LaRouche was always right (really?)
LaRouche claims (basically) to be the best forecaster ever:
"I have warned the Establishment, for example in 1971, and earlier, that unless they abandoned their monetarist policies, we were headed not only into a depression, but into political fascism of some sort, which would mean a New Dark Age for this planet. I was right; that is exactly what is happening now.
I warned in 1979, that we were heading right into such a fascist holocaust. I warned in 1982, that that was the choice. I warned and warned and warned. Each time I have put my neck out to commit myself to a forecast warning, I have been proven correct, and within the general time frame which I specified, by my method of forecasting -- not by somebody else's crystal ball method. I was right in 1987. I was right in 1989, in giving the percentiles, ranging from 75% in October to 95% in April, for the second crash, following the 1987 one, to erupt between October 1989 and the middle of April 1990. The financial system is now crashing down.
I was right in 1985, in projecting the way in which the Soviet economy would go into a physical economic breakdown crisis. I was right in the fall of 1988, speaking in the Kempinski Bristol Hotel in Berlin, in forecasting the imminence of events leading toward an early unification of Germany in the context of the upcoming developments in Poland.
I have been consistently right in these matters, and that is what I am condemned to prison . . . " (2)
There is a strange feeling of "deja vu"... Here is a blast from the past:
"MUSSOLINI HA SEMPRE RAGIONE"
"MUSSOLINI HA SEMPRE RAGIONE" (Mussolini is always right) was one of the most famous slogans of fascist Italy, and was plastered on walls and buildings everywhere in the country. This slogan also appeared as part of the "Fascist Decalogue," or "Ten Commandments", issued by Mussolini.
"DER FÜHRER HAT IMMER RECHT"
"DER FÜHRER HAT IMMER RECHT." (The Leader (i.e. Hitler) is always right)
Wochenspruchen der Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterparte (NSDAP) [weekly slogans of the Nazi Party].
Joseph Goebbels, the Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany (1933 – 1945) fiercely worked under the motto: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it”.
Goebbels wasn’t the first politician in history to rely on the power of spoken words repetition in shaping attitudes and beliefs. Vladimir Lenin (communist revolutionary and Soviet Union Premier from 1922 till he died in 1924) used the technique of achieving belief in lies or half-truths as absolute truths also. His motto was: “A lie told often enough becomes truth“.
