New Fascism Descends on America—World Cooperation, or War, Facing Mankind
Jan. 12 , 2021 (EIRNS)—On Monday, Jan. 11, the Democrats introduced articles of impeachment, declaring that it is an impeachable offense to have challenged the vote fraud in the Nov. 3 election. They intend to vote it up, essentially without debate, on Jan. 13. They also introduced a bill to remove from Congress every Republican who challenged the vote fraud, based on the 14th Amendment, which was designed to prevent Confederate leaders who had fought in the insurrection against the Union from becoming Congressmen. Get it? Challenging vote fraud is the same as waging a four-year bloody war against the Union in support of slavery and free trade. Meanwhile, the Democrats, and many Republicans, and of course the media, cheer on the fact that all major social media have denied access to the President of the United States, essentially silencing the President from his 73 million supporters. The First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech in America, and the Constitution as a whole, are being shredded.
The world is shocked. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador told the world that America is losing its freedom, that a new “Holy Inquisition” is coming into being which is a danger to the entire world. Similar sentiments are coming from every part of the globe.
At the same time, the bankers in the City of London and Wall Street are implementing the Great Reset, the “regime change” of the world financial system (as former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney called it) into a post-industrial enforcement arm of the Green New Deal, denying credit to all fossil fuels, to most industry, and to modern high-technology agriculture. It is a system which can sustain at most 1-2 billion people. Do its sponsors know that? It is their intent. As Prince Philip famously said: “Human population growth is probably the single most serious long-term threat to survival. We’re in for a major disaster if it isn’t curbed—not just for the natural world, but for the human world. The more people there are, the more resources they’ll consume, the more pollution they’ll create, the more fighting they will do. We have no option. If it isn’t controlled voluntarily, it will be controlled involuntarily by an increase in disease, starvation and war.”
Trump’s unacceptable dedication to progress, the oligarchy would like to think, has been crushed, as the Green New Deal is about to take over the United States under the senile Joe Biden. They are taking no chances, however, and have thus ripped up the Constitution in order to silence the President and all who support him.
There is another danger facing these genocidalists, perhaps an even greater threat: China. Not only has China become the first nation in history to eliminate abject poverty, through mass infrastructure development and universal scientific and cultural education, but they are taking that method—once known as the “American System”— to the rest of the world, through the New Silk Road, the Belt and Road Initiative. Nations across the developing sector, and even in Europe, have ridiculed madman Mike Pompeo’s effort to unite the world against China as a threat to “our way of life” and the “rule of law.” The Asian nations united with China last November to create a fair trade system called the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). The EU in December signed a “Comprehensive Agreement on Investment,” to expand mutual trade and investment with China. African and South American nations look to China for the real development aid they have been denied under IMF-World Bank austerity dictates.
The Anglo-American oligarchy is not pleased. With Pompeo as their leading hitman, they are willing to risk war with China, even nuclear war, to crush the Belt and Road. Not only has Pompeo directed the imposition of expansive sanctions on Chinese companies and individuals—sanctions which are doing more damage to American firms than to those in China—but he has now declared war on the “One China” policy, which has been the basis for peace and collaboration over these past 50 years. By lifting all special conditions for U.S. relations with Taiwan, essentially treating Taiwan as an independent nation, rather than honoring the “One Country, Two Systems” policy which has maintained peace and prosperity in the region, Pompeo is threatening one of China’s core interests, its sovereignty. As you will see below, the Chinese will not shy away from the danger of war if their sovereignty is challenged.
One must keep in mind what Bertrand Russell said, which stands, still today, as the ideological foundation of the Empire. To deal with the overpopulation problem, the good Lord said: “War has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full.” Of course, with the advent of nuclear weapons, Lord Russell became more confident that war could kill enough people to solve the problem, advocating that the U.S. launch a nuclear war on Russia before they could build their own bomb.
The resolution to this existential crisis exists. The pandemic has threatened the lives of millions, not only death by the virus, but death by starvation. Never has the world been more in need of international cooperation to meet a crisis facing the entire world. Helga Zepp-LaRouche has initiated such cooperation, based on addressing the desperate health crisis facing all nations, rich and poor, due to the breakdown of public health in the advanced sector over the past decades through “privatization,” and the denial of public health facilities to large parts of Africa and Asia through IMF “conditionalities.” No nation alone can solve this crisis. Rather than war and the new fascism now threatening the United States, we call on President Donald Trump to use his last days in the White House to call Presidents Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin, and other nations of good will, to join forces with the U.S. in a global campaign to build modern health facilities in every nation on Earth. We call on each of you to join Zepp-LaRouche’s “Committee for the Coincidence of Opposites,” to address this health and food crisis as the starting point for a new paradigm for mankind.
