Last fall, Fourth World Eye examined the need to address balance in Bolivia between haves and have nots. Since then, the United States embassy in La Paz has funded violent subversion of the more equitable constitution supported by President Evo Morales.
Overthrowing governments in Latin America is old hat to US agencies, but with the emergence of indigenous leadership like Morales, the undermining of democracy opposed to US dominance has taken on added importance. In the aftermath of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, destabilizing Bolivia, for the United States, has become a mission in preventing the establishment of an inspiring model of non-violent social change for the Fourth World. It is only a matter of time before the US succeeds in creating another civil war in order to guarantee the larcenous privileges of transnational corporations.
While indigenous leaders and supporters worldwide watch with horror the ongoing prevention of authentic self-governance foisted by a morally decrepit superpower, the reality of the Fourth World War has some preparing for self-defense.
