More on seven days workweek!

This is two posts I wrote for the factnet as an answer to a person that uses the "we are in war" argument to justify the laborintensive methods practiced in the LaRouchemovement!

retour! You wrote:"As far as the other things, you should know the drill: we're at war and in war you fight. Right? Important people don't take vacations."

YOU ARE WRONG! If you study military science you would see that war exhaustion is an important subject, and how to avoid it. It is the ABC of elementary military tactics WHILE AT WAR to never overuse your troops, MORE THAT SHORT PERIODS OF TIME! And I am talking about short periods of perhaps some months.

If the troops are forced to fight for days and days without rest war exhaustion occur and the troops fight less efficient. 

This is why a GOOD general always keeps some brigades or batallions behind the front RESTING so that they can replace the troops that are under constant fire and let them rest!

I know how it was during my time in the organization and how the american policy of "deployments" and "organizing" seven days (or six and a half days) a week was justified by the talk that "we are in war". For heavens sake, we all knew in reality that laborintensive work seven days a week is lousy economics, (right!) so the only argument left is the warfare argument!

But as can be easily proven, that is a flawed and dangerous argument!

And one which proves the fascist nature of the LaRouchian laborintensive dogma. Look at Mussolini and you will soon see that he talked about the need to let the society be in a state of constant warmobilization and war. This, in order to control them!

retour I have to ask you. Since you are up to date, as you write!

Do the "boomers" in the offices still work seven or six and a half days a week with fundrasing? 

If so, ask yourself what military commander that would let their troops constantly fight like that since the seven days week policy was instituted eight years or nine years ago!? What did the WW2 generals say about this? general Grant? Lincoln? Frederic the Great? I know, do you? 

And even Patton and Sherman whom I believe were two of those that often used their troops to fight constantly for 24/7 (or 14/7 the laRouchian way) also knew the need to let their troops REST for some days!

That is why "vacation" is very important in military warfare! Without it your troops will fight less efficient. That is a fact!

  1. Perhaps all us dumb pro-LaRouche Americans should adopt the "Swedish Way." Nationalize and bailout all the banks, eat all the fraudulent paper and become slaves. By the way, have you ever considered becoming the next Swedish porno star?

    Your blog is enough to make even a dumb American become "anti-European."

  2. Europe and Sweden is not better in any sense. Wat I want is to bring about a debate about the LaRouchian world of double standards! I joined his organization because I hated double standards in politics, and I dropped out because I found out that LaRouche was not better, but worse, than most other politicians, with a worldview filled with double standards!


  3. European... let me assure you this man, Howie G, is not a representative of all Americans. When Americans like him say stupid things like that it embarrasses me.
