The war in Ukraine has accelerated the collapse of the pillars supporting neoliberalism. The pillars are:
- Cheap Russian energy
- Cheap consumer goods from Asia
- Large debts in the west, and
- Low interest rates

After the collapse of the United Socialist Soviet Republic, the United States (US) and her allies (west) felt that they could now ignore the 99% of their people without the risk of a revolution. That was the birth of neoliberalism.
The west, against international law, sanctions today about 40% of the world’s population, with the excuse that they are not supposedly “democracies”. Yet, the US, right now, is stealing Syria’s energy. That’s the US’ definition of democracy!
And that is why the US has earned the reputation of being the biggest threat to peace, with her 800 military bases around the world!
The fact that the rich get richer, while the poor get poorer means that capitalism promotes a class war. The fact that the working class need unions to protect them means that capitalism promotes a class war. The fact that unions are not needed in a socialist economy, means that socialism works for the 100% of its people.
The oligarchs refuse to give up their anti-democratic capitalism. The people must decide whether they will fight the oligarchs to install a real democracy!
Neoliberalism enslaves the 99%
Wake up and emancipate yourself!
