Do Western Leftists Hate Socialist Countries?

Do Western Leftists Hate Socialist Countries?

by ANDRE VLTCHEK


The multitudes in Europe and North America did not really pay attention, did not notice, but in so many parts of the world, the Left was elected or it fought and won revolutions that propelled it to power. This is a totally different world than it was some twenty years ago; we are living in increasingly optimistic times, full of wonderful alternatives.

For the first time in centuries it seems possible to dream about a world that will not be defined by Western imperialism and colonialism!

In so many places, people are once again in charge of their countries, standing tall, building their cities and villages, erecting towers and bridges, putting to work mighty turbines, giving light to the poor, healing the sick and educating those who were kept in darkness, for decades and centuries, as a result of Western colonialism and savage capitalism.

Entire modern and ecological neighborhoods are growing up all over China; entire cities are being built, with enormous parks and public exercise grounds, with childcare centers and all the modern sanitation facilities, as well as wide sidewalks and incredibly cheap and super modern public transportation.

In Latin America, former slums are being converted into cultural centers, connected to the rest of the other urban areas by super modern cable cars.

1. This westerner does not hate

Socialist countries.

The U.S. could use a heavy dose of Socialism in my humble opinion.

Capitalism has been no friend to the lower classes.

Capitalism has decimated the middle class.

Capitalism has led to empire building.

Capitalism has led to corruption and greed being the norm not the exception.

Viva Socialism

Viva South America

Viva to President Evo Morales

Viva to the late great Hugo Chavez

Viva to President Maduro

Viva to President Jose Mujica
