For The Love Of Wisdom – Mario Vargas Llosa – Caudillo

Mario Vargas Llosa (March 28, 1936 -)

A cross between a superhuman and a jester, the caudillo makes and unmakes things at his will, inspired by God or by an ideology in which socialism and fascism — two forms of statism and collectivism — are nearly always confused, and communicates directly with his people through demagoguery, rhetoric and multitudinous, passionate shows of a magical-religious nature.
