Below I translated excerpts from the speech of Daniel Ortega, the president of Nicaragua. It was given at the Second National Congress of the Sandinista Youth on July 19th, 2010.  Decide for yourself on merits of his speech.

“Who is the enemy? The enemy is the tyranny of world Capitalism. And then a guy or girl will ask us: bueno. And where is that tyranny, that I don’t see here, that I don’t feel here? How difficult is this model of exploitation! But it is that this model of exploitation had managed to establish demands upon the population, from the most humble people, in which the normal aspiration of a Human being to improve, to have better conditions of living…
