With the world sitting precariously upon an abyss of nuclear confrontation, driven by the disintegration of the financial system, we have one last opportunity to return to our senses. This means bringing an awareness of the true nature of the crisis to the forefront of understanding within the general population at large, and policy makers most specifically. This issue of the Canadian Patriot is designed around two segments. The first segment presents the consequence of failing to comprehend the inherently self-destructive nature of closed system thinking which is driving western governments into a suicidal collision course with those nations which are rejecting such thinking.
This means that it is necessary to understand the role of the British Empire in organizing Canada's recent foreign and internal policy measures and striking upon the remedy in each report.
Our review begins with a top down overview by EIR editors Nancy Spannaus and Rachel Douglas on the war buildup underway in Russia and the USA which define the context of the many detonators spread all over the world which could bring about global confrontation and chaos. The following three reports feature Canada's largely misunderstood role as an instrument in the British Empire's global arsenal which is now being used actively to conduct dirty economic warfare as well as promote actual warfare against those nations such as Russia and China ( among others) which are now boldly resisting the imperial demands for world government and depopulation.
The second half of the Patriot is defined by a focus upon the principle of creative reason as it manifests itself in mankind's ever changing relationship to nature, and how the realization of this fact must forever throw off the shackles of "closed system thinking". The re-defined role of human economic planning must be based on this creative principle and measured according to the standard elaborated by Lyndon LaRouche since the 1960s known as "increasing energy flux density". This transition is made with the report entitled "Mackinder's Geopolitics vs LaRouche's Landbridge".
We then proceed to an investigation of the incompatibility of the principle of the general welfare and environmentalism which then introduces the article "Is Quebec Committing Scientific Suicide?" This report by CRC member Pascal Chevrier elaborates upon Quebec's foolish decision to shut down its remaining nuclear reactor Gentilly-2. Juxtaposed with this is a case study of China's frontier program to develop advanced fourth generation Thorium reactors by 2020 written by Karel Vereycken director of France's Nouvelle Solidarite newspaper. To this is added a report on Russian and Argentinian collaboration for large scale development of energy resources, science and infrastructure.
