Nobody Elected Marcos

Subcomandante Marcos has mixed feelings about his popularity. That he is unpopular doesn’t seem to affect him. After all he has been on the spot for only one month. But his 36% unpopularity index makes him react like a losing kid who blames the game: “I promise you my unpopularity will get to a hundred percent”.

He means it. He doesn’t believe in democracy, he believes in well, principles. Indeed, the Zapatista movement will be leading an “alternative campaign” based on Marcos’ principles, that is whatever brings publicity and blocks Lopez Obrador’s candidacy.
