I really do not get it. Let's destroy the place because we do not like Bush.

Do you think he gives a shit?
Do you think Americans are sitting here going, shit the world hates us....

Personally...I am going to collect cans and bottles to raise money to help the deaf and blind. While I am doing this, I am thinking, couldn't these people do something else with their time?

I assume you're referring to the protests in Argentina?

Almost choked on my coffee this am when I turned over the NY Times to see pics of El Comandante all over it. LOL.

I would assume the protests are anti-Bush - not anti-America.

I already ranted on this in my forum, so you'll find me in agreement.

Interesting. A number have suggested that Bush uses fear to gather support in this country. Same principle seems to apply to many South American leaders (like Chavez).

i don't quite get it either... it even happens here in america when there's big protests... the so called "anarchists."

"yayyy i hate bush! let's destroy our own country because of him because that makes so much sense!"

Yeah, it's always great to turn on the news and see people smashing their neighbors' storefronts in protest against Bush. Just sort of have to wonder what it is exactly they think they're accomplishing...

I actually agree.

However, it's interesting that Bush can't discuss free trade because just about everyone there is so upset about Saddam's loss of power.

I really do not get it. Let's destroy other countries economies through neo-slavery and call it freedom. Let's bomb them since they are not capable of electing their own governments. Let's engineer a coup if people choose socialism over capitalism.

Do you think the peasants of Latin America give a shit what privileged, white rock fans say about their protests on pretentious message boards?

Do you think people in Venezuela and Argentina are sitting there going, "shit some condescending, ignorant rock fan is wrtiting stupid shit about us while we take to the streets?"

Personally...I am going to pray for something other than neoliberal, quasi-imperialist lies.

While I am posting this, I am thinking, couldn't we write something constructinve and meaningful in this forum that doesn't stink of first world privilege or outright racism?

I'd be obliged if you could provide your definition of the phrase 'neo-liberal'. We might have some kind of an interesting starting point for a debate if you could do so.

I think that if my understanding of neo-liberalism is correct, that I probably approve of the concept. In general I approve of freedom of individuals and companies to start businesses and create wealth and employment. I think it's a good thing myself, and remarkably better than the alternatives that socialism offers.

But then I'm probably a white first world privileged racist or something like that.

Anu, it's not that most people on here are racist or against the peasants of Latin America...but I personally have a hard time seeing what smashing your own storefront will do to advance your goals.

And "neoliberalism" is not the only evil or source of oppression.
