Miracles, With Our Right Arm
Sept. 28, 2021 (EIRNS)—The LaRouche Organization’s just-released pamphlet, “The Coming U.S. Economic Miracle on the New Silk Road,” is an outstanding summary of what can and must be done to reverse America’s induced self-destruction at the hands of the British intelligence. Its 14 distinct sections, including the Introduction, can be studied consecutively; such study could be supported by short documentary videos prepared in consultation with its authors. Any individual or group, no matter what age or level of education, that takes the time to work through the pamphlet’s contents over, for example, the next three months, especially in conjunction with campaigning for the Afghanistan and Haiti reconstruction and “world health platform” initiative proposed by Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche, will reverse the collapse of our otherwise-doomed trans-Atlantic culture.
Those who attempt to understand the significance of the LaRouche “Triple Curve/Typical Collapse Function” hyperbolic function, will come to recognize that a worldwide, sudden drop in human longevity as the world has experienced in the past 20 months (with the United States male workforce losing more than two years), cannot be explained through mere linear causation—“the coronavirus pandemic did it,” for example. Think of the recent, ever-changing pandemic as more of a “crystallization process” which reveals, even more than triggers, an underlying and perhaps previously unrecognized metastatic process, that must first be correctly diagnosed to be aggressively treated, and globally, throughout the entire organism. What we are now living through is a cumulative, overlapping set of processes of trans-Atlantic dissolution whose arc was determined even well before August 15, 1971 when Nixon’s Treasury took the U.S. dollar off the gold-reserve standard. It could have been willfully reversed by Lyndon LaRouche’s ideas and proposals. That did not happen.
“Tristes presentimientos de lo que ha de acontecer”—“Sad foreboding of what is going to happen”—so reads the caption on the first engraving of Francisco Goya’s 82-plate examination of Disasters of War. Goya’s whole work reflects upon the “inevitable” murderous consequences that were about to befall a self-sabotaged 1808 Spain at the hands of Napoleon, who was himself charged, as the puppet of British/Venetian financial interests, with the destruction of France and continental Europe. Today’s sad foreboding of an “inevitable” war with China, by a United States similarly deployed to destroy itself is, on the contrary, directly attacked and refuted in the title, contents, and the intent of “The Coming U.S. Economic Miracle on the New Silk Road.” There is neither a reason, nor an excuse, for accepting the unacceptable. In some ways, as in 1972, then with our “Blueprint for Extinction” pamphlet, The LaRouche Organization is now, on the question of development or depopulation, drawing a line of sanity in the sand.
The very possibility for a World Land-Bridge solution to our otherwise inevitable mass destruction, including through thermonuclear war, is primarily the result of another “long wave” process much different from that of August 15, 1971. It was the opening up, in the aftermath of the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989, of a Platonic form of strategic dialogue, notably first with Russia, but also with China, India, and many other nations. This was begun by Helga Zepp-LaRouche and Lyndon LaRouche, and this organization, in 1989-91 as the European Productive Triangle/Eurasian Land-Bridge/New Silk Road. Three decades-plus later, when the China State Council Information Office announces the release of a paper entitled “China’s Epic Journey from Poverty to Prosperity,” we can state, with no exaggeration, that we played a central role in participating from the beginning, through that dialogue, in demonstrating that billions of people can, in principle, be lifted out of low life-expectancy, malnutrition, illiteracy, and despondency. We have acted, not through the still-subjugated power of the United States, but rather through the power of the self-conscious adoption, by China, of Alexander Hamilton’s and Abraham Lincoln’s American System with Chinese characteristics to, in fact, do what President John F. Kennedy tasked Americans, and the world, to do, as our pamphlet quotes him in the Introduction—to “struggle against the common enemies of mankind: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself,” and win. This is a battle for no one nation, but all; for no one culture, but all; for no one individual, but all.
In evaluating the just-concluded German federal elections, Helga Zepp-LaRouche pointed out about “the 16 years of stagnation which went along with [Angela] Merkel, who was very efficient in breeding mediocrity. And therefore the present crop of politicians which you saw in these debates, was really the most mediocre crowd you had ever seen in German politics, and that’s just not fit to deal with the crises which will come for sure, and in part are already here.” She presented a detailed “breakdown of the breakdown,” and stated that “the outcome, whatever it will be, is for sure a turn in the direction of more instability and stupidity.” It was notable, Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche stated, that any international matter—Afghanistan, Haiti, China, even the pandemic—in any real way, was prohibited from discussion, enforced by the corrupted “debate moderators.”
As a result, the Lilliputians that will compose a not-so-grand-coalition there, whatever may be its ultimate configuration, will most likely still advocate the closing this year of three of the country’s remaining six nuclear power plants. (Of Germany’s original 17 nuclear plants, 11 have been rendered permanently inoperable.) “Tristes presentimientos de lo que...”
But it isn’t true. Stupidity is not inevitable. Depraved indifference is not a condition, but a choice. Helga concluded by saying, “We should continue with our New Paradigm campaigns...a total paradigm shift has to be found with respect to Haiti and Afghanistan, This should really be our international strategic orientation.” That is the orientation, which, if stuck to, can truly create The Coming U.S. Economic Miracle on the New Silk Road.
