How a Collapsing Global Economy is Fueling the War Drive

In reviewing the global strategic situation today, Helga Zepp-LaRouche commented that the degree of lying coming from governments, official institutions and the media has reached the point where the stated goal of British propagandists, of being able to "out-Goebbels Goebbels", has been achieved. The provocations against Russia and China, which have the intent of regime change, are backed by shameless lying. The IMF report on the economy, which proclaims the U.S. as the "economic engine" for a world boom, skips over their own figures which show growing impoverishment in both the formerly advanced and developing sector nations.

Reject the IMF Hype-erinflation, and the British Green New Deal

Going into its annual Spring meeting the IMF has spread worldwide disinformation by claiming the United States is the “world economic engine for 2021,” set to grow 6.5% in GDP, import the whole world’s goods, and so on. What kind of an “economic engine” does not export capital goods to industrialize the developing countries; makes no investment in building healthcare and hospital systems when they are being overwhelmed by pandemic in scores of nations; refuses even to export from its overproduction of effective vaccines? And look at what the IMF itself forecasts will happen if such a “U.S. boom” does occur, and causes inflation and higher long-term interest rates—a dangerous flow of capital out of the most affected developing nations like India and Brazil and, explosively, into the well-named “everything bubble” of American corporate and household debt!

War and Depression? Or Real Economic Growth?

The relentless escalation of war provocations, when paired with the lying reports of a "coming economic boom" -- both the product of the diseased minds of those running the "Military Industrial Complex" and pushing the "Great Reset" -- is a threat to the people of all nations.  No matter what economists say, a growing cancerous debt bubble is not a sign of economic health!  As we forecast, these utopian schemes can be derailed.  One example is the rejection by India's Energy Minister of the "net zero" plan pushed by the Biden administration.  To join us in defeating the push coming from the bankrupt Trans-Atlantic establishment, order your copy of our report, "The Great Leap Backward" at this link:  https://larouchepub.com/special_report/2021/green-new-deal/index.html

India Helps Crush the Great Reset and `Green New Deal’

In a second “No”, India’s Energy Minister Raj Kumar Singh said at an IEA meeting on climate change that “net zero” carbon is “pie in the sky” no matter when you pledge it for. At a meeting supposed to be preparatory to the COP26 in Scotland in November, Singh said, “I would call it, and I’m sorry to say this, but it is just pie in the sky. What we hear is that … 2060 is far away and if the people emit at the rate they are emitting the world won’t survive, so what are you going to do in the next five years…. You have 800 million people who don’t have access to electricity. You can’t say that they have to go to net zero. They have the right to develop, they want to build skyscrapers and have a higher standard of living; you can’t stop it.”

U.S., NATO War Hawks Pushing Ukraine-Russia Military Confrontation

As charges and counter-charges proliferate, and military forces are in motion, the danger of war in eastern Ukraine is increasing daily.  While blaming Russia for "malign intent", the actual cause of the tension is the geopolitical intent for regime change in Russia, which has escalated since the Maidan coup in Ukraine in February 2014.  President Biden was Obama's point man in organizing  that coup, and has a long record as an anti-Russian war hawk, typified by his recent admission that he believes Russian President Putin is a "killer."  One of his top advisors on Russia, Michael Carpenter, has openly praised the self-avowed neo-Nazi and former top Ukrainian security official and member of parlaiment Andriy Parubiy.

‘Doing Good, in Service of The Common Good’

On the occasion of Holy Week and Easter, statesman Lyndon LaRouche more than once wrote of the mission of all mankind. On March 29, 2002, he addressed it in his, “Easter, A Time For Reflection,” a substantial work, beginning with the question, that “Now, in a time of great menace … How should all peoples, of whatever religious profession, from around the world, view the leading developments of these days?” What should we do? After in-depth consideration, he wrote, "To sum up the point to be emphasized on this occasion, consider the following:

“The doctrine of the immortality of the soul has a rich history, from Plato’s Socratic dialogues, through the role of the same Platonic notion of the term agapē expressed summarily by Paul’s I Corinthians 13, and permeating the Gospel of John. It is the concept, translated as promotion of the general welfare of present and future generations, in the U.S. Constitution, and, otherwise, the notion of doing good in service of the common good.”

The Moral Fitness To Survive

Increasingly, around the world, nations and individuals are asking if the United States, the Western world generally, has the moral fitness to survive. NATO is mobilizing forces for a war with Russia, and declaring itself no longer an “Atlantic” defense institution, but a global force that will confront China militarily, as well as Russia. Of course, neither Russia nor China is in any way threatening anyone outside their borders, but then, neither was Iraq, nor Libya, nor Syria, nor Yemen. And yet, Iraq and Libya and Syria, three of the most developed and productive states in Southwest Asia, have been bombed into oblivion, and the Western forces responsible have done nothing to help in reconstruction—to the contrary, Mike Pompeo’s “Caesar Act” forbids any reconstruction of Syria, and will sanction any country which does so. The result is death and starvation, the most impoverished nation on Earth, according to the UN, although Yemen is perhaps worse, and is still suffering from a foreign war of terrorist destruction armed by the U.S., which is denying it food and fuel.

Science and Agape: The LaRouche Development Corridor and the Prevention of War

Join us LIVE on Saturday, April 3 at 2pm EDT for a discussion between Harley Schlanger, Diane Sare and Dennis Speed. The difference between LaRouche's global economic development policies and the Great Reset can be summed up in Abraham Lincoln's Easter message to the world: "With malice toward none, with charity for all; with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right let us strive on to finish the work we are in to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan ~ to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."

An 'Alliance for Development’ Can Succeed

Next Tuesday, April 6, based in Vienna, talks are slated to take place involving the principals of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to move things in some way out of the present danger zone, including the potential to lift the sanctions against Iran. This came out of an online meeting today, based in Vienna, among five of the original six JCPOA principals (the P-5 plus one)—China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and Germany, without the U.S.), and Iran, hosted by the European Union, which issued a statement on the April 6 meeting as the next step. The EU said the April 6 meeting will take place, “in order to clearly identify sanctions lifting and nuclear implementation measures, including through convening meetings of the relevant expert groups.” EU officials are to confer with the U.S. separately.
