Creating a Climate for Courage
June 12—As the G7 leaders take turns patting each other on the back for having good old times again without Trump causing all manner of discord, and wax lyrical about their no doubt very thoughtful ideas for a green future unencumbered with readily available and efficient power supplies—as this fantasy unfolds, reality can be heard knocking—no, pounding on the door. It makes its entry.
It comes as inflation—growing by the day, and becoming more and more difficult to ignore despite the changing of metrics being used to hide it. Financial markets, commodities, housing, food, all sectors of the economy are seeing dizzying price increases, many blamed entirely on COVID while being driven by a hyperinflationary policy of money-printing and expansion of the central banks’ balance sheets.
It comes as deaths and misery—created by unilateral sanctions that crush livelihoods, devastate economies, prevent development, and deny health care, including vaccines.
It comes as war—unnecessary, humanity-ending war used as a threat against any powers that would seek to challenge Anglo-American hegemony. Its principal targets, Russia and China, well recognize the increasing depths of the danger.
It comes as lies—as the absurd concoctions presented as authoritative truth by the approved media staffed by, controlled by, and promoted by the City of London-Wall Street-Washington slime-mold that must hide both the potential of the emerging new paradigm and the genocidal intent and outcome of the policies it promotes to maintain its hold. False conclusions are only a part of the technique. Fostering a type of social interaction totally inimical to a Socratic search for truth plays an even larger role, in large part by denying the universality of humanity.
But reality need not be feared!
In fact, its powerful presence allows a quality of communication, of dialogue, possessed by an urgency befitting the time and a heightened openness to discover. It brings with it the work of Lyndon LaRouche, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, and their collaborators, whose work over decades has provided a historical framework for understanding the present world, an economic science for clearing a path forward, and a cultural impulse that allows for profound and impassioned dialogue—the method of the coincidence of opposites.
Learn from that movement:
• On Saturday, June 12, Helga Zepp-LaRouche engaged in a discussion with dozens of young people from around the world, addressing directly the coincidence of opposites as it emerged from the creative mind of Renaissance-creator Nicolaus of Cusa. Her opening presentation is available .
• Looking ahead to June 26-27, the Schiller Institute will host a two-day conference “For the Common Good of All People, Not Rules Benefiting the Few!” Learn more and register and recruit others to register .
