The main problem is that president Morales is trying to impose Marxism upon Bolivian people. This ideology is a failure; it does not work. Bolivian people, if they realize this, will never let it hapen. I do not think Costas is trying to divide the country. On the contrary, we are united as never before against Marxist ideology. This is what is happenning in Bolivia

I tend to agree with you on this view. Evo's approach is really bad. He isn't considering the reprecutios that are the result of Marxism. I don't think that Evo will succed.

Marxist ideology? What do you mean by that. Marxism is just a just a method to analize history. Acording to Marxism: capitalism creates its own grave. Bolivia is a capitalist country and despite our wealth we are absolutely poor. We want to reverse that. We want to be able to eat. Is that Marxism? Marxism analizes history and economics, it doesn't give you a pattern or ideology to follow. According to Marxism workers would be the creators of a new society. In Bolivia peasants outnumber workers. We do not have industries. Our workforce is small compared to other countries. How could a Marxist theory work in Bolivia? On the contrary, the situation in Bolivia contradicts Marx. In the absence of a revolutionary class, peasants who are not revolutionary, according to Marxist ideology, are in charged of moving forward and making sure that this country from a non-developed country at least develops to the point of feeding its own people first.

Costas is a thief who got caught thieving, and he is trying to attack his victim. If the victim shows that she is more powerful than him, Costas, may end up in Miami like Sanches de Lozada.
