On the Subject Of Germany's Role
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.
March 15—The commendable contribution expressed in the speech by Germany's Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier delivered on March 12, 2015, nonetheless fails to meet the essential features of the actually required terms. I, therefore, present the case required, as follows henceforth.
In fact, the present conditions of the inhabited planet Earth, have reached the point at which the notion of the habitation of the planet, in its entirety, must be responsive to the principles of Johannes Kepler, which must be considered, actually universally, as the proper notion of design for the organization of the entirety of the planet.
On this presently real account, the old habits of the ostensibly traditional notions fail, even catastrophically. The presently nominal standards of European traditions no longer agree with the designs of either the ostensibly ``traditional'' or other media. What had been the lately traditional standards of political-economic expression, have the misfortunate effect of demanding that the terms of a modern system of practices be subjected to what are, in fact, stubbornly contemporary, but in fact, now worse than intrinsically archaic, modalities.
I explain as follows:

..........The Evils of Present Finance

Currently prevalent U.S.A. and European financial practices have lately relied, chiefly, on the standards of sheer usury which are illustrated by the effects of a general practice of mere finance as based on financial usury as such....

This Week's Cover


Feature

  • China's Congress Charts a New Path for the World
    Much of the attention focused on this year's meeting of China's National People's Congress and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Committee, has been misguided or worse, malicious. But the Congress's importance is real. With the full brunt of the international financial crisis hitting the West, China is playing a crucial role in maintaining stability in the world economy. In particular, its commitment to the development of the two Silk Roads, the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, represents the only option for the world to chart a path out of the present economic crisis.
  • The Maritime Silk Road—1405 and 2013
    The old, caravan Silk Road through Central Asia, dating back to Roman times, is well known. Less well known is the precedent for the New Maritime Silk Road—the massive armadas of the Ming Dynasty of China in the early 15th Century, by far the largest and most extensive voyages of diplomacy and exploration in the world at that time.
  • Hu Yi:
    China's 'One Belt/One Road' Policy Is Open to All Nations
    Mr. Hu, the First Secretary of the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Denmark, spoke at the EIR/Schiller Institute diplomatic seminar in Copenhagen on Jan. 30.

Economics

  • Greece Is Taking Up the BRICS Option
    Greece has become the standard bearer for the BRICS in Europe. With the European Union refusing to turn off the road leading to self-destruction, the drive for economic development led by Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa is creating a powerful alternative that Greece is ready to adopt.
  • IMF Applies 'Greek' Austerity Formula to War-Ravaged Ukraine
    The agreement signed between the IMF and the Ukrainian government on March 11 will do nothing to help that bankrupt and war-torn country. On the contrary, it will drive Ukraine deeper into debt, and force wages and living standards down even further than has already occurred under the regime put into place by the U.S. and the EU one year ago.
  • Ending the Myth of the U.S. 'Recovery'
    The approach of the 2016 Presidential election has galvanized some among leading Democrats to reject, publicly, the idea that Americans have experienced any 'recovery' from the 2007-08 collapse. The reality of the lack of capital investment since the elimination of the Glass-Steagall Act is asserting itself.

National

  • Martin O'Malley:
    Restoring Glass-Steagall Is the Central Issue
    Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, who has been touring the country pressing his exploratory bid for the 2016 Democratic Presidential nomination, has made restoring Glass-Steagall central to addressing what he sees as the defining issues of income inequality and continually declining wages.
  • Fraud, Drugs, Terror:
    Will HSBC Be Stopped?
    For more than a century, HSBC's financial skullduggery has helped cover over the problems of its patrons, filling its coffers with ill-gotten gains from drugs, arms sales, and financial manipulation. But now, HSBC has run into some serious problems, which threaten to pull down both the bank itself, and some of its most prominent protectors.

Science

  • To Explain the Solar System, First Understand Creativity
    The second part of the Feb. 25 LaRouchePAC Science Team's New Paradigm weekly show, this week featuring Benjamin Deniston, joined by Megan Beets and Jason Ross, continuing an ongoing discussion about the continuity of thought from Nicholas of Cusa to Johannes Kepler. This week the discussion focuses on Kepler's exploration of the relationship between the musical harmonies and the orbits of the five inner planets.
