EIR LEAD EDITORIAL FOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 2021
‘A Philosophy for Victory’
Jan. 7 , 2021 (EIRNS)—“So, today, we are assembled here, under the auspices of the written word,” Lyndon LaRouche wrote on February 11, 2001, “to consider, not whether the continued existence of the United States is still possible; the question is, whether it is possible that the United States might choose the available road to survival. Classical philosophy, properly defined, is the only branch of science in which possible solutions to such a crisis in decision-making can be rationally discussed.”
LaRouche continued in “A Philosophy for Victory: Can We Change the Universe?”: “At a time when all influential policy-shapers who are not philosophical voluntarists, will tend to behave as bunglers, the following question is posed: by means of what voluntarist intervention, by the rest among us, can the necessary change in direction be brought into play?”
LaRouche’s charge of two decades ago to distinctively human voluntarist intervention, remains the key to addressing the dramatic breakdown crisis which led to the shocking events of Jan. 6, 2021 in Washington, D.C. In a report to associates of The LaRouche Organization midday Jan. 7, EIR’s Dennis Small summarized the situation, stressing the following included points:
Let me start by reading the statement just issued by Chuck Schumer, the new Senate Majority Leader, after the elections in Georgia: “What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by the president. This president should not hold office one day longer. The quickest and most effective way—it can be done today—to remove this president from office would be for the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th Amendment. If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress should reconvene to impeach the president.”
So that’s a pretty clear statement of intent coming from Chuck Schumer, the voice of Wall Street, the same Chuck Schumer who famously stated to Rachel Maddow at MSNBC on Jan. 3, 2017: “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.” This is the same Chuck Schumer whom LaRouche leader Diane Sare is running against as an independent candidate for Senate, a campaign which provides a tremendous opportunity for a very sharp cutting edge on our organizing activity.
There’s more and more evidence to confirm that the whole thing on Jan. 6 at the Capitol was a complete provocation and a setup. This is an attempted British coup d’état which is in process right now. It is like the Reichstag Fire which brought in the Nazis, or like 9/11. Recall that the actual significance of 9/11, as Lyndon LaRouche discussed at the time, was to carry out a Nazi coup d’état inside the United States through the Patriot Act and similar measures. It was a standard Tavistockian shock operation to herd the population into accepting things that include its own demise.
It’s quite clear that what happened at the Capitol included both orchestrated provocations, as well as a security-stripping operation, just as in the case of 9/11. The other key component of this is that President Donald Trump was pushed and manipulated and driven in the direction of what the British considered would be a predictable reaction on his part, and they led him into a gigantic bear trap. Especially since the sharp policy swing by Trump around March of this year, in particular on the China question, Trump left himself wide open to this British trap—not so much by what he did, but by what he didn’t do to kick over the British chessboard in the ways Lyndon LaRouche specified: join with China and Russia to put the entire trans-Atlantic financial system through bankruptcy reorganization.
During the course of the breach of the Capitol, Trump sent out a tweet urging his supporters to depart peacefully. And then at about 4 a.m. on Jan. 7 he sent out another tweet stating that “there will be an orderly transition on January 20th.”
On the evening of Jan. 7, President Trump released a short video which categorically stated: “Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness, and mayhem.... The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy. To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction: You do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law: You will pay.” This was an urgently necessary step to distance himself from what occurred, precisely to be able to deactivate and defuse what is the attempt to not only destroy him and his Presidency, but everything that has been set in motion around Trump.
So what is underway now is a larger-scale equivalent of the Patriot Act that was set in motion after 9/11, which included top-down monitoring, espionage, and so forth by the so-called “deep state,” i.e. by British intelligence. Just look at what they’re doing to Trump censoring him on Twitter, Facebook and so on. But it’s across the board: it’s not only the Trump crowd. It’s Assange; it’s Snowden, it’s what’s happened with Bernie Sanders supporters, and with any voice of opposition. If this plot succeeds, any criticism will be considered the equivalent of insurrection, and will be silenced.
What’s being targetted here is not simply the U.S. Presidency, not simply the U.S. Constitution. It is an entire paradigm shift to bring the world into lockstep with the British plan around the economy, around their Global Green Reset, around the bailout of their bankrupt financial system, in which the Biden presidency is an instrumental part. This is what former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney means when he states that the key to a successful transition to a global digital currency is “global governance”— in other words, a top-down political dictatorship to impose the kind of financial and economic dictatorship of a Green genocidal agenda, which can only be implemented if such a political dictatorship is actually put in place.
In conclusion, what’s in play here is a global strategic paradigm shift that we in the LaRouche organization all along warned that the British were intent on imposing. The only successful way of stopping that, is by attacking it on its exposed flanks. President Trump has to not only denounce what happened at the Capitol, but also expose who is behind it and why, and then embark, in the most rapid and forceful way, on the very policies which the British are most terrorized of: a U.S.-China-Russia alliance to replace today’s bankrupt financial order with a new paradigm of development. Nothing other than such voluntarist action can succeed, at this late stage of the game.
When the Malvinas War broke out in 1982, Lyndon LaRouche said to the Argentine government and to people in the Reagan Administration and elsewhere: If you want to defeat the British in their war of aggression in the South Atlantic, the only way to do it is “drop the debt bomb.” In other words, blow them out of the water on their vulnerable point: their bankrupt financial system. And that is how we have to think today, and how we have to mobilize the population and political leaders to think and act as well.
