Bolivian Break Point

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.

I am hoping that you will give your opinion on Santa Cruz and the issue of autonomy, especially in light of the events that are unfolding today. (If you have a post on autonomy somewhere in your archives, let me know.) Your country is very much on my mind and heart right now. I was glad to finally see coverage in the New York Times of the recently building tension; if only America's media would cover all parts of the world equally instead of singling out places such as Iraq and Venezuela. Have the brightest Christmas possible and remember that there is always Hope.

With all due respect, Chiarina, this site is not the best place to know about Bolivia's situation, let along the only one. If you REALLY want to know about this South American country you'd better visit REAL news and analysis sites. I have nothing against it but I believe that the views of this site are totally biased against the current office of Bolivia. I would like to suggest you more sites on this issue, unfortunately they may all be written in Spanish.

Rebel Greetings!

Rebelde, really, we need advice from a person like you, narrow minded, to define how should we read or not? We have plenty of places to know about Bolivia and whoever writes this blog is sometimes pretty clever. I don’t usually enter to discuss because he doesn’t update it very much; but I like reading it and will continue doing it.

I don’t know why the rebelde dude cares so much about people reading or posting here, even one person drives him nuts; maybe there is more true about Libre’s comments than appear at the beginning

I entered you post Rebelde, what a joke; you are some kind of tree huger with almost no opinion on your own. As a matter of fact, I read some of your opinions on Libre’s posts and have nothing to say; you just cry about what is written but propose nothing. I feel like commenting a little more here just to piss you off.

Ok, you are all 'free' to do it.

No, BL is not my first source of information on Bolivia. I also read the Democracy Center blog and La Razon (yes, I read Spanish).

Of course this site is "biased against the current office of Bolivia." Why does that make it invalid? Jim's blog, from the Democracy Center, is very much biased for the current Bolivian government. Bias is inevitable. I try to get both sides of the picture, and I keep finding myself in agreement with BL. I love his shrewdness; his expression; his logic. His viewpoints are solidly based in reality, in an ability to see future consequences of current actions. He doesn't buy into sweet-sounding deals that will turn sour over time.

Question: Why do you call yourself "rebelde"? And what are "Rebel greetings"?

And now, because you have piqued my curiosity, I'm going to have a look at your blog and see what it is you consider to be REAL information about your country.
