LaRouche: Although Clinton's Defeat Was Necessary, “I Wouldn't Depend on Trump”
The two most important aspects of the victory of Donald Trump are, first, that it was a total repudiation of the direction of the last 16 years, under George W. Bush and Barack Obama, which Hillary Clinton pledged to continue, and secondly, it offers the potential for the United States to dump the dangerous provocations against Russia and China, as well as the whole permanent war policy.
However, American political leader Lyndon LaRouche warned on Nov. 10 that it would be a mistake to "depend on Trump" to do what is necessary. Rather, his movement has to depend on its own forces to put through the program that's needed.
We need a new system, he said, “not Trump's system, but a new system.” The crucial problem, he went on, "is that we do not have a defined international system which will secure peace. It doesn't exist yet, and we've got to make it."
LaRouche also identified the key strategic role of Vladimir Putin, and his collaboration with the Chinese, in the BRICS and in realizing the potential of the "New Silk Road", as essential features in moving beyond war avoidance, and successful counter-terrorism, to a commitment to realize the "common aims of mankind."
In the aftermath of the Nov. 8 elections, the LaRouche movement in Washington began mobilizing the Congress to support the specific program necessary for the U.S. to participate in the creation of the new paradigm, which requires enacting LaRouche's “Four Basic Laws”. While President-elect Trump campaigned for restoring Glass-Steagall, the first of those four, and has called for a major investment in infrastructure and industry, the third of LaRouche's laws, he will not succeed unless the funding of such projects is done through establishing a National Bank of the U.S., based on adopting a Hamiltonian credit policy, which is LaRouche's second law. In any case, to get Congress to act on these first three laws will require an intense political fight against the Wall Street interests.
These forces have made clear they will not tolerate Glass-Steagall, and will only accept infrastructure built through the phony private-public funding plans, which would sabotage a real Franklin Roosevelt approach to public investment in infrastructure. The voters showed on Nov. 8, and in pre-election polls, which showed overwhelming support for Glass-Steagall and breaking up the Big Banks, that they can be organized to support LaRouche's program.
This point highlights the Fourth Law, which is the adoption of a science driver, including space science and nuclear fusion. By putting the government behind such a program, the population can be brought to understand the importance of participating in the peaceful, future-oriented course represented today by the New Silk Road, and beyond, by the World Land-Bridge.
