Suit Actions, to Words: “There Is No Faith, Without Works”
Oct. 12, 2021 (EIRNS)—Hamlet:
“Suit the action to the word, the word to the action, with this
special observance, that you o’erstep not the modesty of nature;
for anything so overdone is from the purpose of playing, whose
end, both at the first and now, was and is to hold, as ‘twere, the
mirror up to nature: to show Virtue her own feature, Scorn her own
image, and the very age and body of the time his form and
pressure.”—Act 3, scene 2
Sometimes, it is wise to step back from the particulars of what only appears to be known, to see what is indisputable. Take the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. It has been known, and clearly seen by their deeds, that, at least since 1974, when Robert McNamara’s World Bank first “red-lined” sections of Africa, Asia, and South America—in the days when China was still a “developing nation,” but armed with nuclear weapons—and condemned 1 billion people to what McNamara termed “the Fourth World”—that the loan policies of the IMF and World Bank were not humanitarian, but only a veiled form of neo-colonialism. Lyndon LaRouche’s 1975 International Development Bank alternative, as presented in September 1976 by then-Guyana Foreign Minister, the late Fred Wills, at the UN General Assembly, was the moral opposite of World Bank financial depopulation policy.
Why should there be any surprise, therefore, in the case of Afghanistan, when the IMF, World Bank, and U.S. Treasury not only freeze funds, but the G20 nations all agree, at least up to this point, that there will be no recognition of the present Afghan government, and that money will flow, if at all, only through “cash drops” to “the needy”? That sanctions and “conditionalities” of many different sorts would not only continue, but may very well increase? The proposals of persons like Shah Mehrabi, a member of the Da Afghanistan Bank’s board since 2002, to “provide the Taliban-led government limited access to the country’s reserves or risk economic disaster,” have been ignored. He, and others, and in fact all can see that the Afghanistan “inevitable economic and humanitarian crisis” is being induced, manufactured, staged before the eyes of the world.
To understand this does not require “visualizing the complex domain.” Understanding this merely requires holding up the mirror to the nature of the trans-Atlantic world’s self-doom. When Victoria Nuland showed up in Russia, it was made clear: Don’t try to negotiate for a summit between Putin and Ukraine. While the Anglo-American Indo-Pacific “Orcus Alliance” has asserted that it will “back up Taiwan,” the PLA, as it performed military exercises directly opposite Taiwan’s coast, declared that “If the ‘Taiwan independence’ separatist forces dared to split Taiwan from China in any name and by any means, the People’s Liberation Army will resolutely crush it at all costs.” When military lunkheads like Maj. Gen. Brad Gericke, the U.S. Army’s Director for Strategy, Plans and Policy, fulminate that “I would argue that the land domain is the essential domain.... The point is, that it is Asia that is the prize. We call it the Pacific, but Asia is the prize. And that’s where power, that’s where economic, military, social informational power is going to primarily emanate from over the next century,” apart from the obsolescence of their 19th century geopolitics, they make British intelligence smile at the consummate brainwashing success they have achieved.
The British City of London interests are at this moment, and to their knowledge, causing the United States to destroy itself, and to lose this opportunity to finally crush the historic enemy of Washington, Franklin, Hamilton, Lincoln, and FDR, the British Empire, once and for all. That could only be done if America were strategically united with Russia, and a China that has, together with Russia, perhaps never been as nationally sovereign in history as they are today. For most Americans, though, more than a half-century of economic decay and cultural humiliation has so confused them that they no longer recognize who the enemy is, because they no longer recognize themselves. The mirror must be held up to their nature by recruiting them back to the original mission of the United States: the end of the domination of the globe by oligarchies, and the creation of self-government of, by, and for the people, based on scientific, cultural and economic progress, everywhere in the world.
Seeing that does require, on the part of the American people, visualizing the complex domain. It requires a metanoia, an inversion in outlook, reversal in direction, and coincidence of apparent opposites, none of which can take place without understanding what the Schiller Institute and the CLINTEL (Climate Intelligence) group have declared in the just-released statement, “A Wake-Up Call”:
“The fact that the human mind, through an immaterial idea, is able to discover these principles, which then have an effect in the material universe in the form of technological progress, proves that there is a correspondence between the lawfulness of the human mind and the laws of the physical universe.... Just as the spatial expanse and anti-entropic evolution of the universe are infinite, so is the intellectual and moral perfectibility of the human mind. Therefore, every additional human being is a new source for further development of the universe and for the solution of problems on Earth, such as overcoming poverty, disease, underdevelopment, and violence.”
“The Coming U.S. Economic Miracle on the New Silk Road” pamphlet, issued by The LaRouche Organization, holds up a mirror to the United States which can no longer recognize itself. “If the U.S. were to reject the Belt and Road Initiative, it would be rejecting its own historical identity,” the pamphlet warns. But the historical identity of the United States, the “who-we-are-ness” of the United States, is retrievable. If, for example, the true historic implications of Alexander Hamilton’s Constitutional approach to Haiti were acknowledged, by applying the standard of his Report on Manufactures to that nation today, nuclear power, advanced rail, and many other projects would be the conceptual starting point of intervention. That is visualizing the complex domain, and is why Joel DeJean’s Congressional candidacy, which proceeds not from the standpoint of Haiti, but from the standpoint of an “Apollo Project” transformation of the world economy through Lyndon LaRouche’s “development corridor” advance upon the New Silk Road, exemplifies the solution vantage point from which, not power, but the principle of the Power of Reason originates.
