This two words caught my attention reading in a reply to Key WestPirate's post Some Excellent Insights. What happens in Nicaragua, could also be the case on many other nations that have almost the same historical and social issues that we have. Societal Trust. As long as there will be poor, and I mean really poor people, leaders like Chavez, rip, and Ortega, they will have a Societal Trust. In this here land, the land of plenty for the few and the land of nothing for the many Societal Trust comes cheap. As long as Ortega manages to purchase, sorry I mean gain the poor's Trust, remember the majority as in voting numbers, he will remain in power as long as he wants, with the help of an editable constitution, a compliant CSE, an armed force that ensures the security of the people, his people, and a happy to do business with you Private Sector, the man is here to stay. This is not a question of whether the Societal Trust has taken hold or not. A Societal Thrust down and backwards more likely instead. Next Elections, now you're being funny and cruel.
