The constituent assembly should have become that point of change, of discontinuity that would have catapulted the country towards a better, more united future, an it would have being successful if not used by the maSSist regimen as a means of violent neo Trotskyite revolutionary mace instead of a pacific democratic tool to change the few things missing from a previous Bolivian “Magna Carta”.
From the beginning of this process, when the infamous 2/3 vote issue aroused within the conclave, many have warned that between the most realistic and the worst-case scenarios, there will be an upper limit of capacity from which the Country will start to evolve in the direction of total anarchy. Many warnings were given to the MaSSist regime, unprecedented civil violence had occurred in Cochabamba last January 2007 and then again in Sucre this November 2007; where indigenous fascist masses driven by the president of the country provoked civilian skirmish which produced death citizens of Bolivia. Even most unprecedented was the use of civilian zealots by a democratic elected government, the one of Evo Morales, to prevent legislators that represent the opposition participating on behalf of those that does not alienate with the maSSi doctrine last November 28, 2007. Situation that later on was used in Oruro to approve the regime’s draft constitution.
Yesterday’s abortion of maSSist constitution protected in similar manner by this indigenous fascists was the definite break point for the country and its indisputable necessity to turn towards civil disobedience, which at the end it only means violence and anarchy, to save the little possibility of recuperating democracy in the Country ones again. The use of violent civilian masses to subjugate the will of the free citizens was a practice of “great” but obscure leaders like Mussolini and Hitler; Evo Morales will soon be part of such “selected” list when studying humankind history.
Would it still exist some little possibility for Bolivians to avoid a full scale confrontation; a civil war where no one can win? Since no side has overwhelming human power over the other to balance the confrontation to its favor. There is an overwhelming territorial power clearly distinguished everywhere but Cochabamba and there is also the political and human power of convocation of 2/3 of the prefects of the country. Their actions in the near future are the ones that will set precedent to define if the maSSist break point ends up in as the point of no return for Bolivia. Since the regime has clearly established that the use of the force and civilian confrontation is going to be its way of living until the end of it times.
