Bolivians are hostages of Castrochavism

Evo Morales, as an outstanding student of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez, completely dynamited the democratic institutions in Bolivia. Nothing was left standing, everything was put at the service of the coca grower leader and his henchmen of him. For example, the General Law of Telecommunications, Information and Communication Technologies -in its article 10 referred to the distribution of frequencies for radio broadcasting- establishes that the State will have up to 33% of the spaces, private companies similar 33%, radio stations community social character, up to 17% and the means of indigenous peoples, natives, peasants, and intercultural and Afro-Bolivian communities with another 17%....Read more >>

Parliamentarianism and dollarization to strengthen democracy

The recurrence of economic and political crises is a feature of almost all Latin America's countries whose instability generates economic as well as political imbalances that negatively affect democracy. Bad governance crises are quickly turned into State crises and then into crises of the democratic system with consequent economic and institutional damages that are then used to install dictatorships. The real facts demand us to consider the strengthening of democracy by going from the presidentialism system to parliamentarianism and by formalizing the dollarization of the economy of the region....Read more >>

A hidden episode of anti-Zionism

Dominique Lapierre has died. He was 91 years old. When I met him, I was interested in writing about the creation of the State of Israel, and he had devoted an entire book to it. He was a formidable chronicler, trained in Paris Match, a magazine in which he had collaborated for a few years. At that time, he worked together with Larry Collins, an American journalist who would bring him English-speaking readers. But the essential work was managed by him, or at least it seemed to me....Read more >>
