    “Countries dominated by imperialism”, ie any country I don’t like. And capitalism is about individual exchange of ideas, services and products, which may include assembly. Chile used to be about assembly, not its about innovation because of the training its workers received as they assembled. What are free trade zones? Why they are zones where products are cheaper so that more of the people can afford them. I know, how dare nations allow their people to have what they want, they need a paternalistic government to tell them what they want, and they darn well better like it. Chuckle… Batay Ouvriye is your typical Orwellian organization, it says a great deal of nothing expecting everyone to be impressed.

    Everyone suffers equally? Not within the ranks of the Politburo, certainly, nor among the commissars, district chiefs, committee members, and others vested with control. They are the ruling class. Suffering is for the masses.

    “Communism” is a philosophical figment of imagination. There has never been a ‘communist’ nation or society – all have been autocracies defined by a ruling elite answerable only to itself.

    Ms. Ouvriye is merely proving the points I raised in the last edition – that she sees the outside world as the primary cause of Haitian suffering; all these ‘imperialists’ and their capitalist running dogs! Snake spirits and cow demons come to suck the blood of the common worker!

    Bah. These indiscretions occur only because the autocratic government of Haiti thrives upon it. It is they who not only allow, but outright encourage such advantages being taken. Classic autocracy. In contrary policy, they might decide to voluntarily shut out the world (North Korea, Burma), but not to benefit their countrymen – only to allow the vested interests of the ruling class to completely control their enclosed economy.

    Regard Brazil, where consumer prices have shot to ridiculous levels, in part due to inflationary pressures but mostly because of “protectionist” tariffs and tax measures that close the local market to outside goods. Close out the outside, and those within may charge whatever they please.

    The Haitian ruling class must be very pleased with Ms. Ourviye and her kind; they shoot at stars, hoping to kill the vampire on their neck.

    Can the bleeding hearts imagine what would happen to Haiti if the rest of the world just ignored them? Nothing in nothing out, no trade no aid nothing. It would not be more than a couple years and it would be a bigger waste land then it presently is. They probably would even get their population under control, of course that would be through starvation. But I forget it is the developed worlds “responsibility” to take care of the idiots of the world.

    A harsh assessment, but the calculus is not necessarily incorrect. The perversity of foreign charity in autocracies is that far from alleviating poverty, it merely allows the leadership to divert government funds from public works to buying off the ruling class, further entrenching the autocrat who created the poverty in the first place.

    Observe: The nation of Dictatoria spends little on public health, causing much suffering. Doctors Without Borders arrives and spends $50 million to treat easily curable illnesses. The government of Dictatoria charges ‘Doctors’ with a $10 million entry fee (tax) and then reduces the budget for health programs by $50 million – mostly through corruption, so the total on the paper budget remains unchanged. The leadership gains $60 million in bribe money to buy off the ruling class while public services remain unchanged.

    The same is true when famed International Tax-Dodger “Bono” exhorts Western governments to release countries like Dictatoria from their debts, ostensibly so they can stop paying interest and start paying out more to public health and education. (All at the expense of Western taxpayers, of which Mr. Bono is not counted; so easy it is to spend the money of others, Da? He is much more ‘Wall Street’ than ‘Woodstock.’)

    Naturally, the instant this debt is forgiven, Dictatoria immediately requests more loans and sales for Mercedes, champagne, and caviar explode. Meanwhile, the poor of Dictatoria continue to eat ‘pancakes’ of clay and vegetable oil and wonder what happened to giant pot of money that was supposed to fall from the sky. (It did fall, just not on them.)

    Which Communist countries are those? Not Russia, not even China which is turning the way Marx predicted once rampant Capitalism is unleashed without restraint. (In any dictatorship the elites always live well.)

    But that is the lure, cheap and not so cheap made by wage slaves. Emphasis on slaves.

    @Olongapojoe

    Even the Plutocrat elites know to fear the masses. Why they are afraid of them rising up. Why do you think so much militarism is in the USA police forces?
