We Owe This to LaRouche's Work over Long Decades

June 29, 2018

The fake-news media are virtually blacking out the coming Trump-Putin summit—they're finding anything and everything to fill up their front pages instead. Why? Because the summit is already such a massive defeat for them and such a huge victory for us.

But if you want to know what they're really thinking, read the subscription-only "London Times" today, which headlines its story: "Fears Grow over Prospect of Trump 'Peace Deal' with Putin."

"Britain fears that President Trump will undermine Nato by striking a 'peace deal' with President Putin when the pair meet next month. Cabinet ministers are worried that Mr. Trump may be persuaded to downgrade US military commitments in Europe, compromising Nato countries' defence against Russian aggression. Officials are also concerned that he could hand Mr. Putin a propaganda victory by cancelling or changing the alliance's planned military exercises....

"One cabinet minister said: 'What we're nervous of is some kind of Putin-Trump 'peace deal' suddenly being announced. We could see Trump and Putin saying, "Why do we have all this military hardware in Europe?" and agreeing to jointly remove that.' They added that the politics of any such move by Mr. Trump would be hard to navigate: 'It's hard to be against peace, but would it be real peace?'"

An attached earlier story from June 21 says, "The prospect of a meeting has triggered alarm in Whitehall [the British government], fuelling fears over Mr. Trump's commitment to NATO and the impact on his visit to Britain."

If that sounds extreme—Tony Blair is so upset that he's threatening us with another Hitler unless we behave. An advance text of Blair's address to Chatham House (The Royal Institute for International Affairs) which he gave to the "Guardian" on June 26, says that he will tell Donald Trump, before Trump's July visit to Europe, "that he must act to preserve the transatlantic alliance, or else he will weaken the whole of the west in the struggle against rising nations such as China."

Blair will announce at Chatham House that "The transatlantic alliance is the bedrock of our values system and way of life. Yet the rightwing relegation of it as secondary to national interest rather than part of it, and the kneejerk leftwing reaction against anything American-led, is leaving this alliance in danger of fracture....

"Globalisation and its advocates are on the back foot. Populism of left and right meet at a certain point in denunciation of free trade arrangements, migration and international alliances. All are portrayed as contrary to putting individual national interest first.

"Once it is clear the populism isn't working because, ultimately, it offers only expressions of anger and not effective answers, the populists may double down, alleging that failure is the result of half-heartedness and that only more of the same will work.

"Who knows where the dynamic of that scenario takes us? Then the comparisons with the 1930s no longer seem far-fetched."

Blair should know. It was his group which brought us Hitler before, as Helga Zepp-LaRouche and associates showed in "The Hitler Book."

This coming Trump-Putin summit is a victory for Lyndon LaRouche and his ideas, reaching back to the Strategic Defence Initiative and the European Productive Triangle, which became the Eurasian Land-Bridge and today's New Silk Road. These were the stages of LaRouche's grand design for how to end the Cold War, and what to replace it with. On each successive occasion they were apparently defeated. As LaRouche said, we fought and lost again, and again, and again. But now, after decades of tragic detours for humanity, the same ideas are suddenly back in another form—and this time, we are winning! All of these ideas in turn go straight back to LaRouche's 1948 refutation of the evil errors of Norbert Wiener, with which Will Wertz began his class on LaRouche's economics on June 22.

With this summit announcement, an entire new geometry of the world is more and more taking shape and taking over. Helga Zepp-LaRouche had called for 2018 to be the year which would mark the end of geopolitics. Perhaps that seemed far-fetched when she said it at the beginning of the year—but it no longer seems far-fetched at all now, does it?

Along with geopolitics, all the other old, familiar recipes for running the affairs of nations and peoples are now fading away into meaninglessness. For most people, even most heads of government, the rules by which they got by in the past are now no longer valid. Now they are in "terra incognita." Now, only LaRouche's methods will work. A brilliant overview of the core-basis of LaRouche's lifetime of achievement, and a good accompaniment to the Wertz-Speed class series, is his short paper on "Trade without Commodities" of July 18, 2000, republished in tomorrow's "EIR." There, LaRouche reviews how a new world monetary system must be brought about, under circumstances like today's. To provide the necessary background and depth of understanding required, he pulls together his discoveries of half a century as a seamless unity.

Most immediately, of course, the Trump-Putin summit is a victory for the fight we have led against attempts to remove the legitimately-elected President over fake charges of collusion with Russia. Although we have not yet defeated "Russiagate," we have gained enough ground to allow this summit which Trump had always wanted, to take place at last, after two years of his presidency. As we move into the superheated U.S. election season with LaRouchePAC's "Campaign to Win the Future," we must move on to decisively defeat Robert Mueller and company. Perhaps when we do so, we should revive Benjamin Franklin's proposal, which was unfortunately passed over at the time, that the Tory traitors should all be shipped back over to Britain where they belong.
