(I’m not going to pretend to be any type of expert on Western-Latin American relations. I’m just hoping this info-graphic is a good summary-representation of US intervention in Latin America and that it provides a good general overview of events. Latin America is an EXTREMELY heavy topic but also a very suppressed one in general Western media. Thus, if anyone with more background on the area has any commentary, please feel free to leave a reply below.)
I’m seriously so sick and tired of politicians solely using job creation as their platform.
Just provide the basic universal income or the basics of life already. They are using every single excuse in the book to keep people under the hand of employers and corporations. They don’t want to say anything that will hurt their standing with the business elite.
They want to pretend they care about the public by saying “we will help get you employed,” rather than just providing the basic necessities of life which are long overdue.
It’s ‘the people’ that are supposed to command the country and demand what they want. The refusal to allow for basic income results from elites of different sectors boycotting the will of the public and pretending that they need to be a filter to stop the public from hurting themselves. They clearly do not care about the public so what do they care if the public hurts themselves or not?
When people start becoming disillusioned by the current state of democracy, the solution would be to shift towards greater direct democracy and greater regional control, in my opinion.
(And the fact the liberal media always wants to make totalitarianism seem like the only alternative to our current situation shows how much the people behind the scenes truly care about genuine democracy, in my opinion.)
