The Way Out of the Crises – A New Paradigm for Civilization

(June 3, 2020) Schiller Institute Founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche commented on the situation in the USA, saying that the overall situation, with COVID 19, the famine pandemic, and the strategic tensions, on top of the instability in the streets, the solution requires the unique and different approach of the Schiller Institute. With 50 million people unemployed and underemployed, what is needed is the New Paradigm for civilization.

Reason, and a change in the thinking of citizens, organizations and government institutions is urgent to understand the British empire’s manipulation, and to defeat it. Their destabilization plan is not simply more Hong Kong style riots, but Malthusian genocide policy, and the elimination of sovereign cooperation among the United States, Russia, and China, in particular.

As in the 2014 Maidan coup in Ukraine, the ulterior motives of the City of London and Wall Street financial elites, who are actually running these operations, are mostly unknown to those who wish to stand up against injustice. The plans were spelled out in a banker’s meeting in September 2019 in Jackson Hole, and are now being played out in the USA. The oligarchy’s methods of creating chaos, and regime change, using “divide and conquer” strategy are nothing new.

“The LaRouche Plan to Reopen the U.S. Economy; The World Needs 1.5 Billion New, Productive Jobs” is designed to address the present national and global emergency.  50 million Americans must be given employment in truly productive jobs at wage levels commensurate with high living standards. This will also for the first time address the systemic unemployment, under-employment and mis-employment actually at the root of “the American urban crisis” for the past half-century and more. Training programs to qualify millions of persons from 17 to 30 years of age in machining, essential manufacturing skills, the medical field, construction, transportation and supplemental services, as well as in the frontier fields of space technology will prepare a new generation to shape the Earth’s next 50 years and more. Their creative reason applied to the labor process, developing new productive capability, is the true source of wealth.

Further, those 50 million jobs are the fulcrum to leverage the greatest physical economic transformation in human history, involving 1.5 billion jobs worldwide. Globalist geopolitics must be immediately superseded. A new cultural and economic paradigm must be envisioned, designed and enacted. That can begin with the United States, China, Russia and India convening a “Four Powers”summit, and discussing how to work together to bring this New Paradigm employment program into being over the next months.

NASA: Cooperation Above Geopolitics

May 27 —This week’s pending launch of the NASA/SpaceX manned Crew Dragon flight to the International Space Station (ISS) has put “Launch America” optimism back into the everyday atmosphere in the U.S.—not only the vision of space travel once again, but the joy of science and technology. Today’s last- minute postponement of the take-off was due only to weather, not malfunction or a mystery glitch. President Donald Trump and Mrs. Trump, on hand in Florida this afternoon, will return Saturday to the Kennedy Space Center for the rescheduled launch May 30 at 3:22 pm EDT; if weather again intervenes, May 31 is the next launch date.

The additional dimension to the U.S. renewed space commitment is international cooperation. NASA Director Jim Bridenstine, speaking at a pre-launch briefing May 27, was asked about the U.S. relationship to Russia, and he replied, “our cooperation transcends above terrestrial geopolitics.” This is the same spirit of cooperation that Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche calls for in her petition, “Coronavirus Petition: Build a Global Health Infrastructure.”

Bridenstine stressed the importance of the SpaceX Dragon Crew launch, scheduled to take place from the historic pad 39 at the Kennedy Space Center, will be the first time since July 2011 that America, “will launch American astronauts, on American rockets, from American soil.” He reflected that, as this launch is taking place in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, one thing that will inspire our America is that “all of America can take a moment and look at our country do something stunning again.” Astronaut Nicole Mann emphasized that the flight is our first big step on our road map to the Moon for the Artemis mission and on to Mars. Bridenstine stressed great confidence in the mission, despite the fact that some of the media questions expressed certain doubts or fears of the agencies’ absolute preparedness.

Bridenstine reiterated that the safety of the astronauts was the number one priority of NASA. (In fact, at 4:18 p.m. today, Jim Bridenstine tweeted: “Cloud with lightning No launch for today – safety for our crew members Astro_Doug and @AstroBehnken is our top priority. We’ll try, try again to #LaunchAmerica on Saturday with liftoff at 3:22pm ET. NASA TV will begin coverage at 11 am. Join us again virtually:” He did make the point again that NASA is a customer of SpaceX and the commercial crew flights and that the hopes are that these flights would soon be taking place without NASA, to lower the cost and build up the presence of commercial space activities in low-Earth orbit.

He talked about the need to launch a future commercial space station and some of the technologies that would be expanded there, such as 3D printing of organs in space.

In response to a question on U.S.-Russia cooperation and negotiations on the commercial launches, Bridenstine reiterated regarding the ISS, to which the crew will be launching, that half of the station is Russian and the other half American. He said, if we are going to have the continued cooperation that we have had, the U.S. has to be willing to launch cosmonauts on the commercial crew, and Russia has to be willing to launch NASA astronauts on the Soyuz. He pointed to the U.S.-Russian partnership going back to 1975 with Apollo/Soyuz, followed by Shuttle/MIR and then the ISS. Most importantly, “our cooperation transcends above terrestrial geopolitics,” said Bridenstine.

He concluded by responding to a question about the efforts and credit that go to previous administrations for what is underway in the space program today. He said the space program stretches beyond one administration to another, and said space exploration unites people beyond geopolitical boundaries, unites not only Democrats and Republicans, but all nations. President Donald Trump has made a commitment to return American astronauts to the Moon for permanent presence with the Artemis mission and on to Mars. He reiterated the bipartisan support for Artemis.
