Let Us Celebrate The Future Spirit of Humanity

Helga Zepp-LaRouche Victory Day Message

– Let Us Celebrate The Future Spirit of Humanity –

Only 73 years after the Second World War when people
responded to that horrible catastrophe with the solemn commitment
“Never Again,” we find ourselves again on the verge of a possible
hot war.

With one provocation after another, each more transparently
false than the previous one, the war faction of the City of
London imperial oligarchs and their Wall Street neo-con/neo-lib
partners continue their efforts to sabotage the potential of the
New Paradigm, which is emerging in Eurasia to be a worldwide
movement with breathtaking speed. Even though Russiagate, the
Skripal poisoning, and the Douma chemical weapons “false flag”
hoax all have been exposed as originating in the diseased minds
of British intelligence circles, still they are at it again, this
time with Netanyahu claiming he has “proof” that Iran never ended
its nuclear program, attempting to trap the United States into
yet another disastrous war in the Middle East and a possible
nuclear confrontation with Russia. Many in the governments of the
West have stepped on that slippery slope again, which was warned
about in the Nuremburg Tribunal, by violating international law
and the principles laid down in the United Nations Charter.

But their power is diminishing, as they have increasingly
been forced to act in their own name, thereby exposing
themselves. Their ability to keep control has also been
diminishing, due to the challenge from the New Silk Road and the
New Paradigm it represents. In the last weeks, diplomatic and
economic events and summits have greatly advanced the New
Paradigm. The strategic partnership between Russia and China and
the integration of the Belt and Road Initiative with the Eurasian
Economic Union have created hope for especially the developing
countries, who see the chance to overcome poverty and
underdevelopment for the first time.

The best way to commemorate the losses, the suffering, and
the heroism of the individuals who lost their lives in the Great
Patriotic War is by creating a new era of mankind, which puts the
concept of the one humanity first, in that way creating a new
international order, which overcomes geopolitics forever.
Imperialism must be defeated as a relic of a bestial image of
man, and be replaced with the noble image of man as the only
creative species known in the universe so far.

Let us celebrate the future spirit of humanity, which is so
beautifully expressed in the {Ode to Joy}by Friedrich Schiller
and the 9th Symphony of Ludwig van Beethoven:

“All men become brethren…
Be embrac’d, ye millions yonder!
Take this kiss throughout the world!
Brothers — o’er the stars unfurl’d
Must reside a loving Father.”


Putin Will Join the Two Koreas in Big Projects

TASS reports today that South Korean President Moon Jae-in telephoned Russian President Vladimir Putin and the latter welcomed the results of the inter-Korean summit.

“While exchanging their opinions, the two sides positively assessed the agreements reached at that meeting. Special attention was paid to the intention to secure the non-nuclear status of the Korean Peninsula enshrined in the Panmunjom Declaration through its total denuclearization. It was affirmed that coordinated measures to develop inter-Korean cooperation will also contribute to the region’s advancement towards peace and stability,” the Kremlin specified.

Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed Russia’s intention to further contribute to the development of cooperation between North and South Korea. “Russia’s intention to further contribute to the development of practical cooperation between the Republic of Korea and the D.P.R.K., in particular through the implementation of large trilateral infrastructural and energy projects, was confirmed. Vladimir Putin highlighted the importance of continuing efforts by all parties concerned for a politico-diplomatic solution of the Korean Peninsula problems, including with regard to milestones contained in the Russia-China roadmap,” the Kremlin press service said.

The South Korean news agency Yonhap reported today that the South Korean Transportation Ministry is reviewing a set of measures to prepare a potantially full-fledged implementation of criss-border economic projects. Officials said that inter-Korean cooperation can be discussed, as the two Koreas are expected to hold working-level talks to execute the railway construction projects to connect them.


Xi and Modi Agree to Joint Economic Project in Afghanistan, and Other Actions

While the two-day “Informal Summit” of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping did not issue formal, official dispatches, results have been made known, which include commitments of major importance. {The Hindu} reported these today in a summary way.

The two nations will undertake a joint economic project in Afghanistan, the first ever such collaboration.

There will be stepped up military-to-military collaboration between the two nations.

The “Closer Development Partnership” between China and India will be strengthened, involving economic cooperation and people-to-people exchanges.

In economic relations, there will be a push in bilateral trade and investment, for more balance between the nations, by taking advantage of economic complimentarities.

Each nation will appoint a Special Representative to play a role in these functions.

There will be stepped up cooperation against terrorism.

Both leaders concurred on the value of the “Informal Summit” format and will continue to hold more such dialogues. Modi has invited Xi to India for a similar occasion in 2019


Modi and Xi in Wuhan — The Launching of an Asia Century

April 27, 2018 -On the same day as the historic Summit between North and South Korea’s leaders, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping met today in Wuhan for an “informal meeting,” which, although there will be no communique or press conference, could presage the launching of an “Asian Century,” and a new paradign for mankind. The tension between China and India, over the military confrontation on the border in Doklam and over the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (which passes through an area contested between Pakistan and India) has held Modi back from participating in the Belt and Road Initiative.

Reports that Modi might have campaigned in the next election on an anti-CHina platform (which was certainly being encouraged by the Brits and the neocons) is now a thing of the past. The visit to China was not long planned, but a recent decision to change the course of relations to the better.
Modi tweeted before arriving today: “President Xi and I will exchange views on a range of issues of bilateral and global importnace. We will discuss our respective visions and priorities for national development, particularly in the context of current and future internation situation.” They will have two long discussions, and four other events.
       Among the events was was a visit today to the famous museum of artifacts discovered only in 1978 in the tomb of Marquis Yi of Zeng, burid in 433 BC, which included the incredible Bianzhong
Bells — a set of 65 bronze bells which produced a twelve tone scale tuned to C=256, with 2800 characters inscribed on the bells — a “music manual” form the 5th Century BC. Both Xi and Modi
played the bells.
Modi noted that as Chief Minister of Gujarat, he had been so impressed by the construction of the Three Gorges Dam that he had visited Wuhan and spent a day at the dam. “The speed with which you constructed it and the scale inspired me,” he said. He said that “India and China acted as engines for global economic growth for 1600 years out of the past 2000 years,” clearly intending that this relationship should continue and expand.
Xi said that he had accepted an invitation to hold another such informal meeting in India next year.
A China Daily article today noted that Deng Xiaoping told Rajiv Ghandi when he visited China in 1998 that, if there were to be an Asian Century, it would require close and sustained cooperation between China and Russia. It appears that time is finally at hand.

China To Drive Int’l Syria Rebuild

April 30, 2018 – More than 140 factories have restarted
production in Damascus’s Fadlon industrial zone in southern
Syria, and another 100 production facilities are being repaired
now, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported today. The
industrial zone of Fadlon comprises half of the industries of
Damascus. Textile, chemical, clothing, medicine, steel, and
others have rehabilitated their facilities and begun production.
The rehabilitation of water, electricity, sewerage, telephone
lines, and other necessary services have assisted this zone in
going back to work and its factories to produce again.

Xie Xiaoyan, the Chinese government’s Special Envoy on the
Syrian issue, has signalled Beijing’s willingness “to do its
best” to contribute to ordinary Syrians returning to a normal
life. The envoy estimated that at least $260 billion in aid money
is needed to restore the devastated nation, and that this is a
task for the entire international community: “Many people have
died; millions have lost their homes or become refugees, and they
all need humanitarian aid. As a member of the UN Security
Council, China has always paid attention to providing
humanitarian assisstance both to Syrian citizens and refugees in
the form of goods, medicine, food, and money.”

Xie promised that “China is ready to become a driving force
in this process and to involve its companies in the restoration
work in Syria as soon as the security situation improves there.
Apart from China and Russia, the countries of the region should
also take part in the process, because only together will we be
able restore Syria,” Xie said.


Afghanistan Looks to India and China To Build Rail

May 1 -Informed sources in New Delhi have told the Indian daily, {The Statesmen} that senior officials from India and China will meet soon to discuss “the broad contours” of their joint
cooperation on development projects in Afghanistan which Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping discussed at their two-day informal summit in Wuhan last week. Afghani Ministry of Economy spokesperson Suhrab Bahman gave an idea of the scope of development that could result on Apirl 29, reporting that one of the joint projects will be the construction of a railroad connecting Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Iran and China. That exciting potential was reported by Afghan TOLOnews.  Bahman said, in TOLOnews’ report, “that China is interested in giving Afghanistan more share in the ‘Belt and Road’ project connecting China with Central Asia.”

Such joint work will proceed, even though India is not likely to formally endorse the Belt and Road Initiative by name anytime soon, similar stories appearing today in {The Statesman} and {New Indian Express} report.

The {New Indian Express} cited Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou’s statement to reporters after the Wuhan summit, that “when it comes to connectivity, China and India do not have any principled disagreements.” He said that the two leaders “did not talk about the specific wording or expression of the Belt and Road, many things China and India are planning to do are in keeping with what the Belt and Road Initiative stands for.”

Afghanistan signed a Memorandum of Understanding with China on the BRI in May 2016, while India is already helping build a road and rail network to connect the Iranian port of Chandahar with Afghanistan, and then up north into Central Asia.

The other “connectivity” project where India and China are already cooperating cited by both newspapers is the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar (BCIM) economic corridor. China considers the BCIM as an important part of the Belt and Road; Indian diplomats emphasize that the project started before the BRI.

The {New Indian Express} asked a senior Indian diplomat if the joint project in Afghanistan implies that India might take a “softer” stance toward the BRI when Modi attends the June Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in China?

“Most unlikely,” the diplomat said. “Given that we have elections next year, any such move would be seen as a climbdown by the electorate. We will continue to oppose the CPEC [China-Pakistan Economic Corridor]. But does that mean we can’t join other segments of the BRI if they align with our own interests?”


Webcast: The Empire Based in London Won’t Give Up: They Must, and Can Be Defeated

With one provocation after another, each more transparently false than the previous one, the war faction of City of London imperial oligarchs and their Wall Street neo-con/neo-lib partners continue their efforts to sabotage the potential of the New Paradigm, which is emerging in Eurasia to be a worldwide movement, with breathtaking speed. Though Russiagate, the Skripal poisoning, and the Douma chemical weapons False Flag hoax have been exposed as originating in the diseased minds of British intelligence circles, they are at it again, with Bibi Netanyahu claiming he has “proof” that Iran never ended its nuclear program, attempting to trap the U.S. into yet another disastrous war in the Middle East, and possible nuclear confrontation with Russia.

It is not enough to expose each fraud as it emerges. The unique role of the Schiller Institute, especially through the global role played by our founder, Helga Zepp LaRouche, is to focus attention on the intent of those engaging in these provocations, to pre-empt them from fulfilling that intent, which is to keep the world divided, at war, so that a unilateral degenerate Trans-Atlantic “elite” can remain the dominant power in the world.

But their power is diminishing, as they have increasingly been forced to act in their own name, thereby exposing themselves. Their ability to keep control has also been diminishing, due to the challenge from the New Silk Road, and the New Paradigm it represents.

In the last weeks, diplomatic and economic events and summits have greatly advanced the New Paradigm. It is essential that the voice of the Schiller Institute be magnified, through an expanding membership and a growing audience for our weekly webcast. Join us this week with your host Harley Schlanger, and help us expand the numbers who catch the New Silk Road Spirit.


Successful Culture Event in Dresden, Germany

On April 21st, the Schiller Institute organized a cultural event in Dresden under the title “A Dialogue of Cultures along the New Silk Road,” with 150 attendees.

Lasting peace, stability and shared well-being should, of course, be at the heart of international relations. But this does not start at the negotiating table of politicians, but in all our hearts. And what could not unite the souls and hearts of our peoples better than the idea of ​​truth, freedom and beauty. Cultural contributions, Music and poetry from different countries and cultures established a new standard of optimism among the audience

This event was a proof, that a qualitatively new world order {is} possible; that we, by seeing our own true self reflected in the beauty of other cultures, find that higher “placement,” from which that persisting nightmare of geopolitics can be overcome, once and forever!

This is the greeting from the Chinese Ambassador to Germany which was read to the audience:

Greetings from his Excellency, the Ambassador Shi of China, to the Schiller Institutes’ “Dialogue of Cultures along the New Silk Road”:
I am really pleased with the fact, that the Schiller Institute conducts a cultural dialogue centered around the implications of the New Silk Road. When the President of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping, presented the historical initiative of the “One Belt, One Road,” it was met with broad approval and support by the international community. During the past several years, the New Silk Road attracted a vast attention globally as an economic and infrastructure program. Yet, it is not only an economic corridor, but a road of a cultural exchange as well.

From a historical viewpoint, the New Silk Road began as a commodities trade route, but its significance reaches far beyond trade and became a major corridor for the communication of the
different cultures of the world. Via the Silk Road, the cultural centers of mankind were able to interact with each other through large distances, and by doing so, the great civilizations like
China, India, Arabia, and Europe learned from one another and respected each other. None of these civilizations at the time lost their independence or space for their own development because of the connectivity through the Silk Road, quite the opposite. The mutual learning enabled the countries to absorb additional knowledge and to gain new potency within their own peculiarities.

In the course of worldwide globalization and digitalization, a transcultural and supra-regional exchange and cooperation became ever more important. China wants to deliberate, build, and
profit from the “One Belt, One Road” initiative in a shared manner with all the countries alongside the New Silk Road. Thus, not only the economies of the countries along the road ought to be developed, but also the cultural exchange between China and the other nations. Until the end of 2017, China already signed more than 300 agreements for cultural exchanges with the governments of the countries along the New Silk Road, and implemented plans to that effect. Multilateral cultural cooperation mechanisms within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, as well as among China and countries of eastern Europe, of Arabic nations, and of the ASEAN states, have already been established. This certainly contributed to the aim of bringing the people alongside the New Silk Road closer together.

It is my hope that the participating experts and artists are able to openly and profoundly exchange their views and thoughts within this dialogue, and I wish you all success.


Webcast: False Flags, Fake News, Regime Change In Washington Exposed As Made In London

With each passing day, revelations are emerging which show that not only are the “news stories” proliferating in the media about Presidents Trump, Putin, Xi, and Syria’s Assad full of lies, but come from London-directed networks, which are out to sabotage the potential for peace through development, which is the aim of the new “win-win” paradigm which is emerging with the New Silk Road global program. These networks, centered in the City of London, British intelligence and the May government provided blatantly false reports on the Skripal poisoning and the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria. Working with Macron of France, they pushed for an attack on Syria and Russia, before an investigation was begun, much less completed.

These are the same networks which are “colluding” with U.S. intelligence circles associated with the Obama administration, to carry out a regime change in Washington, D.C.

Due to their deceit, the world edged closer to World War III, with the strikes last Friday, April 13, against Syria. While the attacks were limited this time, probably due to the influence of Trump, Defense Secretary Mattis and Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Dunford, as well as clear warnings coming from Moscow, these networks will not stop until they have successfully carried out regime change in Washington and Damascus, as well as in Moscow and Beijing.

Associates of the Schiller Institute have been at the forefront in exposing these lies, while explaining their origin, in London, but also their cause: the rejection by these circles of the New Paradigm, which Helga Zepp LaRouche has played a leading role in bringing into existence. Listen to Mrs. LaRouche’s webcast this Thursday, hosted by Harley Schlanger, to get the latest on these developments, and a strategy for victory over these desperate imperial forces.
