The following series of quotations tells its own story.

It is to be read as selections to be featured within the opening statement of an
indictment, for capital crimes against humanity, to be presented to an appropriate
tribunal. The clearly implied difficulty, is selecting a tribunal composed of persons
untainted by complicity with persons and institutions which have been continuing
parties to the crime against which complaint is made.

"The world's fishermen and farmers can no longer assume the
principal responsibility for achieving an acceptable balance
between food and people. This responsibility may now lie with
family planners."
--Lester R. Brown
Nov. 1, 1996 [ 1 ]

"Since population growth is a major determinant of increases in
food demand, allocation of scarce PL 480 resources should take
account of what steps a country is taking in population control as
well as food production.... Mandatory programs may be needed
and we should be considering these possibilities now. Would food
be considered an instrument of national power? ... Is the U.S.
prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can't/won't
control their population growth?"
--U.S. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger
U.S. National Security Study
Memorandum (NSSM) 200
Dec. 10, 1974

"C. Political Causes: 16. Depriving people of food has been used
throughout history and is still used today as a political or military
weapon. In some cases, this is a veritable crime against humanity."
--From World Hunger
Pontifical Council "Cor Unum"
Oct. 24, 1996 [ 2 ]

"Socialism, especially international socialism, is only possible as a
stable system if the population is stationary or nearly so.... The
white population of the world will soon cease to increase. The
Asiatic races will be longer, and the negroes still longer, before
theirbirth rate falls sufficiently to make their numbers stable
without help of war and pestilence.... Until that happens, the
benefits aimed at by socialism can only be partially realized, and
the less prolific races will have to defend themselves against the
more prolific by methods which are disgusting even if they are
necessary."
--Bertrand Russell,
The Prospects of Industrial
Civilization (1923) [ 3 ]

"Yet millions of people are still marked by the ravages of hunger
and malnutrition or the consequences of food insecurity. Is this
due to a lack of food? Not at all! It is generally acknowledged that
the resources of the planet, taken as a whole, are sufficient to feed
everyone living on it."
--From World Hunger
Pontifical Council "Cor Unum"
Oct. 24, 1996 [ 4 ]

"(A) Murder and Ill-Treatment of Civilian Populations of or in
Occupied Territory and on the High Seas
...The murders and ill-treatment were carried out by divers means,
including shooting, hanging, gassing, starvation, gross overcrowding,
systematic under-nutrition, systematic imposition of labor tasks beyond
the strength of those ordered to carry them out, inadequate provision of
surgical and medical services...."
--From prosecution documents
presented at the International
Tribunal at Nuremberg, Germany [ 5 ]

"Whatever proportions these [Nazi] crimes assumed, it became
evident to all who investigated them that they had started from
small beginnings. The beginnings at first were merely a subtle shift
in emphasis in basic attitude, basic in the euthanasia movement,
that there is such a thing as life not worthy to be lived. This
attitude in its early stages concerned itself merely with the
severely and chronically sick. Gradually the sphere of those to be
included in this category was enlarged to encompass the socially
unproductive, the ideologically unwanted, the racially unwanted,
and finally all non-Germans. But it is important to realize that the
infinitely small wedged-in lever from hich this entire trend of mind
received its impetus was the attitude toward the
nonrehabilitatable sick."
--Dr. Leo Alexander
Expert Advisor to the Nuremberg Tribunal
July 14, 1949 [ 6 ]

It is relevant to recall a most relevant opinion supplied by the celebrated legal
authority, the late Professor Friedrich (Freiherr) von der Heydte, on the subject of
the legal implications of the transparently fraudulent 1988 indictment and conviction,
in Alexandria, Virginia Federal Court, of the present writer and six of his associates
[ endnote ]. As Professor von der Heydte pointed out, in discussions of that case during
early 1989, the tendency in the United States courts, toward a variety of radical
conservativism derived from the dogmas of John Locke, leads in the direction of
worse forms of fascist legal practice than those which the Nazi courts derived, via
Carl Schmitt, from the neo-Kantian Romanticism of Germany's Friedrich Karl
Savigny. [ 7 ] That is precisely what we witness in the Nazi-like disregard for the lives
of those persons whom Thomas Malthus, Bertrand Russell, the International
Federation of Eugenics Societies, [ 8 ] Henry A. Kissinger, and Lester Brown, among
others, have deemed inconveniently excessive in numbers.

As in the recently celebrated case of the man who did not become former Senator
Robert Dole's 1996 Vice-Presidential running-mate, Pennsylvania's Governor Tom
Ridge, government officials, and culpable other professionals today, are perpetrating
the same violations, as studied by the late Dr. Leo Alexander, for which Nazi
officials and professionals were indicted, tried, and convicted at Nuremberg. Yet,
the cry goes out from defenders of such U.S. personalities today: "You can't
compare him to a Nazi!" Why not? Did he not commit the same crime for which
Nazi Germany's officials and professionals were tried and convicted at Nuremberg?
These are not to be argued as if they were cases of first impression under law. What
has gone wrong with our consciences, that so many of or citizens today, defend the
same acts for which their parents denounced German culprits as "monsters" fifty
years or less ago? How can a Bertrand Russell be considered a peace-loving liberal
today, not merely because of what he wrote in 1923, but because, for the rest of his
life, he never departed from the philosophy of that horrid utterance.

Professor von der Heydte's pointing the finger at John Locke is key. Whoever
adopts the philosophy of government and law which, as John Locke's teaching does,
argues that one man ought to be another man's slave, according to the sacredness of
right to property, is in no way morally superior to the morality of practice of the Nazi
regime. The infection with Locke's evil philosophy may seem to be but a minor
inflammation. As we see in the widespread, Nazi-like disregard for a principle of
individual right to life which grips the conservative faction of a Henry A. Kissinger or
Newt Gingrich et al. today, as it gripped the evil Bertrand Russell throughout his
adult life, the infection can be fatal, not only to the victims, but the nation which
tolerates such victimizations.

The issue of the right to food has become the choice of contest which will determine
whether this imperilled civilization of our planet survives the closing years of this
century. The Executive Intelligence Review's stand on this issue is clear; what will
your choice be?

Endnote: Whenever the name of "LaRouche" is mentioned, credulous
people suffer attacks of their own bad conscience, in tolerating what
has been exposed as a fraudulent, politically motivated prosecution.
Therefore, it is necessary, repeatedly, to remind folk of the mass of
published proof of the fraudulent character of the prosecution and trial
in that case. See, Railroad!: U.S.A. vs. Lyndon LaRouche, et al.
(Washington, D.C.: Commission to Investigate Human Rights
Violations, 1989). See, also, Report of the Clark Commission (1994),
and televised documentary of testimony by Odin Anderson, Esq.,
former U.S Attorney General Ramsey Clark, and Lyndon H.
LaRouche, Jr., Aug. 31-Sept. 1, 1995, before a Commission of
Inquiry co-chaired by former U.S. Representative James Mann
(D-S.C.) and J.L. Chestnut, Esq., of Selma, Alabama. The
"LaRouche" case was initiated, under provisions of U.S. Executive
Order 12333, on the initiative of former U.S. Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger, in January 1983; the conduct of the foreign
national-security operations under which the legal prosecution was
conducted, fell under the control of Vice-President George Bush,
under the provisions of the January 1981 National Security Decision
Directive 3, appointing Bush head of the Special Situation Group
responsible for supervising implementation of the relevant provisions of
E.O. 12333. Failing all legal avenues for eliminating target LaRouche,
Bush's agents, with aid from Bush's accomplice William Weld of the
Justice Department, conducted a fraudulent, illegal bankruptcy of three
Virginia firms related to the political movement with which LaRouche
was associated, on April 21, 1986, terminating all payments by these
firms. Later, following a mistrial in an attempted Boston prosecution
which Federal Judge Keeton identified as corrupted with the
government's systematic and institutional misconduct, on Oct. 14,
1988, an Alexandria, Virginia Federal indictment was brought against
LaRouche et al., over non-payment of political loans of the firms which
Weld et al. had unlawfully, and fraudulently destroyed. In this case,
Federal Judge Albert V. Bryan, Jr. used a Rule 403 {in limine}
provision, allowing the exclusion of relevant evidence, to conceal such
things as the fraudulent actions by the U.S. Attorney Henry Hudson, in
creating the bankruptcy, and Judge Bryan's own earlier role in allowing
the non-repayments of those firms' relevant loans. [ return to text ]
