South American Unity

It’s an amazing thing to see South American nations so united.  It would be naive to think they are models of virtue just because they have have left governments, but they certainly are models of self respect, as seen recently in their solidarity around Evo Morales’ plane being forced down.

    nice inspiring post, however i disagree with:

    >It would be naive to think they are models of virtue since they have have left governments

    are you confusing ‘left’ with’ communist’? i don’t think a ‘left government’ implies lack of virtue…

      My words were actually unclear. I meant to say that “It would be naive to think they are models of virtue just because they have left governments.” I certainly didn’t mean to imply that having a left government somehow tarnished it. Especially because of their unity, among other reasons, I think the left governments are much better than the traditional oligarchic governments that have come before.
