I'm back in Bolivia at a time of renewed left electoral success across Latin America, and continued polarization within the country.

With Gustavo Petro in Colombia as the latest step, leftist parties govern the vast majority of Spanish-speaking Latin Americans, hold most of the parliament in Ecuador and are mounting a serious challenge in Brazil.

But there's a huge variation in relative power of these governing parties and grassroots social movements.

On the spectrum between an overarching and dominating party state to radical pluralism, Bolivia remains in the middle. Though few Bolivians would likely say so.
