Since I started graduate school, I have been fazing in and out of my socialism and Communism class. Well really I should probably mention that there are a couple of brownnosers in the class and being that half of the time I wanted to wring Marx and Engel's necks...it did not help with my situation. But then I began thinking on the consequences of Capitalism....
Since Capitalism is the father American Economy, I wondered how this could be the reason for third world socialism.
SO what do you know, I am doing a research paper on that. THIRD WORLD SOCIALISM...okay someone shoot me now....before I turn into a socialist myself. haha SYKE! not gonna happen.
Okay so we know that most of the third world is poor and well they have no choice but socialism. Not that capitalism is doing any good in the US now, especially with the present economy.
Fidel Castro, in all his magnimonity was the one quoted saying, " They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?" And he is right, Capitalism seems to have failed everyone else but Americans. ( I could go into theories of why this is the case...but lets not do that now)
Socialism has failed too...it has caused as much as capitalism has..."wars and competition" However, in the developing nations, it is easier to be a socialist than a capitalist. Not to mention to an extent, capitalism and Capitalists have driven it to be so.
For example, Somalia. if you don't know the awful situation there, well go and do some research.
Somalia is one of those nations that was able to kick the US out of the country after trying to
"save" it. It is one of those international humiliations that Clinton will never live down. it is also has become a very very dangerous area for the US. Not to mention harboring those pirates we keep hearing of. To be honest, I admire these young somalians. They are stupid for sure, but they figured, they had to take the chance that no well meaning, well reasoned person would ever take- attacking an american vessel.
History has rendered that the US-Somali relations will always be rocky. The US butts in wanting to put in some kind of Capitalist economy, and that fails. then off course now they are threatening to stop food from flowing into a country whose people have no government nor food. These people are dying, and all US can think of is...well, they kinda deserve it.
In some ways, the US is no better than those terrorists really. I know that is a radical thought. LEt me explain this..
Terrorism by defination is...
|1.||the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.|
|2.||the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.|
|3.||a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.|
