Pessimism Is the British Empire's Most Deadly Weapon of Mass Destruction
Over the weekend, the British Empire's classical "strategy of tension" and irregular warfare escalated in Hong Kong, in Moscow, and in the United States with two new mass shootings—one on Saturday in an El Paso shopping center (20 killed and 26 wounded), and another early Sunday morning outside a bar in Dayton (9 killed and dozens wounded). In the Dayton case, the suspect, who was wearing body armor, was shot dead by police; in the El Paso incident, the perpetrator was arrested and, according to media accounts, is a white nationalist who said he wanted to kill as many Mexicans as possible.
Predictably, some of the Democratic hyena pack (Beto O'Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, and others) tried to pin the blame on President Donald Trump for the El Paso atrocity, denouncing him for purportedly "creating an environment of hatred" which encourages such crimes. More broadly, the political environment is certainly being created internationally to unleash eco-terrorism on a heightened scale, as per the British gameplan—and all of this in the context of a looming international financial blowout, and British deployments to worsen tensions between the U.S. and China and the U.S. and Russia, in order to reverse the advances achieved by President Trump's bilateral meetings with China's Xi Jinping and Russia's Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Osaka.
But the weekend's mass shootings point to an even more deadly weapon that the British have knowingly and systematically unleashed against the prospect of a New Paradigm of development, peace and classical culture: the weapon of cultivated cultural and personal pessimism.
The El Paso and Dayton butcheries bring the 2019 total of such mass shootings in the U.S. to 250 for the year—more than one incident a day during the 215 days of 2019 that have transpired! So far this year over 530 people have died in mass shootings (defined as four or more people shot or killed, not including the shooters), and over 2,050 have been injured.
Yet this is only one of the horrid heads of the hydra that is now threatening the very existence of the U.S., Europe, and other parts of the planet. "We are truly living in a Dark Age," Helga Zepp-LaRouche commented on Sunday, reflecting on recent developments. "We are in the midst of a full breakdown of society, with suicide cults, children mobilized by Green fascists to call for global depopulaton, mass shootings, rampant and growing drug addiction. Society has lost all sense of purpose and directionality. People hate others, and they hate themselves. They are prepared to kill others, and kill themselves."
Zepp-LaRouche continued: "This is all a reflection of deep-seated cultural pessimism, which is a form of severe mental insanity that is being deliberately induced in the population by the British Empire." To turn it around requires not only a full-scale mobilization around organizing a viable, creative future for Humanity, especially today's youth, through such crash programs as the Moon-Mars mission which American statesman Lyndon LaRouche designed over three decades ago—and which is now being taken up, to differing degrees, by China, Russia, India, and President Trump in the United States.
But what is simultaneously required, Zepp-LaRouche emphasized yesterday, is a crash program for the aesthetical education of Man, to provide all of Humanity and its posterity access to classical culture in all its expressions. Krafft Ehricke, the great German-American space scientist, publicly reported that he had joined the board of the international Schiller Institute for just that reason: that along with its commitment to science, it was committed to using classical culture to create what Schiller called "beautiful souls."
That outlook, which is the outlook needed to defeat the British Empire's most deadly weapon of mass destruction, pessimism, was expressed most beautifully by Krafft Ehricke in his 1957 Three Fundamental Laws of Astronautics:
"1) Nobody and nothing under the natural laws of this universe impose any limitations on man except man himself.
"2) Not only the Earth, but the entire Solar System, and as much of the universe as he can reach under the laws of nature, are man's rightful field of activity.
"3) By expanding through the Universe, man fulfills his destiny as an element of life, endowed with the power of reason and the wisdom of the moral law within himself."
