The End of All Empires?
"We'll show you. You don't understand the British Empire. Just let me tell you this. We dragged you into two wars, and we'll drag you into the third."—Randolph Churchill to Walter Lippmann on March 6, 1946, the day after Winston Churchill's "Iron Curtain" speech.
Major strategic actions by Presidents Putin and Xi Jinping, followed by President Trump's most recent orders to end the "forever wars" initiated by his predecessors, are setting the stage for finally ending a quarter-millennium's bloody reign of the Anglo-Dutch Empire over mankind. This has been the latest and what must be the last example of a long history of imperial rule. At the same time that Queen Elizabeth was boasting of her personal rule over one in every three human beings in her Christmas message, President Trump was advocating that Syria and Afghanistan sovereignly negotiate the establishment of peace in their countries with the support of their neighbors, including Russia, and of the United States. As Helga Zepp-LaRouche has said, this is the road toward replacing British-managed wars in South and Southeast Asia with the model of the Peace of Westphalia.
Meanwhile, in East Asia, China's President Xi Jinping is pulling out all the stops to insure the success of the forthcoming summit of President Trump with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, which will begin to wind up another big British control and trigger-point. And the most recent U.S.-China trade negotiations in Beijing were characterized by both sides as a qualified success, in as much as every single vital issue is now on the table for discussion—giving hope that a final agreement can be reached before March 1.
The geometry Lyndon Larouche has long fought for, of a Four-Power agreement between the U.S., Russia, China and India, for a New Bretton Woods world credit system, is clearly coming within immediate reach. And who ever understood through the decades that this was even possible? Who fought for it all this time but Lyndon LaRouche and a few around him? Now the New Silk Road or Eurasian Landbridge, which LaRouche proposed as part of his New Bretton Woods, has long become reality. Now the New Bretton Woods agreement must begin to take shape.
Our role remains critical—perhaps more critical than ever. None of this would have happened but for LaRouche's initiatives. It is up to each of us to recreate the necessary ideas within ourselves, as our own original discoveries, and having done that, to recreate them as new discoveries within the minds of others.
One enduring (although ever-changing) element is LaRouche's exposure of the British Empire over the mind. In a sense, this must be understood before anything can be understood—but who understands it but us?
One aspect of that empire over the mind is the problem President Trump is forced to confront at the U.S. southern border as well as elsewhere: Dope, Inc., or what Lyndon LaRouche always calls "Britain's Opium War against the World." This indeed requires border security, but much more, since the cartel will find another entry-point whenever one is blocked. Lyndon LaRouche's famous declaration of War on Drugs in Mexico City in 1985, vividly brings to mind how an alliance of the Four Powers today, which are also the leading space powers, can uniquely win such a war.
