We Can Defeat Fascism Again!

[PDF version of this editorial]

On May 8, in Moscow, the Presidents of Russia and China led a huge international celebration of the 65th anniversary of the victory over Hitler's fascism. While U.S. soldiers participated in the parade, the abstention of the U.S. President was a glaring one. Worse was the fact that President Obama was actually addressing the American people on that day, with an encomium to the Hitler health policy which he has just rammed through.

Ironical as well, was the fact that, on the very same weekend, the "leaders" of Western Europe and the United States were devising new fascist austerity schemes for Europe, in the name of bailing out the bankrupt global monetarist system which has ruled the world since world War II.

Yet, one can say, without exaggeration, that the world stands at the brink of reconstituting a new anti-fascist alliance, this time organized to crush the intellectual author of the Hitler regime and today's fascist austerity drive: the British Empire. Such an alliance would be in the form of the Four Power agreement proposed by Lyndon LaRouche, and comprised of the United States, Russia, China, and India. A treaty agreement among those four nations, establishing a fixed-exchange-rate system and launching long-term great infrastructure projects for global development, would provide the basis for doing what Franklin Roosevelt—the author of victory, who died before Hitler was defeated—had planned to do, in order to wipe out empires, and establish the basis for lasting peace.

How can one be so optimistic? The answer lies in the dynamic now sweeping the world, especially in the United States.

As Lyndon LaRouche developed at length in his May 8 webcast, the mass strike process which erupted in the United States in 2009, has now reached a new phase, where certain members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, have brooked their party leaderships, and stepped forward to present a patriotic solution to the devastating threat now facing the population. In stark contrast to the rest of the Congress, Senators John McCain, Maria Cantwell, and Russ Feingold, among others, have decided to demand the re-implementation of FDR's Glass-Steagall Law, as a line of defense of the people of the United States, against the depradations of Wall Street, and a first step toward restarting the economy according to the principles established in the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution.

Such leadership inside the institutions of government has been precisely what has been missing over the last months, to bring about a victory over British puppet Obama's fascist program. As the American people got more and more enraged, one so-called leading opponent of Obama's Hitler health program, for example, capitulated to bribery or threats. While the LaRouche movement escalated its efforts, and gained support, it still stood outside the institutions of government, which can act decisively.

Victory, of course, is not assured, but, as LaRouche pointed out, popular support for the Glass-Steagall measure is massive. If the measure is forced onto the floor, Obama will be forced to capitulate, or to take measures against the bill that will hasten his own political demise. If the measure is passed, it creates the conditions for extending a lifeline to Europe, to defend itself from the British financial yoke as well.

Once we force through Glass-Steagall in the U.S. we also create the conditions for a global alliance with Russia, China, and India—the new anti-fascist alliance which will save us from Hell.
