Canadian Patriot 1776

This week, the New Lyre Podcast’s David Gosselin sat down with RTF’s Matthew Ehret in order to discuss the important matter of art, science and politics. It is taken as self-evident that humanity transmits its ideas, discoveries and passions across countless generations via the power of culture. But what is this thing called “culture” and how do imperial systems of self-organization require cultural dynamics which enhance those attributes of the human condition which render us ever more inclined to be manipulated by a master class VS the deeper and more natural forms of culture which enhance the sovereign characteristics of each sovereign citizens of a society for the benefit of both the individuals as well as the collective?

Characters like Aeschylus, Plato, and Ben Franklin are explored as representatives of the humanist cultural matrix whose creative works in science, art and statecraft were inextricably linked to their historic identities and Promethean defiance of systems of empire.

On the flip side of the cultural coin, the dynamics and psychology of “zeusian” culture are explored with a focus upon Aldous Huxley, Lord Bertrand Russell and the insidious Canadian social engineer Maurice Lamontagne.

How did the British Empire reconquer the USA during the 20th century and how are the methods of oligarchical control identical today relative to those deployed two thousand years ago? What role did the Khazarian Empire play in world history and how do the Rothschilds relate to the deeper oligarchical structures of control which predate the rise of that dynasty during the mid 18th century? These questions and more are addressed by the Canadian Patriot Review's Matthew Ehret in Timothy Kelly's Our Interesting Times Podcast.

During this lecture to the Moscow National Research Nuclear University, Matthew Ehret (founder of the Canadian Patriot Review and director of the Rising Tide Foundation) introduces the two opposing options for conceptualizing systems both in general terms and with concrete examples in human economics. Whether we choose to assume that boundaries to our growth potential are fixed or variable and whether the system as a whole is defined as a sum of parts or something more will affect more than is often realized- including whether society tolerates a slide into fascism and depopulation or whether it overcomes these existential challenges going into a future of win-win cooperation and creative reason.

The case studies we explore during this short presentation include 1) the Arctic as a platform of cooperation or war, 2) the middle east under bombs, drones and regime change or the New Silk Road and finally 3) Space exploration.

In Defense of Common Sense is the first of the three works compiled in the Prison Writings of Lyndon LaRouche (aka: The Science of Christian Economy) published in 1991. In this first Rising Tide Foundation reading session, we are introduced to several fundamental concepts of epistemology which has us zero in on the nature of creative mentation and the intellegibility of the structure of creative leaps which causally transforms systems of thoughts and their systemic political economic correllaries from lower to higher states of potential.
