China defeats US’ neoliberalism

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The United States (US) claims that it wants a level playing field for its corporations in the People’s Republic of China. The fact of the matter, however, is that China has beaten the US in its own capitalistic game. The US, on the contrary, wants an uneven playing field against China.

The US is furious about China’s Seagull electric vehicle, which is her version of the idea behind Germany’s Volkswagen. But the so-called “western democracies” are not interested in permitting their citizens to buy the best car at the best price. Does that means that the West has suddenly abandoned capitalism?

While the US, governed exclusively for its oligarchs, maintains, still today, 38 million of its citizens living in poverty, China has eliminated her poverty, despite having 4 times the US’ population. China has been successful in preventing her oligarchs from hijacking the government, by installing a government that safeguards the people’s interest. That has been the opposite of what the US has accomplished. And, that is why 9 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens.

The US’ talk about having a so-called “level playing field” is for China to allow US companies to do whatever they want in China. Because China refuses to do so, the US calls China a dictatorship. 90% of Chinese, however, are satisfied with their government, while only 33% of Americans are satisfied with ours. How could, then, the US claim to be the “champion of democracy”?

Moreover, how could the US be a democracy, when it has consistently refused to comply with 42 United Nations’ resolutions demanding that it immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans?

The US says that Chinese vehicles, Huawei phones, and the so-called “Chinese spy balloon are collecting data on US citizens, and therefore are a threat to US national security. This, of course, is a cheap excuse for China beating the US in its own neoliberalism.   

The US’ only real claim is being the champion of imperialism.

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.
