Xinhuanet Interviews Lyndon LaRouche on War Danger, Glass-Steagall
As of August 3, Xinhuanet, the official press agency of the People's Republic of China, posted a lengthy interview with economist Lyndon LaRouche, which was conducted by reporter Zhang Mian on July 27, 2013.
In answer to the first question as to what could be done to put the United States back on track, LaRouche noted that the nation is now at a critical point, and a huge fight is on. "We have a very serious and increasingly effective movement toward a change in the policy of the United States, which could be realized in the weeks and months immediately ahead. It's at least a chance to succeed." That motion is "is partly a response to the hatred against Wall Street and what Wall Street and the British Empire represent, " and it "could possibly cause a complete change in the policy of the United States.
"From my standpoint, that change is absolutely necessary," LaRouche went on. "Because the danger is not some minor thing; the danger is an imminent threat of global thermonuclear war. And thermonuclear war, if organized on a full scale today, would be the virtual extinction of the human species. So therefore, we're at the most serious struggle in the entire history of mankind. For the first in human history, it is possible that the human species become extinct."
At another point, Zhang Mian noted that LaRouche has been "pushing the revival of Glass-Steagall for years, so why is the Glass-Steagall act so important, and how will it benefit the U.S. economy, as well as the global economy?" In his reply, LaRouche insisted that the Glass-Steagall principle, enacted under President Franklin Roosevelt, is actually an affirmation of the original intent of the United States Constitution, in terms of building up the real economy of the nation, as opposed to the monetarist system of looting imposed at the time, and today, by the British Empire, or better said, the "Anglo-Dutch empire".
"But if Glass-Steagall is established, I will be able to assure you that our policy will be in a direction which will avoid this warfare, and will end the process of depression which is running throughout the world."
As to the situation in China, LaRouche noted that "with the collapse of Europe, which is now coming on fast -- and the collapse of the United States, which is coming only slightly slower than Europe -- under those conditions, China's economy is going to collapse too. Not as rapidly as Europe or the United States, but rapidly. And therefore, there is no economic solution, unless we defeat this process.
The solution, he said, is to get rid of the Anglo-Dutch system and the euro system. "Crush it, get rid of it. Let the nations become nations again."
"We have to create a new world, a new world which is based on a commitment to high technology, because only by increasing the technological potential of the nations of the planet, can we possibly work our way out of this problem. That could be done. China is potentially a very important part of the world now. Because if China is able to operate within an atmosphere of the world, which is now moving upward, rather than downward, which is hitting China now -- the downward trend in Europe and in the United States is hitting China. And China should be doing much more high technology things, but that has to be possible.
"We can create, if we win this fight, we can create an agreement among leading nations of the world, to change the general direction of the history of this planet in modern times. And we have to do it. Because we have to increase all kinds of resources which we don't have now, if we're going to maintain mankind on this planet."
