Humanity For Peace Aug 6, 2023 - NYC (Part 2)

 Part Two continues covering the Humanity for Peace Memorial ( Part 1)

"Was this a peace memorial or a political campaign, crusade, drive, grassroots movement, lobby, and/or a popular front.

Aug 6, 2023 in Dag Hammarsk├Âld Plaza, across from the U.N. with Hiroshima/Nagasaki as the forgotten step-child.

One of the many sponsors was Caleb Maupin (Center for Political Innovation)

"The crisis facing the United States, exacerbated by the pandemic, is rooted in the capitalist system. The US has embraced insane, libertarian neo-liberal economics. [ ...] The public is viewed by the ruling elite as an obnoxious horde to be controlled and managed. The United States and the rest of the world are being reduced to greater poverty, in order to ensure that a clique of big bankers and international monopolies can stay at the top of a global high-tech economy. The danger of a new world war hangs over the USA, as it threatens countries like China, Russia, Iran, and Venezuela."

 Caleb Maupin represents the younger generation and their dedication to Socialism. Caleb seems to be one of the many who supports La Rouche/Schiller in tandem with hard Left / Socialist/Communist cohorts.

He is a widely acclaimed speaker, writer, journalist, and political analyst and has traveled extensively in the Middle East and in Latin America.

A previous post re Socialism and the Left (2018) Caleb for 16 minutes walks the streets of NY while tracing the economic history of socialism and why capitalism is the problem . [@RealCalebMaupin] 

IN CONCLUSION, " We need to tell people in the United States that Socialism will make your lives better and it's capitalism that's causing so much misery and insecurity." (15:36 to 16:10)

 

Caleb T. Maupin has been involved in many struggles for social justice (as) an outspoken advocate of international friendship and cooperation, as well 21st Century Socialism. CPIUSA.org : Center for Political Innovation [@RealCPIUSA]

= A flash back to “Caleb 2012”: a long-haired, NoKo sycophant ranting on the streets of NY, (video clip at link

 
defending North Korea from defamation while defending North Korean Communism to the Times Sq passersby [and riffing on this reporter at the top of the clip [riff 0:11 to 00:47]
                                                       
 
This is a far cry (hair-wise) from Caleb Maupin 2023. Now so clean cut as he moves from street agitator to suited reporter at Press (Iran ) TV and  RT- Russian TV, claiming to love America, 
even though he believes Capitalism is the problem.
 
"Why do I have “right-wing” friends now? Because most of my “left-wing” friends stabbed me in the back, and turned on me out of Trump Derangement Syndrome. My beliefs have remained the same. I want to stop WW3. I support all anti-imperialist countries. I oppose Western Capitalism. I advocate empowering the US working class to create a Socialist Society in America."
 
 
"The “woke” left does not believe this, and signing on with them means turning on anyone who does. I refused to change. I’ve been to global communist gatherings. I’ve met with youth from DPRK, China, Vietnam, Cuba and other socialist countries. I know what this stuff is really about and I’m down for the whole thing. I won’t be “wokified.” I’ll build @realcpiusa and work with anyone I can to carry out our minimum, maximum and transitional program."
 
Caleb asks: Will the Trump MAGA crowd open a path to Socialism? - MAGA and the Crisis of Capitalism.
 
China, Russia, Venezuela, Nicaragua are showing how growth can actually be achieved.... Controlled means of production to ensure economic growth. It is what the MAGA people want, but they revolt against it because of the term "Socialism".... the "fight" will be between Fascism and Socialism.'
 
The Next Generation Communists/Socialists are nurtured in our schools and colleges - they do not chose their path, they are CHOSEN with relentless propaganda .... Watching Caleb march up the ladder of totalitarianism, seems a waste of brains and talent, yet so many like him are also dedicated to this New Normal: SOCIALISM.
 
 
.... that confuses, then claims the next (victim) convert.

What happened to Nord Stream 2 pipeline?

Gas deliveries ceased in September 2022 following the destruction of three of the pipe lines and sanctions linked to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As of February 2023, there is no conclusive evidence of who carried out the sabotage despite three separate investigations by Denmark, Germany, and Sweden.

Six commercial maglev systems are currently in operation around the world. One is located in Japan, two in South Korea, and three in China. Jul 13, 2023

 There are several disadvantages to maglev trains:
- Maglev guide paths are more costly than conventional steel railway tracks. Because the magnetic coils and material used in this setup are very costly.
- Maglev trains require an all-new set up right from the scratch. It is hard to be done as well as costly.
- As present railway infrastructure is of no use for maglev, it will either have to be replaced with the maglev system or an entirely new set up will have to be created; both of them will need a huge amount of cost for initial investments.
- Although maglev is pretty quiet, noise caused by air disturbance still occurs.
- Maglev trains are feasible only in urban areas.

China is now the proud parent of a National Maglev Transportation Technology Research Center. The revered Chengdu Aircraft Industry Cooperation (CAC) in South Central China is also dedicating significant resources to maglev.  China now has its own research programmes and says that it can do maglev better and cheaper than Germany or Japan. The growing number of maglev enthusiasts hope that its optimism is not unfounded. For now, the future of maglev seems likely to rest on these Oriental entrepreneurs" (These trains are very costly )

The BRICS group of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa has emerged as a formidable economic and geopolitical power.

BRICS Countries

In 2006, the foreign ministers of Brazil, Russia, India, and China met for the first time ... marking the beginning of BRIC cooperation.... In 2011, with South Africa officially becoming a member, BRIC was enlarged to BRICS.  ...in 2017, China successfully hosted the BRICS Xiamen Summit.

How long will the dollar last as the world’s default currency? The BRICS nations are gathering in South Africa this August with it on the agenda.

Not happy with Scott Ritter- NY Times 2012


 

Scott Ritter, a former UN weapons inspector in the 1990s, and a Marine Corps analyst during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan a decade prior, is among the cohort of Americans courted by Russian propaganda sources.

Recently, he launched a tour of his new book, “Disarmament in the time of the Perestroika,” in Russia, and presented it in cities such as Kazan, Irkutsk and Yekaterinburg. The book, he claims, aims to warn the US public about not seeking out escalations with Russia which could lead to a nuclear attack and insists the Western public has forgotten how difficult it was to achieve these agreements in the first place. [Euro-News  2023]

"Recently, he launched a ferocious debate after publishing an article alleging the US had bombed the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The controversial gas route through the Baltic Sea was supposed to circumvent countries like Ukraine and Poland – Russia’s main political opponents even before the invasion -- in delivering gas to the western part of the continent."

 The New World Order/ The New Normal.

Are we there yet?
Part 1 of 2
.

Aug 6, 2023. The Humanity for Peace Memorial in Dag Hammarsk├Âld Plaza across from the U. N.,"Was this really a memorial, or politics as usual."

 
 
This year the speeches from survivors
 of Hiroshima/Nagasaki, were missing.

Image result

Past memorials to Aug 6, 1945 I attended
"No More Hiroshimas/No More Nagasakis"
You knew why you were there.
 
 
 
 
In 2023 they began with a familiar monk.
 

 . I arrived about 15 min late and saw this monk as he left ... he always rings a prayer bell and says a prayer. (picture from 2022)

But,  as the event continued, the list of speakers (and signs) seemed to be more politically focused. Opposed to nuclear war, yes, but promoting La Rouche/Schiller and Socialism in tandem with Communism and hard-left politics was the prevailing theme. (which seems schizo when linking to their odd history)


 
.There was another opening prayer from the Rev. Dr. Terri L. Strong. She also warned of the potential for Nuclear War on this the 78th Anniversary of Hiroshima/Nagasaki. (video)

 

 
And then, on to politics. Lots of politics
 
 

Gerald Celente is the speaker in this next clip (born 1946) publisher of the Trends Journal, business consultant and author who makes predictions about the global financial markets and other important events. (video) He was an engaging speaker- so New Yawk.
 

  [

 

Gerald describes himself as a “political atheist” and “citizen of the world.” He has dedicated his life to finding meaningful change for peace and is also the founder and driving force behind OccupyPeace.us/

Created in 2015  ....
  
 
".... designed to stir grassroots initiatives across the country to demand peace by holding elected officials accountable for senselessly prompting war to build other nations and regime change while, at every turn, stripping We The People of our rights at home – invading our privacy, limiting our right to free speech, and subjecting us to military tactics imposed by our local police department."
 
International Peace Coalition & World Wide Peace           

The La Roche- Schiller Institute presented solutions for Peace Though Development and ending nuclear conflicts with the World Land Bridge- The New Silk Road.[let CHINA lead the way]
 

Or, perhaps the answer to World Peace was creating a New Paradigm?

"The timing could not have been more propitious for the Schiller Institute conference in 2018, just as momentum was building for the consolidation of a New Paradigm, driven by the diplomatic and economic policy direction defined by China’s Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI).[ ...] the new strategic geometry centered on a U.S.-Russia-China alliance, which was emerging in spite of massive resistance from those British and U.S. networks acting to preserve the dangerous old world defined by geopolitics."
.
Nuclear POWER not Nuclear War 

Beam Defense, an alternative.

"
The Iron Beam is intended to work in tandem with Israel's Iron Dome air defense system — also made by Rafael — as “another layer in our air defense strategy and deployment, Operators will be able to choose whether to neutralize threats using traditional kinetic missiles or the Iron Beam's laser."
 
.
Caught one anti-Israel t-shirt....

"What is the basis of moral and social obligation?"
 
Plato's well-known answer rests upon the fundamental responsibility to seek wisdom ....  justice is obtained when knowledge of how to fulfill one's moral and political function in society is put into practice."

 Humanity for Peace Part 1

Our HOSTS
HUMANITY FOR PEACE Mission Statement :
From the La Roche Schiller Institute (@4peacehumanity)

"The danger of nuclear war has escalated to a point that no thoughtful person on the planet can ignore it any longer. ... It is clear that those who provoked the war, and continue to escalate it, do not care about the lives of the people of Ukraine or any other nation on the planet. This is NOT acceptable to those who care about the well-being of ALL humanity — [End Global NATO)


"... show our respect for those who lost their lives in the unnecessary and genocidal nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States ... We remind humanity that nuclear war ... the final and biggest crime against humanity ... must (not) become the dominant voice in the world .... Peace ...  an urgent necessity for humanity’s survival and progress."
.

"The Schiller Institute is a German-based political and economic think tank founded by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, (the widow of American political activist Lyndon LaRouche)... The institute's stated aim is to apply the ideas of the poet and philosopher Friedrich Schiller to what it calls the "contemporary world crisis."

.
Their global positions:
 
In 2015, Zepp-LaRouche  described climate change as a "Satanic swindle". In her opinion, it "supplies the argumentation to establish a global eco-dictatorship whose results, and whose declared intention is to eliminate six billion human beings".
.

In July 2016,
Zepp-LaRouche spoke at the first panel on the Think 20 Summit, which was organised by three Chinese academies and institutes..."

The producer/director of the film, 8:15 Hiroshima, From Father to Daughter” - J.R. Heffelfinger. spoke  ".... giving voice to the voiceless and making the invisible, visible. "

He promoted his film and shared that on Jan 24, 2023 "the Doomsday Clock was moved to 90 seconds before midnight. The closest it's been since its creation in 1947.  And quoted author John Hersey"What has kept the world safe from the bomb since 1945 has not been deterrence, in a sense of fear of specific weapons so much as it's been memory; the memory of what happened at Hiroshima."

 Ending Part 1 so many opinions, statements, goals.

"The LaRouche movement has attracted devoted followers and developed some specific and elaborate policy initiatives, but has also been referred to variously as Marxist, fascist, anti-Semitic, a political cult, a personality cult, and a criminal enterprise.[

The LaRouche movement has often been considered a far-right political movement.[..] The Heritage Foundation called it "one of the strangest political groups in American history", and The Washington Monthly called it a "vast and bizarre vanity press".

The LaRouche movement is seen by some as a fringe political cult.[

Part 2 next:

Will they create that New Paradigm.

Kirk Cameron Brave Story Hour OUTSIDE NYC Main Library

 

March 31, 2023. It was a lovely presentation. Books were read. The children listened and there were even jugglers practicing while the children waited for the story hour to begin.

The Guardians of Divinity were in the crowd, of adults and children, enjoying and supporting this lovely story time

.Shamefully, the liberals in the NY Public Library System were afraid to give equal time to. the Brave Story Time Hour.

 Kirk Cameron Brave Story Hour Outside NYC Main Library

Video of excerpted reading OUTSIDE the Main Library on Fifth Avenue

 
Maybe because the leftards were out celebrating anything anti-Trump, there was no rude opposition to the As You Grow Story Time.

It was small gathering, but very sweet. And from what I saw, the books are really nice, , published by Brave Books.

Shame,Shame on the lefties in the NY Public Library System for censoring the Brave Books Story Hour.

Let The Children IN.
