You Must Know What President Macron Has Done
10 January 2018
LPAC—French President Emmanuel Macron, in his speech in Xian on the first leg of his visit to China, has unleashed a highly significant intervention into the nearly universal idiocy dominating the European Union. To make a transformation of this sort requires, first, the acknowledgment of the horror now dominating the political and economic conditions in the West, and the degenerate frame of mind of the elites, the media and much of the population in Europe and the United States. Secondly, it requires acknowledgment of the historic New Paradigm unleashed by China’s New Silk Road. Third, it requires the vision to see that bringing Europe and the United States to fully join with China’s Belt and Road Initiative, as nearly the entire rest of the world has done, provides the necessary basis for creating the new world order based on peace and development.
And Macron has taken a mojor step to accomplish theese three measures — although you certainly would not know it reading the Western press.
On the first, Macron noted that China
On the strategic side, Macron said the West must overcome the "unilateral imperialism" conducted by France and other European powers in Africa and elsewhere, adding:
He spoke directly against the geopolitical paradigm dominating Western thought:
He referred to the West as a "tired, post-modern world, where the great epics were forbidden."
And most importantly, Macron identified the New Silk Road as the connection required between all peoples to achieve this new world order. "I think that the initiative of the New Silk Roads," he said,
He praised China its work in Africa, where "China has invested heavily in recent years, on infrastructure, raw materials, with a financial force that European countries do not have." He called for French-Chinese cooperation in Africa, to "carry out projects that are really useful for the growth of the continent, financially sustainable — because the future is there, because we must not reproduce the mistakes of the past of creating political and financial dependence, under the pretext of development."
Most of the Western press, if they cover the visit at all, foolishly portrays it as "anti-Trump," or a lecture to China to open its markets. This again demonstrates that Western leaders and their media spokespersons are unwilling, or unable, to part with their geopolitical glasses, their zero-sum, Darwinian mentality.
Helga Zepp-LaRouche, reflecting on Macron’s extraordinary visit, noted that those nations which fail to join in the New Silk Road will be left behind in history. Yet the winds of historical change are blowing in the direction of this New Paradigm. President Trump has embraced China’s crucial role in history and for the future; Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has pledged to co-finance projects with China along the New Silk Road; and now France is breaking from the resistance to the New Silk Road coming from the EU, and from Germany in particular.
