Someone Doesn’t Want You To Know About the Schiller Institute

Nov. 10—A YouTube video from ten months ago is being used to censor the Schiller Institute just days before our November 13-14 international conference! But the conference is not canceled.

Early in the morning of Wednesday, November 10, the Schiller Institute was informed by YouTube, that after having “reviewed your content,” YouTube concluded that “unfortunately, we think it violates our Community Guidelines.” The Schiller Institute has therefore been banned from YouTube for one week, and thus cannot use that platform to stream our international conference during the Nov. 13-14 weekend.

The banned event video, a live webcast titled, “A More Perfect Union through the Coincidence of Opposites: MLK and the American Presidency,” was posted on January 18, 2021, ten months ago, but has only now been taken down.

The banned video is a three-hour discussion among participants of varying political persuasions about issues surrounding American elections, decisions by “big tech” about which voices to allow and which to suppress, and the non-violent creation of a more perfect union. Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s speech to that conference was titled, “Beauty Over Violence: Beethoven, Schiller, and the Idea of the Sublime.” Video excerpts from civil rights leaders were presented in a segment called “Love Conquers Hate: A Schiller Institute 1995 Conference on Creative, Non-Violent Direct Action.”

Absurdly, YouTube claims that the Schiller Institute event violates its policy on “harassment and cyberbullying,” defined as “content glorifying or inciting acts of violence.” This is preposterous.

Although the video is gone, you can read EIR’s report on the event here.

The Schiller Institute is appealing YouTube’s decision and will be arranging alternative streaming arrangements for its November 13-14 event.

Fight back against censorship by circulating the link to the Nov. 13-14 two-day conference,
