I'm not sorry

Too large to ignore, too small to take power. That was my sad, sobered analysis of the left's dilemma in the aftermath of the 1994 elections in El Salvador, the first after the end of the war. The country was so polarized that the alternative to an FMLN government was continued rule by the far right.

Rightist control has been continuous since. Women are paying an especially horrifying price. It makes our failure all the more bitter.
