Capitalism is the worst!

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


United States (US) President Ronald Reagan narrated in 1962 a propaganda documentary entitled The Truth about Communism. Please click on this link to watch it:

Reagan, in the 1980’s, led the US into neoliberalism that has resulted in chaos for the majority of US citizens. An example of that is the fact that today 38 million Americans live in poverty, while 9 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens.

Israel and the US, two so-called “champions of democracy”, are today committing genocide against the indigenous people of Palestine in their own homeland. How is that demonstratively different from what Reagan depicted in his documentary?

The truth of the matter is that the US wants to rule the world, and not spread democracy. If the US were interested in spreading democracy, it would be happy with the People’s Republic of China that wants win-win economic relationship among nations.   

China, a nation that the US says is a dictatorship, has already eradicated her poverty since 2020, despite having 4 times the US’ population. While only 33% of US citizens today are satisfied with our government, 90% of Chinese are satisfied with theirs!

The US, in addition to the war that it is currently fighting against the Russian Federation in Ukraine, plans to also go to war against China. The US will use, as its pretext, that it supports Taiwan’s inalienable right to self-determination and independence. That obviously is hypocritical, since the US has consistently refused to comply with 42 United Nations’ resolution precisely demanding that it immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.  

Will the International Court of Justice find Israel and the US guilty of crimes against humanity? Will those found guilty be executed like in the Nuremberg Trials against the Nazi?  Or, will there be a double standard used by virtue of US’ exceptionalism?

US’ exceptionalism is in itself anti-democratic!

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.
