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.
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 might 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 neighbourhoods are growing up all over China; entire cities are being built, with enormous parks and public exercise grounds, with childcare centres and all the 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 centres, connected to the rest of the other urban areas by super modern cable cars.
Cuba, despite its extremely low (National)income (if measured in dollar terms) joined the exclusive group of countries with a ‘very high development index’ as calculated by UNDP. That group also consists of other Latin American countries with socialist-leaning governments – Chile and Argentina.
Many things that would be unimaginable just a decade or two ago, are now considered normal. The Chilean President, Michelle Bachelet, has been elected for the second time. During the Western-backed Pinochet’s dictatorship, she was held as a prisoner and brutally tortured. Her father, a military man loyal to Allende was murdered….
Her country with only 18 million inhabitants is an intellectual powerhouse, as are Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. Chile is not purely ‘socialist’, but it is implementing sweeping socialist reforms. Now it is so rich that tens of thousands of jobless Europeans are seeking work in its cities and countryside.
In Brazil, a lady, a former guerrilla leader, is lifting tens of millions out of poverty…
In South Africa, formerly hopeless slums are now full of life and hope…the African continent is rising.
Eritrea, Iran and North Korea are standing defiantly against Western embargoes and intimidation…
…and Russia, the mighty Russia that was once on its knees, during that monstrous government of the pro-Western puppet Boris Yeltsin, is now back in the saddle, standing on the side of many progressive nations all over the world. It has forgiven a tremendous multi-billion dollar debt to Cuba, it is forging powerful alliances with Venezuela, Brazil and other left wing nations, and above all, it is finally creating a grand alliance with China.
The world has never been so close to a real breakthrough – to true freedom.
