    Another great example of Manifest Destiny doctrine that has plagued so many minds ever since the formation of the US. Subtle language to let know the mindless public opinion, that Latin America or other non western can not govern itself without the intervention of the super powers. Misciting the words by Bolivar " governing them[Latin American countries] is like plowing the sea" That Bolivar said reffering to western controlled countries brainwashed by its politics concerning the "other" Just like Shakespeare's The Tempest. Caliban represented the new world inhabitants, while "Prospero" [prosperity] was the western figure. Caliban was rotten, prospero was educated, Caliban was doomed while Prospero was restored to the nobility from where he came. Funny to know that Shakespeare wrote 116 years after the "discovery" and never traveled to the new world, just word of mouth to brand the folks of the new world as savages. It remainds me about the coup of state in Guatemala by the US. Overthrow a lawful and democratic goverment that wished to eliminate the slavery conditions that were maintained by the US interest abroad [be known as: United Fruit Co.= Chiquita brand] Now, and thanks to the US worries of communis, there is political unrest in Guatemala ever since. Remember the US contra Affair? How was that the US Marine officer involved got away with it and you park for some minutes under a no parking sing and get the whole weight of the law/ Funny isn'it? Nice piece of literature aimed at twisting the facts.
