Zepp-LaRouche Briefs on China Radio’s ‘World Today’ Broadcast on World War Threat
Sept. 13, 2022 (EIRNS)—Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche was a featured guest on the first segment of China Radio International’s “World Today” broadcast on “What’s Behind Mass Protests Across Europe?” She condemned the neoliberal policies of the West which are destroying their own populations while also bringing the world dangerously close to world war. After speaking about the growth of the protests, from the Netherlands to Germany and now beyond, Zepp-LaRouche identified the European Union's anti-farming policies in combination with the rise in fuel and fertilizer prices: “There will be no more food!”
When asked about the actions being taken by European leaders, Zepp-LaRouche simply remarked that
“they are not competent. They listened to advisors, and these advisors told them ... that inflation will be only temporary.... Now that is completely incompetent. And it’s very important that the top economist of Russia, Sergei Glazyev just told in a birthday message for my late husband who had his 100th birthday, Lyndon LaRouche, that he, LaRouche prognosed the collapse of the neoliberal system more than three, four decades ago, and that all of this pain which is being suffered now, could have been avoided if people had listened to him.”
Further on the EU’s policies:
“All they are now saying to the population is that they should reduce consumption, that they should not take showers any more but use a washcloth—this is absurd! If they wanted to deal with this situation, they should shut down the Amsterdam energy trading exchange, where alone, in the last month, €1.5 trillion had to be generated to cover margin calls! I mean, this is untenable. You shut down the Amsterdam exchange, and then replace that with long-term deals on energy, like with Russia on the gas and oil, and then the inflation would disappear immediately. But they’re not willing to do that. They’re trying to impose austerity now on the population and this will lead to more in social explosion.”
The anchor asked Zepp-LaRouche about the Ukrainian counter-offensive over the weekend and the response to this in Europe. She responded by saying that the process exemplified by the Sept. 9 meeting at the U.S. Ramstein airbase in Germany, promising more weapons and support for Ukraine, is extremely dangerous. “I think that that brings us really one step closer to world war. And there is right now in Russia, in the public media, a big debate about that. I think people have to wake up: This present policy of confrontation against Russia, and by implication against China as well, is bringing the world very close to a possible world war,” she warned.
