As stated clearly and loudly by American economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche since July 2007, the complete meltdown of the global financial system is unavoidable. The policies of usury, deindustrialization and Malthusianism which have swept the world over the recent 40 years herald an untimely end to our present civilization if we were not to acknowledge the requirements of survival. Only an alliance between the United States, Russia, China and India for the replacement of this monetary system with a fixed exchange rate credit system, based upon respect for national sovereignty, would permit the financing of a true recovery of the world economy by way of great infrastructure projects. However, this alliance is impossible unless the United States breaks with the British inspired policies of the current Obama administration(2), which run completely against the American constitution: Whether by Nazi healthcare rationing or the infinite bailout of banks. The United States must urgently renew its anti-colonial tradition best exemplified by Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
Canada and Nuclear Energy
From this perspective of real economic development, we have no choice but to develop nuclear energy. Since man's first creative use of fire, an act which distinguishes him from the beast, humankind has progressed by continuously increasing the energy flux density of power sources in use. Today, the fact is, that only nuclear fission (transiting to nuclear fusion) is capable of sustaining 6.7 billion and more human lives. In this respect, Canada would assume a leading role in the necessary global recovery but alas, this present government's intention to auction off this vital Canadian nuclear technology (AECL) exposes the tragic behavior of our political and economic elite; To rid ourselves of these technologies for a quick financial gain is
comparable to a man who sells his children to pay his gambling debts.
The Sky is the Limit
The long overdue great projects, which Canada must play a leading role in building, have been halted continuously due in part to the financial monopoly on the control of credit as also due to decades of environmentalist propaganda of the British Empire. If we seriously consider the planetary needs for the next 50-100 years, it is clear that the development of a global system of high speed rail, and magnetic levitation, built across the Bering Strait tunnel uniting the world as one continent, holds the key to unlocking our greatest potential. This orientation also looks to developing the vast natural resources of Siberia, Alaska and the great Canadian north, along with the construction of advanced arctic cities which will transform minerals on site. The long overdue NAWAPA project (3), would significantly increase hydroelectric and irrigation capacities to the North American territories and must be considered an integral part of these promising transformations of the great Canadian north.
Yet we must set our sights still higher than the great Canadian north. Humankind must return to space, although not by simply sending a few robotic soil samplers, but with human explorers, and engineers who will take part in the development of the Moon. This would not only permit our access to the Moon's bountiful (but terrestrially rare) helium-3 which is the best fuel for thermonuclear fusion, but greater still, this endeavor would lead into the permanent establishment of a manned based colony on Mars, whereby the solar system and the universe beyond will then be finally accessible as man's rightful sphere of activity.
A true political economy is before us; a new system to build the future is within reach. It needs from us a commitment to begin to resolve today the problems of tomorrow. It is this policy for the future, which differentiates the human from the monkey, and which will inspire within the population the moral force and optimism that would finally allow for the successful rejection of imperial ecological and financial policies, and let us get on with real development, a physical economy, elevating man to his most dignified expression as a willful creative force acting on the universe for the general welfare.
