In July of 2016, candidate Donald Trump told a news conference that “there’s nothing I can think of that I’d rather do than have Russia friendly, as opposed to the way they are right now, so that we can go and knock out ISIS with other people.” The next day he asked his supporters at a campaign rally: “Wouldn’t it be a great thing if we could get along with Russia?” He was enthusiastically supported. Across the country, especially working people who were suffering from the economic malaise at home, were also disgusted with Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama’s perpetual wars, destroying nations and killing hundreds of thousands in the process, in nations which were no threat to the U.S., and were in fact fiercely confronting terrorist insurgents in their own nations. Their crime: being friends with Russia, and refusing to be subservient to the Empire centered in the City of London and Wall Street.
On July 7, President Trump is tentatively scheduled to meet with Russian President Putin for the first time. There is a potentiality that he will establish a strong, working relationship with the leader of the other nuclear superpower. Just a week earlier, he had told the leading Chinese statesman for foreign policy, Yang Jiechi, that he was ready to bring the U.S. into the New Silk Road, through a strong, working relationship with President Xi Jinping. On Monday this week, he established a strong, working relationship with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
This is what terrifies the would-be gods of the dying western empire.
On October 10, 2009, Lyndon LaRouche, speaking to the World Public Forum Dialogue of Civilizations, on the Island of Rhodes in Greece, said:
“If Russia, and the United States, and China, and India, agree, as a group of countries, to initiate and force a reorganization of the world financial and credit system, under these conditions, with long term agreements, of the same type that Franklin Roosevelt had uttered before his death, in 1944, under key nations, the intention of Roosevelt all these years later, could have been realized, and we could do that today.”
That time has come. The “Four Powers” are nearly aligned in a manner which could, finally, once and for all, rid the human race of the curse of Empire, the scourge of war, and the misery of poverty.
The imperial lords will stop at nothing to prevent the destruction of their Empire from Hell. Calls for Trump’s impeachment or assassination now appear in the media, in a perverted version of Shakespeare’s Julius Ceasar in New York’s Central Park, at rock concerts in Britain. Traitors within the U.S., even within Trump’s own circle, create fake news to draw Trump into a war in Syria, which would lead rapidly to war with Russia — thermonuclear war.
But it is increasingly clear that the American population, even many who did not support Trump’s election, are disgusted and fed up with the hysterical Russophobia, the demonization of Trump and Putin, and are expressing this disgust in the recent elections, in social media, and, most importantly, in growing support for the LaRouche movement across the country.
On July 7 in New York City, agricultural experts from China, the United States and others will gather for a conference co-sponsored by LaRouche’s Schiller Institute. The Chinese experts, in several cases, have been at the center of the process which lifted 600 million Chinese out of poverty, and are committed to working with the United States and others to alleviate poverty world wide. This is indeed possible, provided that the U.S. and Europe reverse the collapse of the western economies under the brutish monetarist system, which has destroyed the idea of progress in our nations. Restoring the Hamiltonian policies of our forefathers, as spelled out in LaRouche’s Four Laws, can and must provide the foundation for global cooperation within the new paradigm.
Anything less, at this moment of historical opportunity, is insane and intolerable. Percy Shelly, in his “A Defense of Poetry” of 1821, described historical periods of intense struggle, as this one is, in this way:
“At such periods there is an accumulation of the power of communicating and receiving intense and impassioned conceptions respecting man and nature. The person in whom this power resides, may often, as far as regards many portions of their nature, have little apparent correspondence with that spirit of good of which they are the ministers. But even whilst they deny and abjure, they are yet compelled to serve, that power which is seated on the throne of their own soul.”
Humanity is experiencing a moment of historic phase change, for good or for ill. It is a time for poetic action.
