Schiller Institute International Conference, April 15 & 16, 2023

Printable version / Version imprimable

SI—We call on people of good will around the world – notwithstanding our diverse and natural differences – to participate in this process of deliberation and search for peaceful solutions, including a thorough examination of the alternative economic policies to replace speculation, which has generated so much poverty and suffering, with a system of production and progress to meet the needs of a growing world population.”

The world urgently needs a new security and development architecture, which represents the interest of every single country on the planet. Helga Zepp-LaRouche has suggested Ten Principles as a basis for such an architecture. The three initiatives of President Xi Jinping, the Global Security Initiative (GSI), the Global Development Initiative (GDI), and the Global Civilization Initiative (GCI) are a close representation of this concept.

PANEL 1—Sat. April 15, 9H00 a.m.ET:

The Growing Danger of World War III Underlines the Necessity for a New Security Architecture

Invite Friends to participate

(Moderator: Dennis Speed)

There is growing, extreme concern that the present geopolitical confrontation between the U.S., the U.K. and NATO on the one side, and Russia and China on the other, could lead to an escalation into a global, possibly nuclear war. This is expressed in a variety of peace plans addressed to the Ukraine war, from China’s Xi Jinping, Brazil’s Lula da Silva, Turkiye’s Recep Erdoğan, and Pope Francis. What is required now is to move rapidly beyond geopolitics into a new security and development architecture which takes into account the interests of every country on the planet.

PANEL 2—Sat. April 15, 1:00 p.m. ET:

The “Global Majority” and the International Peace Movement Are Fighting for the Same Goal

(Moderator: Stephan Ossenkopp)

The nations of the so-called “Global South,” recently described accurately as the “Global Majority,” are drawing the line at the further looting of their nations and destruction of their sovereignty by the so-called “Rules-Based Order.” They are committed to putting an end to colonialism once and for all. The emerging peace movement in Europe and the United States, as it puts aside divisive ideologies, is addressing the same underlying problem: that the collapsing trans-Atlantic financial system is the driving force towards war.

End the Casino Economy Before It’s Too Late

Moderator: Claudio Celani, EIR Strategic Alert (Italy)

The systemic collapse of the trans-Atlantic financial system is destroying the physical economy of entire nations, and is driving the world towards war. There is a renewed discussion about the need for a Glass-Steagall bankruptcy reorganization of the international financial system in order to end the casino economy, as well as the need for Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws. The world and every nation in it must move back to physical economy instead of monetarist values. A key example of that is the farm sector, which needs to be able to provide for the international food requirements of the world’s population. A manifesto of farmers from around the world is in preparation, and will be discussed during this panel.

PANEL 4—Sun. April 16, 12:30 p.m.-3:00 p.m., ET:

The Necessary Philosophical Foundations for the New Paradigm

Moderator: Helga Zepp-LaRouche Schiller Institute (Germany)

Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche last November proposed Ten Principles as the basis for bringing about a new international security and development architecture. These include the need to put Man’s physical-economic practice, centered on scientific and cultural creativity, in coherence with the laws of the physical universe; and the underlying philosophical issues of the image of Man, including the affirmation that Man is characteristically good, and that all evil is the result of lack of development—and therefore can be eliminated.
