A few weeks ago, Elon Musk dropped a bombshell, when he addressed what he saw as the biggest challenge to mankind's future: "And the foundation of the economy is labor. Capital equipment is essentially distilled labor...The fundamental constraint is labor. There are not enough people. I can’t emphasize this enough: there are NOT enough people. And I think one of the biggest risks to civilization is the low birth rate, and the rapidly declining birth rate. And yet so many people–including smart people–think that there are too many people in the world, and think that the population is growing out of control. It’s completely the opposite. Please look at the numbers. If people don’t have more children, civilization is going to crumble."

For decades, in the face of the anti-growth and anti-population propaganda of the elites, Lyndon LaRouche stressed that the world needs more people. It is not only an economic question, as Musk understands— it is the fundamental cultural question which differentiates human society from the evil of imperialism and globalism.

And, it is the key to victory.
