Thank you for your interest in the "World Historic Leader" position at LaRouche and Co's.
As you know, we interviewed a huge number of candidates, and have decided to select you
for the referred position.
Since you meet all the requirements to become a "young larouchie" (age between 18-35, limitless
energy, enthusiasm and naivety), we are pleased to invite you joining our teams of modern-times
"volunteers" selling non existing newspapers at a card table shrine. Time: five minutes to midnight.
We wish you every personal and professional success with your new no-future job.
Thank you, again, for your interest in our bad company.
|"Only we can save the world; only we can do the job, because nobody else even knows what the job is. Would you like to be the savior of humanity? ... Yes, I was chosen. You were chosen. Not with fanfare, not with the blaring trumpets of archangel Gabriel. It doesn't happen that way. It happens as you walk down the street thinking about the problems of the world and realize only you can do the job ... You are chosen. Like John Scialdone's lawyer said to the jury: 'You poor schmucks'!|
|... Look around you. Who will support us? Who will rally to us? The ones who will rally to us are the emotionally crippled, the grey-faced, the neurologically impaired who, in rallying to us will do the only worthy thing to give meaning to their lives. Thus they will be able to say, 'I wasn't important but I contributed to victory'."|

THE PROCESS OF "LAROUCHIFICATION":
The "LaRouche movement" is a political cult.
It is important to realize that you "don't join" cults, even if you feel this is your "free choice". The cults' trick is to make you believe this was your "free choice" to join when in fact you were being all that time...
Another "parlor trick" is proving they are not a cult because... they are "against cults"... (in fact, against all cults except LaRouche's... of course.)
TARGET (= "mark"):
People can either give "time" or "money", ideally both. Re "time", the "mark" is a 18-25 student who is naive and politically inexperienced. He/she must be an "idealist" and "generous", impressionable with lots of DOUBTS in his/her life (parents, relationships, school, future etc.) LaRouche will wipe out all of his/her doubts and that is appealing, reassuring.
The other "target" is a "mark" that has some money, who is an adult with some career and/or ideally some "connections"...

1 at some card booth table: HUMOUR ("polemic") often as "non sequiturs" is the angle to catch someone's interest. Of course the punch line needs to be connected to today's campaign. It is also important the joke to appear CRAZY; it will help the potential victim to make the transition to LaRouche's crazy world ("Planet"). That, in fact, it is NO JOKE...
2 Then starts the briefing about the topical campaign which is a WAR against the "enemies of Mankind", that "they" (ie "LaRouche) are the "only ones" to know about it and do something about it... The potential "contact", because of the "joke" feels safe and unaware he/she is being profiled and targeted. It's the time to "hit" with an expose of the DANGERS and SERIOUSNESS of the crisis (whatever it is). If impressed by the "analysis" and its solutions from Lyndon LaRouche, then the goal is to get some money contribution and even better his/her contact details to invite him/her to an "important" meeting. At that point his/her status is that of a "contact".
3 The "contact" is called back to make sure he/she comes to this important meeting (e.g. a "LaRouche Webcast").
4 At the meeting, along with other "contacts", he/she will be briefed about the dangers of the present world situation, by some higher-up responsible. The briefing will go into more details of the "crisis", its imminent dangers and in order to impress even more, give as many historic, psychological, philosophical etc references as possible. The point is to convince the "mark" that the society he/she lives in is HELL, a legacy from your bad parents' or teacher's "boomers" generation which is brainwashed by the Medias.
It is crucial to make clear that this unique "analysis" ("revelation") of today's dangers come from one man only: LYNDON LAROUCHE. At this point, the "contact" will probably be very WORRIED about all what he/she s heard. BUT, fortunately, this imminent crisis can be overcome if people listen to this genius called LYNDON LAROUCHE who has all the solutions to these "problems" you weren't even aware of. You will be explained (indirectly) that there is an antidote to this Hell: the LaRouche's organization (key to "Heaven's Door") At that point you will be invited to another meeting, a "cadre school" to be immersed in LaRouche's Manichean simplistic world-outlook, where LaRouche' secret method will be revealed to many other youth (this generally takes place in some remote area, sometimes a different country, and lasts several days in a closed environment), and maybe if you're lucky, to have the privilege to meet Him...
5 After the days-long "cadre school" of intense "discussions" (brainwashing) where you have immersed into this "group thinking" process, listened to the LYM's Choir (Classical music as a cure to Society's illnesses), you're at a dilemma: do you believe all what you've heard/seen? Is this Hell where you live? Are they "Heaven"? At that point the "friendly organizers" you met, will trash all these doubts by making you feel GUILTY on how immoral it is NOT to join, now that you know the Truth... That it is "One Minute to Midnight" and therefore there are no reasons to think in terms of "career", "family", "holidays" etc... This is "selfish" and "immoral"... especially since you met with LaRouche: NOW you KNOW... and this makes you feel "special", part of an "Inner Elite" (i.e. "apart from and above" all your peers, friends and family)...
This forced recruitment process by "immersion" could be compared to the "boiling frog" method where:
6 You will be immersed ever more in LaRouche's literature and world. At that point you will realize it is very hard to reject because, on one hand, you don't know much about all of this (e.g. Kepler, Riemann, Rohatyn etc). On the other hand, even if you don't know whether this is the Truth, you are faced with the apparent CONSISTENCY of LaRouche's world outlook.
If you have existentialist doubts in your life, then LaRouche could be the answer... You would become a "world historical leader" to save this world from catastrophe, potentially a "genius" in the image of God-LaRouche...
7 At that point, your status is now that of a potential full-time member.
It takes now about 3 months of "organizing" (self brainwashing) to complete the process.
When your friends and family don't recognize or understand you anymore... YOU 'VE BECOME A
(IF, unlike Jeremiah, you have survived the whole process...)
8. You have become a new "LYM" recruit:

YOU CAN ALSO GO BACK TO YOUR NO-FUTURE (1) (IN THIRTY YEARS' TIME)... as a LaRouche modern-times slave-labor selling newspapers at a card table shrine, a N.I.N.J.A. (o ncome, o ob, no ssets)...
