United States (US) oligarchs, in their efforts to make themselves even richer, unknowingly helped make China into the super power that she is today.
In just 40 years, as the US deindustrialized by relocating manufacturing overseas, China was able to miraculously eradicate poverty while having 4 times the population of the US. Please click on the following link to understand how that was possible: https://youtu.be/5j_370sLsn4
Isn’t it ironic that the nation that the US claims to be autocratic was able to eradicate poverty in just 40 years, while in Puerto Rico, after 124 years of US colonialism, half of the Puerto Ricans there live in poverty? What good is US “democracy” if it can’t outperform China’s so-called “autocracy”? China has a lot more claim to exceptionalism than the US! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
Isn’t it also ironic that over 90% (an “A”) of Chinese approve of their government, while about 40% (an “F”) of US citizens approve of ours? Based on that, who is more democratic?
If the US were truly a democracy, would 99% of her citizens have agreed to move their jobs overseas? If the US were truly a democracy, would the US be the epicenter of the coronavirus with over a million deaths? And, if the US were truly a democracy, would 8 of the 10 richest men in the world be US citizens? https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
If the US walks, talks and looks like a plutocracy, she is a plutocracy!
And only we could change that if we want democracy!
