Today's Great Moment Must Find a Great People

The startling and unexpected developments of the past weeks have brought the United States and the world towards a turning point in several closely-related struggles, or several aspects of one and the same struggle. One aspect is to forge unity among the four great anti-imperial powers of the United States, Russia, China and India. Now, once more, the world's speculative, London-centered financial system trembles at the abyss of a crisis worse than that which erupted in 2007. To avert it, the late statesman and economist Lyndon LaRouche had long proposed that those four nations must join to initiate a new world system, a credit system rather than a financial system. Worthless speculative holdings will be put through bankruptcy, and fixed currency parities reintroduced. The new institution will issue large-scale low-interest credit for development projects around the world, like China's huge Belt and Road Initiative world infrastructure program, with which 123 nations have signed cooperation agreements. The new international credit system will be inspired by Franklin Roosevelt's design for the original Bretton Woods system, which was perverted after his death. Such a new world credit system will literally end imperialism overnight, since today's ruling London-centered speculative financial system, which includes Wall Street, the International Monetary Fund and the like, is synonymous with imperialism; it is in fact the only imperialism which exists today.

As these four powers move into alignment, they will choke off war provocations—which are mostly British or British-aligned—and pacify war-zones.

Another aspect is the requirement that mankind push out from his home planet to explore and eventually colonize the Moon, the Solar system and beyond—what Lyndon LaRouche's collaborator, the great German-American space scientist Krafft Ehricke, had called "the extraterrestrial imperative," as a moral imperative. This is how Genesis 1 should be understood. Man in the image of God is not earthbound; he is universal like his Maker, and an immortal species. Since the same four powers are also the great space powers (along with Japan and others), space exploration and colonization immediately open up as a field for their collaboration.

Closely linked in, is the struggle to suppress the attempted British-directed coup d'etat against the legitimately-elected U.S. President Donald Trump, which still continues despite the Mueller report's finding of "no collusion." As millions of Americans now understand, the foreign power which interfered in the U.S. 2016 elections and afterwards was London, not Moscow, because London knew that a President Trump would not be their willing patsy like our most recent Presidents or a Hillary Clinton, none of whom would ever dare to break from the "special relationship" with Britain to collaborate with Russia, China and India. Instead, they launched never-ending foreign wars based on British lies, like former Prime Minister Tony Blair's "Dodgy Dossier" on Iraqi WMD.

Now imagine the horror with which the London saw how the close cooperation between Presidents Trump and Putin, and President Xi Jinping of China, also including India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, had prepared the breakthrough negotiations between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-Un in the DMZ. Putin had met with Kim in preparation, and Xi made a state visit to North Korea immediately before his meeting with Trump at the end of June. The process continues intensively, although the fake-news press would rather ignore it. Meanwhile, the same four powers are trying to negotiate an eventual peace agreement in Afghanistan.

On July 4, President Trump reminded Americans and others why the American Revolution was fought, and against whom—the same British Empire. Also, millions learned from that speech, for the first time, that humanity would go to the Moon again in 2024, this time to stay, to industrialize the Moon in order to launch missions to Mars, as Lyndon LaRouche had famously forecast in his half-hour televised campaign video for the 1988 Democratic Presidential nomination, "The Woman on Mars." On July 20, the world will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the Moon, to be celebrated internationally by the Schiller Institute in this spirit.

Then, in a series of memos leaked July 7, Britain's ambassador to Washington, Sir Kim Darroch, revealed himself as a foe and a conspirator against the American President, and was later forced to resign.

Thus, a series of sudden, unexpected events has suddenly revealed how close we are to victory in this many-sided struggle. For all those thinking back 50 years to Apollo 11, it might seem that we are near the point of realizing the plans and dreams of John Kennedy, which were aborted by his British-inspired assassination and those of his brother Bobby and Martin Luther King.

It seemed at the time that no one stepped forward to pick up the torch from those three. In a sense, that was true—none of their immediate associates stepped forward. But in a deeper sense, it was Lyndon LaRouche who stepped forward. He pursued his path through a rediscovery of the scientific principles of economy, first breaking into notoriety for correctly forecasting Nixon's 1971 destruction of the Bretton Woods system, a forecast that had earlier been derided by every "recognized" economist. LaRouche understood the Constitutional institution of the U.S. Presidency, worked within it, and ran eight Presidential campaigns. Among other historic achievements, in 1983 he won President Reagan to what the latter called the "Strategic Defense Initiative," as an alternative to nuclear "Mutually Assured Destruction," and a world-development policy.

LaRouche's proposals for the Moon-Mars mission stemmed from his Strategic Defense Initiative.

For this, LaRouche was framed and sent to prison for five years by the same British-inspired group which has tried to frame President Trump, including the same corrupt prosecutor Robert Mueller. But prison didn't stop him. From prison, he conceived the plan, then called the "Strategic Triangle," which later became China's Belt and Road Initiative which has so changed the world, bringing hope to Africa for instance. LaRouche must be exonerated, freed from the taint of his false conviction, so that his ideas can be more widely used to secure the victory which is now within reach.

Now, today, a great moment is here, to find a great people to win this battle.
