Zepp-LaRouche Deploys Schiller’s ‘Ibykus Principle’ Against the Anglosphere’s ‘NATO-Fascism’By Dennis Speed
Oct. 6—Today’s Executive intelligence Review-sponsored event, “We Will Not Be Silenced: Speaking Truth In Times of War,” allowed the courageous journalists, present and former intelligence officers, political candidates, authors, and others who have been “marked for death” by a NATO-directed pogrom against the truth, to not only speak out, but to be given a clear idea as to how to work together to defeat the danger, not only of war, of thermonuclear war, whether by miscalculation or design. That event is reported below. It featured a never-publicly-discussed first-hand recounting of aspects of the near-assassination of Helga Zepp-LaRouche and Lyndon LaRouche, 36 years ago to the day, October 6,1986. The apparatus that attempted that double assassination then, is the ancestor of the apparatus that must be dismantled today.
Also this week, on October 5, the National Security Archive recalled the release, 20 years ago in 2002, of never-before-released documents pertaining to the Cuban Missile Crisis of October-December 1962: “The Cuban Missile Crisis actually lasted 59 days, not the fabled ‘13 days’ so familiar from books and Hollywood, according to a new collection announced today by the National Security Archive. Soviet nuclear warheads arrived in Cuba on October 4, 1962, and did not leave until December 1. Those warheads were never detected by U.S. intelligence while they were in Cuba.”
Included in those then-released documents was a memo written in 1998 by the Soviet Russian officer in charge of the transfer, placement, deployment, and removal of those weapons, Lt. Gen. (then Colonel) Nikolai Beloborodov. Beloborodov made it clear that the missiles were armed and were ready to be used. “It was clear that in the conditions of the existing balance of forces in conventional arms, which was ten to one against us, there was only one way we could repel a massive assault—by using tactical nuclear weapons against the invaders. In principle, this action would be consistent with international law on the protection of sovereignty and freedom. But that would be the beginning of the end. Only madmen could unleash a nuclear war.”
From this sobering standpoint, consider the recent remarks by retired Italian Gen. Fabio Mini, reported just two days ago. Reflecting on the January 3, 2022 statement made by the five nations of the UN Security Council, reaffirming the idea that a nuclear war among nuclear powers cannot be won and should therefore never be fought, General Mini said that, far from being reassured, “It almost seems to me that with that statement a kind of green light was given” for the use of tactical nuclear weapons by a nuclear-capable state against non-nuclear capable states. “Every theater commander, such as the U.S. commander of U.S. forces in Europe, has permanent authority to employ the tactical nuclear weapons at his disposal,” he asserted. Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, a participant in the “We Will Not Be Silenced” event, reported that this was indeed the case when he served in Europe in the 1960s. McGovern also reported that the official American intelligence estimate at the time of the October 1962 crisis was that there were no nuclear missiles in Cuba. Without John and Robert Kennedy, it is likely, or at least highly possible, that the world would not be here today.
Such leaders do not presently exist in the Anglosphere. President Vladimir Putin, speaking to teachers two days ago, warned that “Perhaps, there would have been no conflict today had certain forces in Ukraine and the West refrained from trying to correct history and tear history apart, had they refrained from glorifying those who had collaborated with Hitler, with the German Nazis, and trying to revive neo-Nazism on our historic lands.” In opposition to the ideology of cultural pessimism, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, in the earliest days of the Schiller Institute in the mid-1980s, headed an investigative unit that produced an extensive study, published under the title The Hitler Book, which identified the unacknowledged Anglo-American origins of “universal fascism.” Zepp-LaRouche’s proposals, whether “Operation Ibn Sina,” the World Health Platform, or the “Committee for the Coincidence of Opposites,” in contrast, have proposed, in two years’ worth of non-stop conferences, a new security and development architecture which proceeds from German poet Friedrich Schiller’s idea, not only of Freedom, but of Divine Justice. She referred to this as the “Ibykus Principle” in her presentation to the “We Will Not Be Silenced” gathering, and that appears below.
That idea, that the “arc of the moral universe bends toward justice” is what must inform the fight against those forces, now no longer hidden, whose cynical mockery-by-use of the terms “democracy,” “human rights,” “ecology,” etc. is increasingly seen for what it is. Whether it be the blowing up of the Nordstream pipeline, the collapse of the physical living standards of Europe, the genocidal destruction of nations such as Haiti, or the benign neglect seen in the proliferation of pandemic diseases, the lack of moral fitness to survive of the Malthusians of the trans-Atlantic is the enemy from within that dooms them. The Anglosphere’s Nemesis, is that the best of all possible worlds is a choice, not a dream, and the Schiller Institute intends to do everything in its power to catalyze a movement to allow the world to make that choice, now. We, and all those who wish to campaign for “the best of all possible worlds,” will not be silenced.
