Stating the Cubans have democratic elections is like saying the US would be democratic if the only choice was voting for various Republicans vetted by the the head of the Republican Party.

@Dominique_71 I agree with most of the initial post from you but regarding capitalism i would like to say this: Capitalism is beyond left or right it does only care for money. People are just factors involved in producing it. Not sure if you have read the history of dehomag. That story says that a corporation can profit from war. Dehomag was working for all sides. Germany, USA not sure about Russia probably it did not went so far. After the war they have collected all the the know how gathered in any country they worked for.

Yes, I know that history. The first corporations to make money with wars are the banks. Historically, the first customers of the banks was the weapon manufacturers and their buyers, mainly the kings. Under many centuries, no one could win a war in Europe without to have the bank of Vatican on its side. Today, the militaro-industriel complex is using more than 50% of the natural resources of the earth, what is most insane with this is than no one single politician want to stop this. The Delphi Initiative - Speech by Peter Koenig

50% of the natural resources of the Earth, eh? That wouldn't be a tiny little exaggeration or generalization? :lol:

And please respond in 100 words or less.

It is in the video at 2 min 30 sec, something like that. The truth is that, if peace will reign today on earth, countries like the US, France or Russia will be in bankruptcy the exact same day.

I think what you mean is 50% of natural resource consumption, not what sounded like 50% of the Earth's natural resources (which would be an absurd claim).

Look at the video:
At 3:20, Peter Koenig say "we are exploiting mother Earth at the rate of 4.5 times its natural resources. Compare it with Afrika which is about 0.6%. And much of those natural resources that we exploit ... goes in the military industry, in the war machine. Over the past 20 years, much more than half of the extracted mineral resources went to the military-industrial complex. We don't know that because the media don't tell us. Another chock is that close to 50% of the US GDP depends on wars, conflicts and related weapons sales to other countries, so if tomorrow, peace would happen, the US economy would collapse."

It is not about left or right in the U.S. when cultural habits are strongly oriented toward shit-hole countries in Washington DC. Trevor Noah shows it to you with his great stand up skills

Not far in Virgini a district Court feels responsible for an australien guy, who lived in Europe at the time. They
indict Julian Assange with a law from WW1 - none of the paragraphs describing illegal action in Europe.

If only Assange could clear his name in a case of a sex incident in Sweden, he could stay there just to wait for a newly created Nobel Information Fighters price - above Virginia indictment justifies.

Yeah, that's not what you said.

Assange is a Sleep Fucker. Besides, now that he destroyed Hillary Clinton, the smegmacrats don't like him anymore.
