We’re looking at international operations. International factors are the most significant for us right now. Local reactions may be more limited.
Nations worldwide want to join, and will join with China in the long-term mission of mapping the moon, around China’s breakthrough mission to the far side of the Moon in 2018. The Moon is the necessary stepping-stone to all of space. As Krafft Ehricke said: “If God wanted man to become a spacefaring species, he would have given man a moon.” But how could anyone doubt that the United States must be fully involved in this process, by which mankind’s future, even generations ahead, is being created right now, by those alive today? Indeed this is the very purpose of life. Does Obama insist that we’re not going back to the Moon? “Been there; done that?” That shows what must be done with Obama, where Obama must go and why.
The history of mankind’s space program, from its start in Germany, through all its intricate developments of the 20th Century, and on to its future in the 21st Century and far beyond, is a global issue which must be treated globally, grounded especially in the insights of its leading author, Krafft Ehricke, who worked closely with Lyndon and Helga LaRouche, and fully shared their deep, total commitment.
The fuller understanding of this question in its full generality leads over into many other areas, which the poorly educated layman imagines he knows something about, but of which he knows nothing. Does he even know what a scientist is? Is a scientist someone who finds a better formula to represent so-called experimental results? No, not at all. And what is science?
We must have a broad understanding of mankind’s space program, its history and its future, in the kinds of broad terms in which Krafft Ehricke understood it. What are the issues which the back side of the Moon presents to us now, in terms of what the Solar system will signify for us later? We need to understand these in order to build up space policy into the future.
Continuing the study of what Krafft did during his life, first in Germany and then in the U.S., is a solid basis for future progress. The question he posed to Helga Zepp-LaRouche when he knew that he was soon to die, put all the connections together. That issue is still alive today.
More generally, we have to locate this aspect of history within the entire fabric of history. We’re not looking at just one aspect. We must take the entire compound fabric of history of the entire planet: THAT’S our responsibility. When people do that, they are forced to think that way, and they begin to produce that way.
Obama and what he represents must be removed,—by what means? We don’t know yet, but we have to dump him, or cause him to be dumped. If you don’t, you don’t know what may happen. He must be thrown out and clearly condemned, or else the possibility of saving civilization is in grave danger. He must be humiliated and eliminated from office. If we don’t, we’re in bad trouble.
We must move the process ahead; we can’t let the process control us. We have to drive the process forward and get the effect. This won’t come to you for free; you’ll have to win it.
