Criticism of Latin America’s radical governments has become common currency
among much of the international left. While none have been exempt,
Ecuador’s government of President Rafael Correa has been a key target.

But a problem with much of the criticism directed against Correa is that it
lacks any solid foundation and misdirects fire away from the real enemy.

original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man
