Multiple Global Crises Threaten War — 'Four Powers' Demonstrate Necessary Solutions

The past week witnessed multiple regional crises, any one of which could spark a war which could become global virtually overnight. And yet, demonstrations of how to resolve these crises are also expressing themselves in an manner which could bring about a totally new paradigm for mankind as a whole.

Although the Trump-Kim summit did not reach a concluded deal, both sides expressed enthusiasm for the progress achieved and for continued peaceful negotiations, while North Korea announced a continued suspension of nuclear testing and the U.S. announced an end to large scale military exercises with South Korea. Of particular note is that both sides carefully coordinated their positions, and their post-summit planning, with Russia, China, Japan, and South Korea.

At the same time, two nuclear armed nations in South Asia were driven into a dangerous exchange of military fire, provoked, as usual, by an horrendous terrorist attack on India by foreign-directed terrorists based in Pakistan. Yet, here also, the U.S., Russia and China all engaged in easing the crisis, and may succeed in bringing India and Pakistan together in countering terrorism, and then proceed to higher levels of cooperation.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche, in her weekly webcast on Friday, said: "These two incidents — North Korea and now also the India-Pakistan situation — demonstrate that the world absolutely needs the cooperation of the four major powers, at least. The United States, Russia, China and India. That is one of the reasons why my husband, Lyndon LaRouche, had called already many years ago for a four-power agreement to address all major problems of the world situation, including the need for a new financial and credit system, a New Bretton Woods system."

With the Russiagate coup attempt nearly dead (even the lying Michael Cohen had to admit to the drooling Democrats in the Congress that he had no evidence regarding their imagined "collusion"), the vile, corrupted coup plotters among the Congressional Democrats (Schiff, Nadler and Warner) went on the Sunday talk shows today to lay out their next line of attack on the duly elected President of the United States: six critical Congressional Committees, now under Democrat chairmanship, will waste the legislative branch's time and taxpayers' money with multiple investigations, and scores of subpoenas, to continue the witch hunt — but shifting to digging for any petty crime they can uncover, or make up, regarding Trump's finances. Trump labelled this the "Schiffy shift."

Simply taking note that the impeachment of President Donald Trump, or otherwise removing him from office, would leave war-mongering fanatic Mike Pence in charge, ready to wage war on Russia and China (whom Trump wants to befriend) is enough to convince any thinking person of the actual intention behind the anti-Trump campaign being orchestrated from London.

The problem lies precisely in finding such "thinking persons." Zepp-LaRouche addressed the problem in her webcast: "Given the fact that the old paradigm is collapsing, it's disintegrating, there are people and forces representing this old paradigm that are pushing confrontation. I think it is extremely urgent to recognize that either humanity moves to a completely new type of thinking, a New Paradigm where you establish new international relations, which take into account the security interests, the economic interests, the political interests of all nations. The only way you can do that is to establish a higher order system, a New Paradigm which overcomes geopolitics and puts humanity as one, first, and then all national and regional interests second.... I think it is really very important that we develop a different kind of thinking to approach all of these problems. The idea of Nikolaus of Cusa, who thought these things already in the 15th century, that in order to solve problems you need the 'coincidence of opposites' — the coincidentia oppositorum — as an approach to solve problems. You find the higher level of reason where the problems which, on a lower, Aristotelian level of contradiction are looking insolvable, can be solved. That is what Einstein also expressed in a different way. He said you will never find a solution with the same method which caused the problem to arise. That means you cannot just geopolitically try to put this puzzle here and that puzzle there; but you have to define the common interests of humanity."
