    Those statistics are totally correct and are used by the left as socialists measure, but they are not, those are capitalist reforms, it is a society where means of productions are still in the hands of private owners, despite some so-called nationalization were made, but nationalization is not a socialist measure either

    The leftists continue using the expression fascist coup without knowing the real meaning and origin  of Fascism and Nazism, the Bolshevik revolt was a coup too, but it was not a fascist coup, fascism is a movement which emerged in Italy and Nazism is also a movement who emerge in Germany, and it was a form adopted by capitalism in both countries

    Latest report from Bolivia speaking of strikes by workers and killing killing by new authorities. From Common Dreams website.

    “I am writing from Bolivia just days after witnessing the November 19 military massacre at the Senkata gas plant in the indigenous city of El Alto, and the tear-gassing of a peaceful funeral procession on November 21 to commemorate the dead. These are examples, unfortunately, of the modus operandi of the de facto government that seized control in a coup that forced Evo Morales out of power.

    The coup has spawned massive protests, with blockades set up around the country as part of a national strike calling for the resignation of this new government. One well-organized blockade is in El Alto, where residents set up barriers surrounding the Senkata gas plant, stopping tankers from leaving the plant and cutting off La Paz’s main source of gasoline.”

    Thanks for the information.

    For my part, I spend the best part of my time and effort on Twitter. Not seen much about Bolivia on there?
    As l said, when we mention Socialism, we get the usual out pouring of Venezuela is Socialist tweets. Unfortunately, our Twitter account moderator and myself are having to reply .in the adjective. And so it persists.
    This…..

    14m face starvation in Yemen. The worlds worst humanitarian crisis in 100 years. Says the UN

    65,000 children have died from malnutrition and starvation.

    You have myopia or you’re clueless, and have been brainwashed. The US government and its paymasters, $tn  oil corporations, are not interested in the welfare of Yemenis……Yemen doesn’t have oil. Venezuela has the worlds largest oil reserves. The US government and its capitalist paymasters are not in the slightest bit interested in the plight of Venezuelans……only using it to make capital out of it….. for the purposes of grabbing its natural resources, to benefit their stockholders.

    The main problem in Bolivia is the competition between China and the USA for the monopoly of the natural resources, Evo Morales is not a socialist, and he is not a threat to capital in general, he is a threat to the US capitalism, in the same manner that Hugo Chavez was not a threat to capital Bolivia has more than 51% of the reserve of Lithium and China has signed agreements with the government of Bolivia  to produce lithium  batteries and electrical cars for the benefits of the Chinese capitalist class, and to expand its industrial production. It is not what they leftists are saying that it is a struggle between socialism and capitalism, it is totally false, it is a struggle between capitalists blocks, including the capitalist government , economic system, and the capitalist ruling class of Bolivia. The so called nationalization it is fallacy, peoples do not own any natural resources, they are owned by a minority group of individual, it is similar to the so called national liberation which only liberates one ruling class against the domination and competition from another ruling class

    One Chilean miner worker said during the government of Salvador Allende: If the copper belongs to the Chilean workers, can I take some to my house to make cooking pot for my family ? He never received the proper answer, The same case can be applied to the so called nationalization of the natural resources of Bolivia, do they belong to the workers, or to the national ruling class ? It has been shown thru history that the so called nationalization is just an economic fallacy

    https://imhojournal.org/articles/counterrevolution-in-bolivia-its-roots-and-result/. I wonder, What kind of revolution was taking place in Bolivia ? The IMHO has republished all the works of Rosa Luxembourg, but it looks tike  they skipped Reform and Revolution written by Luxembourg. A reformist movement is not a revolution, therefore,  a counter-revolution can never takes place, even more, there is not a revolutionary movement around the world. Certain reforms were implemented in Bolivia which in some way they benefited the working class, but a revolution was not taking place before the military coup. The left can never catch the ball, it always slipped from their hands

    It looks an interesting read. The review’ conclusion is bit of a spoiler.

    The Kataristas presented an idealized pre-Columbian society, outlining a socialist vision that many Bolivians would like to make a reality. The ideas of national liberation and communal society have taken root. Benjamin Dangl’s book tells how that came about; it will be a valuable resource in understanding what is to come.
