Mr. Vargas Llosa & Co fight not but against Freedom and Democracy
A reply to: "Latin Americas ProCapitalist Elite Hold AntiChavez Conference in Venezuela, May 29th 2009, by James Suggett – Venezuelanalysis.com"
It is amazing how deep some intellectuals (in this case Mr. Vargas Llosa & Co) can fall when they become prostitutes of capitalism and hired guns of imperialism. Mr. Vargas Llosa asserts that private property is a human right. There is another and a very convincing view of private property, most lucidly formulated by P.-J. Proudhon: "Property is theft". Certainly, Mr. Vargas Llosa might argue that Mr. Proudhon was an anarchist and therefore his opinion is not valid. Therefore I would quote the most sacred document of Mr. Vargas Llosa's masters - the Yankees, namely The Declaration of Independence signed by the Congress of The United States of America on July 4th, 1776:
"We held these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are installed among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed "... etc...
Property as "human right" is not, and could not be mentioned in the Declaration at all, because it was exactly this "right", actually the PRIVILEGE of property, which was invoked by the King of Britain as the "justification" of his aggression and war against the United States.
Property negates the Right of Life - in bloody imperialist wars of, e.g., US against Iraq and Afghanistan, or of Israel against all its Arab neighbours and the Palestinians, robbed by Israel of their Land and Liberty. Property negates the Right of Liberty - in slave ownership and debt slavery (peonage). Property negates the Right of the pursuit of Happiness - in subjecting the majority of the people to exploitation and oppresion by the elites keeping them in bitter misery with no way out.
If we read the Declaration further on, it becomes more and more clear, that nowadays the role of the King of Britain is played by the Big Money oligarchy ruling the US Empire, and the role of the first Congressmen and other american revolutionaries - by Mr. Chavez and his supporters, who comprise a huge majority of the people of Venezuela.
Therefore this "International Conference for Freedom and Democracy: The Latin American Challenge" is a scandalous, vicious misnomer. This is a gathering of the enemies of Freedom and Democracy, a dirty propaganda show staged by a bunch of corrupt latino lackeys and puppets of the blood-thirsty, greedy and arrogant US capitalist oligarchs eager to turn Venezuela again into their de-facto colony.
