A good friend sent me the link to this well produced video that makes some excellent points. I am fully aware that the source of this video may call into question its veracity, but I have been doing a lot of research for the past year or so and have come to the conclusion that FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) has been spread about LaRouche as well as about nuclear power. It is quite possible that the very same sources of FUD have attacked both since both nuclear power and Lyndon LaRouche backed ideas pose grave threats to the existing power structure.
I recognize that fission has its faults and challenges, and I remain somewhat uncomfortable with any kind of hero worship or cultish behavior. However, I do like independent thinking and people who are willing to poke the establishment in the eye now and again.
