World in Turmoil: A Moment for Decisive Intervention, If Viewed from the Highest Level of History
The world is in turmoil, as seen most dramatically in the many mass protests—from Chile, to Lebanon, to Iraq, and violent deployments into Bolivia and Hong Kong by agents of the dying neo-liberal geopolitical system. At the same time, this is a moment for decisive intervention for the good, if people stand ready with the programs and methods of working together to lead the way safely ahead.
In reviewing current events, Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche yesterday stressed the need to inspire ourselves and everyone to view things from the highest vantage point of history. That way, one is not caught in a flat, two-dimensional, false reality of being manipulated to “take sides,” and face doom.
Zepp-LaRouche used the comparative example of the systemic crisis in 1989, when from 1989-1991 the whole communist party system came to an end, in comparison to the present day, when the neo-liberal financial/economic system is coming to an end. In the case of 1989 through the 1990s, the positive alternative was thwarted. But today, we can act to see that that does not happen again.
Look at the method of collaborative thinking expressed today in the Mediterranean by Chinese President Xi Jinping, meeting in Athens with Greek leaders. Xi spoke of the new Asian-Europe relations leveraged by Greece, as it serves as the transshipment point for expanding two-way trade and mutual development. Xi and his Greek hosts personally toured the Port of Piraeus.
Meantime, the situations are very dangerous in Bolivia and Hong Kong, where the “Maidan” model is in play, involving outside intervention by joint networks of fascist squadristi and Whitehall/State Department operatives. There has been unprecedented violence in Hong Kong in recent days. In Bolivia, there is a total power vacuum, with no formal government at all. The Santa Cruz faction of Bolivia’s fascist operative Luis Fernando Camacho are killing and rampaging wantonly, in the name of “divine justice.” The Organization of American States and the U.S. State Department are complicit in the process, welcoming the “professional” role of the corrupt Organization of American States, which proclaimed the Oct. 20 elections to be fraudulent, setting the stage for the violent uprising that led President Evo Morales to resign Nov. 10.
Zepp-LaRouche stressed that the “geopolitical mindset” must be overcome. The touchstone in the U.S., are the presidencies and outlooks that have gone before: George Washington, John Quincy Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and the historic contributions of Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, and Lyndon LaRouche. The American System is the critical heritage. People have to rise up and take responsibility on a world-historical level.
