Chaos In Bolivia

This article, translated from the Spanish, is originally from the Bolivian branch of the anarcho-socialist news service Indymedia, and put up on the website of the Boston branch.

We at the DR oppose BOTH Capitalism and Socialism - including the anarcho-socialism that all branches of Indymedia support. And we always will. But they have been covering this next outbreak of left-wing violence in South America in detail, something the so-called "mainstream" American Press has not. They should be ashamed of themselves, but their consciences have been seared, or seem to be so.

Once again, the supporters of Marx, Engels and Lenin have set their sights on undermining another nation to Socialism - just like they have done recently to Brazil, Uruguay and Venezuela. Turning toward the lying promises of Bolivian Socialism - including the call for "nationalizing" their oil industry - will not cure the problems plaguing them by globalist multi-nationals. It will not help to relieve the grinding poverty the farmers, peasants and working men endure in Bolivia.

This is but another area where the sane policies of Distributism are desperately needed. Let us all continue to learn, pray and work to apply them where we live - including in Bolivia.

The inability of the "brand" of "Capitalism" practiced in many/most Latin American Countries to provide a decent living for the average family, makes the alternative of "Socialism" they are embracing SEEM like a solution, but alas it is not. The rapid expansion of virulent Socialist/communist governemnts throughout South/ Central America is very disturbing. Is there a good source of news on our freinds south of the Rio Grande anywhere on the internet, a one stop website?

Jeff, as far as English-language news from Latin America, try this:

http://www.southamericadaily.com/

And for Central America:

http://www.wncentralamerica.com/

Also, don't forget to check Yahoo and Google for their foreign news as well. And see if the Latin news websites also have English pages to read. Hope this helps.
