The Paradigm Shift – Then and Now

During the week following the shock of the brutal assassination of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963 most of the world’s population and leaders recognized the profound loss of a great world leader. Most did not know the British empire’s role in such assassinations, or how such events would lead to a paradigm shift away from the pro-development, science driven commitment to growth and progress of the JFK administration, to the dominance of the rock-drug-sex counterculture which opposed the “American System of Economics.

The Schiller Institute organized a series of events, including the 2012 New Paradigm Conference and the 2013 “Remembrance of JFK” concert, which have helped shape what we call the BRICS dynamic today. See these events below, and work with us now to shape the history of the coming decades for development:
