The Schiller Institute http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com A New Paradigm for the Survival of Civilization Mon, 16 Jul 2018 07:37:55 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Helga Zepp-LaRouche Addresses Institut Mandela Conference in Paris http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/15/helga-zepp-larouche-spricht-bei-konferenz-des-mandela-instituts/ http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/15/helga-zepp-larouche-spricht-bei-konferenz-des-mandela-instituts/#respond Sun, 15 Jul 2018 20:18:51 +0000 http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/15/helga-zepp-larouche-spricht-bei-konferenz-des-mandela-instituts/ PARIS, July 10 – Schiller Institute President Helga Zep-LaRouche was invited on July 6 to address the Institut Mandela for the African Economic and Consular Days in Paris.

Madame Zepp-LaRouche was invited on the subject “Partnership, Inclusive Growth and Infrastructure in Africa” following the publication of her call to the European Union to apply the model of the Singapore summit between President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un to a European development project for Africa. Her appeal, “History Is Now Being Written in Asia! The EU Summit Must Follow the Example of Singapore!” has been being circulated in the African networks in France, as well as throughout Europe.

The video of her remarks is available here  and is being transcribed.

The first panel presented the “Singapore spirit” with the participation of the Ambassador of Eritrea, speaking on the end of the war with Ethiopia and the economic perspective of the biggest free trade zone in Djibouti, for real cooperation in the region.

Following her presentation was Ghana’s Minister Plenipotentiary and Deputy Head of Mission Bonaventure Adjavor at the Paris Embassy, who developed the concept of a new era for Africa–a new era of manufacturing from raw materials, and no longer merely exporting them. He used the example of cocoa, of which Ghana and Ivory Coast have 80% of world production, all of which goes for export. But he described that cocoa can be a primary material for manufacturing many products, including brandy, body lotion, chocolate, etc., and that the policy of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government is to do that.

President Akufo-Addo, then newly elected, is famous for his public lecture to visiting French President Emmanuel Macron during their joint press conference on Dec. 4, 2017, in which Akufo-Addo said Africa “can no longer continue to make policy for ourselves … on the basis of whatever support that the Western world or France, or the European Union can give us…. We have to get away from this mindset of dependency. … Our concern should be what do we need to do in this 21st century to move Africa away from being cap in hand … to have a mindset that says we can do it … and once we have that mindset we’ll see there’s a liberating factor for ourselves.”

Helga Zepp-LaRouche then spoke, defining the long-term perspective for Africa and the world, presenting the World Land-Bridge report and the physical project for Africa within the framework of the Belt and Road dynamic, as in Ethiopia with the high-speed train. She also presented the other projects the Schiller Institute has developed or promoted including the Transaqua project, and the extension of the World Land-Bridge into Africa via a tunnel between Spain and Morocco and/or between Sicily and Tunisia.

The audience was very challenged by the optimistic vision of Africa, as Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche showed the photograph of Africa from space at night, as it is now, and as it would be, all lit up, in 2050.

All 40 people in the room and on the panels were members of institutions, such as the International Organization of La Francophonie, and lawyers, entrepreneurs, public relations, etc.

The next speaker was the president of the Efficiency Club, formed by the Diaspora and first pan-African economic network of Europe. They are trying to stop the flow of remissions from the diaspora to Africa just to help their families survive. He developed the necessity to create a network of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) throughout the continent to provide jobs and not just subsistence on money.

Then a final panel was very interesting, with one of the panelists bringing in the economics of Alexander Hamilton, and how Africa has to go with this manufacturing economy. He also mentioned that Colbert had called Huygens and Cassini to France to develop a real science academy, and asserted that Africa has to do the same today. Many contacts were made … our time is now.

The Institut Mandela is dedicated to the strategic mission of Africa’s emergence as well as the “open society” values of peace through “intellectual diplomacy.” Its proposals are conveyed to public policymakers, the international community, private actors, and civil society, so that they can make visionary decisions. Its fundamental mission is to reorganize intellectually and institutionally the African countries.

The Institut’s activities revolve around six research areas:
Security and Development, Emergence of Africa, Geopolitics and Geostrategy of raw materials, Africanization of democracy, Prospects of African governance, Energy and Environment.

The Mandela Prizes are awarded annually to personalities or institutions to acknowledge their laudable actions in favor of Africa and peace, in the spirit of Pan-Africanism.

Webcast: European Governments Face Existential Crisis, Will They Turn to the New Paradigm For Solutions? http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/12/webcast-european-governments-face-existential-crisis-will-they-turn-to-the-new-paradigm-for-solutions/ http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/12/webcast-european-governments-face-existential-crisis-will-they-turn-to-the-new-paradigm-for-solutions/#respond Thu, 12 Jul 2018 21:08:50 +0000 http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/?p=47329/

The crisis within the European Union never was limited to the ability of Greece, Spain, Italy, or any other nation to repay their debt. Beginning with the Maastricht Treaty, signed in February 1992, Helga Zepp LaRouche and the Schiller Institute have repeatedly pointed out that the EU institutions were badly flawed from the start, by design, as they were created to serve the interests of neo-liberal financial speculators of the City of London and Wall Street, and the unilateralist neo-cons allied with them, not the people of the nations of Europe.

Since Brexit, in country after country in Europe, voters have been in a state of rebellion, rejecting the established parties, just as American voters did in electing Donald Trump, who promised to end the era of corporate free trade policies, austerity, bailouts and regime change wars. Most significant, was Trump’s rejection of the Obama policy of confrontation with Russia and China, which was supported by most EU nations.

Trump’s determination to meet with Russian President Putin, to achieve a cooperative relationship with him, has created a new level of hysteria, with the meeting of the two now set for Helsinki triggering new, even more extreme panic among governments struggling to survive. The resignations this week of top officials in the May government in the U.K. is exemplary of a regime in disarray, as officials are incapable of thinking outside the axioms of the rapidly disintegrating institutions.

Helga Zepp LaRouche was never content to merely point out the shortcomings of these institutions. She has led an effective international campaign, to gain support for a New Paradigm, based on the economic ideas of her husband, Lyndon LaRouche, many of which are now shaping the global development plan of China’s President Xi Jinping, China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

She has played a leading role in introducing the principles behind this plan to Western governments, many of which are now participating on some level in the BRI. Her recent call for the EU to drop its opposition to China’s BRI, and adopt instead the “Singapore example,” to instead work with China to develop Africa, is being discussed in many countries, though many governments are still proving to be incapable of breaking from the constraints of the old paradigm.

Join Mrs. LaRouche your host Harley Schlanger this Thursday, and every Thursday, as she presents the latest update on this dynamic unfolding process, and provides strategic guidance to citizens who wish to move their nations out from under the dictatorship represented by the old, submissive thinking, and bring them into the New Paradigm.

Belt and Road Initiative To Be Focus of Arab-China Meeting http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/09/arabisch-chinesisches-ausenministertreffen-in-beijing/ http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/09/arabisch-chinesisches-ausenministertreffen-in-beijing/#respond Mon, 09 Jul 2018 14:20:06 +0000 http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/09/arabisch-chinesisches-ausenministertreffen-in-beijing/ July 8 -A call for stronger Arab participation in China’s Belt and Road Initiative is expected to be the central result of the July 10 meeting in Beijing of the eighth ministerial conference of the Chinese-Arab States Cooperation Forum (CASCF), according to a feature by China’s Foreign Minister and State Councillor Wang Yi posted in Gulf News. Chinese President Xi Jinping will address the opening ceremony at the Great Hall of the People; the CASCF will be attended by host Foreign Minister Wang Yi, and by the foreign ministers and other ministers representing the 21 Arab countries, as well as the secretary-general of the Arab League, and Kuwait Emir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, he wrote.

“The inception of the CASCF in 2004 has further upgraded China-Arab relations, by adding a new driver in addition to the bilateral channels, and has thus accelerated the growth of China-Arab cooperation across the board,” Wang wrote.

According to China’s Assistant Foreign Minister Chen Xiaodong, Xi’s speech will highlight his country’s desire to develop stronger relations with Arab states, and it will inject new impetus into these relations, improve prospects of cooperation between the two sides, and bring new hopes to the regional peace.

Austrian Proposal for ‘European Silk Road’ http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/06/osterrichischer-vorschlag-europaische-seidenstrase/ http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/06/osterrichischer-vorschlag-europaische-seidenstrase/#respond Fri, 06 Jul 2018 17:40:47 +0000 http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/06/osterrichischer-vorschlag-europaische-seidenstrase/ July 4 —The Vienna Institute of International Comparative Economics (WIIW) has released a proposal for a “European Silk Road” with investments ranging up to €1 trillion over a 10-year period, focussed on two main corridors. The WIIW proposal is addressed in particular to the Austrian government, for an initiative among the EU partner countries, to be launched during Austria’s half-year rotating EU presidency, which began on July 1.

The WIIW proposals delineate the two corridors. One is Between Lyon and Moscow, extended to Barcelona and Lisbon in the west, and to Nishny Novgorod, Samara and Uralsk in the east. The second corridor runs from Milan to Zurich, Vienna, and Budapest, Bucharest, and Constanta, extended eastward to Novorossyisk and Volgograd, with another branch running to Poti, Tbilisi, and Baku. This can, the survey says, create up to 7 million new jobs, in projects of building bridges, railroads, highways, ports, and other infrastructure.

Explaining the survey, WIIW board member Dionys Lehner said that if Europe had plenty of money to stabilize the volatile banking sector after 2008, money should not be held back where infrastructure projects of this importance are concerned. Particularly the Russian aspect of it is of immediate interest for Austria: More than €300 million of new exports for the Austrian economy annually could be expected to result from such a program.

Webcast: Europe Led to New Paradigm by Schiller Institute Conference http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/05/europe-led-to-new-paradigm-by-schiller-institute-conference/ http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/05/europe-led-to-new-paradigm-by-schiller-institute-conference/#respond Thu, 05 Jul 2018 19:39:00 +0000 http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/?p=47121/

The two-day Schiller Institute conference held in Bad Soden, Germany, on June 30-July 1, brought together leaders from around the world, to engage in intense and impassioned deliberation on how to bring a dysfunctional Europe into the New Paradigm. Helga Zepp-LaRouche drafted a blueprint, on June 17, for the European Union (EU), which explained how the “Singapore example” demonstrates that previously antagonistic nations can work together to solve seemingly intractable problems, when they address crises by adopting the New Silk Road Spirit. The European Union, meeting two days before the Schiller conference, unfortunately did not take her advice.

However, the 300+ participants at the Schiller conference heard from officials from Russia, China, the U.S., Nigeria, Yemen and numerous European countries, who are working toward this end. In her keynote, Mrs. LaRouche pointed to the announcement of an upcoming Trump-Putin summit as another potentially transformative event, resulting from the diplomatic efforts associated with the New Silk Road.

Join Mrs. LaRouche and your host Harley Schlanger this Thursday, on her weekly Schiller Institute strategic webcast, as she reports on the results of the conference, and provides insights on how to move ahead, to realize for the world the benefits of the New Paradigm.

Ukraine, Appeal for Registration Won by Progressive Socialist Party http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/05/ukraine-appeal-for-registration-won-by-progressive-socialist-party/ http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/07/05/ukraine-appeal-for-registration-won-by-progressive-socialist-party/#respond Thu, 05 Jul 2018 16:19:16 +0000 http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/?p=47115/ Today, the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine (PSPU), headed by internationally prominent economist Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, won their appeal in a key case–the PSPU’s lawsuit against the Ministry of Justice, for failing to accept the party’s revised Charter and Bylaws. This refusal to register the party is what has kept the PSPU from running candidates, and went along with the thuggery and criminality conducted against party members, activities, and property. A video of the court proceedings, and PSPU statement, were posted on this victory today.

While Dr. Vitrenko speaks in Russian, and the attorney and judge in Ukrainian, Vitrenko’s strong presentation on the exchange over the injustice to the PSPU, between MEP Matteo Zanni (Italy) and EU foreign affairs official Federica Mogherini, is very clear (22:30.) A translation of the notice on www.vitrenko.org:

“On July 4, 2018 the Kyiv District Administrative Appeals Court considered the Progressive Socialists’ appeal of the lower court decision, which had rejected the PSPU’s lawsuit agains the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. “Ever since the Euromaidan regime came to power, a brutal struggle has been under way against the only extra-parliamentary systemic opposition party, the PSPU. The Party’s central office has been seized. Law enforcement agencies have instigated bandit and Nazi gangs against the Party’s leaders and against peaceful protest demonstrations organized by the PSPU. The Police and the SBU [Security Service of Ukraine] fail to investigate or call these thugs to account. “In parallel, the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine has refused to acknowledge and register either the decisions of three congresses of the PSPU, which changed the PSPU Program and Charter in accordance with the requirements of [new] laws, or the new composition of the Party’s Central Committee. The Ministry of Justice has thereby flouted Ukrainian and international law, through its political discrimination against the PSPU. “The Kyiv District Administrative Court, which is the lower court in question, took the side of the Ministry of Justice, with its unlawful decision of March 20, 2018. The PSPU appealed, and now has won, by defending the PSPU’s rights and demonstrating that the Ministry of Justice was politically motivated. “The Party was represented in court by PSPU Chairman, People’s Deputy of Ukraine of the II and III Convocations, Dr. of Economics Natalia Vitrenko.”

Webcast: Trump-Putin Summit Can Change History—Trans-Atlantic Fascist Force Wants To Stop It http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/06/27/webcast-trump-putin-summit-can-change-history-trans-atlantic-fascist-force-wants-to-stop-it/ http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/blog/2018/06/27/webcast-trump-putin-summit-can-change-history-trans-atlantic-fascist-force-wants-to-stop-it/#respond Wed, 27 Jun 2018 20:19:12 +0000 http://newparadigm.schillerinstitute.com/?p=46969/

This week’s strategic webcast with Schiller Institute Founder and President Helga Zepp-LaRouche will discuss the ongoing shift of the world’s strategic center from the collapsing Trans-Atlantic region, to Asia and Eurasia, including an update on the diplomatic front — e.g., the prospects for a Trump-Putin summit — and continuing advances in the Belt-and-Road Initiative.  This perspective stands in sharp contrast to the disintegration and squabbling among western governments, but it also raises the danger of new False Flag operations, Fake News coverage and financial disintegration, by the geopoliticians — both neo-cons and neo-libs — allied with the British Empire, who are engaged in a desperate effort to sabotage the emergence of a New Paradigm.  Her weekly briefings are essential for anyone who wishes to be informed enough to play a role in shaping a better future.
