The parasitic left of Bolivia (from Jaime Solares to the POR and the LOR-CI) find refuge in a peculiar excuse: while the masses were submerged in an “electoral high”, they were not concerned with such nonsense: they continued to “watch over the arms” of the revolution.
“Whoever reaches government had better do the right thing —threatened Jaime Solares a week before the polls—. If they don't, in April we will begin to take action in order to have a workers and peasants government” (La Nación, 12 December). In the meantime, now to sleep a nice siesta.
Initially, that truce was to go on until April.
Then they extended it three more months, until July.
Now they have postponed it indefinitely. “The future president achieved yesterday a strategic political agreement with the social forces of the combative region of El Alto. Evo Morales achieved the support of the highland social movements (which) left with no effect a period of 180 days which had been conceded a priori to the new government for it to carry out transformations” (Clarín, 24 December).
Those invoking the revolution in the short term, have ended up completely surrendered and at the feet of Morales, confirming what we had said with a great deal of anticipation: that the only function of all this “revolutionary” verbal diarrhea was to cover-up its capitulation.
