They pledged to do it, and they did - Bolivian feudal lords, mass media magnates and other treasonous “elites” – they overthrew the government, broke hope and interrupted an extremely successful socialist process in what was once one of the poorest countries in South America. One day, they will be cursed by their own nation.... Read More
Jeanine Anez, one of the Bolivian Spanish elite, has declared herself the President of Bolivia. She is one of the elite allied with Washington who accused Evo Morales of rigging his reelection. But the CIA’s Bolivian lackeys who forced Morales to resign his presidency don’t bother with elections. They just declare themselves president like Juan... Read More
Not long ago I read that a US Assistant Secretary of State, or perhaps it was a member of the National Security Council, said that now that Washington had reestablished control over Ecuador, it would not be long before the governments of Bolivia, Venezuela, and Cuba would be overthrown. Venezuela is proving to be hard... Read More
A military ultimatum has succeeded in deposing nationalist Bolivian president Evo Morales in what is being widely labeled a coup. Opposition parties - led by neo-liberal Carlos Mesa and a Korean Evangelical Pastor Chi Hyun Chung - protested against the election results late October when Evo Morales soundly surpassed both in the first round of...

Simultaneously, there's the small matter of the United Nations General Assembly sanctioning the troubled birth of a new, multipolar world. As a 21st-century counterpart to the Dadaist Manifesto, this chain... Read More
Bolivian fascists have seized power in five of the richest states in Bolivia, forcefully ousting all national officials, murdering, injuring and assaulting leaders, activists and voters who have backed the national government – with total impunity. Ever since Evo Morales was elected President over 33 months ago, the Bolivian far-right has taken advantage of every... Read More
It was forty years ago on October 8 when he was executed by a Bolivian Army subjected to CIA orders - sprinkled with Bolivian Rangers trained by US instructors imported from Laos. Ernesto "Che" Guevara de la Serna might have been an austere, serious nemesis of the Western capitalist order. Or he might have been... Read More
"Hitler" did New York and was received like, well, the new Adolf Hitler. Then he flew south and was received like a revolutionary hero. Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad has seen the face of two radically different Americas. Call it a practical lesson in the new multipolar world order. After the sparring at Columbia University and... Read More
Evo Morales’ Pursuit of Normal Capitalism
Many progressive overseas academics, politicians, journalists and commentators have glowingly characterized the Evo Morales regime as ‘radical’, ‘revolutionary’ and part of an ‘anti-imperialist bloc’. Academics as diverse as Noam Chomsky, Ignacio Ramonet, Emir Sader, Heinz Dietrich, Marta Hanecker and Immanuel Wallerstein have described Evo Morales as part of a new leftist wave sweeping Latin America....

Ideological blinders and sheer ignorance of elementary facts frequently prevent politicians, journalists and political activists from understanding developments in Latin America. This infirmity is not confined to any single point in the political spectrum – even if the ostensible political preference and perspective may be at polar opposites. A reading of the pronouncements and writing... Read More
A realistic assessment of the electoral victory of Evo Morales requires knowledge of his recent role in Bolivia?s popular struggles, his program and ideology as well as the first measures adopted by his regime.
