Evo Morales, the former President of Bolivia, the first one from the indigenous community should be the most pleased with the results as his country has returned to #socialism and has democratically thrown away the American backed right wing government.
This is the power of the people and this power definitely come from the ‘ideological blend’ which Fidel Castro and Che Guevara put in the entire Latin American world.
While the Western World may call them ‘terrorists’ or left wing rebels, the people continue to reject the western led right wing capitalists. At the end of the day, the new ‘liberal’ ‘disorder’ led by the western controlled capitalist elite is nothing but sucking of the natural resources of former colonies of the Empire whether British, Spanish or French but now people have risen and are speaking.
American denied Evo Morales a fourth term last year under the pretext of ‘transparency’ in elections and imposed their pigmy but people have defeated him and returned to the Evo Morales party.
Ironically, Morales was celebrating his party victory in Brazil in Exile.
It is sad but let us make it clear to all that ‘socialism’ is not a negative word as many of the western commenters might want us to believe, of course, their Caste-cactus counterparts in India too feel that Socialism is a dirty word and only thing that work is ‘caste’ capitalism’ in India which has placed India in the global hunger index at 97, below than other South Asian neighbours.
South Asia need to embrace socialism as part of both culture as well as politics. Otherwise the income disparity will increase and feudal order will further prevail.
People have to unite and join hands to defeat the caste capitalists in the very similar way as it has happened in Bolivia. Let us hope good sense will prevail in our part of the world too.
