The problem with capitalism is that capital is more important than people
Click on the above link to read why.
The article never mentioned the real issues involved in the Puerto Rico crises. It is not just about paying a debt. If you think it is, you are missing practically the entire picture!
The article never mentioned, in a clear and direct manner, that Puerto Rico is a colony of the United States (US) government. It never mentioned that the US government is committing a crime maintaining her as its colony for 117 years. It never mentioned that the United Nations (UN) has petitioned the US government through 34 resolutions to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico, and just like this article ignored reality, it has ignored these resolutions.
The title of this article is, “What the United States Owes Puerto Rico.” Well, let’s see.
The US government invaded Puerto Rico expressly to make her its colony. It has exploited her for 117 years. Specifically, for every dollar the US government invests in Puerto Rico, it gets back 14. The conditions of Puerto Rico are the direct result of the US government’s unilateral policy. Thus, it is the fault of the United States government for what is happening to Puerto Rico today.
The solution is not what this article called for. Actually, it is a simple one for those who believe that people are more important than capital. But, of course, what do you expect from THE WALL STREET JOURNAL?
This article said that it would be unjust and unacceptable for the US government to allow Puerto Rico to fall prey to the claws of vultures. Puerto Rico’s biggest vulture today is the US government. What makes this author believe that the US government cares about that!
The solution, of course, lies in international law. It says that all nations have a right to self-determination and independence. The solution is for the US government to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico. To do otherwise is irrefutable proof that the US government is violating Puerto Ricans' human rights. This article never mentioned that either!
Join us in 3 protests a year to insist that the US government comply with the 34 UN resolutions asking it to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico. We must, because those who violates human rights by maintaining Puerto Ricans under colonial rule don’t believe in JUSTICE FOR ALL!
