The Fall of Zeus
The Fall of Zeus

…Doomsday is rolling in on the transatlantic economy like a heavy British fog.
Lyndon LaRouche, Feb 27, 2015
The following are a paraphrase of remarks made by Lyndon LaRouche during a discussion preceding the regular LaRouchePAC weekly webcast on February 27, 2015.
We have initiated a critical turning point this week with what I have said beginning Tuesday. The way in which things were being formulated prior was wrong and reflected a degree of stupidity which comes when people believe in myths. The myth is that this system can somehow survive. It can’t! The entire thing is doomed by its own hand, and anyone who believes in this system is an idiot.
What was required was for me to take this issue out of the domain of broad generalities that appeal to popular opinion and to put it instead in very precise terms. This has now been circulating and we’ve begun to get people responding. If the Obama option is allowed to go forward, despite any pretenses he may have to limit this as a conflict on the Eurasian continent, we will be facing an extinction warfare in very short order. The Joint Chiefs of Staff will recognize the validity of what I’ve said, and they will not be willing to allow that consequence to occur. Therefore, Obama must be put under strict control as swiftly as possible.
At times like this, it’s not muscular power which moves history. It won’t come from overwhelming the enemy through numbers or force. It’s the very system itself which can no longer exist. It can’t continue to exist because of its own inability to exist. Therefore, its doom is inevitable. They are already doomed, they’re just pretending. It’s like the walking dead. It’s not just a matter of whether they make a mistake or not. There’s no way within this universe that they can exist. Merely by their own continued adherence to their own existence are they finishing themselves.
Watch the February 27, 2015 webcast featuring Jeffrey Steinberg, Benjamin Deniston, and Dennis Small elaborating the discussion with Lyndon LaRouche.
It required my insight to see beyond popular opinion and the stupidity of the myths that people tend to believe in. People believe in myths, and the existence of this system is a myth. It cannot survive. The question is, who will finish them? Will they finish themselves, as well as the rest of us along with them? Or, will we finish them, and replace them with something that actually possesses viability to exist?
Tell the truth: they are doomed! One way or another, they’re doomed. The question is — will you continue to go along with them or not? That’s what I did this week. We must cause people to recognize this reality, and cause this system to be dumped. It cannot be saved, no matter what.
Take Greece for example. This is clear. Greece is going to be a real trigger. They have no option. They don’t have to honor in any way that which they do not owe. The advantage is theirs. They are in no way obliged to honor what they do not wish to. What they will do is to make a deal with Russia. Just look at the map! They’re going to leave the Euro, they have no choice. Germany, others are going to push them out. When they leave, however, the whole system will collapse. The entire Wall Street and related system will come tumbling down. It will be a sweeping financial collapse, it will come on like a torrent. An unstoppable torrent. Just because it hasn’t happened yet, people will tend to assume that it will not happen. But it will! And it will have a chain reaction effect on the entire Euro system. And the present management of that system will disintegrate. France is already turning its back on this.
The lesson of Greece is: these guys are doomed! They cannot pay, and they won’t. That’s all there is to it. There is no way in this universe that this system can survive. Schauble is out of his mind to try to defend this thing. Anyone who is committing themselves to a system which is already doomed is clinically insane. There is no one who can win that game. No one! They must be stupid, or senile, to believe that they can. This whole system is hopelessly bankrupt, and has been for a very long time. We’ve known that to be the case. Now its in its death knell. Sound it!
And what is waiting out there to replace it? The BRICS system. This is actually viable. This has viability to exist. Compare the transatlantic system to what these nations are doing. What is happening in Asia has viability, it has the capability to actually work. The transatlantic system does not! And therefore, it will be replaced. This is already in motion! You’ve just got a little problem coming from this corner of the world, however. A nuisance. The walking dead.
And anyone who believes in this system is an idiot. It’s already dead! The only thing you can do is replace the bankrupt system with a non-bankrupt system. And anyone who’s intelligent or sane knows that it’s time to move your economy out of the graveyard and find a new address. The Greeks are doing this. They’re establishing close ties with Russia, with China, with other viable nations, and as a result, a great rejuvenation will occur very soon. Greece will return to its legacy as a great maritime power!
Look at what’s happening in Ukraine. We’re looking at real genocide here. Putin’s use of this language was calculated and absolutely correct. Because we’re dealing with Nazis here! Victoria Nuland and her killer gang of Nazis. We know that Nazis have taken over Ukraine, seizing power through a coup, and carrying out atrocities against the people of Ukraine. Under the direction of whom? Victoria Nuland and her allies here in Washington!
Or take for example Netanyahu. He is brutish and insane. This has gone too far and it’s time that he is thrown out with the political garbage. Anyone with an ounce of sanity will recognize that this is not going to work. Working out a secret deal with the Saudis to launch strikes against Iran? That’s going too far. When he starts bargaining and making deals with the Saudis, then he’s gone too far. It’s time to dump this guy. And John Boehner too. Make it a package deal. You’ve already got a number of these members of congress announcing that they’re going to boycott, that they’re just going to not show up. I’d say it’s time for this guy to be dumped. And probably a lot of people in his own country would agree with me.
We must recognize the winds and tides of history. Don’t get stubborn and try to resist. Set your sails accordingly. Choose your voyage, chart your course, ensure you’ve picked the right mission and direction, and set sail! …Our job is to make history move! Don’t try to explain why history is moving. Be the cause of its movement, and create the future!

The point is, history is not a mechanical process. It’s not a muscle-game. There are higher processes, higher orders. You can’t bet on them. You have to recognize, that one way or another, this system is doomed. And it’s not because I said so. It’s because it’s true! And that’s what I did this week. I simply said what others weren’t saying. I pointed out what others were refusing to see. We’ve reached a turning point this week. I didn’t create it, I just pointed it out. And people responded. We shouldn’t react to what’s given to us; we should respond to what’s not given to us. That’s leadership. Tell the truth, don’t try to interpret other people’s nonsense. Only then are you qualified to make policy
Doomsday is rolling in on the transatlantic economy like a heavy British fog. And we need to be the winds that blow those clouds away. How do we do that? Just say the truth! Wall Street is inherently bankrupt, it’s claiming assets it does not have. Don’t try to negotiate with the dead. Just give the system its proper burial and replace it with a system which has viability to exist.
A sweeping change is needed. This whole system is falling apart. Everything is going wrong. The only thing it has to offer is dark age and war. What we need is a Nicholas of Cusa, who created the possibility of modern civilization. And his predecessor, Brunelleschi — the literal architect of the Renaissance! He cast the shadows of the human mind, and Cusa defined its actuality. And this laid the foundation then for Kepler, who in turn laid the basis for the work of Leibniz following him. That’s where we have to go today.
We must recognize the winds and tides of history. Don’t get stubborn and try to resist. Set your sails accordingly. Choose your voyage, chart your course, ensure you’ve picked the right mission and direction, and set sail! China’s doing this. Others are doing this. There are whole areas of the world who are doing this! We’ve got to realize that our job is to make history move! Don’t try to explain why history is moving. Be the cause of its movement, and create the future!
We are experiencing now the fall of Zeus. Our job is to cook his goose!
