Compare and contrast William Lind on Chavez, Morales and 4GW in Latin America with the Vila Isabel school of Samba who's theme this year was Latin American unity. There were even rumours that Chavez was going to parade with them, but he turned out to be a no show.

Nevertheless, a Portuguese speaking school who break the rules (essentially trashing any chance they have of winning) to use Spanish words in their Samba, are an interesting non-state phenomenon.

Innane comment on my part: "4GW" as an expression makes me want to puke.

Yeah, the whole topic's pretty ugly, but I think these people have an important part of the jigsaw in terms of how the world is going to be evolving in the near future.
