"It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable,
and to propagandize and teach the American people to hate, so we will
let the Establishment spend any amount of money on arms."
- John Stockwell, former CIA official and author.
Ernesto Che Guevara represents to me the struggle for justice, social equality, participatory democracy in which the producers are the owners and major decision-makers, once the capitalist economy based on greedy profit for the few is abolished.
Western democracy claims to be the best system in the world because it promotes a multi-political party system with regular elections in which all citizens (except prisoners and ex-prisoners) are officially allowed to vote. This system of "democracy" actually is the dictatorship of elites, the capitalist class and its allies.
"I have been to the darkest corners of government,
and what they
fear is light." (Snowden as quoted in "No Place to Hide – Edward Snowden, the NSA and the Surveillance State" by Glenn Greenwald.
Herein can you see many articles about the elite system of democracy and how it needs control over us all and wars to expand. You can also see several of my books in the theme section. In addition, there are many articles about Cuba's revolution and where it stands today. Venezuela, Bolivia, Denmark, the wars against the Middle East and other countries are included.
There are revealing and sad articles concerning the genocide of Tamils by Sri Lanka's Sinhalese governments aided by the Western colonialists-imperialists as well as by competitors in China, Russia, Iran and even Cuba and ALBA.
HERE for an analysis
of the US-NATO permanent war age written December 23, 2012. Compare
with what is happening today under the extension of Bush's regime. Excerpt:
"The rulers’ definition of terror is so broad that it fits most anything or anyone, except the ruling class’ governments and their military officials."
HERE for "Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka" and "Sounds of Venezuela" November 2011 book launching in Chennai, India. Excerpt:
"We have wandered over the deserts and the seas. We have been hungry and thirsty. We have been murdered and tortured. We are of the working class, of the castes; we are many races and nationalities. We share a common vision: freedom and equality; bread and water on the table; a shelter over our heads. We must fight together to live in peace and harmony."
HERE for a good read
about Cuba: investigating property and human rights. Excerpt:
Clad in cycling shorts and rubber-cleat shoes, Rolando hefted his racing bicycle over his shoulder and climbed the stairs to the Popular Power Havana Municipal Government building. He swung open the glass front door and, without glancing about, strode straight toward a staircase. Clerks looked up surprised but no one interfered with this odd spectacle.
I followed up the stairs with my bicycle upon my shoulder and we walked into an office.
HERE is my analysis
of the year 2011 and what awaits us. Excerpt:
Internationalism is an endless struggle, an endless challenge. It does not end even when one or more of our political parties take over the governing reigns. We activists must always keep our wary eyes pinned on the leaders, regardless of their names, just as our clear eyes cast light upon humanity’s future.
