The sudden flocking of what seems like dozens of Democratic Presidential candidates to endorse a “Green New Deal” of which they knew nothing just days earlier, is a sign, in America, of the collapse of the “liberal” governing parties going on all over Europe since 2016.
The rapid electoral collapse of the formerly governing parties in Germany, France, Italy, etc. followed their adoption of increasingly fantastic “new economy” claims and plans which were colored deeper and deeper “green”, but which were actually brutal forms of economic austerity and deindustrialization under a green cover. Germany is exemplary: Its governing parties have “exited” the country from nuclear and now from coal, and have thereby tripled the cost of electricity to their people’s households and industrial jobs. Now those parties themselves are rapidly “exiting”, and splintering, after years of zero- or negative economic growth, suppression of wages and incomes, workfare programs, and so on. The same in France has triggered the open national revolt of the “Yellow Vests”.
Now the Democratic candidates are signing on to a Congressional “Green New Deal” resolution full of utopian “new economy” claims so wild, that they make covering the European countrysides and seacoasts with giant windmills look realistic by comparison. Nor do any of these Democratic “leaders” know what is actually inside computer climate models; nor do they know the science of future energy and power technologies. The call, by their new whip-hand Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, for closing down all the nuclear power plants in America, threw these Democrats into a panic. They did not want to say anything about any energy technologies — just that they must be “clean”; and they must give us “prosperity for all” instead of the zero growth and austerity that “green energy” is bringing the rest of the industrial West.
A new scientific vision has to replace the “liberal” geopolitical order, enforced by more and more dangerous war confrontations, which we now see unable to govern.
The most efficient and cleanest electric power/heat source with the highest quality industrial energy today, is nuclear power. But the far greater potential of the near future is expressed in the “four new laws to save the nation” developed by Lyndon LaRouche. A crash program to master fusion power is the key to electrifying the areas of the planet which are “blacked out” at night, and ending poverty there. Plasma science is also the basis for the propulsion and other new technologies for space colonization beyond the Moon. And these technologies are the keys to future development of a Strategic Defense of Earth against asteroid or comet strikes from space.
The other spacefaring nations will cooperate with the United States to make these the common frontiers of scientific endeavor and economic development for mankind as a whole.
LaRouche’s “world land-bridge” vision of great infrastructure projects bringing transportation and power and communications across Eurasia and into other continents, has been launched in China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
This is the ability to see the potential of future generations, for which Lyndon LaRouche’s life and work are being appreciated by so many.
