Blog from Boliva recomends a article from the New York Times magazine called Che’s Second Coming? By David Rieff. It’s a pretty fair look at Evo Morales and the leftist revolution occuring in Bolivia. At least from what I know on this subject – which probably isn’t sufficiant. That’s why I’m reading more.
I have to agree with the commenters on Blog from Boliva that the focus on Che seems mostly hype. From the comments:
“Che was a white man trying to rally the indigenous around his favored issues. Evo is indigenous and trying to rally everyone simultaneously around his issues and those that affect everyone. If a purely classist stance is taken (Che,) the age-old ethnic divide will keep the indigenous from true liberation.”
Read the artilce, blog, and all of the comments to some context.
