On Saturday Lyndon LaRouche announced a campaign to launch the North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA) program to bring water from Alaska to Mexico by this fall. As he said, what Roosevelt did was to take large infrastructure projects typified by the Tennessee Valley Authority as a crucial aspect of the Four Quarters approach to developing the entire territory of the United States as a sovereign nation state.
LaRouche said, "Today, my choice is to activate NAWAPA: because, NAWAPA is there, it is well defined, as a feasible operation. It transforms the territory of the United States, in the direction of what had been intended, by John Quincy Adams as Secretary of State and by Lincoln."
Today, faced with the destruction of the world's physical economy by the attempt on the part of the Inter-Alpha group to preserve political control over the ongoing, accelerating collapse of the British Empire-controlled monetary system, the launching of NAWAPA is the basis for rescuing the U.S. economy and with it that of the rest of the world.
NAWAPA will be the TVA of the 21st Century. The TVA was successful then and NAWAPA will be successful now.
LaRouche stressed that the launching of NAWAPA is the only chance we have. The program is ready. It is large scale. As such it is sufficient to do the job or to be a provocation to doing the job.
The program, which brings water and develops power capacity from Alaska through Canada down through the United States, particularly west of the 20-inch rainfall line, down into Mexico, will also have an immediate positive effect on the crisis in California.
Also, by launching NAWAPA we will be laying the ground work for the Bering Strait project and the development of a rail system from Alaska to Cape Horn.
Once we launch NAWAPA, the Bering Strait project will gain in political feasibility and with it a global railway development-corridor project linking the major land masses of the planet with the exception of Australia. This is how we will approach Asia and Africa.
With the ouster of Obama by the end of September, the implementation of Glass-Steagall and international fixed exchange rates, and the launching of NAWAPA, in combination with a renaissance in nuclear energy development and the effective orientation towards a manned mission to Mars, we have the basis for rescuing civilization from a New Dark Age.
In discussion with the Basement, Lyndon LaRouche also emphasized that the launching of NAWAPA as our immediate future orientation is also crucial to forecasting. Only by knowing what latent economic potentials must be mobilized can one fully appreciate the current state of collapse and also define concretely what must be done.
With the launching of NAWAPA, this will give us the means by which to understand which elements of the economy are most crucial for understanding the collapse of the economy on the one hand, and which elements are necessary for building up the economy on the other hand.
In order to understand the state of the system that would allow us to forecast the zero point for the system, we have to know what we want to get the system to do.
We have to get a limited model of the key parameters from the standpoint of NAWAPA as the driver. In terms of the NAWAPA economy, you want to contrast the problem and the solution. You want to show what the economy would look like from the standpoint of NAWAPA and what it looks like from the standpoint of the collapse. What will it look like if you don't do anything, and what will it look like if do this probject?
We need to organize NAWAPA as an optimization function. How do we achieve the most benefit for the least damage? What resources can be put into it without hurting the rest of the economy?
What idle capacity can we mobilize? How can we employ laid-off workers? We will need to increase nuclear power for the sake of this project, without hurting the rest of the economy by pulling nuclear power away from other vital aspects of the economy for this project.
The same is true for the state of California as for the national economy. California is a dying economy. We have to compare how it is collapsing and what NAWAPA will mean for reversing that collapse.
We also have to look at what will be the first stages of the project, and at what rate can we phase in new stages of the project. Which stages are of higher priority than others?
We have to look at how these enhancements will affect the rest of the economy.
More to come.
