led a successful effort to divert ever-increasing parts of the U.S. defense budget away from weapons systems, and into–guess what?–Silicon Valley! For the last four years, Schmidt has chaired a “high-level” government task-force, jointly with military Utopian Robert Work, which promises that if enough money is shifted away from weapons systems into “artificial intelligence (AI),” then some new, tricky way will surely be found to win future wars.

The way not to make the US once again a manufacturing superpower is the one chosen by all the well-meaning writers in American Compass and American Affairs Journal who propose to rely on special Federal programs to reintroduce advanced semiconductor manufacturing here, or, in the least-worst cases, to introduce “advanced manufacturing” more generally. We do indeed need government action to launch advanced semiconductor manufacture and advanced manufacturing--but it will never work as a boutique project. The reality is that we must mount a Herculean effort, as we did after Sputnik in 1957--and earlier to prepare for World War II--to transform the United States into a “full set” economy which can manufacture anything--because it manufactures everything.

As always, President Putin’s talk was that of a leader who familiarizes himself with all the conditions facing his citizens, and makes himself practically responsible for the welfare of the whole country and each of its citizens—as President Trump did, quite unlike any other twenty-first century American President.

As the elites push ever more insane curricula on our children, with Critical Race Theory and "gender change" near the top of the list, many Americans are becoming mobilized to address the crisis in education. But the fight against this evil must be driven by a greater understanding of what must replace it. As Tony Papert has stressed in previous classes, going back to the "good old days" of the 1950's or 1960's is not adequate.

Tony Papert delivers the third class in our series on classical education. What role does metaphor play in communicating an idea? What about contradiction? Ambiguity? Verse? Is there a method for learning the concepts and ideas upon which future human civilization depends?

We’re being told to “follow the science” on Covid, but the orders from Tony Fauci and other authorities change one hundred eighty degrees from one day to the next. What is science? Do our citizens know what it is? Our schools teach them that science is nothing but a sackful of mathematical formulas, plus the new “Green” religion of “Climate Change.” Is that true?

Of course we have to trash the race- and sex indoctrination sessions. Of course students must once more learn to write and calculate. But the needs of today's students go far beyond this. Rather than submitting youth to mere babysitting under the label of "liberal arts," from public school through four years of college, as we do today, we can and must prepare them for the intellectual rigors of citizenship, and simultaneously for the challenges of employment in the new technologies implied by President Trump's Artemis Mission to the Moon and Mars. This class, the first of three, featured in-depth discussion of the new, proposed Socratic teaching methods, and a History curriculum superior to any used in the past in the United States or elsewhere.
