During the last quarter of the twentieth century, Latin America was dominated by authoritarian military regimes and immense human rights violations. Especially in Chile and El Salvador, where human rights abuses were rampant during Pinochet’s dictatorship and the Salvadoran civil war. The region is still dealing with the legacy of terror from its authoritarian past. Cath Collins, a professor and researcher in the School of Political Science at the University of Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile, runs a project mapping recent human rights trials in Chile. A recent book by Collins, Post-Transitional Justice: Human Rights Trials in Chile and El Salvador, describes the struggle to obtain justice for human rights violations in two countries that have adopted very different strategies.
Foreign and Drug Policy In examining the transitions in US government policy related to drug abuse and trafficking, historians are consistently confronted with the difficult task of analyzing the different motivations for variations in strategy from the Nixon administration to the present. In this specific case, our investigation centers upon the interplay of United States foreign policy in Latin America in the 1980’s (pursued mostly by the CIA) and the broad campaign against drugs both at home and abroad. At first glance, one might suppose that a moral ideology such as the war on drugs would be a multi-faceted operation with little available room for compromise. After all, an analogous crusade against terrorism has emerged as the overriding logic and driving force behind current foreign policy, so why shouldn’t narcoterrorism have a similar place in initiatives abroad? It would make sense that since we are now committed to eliminating any support for states that sponsor terrorism, nations like Colombia, Panama, Nicaragua, and Honduras should be dealt with in a similar manner for their complicity in drug trafficking.
The Stockholm International Peace Research institute (SIPRI) which is an organization that constantly research the global performance in terms of geopolitical issues, argue that South America, could face some conflicts and the incidence of them strongly depends on the military potential, the tension level and the impact of the arms purchase (Child 1985, pp 04), furthermore, depend of strategic and questionable alliances and the political beliefs. These aspects have a wide significance when the possible effects, that a country’s peculiar political behaviour, are analysed. One of the most irregular political behaviour for instance is the Venezuelan case, which has led a new form of socialism in South America and part of Central America.

Marx believed that the inequality in society would eventually lead to a social revolution in which the upper and middle classes would be overthrown in a social revolution led by the working class. The product Marx envisioned of the revolution would be a society where all were equal. This theory was termed Marxism. Since Karl Marx believed that literature was one way that ideas about society was conveyed to and influenced the masses, he began to review literature in search of social injustices and inequalities which was the beginning of Marxist criticism. "The writer must earn money in order to be able to live and to write, but he must by no means live and write for the purpose of making money."
Karl Marx directs his attention to the bourgeois and proletarians in The Communist Manifesto. Marx thought that the two classes would continue to raise the conflicts in their corresponding classes because of the nature of capitalism. Karl Marx viewed the bourgeois as “the ‘dangerous classes.’ The social scum” (Marx 20), which depicts the status of bourgeois in his eyes. They own nothing but the right to sell their own labor. In order to remove the wealthy class from its position, Marx advocated the people to start a revolution.
For the purpose of this paper I will be focusing on his theories about Wage-Labor, Surplus Value and Alienation and using them to explain Wal-Marts actions.
