A New Peace of Westphalia: Up from the Ruin which the Roman Empires Have Made of This World  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

We are now confronted with a task of reconstruction of the physical economy of every nation on the planet, far more challenging, strategically, than anything in modern history, notably, since the 1648 Peace of Westphalia, which ended the Thirty Years War. The destruction wrought by successive “Roman” empires, down to their present incarnation in the center of monetarist imperial tyranny, London, must now come to an end, one way or another: either by the final collapse of the system under the weight of trillions of dollars in toxic debt; or through its long-overdue overthrow by the current worldwide mass strike.

But more than the defeat of the Empire is required if humanity is to survive and prosper. As recent outbursts of our Sun, and their impact around the Pacific Rim of Fire, powerfully indicate, unless mankind learns to understand and tame such cosmic events, our species may, before too long, go the way of the dinosaurs.
