Tysk undersøgelse omfavner en forståelse af
BRIKS’ investeringer i infrastruktur i Hamiltons ånd

19. okt., 2016 – En undersøgelse, foretaget af det Tyske Udviklingsinstitut i 2015, »Finansiering af global udvikling: BRIKS’ Nye Udviklingsbank«, konkluderede, at, »med en korrekt forvaltning af sine udlån, og ved at gå i partnerskab med andre, multilaterale udviklingsfonde, vil alene NDB i løbet af ganske få år kunne udstede så meget som $34 mia. om året i lån til udvikling«.

Dette er mere end en tidobling af de $2,5 mia., som man har meddelt vil blive udlånt i 2017, ved det netop afsluttede BRIKS-topmøde i Goa, Indien. Dette ville placere NDB på højde med den Europæiske Investeringsbank, der ellers udgør den største, regionale udviklingsbank i verden, med $32 mia. i infrastrukturinvesteringer i 2012.     

Den tyske undersøgelse indeholdt flere formaninger til forsigtighed og retningslinjer for, at NDB skulle kunne opnå disse mål: »Omganget af BRIKS-bankens udlån må være tilstrækkeligt stort til at få en meningsfuld virkning, i betragtning af de fastslåede behovs betydelige niveau. BRIKS-bankens indvirkning må også måles ud fra dens evne til at gennemføre gearing gennem sin medfinansiering af projekter i den private og offentlige sektor.«

Undersøgelsen anerkendte en kerneidé i Hamiltons økonomiske lære: »Statslig kreditudstedelse er det bedste middel til opbygning af en infrastrukturplatform for produktiv vækst: Nationale og regionale udviklingsbanker, så vel som også Verdensbanken, vil være naturlige partnere. Skabelsen af NDB og AIIB (Asiatisk Infrastruktur-Investeringsbank) reflekterer også et skift hen imod en større vægt på statslige udviklingsbanker, regionalt så vel som nationalt.«

»Der er voksende enighed om, at statslige udviklingsbanker, der forvaltes hensigtsmæssigt, kan spille en positiv rolle i finansiering af realøkonomien, især i lyset af det private finansieringssystems begrænsninger mht. dette. Dette er især tilfældet inden for visse sektorer, såsom infrastruktur, hvor der kræves langfristet finansiering, før investeringer bliver profitable, hvilket ofte går ud over de tilbagebetalingsbetingelser, som private banker er villige til at udstede lån under, især i fattigere lande.«

Sydafrikansk analytiker forklarer betydningen af BRIKS’ rolle i Afrika

18. okt., 2016 – I et interview på sidelinjen af BRIKS-topmødet den 15.-16. oktober i Goa, Indien, forklarede direktøren for den sydafrikanske BRIKS-tænketank, med base i Johannesburg, professor Godfrey Netswera, til Kinas officielle avis Global Times, BRIKS’ voksende, globale betydning og dens rolle i Afrika. Han kritiserede Vestens »skeptiske« formodninger om BRIKS og sagde, »Vi er ikke overraskede. Vi forventer, at Vesten vil have en meget negativ holdning til denne udvikling. BRIKS er en gruppering, der repræsenterer historisk set marginaliserede samfund – den såkaldte Tredje Verden eller det Globale Syd. … Gruppen har været i stand til at præstere noget, som andre multilaterale organisationer, der har været etableret tidligere, ikke har, og det er etableringen af BRIKS’ Ny Udviklingsbank (NDB). Skabelse af institutioner inden for BRIKS-gruppen er en meget vigtig prioritet.«

Idet han forklarede Sydafrikas rolle som medlemsnation i BRIKS-gruppen, sagde Netswera, »Sydafrika spiller en meget strategisk rolle i BRIKS. Det repræsenterer det afrikanske område. Når BRIKS-nationerne taler, taler de ikke kun for sig selv. De taler for det område, som de tilhører. Sydafrika har god, elementær legitimitet i den Afrikanske Union og på kontinentet til at repræsentere området.« Han fortsatte med at sige, at »inkluderingen af Sydafrika i BRIKS på afgørende vis vil hæve Afrikas stemme i verden«. I forbindelse med, at Sydafrika har den mindste økonomi blandt de fem BRIKS-medlemsnationer, sagde Netswera, »økonomien er vigtig, men den er ikke den eneste overvejelse.«

»Da BRIKS-grupperingen blev dannet, var der utilfredshed med den måde, hvorpå de andre multilaterale forummer, såsom FN og Verdensbanken, fungerede, og helt specifikt med, hvordan Syden rent historisk er blevet behandlet«, rapporterede Global Times.          




De to paradigmer i stærk kontrast

Leder fra LaRouchePAC, 18. oktober 2016 – I denne uge finder der intense møder mellem europæiske og amerikanske, politiske og militære ledere sted i hele Europa, møder, hvor man diskuterer og planlægger krige – krige i Syrien, i Irak, i Yemen og i Ukraine. Det underliggende grundlag for alle disse forhandlinger er Obamas og Londons hektiske bestræbelser på at få støtte til krig mod Rusland og Kina. Europæiske regeringer og/eller ledende institutioner yder i stigende grad modstand mod dette vanvid, men Obama og hans forsvarsminister Ash Carter er i færd med at planlægge provokationer, som kunne kickstarte en irreversibel proces hen imod krig, og således true selve civilisationen med et atomart holocaust.

Og dog er det således, at det store flertal af verden ser hen til Kina, Rusland og Indien, der i sidste uge mødtes med deres BRIKS-partnere Brasilien og Sydafrika i Goa, Indien, hvor de kickstarter, ikke krig, men global udvikling, med højhastigheds-jernbaneprojekter, der forbinder nationer gennem en Verdenslandbro; hvor de underskriver aftaler om opbygning af kernekraft og anden infrastruktur og andet samarbejde omkring rumforskning; og hvor de løfter de mange millioner mennesker i Asien, Afrika og Sydamerika, der er ramt af fattigdom, op til en menneskelig levestandard sådan, som Kina har løftet 700 millioner sjæle op af fattigdom.

Hvilket paradigme vil afgøre menneskehedens fremtid? Den vil, et langt stykke hen ad vejen, blive afgjort af USA. Samtidig med, at krigspartiet mobiliserer sine kræfter, og i takt med, at det uafvendelige kollaps af Deutsche Banks derivatmættede aktiver spreder panik i det vestlige finanssystem, så undertrykkes Obamaadministrationens ødelæggelse og befolkningens had til Obama og hans klon Hillary Clinton kun delvist af det pornografiske klovneshow, som præsidentkandidaterne opfører, eller som de syge medier promoverer.

Valg til regering, som det forudsås af Amerikas grundlæggende fædre, handlede om mere end at vælge politiske repræsentanter – de udgjorde en periode, hvor intelligente mennesker adresserede og opdragede borgersamfundet omkring de fundamentale principper for naturlig lov og den mission, nationen spiller for verdens fremtid. Det er grunden til, at Lyndon LaRouches præsidentkampagne hen over tre årtier har haft en dyb og varig indvirkning på nationen, på trods af relativt få stemmer, og på trods af konstante angreb fra regeringens og mediernes side.

Aldrig i denne nations historie er kandidater blevet så udskældt af befolkningen, som i det aktuelle valg, selv om ingen af kandidaterne i mange tilfælde var kvalificeret til stillingen. Befolkningen har kun ét valg – at stemme for principper, og at mobilisere borgersamfundet til fordel for LaRouches ideer, hans Fire Love baseret på Alexander Hamiltons gennemgribende opdagelser, samt en genindførelse af klassisk musik og kultur.

Som Friedrich Schiller sagde, så må vi alle på én og samme gang være patrioter for vore nationer og verdensborgere. På denne måde kan borgere i alle nationer være med i den ærefrygtindgydende opgave, at omstøde Amerikas deroute ned i et britisk imperiehelvede, og bringe denne engang så storslåede nation ind på linje med paradigmet for menneskeligt fremskridt.

Hvad ville Hamilton have gjort? Find ud af det.

N.B. den 25. oktober: Det blev meddelt i går, at vi ikke kører en kampagne for at få amerikanerne til at skrive LaRouches navn ind, når de vælger præsident, men at vi vil intensivere vores kampagne for at få LaRouches fire økonomiske lov vedtaget.




BRIKS-topmøde kræver multipolær, international orden,
afslutning af krig i Syrien og industrialisering af udviklingslande

16. oktober, 2016 – I sit slutkommunike med navnet Goa-erklæringen, erklærede det 8. BRIKS-topmøde i Goa, Indien, at den fem medlemmer store gruppering var »en indflydelsesrig stemme på verdensscenen, der yder direkte fordele til vore folkeslag« gennem bl.a. nye finansinstitutioner såsom den Nye Udviklingsbank (NDB) og Valutareservefonden, (CRA) (Contingent Reserve Arrangement), »der yder et væsentligt bidrag til den globale økonomi og til styrkelsen af den internationale finansarkitektur«.

BRIKS er, understreger Goa-erklæringen, forpligtende engageret til en »omfattende, samlet og beslutsom fremgangsmåde« for at konfrontere de udfordringer, som trusler mod den globale sikkerhed og økonomisk tilbagegang stiller, med henblik på at virkeliggøre »overgangen til en multipolær, international orden«. Sluterklæringen udtrykker BRIKS’ forpligtelse over for »international lov og De forenede Nationers centrale rolle, som den universelle, multilaterale organisation, der er betroet et mandat for bevarelse af international fred og sikkerhed, fremme af global udvikling og promovering og beskyttelse af menneskerettigheder«.

Med hensyn til spørgsmålet om global sikkerhed understreger Goa-erklæringen, at udvikling og sikkerhed er »indbyrdes tæt forbundne, virker gensidigt forstærkende og er af afgørende betydning for at opnå en vedvarende fred«. Erklæringen afviser indgriben i andre landes interne anliggender og påbyder »samarbejde, der udelukker udførelse af ensidige, med magt gennemtvungne forholdsregler, der ikke finder deres grundlag i international lov … vi fordømmer ensidige militære interventioner og økonomiske sanktioner, der krænker international lov … «

I de specifikke tilfælde med Syrien og Nordafrika fastslår erklæringen, at dette er spørgsmål af den dybeste interesse og kræver løsninger »i overensstemmelse med international lov« og i overholdelse af principperne for »uafhængighed, territorial integritet og dette områdes landes suverænitet … Vi opfordrer alle de involverede parter til at arbejde for en omfattende og fredelig løsning på konflikten, der tager det syriske folks legitime forhåbninger i betragtning, gennem en inkluderende dialog og en syrisk ledet, politisk proces.«

BRIKS-nationerne fordømmer international terrorisme »i alle dens former«, og har aftalt at styrke samarbejdet for at bekæmpe den. Den Islamiske Stat, Daesh og dens forgreninger, udgør »en global og hidtil uset trussel mod international fred og sikkerhed … Vi opfordrer alle nationer til at vedtage omfattende fremgangsmåder til bekæmpelse af terrorisme …«

BRIKS-nationerne bemærkede, at den globale, økonomiske genrejsning »går fremad«, men at der stadig er udfordringer. Desuden »har geopolitiske konflikter … yderligere forværret den globale økonomis usikkerhed«. Erklæringen hævder, at, alt imens monetær politik fortsat vil støtte økonomisk aktivitet, »så kan monetær politik alene … ikke føre til ligevægtig og vedvarende vækst«. Innovation er af afgørende betydning: »Vi understreger betydningen af industrialisering og forholdsregler, der fremmer industriel udvikling som den strukturelle transformations bærende søjle.« I denne sammenhæng aftalte BRIKS indbyrdes konsultation og koordination med hensyn til gennemførelsen af G20-dagsordenen, som blev skitseret på G20-topmødet i juni i Hangzhou, Kina, »for at styrke makroøkonomisk samarbejde, … så vel som også robust og bæredygtig handel og investering for at drive global vækst frem … styrke udviklingslandenes rolle, og styrke international finansarkitektur«.

Goa-erklæringen specificerer, at kernekraft vil spille »en signifikant rolle for nogle af BRIKS-landene, mht. at imødekomme deres forpligtelser i forbindelse med Klimaforandringsaftalen i Paris, 2015« og peger på betydningen af »forudsigelighed mht. adgang til teknologi og finansiering til udvidelse af kernekraftkapacitet til civilt brug, der ville bidrage til den bæredygtige udvikling af BRIKS-landene«.

Nøglen til sejr er at overvinde jeres frygt

Leder fra LaRouchePAC, 17. oktober, 2016 – På netop samme tidspunkt, som BRIKS-landenes statsledere mødtes i Goa, Indien, for at planlægge samarbejdet om et nyt paradigme for statsligt samarbejde om store projekter, udsendte præsident Obama vicepræsident Joe Biden for at levere en direkte trussel mod Rusland. Søndag morgen lovede Biden på NBC TV, at USA ville gennemføre et hemmeligt cyberangreb mod Rusland, hvor Obama valgte tid og sted. Russiske regeringsfolk, herunder præsidentens talsmand Peskov, har fordømt disse trusler i de skarpeste vendinger og kalder det den mest direkte trussel om krig siden Cubakrisen i 1962.

Disse trusler kommer fra en præsident Obama, der allerede har utallige menneskers blod på hænderne, gennem sine tirsdags-»dræbermøder« og den uophørlige drone-krigsførelse, som udføres på mange kontinenter – alt sammen uden nogen forfatningsmæssigt lovlig godkendelse fra Kongressen. Nu er USA åbenlyst engageret i koalitionens krigsførelse mod Yemen, på vegne af saudierne, hvor de udfører artilleribeskydning imod Yemen fra amerikanske flådeskibe i Golfen, netop, som verden viger tilbage fra de åbenlyse saudiske krigsforbrydelser, hvor de går efter civile i bombe-razziaer i Yemens hovedstad Sanaá.
Og det er denne Obama-administration, der beskylder Rusland for krigsforbrydelser i kampen for at fravriste al-Qaeda dets kontrol over dele af den syriske by Aleppo – og som igen truer Moskva med sanktioner. Udenrigsminister John Kerry var i London i søndags, efter to dages møder i Lausanne, Schweiz, om krigen i Syrien, hvor han mødtes med den russiske udenrigsminister Sergej Lavrov og udenrigsministre fra Saudi-Arabien, Tyrkiet, Qatar, Forenede Arabiske Emirater, Iran, Irak og Jordan. Han og den britiske udenrigsminister Boris Johnson kom ud fra deres møde i London med løfter om at indføre nye sanktioner mod Rusland – medmindre de stopper deres angreb på al-Qaeda.

Obama viderefører den tyranniske arv, der er forbundet med to tidligere Bush-præsidenter, inklusive den George H.W. Bush, som fik Lyndon LaRouches fængsling banket igennem i en hast i det, som den tidligere amerikanske justitsminister (1967-69) Ramsey Clark har kaldt det største tilfælde nogensinde af politisk motiveret anklage på baggrund af falske beviser. Politikkerne under de to Bush-administrationer, og som er blevet endnu værre under Obama, har drevet USA ud i bankerot, udslettet den smule, der var tilbage af det amerikanske sundhedssystem, og kastet millioner af husstande på fattigdommens og den kroniske arbejdsløsheds skrotplads. 93,5 millioner amerikanere i den arbejdsdygtige alder er ikke engang talt med i arbejdsstyrken! Netop i denne måned har 1,8 millioner amerikanske husstande modtaget standardbreve med posten, der informerede dem om, at deres Obamacare-præmier stiger med 50-70 %, alt imens deres dækning er blevet beskåret. Selv tidligere præsident Bill Clinton var fornuftig nok til offentligt at kalde dette »det mest sindssyge, han nogensinde har set«.
Obama og hans britiske herrer og saudiske partnere er i virkeligheden dem, der er bankerot. Det er deres transatlantiske finanssystem, der er færdigt. Som Lyndon LaRouche bemærkede søndag under samtaler med kolleger, så er den britiske økonomi totalt nedbrudt. De er desperate for at lange ud efter og fremsætte trusler imod Rusland og Kina i håb om, at deres løgne vil få fremdrift. De er bankerot, men farlige.
Kendsgerningen er, at der findes klare løsninger, begyndende med afsættelsen af Obama og den omgående genindførelse af Glass-Steagall. Hele den globale derivatboble, der beløber sig til mere end en billiard dollars, må annulleres. Når disse indledende skridt er gennemført, kan en økonomisk genrejsning omgående lanceres ved at benytte Hamiltons metoder, som det for nylig er blevet præciseret i Lyndon LaRouches Fire Økonomiske Love.

Det første skridt i alt dette er, at førende borgere opgiver deres frygt og tager lederskabet i at bringe Dræberen Obama til fald og igangsætte den økonomiske genrejsning, begyndende med Glass-Steagall. De seneste sejre, hvor Obama er blevet tvunget til at frigive de 28 sider, der fordømmer det saudiske monarki som ophavsmændene til angrebene d. 11. september, samt Kongressens vedtagelse af JASTA-loven, illustrerer den magt, der kan udløses gennem en koncentration af patriotiske kræfter. Det faktum, at Obamas veto af JASTA blev underkendt med et overvældende, tværpolitisk flertal i begge Kongressen huse, er en kraftfuld påmindelse om, at det store flertal af amerikanerne hader Obama og alt, hvad han har gjort og står for. Saudierne forsøger at skjule det knusende nederlag, som de og Obama led i kampen om JASTA, ved at spendere $100 millioner på lobbyvirksomhed, i forsøg på at fjerne den skete skade. De er dømt til at mislykkes.
Det, der nu er afgørende, er, at det samme niveau af mobilisering af førende borgere, der var aktive i JASTA-sejren, opretholdes og rettes mod Obama og gennemførelsen af Glass-Steagall og andre foranstaltninger.
Et afgørende træk for JASTA-sejren var Schiller Instituttets kors fire opførelser af Mozarts Rekviem i New York City-området på 15-års dagen for angrebene den 11. september. Det indsprøjtede en vital dimension af kulturel optimisme gennem forestillingernes skønhed – på et tidspunkt, hvor den desperate britiske fjende forsøger at begrave enhver kilde til optimisme gennem det pornografiske show, der kaldes præsidentvalgkampen 2016.
Uanset udfaldet på valgdagen, vil nationen og verden som helhed stadig være konfronteret med disintegrationen af hele det britiskkørte, transatlantiske finanssystem og truslen om krig og kaos. Løsningerne for at forhindre dette kollaps er forhånden, og det er førsteprioritet på dagsordenen. Det er kilden til styrke for at overvinde vore medborgeres frygt og opnå en hårdt tilkæmpet sejr. Det kan gøres.

Putin opfordrer til det Store Eurasiske Partnerskab

13. oktober 2016 – Den russiske præsident Vladimir Putin opfordrer til et stort, Eurasisk Partnerskab i et interview med Sputnik.  »I denne sammenhæng har vi også foreslået, at arbejdet med at oprette den Eurasiske Økonomiske Union bør integreres med arbejdet på det Økonomiske Silkevejsbælte. Denne proces kunne sluttelig udgøre en basis for det Store Eurasiske Partnerskab, som ville involvere en bred vifte af stater fra den Eurasiske Økonomiske Union, SCO (Shanghai Samarbejdsorganisationen) og ASEAN (Sammenslutningen af Sydøstasiatiske Nationer)«, sagde Putin.

Han understregede, at et sådant partnerskab ville være åbent for adgang for alle berørte lande og ville blive bygget op omkring principperne om gennemskuelighed og gensidig respekt. »Samarbejdspotentialet i BRIKS kan også bruges til at gennemføre dette initiativ. Vi ser frem til støtte fra Indien, som er seriøst interesseret i dette forslag.«

Helga Zepp-LaRouche Message to Ibero-America Events
Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016

        HELGA ZEPP-LAROUCHE:  Good day.  Thank you so much for
inviting me to address your conference.  The world is in a very,
very dangerous situation.  Everybody who watches the strategic
development every day can see how the confrontation between the
United States and Russia is increasing.  Just a few days ago, the
official coordinator for the cooperation with Russia of the
German government said in the 2nd channel of German TV, that a
direct military confrontation between the United States and
Russia can no longer be excluded.  Now, it's not that this is
something new, but the fact that a representative … What he referred to was the complete breakdown of
negotiations between Russia and the United States over the Syria
crisis.  And there is the immediate danger of an escalation if
the policies of such people as General Petraeus or Sen. John
McCain would be implemented.
        And I think everybody knows that if it would come to war
between Russia and the United States, it would be a global war,
and it would lead to the annihilation of all of mankind in all
likelihood.
        Now, there is a second danger to civilization which could
also lead in the end to a nuclear war, and that is that we are
about to face a total collapse of the trans-Atlantic financial
system, much, much worse than 2008.  The IMF has named Deutsche
Bank as {the} bank with the most risk in the whole global
financial system, and depending on what will be the outcome of
both the IMF/World Bank annual meeting in Washington right now,
where the CEO of Deutsche Bank, John Cryan, went to, but also at
the same time to negotiate with the Department of Justice to
reduce the fine of $14 billion which the DOJ had fined Deutsche
Bank for criminal manipulations before the secondary mortgage
crisis in 2007-2008, from $14 billion to only $5 billion, because
$14 billion would mean de facto the insolvency of Deutsche Bank.
        Now, the German daily {Die Welt} said what Cryan is doing is
a "chicken game," that Deutsche Bank has $42 trillion worth in
outstanding derivatives, and that is enough if Deutsche Bank goes
bankrupt, to bring down the entire financial system, and
according to the old wisdom, if you have enough debt you can
impose the conditions how this debt will be renegotiated; but
{Die Welt} basically said, this is a chicken game which nobody
would survive.
        Now, Deutsche Bank is maybe the worst case, but by far not
the only one.  Deutsche Bank, as I said, has $42 trillion in
outstanding derivatives, that is about 12 times the entire GDP of
the German economy per year, and it's still about 3 to 4 times
the GDP of the entire European Union.  Therefore, it is obvious
that if Deutsche Bank collapses, neither the bail-in law which is
by now law in the entire European Union, nor bail-out would be
sufficient to solve the problem.  And if you look at the
engagement of these derivatives with the banks which are
counterparty to Deutsche Bank, it involves the entire
too-big-to-fail banking system of the trans-Atlantic system, and
if Deutsche Bank goes without state intervention, and that is
obviously not the solution either, it could be like the
super-nova, basically evaporating in a very brief time.
        A similar situation is true for the Italian banks, for the
British banks after the Brexit, and one should not overlook that
all of these banks have large fines to pay for crimes.  Deutsche
Bank had to pay because they manipulated and cheated the
customers in the real estate market in the United States.  Wells
Fargo just had a hearing in the U.S. Congress because they set up
2 million fraudulent, fictitious bank accounts to steal.  Then
you have HongShang banking corporation, which is openly
laundering the entire drug money of the Mexican drug mafia.  They
all were involved in the LIBOR manipulation, which caused the
three-digit billion losses for the customers.
        We are for sure heading towards an October crisis.  This is
not going to be a crisis after the U.S. election: This is now.
And all the means of the central banks, quantitative easing they
have been doing since 2008; negative interest rates, which kills
the savings of the population; and now they're talking about
"helicopter money" which is really the last straw. All of these
tools do not function any more.
        There is a remedy, and that is, you have to implement
immediately the Glass-Steagall banking separation law, exactly
what Franklin D. Roosevelt did in 1933.  Lyndon LaRouche has
enlarged that conception to say, we need Glass-Steagall, that is,
you have to write off the speculative part of the banks; but then
you have a lack of liquidity and therefore, you have to have a
credit system in the tradition of Alexander Hamilton, which
issues new, large credits for productive investments.  But you
also have to increase the productivity of the economy, you have
to have a science driver, and the best for that is international
space cooperation and vanguard technologies which go along with
that.
        We also need what Roosevelt did at the time, a Pecora
Commission. Pecora was the New York State attorney, who
investigated the CEOs of the Wall Street banks under oath at the
time, to then send many of them to jail. And as a leading banker
contact told us, if you don't do that, you cannot reinstate the
confidence in the banks, because people have lost completely
confidence in the system which is obviously more criminal than
not.
        There is good reason that this can be done.  Because in the
United States both parties, the Republicans and the Democrats,
have the Glass-Steagall Act in their platforms and despite the
fact that Hillary Clinton is not for Glass-Steagall, it is
important that in times of crisis such provisions are there.  And
there is a renewed optimism that you can mobilize the Congress,
even if normally people have little hope that the Congress will
do something useful, they just did by voting up the JASTA bill
overriding the veto of President Obama in respect of the ability
of the families of the victims of September 11th, to sue the
Saudi government.  This is a tremendous victory, because what was
victorious in this situation was a sense for justice: That it was
completely unjust that the victims of the September 11th
terrorist attack would not have the ability, and the families in
particular would not have the ability, to bring the criminals
responsible for that terrorist act to court.  And that has now
occurred, and there is a tremendous sense that you can move, once
people are united for a good plan, and once they act together.
        Now, there is an equal yearning for justice concerning the
banking system.  The banking system which has provided
unbelievable profits for a few, where bankers which provably are
criminal can get away with bonuses of hundreds of millions of
dollars, while the people they are looting, more and more of them
become completely impoverished.
        The other important aspect about this is that the
alternative financial system is already in place. Since 2013,
when President Xi Jinping announced the New Silk Road, there has
been an unbelievable development, in the tradition of the ancient
Silk Road of 2,000 years during the Han Dynasty, which at that
time was an immense exchange, not only of goods, but of culture,
of ideas, and most importantly of technologies, of the ability
how to produce silk, how to make porcelain, and other such
vanguard technologies of that time; the idea is now that the same
kind of exchange has been occurring since three years among the
nations of the New Silk Road, but with modern technologies.
        This is the largest infrastructure plan in all of human
history:  It's about twelve times larger than the Marshall Plan
was which was helping to reconstruct Europe after the Second
World War, in terms of actual buying power.  It right now
encompasses $1.4 trillion; it already involves 43% of the world
economy, and 4.4 {billion} people, 70 countries, are cooperating
around it. It is the only long-term development strategy under
the leadership of China right now.  As a matter of fact, it's the
only strategic plan to overcome this present geopolitical
confrontation I mentioned in the beginning, because it is based
on the idea of a "win-win cooperation" of all countries on this
planet.
        Very important, in respect to the financial crisis, these
countries have started to set up an alternative financial system.
They have started the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank
(AIIB), where immediately about 70 countries wanted to be
founding members, despite enormous pressure from the United
States not to do so.  Even close allies of the United States,
like Great Britain, Japan, South Korea, Germany, France, and
Canada, they all wanted to be founding members of this new bank,
which has a starting capital of $100 billion, which can be
expanded, and will be.  They also have created the New
Development Bank, that is the bank of the BRICS countries; the
New Silk Road Fund of $40 billion; the Maritime Silk Road Fund;
the Shanghai Cooperation Organization has created a new bank; and
they have created something called the Contingency Reserve
Arrangement which began as a pool of $100 billion, helping the
BRICS countries and other developing countries to fend off
manipulative speculative attacks like those of George Soros and
other speculators.
        It is very important that this idea of the New Silk Road is
expanding with an unbelievable speed, and many countries, not
only in Asia, but also in for example, Eastern and Central Europe
are picking up on it.  There is now a cooperation between China
and Greece, Serbia, Hungary, Czech Republic and even Poland, all
working on high-speed trains on infrastructure cooperation.  And
the idea is to extend this kind of a New Silk Road into the
Middle East and into Africa, to address the very, very dramatic
situation there, to reconstruct the Middle East after the war,
and to develop Africa, so that also the refugee crisis, which is
one of the largest humanitarian crises in the world ever, to
create conditions where Africa and Southwest Asia are being
industrialized so that people do not want to leave their home,
but rather, help to build up their nations.
        All of this is not just business.  The Silk Road is by no
means only infrastructure in the narrow sense, connecting A to B
through trains and ships, but it is also not just a replacement
of American imperialism by Chinese imperialism, which is what
some media are trying to insinuate.  The New Silk Road, put on
the agenda by China, is truly a completely different model of
cooperation among states:  It is based on dialogue, partnership
and cooperation; and China does not want to be a new hegemon, but
wants to have cooperation with all countries based on a "win-win"
mutual benefit, where each country has their own advantage.
        China has said many times, as a matter of fact, Xi Jinping
has used the formulation that what is needed is a "community of
shared destiny."  Now, this is what the Schiller Institute has
promoted for 25 years when we proposed the Eurasian Land-Bridge
when the Soviet Union collapsed, and expanded it in the 25 years
since, that the Silk Road must become the World Land-Bridge, we
always have said that we need a completely new paradigm based on
"win-win cooperation"; and that is exactly what is now pushed by
China.
        Now people always have suspicions, "what is the real aim of
China?"  But I have come to the absolute conclusion, that China
{means} exactly what they're saying, that the world must not be
run on the basis of a zero-sum game, but on the idea of a harmony
of all nations.
        Now, 2016 is the 2,567th birthday of Confucius and you have
right now a total revival of Confucian philosophy, in all of
China, in all schools, universities, cities, and there is right
now a two-and-a-half-thousand-year-old history of Confucian
tradition in China, with the very short except of the ten years
of the Cultural Revolution.  And that has shaped the Chinese mind
to a very large extent, the Confucian idea that the world should
be organized in a harmonious way, by allowing the harmonious
development of all nations, of all families, of all individuals;
and that a country cannot do well, if its neighbors are not doing
well.  The idea of Confucius that politics must be based on love,
now that is associated with the idea that politics has only one
aim, and that is the happiness of people, an idea which used to
belong the American Declaration of Independence, and an idea
which is also very, very known in the history of European
humanism.
        Confucius also taught that people have to have a lifelong
learning, and that they should perfect themselves without limit,
and that the highest ideal of man is the {chun tzu}, the wise man
who is basically perfecting himself in the highest degree.  And
out of this comes the idea that the sage king is morally much
more attractive than the hegemon.  This is the same idea as
Plato's "philosopher king," that only the wisest and most moral
people should rule.
        Now, while the hegemon rules by forcing the underlings into
submission, the wise king and the wise leadership is elevating
the people through inspiration. At the recent G20 meeting in
Hangzhou, which occurred for the first time under the leadership
of China, they have made a wonderful proposal to put the whole
world economy on the basis of innovation and to share whatever
scientific and technological breakthroughs are being made,
immediately, with all other nations, but especially the
developing nations, so that their development is not being held
up.
        Since then, they have announced scientific and technological
cooperation among the countries along the New Silk Road; they
opened up science and technology parks, huge exchange of
scientists and youth, in order to spread these ideas in the
quickest possible way.  All of these policies are a reflection of
the Confucian philosophy.
        If you study it more closely, you will realize there is a
tremendous affinity between Confucian thinking and European
humanism.  They are much closer and much more related than most
people are aware.  While in China, a Confucian Renaissance is
fully underway, it is the West which is in urgent need of such a
cultural renaissance.
        The Western world has plunged into a terrible moral
degeneracy and decadence:  If you look at the drug addiction, for
example, well the case of Mexico, for example, is famous: The
drug lords have taken over much of the country.  But in the
United States the drug addiction is the most important cause for
the rising suicide rate which has quadrupled since 2001, since
Bush came into office, suicides in all age groups.  If you look
at the violence in the United States, but also in other Western
parts, you have the police violence, you have the school
shootings, you have pornography, you have the total brutalization
of behavior, which almost is a breakdown of civilized relations
among people.  I don't want to go into this more deeply, because
you all know it.
        So we need urgently, if you want to save humanity, we need a
Renaissance of Classical culture.  We have to go back to an image
of man which emphasizes that, which separates man from all other
living species and that is the creativity of the mind of the
human being. The problem with popular culture is that it
{de}-emphasizes this creativity.  Pop music, for example, if
young people go to discos, it almost always goes along with drug
consumption, with something which destroys the creative faculties
of the mind.
        We need a Classical culture which emphasizes the beauty of
the best traditions of Greece, for example, Greek architecture,
Greek historical dramas, Greek philosophy, but also the beauty of
Dante, of Petrarca, of the Italian Renaissance; in the Spanish
culture, of the Andalusian renaissance, of Cervantes, of Goya; in
Germany, the Schiller, Beethoven, and many other great thinkers.
        Now, why is Classical culture so absolutely important?
Rather than being a soap opera, where you add irrational emotions
one after the other, without rhythm or rhyme, you have in
Classical culture either a poetical or a musical idea, and then,
according to very strict principles of composition, you develop
that idea until it is exhausted, in a thorough-compositional way;
and then you come to a conclusion on a higher level of reason.
And when you train your mind in this way, in Classical thinking,
you become more creative.  And it also leads to an education of
the emotions.  Because if you only rely on your senses, you are
just reacting.  That is why Friedrich Schiller demanded the
aesthetical education of man: Namely, through Classical art, the
aesthetical education teaches man to feel more noble and to
education your emotions up to the level of reason, so that you
can blindly follow your impulses because they will never tell you
anything different than what reason commands. This is why we have
to reintroduce beauty into art, and the great German poet
Friedrich Schiller said "Art which is not beautiful should not be
called art."
        In the Greek Classical period, you had the ideal of the
identity of the beautiful, the truthful, and the good.  And you
cannot be truthful if you are not trying to develop the idea of
beauty, and you cannot develop the good without being truthful.
So there is an inner connection between these because they
address the same faculty in the human mind.
        The future of mankind very clearly will be in space.  If you
look at the evolution of man, or even of life as it developed
through photosynthesis from the oceans to land, from lower to
higher species, and eventually the creative mankind, man settled
at the rivers and oceans first; then through infrastructure
development, opened up the landlocked areas of continents. And
now with the New Silk Road we are completing that phase of the
evolution, where man through infrastructure, develops the
landlocked areas of all continents.  And the natural extension of
that infrastructure development will be the opening up near
space, probably first a colony on the Moon, and that will be the
launching pad for future space operations as our energy sources
become more dense, and we will be able to even understand much
better what is the position of our planet in the Solar System, in
the Galaxy, and we will develop a much deeper understanding about
the laws of the universe and the relationship of creative
mentation to that Universe, because our mind is obviously not
outside of the universe, but it's part of the universe, and it is
the most developed part.
        A lot more studies have to made about that connection
between the mind and the universe at large, and the better we
understand that connection, the more rational we will become as a
human species.  The great German space scientist Krafft Ehricke
developed the beautiful notion of the "extraterrestrial
imperative," saying that man only becomes truly adult when we try
to understand and conquer space more deeply, because man will
only become fully rational when we do that.  And Krafft Ehricke,
who was a close friend of ours, said at the end of his life, that
the importance of great Classical art was absolutely crucial,
because if science is developed that does not yet say whether
it's applied for something good, or for something bad; it is
always man who applies that science which makes the difference.
And therefore, the aesthetical and moral education to beauty and
to the good is what will make the longevity of the human species
possible.
        Now, this is why we are saying, so emphatically, that the
economic development of the New Silk Road must be combined with a
Classical Renaissance of Classical culture, and that we must
bring forward the best traditions of each culture, of Chinese
poetry and philosophy, of Chinese painting, of Indian philosophy,
of African wonderful philosophical contributions from the time of
Timbuktu; of other great cultures, which each, at one point had a
high phase in their culture, like the Arab Renaissance of the
Abbasid Dynasty at which point the Arab culture was the most
developed.
        What we have to do, is we have to make the best phases of
these periods known, and then have a dialogue between these
cultures and then out of that will generate love for the other
culture; and we will indeed reach a new paradigm of civilization.
        If we make that cultural universal heritage known to all
children, in the universal education, I think the future will be
that such geniuses as Bach, Schiller, Einstein, will not be such
an exception.  There will never be a second Einstein, but we will
have many, many geniuses because we will provide children with a
much, much better opportunity to unfold all the potentials which
are embedded in them.
        Now,  I think we are not only on the verge of a potential
global war, but with the New Silk Road we are also at the edge of
entering a completely new paradigm of civilization, what I like
to call the "adulthood of mankind," and not any more behaving
like stupid two-year-old little boys kicking each other in the
knee.
        So we are really at an important historical moment, and I
would ask all of you to join in a Renaissance movement, because
I'm absolutely optimistic that if all good people on the planet
are working together to this aim, we can do it.

 

 

     




Vesten kan ikke længere skjule det
transatlantiske finanssystems sammenbrud

Leder fra LaRouchePAC, 4. oktober, 2016 – Overskrifter i den førende presse i Europa og USA gør det meget klart, at Finansherrerne over Wall Street og City of London ikke længere kan skjule det umiddelbart forestående og uundgåelige kollaps af deres finansielle system. Tag dagens Die Welt: »Deutsche Bank truer den amerikanske regering med systemisk kollaps.« Eller Bloomberg: »Eksistentiel trussel imod den økonomiske verdenorden overskygger IMF-diskussioner.« Artiklen i Bloomberg omhandler IMF’s World Economic Outlook, den årlige gennemgang af verdensøkonomien, og som blev offentliggjort i dag forud for det årlige IMF-møde, der finder sted i denne weekend i Washington, D.C.
Det bedste ville være at henvise til den aktuelle krise som »Ét minut over Midnat«, snarere end ét minut før. »De kan ikke skjule det«, sagde Lyndon LaRouche i dag. »De er håbløst bankerot

Problemet med udtalelserne fra IMF om krisen er imidlertid, at deres forslag til, hvad man skal gøre ved det, simpelthen er mere af de samme politikker, som forårsagede sammenbruddet i første omgang. For at retfærdiggøre dette, er de nødt til at lyve om årsagen. Transformationen af ​​vestlige storbanker til uregulerede spillekasinoer gennem at ophæve Glass-Steagall i 1990'erne nævnes aldrig, alt imens den paniske gennemførelse af massiv pengetrykning og negative renter til at holde sammen på for-store-til-at-lade-gå-ned-bankerne i de seneste år, på bekostning af den virkelige økonomi, bliver ordineret som løsningen snarere end årsagen.
Ironisk nok bliver fremkomsten af ​​populisme i hele Europa og USA beskrevet som krisens årsag, snarere end dens resultat. "Næret af stagnerende lønninger og aftagende jobsikkerhed, truer det populistiske oprør med at svække en verdensøkonomi, som, iflg. IMF’s administrerende direktør Christine Lagarde, allerede er 'svag og skrøbelig'«, skriver Bloomberg.

IMF kræver løsninger i form af tre punkter: flere frigjorte penge (negative renter), flere offentlige udgifter (kvantitative lempelser), samt strukturreformer (en eufemisme for anti-arbejdsmarkedspolitik). Det er faktisk, hvad der allerede finder sted i det transatlantiske område. Financial Times erkendte tirsdag, at »I årets sidste tre måneder forventes Storbritannien, Japan og Europa sammenlagt at slå mønt (trykke penge) for $506 milliarder til opkøb af værdipapirer – det største kvartalsvise beløb, der er trykt siden starten af den amerikanske Centralbanks, Federal Reserves, program for kvantitativ lempelse i 2009.«
Lige så vel som, at kendsgerningen om sammenbruddet ikke kan skjules for offentligheden, således kan og må den eneste mulige løsning fremlægges for befolkningen og den lovgivende magt (parlamenterne) i hele USA og Europa – nemlig den, at gøre en ende på det nuværende, bankerotte system ved hjælp af den selv samme metode, som Franklin Roosevelt gennemførte, da han i 1933 tiltrådte sit embede som præsident. Den omgående genindførelse af Glass-Steagall er den eneste metode til at redde de vestlige nationers kommercielle banksystem. Det vil betyde afslutningen af ​​de fleste af Wall Streets og Londons TBTF-bankers eksistens – men den eneste måde, hvorpå de virkelige mennesker, der er indfanget i den massive boble, kan redde livet, er at sørge for, at boblens kollaps sker på en lovmæssig måde, der gør det muligt for banktilsynsmyndigheder at skelne mellem hasardspillerne og så dem, der blev narret til at betro deres opsparing og pensioner til de kriminelle institutioner.

Så begynder det virkelige arbejde – det glædelige arbejde med at opbygge en nation. Gennem en genoprettelse af »det Amerikanske System« for statslig bankpraksis, som det blev udviklet af Alexander Hamilton, og udstedelse af kreditter gennem dette system til at skabe produktiv beskæftigelse og en forøgelse af reel produktivitet gennem øget energigennemstrømning (i produktionsprocesserne, -red.), kan nationen genrejses økonomisk. At genoprette Amerikas tabte engagement mht. videnskabens fremskudte grænser, gennem udvikling af fusionskraft og en genoplivning af vores rumprogram, vil give vore børn den nødvendige fremtid, befriet fra Obamas narkotika-befængte modkultur, og genintroduceret til klassisk musik og klassisk kultur, både vores egen kultur og kulturen hos vore naturlige allierede i Kina, Rusland, Indien og Mellemøsten, så vel som også de nyligt fremgangsrige nationer i Afrika og Latinamerika.

Det faktum, at, hvis man ikke opnår disse udviklinger nu, før den vanvittige valgproces er afsluttet i USA, så vil det snart føre os til en global krig, må adresseres. Aldrig har verden været tættere på atomkrig i takt med, at Obama og hans forsvarsminister »Atom-Ash« Carter deployerer verdens mest avancerede militære våben helt frem til de russiske og kinesiske grænser, samtidig med, at de lancerer et program formedelst $1 billion til at genopbygge hele USA’s atomvåbenarsenal. Carter insisterer på, at USA må opretholde en atomar »førsteangrebs«-kapacitet til at imødegå truslen fra russisk side om en imaginær, konventionel invasion af NATO. Faktisk træffer Obama og hans krigsparti nu forberedelser til krig mod russiske og syriske styrker i Syrien; en krig, som omgående kunne fremprovokere en verdenskrig.
Denne galskab har intet med den ikkeeksisterende trussel om militær aggression fra Ruslands eller Kinas side at gøre, men derimod med den meget reelle »trussel« imod det anglo-amerikanske, finansielle imperium, som Rusland, Kina, Indien og deres BRIKS-partnere har skabt. Med støtte fra næsten alle udviklingslande på Jorden, er disse nationer ved at skabe et nyt paradigme for verden, centreret omkring Kinas udviklingspolitik med Den Nye Silkevej og samarbejde om at komme narkotika og terrorisme i hele verden til livs.
Afsløringen af ​​Obamas åbenlyse støtte til terrorister og deres sponsorer, med hans (underkendte) veto af JASTA-loven, åbner vejen for, at han kan fjernes fra embedet for «høje forbrydelser og forseelser« (»high crimes and misdemeanors«, –red.).

USA og Europa kan og må slutte vanviddet og tilslutte sig det nye paradigme.

Verden er forandret – Alt kan nu ske, men Obama må afsættes

Leder fra LaRouchePAC, 12. sept. 2016 – Spektakulære begivenheder fandt sted i Asien i sidste weekend, hvor det overvældende flertal af verdens nationer forenede sig bag et nyt paradigme i verden, centreret omkring programmer for »storstilet udvikling«, ved hjælp af den Nye Silkevej og de nye finansinstitutioner, der er skabt af Kina, BRIKS og andre.

Denne samme ånd befandt sig over New York i den forgangne weekend, med Schiller Instituttets »Levende Mindesmærke« for ofrene for terrorangrebene den 11. september, 2001, og for ofrene for den politik for ’evindelige krige’, der siden da er blevet udløst af regeringerne Bush og Obama. Skønheden i Mozarts Rekviem, med deltagelse af flere end 3000 mennesker i de fire Schiller Institut-koncerter i flere bydele i New York City, skabte den samme frihedens ånd som det Nye Paradigme, der skabtes i Asien.

Begivenhederne demonstrerer i sandhed Friedrich Schillers indsigt i, at vejen til frihed går gennem skønhed.

Men stanken af ondskab og hæslighed hænger stadig over USA, med krigene, der fortsætter, den økonomiske degeneration, der accelererer, narkotika, der kræver hidtil uhørte ofre, og med pessimismen, der er fremherskende – især med en valgkampagne, hvor befolkningen foragter begge kandidater, og med god grund. Der er ingen duelig kandidat præcis, fordi det amerikanske borgersamfund har forsømt at fordømme den siddende præsident som den massemorder, han er – og som han faktisk er stolt af at være.

Men verden er ændret i de seneste dage. Lyndon LaRouche sagde i dag, at absolut hvad som helst er muligt i dette øjeblik med faseskifte i menneskehedens historie. Idet han tager de voksende beviser for Hillary Clintons alvorlige helbredsproblemer i betragtning, sagde LaRouche, at verden må undersøge problemet lidt mere i dybden:

Hillarys helbred begyndte at gå ned ad bakke, da hun kapitulerede over for Obama under og efter valget i 2008, hvor hun på tåbelig vis gik med til at tjene som hans udenrigsminister. Det onde, hun gjorde i denne stilling, blev induceret af Obama, dræberen, der lærte at tage drab til sig fra sin morderiske stedfar i Indonesien. Hendes fejltagelser og fiaskoer kan alle henføres til Obama. Det er Obama, som det drejer sig om. Han ødelagde hende. Hendes karakter ændrede sig. Hun degenererede til at blive et redskab for Obama. Bagved Obama spores skylden tilbage til det britiske monarki, som han elsker og adlyder, samt til dets saudiske skabelse for folkedrab, der tilsammen har skabt menneskehedens nuværende lidelser.

Obama må fjernes nu – der findes ingen anden mulig løsning. Hillary ville gå ned sammen med ham, og valgprocessen ville blive ændret, med nye kandidater, der måtte udpeges.

Ikke praktisk? Revolutioner skabes ikke gennem praktiske (pragmatiske) trin, men gennem kreative opdagelser og nyskabelser i den historiske kurs, som med den Nye Silkevej, og som det skete med Amerikas Grundlæggende Fædre, og som det reflekteres i Franklin Roosevelts og Jack Kennedys livsværk. Der kræves noget nyt og bedre i dag; i modsat fald vil civilisationens kollaps og atomkrig blive resultatet. Alternativet består ikke længere i en idé, der skal kaperes rent intellektuelt, men består i, at denne idé nu er under reel opbygning i Asien, og i de usædvanlige begivenheder i New York City denne forgange weekend.

De udviklinger, der vil finde sted i månederne september og oktober, er uforudsigelige, men der vil med sikkerhed finde betydningsfulde, dramatiske ændringer sted. Vi må være forud for udviklingskurven og handle, før kaos sænker sig over os. Der er pustet nyt liv i Kongressen gennem dennes handling imod saudierne, med den enstemmige vedtagelse af JASTA-lovforslaget, som Obama har lovet at nedlægge veto mod – men et veto, der kan tilsidesættes. Kongressen må ligeledes tvinges til at handle modigt og hurtigt, med vedtagelse af de Glass/Steagall-lovforslag, der nu er fremsat i begge Kongressens huse, med det formål at lukke Wall Street ned, før dets ukontrollerede kollaps tager nationen og hele verden med sig i faldet. Tiden er nu til optimisme og handling.

Et nyt paradigme giver nu liv til verden.
LaRouchePAC Internationale
Webcast, 8. september 2016

Verden har gennemgået en dramatisk ændring i løbet af de seneste par uger. Der har især været flere store, internationale konferencer, der repræsenterer en konsolidering af et nyt paradigme og en ny anskuelse blandt verdens nationer. Disse konferencer var det Østlige Økonomiske Forum i Vladivostok, Rusland; G20-mødet, der sluttede i Hangzhou, Kina; og dernæst de Sydøstasiatiske Nationers (ASEAN) møde med Kina, der fandt sted i Laos.

Under alle disse konferencer, under alle disse tre møder, har spørgsmålet drejet sig om at skabe en særlig synsmåde mht. økonomisk udvikling og samarbejde, og ikke om at respondere til kriser, ikke det Sydkinesiske Hav; det har været et langsigtet syn på, hvad fremtiden bliver.

Engelsk udskrift:

LaRouchePAC Friday Webcast with Helga Zepp-LaRouche:

A New Paradigm is Animating the World

The new paradigm animating the world was on full display over the past few weeks, in meetings of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostock, the G20 in Hangzhou, and the ASEAN / China meeting in Laos. While President Obama doddered around with nothing to offer, an increasing portion of the world is adopting policies of economic integration and development, including such science frontiers as the Chinese space program. This paradigm is not new — the LaRouches and the LaRouche movement have been organizing for the policies now becoming dominant, for over 40 years. Meanwhile, as the fifteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks approaches, a "living memorial" is offered in a series of concerts featuring the participation of the Schiller Institute New York Community Chorus.

Jason Ross hosts a discussion with Helga Zepp-LaRouche, a participant in the T20 meeting leading into the G20 summit, and Diane Sare, founding director of the Schiller Institute Chorus, on the changes sweeping the world, and how to inspire the US to join, rather than oppose, this new paradigm.

TRANSCRIPT

JASON ROSS: Hello! This is Thursday, Sept. 8th, 2016. You're watching our weekly LaRouche PAC webcast. This week we're recording the show a day early, because of some events coming up this weekend, which we'll be discussing a little bit later on. I'm Jason Ross, I'm the host today, and I'm going to be joined on the show today by two guests — by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, joining us from Germany; and by Diane Sare, joining us from the LaRouche Manhattan Project in the New York area.

Over the past few weeks, the world has changed dramatically. In particular, there have been several major international conferences that represent a solidification of a new paradigm and a new outlook among nations in the world. These conferences have been the Eastern Economic Form in Vladivostok, Russia; the G20 meeting, which concluded in Hangzhou, China; and then the Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meeting with China, which has been taking place in Laos.

In all three of these conferences, in all three of these meetings, the issue on the table has been creating a specific outlook for economic development and cooperation, not responding to crises, not the South China Sea; it's been a long-term outlook on what will the future be. I'd like to read a few quotes from presentations made at these conferences.

At the B20 meeting, the meeting of business leaders in advance of the G20 meeting in China, President Xi Jinping stated that "People are the foundation of the economy. We have to be oriented to the needs of the people, and raise their living standards and the quality of their lives. We will lift over 57 million people out of poverty, and poverty will be alleviated in all poor counties by 2020. This is a solemn promise to the Chinese people. We have lifted over 70% of the Chinese population out of poverty. We will make the pie bigger and we will continue the global fight against poverty."

At the G20 conference, which included a very beautiful opening ceremony, featuring the work of Beethoven and Schiller with theOde to Joy set to music, and quite a spectacle, the leaders there came to a conclusion in their final communiqué from the conference, which included, "We can no longer rely on fiscal and monetary policy alone to deal with the crisis. We envision an all-dimensional, multi-tiered, wide-ranging approach to innovation, which is driven by innovation in science and technology, and goes beyond it, to cover development-philosophy, institutional mechanisms, and business models, so that the benefits of innovation will be shared by all."

Meanwhile, at the G20 conference, the most Obama had to say to anybody, was some blubbering about "human rights," and discussion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which has absolutely no chance of possibly being passed through the Congress; it's dead.

At the ASEAN meeting, Obama saw what he thought was an opportunity to put on the agenda and make an issue of the South China Sea arbitration ruling that went against China; he wanted to put that on the agenda, make that an issue, and instead, that was not part of the discussion at all.

What was instead discussed was economic cooperation, the Maritime Silk Road, the Chinese One Belt, One Road project. And, as a matter of fact, on the Philippines in particular, which had launched the arbitration case against China regarding the South China Sea, the new President of the Philippines, [rodrigo] Duterte, when he was asked about Obama's plans to lecture him on violations of human rights in the Philippines' war on drugs, President Duterte said "I am a President of a sovereign state, and we have long ceased to be a colony. I do not have any master except the Filipino people; nobody but nobody. You must be respectful. Do not just throw questions. Putang ina," which which translates to "son of a whore") "I will swear at you in that forum," he said to Obama. "I do not want to pick a quarrel with Obama, but I don't kneel down to anybody, except the Filipino people."

In all of this Obama has absolutely been the odd man out. He has nothing to offer the world. Forbes magazine has recognized this in its coverage, for example, where it states that while Obama is talking about human rights and the TPP that will never occur, China has been "quickly building its regional credentials with a heavy focus on the economy of Southeast Asia…. China's Belt and Road initiative connecting Asia to Europe economically would let Beijing and parts of Southeast Asia build a major transportation network plus industrial co-operation projects. Beijing also happens to manage the China-ASEAN Investment Cooperation Fund, which bankrolls growth-linked infrastructure, energy and natural resources projects in Southeast Asia."

I think the contrast between Obama, who has nothing, with what China and Russia, and the BRICS nations — very specifically China and Russia, in particular — have been offering the world, strategically and economically, the contrast couldn't be clearer. With the participation of the G77 leader as well in these conferences, the world as a whole is adopting these as policies.

Let's bring on Helga Zepp-LaRouche now. Helga was a participant in the T20 meeting, which was a meeting with think tanks, a "Think20" meeting held in China in preparation for the G20 heads of state summit which just occurred. Helga, let me ask you about this. In your view, how has the world changed over the past couple of weeks, with these events?

HELGA ZEPP-LAROUCHE: Well, I think it is a change of world-historical dimensions. Because what has occurred between the Vladivostok Eastern Economic Forum, the G20, and then the ASEAN conference, is a tremendous change, in terms of where is the power center of the world. Let me just go through very quickly what the significance each of these of these different conferences was.

In Vladivostok, you had the integration of the Eurasian Economic Union with the Silk Road/Belt and Road initiative of China. That is very important because also Prime Minister Abe of Japan and President Park of South Korea participated, and there were agreements of long-term investments in development of the Far East of Russia, of Siberia, of huge energy investments, and integration of all of these economies of Asia.

This was followed by the G20 Summit, which I think was really an absolute breakthrough. First of all, China had put an enormous amount of effort into the preparation, by convening many, many pre-conferences, starting already a year ago, on many, many levels: ministers, think-tanks, institutions, and organizations. The intention of China was to transform the G20 from a mechanism which only responds to crises like 2008 — the financial crash of Lehman Brothers — into an organization which would form an alliance of countries to form a global governance mechanism which is problem-solving. Xi Jinping said repeatedly he wants to transform the G20 from a "talk shop," into a group of nations which acttogether. Looking at it, this was accomplished in many ways.

The Western media are hysterically and desperately trying to belittle this outcome of the conference, by saying "there were all these issues," but the only people who raised these so-called "issues," like the South China Sea conflict, and the issue of the Arbitration Court in The Hague,, and all other divisive issues, was really the West.

What happened is that the overwhelming number of nations are moving to adopt the Chinese model of economy. They are very right to do so, because China has proven an economic miracle of such dimensions, Xi Jinping said, to transform a country of 1.4 billion people has never been undertaken in history, and the fact that China could uplift 700 million people out of poverty into a very decent living standard, is also unprecedented. One of the outcomes of the summit was the adoption of a plan to eliminate poverty all over China by 2020, that is, only four years from now.

China succeeded to put the Chinese economic model as the attractive model for everybody to join, in a "win-win" perspective, on the agenda. Many countries must say, "Yeah, we can have the same economic development like China; that is much more favorable, than to join the United States or NATO or the Europeans in confrontation of a geopolitical nature."

The success of this summit is really unbelievable. It has changed the situation in the world, I think for the good; because the unipolar world, for sure, does not exist any more. As a matter of fact, as you mentioned, Forbes magazine and Time magazine had quite hysterical articles saying that Obama's "Asia pivot" policy has completely failed; this was the last opportunity to woo the countries of the region, but this completely failed, and the "Asia pivot" of Obama is completely dead; it failed.

The G77, the Non-Aligned Movement, the ASEAN countries — they are all are now moving in a completely different direction, and especially the fact that South Korea and Japan participated, with Russia and China in this Vladivostok conference, proves that these countries who are obviously allied with the United States, but do not want confrontation against Russia and China any more.

So this is extremely important. And it means primarily that those countries of the world which are not of the old regime of the World Bank, the IMF — the so-called "Washington Consensus," the so-called Bretton Woods institutions — they had no voice, and they now have a voice.

I think it is really very important that China explicitly adopted developing nations and emerging economies. First of all, they invited all of them — or a very large representation of them — to participate in the G20. China expressed the absolute commitment that every fruit of technological innovation would be shared with these countries, in order not to hold up their development. Now, this is a beautiful idea, which the first time was expressed by the German thinker Nikolaus of Cusa in the 15th Century, who already then had said that science and technology are so important for the development of mankind, that every time there is a new invention, it should be put in an international pool — to use modern words to say it — and that every country should have, then, access to it, not to be slowed down in their development.

It's an incredible change, because it means that, for the first time, an idea which was expressed by my husband Lyndon LaRouche in 1975, when he proposed a plan to develop the Third World, and he called it the International Development Bank [idb]. This was the idea which he presented both in Bonn, Germany at the time, and in Milan. He at that time wanted to have a $400 billion technology transfer per year to the developing sector from the advanced countries, in order to build up infrastructure, to build up industrialization and agriculture in the Third World.

He gave a very concrete form to a demand of the Non-Aligned Movement, which in 1976 at the Non-Aligned Movement in Colombo, Sri Lanka, had adopted a resolution demanding a just New World Economic Order. That Non-Aligned Movement resolution 90% of the words were those of the IDB. But you know what happened at that time was, all the leaders of the countries who had taken the initiative to fight for this — like Mrs. Gandhi from India, Mrs. Bandaranaike from Sri Lanka, Bhutto from Pakistan — all these leaders were either killed or destabilized; and this whole effort had a tremendous setback and it did not function.

Now as you probably know, and some of our viewers may know, we have been fighting in the LaRouche Movement ever since that time — it's now 40 years we have been fighting for the realization of the IDB or an IDB-like plan for the Third World; but the World Bank and the IMF, for all these years have done the exact opposite. The IMF conditionalities would completely deny any kind of development by having conditions which would force developing countries to pay debt instead of investing in infrastructure. They created the debt trap even, to make it impossible for countries to develop. So, the miserable condition of Africa, and many other countries in Asia and the Middle East and some countries in South America, is the result of the conscious policy to suppress development.

Now, after the Asia crisis [in 1997-98] the Asian countries obviously realized that they had to do something to protect themselves against speculation of George Soros at the time, so a process of creating new institutions developed. One was the Chiang Mai Initiative; but then recently — about three years ago — China took the leadership together with other BRICS countries, to create a completely alternative set of banking institutions. The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB); the New Development Bank of the BRICS; the New Silk Road Fund; the Maritime Silk Road Fund; the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Bank. So, you have now a completely alternate system of banking which is not casino; but only gives credit for investment in real infrastructure in the real economy.

So, what is happening now? I think people have to appreciate that, that what happened at the G20 meeting is the victory of a struggle of 40 years at least; to make it possible for human beings in Africa, in the so-called developing sector, to have a chance for the future. Such a powerful coalition has now emerged — the strategic alliance between China and Russia; Putin was the guest of honor at this G20 meeting — so the world really has changed. It's very important to say that these articles in Forbes magazine and Time magazine really don't get it. It's not anti-American; it's not anti-European. Xi Jinping and the other leaders have expressed many times that they want the United States and Europe to join in a "win-win" perspective.

So what is on the table now with the G20 meeting is for the first time a strategic initiative which is not geopolitical; because it offers a level of reason to cooperate internationally for the common aims of mankind. I think this is a tremendous historical breakthrough, which we really must make sure that the American people find out about what it is, and not be misled by mediocre journalists, who just can't think differently than geopolitics. It's like somebody who is evil, cannot imagine when he talks to a really good person, that the other person is not also evil. So what you read in the Western media is just the projection of the degenerate thinking of the media; but it's not what happened at this summit. So, let's make sure people really understand the historic significance of this change.

ROSS: Great! I think what you went through in terms of the history of your involvement, of your husband Lyndon LaRouche's involvement, of the LaRouche Movement's involvement over the past four decades in creating the victory for the policy that's being announced at these conferences, really goes to show the power of an idea. That over cynicism or over what seemed to be the structures and control of things, a good idea and successful and intense and ongoing organizing for it, really can make things happen.

I was going to ask if you wanted to say more about the history of the LaRouche Movement's involvement in this; or also if you have anything to say about how we're going to get the U.S. to join in this development instead of being opposed to it?

ZEPP-LAROUCHE: Well, first of all, I would like to make a short comment on the ASEAN conference, because that was in the footsteps, or following the G20 meeting; and that dispute is now settled. Because the ASEAN countries together with China, all agreed that all the disputes will be solved through peaceful negotiation and dialogue; they will work out a Code of Conduct until the middle of next year to this effect, and jointly fight threats to security like terrorism and other threats. They will act on the basis of the UN Convention of the Law of the Sea, or UNCLOS; and that means all these efforts to hype up the conflict between the Philippines and China with The Hague Arbitration Court has not succeeded. This was an effort to cause disunity, but this ASEAN conference said, "No, we want to have joint economic development. We will revive the regional economic development organization."

So, it shows that the foreign policy of China — not only at the G20 — was changing the agenda completely; but also in terms of regional conflict, that if you have a "win-win" perspective where you take into account the interests of the other, you can find solutions.

So then what is left for Obama, some papers were writing, was the implementation of the TPP; but as you already mentioned, both the House and the Senate and the two Presidential candidates all have said the TPP is out. The Speakers of the two Houses have said it will not get on the agenda this year; which means not during the time of Obama. So, the TPP is dead; the TTIP — it's the European version of the same thing — is also dead. So, I think the world really has changed; unipolar demands and the idea that you can decide rules on behalf of one country is no longer in existence. We have entered a completely new era of respect for the sovereignty of the other country, and an alliance of essentially republics for a greater good.

This is obviously a really important development. Not only does it mean that the United States has the chance to go back to the foreign policy of John Quincy Adams — because that is exactly what he had outlined for the United States to do; but it also means that the kind of system of perfectly sovereign nation-states working together for a joint development — which we have pushed, especially naturally Mr. LaRouche has pushed, for over 50 years — this is now becoming a reality.

So, I think that we can be very happy about that, because the LaRouche Movement for the last 40 years, but especially the last 25 years, convened literally hundreds of conferences around the world; in every major U.S. and European city, in Rio de Janeiro, in São Paolo, Brasilia, Mexico, Beijing, New Delhi, Moscow. Many even in Australia, in Egypt, in other African countries; we had seminars, conferences. I think we have now a renaissance movement and a world movement for development.

Since you mentioned the beautiful gala concert which preceded the G20, this was, in a certain sense, similar to what we are doing with the dialogue of Classical culture; because it started with a very beautiful series of Chinese folk songs, then it had scenes of the ballet of Swan Lake — danced in a lake — so the dancers would make sort of little fountains by each step, because they would step into the water. It gave it an unbelievable effect. And naturally, the fact that they chose the Ode to Joy, the beautiful poem by Schiller composed by Beethoven; where the text at one point says, "All men become brethren." "Alles Menschen werden Brüder", which is the poetical expression of the "win-win" perspective; that there is a higher goal of mankind. And that they choose that to be the high point of the gala, really shows that they have understood something very fundamental. They said, "Text written by Friedrich Schiller" so naturally many people would have thought about the Schiller Institute; and we have used the Ode to Joy many times to express the same idea.

So, I think that we can be really proud; because we did not do everything, but we had a very good part in producing this beautiful result.

ROSS: Wonderful! I'd like to return to get more thoughts from you, but I'd like to bring in Diane Sare at this point to discuss one of the opportunities for changing the United States. Which is that this weekend, this Sunday, is the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks from 2001. Diane — who is the founder and managing director of the Schiller Institute New York City Community Chorus, as well as a member of the LaRouche PAC Policy Committee — has been very engaged in a process that Mr. LaRouche has called a "Living Memorial" for 9/11; which is a series of concerts that are taking place this weekend.

I'd like to ask Diane about that, and first mention something about the context; which is that over the past month we've had the release of the 28 pages. The 28 classified pages of the Congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11; and we've got scheduled for a vote in Congress tomorrow the JASTA bill — the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act — which would make it possible for the family members, for victims of 9/11 to sue Saudi Arabia directly in U.S. courts for having aided in the commission of an attack on U.S. soil. This has the potential to really transform 9/11 from an opportunity for those pushing a policy of conflict and war, to really get justice on this, by redefining American strategic policy.

Let me ask you, Diane, you've been very involved in this, of course. Could you talk to us about the conception of a Living Memorial? What's happening this weekend? How are we putting that into practice?

DIANE SARE: I'll situate it in a question you asked earlier of Helga. The question is, how can the U.S. join this New Paradigm? What is holding us back? One very important aspect is not simply the idea of a unipolar world; but a unipolar world which is based on fantasy, and lies, and delusion. Which we have seen in particular — I wouldn't say it began with the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 — but after that, what did you have, since the truth was not told? You referenced the 28 pages being released, and the potential for JASTA to be passed this week. What happened? We had an attack which was , and instead we invaded Iraq. Then, we invaded Libya. Now, we have an insane President Obama who wants to overthrow Assad.

The actions of the United States on behalf of this British-Saudi Empire have explicitly created an increase in terror attacks around the world; an increase in war; an increase in the death rate. I was reading this morning that as many as 400,000 people in the New York metropolitan area have been affected by the attack on the World Trade Center, because of all of the toxic debris that was blowing through the air. You have over 1,100 people who have contracted rare forms of terminal cancer; and we run into them all the time here in New Jersey, people who were first responders, who were security, who were police who worked in the area.

So, you've had a great injustice; and because the injustice has been allowed to continue, the crime has only grown in magnitude. The number of people who have died as a result of this has been expanding. … what potential to remedy that situation; to bring justice, which would in a sense, clear the conscience of the American people to make us morally capable and morally fit to join with the rest of the world in this New Paradigm?

What Mr. LaRouche said explicitly when the question came up at one of the Saturday town hall meetings, on the idea of what can we do for these people who died on September 11? He said, a Living Memorial. So when I think of a Living Memorial, I think of Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg and his words that: the dead have already consecrated this ground; but it is up to us, the living, to make sure that they have not died in vain. Therefore, what we are seeking to do here, by doing something which is a completely beautiful and noble thing, is to enable the American people to address this; and to insist that our nation become something different than what it was. It is not a coincidence that this is occurring at the same time that we have these extraordinary breakthroughs.

ROSS: You could say more. I know that over the weekend we've got the Schiller Institute chorus is going to be participating in a series of concerts of the Mozart Requiem, of spirituals and other pieces, on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Could you tell us how the participation in these kinds of events shows a potential to change people? What kind of responses have you been getting from musicians, from politicians, from others involved in these events? What significance does this show you it having already?

SARE: Well, I think perhaps the most exciting thing that's occurred, is the growth of the chorus; because the people who participate in the chorus are the ones who in a sense will be the most transformed by these events. We began the chorus almost two years ago, in December of 2014, in the wake of the choking death of an African-American man who was strangled by the police in Staten Island, and the grand jury determined that there was no wrongdoing on the part of the police. There was a great deal of anger which was threatening to rip apart the city. And we said why not do something beautiful, dedicated to the sanctity of human life or the question of the brotherhood of man? Let's not let ourselves be divided; let's not have fits of rage. And the police officers who also have been put in a bind, because they're trying to protect our cities, our poorest populations which have been destroyed and made insane by the drug epidemic which is funded and run out of Wall Street.

So, what occurred is, we had about 100 people show up to sing; one of whom suggested that we form a community chorus, which I did. We went from week upon week where we had 3 people, 5 people, 12 people; finally a core of about 40. I can say at the performance of the Mozart Requiem that we will be doing in Manhattan on Saturday, there will be about 160 people in this chorus. They are themselves telling others that they're profoundly affected. We know that members of the Fire Department in Brooklyn — the brigade where every single one of them was killed on September 11th — they hold a special Mass every year. This year, our chorus is going to be involved in singing the Mozart Requiem as part of the Mass; and members of the Fire Department there were very moved that someone had thought to do something on this level to honor those people who made the ultimate sacrifice in the aftermath of that.

So, it's opening up and inspiring many people. Instead of just saying, "We're going to swallow this, we're going to take it. We're not going to talk about this. We're going to act like nothing happened, and we're going to presume we can never get justice." There's a sense now that "No, we don't have to go along with this any more. We canget justice." I would just say that my point earlier, that in this way, the United States could be transformed to make it possible that we would no longer act as a cat's paw for the British Empire; but be capable of joining with China and Russia. And I'll further say that the beauty of this potential development has absolutely nothing to do with the stupid elections and the idiotic candidates that we have; but is from a much higher standpoint.

ROSS: Good. Diane, did you have anything else you'd like to say on that topic? I'd like to ask Helga a question. Do you have anything else, Diane?

SARE: Go ahead; that's fine.

ROSS: OK. Well, I wanted to ask Helga, let's paint for our viewers an idea of a future, if we could. With the U.S. dropping this zero-sum game, geopolitical approach, with the U.S. and Europe adopting the proposals that you're putting forward, what could the world be like in 5 or 10 years? Is this an endless, perpetual fight? Or what does victory look like? What could the world be like?

ZEPP-LAROUCHE: Well, I think things can change very quickly if the United States and Europe would adopt the Glass-Steagall banking separation law; which is, as you know, in bills in Congress in the Senate, and I was quite happily reacting when I saw that Black Lives Matter is now demanding from Hillary Clinton that she should adopt Glass-Steagall. Because you can only fight racism if you fight the injustice caused by Wall Street; I thought this was an irony. So, if the United States and Europe — which is bankrupt; let me just spend one sentence on that.

China has growth rates anywhere from 6.7%, they want to have now 7% again; India had even 8% growth rates. Other Asian countries are going in the same direction. And what is the growth rate in Europe? The new statistics of the Eurozone just came out — 0.3%; and in France, Italy, and Finland — 0%. Then naturally, all the parameters are really alarmist; the headlines today are Draghi, the head of the European Central Bank, has no more options. He's running out of options because of negative interest rates, quantitative easing, helicopter money; all of these are signs of a dying system. And then naturally, you have Deutsche Bank, which is having all the parameters like Lehman Brothers in 2008; the credit default swap costs are now exactly like for Lehman Brothers just before it blew up. If that happens, you could have the next 2008 crisis this September or October.

So, the fight for Glass-Steagall is super-urgent; and naturally, as Lyndon LaRouche has stressed very emphatically with his Four Laws, this is not enough. Then you need to have a credit system, and you need to issue credit for real investment.

Now, if these changes can be done quickly — this year — even before the U.S. election occurs, then there is no reason why the world cannot enter a completely New Paradigm; stop geopolitical confrontation. The danger of war is not yet eliminated; I don't want to make a false security when it's not there. But at least with the new alliance between Russia, Turkey, Iran, the Syria question can be solved. With the 28 pages and the JASTA bill, maybe the Saudi support for terrorism can also be brought to an end. Then, even the German Economic Development Minister from the CSU — the Christian Social Union — made a speech yesterday in the Parliament, demanding a Marshall Plan for Africa. He said, this present global system is a failure; it has created forms of early capitalism in many parts of the world. This cannot continue. In the next 30 years, 2 billion babies will be born alone in Africa; they need many jobs, many teachers, real investment. He demanded that the WTO [World Trade Organization] be transformed from a free trade into a fair trade mechanism. So, this is a conservative politician from Germany of the Merkel government; and he's the only one who so far has the courage and the vision to say these things. But that's actually true.

With the new alliance I described earlier in the context of the G20, now Japan is starting to invest massively in Africa; and this was welcomed by China. China said we are not in Africa for competitive reasons, but the need for development is so big, we are happy if India and Japan are all investing; and naturally, Europe should invest. The United States should have to overcome the poverty and build up the Middle East; rebuild the war-torn region — Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Libya, all of Africa. If all of these countries would be developed with the extension of the New Silk Road program and all countries would work together, poverty could be eliminated in a very short period of time; maybe in two years.

Gerd Müller, the Development Minister, pointed out that 80% of Africans still do not have access to electricity. Now that could be very, very quickly changed; we have developed in our program of the World Land-Bridge, a comprehensive development plan for Africa. Infrastructure, bridges, ports, fast train systems, roads, the development of agriculture and industry, the creation of large amounts of freshwater to fight the desert through peaceful nuclear energy, desalination of ocean water, the ionization of moisture in the atmosphere. In a few years, Africa and those parts of the world which are still in poverty could look like beautiful gardens, forests, agriculture, new cities. People studying to become scientists, to become musicians, to become artists.

The human potential for creativity has just been scratched on. So far, we have only outstanding geniuses like once a century. You had Plato, Cusa, Kepler, Leibniz, Beethoven, Einstein, a couple of more people I am not naming here; and these were relatively rare phenomena. If we go in the road now on the horizon, and every child on this planet can have access to universal education, because there is enough to eat, there is enough housing so that the child can study and is not distracted by poverty or by Pokémon Go, or some other idiotic thing. But the child can learn Classical music, bel cantosinging, learn geography, learn astronomy, learn the history of the Universe, the history of mankind, universal culture. Love other cultures by knowing the beauty of Chinese painting, of Indian drama, of poetry from Persia.

Once you know these cultures, you cannot help but say this is actually enrichment; all racism would go, all xenophobia would go. The world community would just be working together for the common aims of mankind.

Developing breakthroughs like thermonuclear fusion power in the short term; space colonization in the short and medium term; and discover new breakthroughs we have not even an inkling of to ask the right question. We are not an Earth-bound system; by no means. The ecologists are always talking about finding solutions within Earth-bound systems; this is complete nonsense. Mankind is a species which naturally can develop the planet with infrastructure and open up landlocked areas on Earth; but the continuation of this infrastructure will be in close space. The Moon being the first target; and other objects, asteroids will be studied. Eventually, we will have the means to take longer space flights to Mars and other bodies in space. We will become a human species where the beautiful idea of Vladimir Vernadsky that the noosphere will take over the biosphere more and more; what he meant by that is that human discoveries, human scientific and technological innovation, will be what will rule and dominates the world more and more.

From that standpoint, the fact that China decided to put the innovation in the center of their efforts, is really the right step in the right direction. I can see, and I hope to see this in my lifetime, that the relations among nations will completely change; that you no longer are looking full of mistrust and xenophobia against everything which is foreign, but that people will become much more educated. There will be much more patriots and citizens of the world; world citizens, which must not be a contradiction with what was said by Friedrich Schiller 200 years ago. And that we will basically give up all those stupid habits which prevent our creative potential from unfolding. People will have intelligent discussions; they will have loving relations among themselves by furthering the interest of the other.

So, I think we are at the verge of becoming adult; I think right now the human race behaves like little uneducated, spoiled two-year-olds who kick against the knee of your colleague, and they scream and say, "This is my toy!" That's about the mental level of geopolitics.

I think that is not worthy of man; I think man is meant to be a creative species, fully loving each other. Therefore, the Ode to Joythat was played at the gala evening in Hangzhou is really the vision of the future.

ROSS: Wonderful! I just want to add one thing on that, which is that you had mentioned how China had put technology as a major factor in their outlook on things. And when that's coming from China, it really means something. China is the nation that has gone and had a landing for the first time in decades. It's China that in two years, plans to have the first-ever landing on the far side of the Moon. And it's China which in that process, is offering for international use, the use of a communications relay satellite that they'll have with the Moon; that they plan to make available to other nations who want to do work there.

That, their fusion program; it really shows the potential on the highest level of economy. Your husband has pointed out for decades that infrastructure provides a platform for meeting the productive needs of society. As you said, children being able to have enough food to be able to concentrate on education; on learning about the great cultures of the world, of their past cultures, to be able to contribute to it in the future. We're not citizens of the world; we can be citizens of the Solar System, and we've really got a very broad potential outlook for ourselves. On that highest level, it's driving mankind as a species forward; which we can do through collaboration on science. That really lets us collaborate on the highest possible level.

Let me ask, are there any final words from either of you? Do you have any concluding remarks?

ZEPP-LAROUCHE: Yeah, I would like people to — I'm aware of the fact that what I'm saying is not the mainstream opinion about China, about all these countries. I would ask the audience to not just dismiss, if you disagree with what I said, but please take the effort to look into it yourself. Look at the speeches of Xi Jinping and the other leaders. Look at what China is doing. Study Confucius, and you will find out that there is indeed a completely different philosophy; and that philosophy is much, much closer to what the United States was when it was founded, than most people would imagine. Both in terms of economics, but also in terms that the government should be there for the common good; this is an idea which almost has been lost in the last decades.

I think people should just not dismiss it. Once you are convinced that what I have said is true, help us to get the United States onboard. The United States needs a Silk Road. China has a plan to have 50,000 km of fast train system by 2020; and we have developed an extension of the Silk Road for the United States, also having a huge system of fast trains connecting the East and the West Coasts, the North and the South. Build a couple of new cities in places in the United States which make sense. And there is no reason why the United States cannot be part of this. It's not anti-American; America should become part of it, and you should help to do this.

ROSS: Wonderful. Well, thank you both very much for joining us. Thank you to our viewers for joining us. If you're in the New York area, definitely become involved in this process over the weekend. You can find out more at the Schiller Institute New York City Chorus website. Stay tuned to LaRouche PAC; subscribe so you don't miss our shows, and we'll see you next time.

 




POLITISK ORIENTERING den 8. september 2016:
Hvad danske medier ikke siger om G20-topmødet i Kina

Med formand Tom Gillesberg

Video: Kan ses på: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpTh6MNYlas

 

Lyd:




Obama er i gulvet, men ikke dømt ude: Forøg presset

7. september 2016 (Leder) – De amerikanske mainstreammedier, med New York Times i spidsen, er blevet tvunget til at erkende, hvad verdensledere på denne uges topmøder i Asien allerede ved: USA’s præsident Barack Obama var sat udenfor i Hangzhou og Laos, med betydningsfulde nationer fra Eurasien og andre dele af verden, der lægger sig på linje med det Nye Paradigme, som tydeligst repræsenteres af Kinas program for eurasisk udvikling, ’Ét bælte, én vej’.

Onsdag mødtes statslederne fra de 10 ASEAN-lande med kinesiske ledere til det 25. ASEAN-Kina jubilæums-topmøde. Mødet var intet mindre end en total afvisning af Obamaregeringens forsøg på at udnytte den ulovlige afgørelse fra den Permanente Voldgiftsret i Haag om det Sydkinesiske Hav og drive en kile ind mellem Kina og dets naboer. ASEAN-lederne tilsluttede sig Kina og aflagde løfte om at udvikle reglerne for operationer for det Sydkinesiske Hav, og for fremme af programmerne for den Nye Silkevej og den Maritime Silkevej, der allerede har beriget utallige borgeres liv i området. Selv Forbes måtte indrømme, at Kinas investeringer i områdets infrastruktur har overtrumfet alle Obamaregeringens bravader.

Mellem friktionerne med de kinesiske myndigheder, der var vært for G20-topmødet i Hangzhou, og Obamas skænderi med den filippinske præsident Duterte over Obamas selvretfærdige planer om at presse den filippinske leder til at opgive at slå hårdt ned på narkohandlere og terrorister, har Obamas præsidentskabs endegyldigt sidste besøg i Stillehavsområdet sandeligt vist sig at være en absolut katastrofe.

På samme måde indikerer rapporter fra Mellemøsten, at den syriske regering med støtte fra Rusland og Iran har genoprettet belejringen af det sydøstlige Aleppo og afskåret oprørsstyrker fra verden udenfor. Den totale genindtagelse af Aleppo vil fundamentalt ændre kursen i den fem år lange krig og vil tvinge Obama til endnu engang at vende sig mod den russiske præsident Putin for at finde en udvej af den diplomatiske/militære fiasko.

Obama er tydeligvis slået i gulvet. Men han er endnu ikke dømt ude, og Lyndon LaRouche advarede i dag om, at Obama må holdes under uophørligt pres for at forhindre yderligere handlinger, såsom destabiliseringen af Brasilien, der var en pil, som sigtede på BRIKS’ hjerte.

Obama står over for endnu et umiddelbart forestående nederlag, der vil give resonans hele vejen til Riyadh og London. Formand for Repræsentanternes Hus Paul Ryan meddelte onsdag, under enormt, tværpolitisk pres, at JASTA-lovforslaget vil komme til afstemning fredag.

Loven om retsforfølgelse af sponsorerne af terrorisme (JASTA) vil gøre det muligt for ofre og pårørende, der mistede familiemedlemmer i terrorangrebene 11. september (2001), at retsforfølge det saudiske monarki. Som Daily Telegraph har rapporteret i sommerens løb, så vil, hvis JASTA vedtages, det britiske monarki også kunne retsforfølges for 11. september og andre handlinger, hvor briterne har beskyttet og sponsoreret international terrorisme. Præsident Obama har svoret at nedlægge veto imod JASTA, hvis det når frem til hans skrivebord – og det kunne meget vel ske på 15-års dagen for 11. september, hvor alles øjne er rettet mod New York City, hvor der vil blive en weekend med historiske mindebegivenheder, centreret omkring Schiller Instituttets kors deltagelse i fire mindekoncerter i New York og New Jersey, til ære for dem, der døde i angrebene 11. september og under de redningsaktioner, der fulgte.

Efter CDU’s slående nederlag i kansler Angela Merkels egen hjemstat i Tyskland, (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern), hænger Merkel-regeringen også ude i tovene. Det er afgørende, at der vedtages en stor ændring i økonomisk politik i Tyskland, og det kan kun ske i en post-Merkel, post-Schäuble situation. Krisen i Deutsche Bank bliver mere og mere åbenbar, med paralleller, der fremkommer i Thestreet.com og andre finansielle udgivelser, mellem Deutsche Bank og Lehman Brothers på tærsklen til bankerotten.

Vi er kommet til et virkeligt historisk øjeblik. Ledere, der repræsenterer et flertal af verdens befolkning samles omkring et nyt, fremtidsorienteret paradigme med samarbejde, og rækken af topmøder, der startede i Vladivostok og forsatte i Hangzhou og Laos har fremmet denne sag over al forventning.

Det tyske Handelsblatt opdager BRIKS-paradigme

6. september 2016 – Til forskel fra resten af de tyske mainstreammedier, har den førende tyske erhvervsavis Handelsblatt en noget mere fornuftig kommentar til G20-topmødet og bemærker, at, parallelt med dette topmøde, er »en ny magtkonstellation i verden« [sic], der vil afgøre fremtiden, kommet til syne i Hangzhou, nemlig med BRIKS, der holdt et separat, uformelt topmøde i Hangzhou.

Xi Jinpings prominente, bilaterale møder med ledere af afrikanske organisationer, med præsidenterne for Tchad, Egypten og Kasakhstan umiddelbart før G20-møderne, demonstrerer, at hans bemærkninger om ’nationer på tærsklen’, der bliver vigtigere, skal tages alvorligt. Kina og Indien er hoveddrivkraften bag den nye vækst på globalt plan, selvom Kinas 19 G20-partneres samlede andel af det globale, økonomiske resultat rent nominelt udgør 80 % og således stadig er langt højere end disse to staters, bemærker Handelsblatt og tilføjer, at tysk industri er opmærksom på denne nye trend.

Den forestående uge, set i universalhistorisk perspektiv

5. september, 2016 (Leder) – De afgørende uger, som vi nu har for os, stiller dette spørgsmål til alle amerikanere (blandt andre): Hvordan er det muligt, at det kan lykkes for det enkelte individs inderste, private tankers »lille hjul« at dreje det »store hjul« i den historiske proces, der involverer den kurs og skæbne, som nationen, og menneskehedens mere end syv milliarder individer generelt, i fremtiden, i de kommende århundreder, vil få?

Den virkelige historie om det netop afsluttede G20-topmøde i Kina er den, at den kinesiske præsident Xi Jinping, sammen med Ruslands Putin og udviklingslandene under anførsel af BRIKS, samt Japan m.fl., fremtvang spørgsmålet om udskiftningen af det nuværende finansielle system. De insisterede på, at Wall Street/London-systemet, baseret på hasardspil, har kurs mod en ny krise, og at det må erstattes af et produktionsorienteret system, funderet i videnskab og store internationale, avantgarde-projekter: det system, der er centreret omkring Kinas Nye Silkevejs-politik, som præsident Xi kalder »Ét Bælte, Én Vej«.

Det finansielle fundament for dette nye, menneskelige system leveres af en række udviklingsbanker, som Kina har været med til at lancere, såsom den Asiatiske Infrastruktur-Investeringsbank (AIIB), og BRIKS’ Nye Udviklingsbank (NDB).

Som Helga Zepp-LaRouche i går bemærkede, vil det, efterhånden, som resultaterne af G20-topmødet og det forudgående Vladivostok-topmøde i løbet af de næste par dage bliver kendt, blive klart, hvem, der forsvarer menneskehedens sag, konfronteret med udsigten til økonomisk udslettelse, og hvem, der forsøger at lægge hindringer i vejen. I løbet af disse dage vil den amerikanske Kongres, den 6. september, træde sammen, og FN’s Generalforsamling træder sammen den 13. september. Samtidigt vil rækken af topmøder på højeste niveau fortsætte i Asien.

Det, som den amerikanske Kongres må gøre, når den atter træder sammen, er at vedtage Glass-Steagall, for hvilken lov der er fremsat tværpolitiske lovforslag i begge Kongressens huse. Kongressen må ligeledes handle på de kendsgerninger, der er blevet afsløret i de »28 sider« af den Fælles Kongresundersøgelsesrapport om 11. september (2001): den må handle med henblik på at fjerne Obama for hans beviste, overlagte mørklægning af saudiernes (og briternes) ansvar for 11. september, og samtidig fremtvinge flere skjulte fakta om den britisk/saudiske sammensværgelse, og om Bush’ og Cheneys – men først og fremmest Obamas – medskyldighed. Det faktum, at vi ikke fjernede Bush og Cheney, gav os Obama, som er endnu værre. Hvis vi nu ikke fjerner Obama, vil vi få noget, der er værre endnu, hvis vi da ellers stadig vil være i live til at opleve det.

Netop nu, hvor omgående, politisk handling er presserende nødvendig, forbereder ledelsen af Lyndon LaRouches bevægelse, der er lokaliseret på Manhattan, det, som LaRouche har kaldt for et »levende mindesmærke« for ofrene for 11. september – først og fremmest de direkte ofre og deres familier, men også USA og enhver del af verden, som er blevet offer for forbrydelsen og dens mørklægning. Centrum for dette »levende mindesmærke« vil blive opførelser af Mozarts Rekviem, i hvilken en stor skaber fejrer, ikke døden, men det uforgængelige liv og dets mission, konfronteret med døden, igennem alle århundreder i fortid og fremtid.

Med dette »levende mindesmærke«, og ud over dette, arbejder den Manhattan-centrerede LaRouche-bevægelse på at genskabe et funktionsdygtigt præsidentskab for USA, ud fra selvsamme Manhattan-lokalitet og gennem de samme principper, som Alexander Hamilton anvendte til at skabe det oprindelige George Washington-præsidentskab for USA.

For at vende tilbage til vores indledende spørgsmål om »det lille hjul« og »det store hjul«: Politikken med Den Nye Silkevej begyndte som en idé: ideen om den Europæiske Produktive Trekant, som Lyndon LaRouche udviklede i slutningen af 1980'erne, og som han, sammen med sin hustru Helga, videreudviklede til den Eurasiske Landbro, Den Nye Silkevej og Verdenslandbroen. Og det, der udløste det kinesiske rumprogram, som i 2018 for første gang nogensinde vil lande en robot på Månens bagside – var også først en idé. Det var Ronald Reagans Strategiske Forsvarsinitiativ (SDI), der overbeviste det kinesiske lederskab om behovet for et forceret, videnskabeligt udviklingsprogram, inklusive et forceret rumprogram, som vi vil gå i dybden med i det næste nummer af EIR, 9. september. Det Strategiske Forsvarsinitiativ var en politik, der helt fra bunden af blev opfundet af Lyndon LaRouche, og som overbeviste Reagan.

Og de udviklingsbanker, der i dag bliver lanceret, blev udtænkt af Lyndon LaRouche i 1970'erne, hvor de blev forelagt FN’s Generalforsamling af Guyanas agtværdige udenrigsminister, nu afdøde Fred Wills.

Som den store, russiske videnskabsmand Vladimir Vernadskij viste i første halvdel af det tyvende århundrede, så er den menneskelige noesis, eller kreative tænkning, den mest magtfulde kraft i universet. Der er ingen kraft, der kan måle sig med det menneskelige intellekt med hensyn til kreativ opdagelse.

RADIO SCHILLER den 5. september 2016:
G20-topmødet: Kina sætter dagsordenen

Med formand Tom Gillesberg:




STARTEN PÅ EN HISTORISK UGE

4. september 2016 (Leder) – Søndag, den 4. september, gav præsident Xi Jinping startskuddet til G20-topmødet for statsoverhoveder i Hangzhou, Kina. Åbningsceremonien omfattede en bevægende opførelse af Ode til Glæden, der anslog den inspirerende tone for hele topmødet. I sine åbningsbemærkninger gentog præsident Xi sit krav fra den foregående dag ved B20-forum for erhvervsledere om, at hele det globale finanssystem må gennemgribende ændres, for at vende den aktuelle, globale krise omkring, og at G20 må tage føringen med hensyn til at skabe de nødvendige ændringer, der må have innovation og samarbejde mellem nationer som drivkraft.

Præsident Xis tale lørdag ved B20 var en stærkt ekko af den politik, som Lyndon og Helga LaRouche har udviklet hen over årtier, inklusive Helgas seneste opfordring til, at G20-mødet tager skridt til fuldt og at virkeliggøre Verdenslandbroen. 

Den signifikante opførelse af Ode til Glæden, et digt af Friedrich Schiller med musik af Ludwig von Beethoven, var en yderligere indikation på Xis forpligtelse over for principperne om videnskabeligt og teknologisk fremskridt og »win-win«-samarbejde mellem alle verdens nationer.

Den kinesiske præsident Xi Jinping holder hovedtalen ved Business 20-mødets åbningsceremoni (B20.)

Se uddrag på dansk af talen her.  

Forud for G20-mødet blev der afholdt et uformelt møde for BRIKS-nationernes statsoverhoveder, hvor der blev gjort yderligere forberedelser til BRIKS-topmødet den 15. – 16. oktober, med den indiske premierminister Modi som vært, i Goa, Indien. BRIKS- og G20-begivenhederne begyndte umiddelbart efter afslutningen af det Østlige Økonomiske Forum i Vladivostok, Rusland, med præsident Vladimir Putin som vært, hvor den samme dagsorden med eurasisk udvikling og en samarbejdsånd mellem verdens ledende nationer blev promoveret. De to æresgæster ved Vladivostok-forummet var Japans premierminister Abe og Sydkoreas præsident Park, der således udvider alliancens samarbejde.

I stærk kontrast hertil brugte USA’s præsident Barack Obama anledningen til at promovere alle de konfliktområder, der splitter USA og Kina, inklusive den Permanente Voldgiftsrets ulovlige afgørelse om det Sydkinesiske Hav, beskyldningerne om, at Kina skulle dumpe stål på verdensmarkedet, samt andre friktioner. Obama dukkede op i Hangzhou for at forsøge at genoplive det, som er dødt – hans svindelnummer med Trans Pacific Partnerskab (TPP) – såvel som også for at fremprovokere konflikt. Obama kunne ikke engang modstå fristelsen til at kaste kold vand på sin egen udenrigsminister John Kerrys indsats for at indgå en aftale med Rusland om fælles militære operationer imod Islamisk Stat og al-Qaeda.

G20-topmødet fortsætter mandag, efterfulgt af endnu et asiatisk, økonomisk topmøde i Laos, den 6. – 9. september, der efterfølges af et møde mellem de 10+1 – de ti ASEAN-nationer og Kina.

Alt imens præsident Obama fortsætter med at isolere sig selv fra det voksende flertal af nationer, der forsøger at fremkomme med løsninger på det fremstormende kollaps af det transatlantiske område og fremstødet for krig, der kommer fra det døende britiske imperiesystem, så afsluttes denne uge med et intenst højdepunkt, med rækken af fire opførelser af Mozarts Rekviem i New York City-området, for at mindes 15-års dagen for angrebene den 11. september, 2001, på World Trade Center og Pentagon, hvor 3000 mennesker blev dræbt. Schiller Instituttets kor og orkester vil deltage i disse koncerter.

Med tidligere senator Bob Grahams pressekonference sidste onsdag i Washington, D.C., og med en afstemning i Repræsentanternes Hus om Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorisme Act (JASTA) (Loven om Retsforfølgelse af Sponsorer af Terrorisme), der skal finde sted, når Kongressen genoptager arbejdet den 6. september, vil spørgsmålet om juridisk retfærdighed dominere denne uge. Som senator Graham sagde til medierne i Washington i sidste uge, så er proppen taget af flasken, med frigivelsen den 15. juli af det 28 sider lange kapitel af hans oprindelige Fælles Kongresundersøgelses-rapport om 11. september, og nu må den fulde sandhed om Saudi-Arabiens rolle i historiens værste terrorangreb på amerikansk jord komme frem. Det betyder, at hele det anglo-saudiske terrorapparat nu kan bringes til fald, og det betyder igen, at de primære kræfter, der er ude på at forhindre virkeliggørelsen af Verdenslandbroen og et nyt paradigme for relationer mellem Jordens nationer, kan besejres, én gang for alle.

Asiatisk Infrastruktur-Investeringsbank og BRIKS’ Ny Udviklingsbank
har planer om at finansiere projekter i fællesskab

Torsdag, den 1. september 2016 – Dagen før åbningen af det Østlige Økonomiske Forum i Vladivostok, sagde vicepræsidenten for Ny Udviklingsbank (NDB, også kendt som BRIKS-banken), Zhu Xian: »Vi har etableret gode relationer med AIIB. Og vi har også allerede indledt diskussioner om mulige former for samarbejde. For det første har vi planer om i fællesskab at finansiere nogle projekter. For det andet har vi allerede underskrevet den relevante aftale om samarbejde. I øjeblikket er der mange investeringsprojekter, der har behov for finansiering. Det er derfor, vi ikke bør konkurrere, men komplementere hinanden«, rapporterer TASS i dag.

Både AIIB og NDB har hovedkvarter i Kina og blev etableret for i et partnerskab at finansiere projekter, der ville udfylde det enorme infrastruktursvælg, der har lammet udvikling i Eurasien, for ikke at sige i hele verden. Nominelt fokuserer NDB på de fem BRIKS-lande (Brasilien, Rusland, Indien, Kina og Sydafrika), mens AIIB fokuserer på asiatiske lande. Iflg. TASS sagde Zhu ligeledes, »Jeg tror, vi komplementerer hinanden, og en masse investeringsprojekter mangler finansiering … Vi ønsker at være det 21. århundredes finansinstitution, men ikke at være en kopi af de traditionelle finansinstitutioner«, tilføjede han med henvisning til IMF og Verdensbanken.

Alt imens de fælles finansieringsprojekter endnu ikke er færdige, sagde Zhu Xian, at NDB’s »eksperter er i færd med at undersøge mulighederne for at finansiere projekter for byggeri af veje i Rusland«. »Flere russiske projekter har tiltrukket sig vores opmærksomhed, især i transportsektoren«, tilføjede Zhu, iflg. TASS. Til Sputnik sagde Zhu i dag desuden: »Vi har planer inden for andre statsobligationsmarkeder, inklusive Rusland. Vi fører allerede drøftelser med den russiske regering om mulighederne for også at udstede statsobligationer i rubel i Rusland.«




Argentinas tidligere præsident Fernandez de Kirchner
identificerer BRIKS som det strategiske mål
for Dilma Rousseffs afsættelse i Brasilien

Torsdag, den 1. september 2016 – I bemærkninger til Argentinas Radio 10 og avisen Pagina 12 i kølvandet på det »juridiske« kup, der blev gennemført imod den brasilianske præsident Dilma Rousseff i går, naglede tidligere argentinske præsident Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner kuppet præcist, da hun sagde, at det var »et element af en regional destabilisering, der kommer fra interne og eksterne, koncentrerede økonomiske sektorer«, der ikke kan lide Dilma Rousseff, fordi denne har bragt hele Sydamerika sammen med BRIKS ved topmødet i Fortaleza i juli 2014.

I et interview med Radio 10’s Roberto Navarro, vært for Tv-programmet Economica Politica, anklagede Cristina, at Brasilien, Argentina, Ecuador og andre nationer bliver angrebet for at have vedtaget en mere uafhængig udenrigspolitik og allieret sig med Rusland og Kina. Da intervieweren spurgte hende, om det, hun sagde, var, at USA reagerede på den udenrigspolitik, som Dilma, hun selv og andre havde vedtaget, specificerede hun, at »det møde, som Dilma holdt i Brasilien mellem Mercosur, UNASUR og BRIKS, ikke behagede … de uden for kontinentet eksisterende magter«, der stod bag kuppet mod Rousseff.

»Vi oplever i øjeblikket en regional destabilisering«, sagde hun til Pagina 12. »Supermagterne«, der er ansvarlige for kuppet, er i færd med at orkestrere en »barsk strategi imod folkelige regeringer« – en vurdering, som den amerikanske statsmand Lyndon LaRouche i dag varmt bifaldt.

RADIO SCHILLER den 29. august 2016:
Det Østlige Økonomiske Forum i Vladivostok Rusland
vil være optakt til G20-mødet i Kina

Med formand Tom Gillesberg




Vi må afslutte den geopolitiske krig mod Yemen med en strategi for fred og udvikling.
Tale af Schiller Instituttets Ulf Sandmark ved støttekonference for Yemen i London.
Inkl. meget bevægende videohilsen fra lederen af Yemen-komiteen for
koordinering med BRIKS, Fouad Al-Ghaffari

Følgende er en tale, som Ulf Sandmark, repræsentant for Schiller Instituttet, holdt ved en todages konference i London til støtte for det yemenitiske folk imod den anglo-amerikanske-saudiske imperiekrig. Han blev også interviewet på konferencen, og det blev vist på Yemen Tv. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRcMfUoy19U

Af Ulf Sandmark, økonom, Schiller Instituttet, Sverige. 20. august 2016.

Jeg vil gerne takke arrangørerne af denne konference. Jeg anser denne konference for at være en milepæl i hjælpen til Yemen for at hævde dets suverænitet, i særdeleshed, fordi konferencen faldt sammen med den overvældende demonstration i Sanaa i går, med 4 millioner deltagere. Jeg er så imponeret af det yemenitiske folks mod, hvor de løber risikoen ved at demonstrere under direkte trussel fra det anglo-amerikanske-saudiske bombardement.

Det var en storslået manifestation af den yemenitiske nations suverænitet under landets nye regeringsråd og valgte parlament. Det, vi ser, er et folk, der har rejst sig for at befri sig selv fra den mest brutale aggression. Med denne demonstration har de allerede gjort sig til et frit folk i deres indre sind.

Yemen kunne nu gå med i den igangværende verdensrevolution, som organiseres af BRIKS-landene med deres voksende antal allierede. Det er mere end halvdelen af verdens befolkning, der har befriet sig selv rent mentalt fra den vestlige, globale, økonomiske og militære dominans. BRIKS har indledt en proces for at erstatte den gamle, anglo-amerikanske verdensorden og er begyndt at opbygge verden i et hæsblæsende tempo. BRIKS er nu i færd med at virkeliggøre de visionære infrastrukturprojekter, som allerede af Den alliancefri Bevægelse (NAM) og Bandung-konferencen i 1960’erne blev sat på dagsordenen. Hovedprojektet udgøres af Den Nye Silkevej [Det økonomiske Silkevejsbælte], der forbinder Eurasien over land, samt Det 21. Århundredes Maritime Silkevej, der fra Kina passerer Yemen på sin vej til den Nye Suezkanal.

BRIKS venter ikke. De opbygger deres egne finansinstitutioner, sikkerhedsorganisationer, infrastruktursystemer, industricentre, teknologi og videnskab. Dette betyder, at fredsbevægelserne har en ny måde, hvorpå de kan standse alle de geopolitiske krige, som krigen mod Yemen. Vi kan få Europa og USA til at gå med i projekterne i Den nye Silkevej. Dette ville gøre Europa og USA til BRIKS’ allierede, og allierede udkæmper ikke krige med hinanden. Krigshøgene kan omgås og gøres impotente. Samtidig kan dette gigantprojekt sætte alle vore arbejdsløse unge mennesker til at producere maskiner og andre nødvendige midler.

Jeg er her for at være med til at grundlægge en international koalition for at standse krigen imod Yemen, som vi i går diskuterede i workshoppen. Ideen i min organisation, det internationale Schiller Institut med Helga Zepp-LaRouche som leder, er at udbrede måder at virke for freden på, med en politik for økonomisk udvikling. Konstruktionen af Den nye Silkevej er det største fredsprojekt nogensinde, der opbygger freden ved at forbinde nationer i praksis, rent fysisk med jernbaner, hovedveje, kanaler og alle former for infrastruktur.

Vi vil erstatte de geopolitiske krige med et nyt paradigme for relationer i verden, en multi-polær verden i stedet for den døende verden under anglo-amerikansk dominans og finansbobler. Det nye paradigme er formuleret gennem den kinesiske præsident Xi Jinpings »win-win«-koncept, som er et koncept for fredeligt samarbejde, baseret på en genoplivelse af visdommen hos Kon Fu Tse (Konfucius). Den åbner Silkevejene for en fornyet dialog mellem civilisationer på det højeste filosofiske, kunstneriske og videnskabelige niveau, en dialog, hvori Yemen, »Visdommens land«, vil føle sig hjemme.

Blot inden for de seneste par måneder er Japan og Filippinerne blevet rekrutteret bort fra krigshøgene, der har presset på for at fremme en atomar konfrontation i det Sydkinesiske Hav. Japan begynder at samarbejde med BRIKS om gigantprojekter i det fjernøstlige Rusland, i Indien og Indonesien. Tyrkiet er i færd med at blive rekrutteret af Rusland og stabiliserer relationerne med Egypten, Israel, Kaukasus og den tyrkisktalende del af Centralasien og sandsynligvis med Syrien. Og Rusland har netop, hvad der er meget vigtigt, i FN blokeret en ny, saudisk resolution mod Yemen. Flere østeuropæiske lande, og ligeledes Grækenland, såvel som også det meste af Afrika og Latinamerika, er i færd med at orientere sig mod Den nye Silkevej og BRIKS. Selv her i London ønsker City [of London] at gå med i den kinesiske valutahandel, og der er således en modstand her, imod de krigshøge, der truer med atomkrig.

Dette kort over Verdenslandbroen (se fodnote) beskriver, hvorledes de Nye Silkeveje agter at nå ud til alle kontinenter. Forbindelsen over (under) Beringstrædet bliver en direkte forbindelse mellem Rusland og USA for at cementere deres fredelige samarbejde og opkoble de amerikanske kontinenter til Den nye Silkevej. Dette, sammen med opkoblingen af Afrika, vil skænke os en Verdenslandbro. Og Afrika kan opkobles, både i Egypten, til Spanien og Sicilien, men, hvad der er af afgørende betydning for Yemen, også under Bab El Mandeb-strædet til Djibouti. Dette kort er af Schiller Instituttet blevet udarbejdet på baggrund af diverse udviklings- og fredsprojekter, som vi har arbejdet med i løbet af de seneste 40 år. Det er en del af en Specialrapport med titlen »Den Nye Silkevej bliver til Verdenslandbroen«. I år har vi udgivet den udvidede arabiske oversættelse af denne rapport.

Den fremragende kamp for håb i Yemen

Uden håb findes der ingen fremtid. Med en plan for genopbygningen af Yemen gøres håbet konkret, om virkeliggørelsen af det yemenitiske folks potentialer, dets produktive evner, dets videnskab og dets rige arv. Schiller Instituttet er i kontakt med fremragende kæmpere i Yemen, der gør dette på trods af de anglo-amerikanske-saudiske bombardementer. De har stiftet Yemen-komiteen for Koordinering med BRIKS. Hver tirsdag mødes de modigt ved møder i Sanaa for at studere og udvikle planerne for Yemens genopbygning.

Deres leder, Fouad Al-Ghaffari, sendte en videofilm som en hilsen til Schiller Instituttets konference i Berlin for blot to måneder siden. Videoen demonstrerede det mest bevægende mod og den mest bevægede optimisme med kamp for menneskehedens højeste værdier. Jeg vil gerne afslutte min fremstilling med at dele denne video med jer, der viser hans rapport over, hvad de gør for at mobilisere håb og værdighed i Yemen.

Schiller Instituttets konference i Berlin blev dybt bevæget af denne video og vedtog følgende resolution:

Schiller instituttets konference i Berlin 25. – 26. juni (2016) sender de varmeste hilsener til støtte for den store, yemenitiske nation og Fouad Al-Ghaffaris studiegruppe. Deres modige, intellektuelle lederskab, bogstavelig talt midt i sataniske kræfters bombardement, har været en inspiration for tusinder af mennesker i USA, Latinamerika og Europa. Vi aflægger en højtidelig ed om, at vi vil kæmpe for udvidelsen af den Nye Silkevej til genopbygningen af Yemen, således, at de mange myrdede mænds, kvinders og børns liv vil blive æret i en renæssance i Yemen, der ligeledes vil genopbygge de smukke, gamle byer og disses arkitektur. Yemen må og vil blive en perle blandt Sydvestasiens nationer, og i verden, meget snart!

Final  Declaration of the International Conference to Support of Yemeni People

Report by Ulf Sandmark.

Over the span of two days tens of scholars, academics, experts, journalists and activists met to declare their support for and solidarity with the Yemeni people who are facing cruel war by the evil Saudi-led coalition. Held at the Pullman Hotel, in St Pancras, London, more than 150 of these concerned people dealt with the war whose bloody chapters continue to unfold with no one from the "Free World" venturing to call for a ceasefire. These people came from UK, US, Canada, France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Lebanon, Iraq, Bahrain, Egypt, Sudan, Kuwait, Iran, Malaysia and India to express in one voice their demand to stop the blood-letting, attend the wounded and fee the starving among the inhabitants of that country with its historic civilisation. They met for noble causes, ignoring political calculations or stands based on racial, religious or sectarian prejudice. They raised the banner of Peace, Justice, Love and Fraternity and  shouted in one voice: Stop the War on Yemen".

Over the two days, Saturday and Sunday 20th and 21st August 2016, the sessions of the "International Conference to support he Yemeni People" were held to discuss various issues related to the war; political background and consequences. The Saudi policies towards Yemen, past and present, its regional ambitions, and the ideology it seeks to spread in the world were debated. The religious dimensions of the Saudi policy towards Yemen were also dealt with especially Riyadh's insistence on spreading Wahhabism which is linked worldwide to extremism, exclusion and terrorism. The participants came from far afield to clear their conscience after they realised the direct complicity of several Western countries, especially the United States and the United Kingdom in the war which has now lasted over 17 months. It has led to the killing of more than 13 thousand Yemenis, mostly civilians and including over 3000 children. They have seen the comprehensive destruction which turned Yemen into rubble due to the persistent bombing by the F16s and Typhoon aircrafts. They shed light on the destruction of the human and Islamic heritage in Yemen and the implication for the history of mankind. The Sheba civilisation has been destroyed as well as the Ma'rib dam. This destruction is in line with the Wahhabi doctrines which have deep enmity to civilizational heritage, Islamic or otherwise. Their hearts were throbbing with anger as they saw images of destruction of the specific Yemeni architecture. They also dealt with the land, sea and air blockade imposed on Yemen and how the country is being throttled by the Saudi forces supported by American and British fleets in the Arabian the Red seas. They called for the immediate lifting of this blockade which is another form of war crimes. The international stands were reviewed by the participants who were horrified to remember how the United Nations was forced to remove Saudi Arabia from the list of countries that violate the rights of the children in Yemen. They also expressed outrage at the deafening silence that is preventing Western governments from calling for a ceasefire to spare the lives of Yemenis. They considered that allowing Saudi Arabia to continue its aggression on Yemen is dangerous hypocrisy and serious violation of the "war on terror". It is no longer secret to link this international terrorism as presented by AlQa'ida and ISIS to the sources of extremism, exclusion and terrorism enshrined the Wahhabi ideology which is promoted by Saudi schools and universities and supported with the petro-dollars. 

After two days of extensive discussion the participants presented the following recommendations:

1-      Ceasefire has become an immediate need that cannot be delayed any longer. The world must not hesitate to raise its voice and call on the United Nations Security Council to pass a resolution to impose a ceasefire and stop the illegal aggression on Yemen. Failing to do this is tantamount to complicity in the cruel war and could be considered participation in war crimes.

2-       The participants call specifically on the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union to break the deafening silence and call for the ceasefire. They are also required to impose an immediate arms embargo on Saudi Arabia and other countries participating actively in killing the Yemeni people.

3-      The participants urge the World community to respect the right of the Yemeni for self-determination and to choose their own political system through the adoption of the known democratic means. As they inaugurated their conference the participants saw for themselves the millions of Yemenis marching in the streets of Sanaa in support of the newly-formed Political Council. Their choice must be respected.

4-      The files of destruction caused by the Saudi-led aggression were reviewed with bitterness at its cruelty and ferocity, especially in its huge human losses, the killing of children and women and the obliteration of the Yemen civilization. The scenes brought back to mind the devastation of the Second World War. An immediate ceasefire is thus necessary to spare the Yemenis further losses.

5-      The blockade on Yemen's sea, land and air ports must be lifted immediately. Relief convoys must be allowed to reach the victims of war and famine which are in millions according to UN figures. More than half the Yemenis are in a state starvation and many will perish as a result. Diseases have spread due to the lack of medical care resulting from the blockade.

6-      The participants reviewed the Saudi policy of targeting civilian sites like schools, hospitals, factories and mosques. They called on the UNESCO to break its silence, condemn the Saudi aggression and call for ceasefire. They hailed the efforts of the human rights bodies especially those that have produced reports confirming the war crimes by the Saudis. Particular appreciation was made to the efforts of Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

7-      The guests affirmed their rejection of extremism, exclusion and terrorism, pointing to the links between those phenomena and the aggression on Yemen. They pointed specifically to the spread of Al Qa'ida in half the land of Yemen under the control of the Saudi-led coalition. This needs special attention from the World community due to its negative impact on international peace and security.

8-      The participants urged the media, those active in the social networks and international NGOs to undertake campaigns to inform the public and break the news blackout imposed on Yemen and the destructive Saudi-led aggression. They expressed their unease about the indifference towards the bloodshed in Yemen. This aggression is unique; millions are spent only to keep it out of the television screens. That, in itself, is a war on the truth.

9-      The Conference called for the creation of a special international commission to investigate the extensive war crimes committed in Yemen and confirmed by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and UN's experts. They also called for the creation of the "Yemen War Crimes Tribunal" to take care of any such crimes.

10-   Finally, the participants expressed appreciation of the stands of the countries that have helped the Yemeni people or worked to facilitate a ceasefire, especially the Sultanate of Oman, the State of Kuwait and the Islamic Republic of Iran. They expressed gratefulness to the media outlets that covered the war and highlighted the plight of the Yemeni people. They also thanked the management of the Pullman Hotel, that have provided excellent services to the delegates.

RADIO SCHILLER den 21. august 2016:
Den nye Silkevejsalliance er på vej til at sejre

Med formand Tom Gillesberg




Nutiden har ingen præcedens

18. august 2016 (Leder) – Den nutidige historiske periode er fuldstændig ny i sine karakteristika; den kan ikke sammenlignes med noget andet i menneskehedens hidtidige historie. Af denne grund er det kun nogle få personer, der har været i stand til, i deres intellekt, at frembringe et begreb om, hvad karakteristika er for denne epoke, der intet fortilfælde har: personer som Albert Einstein, Krafft Ehricke og Lyndon og Helga LaRouche. Fordi det store flertal af almindelige dødelige mennesker ikke i deres erfaringsmateriale har noget sammenligneligt, og intet, som de har hørt eller læst om, har de ingen kriterier, ud fra hvilke de kan bedømme eller forstå det; de er på herrens mark. Af denne grund kan grupper, bestående af så få personer som i Lyndon LaRouches Manhattan-projekt, få en afgørende indflydelse netop på dette tidspunkt. Alene de kan se vejen frem, om end denne vej undertiden kan synes utydelig, og de må famle sig frem. De øvrige går i blinde, eller, som Helga Zepp-LaRouche ofte siger, »har ikke den fjerneste idé«.

I 2018 vil en kinesisk mission nå Månens bagside – under forudsætning af, at det inden da lykkes os at besejre Det britiske Imperiums kaosmagter. Denne mission vil blive en del af et helt, generelt program for at opdage og udforske de endnu ikke virkeliggjorte implikationer af Einsteins fundamentale opdagelser, som Lyndon LaRouche har påpeget. Og, som rumforskningsgeniet Krafft Ehricke – sammen med LaRouche – forudså, så vil den aktuelle energigennemstrømningstæthed, der for tiden står til menneskehedens disposition, være en forløber for fusionskraft, og herfra føre til stof-antistof-reaktioner, og herfra atter videre frem til niveauer, som vi i dag ikke engang kan give et navn.

Under forudsætning af, at vi overvinder de aktuelle forhindringer, som repræsenteres af Obama og det Britiske Imperium, så er vi i færd med at glide ind i det, Helga Zepp-LaRouche har kaldt »en æra, i hvilken vi bliver ægte menneskelige«.

På lignende måde er det, man måske kunne have kaldt det »system af alliancer«, der nu spænder over og gennemkrydser Eurasien og breder sig ud herfra, i realiteten slet ikke et »system af alliancer« i den betydning, vi har kendt til fra fortiden. Det er i realiteten snarere en projektion tilbage i tiden og ind i nutiden, fra det fremtidige univers, der inkorporerer de fremtidige opdagelser, der bringes tilbage fra Månens bagside. Putin har, sammen med Kina, inkorporeret principperne fra Den Westfalske Fred, men de er gået langt, langt videre end det. Begynd blot med den ekstraordinære relation, der er opnået mellem Rusland og Kina. Er man klar over, at vi taler om nationer, der så sent som i 1969 udkæmpede en syv måneder lang, ikke-erklæret krig over Ussuri-floden? Nu har de ikke alene regelmæssige topmøder mellem præsidenterne, og regelmæssige topmøder mellem premierministrene; det er det mindste af det. Der er ikke mindre end tretten mellemregerings-kommissioner, der hele tiden er i kontinuerlig kontakt med hinanden. Alle de mange meningsforskelle og uoverensstemmelser – og der er mange – bliver kontinuerligt løst på et både bredt og dybt plan i begge regeringer.

»Og vi finder altid frem til løsninger«, føjede Putin til denne beskrivelse.

Processen med at fuldbyrde denne ekstraordinære relation har været genstand for en dybtgående undersøgelse af Kinas dr. Ren Lin, der talte på Schiller Instituttets konference i Berlin i juni måned, og af mange andre kinesiske og russiske, akademiske lærde.

Fuldbyrdelsen af en sådan relation udgør hjertet af BRIKS-processen og udviklingen af Den nye Silkevej. Det var kernen i Putins forgænger, nu afdøde russiske premierminister Jevgenij Primakovs idé om Den russisk-indisk-kinesiske Strategiske Trekant. Skabelsen heraf går tilbage til ikke alene Lyndon og Helga LaRouches idé om Den produktive Trekant og Den eurasiske Landbro, men endnu længere tilbage, til LaRouches Strategiske Forsvarsinitiativ[1], der havde en formativ indflydelse på Rusland til trods for, at Ruslands daværende leder, Juri Andropov, havde afvist initiativet på vegne af sine britiske herrer.

Dette nye system med fremtidens relationer mellem nationalstater, der går ud over nationalstatsbegrebet, som LaRouche længe har forudsagt, går med syvmileskridt hastigt frem hen over hele det eurasiske kontinent og mere generelt på et tidspunkt, hvor vi nærmer os det Østlige Økonomiske Forum i Vladivostok den 2. – 3. september, FN’s Generalforsamling, der begynder den 13. september, og BRIKS-topmødet i Goa, Indien, den 15. – 16. oktober.

[2] Den specielle relativitetsteori er en fysisk teori, publiceret af Albert Einstein. Den erstattede den Newtonske opfattelse af tid og rum ved at gøre brug af det faktum, at lystes hastighed er konstant (Teorien kaldes desuden for ’speciel’, fordi den er et specialtilfælde af den mere generelle relativitetsteori; således ses der bort fra tyngdekraften). Ti år senere publicerede Einstein den generelle relativitetsteori, som medinddrager tyngdekraften. (-red.)

 




Med nedsmeltningen af derivater
under anmarch, må Vesten slutte sig
til Putins verden

16. august 2016 (Leder) – Den Internationale Betalingsbank (BIS) har forberedt et dokument til det forestående G20-topmøde for statsoverhoveder i Kina, med en advarsel om, at en nedsmeltning af derivatmarkedet kunne ske når som helst, og at clearinghouse-systemet (CHIPS) er totalt uforberedt til at håndtere et sådant chok. Husk på, at Deutsche Bank har den største eksponering til derivater af alle banker i verden, og den har modparts-kontrakter med næsten alle TBTF-banker i USA, Europa og Japan – og Deutsche bank er korrekt blevet beskrevet som en »dead bank walking« (en ’bank på dødsgangen’). De bedste estimater lyder, at den globale derivathandel stadig ligger på et godt stykke over en billiard dollar, selv efter tab i år, der allerede har hobet sig op.

På dette sene tidspunkt er der kun én mulighed tilbage for det gennemført bankerotte transatlantiske system: Genindfør Glass-Steagall, afskriv alle derivatkontrakterne, gå tilbage til et fastkurssystem à la Bretton Woods, og lancer en massiv anlægsinvestering i projekter, der understøtter reel produktivitet gennem statslige bankmetoder i traditionen efter Hamilton, inklusive en forceret indsats for at opnå fusionskraft. Dette er hjertet i Lyndon LaRouches Fire Kardinallove.

Det betyder, med hensyn til den virkelige verden, at Vesten må opgive det afdøde, britiske system og endelig tilslutte sig det nye, eurasisk-centrerede system, der hastigt er ved at manifestere sig, under Ruslands præsident Vladimir Putins overordnede lederskab og gennem virkeliggørelsen af Kinas program for ’Ét bælte, én vej’ (OBOR). I mandags startede det første kølegodstog ud fra den kinesiske havn Dailan, med destination Moskva, en rejse på 8.600 kilometer, som vil blive klaret på henved ti dage. Dette er den seneste gren af OBOR og sætter fokus på samarbejdet mellem Rusland og Kina.

Under diskussioner med europæiske kolleger den 15. august erklærede Lyndon LaRouche, at vi befinder os på randen af en stor sejr for menneskeheden. De eurasiske nationer, forklarede han, er i færd med at etablere en gruppering, centreret omkring ledende nationer i det asiatiske Stillehavsområde, nationer, som er i voldsom vækst, i skarp kontrast til andre områder af verden, der er syge og døende rent økonomisk. Sydamerika er blevet overtaget af voldtægtsforbrydere, Frankrig er en fiasko, Spanien er en katastrofe. Fokus må være på de ledende nationer, som har taget initiativet i denne udviklingsproces. Putin, fortsatte LaRouche, er trådt frem som en drivkraft i denne eurasiske alliance. Der er kræfter, der er i bevægelse internt i USA, især i Manhattan, og som kan tilslutte sig indsatsen under anførsel af Eurasien for at knuse det britiske system, der har været menneskehedens fjende i de forgangne århundreder. Tyskland må, hvis det ønsker at overleve, tilslutte sig denne eurasiske udvikling, hvilket betyder at dumpe enhver politik associeret med Merkel og Schäuble.

Den russiske præsident Putin har, i løbet af de seneste år, spillet en afgørende rolle i organiseringen af en magt, hovedsageligt bestående af nationer centreret i Eurasien, og som er i færd med at få karakter af en militærmagt, der kan ændre alt og kan vinde krigen for fred.

I de kommende uger vil denne fremvoksende alliance være i centrum for en række historiske møder: Det Østlige Økonomiske Forum i Vladivostok, Rusland; G20-mødet for statsoverhoveder i Kina; Kina-ASEAN-mødet for statsoverhoveder i Laos; FN’s Generalforsamling i New York City; og BRIKS-mødet for statsoverhoveder i Indien. Denne aktivitetstæthed fra nu og frem til midten af oktober byder på en enestående mulighed for, at dette nye, fremvoksende, globale lederskab kan fastlægge historiens kurs og gøre en ende på det bankerotte, britiske system.
