CONFERENCEE JUNEE 18-19
There can be no peace without the bankruptcy of the reorganization of the dying transatlantic financial system
The Schiller Institute on May 31 issued the following invitation, now distributed internationally in multiple languages, to its two-day online international conference, to be held on June 18.
Lyndon LaRouche discusses his Triple Curve at a Schiller Institute/ICLC conference, Crystal City, Virginia, January 17, 1998.
In this year 2022, the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lyndon LaRouche, it is time to finally recognize the correctness of his warning for decades: that the continuation of the policies of financial speculation and plunder of the City of London and the politics of free trade and the floating exchange rate system, enshrined after August 1971, would necessarily lead to war – and most likely thermonuclear war – associated with the drastic collapse of the world physical economy and the consequent depopulation would result; the death of millions or even billions of human beings by famine and pandemics.
But it is also time to resort to the political solutions provided by Lyndon LaRouche, to successfully reorganize the bankruptcy of this dying system and replace it with a new international security and development architecture built on the same philosophical cornerstone of art. to govern which resulted in the Peace of Westphalia in 1648.
On the danger of nuclear war, spokespersons for the failed transatlantic system have been explicit about their intention to push Russia to the brink, in hopes of rolling it back and submitting to the unipolar empire. . Malcolm Chalmers, deputy chief executive of the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), the British Empire’s central policy-planning think tank since its founding in 1831, has openly declared that the British are “boiling the frog Russian”. and intended to provoke a Crimean Missile Crisis to force Russia to strategically capitulate.
As for the physical economic collapse, the Federal Reserve has been on a global quantitative easing spree that has triggered runaway hyperinflation, now spreading $1.9 quadrillion in unpayable derivatives and other financial assets to production and consumer goods sectors of the economy. As a result, there are drastic and growing shortages of food, energy and other essentials for human survival. Up to 2 billion of the approximately 8 billion people on this planet face food insecurity this year which, if not urgently reversed, will rapidly turn into famine, then starvation for up to to a quarter of humanity.
Neil E. Das
The economic and financial collapse is causing drastic and growing shortages and price hikes of commodities essential to human survival. Above, a former industrial area in St. Louis, Missouri; below: rising gasoline and diesel prices; and empty grocery store shelves.
While the sanctions imposed on Russia and the impact of the war in Ukraine have aggravated the crisis, particularly with regard to food and energy supplies, the idea that the economic crisis was caused by war, simply ignores reality. Ending the war will not end the systemic collapse of the entire western financial system.
There is no doubt that there is a global revolt simmering against these economic conditions and the danger of war associated with them. Most nations in Africa, Latin America and Asia have refused to follow the policy of suicidal sanctions against Russia, and even the European Union is cracking open, unable to reach consensus on the issue.
Another strong indication of the rising tide of deep concern over the dangers facing humanity is the response to the Schiller Institute of April 26, 2022 with Colonel Richard Black (retired) warning of the danger of war, which had over 630,000 views by 31 May.
Such ferment is a necessary but not sufficient condition to bring about the new world renaissance required. As Helga Zepp-LaRouche said during the discussion period of a Schiller Institute event on May 26:
Join us at the Schiller Institute International Conference on June 18-19 to ensure this question is answered in the affirmative and to build a growing international movement for Lyndon LaRouche’s political solutions to the global crisis.
