Helga Zepp-LaRouche: The Critical Schiller Institute Conference of Nov. 13-14
Nov. 6, 2021 (EIRNS)—Speaking in her strategic webcast on The LaRouche Organization website, Schiller Institute founder and President Helga Zepp-LaRouche called on everyone to join the virtual Schiller Institute Conference on Nov. 13-14, beginning at 10:00 a.m. EST, under the title “All Moral Resources of Humanity Have To Be Called Up: Mankind Must Be the Immortal Species!” The conference will be a demonstration of the coming together of all nations to prevent the descent into war and a new dark age, to launch a new international renaissance based on reason and the common aims of mankind. Here is her statement, slightly edited:
Helga Zepp-LaRouche: This conference will be super important! I can only invite you, all our viewers and listeners, to absolutely reserve the time. It will have four panels. We already have lined up very, very important speakers from Russia, from China, from the United States, from Europe. The first panel will deal with the strategic crisis. The title is “Can a Strategic Crisis Between the Major Powers Be Avoided?” This raises such crisis spots as Taiwan, the increasing tensions and the potential war between the U.S. and China over Taiwan. Then, the same thing over Ukraine with Russia. And in general, the strategic situation, which is at an incredibly dangerous point right now. So that will be extremely important—and you will not get such open discussion elsewhere. Many of the participants and speakers of previous conferences have said again and again that they regard the Schiller Institute as an absolutely unique platform for such a dialogue to occur.
Because, as you may have noticed, the mainstream media are pretty much what was called during the Nazi period “Gleichgeschaltet”—completely unified, not allowing an opposing view. For example, if you say that there are large numbers of scientists who claim that the data of the UN Climate panel IPCC are not correct, you are immediately eliminated from the media! There is complete dictatorship in the media, and increasingly also in the social media.
So this platform is very important, because we have top level people from many countries, who speak openly about these issues. So this is a must.
The second panel is on the economic breakdown—hyperinflation—and also such situations as the breakdown of entire continents, entire countries such as Afghanistan and Haiti; the drug problem; the explosion of prices.
Then a third panel on Sunday, on the question of the science of climate. We will have many very important scientists on the real science of the climate, on thermonuclear fusion energy, on space cooperation. So this will be very optimistic, because it shows you where we can go.
The fourth panel will be on the cultural demise of the West and what to do about it, namely, to have a dialogue of cultures, and a cultural renaissance of Classical cultures in the best traditions from nations around the world. So this will be beautiful.
I will put out a more precise program very soon. In the meantime, you can find the invitation on our website. You should register, and you should get it to all of your friends, and look forward to an enjoyable, very creative weekend.
