Stock market is undemocratic

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The stock market is a playground for the rich. The top 10% of people own stocks. Therefore, for most people, the stock market is irrelevant. The rules governing it favor the rich. Click on the following link for more:

This set-up has allowed 8 of the 10 richest men in the world to be United States (US) citizens, while, at the same time, the US is the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic. Does that sound like the US is the beacon of democracy?

With all of the problems in the US, the US is sending a lot of money to Ukraine. Shouldn’t we be spending that money at home? Well yes, in a real democracy.

Capitalists and their US Military Industrial Complex stand to make huge profits in that war. Moreover, the US government (USG) is planning yet another war with China over Taiwan, as the USG pretends that her independence is important.

Do you know that the US has had Puerto Rico as her colony for the past 124 years in violation of the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity? The US has also ignored 40 UN resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.

The US has never been democratic.

Make America shameless!

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.
