The underlying theme of Helga Zepp LaRouche’s strategic presentation in this week’s Schiller Institute webcast is that, as the clash between the Old and New Paradigms is becoming more obvious, it is the quality of thinking characterized by human creativity, which alone can bring the world to realize the shared common aims of mankind represented by the New Paradigm.
Nowhere was this more obvious than in the contrast between events in Hanoi, where President Trump was meeting with North Korea’s President Kim, and the nasty circus in Washington, D.C., featuring the dirty lawyer Michael Cohen and the foolish Democrats, salivating over the hope that Cohen’s lies will pave the way for impeachment. Trump was acting explicitly with a cooperative strategic alliance with Russia and China, as well as with South Korea and Japan, in his talks in Hanoi, while the pro-coup forces in Washington were doing the dirty work of the British Empire, to keep humanity hostage to their dying system.
Helga presented what is required to move humanity, to not just avoid nuclear war, but to bring about a future driven by the most exciting exploration of the universe. Referring to the beautiful ideas about letting the future shape the present which her husband discussed in his book, “There Are No Limits to Growth”, she issued an impassioned call to mobilize to win this fight.
The regime change coup against President Trump has been increasingly visible, as positive developments based on his initiatives have forced the coup plotters into the open. Look at the intelligence officials who presented the “Worldwide Threat Assessment” to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on January 30. On virtually every single issue, those delivering the report—DNI Coats, CIA Director Haspel and FBI Director Wry—contradicted the President’s strategic policies. Responding to them, Trump called them “naive”, and expressed optimism that his diplomatic initiatives have been effective.
Helga Zepp LaRouche provided a concise report on those contradictions, on North Korea, Syria, relations with Russia and China, etc. The Old Paradigm, the neoliberal British imperial model, has failed, she said, and much of the world has moved into a New Paradigm, based on win-win cooperation. Typifying this Old Paradigm, is George Soros, who attacked China in his speech at Davos as the biggest threat to his “Open Society.” Zepp LaRouche said this is true, as his “Open Society” is nothing more than the collapsing British neoliberal system.
The same regime change forces behind Russiagate are now pushing a regime change coup in Venezuela, with potentially dangerous consequences. She asked, How can we avoid feeling as though we, who are fighting against this coup, are on a roller coaster, going up and down? It’s a question of understanding the principle of the Common Good. Study the works of Lyndon LaRouche, to become true representatives of the Common Good. And fight for his exoneration, as those who put him in prison thirty years ago are the ones running coups around the world, and in the U.S., today.
Thirty years ago, on January 27, 1989, Lyndon LaRouche and a number of his associates were imprisoned, in a case described by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark as the worst example of government persecution he had ever seen. The networks responsible for this outrage are the same as those behind the regime change coup drive against President Trump, beginning with high level officials of British intelligence, who initiated the targeting of LaRouche and Trump, and including the same legal assassin, Robert Mueller.
In this week’s webcast, Helga Zepp LaRouche outlines why this network of British oligarchs has continued to “meddle” in U.S. affairs: Why they are launching a coup in Venezuela; why they continue to attack China; how they are wrecking Europe, through their European Union operation; and how a New Paradigm is emerging, explicitly committed to replacing the era of imperial geopolitics. The time is ripe for this New Paradigm, as is clear from the insurgency, from Brexit to the Yellow Jackets, which has put the Brits on the defensive.
Understanding Lyndon LaRouche’s intellectual guidance of this New Paradigm explains why he was targeted 30 years ago, and how the leadership of the Schiller Institute and its supporters is necessary today for it to succeed.
While one of the Empire’s favorite leak sheets, Buzzfeed, exposed itself with its latest lying story targeting President Trump, he opened the prospect that LaRouche’s design for the SDI might be back on the agenda. And while May and Macron continue in their vain attempts to prop up the collapsing neo-liberal model, the Italians continue to forge ahead.
This week’s Schiller Institute’s webcast with Helga Zepp LaRouche presents an optimistic perspective on what it will take to finish off the era of British imperial geopolitics.
Listening to the Western news media, you would think the world is all chaos, no ordering principle whatsoever. However, stepping back and putting U.S. and European ‘current events’ in context of what’s occurring worldwide, it is easier to see what’s going on in the West is an establishment reaction to the positive forces of change shaping up across the globe. Xi-Kim talks are moving forward, foreshadowing a possible second Trump-Kim summit, potential progress in U.S.-China trade talks, Trump decision to pull U.S. out of Syria, in conjunction with Astana process, China’s successful Chang’e 4 landing on the far side of the Moon, and more.

At the beginning of 2018, Helga Zepp-LaRouche said the most important goal for 2018 was ending the stranglehold of geopolitics. While we still have much to do, many historic steps have been taken in that direction around the world.
See Helga’s special 2019 New Year message for a review of what we’ve accomplished in 2018, and what’s needed in 2019.
The announcement by President Trump of an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, and reduction of troops in Afghanistan, has prompted a hypocritical and hysterical response from the pro-war party, which includes “leftists” and “liberal” media, in addition to the usual suspects among the neocons. Trump is fulfilling a campaign promise, to end regime change wars, opening the promise of the emergence of a new era in southwest Asia, based on reviving the principle of the Peace of Westphalia.
So why the hysteria? In this week’s webcast, Helga Zepp LaRouche explains why if Trump follows through with his pledge, and then proceeds to coordinate closely with Putin and Xi Jinping, it is a death knell to British geopolitics. That he is now acting on his own authority as President, ignoring the advice of his would-be controllers, has heightened the hysteria. This fear was signaled in a piece in “Foreign Affairs” earlier this year titled “The End of the Democratic Century,” i.e., the liberal British Empire. The ongoing collapse of many of the Trans-Atlantic governments, due to revolts by their people, such as in the Brexit vote and the “yellow vest” movement spreading from France, demonstrates the failure of neocon strategic policy and neo-liberal economic policy.
And while these regimes totter, the Belt-and-Road Initiative continues to pick up steam and gain adherents, such as Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda. The progress of the “Singapore model” on the Korean peninsula further exemplifies the potential for the coming year to be the year of the triumph of the New Paradigm.
It should provide some food for thought over the coming weekend, as we come to a tumultuous end of the year.
With the success China has had in raising the living standard of its population over the last four decades, why is it being subjected to a campaign of such “malicious fabrications” (in Foreign Affairs, ARTE documentary and in the media in general), especially as it is working to help other nations achieve similar results, with its Belt-and Road Initiative? Why the constant attacks on Putin and Russia? And why the escalation by Mueller against Trump, as he has failed to produce any evidence of “collusion”, which is what Russiagate was supposed to be about?
In today’s webcast, Helga Zepp LaRouche calls on viewers to study the works of the great philosophers, including Plato, Cusa, Leibniz, Schiller, Einstein, and her husband Lyndon LaRouche, to develop their capacity to hear their own inner voice, so as to be able to engage in “self-thinking”, so they may answer these questions for themselves.
While the House of Lords is lamenting the prospect of the end of the “special relationship”, Trump took two major steps against the old paradigm, agreeing to work with Mexico in projects of economic development in Central America, and in announcing the end of U.S. military intervention in Syria.
She challenged our viewers to use the holidays ahead to read, and discuss great ideas with family and friends.
French President Emmanuel Macron has capitulated to the Yellow Vests revolt in France—what’s really going on?
The uprising in France is not a series of “protests”—this is the type of phenomenon that Lyndon LaRouche has previously identified as a “mass strike” (referring to the insights Rosa Luxemburg).
As the Schiller Institute has warned for decades, the so-called “climate change” scare is a cover story for a Malthusian policy of radical austerity—a British-globalist plan to reduce living standards, reduce energy consumption, and reduce population.
Now we’re seeing that underlying reality bursting through.
We’re happy to bring you this week’s webcast with Helga Zepp-LaRouche.
There is a rebellion in Europe! From the Yellow Vests, to Brexit, to the political crisis in Germany—mass ferment continues to build against the imploding neo-liberal order. The exception in Europe is Italy, which is the only stable government fighting against the EU insanity (with Portugal and Spain starting to make some interesting moves as well).
Looking at the global situation, we do have some positive developments coming out of the recent G20 meeting in Argentina. Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping held critical talks, concluding that the U.S. and China can work together. Unfortunately the anti-Russia chaos operations did succeed in preventing Trump from meeting with Putin, but Trump is continuing to fight back. In a recent Tweet, Trump emphasized the need to work with with Xi and Putin to stop the arms race.
In the United States, we see an important development involving the Congress. 46 of the newly-elected Democrats have released a letter saying their intention is to focus on addressing real issues, like health care and infrastructure, and they didn’t focus on the ridiculous charade of calling for Trump’s impeachment.
And we have some new progress with the Belt and Road Initiative, with Portugal now signing on!
