We are about to get a breakdown of the entire trans-Atlantic system, possibly as early as the beginning of January, Lyndon LaRouche emphasized today. That dictates the need for getting short-term results in pulling the United States and Europe into the BRICS dynamic, not long-term plans and packages which may come too late to make a difference, if we don’t act now. Under these conditions, long-range planning can be hazardous, LaRouche stated.
Breaking developments in Greece are exemplary of how fast the situation is moving, as well as the depth of the crisis.
Elections are now scheduled for Jan. 25, in which a Syriza-led government is likely to emerge, who have already made it clear that they intend to bolt from the genocidal austerity that the Troika has imposed on the country. As rattled commentators in the British Empire’s media outlets are all admitting, this “anti-system” ferment can spread in a heartbeat to Spain, Portugal, Italy, France and even Great Britain.
Writing in the Financial Times, Gideon Rachman got right to the point: the greatest risk is that “voters would revolt against economic austerity,” and if that happens, “the whole house of cards of debt, bailouts and austerity begins to wobble.”
This is reminiscent of JP Morgan’s complaint in May 2013 that the main problem in Europe is the existence of anti-fascist constitutions which were adopted after World War II.
Fascism, you see, would make life so much easier for the British Empire. Such a shame the Russians, Chinese, other BRICS countries, and growing numbers of nations across Ibero-America and Asia, don’t agree, and are not capitulating to the blackmail threats of military and financial thermonuclear war.
As for the United States, LaRouche stated, we are bankrupt, and the population is demoralized. Our military capabilities are all screwed up, our institutions are incompetent and are breaking down. The U.S. is crippled, LaRouche emphasized, and we have to purge ourselves of the economic and moral disease that has taken over, especially since Kennedy’s assassination. In that regard, LaRouche has issued a public call for criminal prosecution against Cheney and others in the Bush administration for their torture program, and of Obama for his complicity after the fact in covering up these crimes.
Returning to the underlying, systemic cause of the nation’s problem today, LaRouche emphasized in discussion with associates Tuesday evening:
“And so those elements of persuasion, which are commonly placed around the world today, among the softer people, that stuff is crap. Get rid of it! It’s gone.
“We have, on the planet, we have the nations like the BRICS. We have nations like that, which are maybe perhaps sometimes imperfect, but they’re moving in the right direction. China, is at this moment, the leading force in that direction, throughout the planet as a whole. The most important feature of that, is the space program of China. This is going in the direction of the creation, of a new system. This takes us to Kepler’s residence in spirit. That’s the solution.
“And, therefore, if you get rid of the killers, and so forth, what you get is you get nations such as China, and other BRICS ,and so forth. And those nations are capable of inspiring the world as a whole, to change its behavior. There’s really nothing that bad, in terms of the world as a whole, if you get rid of those bastards. And, don’t kiss their ass! It blocks your view of the future!”
