U.S./U.K./NATO Insanity Is Driving the Sane World Together for a New Paradigm
May 15, 2022 (EIRNS)—It is increasingly evident to all but the morally blind that the political, economic and military leadership of the declining Anglo-American Empire have gone collectively mad. Under the guise of punishing Russia and China through illegal sanctions, including the theft of the reserves of countries that made the mistake of depositing those reserves in the Western banking system, including the nuclear-armed Russia and the famine-stricken Afghanistan, the U.S., Britain and NATO are intentionally attempting to destroy the entire world economy, and risking nuclear war. The vast majority of the world’s nations—Russia, China, India, all of Africa, all of Ibero-America, and most of Asia (other than South Korea, Japan and Singapore), have refused to go along with the sanctions on Russia. They are all carefully monitoring the high-level discussions taking place between Russia and China to establish a new international financial system to replace the bankrupt dollar empire centered in the City of London and Wall Street.
Beside the evil of the sanctions, they have completely failed to achieve their stated purpose of destroying the Russian economy, just as the massive sanctions already imposed on China (with more on the drawing board) have failed to stop the economic dynamo within China and internationally through China’s Belt and Road Initiative. Quite the opposite, they are creating a massive escalation of the already collapsing Western financial system into a hyperinflationary tailspin, violently destroying the standard of living of the citizens of all the Western nations.
A mistake? Are the imperial governments shooting themselves in the foot? Not really. Recall that the leading Western bankers formed a cartel at the November Climate Conference in Glasgow with the explicit purpose of curtailing credit to fossil fuels and to any industry or farm which refused to follow the dictates of the Green Police to “save the planet,” based on the fake science of carbon-induced climate change. The sanctions on Russia and China are achieving their desired collapse of production within their own nations and in the developing sector. These are Malthusians, committed to realizing the British Imperial dream of global depopulation. Recall arch-imperial hero Bertrand Russell’s famous policies for stopping population growth: “War, so far, has had no very great effect on this increase, which continued through each of the world wars.... War ... has hitherto been disappointing in this respect ... but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could spread throughout the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full.... The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of it? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people’s.”
The only difference today is that nuclear war, which is now being actively planned by the U.S. Strategic Command, might relieve Lord Russell’s “disappointment” in the killing effect of war.
The overwhelming support for the proxy war on Russia taking place in Ukraine from the governments and media of the trans-Atlantic nations is increasingly failing to convince the populations subject to their information warfare, who overwhelmingly want peace and development, not nuclear war. Diane Sare, the Independent LaRouche candidate running for the U.S. Senate in New York, challenging Wall Street’s favorite drug pusher and warmonger Chuck Schumer, released today a statement on the ruthless and senseless killing of ten people in a Buffalo grocery store on Saturday by a crazed teenager wearing the “black moon” symbol on his body armor—a Nazi symbol worn by the neo-Nazi Azov Brigade in Ukraine, which is now being sponsored, armed and trained by the U.S. and British governments to defend “freedom and democracy.”
Will you contact your congressman, your senator, your parliamentarian, to demand the reversal of your government’s support for the revival of fascism in Europe, risking a nuclear war which could mean the annihilation of the human race? Will you study the works of Lyndon LaRouche to understand the economic and cultural transformation required to reverse the current descent into a new Dark Age, and to create a new Renaissance for all mankind? The time is short.
