Evo Morales Quotes.

Evo Morales is the first indigenous President of Bolivia. He runs a left-wing government that believes in equality and education. He raised taxes on big companies in order to combat poverty and illiteracy.

Evo is an environmentalist who believes we have to put the planet before profit.

Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.

Under him the economy flourished.

“Capitalism and the thirst for profit without limits of the capitalist system are destroying the planet…Climate change has placed all humankind before a great choice: to continue in the ways of capitalism and death, or to start down the path of harmony with nature and respect for life.”

We can not have equilibrium in this world with the current inequality and destruction of Mother Earth. Capitalism is what is causing this problem and it needs to end.

There are countries that send us garbage. There are countries that send us their outdated technology as their cooperation. With Fidel [Castro] it is totally different. Fidel is the first and the best one to stand for peace in the world denouncing the interventionist policies of the U.S.

In Iraq, [American administration] said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction endangering mankind. With this pretext, the U.S. intervened militarily, and all they did is take control over oil fields, and oil wells.

The way I see it, it’s impossible to change things without encountering resistance.

Capitalism is the worst enemy of humanity

For me, being leftist means fighting against injustice and inequality but, most of all, we want to live well.

Globalization creates economic policies where the transnationals lord over us, and the result is misery and unemployment.

I am Catholic. But I am opposed to a monopoly when it comes to faith.

“The worst enemy of humanity is U.S. capitalism. That is what provokes uprisings like our own, a rebellion against a system, against a neoliberal model, which is the representation of a savage capitalism. If the entire world doesn’t acknowledge this reality, that the national states are not providing even minimally for health, education and nourishment, then each day the most fundamental human rights are being violated.”

“We are going forward with the idea of a multicultural , a multinational state, trying to live in unity, at the same time respecting our diversity…But we need to all come together so we can live united.”

      • Looks like you’ve overlooked his dictatorship traits as he tore up his countries constitution over regulations of only allowing 2 consecutive terms as President.

        This is what The Washington Times had to say:
        Even though 52 percent of Bolivians voted against extending presidential term limits in a national referendum in February and the Catholic Church said the move could “widen schisms in Bolivian society” and “generate violence,” international reaction to Mr. Morales‘ plan has been muted. Meanwhile, heavy criticism has rained down on the authoritarian moves of the leftist government in Venezuela.
        With President Obama focused on outreach to Cuba and the shaky peace deal in Colombia during his final weeks in office, some critics say he is giving authoritarian figures such as Mr. Morales a pass.
        “The Obama administration has relegated human rights and democracy as an afterthought in Latin America,” said Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, Florida Republican.
        Latin American countries have been traditionally averse to appearing to interfere in each other’s domestic affairs, even as Bolivian opposition figures say Mr. Morales‘ drive to stay in office threatens the democratic rule of law.
        “What Evo Morales has done is a convincing demonstration that he is no longer interested in law, that he is the king and that the laws, the constitution and the Bolivian vote are subject to his whim,” said Jorge Quiroga, opposition leader and former Bolivian president.

      • Your post is about Morales, not his predecessor.

        Is this an example of your lateral thinking powers?

      • No – it is an example of you not being able to widen an argument. I accept he is not perfect and his wish to hang on to power is disturbing but what he achieved was magnificent and not wiped out by that.
        The right-wing always bleat about any left-wing success and try to denigrate it.

      • I completely disagree.
        Lateral thinking would be to discuss why he would be given a free card to sit in for a 4th term.
        Does the USA have any interest in this.
        That would be lateral thinking.

        By looking at previous history, this does not answer any questions or open any debate. As there is nothing to debate and is NOT an example of lateral thinking.

        Did you really believe that his achievements have been produced only on the premise of left-wing ideology?
        FFS Opher!
        Don’t answer that.

      • What? You seek to set the parameters of lateral thinking? Ha ha.
        I care not whether it’s called left, right or up the middle. I like what the man stands for and says and what he achieved. He cares for the planet and isn’t hell-bent on carving it up for profit. I can see why he wouldn’t be to your taste though. You probably think that Steve Bannon is sane and pleasant.

      • I know what lateral thinking is.
        You don’t. It was never part of your life’s menu.

        I was being facetious with my comment about your wish to engage in retroactive analysis of the previous president.
        I couldn’t quite see what the point of that would be, hence my jest.
        However, it seems it just might have crossed your mind as being a goer before the penny dropped.

        I’ll repeat myself.
        Lateral thinking would be to discuss his 4th term tenure and whether the USA would have any interests with that.

        Stick to the point rather than taking your frustrations out on me.
        It really isn’t my fault that you are so fucking blind to so much stuff. It isn’t a case of me “not liking him” – fuck, you are so immature with all your likes and dislikes, you’re like a fucking nine year old.
        I question his reasons for tearing up the constitution of his country. I’m questioning whether the USA have any interest in him doing this.
        And here’s you pointing stupid juvenile fingers of accusation say “oh, but you don’t like him”.
        Fucking grown up Opher.

        And you have the fucking cheek to wipe your ass about widening the argument!

        You know sweet fuck all about Stephen Bannon.
        He’s simply the only name that you’ve managed to remember for no better reason other than pure chance.

      • Seemingly, despite my experience, wide reading and intelligence, I know nothing. Fortunately you are there to cheer me up!! Keep up the good work Andrew. You are the light of the world!

      • So, all joking aside with all this self-congratulatory conjecture, you really can’t see the wood for the trees concerning his 4th tenure?
        That’s not saying too much for your experience, wide reading and intelligence, is it?

        I would have thought that you just might have something to say about that.
        But I suppose because he’s a little knuckle-dragging left-wing socialist gangster he’s beyond any criticism.

      • Y’see, that’s the Mary Whitehouse in you, the bit that’s such a puritanical finger pointing little fucking useless turd, without a single wit, that could only come to such an assumption.

        You have no imagination or lateral thinking powers.
        You are a blinkered sheep completely fucked over with by centuries old failed ideology.
        You were so busy attacking me that you couldn’t even fucking see the question on the page in front of you.
        It took you 6 or 7 posts to even realise there was a question!
        Jeezuz H, Opher, why are you so fucking s l o w ?

        That was The Washington Post, Opher.
        That was hardly a deflection was it? There was no trivia!

        Sometimes, I am left with no more than the simplistic conclusion that you are just a spiteful little hard-boiled, rather unintelligent twat, who can’t quite get to grips with the big picture as it’s all too difficult and worrysome to his hysterical self.

    • Yes Andrew I can see the problem with a fourth term. I don’t like that.
      But you know, seriously, you should try out for one of those ultra-right shock-jocks. You’d be good at it.
      All this ranting and deflecting from real issues onto trivia and self-righteous pomposity coupled with scathing put-downs of anything left-wing. Try out for a shock-jock. They’d employ you.

      • Just deal with the issues at hand – the question that was put to you. The relevant question in tandem with your post.

        You’re too busy on your one-up-manship trip to notice.
        At trip you’ll never get to the end of as you’ll forever be trailing my tail.

      • Andrew just try to remember that, big as you think you are, you do not set the agenda on my blog. I decide what to put out or what to answer or not. It is pointless engaging with you because you take no notice, call me a liar on everything and are plain rude.
        You have a high opinion of yourself but I can’t see much worth to anything you’ve done. It is all selfish reasons. Where’s the altruism or compassion? Have you ever done anything in your life for anybody else?

I'd like to hear from you...
