Two articles from different perspectives:

The first gives a high-level overview of what Morales wants to accomplish; the second lionizes one of the wealthy landowners who's having her land redistributed.

What do you think?  Although I'm in favor of greater economic equality, Mugabe really messed up Zimbabwe with his land redistribution efforts, which he ended up re-redistributing later (Oops!  My bad!).  Do you think this can work?
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .
