“World Peace Requires the Bankruptcy Reorganization of the Dying Trans-Atlantic Financial System”
The title above is the theme of the international online conference the Schiller Institute will hold on the afternoons and evenings of June 18-19. What is at stake is laid out in the invitation to the event, which we quote:
“In this year of 2022, the 100th anniversary of Lyndon LaRouche’s birth, it is time to finally recognize the accuracy of his warning over decades: That the continuation of the financial speculation and looting policies of the City of London and Wall Street’s free-trade and floating exchange rate system, enshrined after August 1971, would necessarily lead to war — and very possibly thermonuclear war — coupled with the drastic collapse of the world’s physical economy and resulting depopulation; the deaths of millions and even billions of human beings through famine and pandemics.
“But it is also time to take recourse to the policy solutions provided by Lyndon LaRouche, to bring about the successful bankruptcy reorganization of that dying system, and replace it with a new international security and development architecture built on the same philosophical cornerstone of statecraft which gave rise to the Peace of Westphalia in 1648.
“On the danger of nuclear war, the spokesmen for the bankrupt trans-Atlantic system have been explicit about their intention to goad Russia to the very brink, in the hope of getting Russia to back down and submit to the unipolar empire….
“On the matter of physical economic collapse, the Federal Reserve Bank has led a worldwide frenzy of Quantitative Easing which has unleashed galloping hyperinflation, now spreading from the $1.9 quadrillion in unpayable derivatives and other financial assets into the producer and consumer goods sectors of the economy. As a result, there are drastic and growing shortages in food, energy, and other goods essential for human survival. Up to 2 billion out of the nearly 8 billion people on this planet are facing food insecurity this year which, if not urgently reversed, will rapidly become hunger and then starvation for up to one quarter of humanity. While the sanctions imposed on Russia and the impact of the war in Ukraine have aggravated the crisis, especially in regard to food and energy supply, the notion that the economic breakdown crisis has been caused by the war, simply ignores reality. Ending the war will not end the systemic breakdown of the entire western financial system….”
