A paper-based cult

Avi Klein at the Washington Monthly on strange doings in the Lyndon LaRouche circle. (Thanks to Eric for the link.)

  1. That article is amazing! This is my favorite part:

    "What was really killing LaRouche's enterprise (in addition, of course, to its peculiar philosophies and inability to keep a simple balance sheet) was that its leader was clinging to a dying medium. Enamored by print, he had failed to exploit the Internet. The Web could have solved many of his problems. Compared to printed material, online propaganda is virtually free to produce, and the Internet offers limitless space for disquisitions on esoteric subjects. (If anyone was made for blogging, it was surely Lyndon LaRouche.)"
