LaRouche -





Is the LaRouche organisation left or right? Extreme left or extreme right?

In fact it is neither left nor right per se, it doesn’t fit with our terms of reference,
those of a democratic society.  

When they were Trotskyites, the Trotskyites didn’t accept them as Trotskyites, same with communists, same with extreme right wing, conservatives (US), democrats (US) or neo-Nazis etc... It is a political chameleon. They advance “masked”…

BECAUSE this is NOT a political organization, it is a cult that uses politics for its own ends, a political cult. It is totalitarian by nature (LaRouche would say “authoritarian”). The closest representation of its way of thinking is George Orwell’s “1984”. For the LaRouche cult, politics is not just “war-like”, it IS  a war, a perpetual war between Oceania and Eurasia, or between Eurasia and Oceania etc, a war against the enemies of Mankind and Civilisation, the enemies of LaRouche. These enemies are “exposed” by LaRouche by his obsessive and wild “conspiracy-theories”. The world is about to be plunged at any time into the abysses of a “new dark ages”, a World War 3, etc. Their clock always shows “one minute to midnight” for the last thirty-five years (see one of their websites and LaRouche (a self-professed economist) has “predicted” a world financial crash nearly every year… for the last thirty-five years! They believe that "saving the world" is the End of the organisation. It is not. It is only a mean to manipulate people (keep them busy) and create a cult of worshipping LaRouche, so that he would be “immortalised”. The worse thing that could happen to them is to be elected!




Jeremiah Duggan had been in family counselling, with his divorced parents, at the Tavistock Clinic in London, when he was 7.
For the paranoid  conspiracy-theorist Lyndon LaRouche this could simply mean a potential risk for LaRouche’s own life.

Indeed the “Tavistock Institute” is a codeword within the LaRouche organisation that cannot be understood from the outside world.

For LaRouche and his followers it is associated with “brainwashing” against members, with “anti-cult kidnapping” and assassination attempt against LaRouche. (aka the threat of the so-called “Manchurian candidate” )

The Manchurian Candidate is a 1959 thriller novel written by Richard Condon, later adapted into films in 1962 and 2004. The central concept of the book and the subsequent 1962 film is that the son of a prominent political family has been brainwashed into becoming an unwilling assassin for the Communist Party (source: wikipedia)

It dates back from the 1973-74 period and much of the conspiracy theory about it was published in three consecutive issues of the LaRouche magazine, The Campaigner.
In these days, the LaRouche organisation was a Trotskyite-leftist American organisation mainly opposed to alleged Rockefeller’s fascist conspiracies and which has just started to expand its political operations in Europe.
LaRouche’s interest in “psychoanalysis” was marked by the publication of his “Beyond psychoanalysis” lengthy study published in September 1973 to present himself as an expert in this field to his associates.


Then after the  theory came the practice…

A few months later he claimed to have successfully “deprogrammed” three separate members of his organisation who, according to LaRouche were brainwashed in order to kill him… all brainwashed by the so-called “Rockefeller-CIA”, i.e. the London-based Tavistock Institute (and with the help of no less than the KGB and/or MI5…)

LaRouche wrote: “The Rockefeller-dominated CIA establishment we have outlined here is a creation of the Tavistock Institute…” (cam 7404 p33)

After a lengthy description of the conspiracy to assassinate him, LaRouche wrote about brainwashing:

“What induces the victim to submit to brainwashing is his conviction that he is in the hands of an omnipresent, omiscient power which can effectively and promptly take possession of him anywhere. Thus, the world is made into a controlled environment by the victim's terror of the CIA.”

“It is technically possible for any trained operators to brainwash almost anyone of about thirty or under given appropriate circumstances. The most obvious of these circumstances is provided by a prison or mental institution, in which the selected victim is helplessly constrained within a controlled environment twenty-four hours a day, with hope of release psychologically distant in terms of the stresses which can be applied by those who control this environment.”

… omnipresent, omniscient power, under thirty years old, overstressed, in a controlled environment… this description fits so well with the daily life within the  LaRouche organization that he feels the need to reassure that his organisation is not involved in any brainwashing. He writes:

“There are more restrictions upon the possibility that a private agency or group of persons could accomplish a similar result outside of a special institutional setting.”

“The nature of the actual processes of the human mind is such that brainwashing could not be effectively accomplished by private individuals or small groups within society. Only a government agency can effectively brainwash a victim.”

But warns:

“The victim's sense of reality is turned inside-out. "He" or "she" (the pseudo-personality) becomes "I," and the pseudo-I now attributes the value attached to former beliefs and activities to present activities.
For example, in the near-dozen cases of NCLC, RYM, and NUWRO members conclusively known to have been brainwashed for either the CIA or LEAA, the victim characteristically accused the Labor Committees of "brainwashing" its members (a clinical impossibility), and reflected his or her own personality by attributing a profound personality reversal to me at approximately the point in time they themselves underwent brainwashing!”

So any member who expressed skepticism about brainwashing would become  immedi­ately suspect of… being brainwashed… creating so the “controlled environment” required to… brainwash people, according to LaRouche himself! It’s a mental “catch-22” situation… Indeed the victim's sense of reality is turned inside-out…
This was the beginning of the paranoia so typical of the LaRouche organization; the ultimate enemy is not the fascist Rockefellers or the CIA, the real enemy is within, within the organization, within ourselves… anybody could be brainwashed without even knowing it… and become a traitor, a defector or an assassin. And the masters in “brainwashing” are London’s Tavistock…
This atmosphere of paranoia and hysteria is comparable to that depicted in Arthur Miller‘s “The crucible” playwright whose central theme is the trial conducted by American puritans against those suspected of being possessed by the devil and doing witchcraft…
All of this anti-Tavistock campaign was supposed to prevent an Orwellian “1984” fascist nightmare:

“Tavistock CIA technology in "social control" and "brainwashing" permit the plotters to impose a 1984 version of fascism from above.”

As a matter of fact… the “turned inside-out” LaRouche organization claiming to fight the brainwashers by… brainwashing its own members has become, by the same token,  the very same 1984 Orwell’s fascist nightmare it was supposed to fight!
Orwell wrote in his “1984” novel:
“But by far the more important reason for the readjustment of the past is the need to safeguard the infallibility of the Party. It is not merely that speeches, statistics and records of every kind must be constantly brought up to date in order to show that the predictions of the Party were in all cases right. It is also that no change in doctrine or in political alignment can ever be admitted.”

And when in 1976 LaRouche wrote:
"Labor Committee and allied Communist forces within the capitalist sector generally are working overnight, constantly, to bring into being a new Marxist International throughout the capitalist sector."

the next year he wrote, in a very “Orwellian 1984 way”:
"I never had the conception of founding a "true Marxist" association. […] We have never been Marxists, except as regarding Marx as the highest preceding advancement of essential human knowledge. […]  More profoundly, as we change we do not change."

Indeed Orwell wrote in ”1984”:

“Thus, the Party rejects and vilifies every principle for which the Socialist movement originally stood, and it chooses to do this in the name of Socialism.”

At that point the LaRouche organization has become the Orwellian 1984 “fascist nightmare” the members were supposed to expose and combat.

Doublespeak, perpetual state of war, rewriting of the past and of course “Big Brother” aka LaRouche is watching you… Indeed as LaRouche said “the victim's sense of reality is turned inside-out”… which explains why “Marxist” activists who dedicated their lives to create a new communist international will be turned into far-right pro-capitalists (aka “higher Marxism”)! And soon its Jewish members will be turned into anti-Semites in the name of a “higher” Judaism …just like in “1984”’s doublespeak:  peace meant war, freedom meant slavery etc Reality is turned inside-out…

This is also the beginning of  redefining the “enemy”… It is not about the Rockefeller’s fascists anymore but the British being at the center of all possible and wild conspiracies… from drug trafficking to… putting Hitler into power, to Zionism , communism, environmentalism, rock-drug-sex counterculture, international terrorism… name it! And of course, the Tavistock Institute has a special role into this global conspiracy: they have the expertise  to brainwash single individuals or entire populations via the counter culture, via cults, and… via the medias! So a LaRouchian is led to believe that it is not he but the rest of the world that is brainwashed… by the Tavistock Institute!

The infamous Campaigner “Judaism is not Zionism” was entirely written by Jewish members of the LaRouche organisation.

As Dennis King wrote in his “Lyndon LaRouche and the new American fascism”…. these brainwashing techniques “bore an uncanny resemblance to what LaRouche himself was doing to the NCLC membership (aka the LaRouche organization, note)”

Relevance of “Tavistock Institute conspiracy “ today

In August 1991, in their newspaper “The New federalist” they accused the Tavistock institute for being behind anti-cult and cult operations, involving the CIA and the Jewish lobby… obviously all in league to destroy LaRouche. (see chart next page)
In their Feb. 12, 1993 EIR magazine, they published a dossier blaming the London’s Tavistock institute for being behind the mass-rapes in Bosnia. (see cover right-hand side)
In the same magazine (30 sept 1994), there is a new “historical background” behind the “Tavistock conspiracy-theory” and the “Manchurian candidate”. (at )


In May  1997 (in their “The American Almanac” newspaper), they published a series of articles  “BRAINWASHING: How The British Use The Media for Mass Psychological Warfare”, blaming the Tavistock institute yet again. ( Etc. etc…


                 THE “JEWISH LOBBY”

Since the 1970s “Tavistock” analysis series published in his Campaigner,  LaRouche started redirecting his political obsession away from the American “Rockefellers” and against Great-Britain and the “Jewish lobby”. In 1977 he wrote:
            “It will shock some that we must now face the hypothetical               possibility that Nelson A. Rockefeller may, to one degree or               another, come over to our side”

By the end of 1978 he published the “Dope Inc aka Britain’s Opium War against the U.S.” book which attacks the Queen of England for pushing drugs along with her allies, the “Jewish lobby” in the United States.
LaRouche wrote:

“It is no exaggeration to sum up the situation thus:

“Rooting Out The "Sweep" Operation: The Humanist Mode Of World Leadership”; by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.; Internal Memo; Oct. 2, 1977.

              the only proper comparison for today's British drug traffic into the USA is the British monarchy's 19th               century Opium Wars against China. There is more than a parallel. The same HongShang and other               banking interests that developed their wealth in the China opium trade are involved in the financial               side of the traffic against the USA -- aided by those leading elements of the Zionist Lobby which have               controlled organized crime in the USA and the Caribbean since the early 1920s.
              This is a calculated form of political warfare against the USA by the British monarchy. […] The fight               against illegal drugs and against the evil forces of "decriminalization" is nothing less than a war               against Britain, to the purpose of

saving our youth and our nation from the destruction the British monarchy has projected for us.”

In 1980 he published “The New Dark Ages Conspiracy” book, aka Britain’s plot to destroy civilization, written by LaRouche’s ex-wife Carol White (and new wife of Chris, one of the “deprogrammed” members in the early 70s, see above)…
He started to present himself in the US as the heir of the American Revolution against the 18th Century British Empire and a champion of American nationalism… the Jewish lobby often considered as a “fifth column” aimed at destroying the American “republican” (aka “anti-imperialist”) values… Typically, Kissinger will represent the archetype of the “treacherous Jew,” the Jew as an alien (Kissinger is not American). This is the peak-period of  LaRouche’s anti-Semitism and revisionism…

“Dope Inc”, 1978


He wrote:
"The impassioned sophistry which the Zionist demagogue offers to all foolish enough to be impressed with such hoaxes is the "holocaust" thesis: [...] in memory of the "six million. […] This is worse than sophistry. It is a lie. True, about a million and a half Jews did die as a result of the Nazi policy of labor-intensive "appropriate technology" for the employment of "inferior races," a small fraction of the tens of millions of others, especially Slavs, who were murdered in the same way that Jewish refugee Felix Rohatyn and others of his ilk propose to revive today. "

“Zionism Is Not Judaism” ; in the Campaigner, Vol. 11, n°10; December 1978.

But LaRouche is still campaigning hard against “Jewish bankers” like Felix Rohatyn and the “Jewish lobby” … Read from their website: “Felix Rohatyn and the Nazis” (June 2006) at or “Felix Rohatyn  as Satan” (July 2006) at

Felix Rohatyn's family lived in France from 1934 to 1942. They fled the Nazi occupation because they were Jews, escaping the country with forged papers. He claims he is alive today because a guard chose to light his cigarette and wave his family on rather than scrutinize their paperwork. (source: Wikipedia)
