The End of History.
"You are too kind," said Indira. "You are talking about small consequences. No one will ever know how many hundreds of millions of people have already been killed worldwide as a consequence of the synarchist originated ban of the DDT pesticide," said Indira. "DDT had nearly eradicated malaria throughout the world. Now, after the ban, malaria is back to the tune of hundreds of millions of cases. And all this is done deliberately to kill human beings. Even one of the synarchists' own scientists, one of the people who helped banned DDT, said that the 'only danger' that he saw in DDT, was that it enabled too many people to live. Yes, that is what he said. This ban has killed hundreds of millions of people already, as surely as if the synarchists had bombed them to death. Compared to this single deliberate attack on humanity, which is but one of many on the same scale, the destruction of America would be a relatively small event by comparison. So, Ross, we can't say; Will they do it? They are doing worse things already, especially in Africa."
Indira stopped and began to cry, evidently remembering from personal experience the horrid dimension of what she was talking about.
"That is also the reason why Africa must remain to be one of our primary focal points," I said to her, and to everyone. "Rescuing Africa is the Strategic Defense Initiative in today's age. We must never loose sight of this necessity, even now while we have much more urgent problems to think about. Our passion for human life, universally, is our strength. The fondi killed Nicolai for it in a most horrible way. By doing this atrocious thing, they revealed a severe weakness in their flanks. Nicolai had already hit them on this, and it had hurt them. We must remake Nicolai's strategic example into our own platform for a global humanist SDI. Nicolai's Africa project must remain a part of it. That's a project that must succeed anyway, for the defense of humanity. So, let's give it a dual meaning."
Steve reminded us that LaRouche had developed the original SDI concept not merely for the defense of the USA alone, but for the common defense of humanity. "Yes, the fondi and their minions had put LaRouche in jail," he said, "in order to prevent the idea of a real strategic defense from succeeding and spreading around the world. Well the succeeded in stopping it. Society had lost that round. That is why we still have nuclear weapons today, and the fondi are still king!"
"I say, our loosing trend has to stop," I interrupted Steve. "Naturally, they will want to shut our SDI project down in the same manner. They want to shut it down, because our goal is the same. So, let's not allow them to do this. Our goal is the strategic defense of humanity. If focusing on the rescue of Africa will get the ball rolling big time. Let's do this big time. LaRouche's SDI goal had been intended to be a big time project, to set in motion the joint the development of the global economy, by which nuclear weapons would been obsoleted. Let's take this approach and take it one step further and not stop until the fondi themselves become obsolete. That approach was the key element of LaRouche's SDI proposal, wasn't it? We must be rallying around the same principle and hit the fondi with it, and make our Africa SDI effort a success. I think we can shut the fondi down and save the world at the same time. All that we need to do, is get a movement going in that direction in a really big way. Even the physical means that we require are the same as those that LaRouche had proposed for his SDI. He had proposed the development of new physical principles. His proposal is just as valid for our larger SDI project, especially in regard to Africa; such as the development of nuclear fusion energy systems; high speed transportation systems; continent wide water distribution networks; sub-oceanic fresh water storage facilities that are fed by all of Africa's great rivers. Yes, they had put LaRouche in jail, and they did kill Nicolai, but the SDI concept must never be allowed to vanish from humanity's sight. If we let this slip out of our hands this time, we will not survive long. This is guaranteed. the first slip has cost humanity dearly. If we let this slip out of our hands a second time, we do have earned the fate that follows."
Everyone agreed with that assessment except Heather. "We are not looking at the whole picture yet," she said. "There is more to it. I think Nicolai had hit the empire at a much deeper level than is apparent on the surface. I think he hit them with an 'atomic bomb' that could endanger the existence of the entire global oligarchy, and with it every empire on the planet."
Heather looked at me. "Peter, you should know what this is," she said, "since Nicolai and Anton had invited you to be a part of it."
Those words hit me like a 'ton of bricks,' as people say. I began to cry. Of course, that's what it was. Nicolai's plans for our triple wedding ceremony, that he was so exuberant about, must have reached the ears of the fondi. The Christ Principle behind it, the Principle of the universal unity of good, must have scared the fondi to death. His triple wedding idea was designed to openly represent the principle of the universal marriage of humanity, which in turn is but a subset of the still larger, all-embracing Principle of the essential universal unity of all good. I explained to everyone that if humanity were to embrace all of these underlying universal principles, especially the already existing universal marriage of humanity to one another, and were to build build itself up to the realization the larger Principle of the universal unity of good, the oligarchic system would cease to exist without a hope of ever coming back. I suggested that Nicolai may have realized that without a global development of these principles, the vital redevelopment of Africa would never be carried out. I suggested that this might have prompted his triple wedding idea, to focus on all of these principles simultaneously. I pointed out that he might also have realized that if we don't set our goals high enough, we may not find it possible to attain the smaller goal of eradicating the fondi. I suggested that Anton might have been the fondi's target also, together with Nicolai.
"And what about yourself?" Heather asked me. "Obviously, you are therefore just as prominently on their target list as the third member of the triad. In fact, we are probably all on their target list."
"I agree," I said, "the fondi might be trying to disable all of us by making cowards of us all. They probably reckoned, that once we realized what the bombing of Murmansk was all about, we would remember what they had told us way back in Venice; that we are but amateurs in their sight; that we could do nothing to stop them. This means that we are all at risk. But then, we are all at risk anyway."
"The question is, do we comply and become cowards," said Heather, "or do we fight them on every weak flank until we win?"
"If we become cowards, then we have already lost," I replied. "Besides, we couldn't do this if we wanted to. Remember how boring life was ten years ago, when nothing vital was happening anymore, when the most exiting thing that happened was to sit in front of Ross' fireplace to read bed-time stories to one another with a cup of hot chocolate in hand? We were stuck in a rut then. We were as dead! We can't go back to that. We can only move forward. Since the fondi have declared war on us, let's fight them on every flank that they told us they are vulnerable at, and win. Since they put us on their target list, lets not give them a chance to take the offensive. Let's wipe them out first!"
"But how?" Ushi asked.
