Bolivia: A coup or not a coup? That’s not a question.

11 November 2019

Whether the “irregular change” in government in Bolivia was justified by a dubious rationale for a fourth term for Evo Morales seems a legitimate question, and whether or not Morales’ government was “good” or “bad” in any sense, whether it met the needs of various factions (including those of foreign multinationals) are more questions for historians to answer later. Was the run for a fourth term at all legitimate?  Were trade deals with China in the best interests of the people?  Were their corruptos in the party?  In other words, answering the immediate questions, “Was this a coup?” with rhetorical questions in an attempt to avoid the obvious.

 

Feel free to disagree.
