If You Want to Stop the Genocide, Build a New International Security and Development Architecture

The following is the Schiller Institute’s invitation for the Dec. 9-10 conference on the New International Security and Development Architecture, sponsored by the “Central American Critical Thought” organization. 

`Central American Critical Thought’ Announces an International Conference: 

“A New International Security and Development Architecture”

Do you believe that Man is fundamentally good and capable of infinitely perfecting the creativity of his mind and the beauty of his soul? Would you agree that all evil is the result of a lack of development, and therefore can be overcome?

If you don’t share that philosophical outlook, then you probably don’t have a clue as to why humanity seems to be stuck in a perennial cycle of wars and economic devastation, nor a reasonable hope for how the crisis can be solved.

The terrible war in Ukraine; the carnage and increasingly evident ethnic cleansing and dehumanization underway in Palestine; the physical economic devastation being produced by deadly sanctions and subservience to a $2 quadrillion speculative financial bubble – these are all markers of the death rattle of the entire neo-liberal system engulfing the nations of the so-called West.

Ending the wars and fostering sovereign economic development of all nations is going to require an entirely new international security and development architecture. The nature of that new architecture, the principles on which it should be built, will be the central topic of deliberation at the upcoming Dec. 9 -10 conference organized by the Central American and Caribbean Critical Thought organization. Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche, who will deliver the keynote address at the conference, in Nov. 2022 published a discussion document on precisely that issue, titled “Ten Principles of an International Security and Development Architecture.” Since then, she has stressed that “these ideas are meant to be food for thought and a dialogue among all people concerned to find a basis for a world order guaranteeing the durable existence of the human species.”

The invitation issued by the conference organizers reads as follows:
