What did United States (US) deindustrialization have to do with democracy? That made US citizens poorer, while oligarchs became richer from using Chinese cheap labor.
So today, 80% of the richest men in the world are US citizens, while 38 million Americans live in poverty. Consequently and understandably, only 40% of US citizens are satisfied with our government!
The People’s Republic of China is today the factory of the world. China has already eradicated poverty at home, despite having 4 times the US’ population. Over 90% of Chinese are satisfied with their government. If democracy means a government of by and for the people, China’s democracy is superior to the US’! https://youtu.be/0sP15eHm-Rg
The US says that she supports Taiwan’s inalienable right to self-determination and independence. Should we believe that?
If that were so, why has the US ignored 42 United Nations resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans? Would the US be as patient as China, if China were training and providing weapons to Puerto Ricans to fight for our independence? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
The US is committing a crime against humanity by refusing to decolonize Puerto Rico. So why hasn’t the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for the arrest of President Biden, as it did for President Putin?
The US and the west are imperialists. Luckily, they are only 10% of the world!
Imperialism is the opposite of democracy.
