Ramasimong Phillip Tsokolibane
You Must Help Make the Decision:
It Will Either Be Africa’s Time to Die,
Or To Lead Humanity into a Bright Future
Mr. Tsokolibane is the Leader of LaRouche South Africa. He presented this greeting to the Schiller Institute International Conference, on June 27, 2020, “Will Humanity Prosper, or Perish? The Future Demands a Four-Power Summit Now,” on Panel 1: “Instead of Geopolitics: The Principles of Statecraft.”
From the Republic of South Africa, I offer my greeting to those of you gathered virtually around the globe for this important conference. My name is Ramasimong Phillip Tsokolibane, and it is my great honor to lead the LaRouche movement in South Africa.
The matters upon which you are deliberating will determine whether or not mankind survives our turbulent times. Around the globe, people are in the streets, rising up to protest the intolerable injustice of the dying neocolonial order that has enslaved all of us. It is a deadly monetarist order that values pieces of speculative financial paper above human life.
The collapse of this global British financial empire is certain. What will replace it, is not. What must be brought into being is a new world economic order based on the unleashing of the greatest power in the universe, the power of human creativity, to build on this planet a world of hope, peace and prosperity, where we will be truly, finally, free.
We shall extend our dominion beyond Earth into the vast expanse of the universe beyond. This was the mighty dream of the great Lyndon LaRouche, who taught us that the final conjunctural crisis of the old, evil British Empire was coming, and that we must, as revolutionaries, be prepared to seize this moment to shepherd the great change for the good.
As we deliberate today, we must remember the teachings of Mr. LaRouche. It is now truly his time, a time in which troubles can be turned into opportunity. To do otherwise, would be to allow those evil people who lorded over us, as the masters of the old Empire, to continue their rule in an even more brutish and deadly form, a global fascist order, whose policy intention it is, to kill more than three-quarters of all people on earth—that is, if they don’t stumble into a general thermonuclear war that kills all of us.
As the COVID-19 virus slashes its deadly path across my continent—which will leave tens of millions dead in its wake, if not more—we see the results of the Brutish Empire policy of enforced underdevelopment. Combined with equally deadly famine, and attempts to stir up wars here and around the globe, we can count more millions murdered through the Empire’s policy.
It does not have to be this way!
LaRouche’s policies and programs for development and jobs point the way to the future. For Africa, it’s “Go with LaRouche, or die with the old neo-colonial empire.”
Africa wants to live, and we have, with some help, the means to survive and prosper. My country—the only full-set economy on the continent—can help produce both the machinery and the machine tools required for the industrialization of Africa. We can help train the hundreds of millions of new productive workers that will be needed.
We have one of the most advanced nuclear energy industries on the globe, which is under constant attack from London. It is our future, and the future of billions of Africans to come, that this conference is discussing.
Best wishes for the success of your deliberations!
