Zepp-LaRouche: 'Everything Depends on the United States Returning to Its Republican Identity'
October 6, 2014 • 8:14AM

On Sunday evening, Helga Zepp-LaRouche emphasized that everything depends on getting the United States to return to the paradigm which prevailed before the assassination of John F. Kennedy, to return to being a Republic again. We are currently at what Friedrich Schiller would call a "pregnant moment" in history, where the future of civilization depends on leadership.

The battle for a new planetary system, spearheaded by Lyndon LaRouche for more than 40 years, is on the verge of coming to fruition.

Zepp-LaRouche stressed the importance of the appointment of former Swiss Parliamentarian Jean Ziegler to head the UN Human Rights Council's commission to investigate the predatory activity of vulture funds now preying on Argentina and other nations. Ziegler has investigated banking criminality for years. Helga called his appointment "a bombshell," citing one of his books entitled, We Let Them Die, in reference to the deliberate policies of the financial oligarchy which have caused mass starvation.

Other developments of significance in the fight for development include the results of the Brazilian presidential election on October 5. Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff won the first round with 41 percent of the vote. Aecio Neves came in second with 35 percent. There will now be a run-off between the two on October 26. Most significant is that Marina Silva, the British Empire's environmentalist, came in third with only 21 percent. These election results mean that Brazil remains firmly in BRICS and the new planetary system based on development which is now emerging.

Also of great significance, according to Lyndon LaRouche, are developments surrounding North and South Korea. During the recent UN General Assembly, the foreign minister of North Korea called for the reunification of North and South Korea on a confederation basis. On October 4, a meeting occurred in Inchon, between high-level South Korean and North Korean officials, and another meeting has been scheduled for late October or early November.

At the same time, the North Korean foreign minister arrived in Moscow on Sept. 30 for a 10-day visit, in which both sides are discussing increasing trade between Russia and North Korea and various development projects associated with the BRICS.

Lyndon LaRouche commented that "something very interesting is going on. There is a probability of the two Koreas coming to a peace arrangement."

In the U.S., a group of 20 to 50 Congressmen continue to organize a behind-the-scenes effort to replace John Boehner as speaker of the House. Lyndon LaRouche said Saturday that Boehner's removal is a "keystone issue. If Boehner is thrown out we can bring in a new policy. This is very important. Boehner is only a shill, but he is an active shill."

Perhaps the most important development in the United States, however, was the quality of dialogue struck between Mr. LaRouche and his associates during the live webcast Friday night.
