US democracy camouflages plutocracy

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


United States (US) plutocracy is glaringly manifested in the economic sanctions against Russia. They are hurting the 99% of her citizens, while making the 1% richer. Click on the following link to get China’s perspective on this:

If the US were a democracy, why has she maintained Puerto Rico as her colony for the past 124 years? She has, because that represents a lot of money for US capitalists.

That means, however, that the US government (USG) has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity. Moreover, the USG has ignored 41 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.

China is correct about the world being aware of Washington’s deceptions. How else could the US be the epicenter of the coronavirus with over a million deaths, while 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens? And, how else the world could consider the USG as the biggest threat to peace? 

Actions speak louder that world.

A criticism from within.

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.
