America Latina

Santo Domingo

Latin American politicians in times of elections are like actors standing in front of chasms saying they have uncovered the key in curbing the state from a continued blighted path. As if they had been in meditation up a mountain searching for a fixing truth, so that when the moment is ripe, they rush down sexually aroused at the site of microphones on balconies. Standing on a podium with veins popping from their necks, they’ll say – and we all know it – that the rich and the imperialists are to blame for the abject poverty haunting these developing countries.
