Well in my opinion a revolution (an armed one) is almost imposibble in
Mexico. The struture of politic power in Mexico is what Vargas Llosa called
"the perfect dictatorship". For instance the EZLN turned last election not
to the left (PRD) but to the right (PAN) The people were afraid of the
possibilities tran left implies.
