PRESS RELEASE


Schiller Conference Passes
Resolution: Either Glass-Steagall,
or Chaos and Genocide'

April 16, 2013 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee.

The following resolution was adopted on April 14, at the conclusion of a two-day conference by the Schiller Institute in Frankfurt, Germany, which was dedicated to the creation of a New Paradigm to Save Civilization.

"We, gathered here in Frankfurt, Germany, representing countries from all continents, give our full support to the immediate voting up of a Glass-Steagall Act in the United States, both in the House of Representatives and the Senate, in line with the Marcy Kaptur-Walter Jones 'Return to Prudent Banking Act' HR 129.

"We are all convinced that it is a matter of life or death, and that it is only a Glass-Steagall Act in the United States that can stop the genocidal policies of the world-monetarist system, and that it is the necessary weapon to break the chains of the British Empire. To say it in one word: It is either Glass-Steagall, or chaos and genocide.

"We in our respective countries are therefore committed to lead that fight for a Glass-Steagall principle, both in the United States and within each of our nations. Glass-Steagall is only the first step. We must also replace the present monetary system with a public credit system in the tradition of Alexander Hamilton, based on national banking, in order to finance the reconstruction of the world economy. This includes nations having sovereignty over their own currency. If mankind is to have a future, we must end the present policies of conflict resolution through war, and agree on the common aims of mankind, such as overcoming poverty on Earth, and defending the planet against the very real dangers from outer space through the policies of the Strategic Defense of Earth.

"The immediate implementation of Glass-Steagall, however, is the absolutely irreplaceable mandatory first step, without which none of the other objectives has any chance of realization.

"Our common development is the new name of peace and the only alternative to thermonuclear war."
