Dec. 2—“The notion of the sacredness of the individual person depends entirely upon that person’s potential exercise of creative powers to discover, and otherwise choose those forms of technological practice and other behavior, which have at least implicit benefit for all mankind.”—Lyndon LaRouche, “Historical Statement of Principles” 1976
In today’s dying Anglosphere, where mass killing by war is touted as the only efficient policy for ending war, it is incumbent upon the forces of The LaRouche Organization and the Schiller Institute to seize the occasion of this Advent season (the time period spanning the four Sundays prior to Christmas) to reawaken in the trans-Atlantic nations a commitment to the once-celebrated mission of Christian civilization: the voluntary redemption of mankind, without guilt, and without recrimination.
Nov. 25—Because of the accelerating, not decelerating, pace of what has now been officially characterized by Russia as the NATO-Russia conflict—exactly the war that you were assured we would never get into, but which Russia’s Maria Zakharova has now stated “is a confrontation between Russia and NATO in Ukraine”—we call attention to the first exchange in Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s webcast of today. It is an example of, not an “information-packed briefing,” but of the method of Plato’s Socratic dialogue. The method used is “thinking by negation,” revealing to the listener/questioner that, not only does he/she have the “facts” wrong. More than that, “in fact,” they will never apprehend what is actually going on, no matter how many facts they accumulate, unless they change the way they see the whole world. “How you see the world depends on how you look at it.”
Nov. 18—“I speak of peace, therefore, as the necessary rational end of rational men. I realize that the pursuit of peace is not as dramatic as the pursuit of war—and frequently the words of the pursuer fall on deaf ears. But we have no more urgent task.”
—John F. Kennedy, American University, June 10, 1963
Nov. 8—Those in the United States that today will have the privilege and opportunity to vote for Independent candidates Diane Sare (United States Senate in New York) and Joel De Jean (U.S. Congress 38th CD,Texas), or for those that have worked with them despite policy differences, such as Geoff Young (6th CD,Kentucky), are reviving what many Americans do not even realize has been stolen—not “American elections,” but the American electoral process itself. Today’s electoral process is only significant as it is subsumed in the global battle to walk the world back from the brink of thermonuclear war, and to a durable new strategic and economic architecture based on a return to the recently-abandoned ideal and practice of the 1648 Treaty of Westphalia.
Nov. 4—Today, Executive Intelligence Review hosts the press availability, “A Nuclear War Cannot Be Won and Must Never Be Fought.” Speakers will include Diane Sare, LaRouche independent candidate for U.S. Senate, New York; Ray McGovern, former Senior Analyst, U.S. Central Intelligence Agency; Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder and head, international Schiller Institute; Scott Ritter, former UN weapons inspector, USMC intelligence officer, and military analyst; Jacques Cheminade, president/founder Solidarité et Progrès, France; Col. Richard H. Black (ret.), former head of the U.S. Army’s Criminal Law Division at the Pentagon, former Virginia State Senator, and others. Zepp-LaRouche and Sare, from the vantage point of their multiple interchanges with international media and institutions over the past ten days, determined that the pace at which the world continues to careen toward thermonuclear war has not lessened. With the recent “naming of the names” of some of the British operatives alleged to have supervised the attacks on Russia, despite Britain’s denials, the world has become even more dangerous.
Oct. 25—In two days, the Schiller Institute convenes a conference titled: “For World Peace, Stop the Danger of Nuclear War.” Subtitled the “Second Seminar of Current and Former Elected Officials of the World,” this particular conference intervenes, in the midst of the 60th anniversary of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, to pull the world away from the brink of thermonuclear self-destruction. The only force we wield is the force of ideas—but that is, as Russian-Ukrainian physicist Vladimir Vernadsky rigorously proved, the greatest force, geological or otherwise, on (and perhaps off) the planet.
Oct. 20—“That Was The Week That Was” was the title of an early-1960s British comedy show and political satire, part of that era’s “British Invasion” cultural counter-offensive against the United States. Without her knowledge, the here-and-gone British Prime Minister, Liz “Nuke ’Em” Truss was involuntarily and inexorably maneuvered and cast in a one-episode “reality show” remake of that series in the past seven days. British broadcaster Piers Morgan provided an autopsy on the short-lived “Truss Turn,” saying, “it is literally impossible to exaggerate the scale of the bedlam that this government has unleashed on our country in the last six weeks… these useless clowns have basically ravaged our country.”
Oct. 14—There is rank opportunism, there is criminally insane opportunism, and then there is British Prime Minister Liz “Nuke ’Em” Truss. For the past three weeks, Truss insisted: “We will decrease taxes, and we will not be deterred.” Down, down, down went the British pound. As of 48 hours ago, she says now, just as energetically and self-confidently: “We will increase taxes, and you can take that to the Bank of England!” The London Telegraph reported: “Ms. Truss had pledged not to raise the tax from 19% to 25%, which had been scheduled for April next year by (her PM election opponent) Rishi Sunak when he was Chancellor [of the Exchequer]. That rise will now go ahead as planned, scrapping one of the key planks of her campaign for the Tory leadership.” Oops!!
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.
Sept. 30—President Vladimir Putin today gave what is arguably the most important speech given by a Russian leader since the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. It was a coruscating, unwelcome but necessary “wake up call” to the trans-Atlantic world. Various commentators described it as “a definitive break with the West,” although it could equally as well be termed a reassertion of the power of reason in opposition to the imperial “rule of law,” which, far from being “democratic,” is a throwback to the worst period of the Byzantine Empire, and the “in country” excesses of colonial rule in the Congo. Putin’s extensive remarks have caused reactions of white-hot hatred, of stunned awe, of deep consternation, of grudging admiration and wild enthusiasm. An analysis of the entirety will have to occur over the next days, but some things should be indicated.
Sept. 23—“There is one thing, and one thing only, which could save the world, and that is that America should make war on Russia during the next two years, and establish a world empire, by means of the atomic bomb.” —Bertrand Russell, September 1945.
Sept. 9—Saturday’s Schiller Institute Conference, “Inspiring Humanity To Survive the Greatest Crisis in World History,” is an application of the optimistic principle of Nemesis to the world strategic situation, otherwise called “current history.” In order to successfully establish, in this time of conjunctural crisis, a new security and development architecture, even as war seems the chosen, doomed means of discourse among nations, the Schiller Institute and its interlocutors must act as the Nemesis of the presently prevailing civilizational direction of the trans-Atlantic world. The September 8 death of the Queen of England, on the 100th anniversary of Lyndon LaRouche’s birth, is, in at least a metaphorical sense, an expression of that same principle of Nemesis.
Sept. 2—“The awful Shadow of the unseen power of universal history, floats, though unseen, among us.”
The assassin walked up, took aim and pulled the trigger. Nothing. He pulled the trigger again. Nothing. The former President, now vice-President, was unhurt. “I have stared into the face of Death, and Death has turned his face away from mine.” Had a miracle occurred?
Aug. 26—When Napoleon arrived in Moscow on September 14, 1812, he presumed that on that day, or the next, he would be greeted by an official delegation presenting to him Russia’s conditions for surrender. When, instead, the next day, he was greeted by multiple fires that nearly burned down the entire city of Moscow, he, nevertheless, clung to the assumption that Alexander I was merely delaying the inevitable. It was only when, in mid-October, the first snowflakes began to fall, and no terms of surrender had yet arrived, that Napoleon dimly sensed what he still did not wish to apprehend. His 600,000 army would be annihilated, not by the opposing Russian (and Prussian) military force, not even by “General Winter,” but by himself. Today’s NATO triumphalists should take note, but they will not.
Aug. 19—We must first start from what Dr. Martin Luther King referred to, alternately, as “the arc of the moral universe” and “the mountain-top,” to report the true progress of humanity’s “city-builders,” astronomers, and statesmen, in defiance of the merchants of Perfidious Albion, “Global NATO,” and “The dictatorship of democracies.”
Today, 77 years ago, August 6, 1945, the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. In two months, from the blasts at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as many as 200,000 died from the explosions and their effects. The only nation in world history to have dropped the bomb is the United States, not Russia, not China. The dropping of the bombs was not necessary; negotiations with the Japanese were well underway. The bombs were dropped to send another message. “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
July 29—On Thursday, July 28, a group of independent-minded writers, journalists and thinkers, most of them former participants in symposia organized by the Schiller Institute, began circulating the following response to an operation, launched by the multiple intelligence agencies of NATO, to discredit them and prevent their exposure of the true nature of the so-called “Ukraine conflict.”
July 22—Today, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, author of the speech “Gandhi’s Vision for a New Paradigm in International Relations, a World Health System, and Direct Non-Violent Action in Times of Social Breakdown,” will offer a strategic evaluation and remarks, addressing a Schiller Institute webcast, on July 23 at 2 p.m. EDT, in response to the breakthrough against the self-destructive and immoral policy of “war by sanctions” that occurred Friday, July 22 in Istanbul, Turkey.
July 15—This is the summer of falling regimes (Italy, Estonia, United Kingdom, Sri Lanka) and rising resistance (international solidarity among farm leaders in Spain, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Portugal and the United States; the movement of Ibero-American and African nations toward China and away from the dollar.) While war continues to spread, so does the consciousness of its futility.
July 8, 2022—Shelley’s admonition, that man must rule the empire of himself, is the emotional standard of our 2022 “Declaration of Independence” from war and insanity, the Ad Hoc Committee for a New Bretton Woods" petition. New signers are being sought and found. Some appear in today’s report.
June 24—The Schiller Institute will co-opt the upcoming American Fourth of July Weekend and present the LaRouche New Bretton Woods proposal as the core content of a world development architecture, and therefore a world security architecture. This will occur on Sunday, July 3. It will feature a keynote by Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche. Independent candidate for the U.S. Senate in New York Diane Sare is also invited to speak, and others may participate as well.
