Harley Schlanger in Berlin:
Prometheus and Immortality
Harley and Susan Schlanger
On November 1, 2009, the LaRouche movement in Berlin, Germany was treated to a class and discussion with Harley Schlanger, who is a historian, musician, regular contributor to the Schiller Institute website and best known as the Western States spokesman for the LaRouche PAC.
His presentation dealt with the sense of immortality an individual must develop, if he or she is to lead change in society. He centered the discussion on Aeschylus' treatment of Prometheus, the mythical figure who gave fire to man, and in so doing, incurred the wrath of the gods of Olympus.
And Harley develops in his presentation that indeed it is NOT Prometheus who is the tragic figure in this drama.
