Lyndon Larouch provides a fresh perspective on American history. A lot of it intuitively rings true. Some of it you have to research, which is easy to do. When you do your research, consider using original sources on Project Gutenberg, i.e. books written before 5 corporations controlled the publication of books. you can also get books published in Germany (Northern Europe) or Oxford Press Classics. They seem to be less biased, and as such tend to support some of the conclusions arrived at by Lyndon Larouch.

There are 3 books in this volume. They all have their own political-historical focus. I like the title work, The Science of Christian Economy. I agree with him on a number of issues. Local mercantilism is important for saving and rebuilding a local city/county/state economy.

He has an extensive vocabulary, and his sentences tend to be long - complete thoughts. Still not too difficult to read, even though, by way of providing an example of what he is talking about, he diverts into another topic or subject. It is as if he recorded this material, and someone transcribed it verbatim without doing extensive editing. It flows well, and reads well, but can be deep i.e. complicated or abstract and conceptual at times.

Read it if you have the time and an interest in US politics and economics. This is the man who challenged George Bush head to head, and he ended up in prison for his insolence.

One of the greatest books that I have ever read about fundamental principles, and I've read many. Don't be put off by the title; this is not a theological or dogmatic screed. La Rouche starts with the ancient Greeks and builds the world using geometry, as the Greeks did. Nicolas of Cusa is the main Christian philosopher whose work is central to this book, specifically Cusa's concept of man as the minimum and God as the maximum, but with man endowed with creative reason and therefore, over historical time, more and more able to understand the mind of God. This view of man gives us, individually, great value; we are made in the image of God.

This is a hugely important book for understanding how anti-life and destructive the currently-dominant anti-industrial political philosophies are. Those philosophies, based largely on critical theory and affiliated doctrines, are dangerous for the survival of the human species. La Rouche makes the point, explains it clearly, and I find his argument compelling.
