Perhaps not, Dennis, but I do recall (for example) how you jumped all over the Bolivian legislature’s child-labour law before others, better informed, explained the context: http://www.telesurtv.net/english/opinion/Bolivias-Example-of-Legislating-with-the-People-20140725-0034.html. In any case, I haven’t yet seen any report in English on the recent subnational elections in Bolivia. Emily’s article, written before the elections, doesn’t fill the bill, as I’m sure you would agree. So Marxmail readers may just have to wait a few more days....

I had no schema in mind when I posted the article. Having no detailed knowledge of the Bolivian situation, I was merely looking for feedback from those who have followed it more closely.

 There is much more to be said about the subnational election results (and I intend to write my own piece, which I will post to this list). But isn't it time that we all paid more attention to the facts "on the ground" and a little less to simply reposting the occasional article that serves mainly to sustain someone's particular schema?
