30 years ago 0n November 9, 1989, the Berlin wall came down. The anniversary marks a profound moment today where the irreconcilable differences between the hope expressed in 1989, which is embodied now by the New Paradigm, and the doom of geopolitics are coming to odds. The Schiller Institute in NYC celebrated the coincidence of the Fall of the Wall, Schiller’s birthday and the 35 anniversary of the founding of the Schiller Institute with a triumphant demonstration of beauty, outflanking the degenerate culture still dominating political discourse in the United States and Europe. Helga Zepp-LaRouche keynotes the event, followed by musical offerings from Schubert and Brahms and poetry by Schiller and Shakespeare.

Webcast: Learning the Lesson of the Lost Opportunity of 1989—This Time It Can Be Different! https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/11/10/webcast-learning-the-lesson-of-the-lost-opportunity-of-1989-this-time-it-can-be-different/ https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/11/10/webcast-learning-the-lesson-of-the-lost-opportunity-of-1989-this-time-it-can-be-different/#respond Sun, 10 Nov 2019 15:57:54 +0000 https://schillerinstitute.com/?p=56213/ What really happened in 1989, when the Berlin Wall came down, and what can we learn from investigating the events of that historic period? In reviewing the reality of what actually happened thirty years ago, when the Berlin Wall was brought down, in contrast to the official narrative put forward by the neoliberals and geopoliticans, Helga Zepp LaRouche makes a passionate case for why this time will be different. The chance for world historic change exists briefly, but this time, she says, the opportunity is bigger. In contrast to 1989, when only the forces associated with her husband, Lyndon LaRouche, and the Schiller Institute, had a strategic plan, today there is the Belt-and-Road Initiative, and a growing recognition that a new crash is coming, and that sticking with the Old Paradigm imposed by the British Empire would be deadly.

She presents the decisive issues of 1989 as one who participated in them, and explains how the British Empire survived then, through assassinations, threats, and corruption, including the jailing of her husband. But the New Paradigm which is emerging globally, shaped by the ideas of LaRouche, is increasingly seen as the only viable option today, as the danger of a new crash has increased. Those defending the old order in Europe and the U.S. are increasingly exposed, with the investigations into the origins of Russiagate bringing out more evidence daily.

Now is the time to read the works of Schiller, she said, to become aware of the potential for each human being—including yourself!—to become a beautiful soul, and to use this discovery to become a force in making history, to make sure that humanity does not miss this opportunity.

Webcast: Trump Impeachment Boomerangs. Is “Whistleblower” Biden’s Ukraine Case Officer? https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/11/03/webcast-people-are-in-rebellion-globally-against-the-collapsing-neo-liberal-system/ https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/11/03/webcast-people-are-in-rebellion-globally-against-the-collapsing-neo-liberal-system/#respond Sun, 03 Nov 2019 18:38:00 +0000 https://schillerinstitute.com/?p=56184/ Helga opened her weekly webcast by insisting that people actually watch President Trump’s rally in Tupelo, Mississippi, as they will see an entirely different dynamic from what is conveyed in the media and by his opponents. A significant section of the U.S. electorate responds enthusiastically to his presentations, as he continues to emphasize ending the Bush-Obama wars, while fighting the conspiracy being run against him. She called the Democrats push for impeachment a “high-risk game…which can backfire.”

What we are living through is an incredible historic moment, a showdown between millions worldwide who are angry, who are being mobilized in the U.S. by Trump, against the British Empire, which has captured the Democratic Party. She reminded viewers that her husband said, when Trump was elected, that this was not a U.S. event, but global, as we see now with the mass strike sweeping the world. She reviewed developments around the impeachment, including the fraud of Schiff’s “whistleblower”. She pointed to progress in Syria, based on Trump-Putin collaboration, and trade talks with China, to show what Trump is doing that is causing the hysteria behind impeachment.

In reviewing the ongoing financial/economic collapse, and the hare-brained schemes of Lagarde, Carney, et.al., which will only make things worse, she pointed to the unique solutions developed by her husband Lyndon LaRouche. Now is not the time for passivity, she concluded, but for you, the viewer, to get involved and support our organization.

Webcast: The Tables Have Turned on the Coup Plotters and Global Central Bankers https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/10/27/webcast-the-tables-have-turned-on-the-coup-plotters-and-global-central-bankers/ https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/10/27/webcast-the-tables-have-turned-on-the-coup-plotters-and-global-central-bankers/#respond Sun, 27 Oct 2019 16:23:07 +0000 https://schillerinstitute.com/?p=56155/ Helga Zepp LaRouche provided a fascinating assessment of the changes sweeping the globe, and the opportunity these changes have made possible to realize cooperation to usher in a new era of peace and development.

Among the processes she highlighted are:

1. The significance of the Barr-Durham investigation moving into a criminal inquiry, putting the whole British-Obama intel apparatus in the spotlight, while exposing the fraud of the “Ukraine impeachment” drive;
2. The acceleration of the financial crisis, and the de facto acknowledgement of the central bankers themselves that they have no alternative but to continue the same failed policies which created this crisis;
3. The unrest spreading against the neoliberal austerity policies ordered by the central banks, to protect their collapsing system;
4. The realignment underway in the entire Middle East, as a result of Trump’s decision to coordinate with Russia to end the “endless wars”;
5. Despite the continuing anti-China idiocy on display in VP Pence’s latest speech, even he acknowledged the positive potential for a U.S.-China trade agreement, as this is what President Trump wants;
6. The Russia-Africa summit, which provides a vision for the U.S. and Europe of what is possible if those nations would drop their imperial axioms.

Ignore the media, which is trying to do public relations for the criminal British imperial networks—get active with the Schiller Institute, as the time has come for the spreading of the ideas and method of Lyndon LaRouche.

Webcast: The Secret of How Trump Outflanked the War Party https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/10/18/webcast-the-secret-of-how-trump-outflanked-the-war-party/ https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/10/18/webcast-the-secret-of-how-trump-outflanked-the-war-party/#respond Fri, 18 Oct 2019 20:51:33 +0000 https://schillerinstitute.com/?p=56122/ This week Helga discusses Trump’s latest moves to end the regime change wars which he was elected to do and contrasts the American population’s support for President Trump shown at various rallies throughout the country vs. the mainstream media’s attempt to project a completely different reality. With a fragile ceasefire on the Syrian/Turkish border, now is the time to begin the reconstruction of the region by extending the Belt and Road Initiative into the Middle East!

Helga also emphasizes the role our movement plays in the US and in Europe to educate the population on the impending global financial crisis. THIS is the real context of the rush to impeach Trump. He’s proven he’s willing to turn over the chessboard on the decades-long regime change policies of the military-industrial complex, what guarantee does Wall Street have that he won’t do the same to them as the financial crisis continues to spread?

It’s now more important than ever to organize a true economic renaissance on the planet, beginning by reorganizing Wall Street, and allowing sovereign nations to collaborate on their own economic destinies.

Webcast: The System is Collapsing, That is the Cause for Optimism! https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/10/12/webcast-the-system-is-collapsing-that-is-the-cause-for-optimism/ https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/10/12/webcast-the-system-is-collapsing-that-is-the-cause-for-optimism/#respond Fri, 11 Oct 2019 23:59:51 +0000 https://schillerinstitute.com/?p=56098/ Zepp LaRouche opened by discussing what she described as the historic press conference by President Trump on Oct. 9, when he made clear he intended to reverse the last 50 years of geopolitical wars. Referring to Pres. Eisenhower’s identification of the “Military Industrial Complex” as the driver for war, Trump ended with a moving personal statement, identifying the costs of these wars, in terms of American lives lost, as well as those millions lost on the other side in the wars.

She came back several times to the importance of two things: first, President Trump must now work with Russia, through the Astana process, and bring in China, to end the wars with real economic development; second, that the guide to this development process should be the life work of Lyndon LaRouche, whose exoneration is the necessary ingredient to make it work.

LaRouche’s voice is important additionally, as the financial collapse is on, and it has been his scientific approach, embodied in his Four Laws, which is needed to prevent the collapse from unleashing misery globally. We must address directly the panic and cultural pessimism which dominates the population — now is the time that our optimistic view, based on an understanding of the true, creative nature of man, shapes the discussion.

Webcast: As Regime Changers Go Wild, a Revolutionary Spirit Spreads Worldwide https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/10/06/webcast-it-is-a-coup-exposing-british-lies-sparks-optimism-internationally/ https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/10/06/webcast-it-is-a-coup-exposing-british-lies-sparks-optimism-internationally/#respond Sun, 06 Oct 2019 21:13:50 +0000 https://schillerinstitute.com/?p=56070/

Drawing a sharp contrast between the actions of crazed central bankers, and the eco-fascists and regime changers they have funded and unleashed, Helga Zepp LaRouche spoke of the spirit of revolutionary optimism sweeping the globe. The effort to impeach Trump, she said, may very well backfire, as the investigation into the coup, by Attorney General Barr and prosecutor Durham, continues, with meetings in the UK and Italy, to smoke out the real foreign interference in the 2016 U.S. election — which was NOT by Russia!

At the same time, the attempt to use the terroristic rampage by “a virulent and loud minority” to trigger regime change in China will not succeed, as the vast majority of Chinese people are happy, and optimistic about their future, which she observed during her two visits to speak at conferences there this year. The intervention by the final British Governor of Hong Kong, makes clear the British role behind the coup efforts, and the Chinese should demand a full investigation at the U.N. of London’s role.

In contrast, she spoke of the SI conference in New York on October 5, as part of the International Observe the Moon Day, in which she and other speakers spoke of the New Paradigm emerging, with the theme “Mankind as a Galactic Species: The Necessary Alternative to War.” She called on viewers to catch the “healthy disease, Moon Fever” — “Don’t sit on the fence,” she said, the optimism needed to win comes from moving into the “New Frontiers of Knowledge.”

On a lighter note, she referred to the successful ironic, Swiftian intervention at the AOC town meeting by a LaRouchePAC organizer, pointing out that AOC demonstrated that she is “not the smartest cookie on the planet.”

Webcast: This is an Unbelievable Historic Moment—WE MUST CHANGE THE AGENDA COMPLETELY! https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/09/25/webcast-this-is-an-unbelievable-historic-moment-we-must-change-the-agenda-completely/ https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/09/25/webcast-this-is-an-unbelievable-historic-moment-we-must-change-the-agenda-completely/#respond Wed, 25 Sep 2019 18:14:20 +0000 https://schillerinstitute.com/?p=55965/ In reviewing the onrush of events, Helga Zepp LaRouche said today that the only way to understand what is happening is to know that the financial system is blowing up, and the West is undergoing an historic breakdown crisis.  The push for the impeachment of Trump, which Nancy Pelosi finally agreed to undertake, on a completely flimsy pretext, is being done out of fear that Trump will not accept the agenda imposed from the City of London.  This agenda is on display at the U.N. General Assembly session.  While much of the corrupt media attention, and that of many world leaders, was on the rage-filled remarks of Greta Thunberg, the actual agenda was laid out by Bank of England chairman Mark Carney — the same person who pushed for “regime change in global financial markets” at the recent Jackson Hole, Wyoming meeting, sponsored by the Federal Reserve.

She discussed the present liquidity crisis as a sign of the desperation of the bankers, and the breakdown crisis that it reflects, as the real reason why they have been escalating their drive for fascist economic policies, disguised as addressing a “climate” crisis.  The eco-fascist agenda was first identified by Lyndon LaRouche, based on his studies in the 1950s and ’60s, which led to his rejection of a mathematical approach to economics.  LaRouche’s analysis, and the solutions he designed, including his Four Laws of physical economy, are needed today.

Zepp LaRouche called on viewers to organize with the new pamphlet, “CO2 Reduction Is a Mass Murder Policy…”  In closing she discussed why, instead of vilifying China, people should ask themselves why China is advancing today, while the west is collapsing.

Petition: Who Owns the Principle of Gravity? Spying on Chinese Scientists & Students Will Not Make Us Smarter, Healthier or Safer https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/09/20/petition-who-owns-the-principle-of-gravity-spying-on-chinese-scientists-students-will-not-make-us-smarter-healthier-or-safer/ https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2019/09/20/petition-who-owns-the-principle-of-gravity-spying-on-chinese-scientists-students-will-not-make-us-smarter-healthier-or-safer/#respond Fri, 20 Sep 2019 21:46:51 +0000 https://schillerinstitute.com/?p=55935/ PDF of this petition

On April 26, 2019, FBI Director Christopher Wray gave an address to the Council on Foreign Relations in which he made the astonishing claim that “no country poses a broader, more severe intelligence collection threat than China.” He explained:

“China has pioneered a societal approach to stealing innovation any way it can, from a wide array of businesses, universities, and organizations. They’re doing this through Chinese intelligence services, through state-owned enterprises, through ostensibly private companies, through graduate students and researchers, and through a variety of actors working on behalf of China.”

During his 2018 testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Wray put it this way: “One of the things we’re trying to do is view the China threat as not just a whole-of-government threat, but a whole-of-society threat on their end… And I think it’s going to take a whole-of-society response by us.”

The above quotes are not from a paranoid intelligence officer from the movie Dr. Strangelove, although they sound like it. Hopefully the removal of John Bolton from his post as National Security Advisor will prove to be a step toward sanity in U.S.-China relations, but the danger to world affairs is too great to merely “hope” for a change. The anti-China fear-mongering must stop now.

After the firing of several top Chinese-American scientists, and the deportation of several Chinese post-doctoral students who were working on curing cancer and Huntington’s Disease, as well as the denial of visas to Chinese students trying to return for the new semester at several American universities, the FBI is demanding that university presidents, deans and professors assist in this McCarthyite witch hunt by carefully monitoring—i.e., spying on—the Chinese and Chinese-American students in their institutions, especially if the students are studying science, mathematics, IT or anything else with possible military applications.

Sign the Petition

Has China actually expressed an intent to destroy the United States? Or is it merely that some consider the development of China to be a threat to the United States? Is the threat actually the development of China, or is it the lack of development of the United States?

If a researcher discovers an effective treatment for a deadly disease, wouldn’t it be important to have a dialogue about how best to make this treatment available to those who are suffering, with appropriate patent laws and regulations, as opposed to taking action to halt the dialogue and shut down the research? Today, scientific research and journals are, by nature, international. Many research projects involve teams working in the West and in China, publishing papers together, on two continents. The actions of the FBI and related branches of government to persecute Chinese scientists in the US is nothing less than an assault on science itself.

What about the discovery of a universal principle, like gravity? If China makes the same discovery as an American researcher, or if a Chinese scientist observes an American experiment and tries to replicate it in China, has the principle been “stolen?” Does it no longer exist here because it also exists there? The great Hungarian-American physicist Dr. Edward Teller warned in a September 1987 interview with The Scientist that “exaggerated secrecy will drive away the best people. It is where secrecy gets married to bureaucracy, to doctrine—that is where secrecy does most of its harm.”

If we in the United States fail to act on a discovery of principle, by neglecting to put it into practice—as was the case with mag-lev rail, which was developed at Brookhaven Lab in New York, but never built in the United States—is that the fault of the Chinese?

It is true that China has lifted 800 million people out of poverty in the last 30 years, while deaths from poverty-related diseases have increased dramatically over the same time period in the United States. It is also true that China has landed on the far side of the Moon and sprouted seeds there. China has doubled its budget for fusion research, while in the United States, fusion research has been starved nearly to death for lack of funding.

These developments are not an attack by China on the United States, nor is it China which has prevented us from making desperately needed repairs to basic infrastructure, or investing needed funds in the space program, medical research or other scientific endeavors. This has been the policy of the elected government of the United States for the past 50 years, which is only now beginning to change with the announcement of the Artemis Project for a manned landing on the Moon in 2024.

The stifling of cooperation and dialogue among scientists trying to solve the same problems, especially from varying perspectives, is akin to putting an iron rod through the spokes of the wheels of human progress.

As demonstrated by Socrates, Plato, and Confucius centuries ago, the pathway to true knowledge is through dialogue and free exchange of ideas. Obviously, there will be specific areas of military application that may need to be classified for a period of time. But exploring our solar system and galaxy and curing devastating diseases, such as cancer, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s, are endeavors for the benefit of humankind as a whole. If Americans are not allowed to collaborate with the Chinese in these scientific endeavors, the Chinese will go elsewhere, as they are already doing with their space program.

Open and collaborative international cooperation promotes the self-interest, properly defined, of all people and nations.
