Only US nationalism is good

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


Why does the United States (US) consider the People’s Republic of China as its biggest threat? What is the US’ problem with China’s win – win philosophy in her international relationships? 

If the US were a real democracy, it would not have any problem with China. However, being a plutocracy, China does pose a huge threat to the US in making itself “great again”.

The best way for a nation to become a threat to the US is by advocating for her nationalism. That nation would intend to govern for her own citizens. That means that the US will not be able to exploit that nation for its own interest. Therefore, the US suddenly determines that that nation is governed by a dictator, and, for the alleged sake of “democracy” the dictator must be removed!

If the US had intentions of complying with international law, it would not spend more than the next 10 nations combined on its military. Moreover, the US would not need 800 military bases all around the world. The US does, because it intends to never comply with international law, if it goes against its interest.

That is why the US is fighting today 2 proxy wars in Ukraine and Gaza. That is also why the US is planning today a direct war with China, with the pretext that Taiwan has a right to her independence. If the US really believed that, why has it consistently refused to comply with 42 United Nations’ resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans?

The US, far from being a democracy, is a plutocracy for only 10% of its citizens. That is why 9 of the 10 richest men in the world today are US citizens, while 38 million Americans live in poverty.

China, on the other hand, has already eradicated her poverty since 2020, despite having 4 times the US’ population. And speaking of democracy, 90% of Chinese are satisfied with their government, while only 33% of Americans are satisfied with ours!

The US has never been great for the 90% of its citizens.

Make the US a real democracy.

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.
