Mankind Is the Only Creative Species! Declaration of the Conference of the Schiller Institute, Oct. 19, 2014 {The following declaration was read by Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche,  and has been transcribed from the audio file.} 

Mankind experiences presently a deep civilizational crisis, where the foundations of  society in many parts of the world have eroded, and established codes of international  relations have broken down. On top of this, we are faced with mortal dangers, each of which  could lead to the potential extinction of the human species.

  • There is first the Ebola pandemic, which is already out of control in Africa, for which  there is no cure, and which is threatening to become more threatening than the Black Death of  the 14th century.
  •  There is second, the terrorist threat for the whole world, and genocide spreading from  the so-called IS Caliphate, not only demonstrating a subhuman barbarism, but explicitly  threatening Russia and China, and therefore, becoming the potential trigger to blow up all of  Southwest Asia and even leading to a new world war.
  • And there is third, the absolute certainty that the completely bankrupt trans-Atlantic  financial system is about to blow up, threatening also to throw much of the world into a Dark Age.

In light of these three mortal dangers, it is a question of life and death of humanity to stop  the immoral and imbecilic policies of geopolitics and confrontation against Russia and China.  Instead, we have to shift the agenda to the common aims of mankind, and work together with  Russia, China, India, and other nations, to defeat these mortal threats.  We call on all forces of reason in Europe and the United States, to join the emerging new  economic order of the BRICS and the New Silk Road. Let’s work to establish an inclusive  peace order, with the participation of every nation on the planet, a peace order for the 21st  century, worthy of mankind as the only known creative species in the universe. Let us grow  up into the adult age of humanity, where love, creativity, and beauty define the values of our  common human family.
