Local Political Autonomy in Bolivia

Their new Constitution of 2009[1] along with the Statutes of Autonomy[2] of 2008, provide a rich and lucrative path of actions towards local socialism (Anarcho-Syndicalism) and ranging capitalism (Schumpeter). Or something. Run them in parallel. Capitalism is not specified in the Constitution.

Consider the following quote:

Jurisdiction and Access

The Action for Constitutional Protection (Accion de Amparo Constitucional[3]) shall take place against the illegal or unjustified acts or omissions of public servants or of individuals or collectives, who restrict, suppress or threaten to restrict or suppress rights recognized by the Constitution and the law. (Art. 128)

This is what we need in the spirit of States’ Rights, to promote the local solution.
