A New, Successful Economic System Has Been Created; America Must Change To Join It
The Paris "Climate Agreement" from which President Donald Trump has withdrawn the United States, is not the "world order," however much major media in the United States and Europe want everyone to bow down before it. Life without carbon is not the way forward for humanity or the planet. Human life moving rapidly out into the Solar System, is.
The really successful new world order being consolidated is an economic and scientific cooperation system: the New Silk Road. This is the accelerating investments and design of transformative new infrastructure projects and scientific advances, being knitted together at China's initiative, all across Eurasia, Africa, and planned in South America as well. "The Marshall Plan times 20," some call it. It is an order more and more actively supported by Russia and other major nations, as well as many others, because it is actually triggering economic progress, productivity, new employment, to the mutual benefit of all nations participating. As the "Silk Road Lady," Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche says, it is becoming the World Land-Bridge. Thus it is open to the United States to join, rebuilding but also greatly expanding and modernizing its own economic infrastructure and industry.
President Trump is absolutely right in his intention that the United States cooperate fully with China and Russia. And in his intention that the United States should again become a great industrial power, a great scientific and technological power, a great space exploration power collaborating with the other space-faring nations.
"These are intentions — what are his results?" say the commentators. That question should be directed to the American people. China and other Eurasian powers are building high-speed and mag-lev metro systems, exploring the Moon including its far side, planning for Mars, planning finally to span Africa and South America with high-speed rail and power networks, building small mobile floating nuclear plants....
Do Americans, dealing with public infrastructure breakdown, economic despair, and opioid epidemics, believe that these things can be done? That is the real question regarding President Trump's intentions, and results.
It is the American people who have to get Glass-Steagall through Congress to stop Wall Street's strangling the U.S. economy. The American people have to demand "American System economics"; immediately a national bank for infrastructure. More Americans are trying to become NASA astronauts than ever before. But it is the American people who have to demand a rapidly expanded space exploration program and new technologies around fusion energy.
America must join the New Silk Road. President Trump has an intention — forget his results thus far — this is for the American people to do if they want the United States to be great again.
