OVERVIEW

May 8 (EIRNS)--Leading representatives from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, came together under the auspices of the Schiller Institute in Germany over the first weekend in May, to discuss a remedy for the presently ongoing, Bush Administration-led plunge of the entire planet into a new Dark Age.

The central feature of the remedy presented, and discussed, was the proposal by U.S. statesman and economist Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., for a great, ecumenical Eurasian development project, as the pivot of an intended global economic and moral recovery. The discussion, which featured contributions by prominent thinkers from Russia, China, and India, in addition to leaders of Sudan, Nigeria, Burundi, and Rwanda, occurred under the theme, "The Ecumenical Battle for the Common Good."

The extraordinary richness, and unity of direction, expressed by this array of participants, when considered in the context of the simultaneous ecumenical mission being undertaken by Pope John Paul II in explicit pursuit of the common good, against globalization, made this conference a potentially decisive turning point for all mankind.

As presented by LaRouche, the moral intention of his policy proposal is defined as the relationship of a Eurasian renaissance, to the issues of genocide being perpetrated intentionally against all of Sub-Saharan Africa by the Anglo-American directors and supporters of the Hitler-like, Christian Solidarity International of Britain's Baroness Cox. The Eurasian economic renaissance will give Eurasia the means to support justice for Africa; but that intention for Africa must be an embedded, integral feature of the Eurasian economic development efforts.

Dominating the three days of the conference, beginning with Lyndon LaRouche's keynote speech, was the figure of the great Russia-Ukraine scientist Vladimir Vernadsky, a great pioneer in nuclear technology, and the founder of the branch of physical economy known as biogeochemistry. As LaRouche stated, the possibility of successful development of cooperation among the nations of continental Eurasia, including Japan, depends upon a commitment to the greatest work of infrastructural development in all human history, a work he described as "The Conquest of
Inner Space": the transformation of Central and North Asia, through development corridors, into an area of vast economicm development. This would require "crash programs" in the development of the combined science of physical economy and biogeochemistry, for which the work of Vernadsky is critical.

Following LaRouche's keynote, given the evening of May 4, were contributions by two distinguished Russians, Dr. Sergei Glazyev, chairman of the Committee on Economic Policy and Business at the State Duma of the Russian Federation in Moscow, and Prof. Stanislav Menshikov of the Central Institute of Mathematics at the Academy of Sciences in Moscow.

The second day of proceedings began with a panel discussion devoted to the theme "A Twenty-Five Year Development Perspective for Eurasia: Russia, China, and India." Following a review of the shocking process of financial collapse in the West, especially the United States, by {EIR} economics writer Lothar
Komp, the conference heard from Dr. Yuri Gromyko of the Moscow branch of the Schiller Institute; Dr. Wen Tiejun of Beijing, Deputy Secretary-General of the China Society for Restructuring Economic Systems; Prof. Sujit Dutta of the Institute for Defense Studies and Analysis, New Delhi; and Prof. Selim Mohammad of Egypt.

The afternoon panel featured contributions from African eaders Prof. Abdalla A. Abdalla of Sudan, a former minister of agriculture in that nation; Prof. Sam Aluko of Nigeria; Jean Gahururu of Rwanda; and a representative of the Committee for the
Defense of Democracy in Burundi, Leonce Ndarubagize.

This discussion was followed immediately by a presentation about the crucial fight to save D.C. General Hospital in Washington, D.C., given by two leading participants, Nurses Union representative Charlene Gordon, and Dr. Alim Muhammad, Minister of Health for the Nation of Islam.

The final day of the conference further developed the ecumenical and scientific principles required to carry out the ambitious reconstruction plans which had been laid out. Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder of the Schiller Institute, presented the crucial role of Cardinal Nicolaus of Cusa in developing the principles of the modern nation-state, and his concept of a dialogue of cultures, in the context of celebrating the great thinker's 600th birthday. Marivilia Carrasco, leader of the LaRouche movement in Mexico, then discussed the "Africanization of Ibero-America" and the role which Cervantes' {Don Quixote} can play in teaching the "art of governing" in the face of such an assault on nation-states.

The conference concluded with a summary of the case for a science of life, as opposed to the reductionist abomination knownas "molecular biology," a discussion pivotted on the role of Vernadsky's fundamental contributions. Speaking to this subject were Dr. Jonathan Tennenbaum of the German Fusion Energy Foundation (FEF); Laurence Hecht of the U.S.-based magazine {21st Century Science & Technology}; Dino De Paoli, and Dr. Wolfgang Lillge, also of the FEF.

Proceedings and speeches of this historic conference will be available here soon , and on {EIR'}s website, http://www.larouchepub.com.
