SOUTH AMERICAN OPPORTUNITY FOR POLITICAL ADVANCEMENT
by Michael Churchill
Latin America is a checkerboard with three types of squares:
1) Western civilization (Chile, parts of Argentina, parts of Brazil, nearly all of Costa Rica, parts of Colombia, Panama, half of downtown Lima, parts of Mexico;
2) Primitive civilizations that WORK (rural Peru and Ecuador for instance, Actually the rural parts of much of Latin America);
3) Chaos (Much of Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Rio favelas, Buenos Aires slums, Venezuela).
There are all sorts of interesting possibilities for political advancement in Latin America. The mere fact that Bolsonaro EXISTS tells you it’s not just going to be a repeat of idiocy ad infinitum.
