Despite rumors of problems in the U.S. media, China is optimistic that agreement will be reached on the world’s largest-ever economic deal—a “trade agreement” with the United States—some time soon after five days of intensive negotiations beginning today in Beijing.
At the same time, not just North Korea and the U.S., but also South Korea, China and Russia, are all intensely involved in trying to insure the success of President Donald Trump’s peace summit with North Korea’s Chairman Kim Jong UN on Feb. 27-28 in Hanoi.
China, India, Iran, Pakistan and Russia are negotiating with each other and the U.S. to try to insure peace in Afghanistan after the U.S. eventually withdraws its troops. An overlapping group of countries is negotiating to try to insure peace after the U.S. withdraws troops from Syria, a withdrawal which is ongoing now, and reportedly will be completed by the end of April.
London refuses to accept it, and many in Western Europe refuse to admit it, but after major changes in Russia and China around the turn of the new century, and now with the Trump Presidency in the U.S., the world constellation of forces and ideas has undergone dizzying changes to the point that the national and world recovery plans of Lyndon LaRouche, which were apparently checkmated in the last century, are now suddenly practicable.
We are moving towards the new Westphalian world system of which Lyndon LaRouche has so often written. A world of perfectly sovereign nation-states, which willingly unite together to achieve what LaRouche’s ally Edward Teller memorably called “the common aims of mankind.”
Although the superficial observer thinks that Lyndon LaRouche was defeated and crushed in the 20th century, the experts and the first-hand observers understand that the ideas of the actually undefeated Lyndon LaRouche, were crucially catalytic in bringing about this great, still-onrushing change through which we are living today.
Unfortunately, this process is not irreversible. Or at any rate, it is certainly not yet irreversible. We have seen how Britain’s Edward VII contrived to launch the world’s worst-ever war to that date, World War I, in order to prevent his nightmare of the new, peaceful Westphalian system of co-development in Europe and Southwest Asia, symbolized by the Berlin-to-Baghdad railway. We saw what happened to John Kennedy when he was beginning to work to complete Franklin Roosevelt’s work, and reaching out to the Soviets and to outer space.
As Helga Zepp-LaRouche has often noted recently, the key link in the whole chain is the United States. If the United States brings Russia, China, and India together for a New Bretton Woods system, the adversary British Empire will be defeated. If our pro-British establishment were to succeed in their dream of reversing the 2016 election, that will reverse today’s winding-down of wars, and a bigger war, perhaps the last war, will soon start.
This is where you, the citizen, enter the picture. This is where you prove whether you, now, in 2019, measure up to the responsibility our Founding Fathers placed upon you almost a quarter of a millennium ago. It can not be up to one man alone, to defeat every snare the adversary will set for him. It cannot be up to one man, alone, to master the economic and related policies which Lyndon LaRouche spent a lifetime developing.
