United States (US) citizens say that democracy is important, but, less than half feel that their government represents them, even though they have multiple political parties to choose from. What could be more revealing about that, than the fact that 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens, while the US is the epicenter of the coronavirus with over a million deaths?
People’s Republic of China citizens also say that democracy is important, however, they are 95% satisfied with their government, although they don’t have any other political party to choose from. Click on the following link to understand why: https://youtu.be/TiJ2-Uw_0tA
Here is an excellent example of the difference between both democracies.
The US militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her a colony in 1898. The US government (USG) has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity. Moreover, the USG has ignored 41 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
Thus, the USG hypocritically denounces Russia for militarily invading the sovereign nation of Ukraine. Similarly, the USG hypocritically alleges that China is violating international law by committing genocide in Xinjiang. However, there is no doubt that the USG has been committing a crime against humanity in Puerto Rico for the past 124 years!
The US Empire feels threatened by China. The world has declared the US the biggest threat to peace. The world wants a democracy that benefits all people. Thank God that the party is over for the 1% of China’s citizens. People around the world hope that the party could spread to the rest of us! https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
Isn’t that what democracy is supposed to do?
