“If you keep insisting that the world is just a unipolar world, and that Russia and China are the big enemies and competitors and opponents and so forth, I think this is why we are really in a much greater war danger than most people have an inkling of,” Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche stated emphatically in her March 7 weekly webcast. “The strategic outcome of this historical period will depend on our ability to move the United States away from geopolitics, and to move it into accordance with this idea of being part of this one humanity,” Zepp-LaRouche stated.
President Donald Trump is hated by the British for just this reason—that he has threatened to work with Russia and China for the benefit of all mankind—but he has been significantly hamstrung in those efforts by the plot to topple his Presidency. Trump has now further enraged the British by announcing the establishment of a Presidential Committee on Climate Science, to subject climate change allegations to actual scientific scrutiny, as opposed to media-induced hysteria. The response has been to try to demonize science itself, much as Russia and China are being demonized, by trying to impose a virtual gag order on any reasoned discussion of the matter, on the grounds that it would constitute a threat to national security.
The unipolar world in any case no longer exists, Zepp-LaRouche stressed. Russia has placed an immovable object of sorts in the way of the British geopolitical efforts to use the U.S. to threaten thermonuclear war against Russia and China: that is, Russia’s surprise announcement on March 1, 2018 of military capabilities based on new physical principles, for which the West currently has no rejoinder. And China has breathed new life and optimism for the future into an otherwise dying planet, with the dramatic success of the Belt and Road Initiative and its own epochal accomplishments in poverty reduction. “This is very clearly the future of civilization,” Zepp-LaRouche stated.
In its poverty reduction achievements, China is performing a service for the entire human species that has not been adequately understood. By lifting over 800 million people out of poverty over four decades, they have taken over 10% of the entire human race and transformed them from being an entropic drag on Mankind’s overall productivity, and turned them into an anti- entropic force of unending progress for the entire human species. Add to this what China’s role is in contributing to doing the same in Africa, Asia and other continents, and the enormity of this process begins to come into focus.
China has done this not by handouts to the poor, but by using science, high technology, and great infrastructure projects which bring all of these advances to the entire nation, to build permanent progress into their future.
Clearly, the United States cannot afford to not join the Belt and Road Initiative immediately, and President Trump must take advantage of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s likely trip to the United States in April to advance along that road, and commit to sending a high-level American delegation to the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, which will be held in Beijing in late April.
