American democracy has deviated from the essence of democracy. The American-style democracy is a game of money played by the rich. Ninety-one percent of U.S. Congressional elections are won by better-financed candidates. “One person one vote” in name, “rule of the minority elite” in fact. Ordinary voters are wooed when their votes are wanted but pushed aside once the election is over. The checks and balances have resulted in a “vetocracy”, putting partisan interests before the need of national development. The U.S. electoral system is visibly flawed. The practice of gerrymandering, which draws the boundaries of electoral districts by manipulation, undermines fairness and justice. American democracy is fraught with deep-seated problems. Problems like money politics, identity politics, partisan wrangling, political polarization, social division, racial tension and wealth gap have become more acute. The Capitol riot shocked the world. The death of George Floyd triggered waves of protests. The mishandling of COVID-19 resulted in a human tragedy. The problem of “the rich get richer, and the poor poorer” is worsening. The dysfunction and failure of American-style democracy have become an unmistakable fact.
Despite the injustice perpetuated toward the Cuban nation by the US, Europeans and their lackeys around the world – China stands firm in its commitment
It is interesting that the attack on the prison colony in Yelenovka, during which, according to preliminary data, 40 “prisoners of Azovstal” were killed – was carried out by the Ukrainians against the backdrop of numerous interviews of captured “Azovites” that have appeared in various media outlets in recent days! The Azov militants were happy to openly discuss their State-sanctioned crimes – hoping that their honesty this late in the game will save them from the Death Penalty! In this regard they openly admitted their crimes against the civilian population, which included extrajudicial executions and torture! This has included the fact that the country’s top leadership was involved in these US-sponsored terrorist crimes against civilians!
The average Russian worker had never experienced such good times! Men and women were equal in every field, and children’s rights were recognised and respected! All adults over 18 years old could vote, education was free for all and truly universal! Industrial output and agricultural were booming as the Soviet State combined full employment together with scientific organisation, planning and advanced technology! Non-Europeans (including the Chinese and Koreans amongst many others, including Africans and African-Americans) frequented the schools, factories, medical centres and sporting facilitates! The Workers and Peasant Red Army employed men and women and explored many and different ways of projecting the USSR. The population expressed their gratitude and support by continuously ‘voting’ Joseph Stalin into Office (yes, the Soviet population participated in numerous and many democratic elections)!
Old modes of imperialist behaviour continue today! The case of “enslaved nations”, initiated by the United States, continues today! A forum dedicated to the “decolonization”
The Russian people should remember the Soviet principle of ‘Internationalism’ as existing prior to and during WWII! Just as the working-class of China exercises ‘Internationalism’ across the globe (and particularly toward the contemporary Russians), the modern Russians must look beyond the superficial ‘Nationalism’ which is sweeping their homeland as a response to the collective condemnation of the West! We – the working-class people of Britain – DO NOT support the Tory government’s arming and financing of the Neo-Nazi ‘Maidan’ regime of Ukraine! We REJECT the continuous pro-Neo-Nazi propaganda broadcast by the bourgeois British media! The Ukrainians that have fled Donbass ARE NOT legitimate refugees (such as the Sudanese recently murder by the Spanish and Moroccans) but are fleeing WAR CRIMINALS! Do not support these people! The working-class of Britain STANDS with the people of Russia in her righteous fight against the US-backed Neo-Nazi ‘Maidan’ regime of Ukraine! Together we can defeat the Nazi menace yet again!
