What Could Have Happened in Geneva, and What Must Happen in the World

That even the relatively uneventful meeting between Presidents Biden and Putin in Geneva can accurately be hailed as a step forward, speaks to the absolutely terrible situation the world is in. Hu Xijin, the editor-in-chief of Global Times, expressed it in a tweet: “The meeting itself sends a strong signal. Both want to end the worst period of U.S.-Russian relations post-Cold War. At the very least, achieve low-level stability in their bilateral ties and avoid new uncontrollable conflicts. And this is probably the only product of the meeting.”

Our aspirations must be so much greater!

Will Hyperinflation Wipe Out Your Bank Account? Spreading Syphilis is Not the Answer!

The Midwest LaRouche Organization hosted Independent LaRouche Candidate for Senate in NY, Diane Sare, for this week's zoom conference call to discuss the imminent hyperinflationary blowout of the Trans-Atlantic financial system. The Federal Reserve has 10 times more "assets" on its balance sheet today than it did in 2008, and double what it had one year ago. The big banks are holding twice as much in deposits as they are lending. Moreover, counting drug money and prostitution in the GDP will only make matters worse, and obliterate our already disintegrating cities.

Putin and Biden Take a Step Back from War: Mainstream Media Protests!

We should not overstate the case -- the outcome of the Putin-Biden summit did not resolve most of the outstanding issues, which the War Hawks in the Military Industrial Complex have been inventing and hyping, to bring the two countries to the brink of war. However, the joint statement they issued included an extremely important agreement: "Today, we reaffirm the principle that a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought." See if you can find this reported in the English-language mainstream media, which instead demeaned the summit, and tried to provoke confrontation between the two leaders, exactly as they tried following the July 2018 summit between Putin and President Trump in Helsinki.

A Step Back from the Brink – and What It Now Takes To Win a Durable Peace

PDF

U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin emerged from their four-hour summit discussion today in Geneva, Switzerland, to present to the world a “U.S-Russia Presidential Joint Statement on Strategic Stability,” whose brief text includes the following central commitment: “Today, we reaffirm the principle that a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.” That exact phrase was used by Presidents Reagan and Gorbachev in their famous November 1985 summit at the height of the Cold War, in the very same location.

Putin-Biden Summit: What the Press Is Not Telling You

The Summit between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden could not come at a more critical point in history. Not only current history, but universal history. The Peace of Westphalia in 1648 ended the decades of warfare in Europe by establishing the concept of national sovereignty between nations, based on the principle that a nation’s national interest rests on the interests of the others. This principle has been breached many times, and horrible wars fought as a result, and none more deadly and destructive as the global wars of the 20th “Century of War,” as Lyndon LaRouche called it.

Will the Putin-Biden Summit Initiate a Prospect for Improved Relations?

The meeting today in Geneva has been played down by both sides.  Yet, the fact they are meeting is significant.  It comes in the midst of worsening relations between the U.S. and Russia.  And it follows a not-fully successful effort by the Anglo-American geopolitical War Hawks to pull the "Alliance of Democratic States" into an agreement for heightened confrontation with Russia and China.  While some of the rhetoric was harsh, with wild accusations against both states, it is also clear that not everyone was buying into the idea that more sanctions and bluster against them would accomplish anything, especially when no real evidence backing the charges against Putin and Xi has been presented.  In the absence of a solid front in favor of heightened confrontation against Russia and China, is it possible that an actual dialogue might begin?

G7: The World Will Little Note, Nor Long Remember What They Said There

To quote a Chinese professor’s acerbic and brutally accurate observation, just before the G7 heads of state and government met at a resort in an impoverished area of Great Britain: “Far from confronting China, these Western leaders are only in confrontation with reality, and with the interests of the American people and the people of the world at large.” Trying to impose an insane new financial bubble called “Green New Deal,” based on deindustrializing advanced economies and making developing nations unsurvivable, the leaders of the trans-Atlantic democracies are too worried about bailing out their own banking systems to offer anything of value to the rest of the world. And as for the “rules” of their “rules-based order,” the same observer aptly said, “The time when a small group of countries can impose the rules on others, is past.”

The Lunacy of G7-NATO Leaders on Display in this Week's Summits

Instead of engaging the leaders of Russia and China in a serious deliberation on what to do about the multiplicity of crises affecting the world, the G7 and NATO leaders put forward a series of unserious, if not downright lunatic proposals, during their confabs over the last days. Their proposals for global infrastructure and battling the COVID pandemic were not serious, but instead would continue the policies which have left infrastructure -- including that of public health -- incapable of serving the needs of nations and their people. As for their strategic communique, it is more of the same false accusations against Russia and China, to justify military buildup and geopolitical confrontation. Where are the statesmen and women, when they're needed? They will be at the Schiller Institute online conference, June 26-7. Join us!

Will Human History End Now in a Tragedy, or Triumph in a New Paradigm? Learn from Nicholas of Cusa

Helga Zepp-LaRouche addresses an audience of young people from around the world on the method of thinking discovered by Nicholas of Cusa.

“[Nicholas of Cusa] developed a method of thinking, of thinking something completely new… It was the idea that human reason has the capability to define a solution on a completely different and higher level, than those on which all the conflicts and contradictions arose. It addresses the capacity to think a One, which is of a higher magnitude and power, than the Many. And once you train your mind to think that way [according to the coincidence of opposites], you have the inerrant key to creativity, and one can apply this way of thinking to virtually all realms of thought.” —Helga Zepp-LaRouche

Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder and chairman of the Schiller Institute, and one of the world’s leading Cusa experts, insists that to get out of the onrushing New Dark Age, mankind must learn from the father of the 15th Century Golden Renaissance, Nicholas of Cusa. We must start with the underlying crisis: that in the method of thinking.
