The Lead

Organizing Works! Do More of It

by Dennis Small (EIRNS) — Mar. 25, 2024

March 25, 2024 (EIRNS)—Even as the March 22 terror attack in Russia, the sharply escalating Russia-Ukraine war, and ongoing NATO plans to put boots on the ground in Ukraine threaten to push the planet over the edge into thermonuclear war, those who would stop such insanity should take careful note of two developments over the last 48 hours.

First, the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), who represent a growing current among American military and intelligence circles, issued a March 24 urgent open letter to President Joe Biden, “VIPS MEMO: The French Road to Nuclear War” (“Subject: On the Brink of Nuclear War") in which they warn that French President Emmanuel Macron’s repeated calls to put NATO troops on the ground in Ukraine “would be leading the American people down a path toward a nuclear conflict decidedly not in the interests of the American people—or of humanity itself.”

Second, a UN Security Council resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza was finally approved on March 25—because the United States didn’t veto it, like it had every previous such resolution, but this time only abstained. This is a far cry from what is needed to actually stop the genocide underway and provide humanitarian life support to Gaza’s 2.3 million people—let alone to implement a full development program, such as LaRouche’s Oasis Plan—but it does show that the Biden administration is feeling the political heat.

The heat is coming from a shocked American population, many of whom have taken to the streets to make their opposition to the genocide known—and threaten Biden’s reelection. And the heat is also coming from a rapidly growing majority of what is already the Global Majority of nations and peoples, who have made it clear that they will no longer submit to 500 years of colonial rule and more modern looting of their economies by the speculative policies of the bankrupt City of London and Wall Street financial system.

The Schiller Institute, and allies such as those in the International Peace Coalition, have been intensely involved in organizing the forces to make that political heat grow, both in the U.S. and Europe, as well as the nations of the South. From that we draw a simple conclusion: Organizing works! But a lot more needs to be done, and quickly.

As Helga Zepp-LaRouche said in a discussion with associates today:

“I think we are on a very steep and potentially very short trajectory towards nuclear war, if we do not succeed to somehow inject some reason into the situation. And the key problem is still what Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán characterized as the two galaxies, when he attended the EU summit in Brussels, where he said when he saw what kind of warmongering trip these people were on, it was like entering a second galaxy.

“You have some people who are extremely aware of it and are in actual shock and horror about what the implications of this are; and then you have on the other side, the representatives of the other galaxy, who think they can drive this forward endlessly without any result, or with assumed capitulation or defeat of Russia, which in the world of nuclear weapons is an impossibility. So, it is really breathtaking….

“The world is clearly in a terrible, dangerous condition. I think that we really have to mobilize to get some kind of a breakthrough… [make our] Oasis Plan conference a real demonstration that there is a completely different method of conflict resolution, which is peaceful development…. We have to get people to step forward and not sit like rabbits in front of a snake until it is too late.”
