The United Nations (UN) was created after World War II to protect the human rights of people all over the world. Despite the UN’s 75 year history, and boasting of having decolonized all but 17 colonies, in reality, colonialism has never stopped since Christopher Columbus stepped into the New World.
The United States (US) has been practicing colonialism even before she became a nation. She is the biggest violator of human rights in the world! Aside from the irony of the UN being located in the US, the US government (USG) always says that it is protecting human rights as a pretext to invade and rob a nation of her resources.

Ramón Grosfoguel said that imperialism is a mafia mentality. He explained why Saddam Hussein’s trial was behind closed doors, and why the USG killed 2 of his lawyers. Under international law, Rumsfeld should have also been tried for crimes against humanity for having provided Saddam the weapons of mass destruction.
No wonder the USG has ignored 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
We need to decolonize our minds to be able to see the creative ways that the USG continues to colonize the world. The USG becomes even more dangerous, as its imperial power declines. It does, because it prefers to destroy a country, when it cannot control her.
All people of good will have an obligation to join together to protect human rights, because those who refuse to eradicate colonialism, don’t want LIBERTY AND JUSTICE for us. https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
Colonialism is too profitable for 0.1% of the people to give up!
