The United States (US), the so-called champion of democracy and human rights, has had a capitalist neoliberal economic system for the past 40 years.
99% of US citizens, however, have been battered by it. The evidence by Oxfam confirms categorically that the US government, among other so-called democracies, are governments of, by and for the 1% of their citizens.

The richest people have increase their wealth by two thirds of all of the new wealth between 2020 and 2021. That 42 trillion dollars is twice as much, as what the 99% of the people of the world earn!
World poverty has not been eradicated, because the so-called “democracies” have been designed to perpetuate poverty. Oxfam’s conclusion is that, “The very existence of booming and record profits while most people face austerity, rising poverty, and a cost of living crisis, is evidence of an economic system that fails to deliver for humanity.”
The oligarchs are not your friends.
People must organize to fight the oligarchs!
