Behind the Green New Deal: Hjalmar Schacht’s Fascist Malthusianism
July 29, 2021 (EIRNS)—Helga Zepp-LaRouche, Founder and President of the Schiller Institute, was asked today in her weekly strategic webcast “Behind the Green New Deal: Hjalmar Schacht,” to address the hysteria regarding the fake-science of manmade climate change. With slight editing, here is her response:
“As we have said many times, man-made climate change is a hoax. What is really behind it is that the financial system of the trans-Atlantic sector is completely bankrupt and about to go into a hyperinflationary blow-out. So, the central banks, headed by Mark Carney—former head of the Bank of England—and other central bankers are trying to ‘shift the trillions,’ as they say, by keeping the bubble going just another round, by going essentially into the same policy as [Hitler’s Reichsbank President and Finance Minister] Hjalmar Schacht did 80 years ago. By trying to get complete control by the central banks over the entire money-issuing system, and preventing banks from giving credit for real production, by shifting the trillions into a new bubble. Namely, Green technology, alternative energy resources, going out of nuclear, going out of fossil fuels. Now the IPCC is supposed to come out with their final preparatory report on Aug. 9 for the Glasgow COP26 meeting. What has been said ahead of time is that the report will cause complete alarm. This was echoed by another statement by the 11,000 so-called ‘scientists’ who say that drastic cuts have to occur in human activity, because the climate change is so dramatic—and, they also admit for the first time, this is supposed to lead to a declining population.
“Now, that’s what we have been saying the whole time! The real aim of this is that the Malthusians, who happen to sit in the City of London and Wall Street, want to cut the population. They want to go for a massive population reduction. This is the danger of a new fascism, and people should not be confused about that. Because it’s not true that there is a consensus among scientists that climate change is due to anthropogenic causes. There has always been climate change; you always go from ice ages to warm weather periods. This has been going on for millions of years. But this present scare is designed to impose, really, a global fascist dictatorship of the central banks. It is fascism, and if this is not opposed, it will lead to social chaos, because all these policies will lead to dramatic price increases in energy, in food production. You will collapse the real economy; it can only lead to a complete catastrophe. Then, naturally, the weak ones, the poor people of the world, of the developing countries, will be the victims.
“You already see right now the schemes which are being made. For example, Mark Carney [now the United Nations Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance], who said there has to be a deal between the banks and the developing countries whereby they get money directly for making an agreement that they will not develop. If you look at the world right now, we are in the middle of a pandemic; we are in a world famine of biblical dimensions, as Beasley from the UN World Food Program keeps stressing. Then these people want to cut human activity, which in the consequence would mean no development in the developing countries; cutting back the living standard dramatically in the so-called advanced sector.
“And people have to wake up! The fact that we had a flood in Germany was due not to climate change: This is a complete lie! This was due to the fact that existing programs of infrastructure investments were not done because [Bundestag President] Wolfgang Schäuble wants to insist on his “black zero” balanced budget. In one of these rivers which were flooded, the Greenies managed to remove certain dams in order to allow the fish to swim more easily up and down the river. But the result of it was that there was no way to regulate this enormous rainfall, so the Green policy and the ‘black zero’ policy, non-investment in infrastructure, was responsible for this flood.
“So, I can only warn people that this is not settled at all. This is a gigantic fraud which is supposed to be imposed upon the population.”
