2015; Join the BRICS, or Face Wall St. Crash & War  

A new system of economic and strategic relations among sovereign nations, centered on the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) and their allies in South America, Asia, and Africa, is poised to dominate the world in 2015. This new arrangement, representing more than half of humanity, holds the promise of freeing the globe from the barbarous stranglehold of the British Empire, and its satrapies, including Saudi Arabia, Wall Street, and the current Presidency of the United States.

“The truth of the matter is, the greatest margin of political power in the world lies in the hands of the BRICS body and its associates,” noted Lyndon LaRouche Dec. 28.

Will the United States choose to embark on the path to collaboration among the world’s sovereign nations, or plunge into catastrophe? That is what is on the agenda for the coming year.

History

The 1870s Showdown: America’s Former Greatness and the World’s Future  

by Anton Chaitkin

The United States introduced to the world a modern way of life; “captured the lightning,” and put nature’s powers at humanity’s service,” writes historian Anton Chaitkin. “The brightened world applauded America’s inventions and the example of its skilled, well-paid producers. Its national dignity was that the common citizen could accomplish anything needed to solve problems, through genius and persistent work.”

The anti-imperial American Revolution spread around the world, emerging in Russia, Germany, Japan, and in the national movements that led to the modern states of China, India, Ireland, and elsewhere.

“But the London imperial center and its Wall Street offshoot at length gained power over American industry and strategy. By the 21st Century, the U.S.A. had surrendered its world-shaping way of life, closed its productive industries, and thrown itself into a suicidal Anglo-American casino economy and permanent war scenario.”
