La Rouchians in Bogotá!

The problem is usury - let's return to production!
Mark this in the bizarro category.

In the United States, Lyndon LaRouche is a political freak who always runs for president and never gets anywhere. He appears to believe that the British royal family's out to get him, that we should colonize Mars and that global warming is a lie.

Study music and English at the
LaRouche academy!
LaRouche's solution for Colombia? The Glass-Steagall Act, which no Colombians have ever heard of.

LaRouche is a conspiracy thinker whose fanatical movement resembles more a cult than a political party. Weird as he is, at least he is from the U.S. But, what is LaRouche's movement doing in Colombia, where he has no connection and people have much more pressing things to think about than colonizing mars?

Yet LaRouche's followers are here, denouncing usury and announcing the collapse of the world's financial institutions, which supposedly is already upon us. I've previously met LaRouchians distributing propaganda on Bogotá streets, and when I tried to tell them what an irrelevent weirdo their leader is, they just waved me off with a smug smile and a 'You just don't understand.' Sure.

It all says something about something about people's gullibility and willingness to join groups.
