What Aldous Huxley and George Orwell wrote about LaRouche...

HUXLEY - Name Calling

In Words and Behaviour," Aldous Huxley wrote about "name calling", and "hate speech" that "men use for suppressing and distorting the truth" (1937, 1975):

"We know that the harming or killing of men and women is wrong, and we are reluctant consciously to do what we know to be wrong. But when particular men and women [and we must add, sadly, children] are thought of merely as representatives of a class, which has previously been defined as evil and personified in the shape of a devil, then the reluctance to hurt (...) disappears..."

When called bad names they "cease to be conceived as what they really are--human persons--and become for the users of this fatally inappropriate language mere vermin or, worse, demons whom it is right and proper to destroy as thoroughly and as painfully as possible.

 Whereever persons are present, questions of morality arise. Rulers of nations and leaders of parties find morality embarrassing. That is why they take such pains to depersonalize their opponents. 

All propaganda directed against an opposing group has but one aim: to substitute diabolical abstractions for concrete persons. 

The propagandist's purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human. By robbing them of their personality, he puts them outside the pale of moral obligation. Mere symbols have no rights--particularly when that of which they are symbolical is, by definition, evil."

Hey! Huxley is actually talking about Lyndon LaRouche!

ORWELL - Newspeak and double-think

In the Excellent book "THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF OLIGARCHICAL COLLECTIVISM" Emmanuel Goldstein wrote this about Lyndon H. LaRouches use of language:

"This peculiar linking-together of opposites -- knowledge with ignorance, cynicism with fanaticism-is one of the chief distinguishing marks of Oceanic society. 

The official ideology abounds with contradictions even when there is no practical reason for them. 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. It preaches a contempt for the working class unexampled for centuries past, and it dresses its members in a uniform which was at one time peculiar to manual workers and was adopted for that reason.

 It systematically undermines the solidarity of the family, and it calls its leader by a name which is a direct appeal to the sentiment of family loyalty. 

Even the names of the four Ministries by which we are governed exhibit a sort of impudence in their deliberate reversal of the facts. The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. 

These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy; they are deliberate exercises in doublethink. For it is only by reconciling contradictions that power can be retained indefinitely. In no other way could the ancient cycle be broken. 

If human equality is to be for ever averted -- if the High, as we have called them, are to keep their places permanently -- then the prevailing mental condition must be controlled insanity.

(1984, Orwell)


  1. European,

    I've been reading factnet.

    You are right - and it's very important (in my opinion) that you continue to stand up against the faction who are focusing on anti-semetism of LaRouche.

    1. Nobody joins the organization(cult) because it's anti-semetic.

    2. In fact, right before I joined - a member showed me an article saying LaRouche was "anti-semetic." It was a charge - for those trying to recruit me- easy to dismiss and make fun of - and at that time - it helped "push me" into the cult.

    3. As already stated in various ways by various people in fact-net - if you try and
    talk somebody out of joining LaRouche - by just discussing "idealogy" - you have lost the battle before it's begun. But this is what King and Berlett continue to do. I am not discounting the anti-semetic remarks of LaRouche - he can declare himself God if he wants - I'm saying no matter what he says - what really matters is the pressure, intimidation, hopelessness, and fear (sometimes in cleverly subtle ways) that is put into the minds of the new recruits and members - that is what killed Jeremiah and Ken - and others as well. Of course, all of this comes down from LaRouche - not much different from Hitler - or any other ruthless dictator you care to think of. When I was in -it was a matter of pride - being "ruthless".

    4. You have a bunch of people - and their heads are filled with all this ideology - how to double a square - revise middle C - all the conspiracy of the world crap. Now that they are even interested in this - they are told they are budding humanists - and they are the world's only hope against - the oligarchy(and don't give me the "coded crap" -
    I'm speaking to the "coded-theorists" here - the point is - any member sees himself as someone who is out to save the world against evil - which turns out to be anybody who questions LaRouche. Since "outside" people stay away from LaRouche as far as possible - the people who get the brunt of most of this rage - is any member or recruit who steps out of line.

    5. Prediction -LaRouche and his zombie-parrots-out-to-save-the-world are going to be increasing - not decreasing in numbers. After LaRouche is gone (that could be another 10 years - the recruiting could accelerate even more. What do I base this on? - by reading factnet. I am shocked by the accounts of how pressure is continually being increased on new members. Sure - many will eventually come out. But I forsee - more individual suicides - I am not talking about Jerimiah here - I'm convinced he was very fearful - and he was trying to get away in a desparate attempt - we must get the facts - as to what exactly happened - saying LaRouche is "anti-semite" - is not going to help get the facts. It's an idealogical cop-out - merely making us feel more superior - than the LaRouchies - umh - I wonder where that type of mind-game got started.

    6. Please don't misunderstand or mis-construe some of the things I'm saying here. I have a lot of compassion for these people - I was one of them once. It scares me to think about their futures. They all got themselves into this trying to save the world thing - it's a tough mentality to break out of - but we have had whole populations - who have gotten into the same problem - Nazi Germany, the North Koreans - to name a few. I would make this the first challenge to anyone recently recruited - how are you currently living your life more like - a North Korean? - or an average American?

    You may paste this to factnet - but please help guard my identity.

  2. Thanks. I posted it and will put some more focus on it by posting it on my blog too.

    If you want, you can write to me at: americanlycurgus (at)


  3. I posted your text here:

    Look at the comments on the page!

  4. I'll take the life of the North Korean, though I've no clue what that is like... America is dead.

    Not every idiot wants to join the LaRouche movement like this former Zombie above me; some people just want viable solutions to the constant economic peril that the world is in; LaRouche is calling for people to adhere to the constitution and reorganize the banking system -- not to exalt him as a god or to make him an Autocrat. You people are sick.

  5. Speaking of Nazi's... how about the censoring of the comments? Nice job, sicko.
