Folks, did you see what’s happening in Peru? My Peruvian relatives are in a state of panic. The presidential election is between a crazy Marxist guy controlled by Cubans and Venezuelan Chavistas and Keiko Fujimori, a corrupt daughter of the former dictator Fujimori.
And a week ago there was a massacre in Peru that was possibly organized by the Sendero Luminoso, the Maoist terrorist group that was very active in the 1980s but never really went away.
The Peruvian relatives say there will be a civil war if the crazed Marxist plant wins. I’m very worried. I can’t believe Latin America is going back to the destructive, ridiculous fantasies of the 1970s that destroyed the region. I mean, yes, I absolutely can believe it. I’ve been teaching about the likelihood of this happening for several years. I don’t want to believe it, though.
