PANEL 1—Sat. April 15, 9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. ET

The Growing Danger of World War III Underlines the
Necessity for a New Security Architecture

There is growing, extreme concern that the present geopolitical confrontation between the U.S., the U.K. and NATO on the one side, and Russia and China on the other, could lead to an escalation into a global, possibly nuclear war. This is expressed in a variety of peace initiatives addressed to the Ukraine war, from China’s Xi Jinping, Brazil’s Lula da Silva, Türkiye’s Recep Erdoğan, and Pope Francis. What is required now is to move rapidly beyond geopolitics into a new security and development architecture which takes into account the interests of every country on the planet.

PANEL 2—Sat. April 15, 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. ET

The ‘Global Majority’ and the International Peace Movement
Are Fighting for the Same Goal

The nations of the Global South, recently described accurately as the “Global Majority,” are drawing the line at the further looting of their nations and destruction of their sovereignty by the so-called “Rules-Based Order.” They are committed to putting an end to colonialism once and for all. The emerging peace movement in Europe and the United States, as it puts aside divisive ideologies, is addressing the same underlying problem: that the collapsing trans-Atlantic financial system is the driving force towards war.

PANEL 3—Sun. April 16, 9:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. ET

End the Casino Economy Before It’s Too Late

The systemic collapse of the trans-Atlantic financial system is destroying the physical economy of entire nations, and driving the world towards war. There is a renewed discussion about the need for a Glass-Steagall bankruptcy reorganization of the international financial system in order to end the casino economy, as well as the need for Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws. The world and every nation in it must move back to physical economy instead of monetarist values. A key example of that is the farm sector, which needs to be protected and expanded to meet the food requirements of the world’s population. A manifesto of farmers from around the world is in preparation, and will be discussed during this panel.

PANEL 4—Sun. April 16, 12:30 p.m.-3:00 p.m. ET

The Necessary Philosophical Foundations for the New Paradigm

Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche last November proposed Ten Principles as the basis for bringing about a new international security and development architecture. These include the need to put Man’s physical-economic practice, centered on scientific and cultural creativity, in coherence with the laws of the physical universe, and the underlying philosophical issues of the image of Man, including the affirmation that Man is characteristically good, and that all evil is the result of lack of development—and therefore can be eliminated.

CONCERT—Sun. April 16, 4:00 p.m. ET, tickets required

Schiller Institute Chorus: Let Us Have Peace: Handel’s Messiah Oratorio

St. Augustine stated in his book, The City of God, that “the real evils in war are love of violence, revengeful cruelty, fierce and implacable enmity, wild resistance, the lust of power, and such like.” Let us now vanquish the real enemies of mankind: poverty, disease, ignorance, and war itself, and thus bring the “prosperity of peace” to all the nations of the world. The concert will be performed before a live audience in NYC and be streamed live online. It will feature other shorter pieces including spirituals, and J.S. Bach.

Tickets, starting at $5.00, and more information are available here.
