Well you connected Ukranian riots with South American, the Ukrane conflict is over the split between the pro-Russian faction currently in control and
seeking closer ties to Russia, and those who want the country to be more aligned with EU , NATO and the West. This tension is playing out it Latvia,
and other former Soviet states that can't get as disconnected as Poland is from the re-surging Russian economic "bear-hug" .
What does that have to do with South America, not sure about the others down there but Venezuela it is also an East-West cold war tension as a
socialist government aligned with Cuba and bent or spreading pro-soviet influence. Remember, Chuvez and associates nationalized the oil industry and
expanded health care and services to the poor, and pushed out the wealthy land owners, stealing their land. Of course, those in government become the
new landed lass ans wealthy just as in Cuba non wealthier than the Castro family (if such good Communist why the foreign big bank accounts- should
their money to the poor too?
So looks to me like all still olde Cold War crap still brewing than anything else. There is an economic side to it, but Communism has failed as a
political system everywhere since human nature is not "in tune" with it's central doctrine "to each according to their need, from each according to
their ability". Seems that the "those in need" side of the equation is always much larger than the other side- "those with ability." And Socialism
is just "Totalitarianism light"- give all to government and those in power take what they want first and give out the left overs which never really
elevates the masses much. Where does the average "Joe " do better- North or South Korea? Taiwan or China? In the end those in power always the
biggest share no matter what they claim to be, and the wealth in general grows from entreprenurial individual efforts and less central government
control. Also the most basic of things- the strength of the work ethic, intelligence, heath and honesty of the general population (that is the real
root cause of US decline). As imperfect as the USA and Capitalism are, what is better?
As to riots worldwide, beyond old leftover East-West issues playing out through surrogate states realigning (source of these riots), throw in the
newer Muslim radicals (talk about woman's lib- how about woman's slavery- back to being a possession of the man). And what ever the hell you call
China these days. China: a free-for-all Capitalistic exploitive economy like we had before WWI here with child labor, with no consumer or worker
protections, all embedded in a Totalitarian Oligarchy that claims (falsely I might add) to be Communism? Then there is the toilet of human society-
North Korea, but I think China wants that NK to be their crazy cousin that serves some Chinese purpose (like how to put half your population is slave
labor camps like the Nazi's), guess its China's backup plan in case real power to the people should arise there. Well, maybe we should all just
start over, tha'ts why all the zombie movies to get us prepared for when all theriris to eat is each other.
So world economy meltdown- maybe but the riots are linked to old issues still playing out.
