No, even if we believe we are.
Capitalism isn’t designed for democracy. Capitalism is designed for plutocracy, and that is exactly what we have in the United States (US). Click on the following link for more: https://youtu.be/4xqouhMCJBI
Puerto Ricans aren’t free either. The US government (USG) militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony in 1898.
The USG is violating the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism, by refusing to decolonize Puerto Rico. Colonialism is a crime against humanity!
The USG is knowingly committing a crime against humanity, since it has ignored, thus far, 40 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
Capitalism is slavery. That is why it is eagerly supported by the 1% of US citizens.
We will need to engage in permanent resistance to make the USG work for the excluded 99% of us. https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
Capitalism is the opposite of freedom.
