Capitalism destroys democracies

By José M. López Sierra


The United States (US) would never have used capitalism as its economic model, if it were truly the champion of democracy. Capitalism is designed to create uneven development, and that only favors oligarchs. Please click on this link for more:

The evidence shows that People’s Republic of China is more democratic than the US. China has already eradicated her poverty, while the US has 38 million Americans living in poverty today. It is important to mention that China has 4 times the US’ population. How was China able to accomplish that?

China government does not allow its oligarchs to do whatever they want. That is why 90% of Chinese are satisfied with their government, despite the US accusing China of being a dictatorship. Conversely, the US allows its oligarchs to do whatever they want. That is also why only 33% of Americans are satisfied with our government.

These oligarchs don’t care what happens to the 99% of US citizens. The US is more interested in trying to force China to give US oligarchs a, so-called, “level playing field”. What that means is for China to allow US oligarchs to do whatever they want in China like in the US. China, of course, refuses to yield her sovereignty to US oligarchs.

War is a racket in the US. That is what US Major General Smedley Butler in his book, and US President Eisenhower in his farewell address told us. The US is fighting the wars in Ukraine and Gaza to make its oligarchs even richer. Today, 9 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens.

Despite US university students all over the nation protesting and getting arrested to stop the artificial colonial settler state of Israel’s genocide against the indigenous people of Palestine, the US government is determined to violate the Genocide Convention. The US recently threatened the International Criminal Court with sanction and a military invasion, if it dares to issue arrest warrants for Netanyahu and other top Israeli officials.

The US will do everything in its power to keep economic development uneven. Therefore, it is up to the 99% of us to stop this US out of control capitalistic train, before it kills us all!

Capitalism can destroy humanity too!

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
