    And ignorance is that which keeps the American people in bondage.

    The U.S. government's own historical record, as revealed through declassification of relevant documentation over the years, justifies the Latin American dictators and my assertions.

    The only thing that justifies yours is the blinders imposed by a lifetime indoctrination of American idealism.

    Immediately following the Bolshevik revolution the Bolsheviks negotiated a treaty to exit WWI. They were immediately invaded by the West. You tell me which is the virus.

    The Russians had every right, based solely on American ideals, to organize their society however they saw fit.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^The view through pink-tinted glasses^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Reality:

    The elections to the Russian Constituent Assembly took place in November 1917. The Bolsheviks gained 24% of the vote. When it became clear that the Bolsheviks had little support outside of the industrialized areas of Saint Petersburg and Moscow, they simply barred non-Bolsheviks from membership in the soviets. (Wikipedia)

    Like the Nazis later did in Germany, the minority Bolsheviks seized control of the Russian government through violence and intimidation and went on to establish a reign of terror over the Russian people.

    So America screwed up Venezuela? Or all those African countries with their people eating dirt cakes? Or all those f*d up Muslim countries stuck in the 1400s because of their f*d up religion/government?
    No sir, incorrectamundo.

    In a word "culture".

    Multiculturalist have foisted one of the most destructive ideas upon the western world, namely that no culture is better than any other. Only profoundly stupid people should believe this, yet the notion has taken such root in the left that such silly relativism defines it.

    The shitholes of the world are shitholes because of their cultural values. They cling to centuries old social mores instead of modernizing. They rely on rigid gender roles instead of valuing women. They are superstitious instead of scientific. They ask few questions and too readily accept answers. They do not innovate, they do not value education and they blame others for their own failures.

    Not all cultures are the same. Some embrace values that lead to success while others do not.

    The power struggle that took place in 1917 over the constituent assembly had no relevance to the Western intervention in 1918 and wasn't even used as a pretext for the intervention.

    The point is that the Russians had every right to determine their own path. The West challenged that right and was shown to be the virus that necessitated the newly developing society to build the anti virus to defend against the constant attacks. The Cuban missile crisis is another good example of this relationship.

    Our resources are not limitless as the Left would have us believe. Sure let them all in, there's plenty of tax money to take care of all of them, right?

    No facts, no logic, just conclusionary statements.
