El capitalismo contra la democracia en Europa y América Latina



Es de hecho Max Weber, el conocido sociólogo burgués. Aunque jamás desarrolló tal idea, está sugiriendo que hay una contradicción intrínseca entre el capitalismo y la democracia.

La historia del siglo xx parece confirmar esa opinión: muy a menudo, cuando el poder de las clases dominantes se veía amenazado por el pueblo, la democracia era puesta a un lado como un lujo que no podía permitirse y reemplazada por el fascismo —Europa en las décadas de 1920-30— o las dictaduras militares en Latinoamérica en las décadas de 1960-70.

Afortunadamente, éste no es el caso de Europa y Latinoamérica en la actualidad; sin embargo, hemos experimentado, en particular durante las últimas décadas con el triunfo del neoliberalismo,una democracia de baja intensidad, una democracia sin contenido social que se ha convertido en recipiente vacío. Cierto, aún tenemos elecciones, pero parecería que hay un solo partido, el Partido del Mercado Unido, con dos variantes que tienen sólo diferencias limitadas: la versión neoliberal de la derecha y la versión socioliberal de centro-izquierda.

    The portugee economy is in the toilet, and droves of it's citizens are fleeing to neighboring Spain to work just to put food on the table! Those who don't go to Spain are swimming, or jumping on bannana boats to go to Angola or Mozambique just to sell their body for cod to feed their families. The slightly better off portugee are flying to Brasil to live in a favela that is much better than the poor, decrepid conditions they live in now; at least here they can eat.

    The portugee are an ignorant bunch stuck in a mental time-warp that only focus on a national soccer team that has never won a single Euro or World Cup and "how" good things were in the distant past rather than focusing on their now deteriorated, non-existant economy, and how bad things really are today.

    This is "why" they can't seem to see the log stuck in their eyes but see the splinters in everybody elses eyes. I do find it ironic that they are racist toward Spain, Angola, Mozambique and Brazil only to later go look for a better life in these countries!!
