The Bolivian government is ushering in a new era at the end of the Mayan Calender year (Dec. 21 2012). Bolivian Government officials have decided to to ban Coca Cola to mark the end of an era where Capitalism was king. This will mark the end of capitalism and usher in a new era of equality, the Bolivian govt says.
Bolivian foreign minister David Choquehuanca is proud of the decision and beliefs the time to end Capitalism globally is now. “December 21 of 2012 will be the end of egoism and division. December 21 should be the end of Coca-Cola.”
According to Forbes.com Choquehuanca said “The twenty-first of December 2012 is the end of selfishness, of division. The twenty-first of December has to be the end of Coca-Cola and the beginning of mocochinche (a local peach-flavored soft drink),” Choquehuanca told reporters at a political rally for Bolivia’s president, Evo Morales. “The planets will line up after 26,000 years. It is the end of capitalism and the beginning of communitarianism,” he added.
Forbes also said that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will lead his country down the same path. It’s looking like the Domino effect is occurring down in South America for North American food and beverage companies.
Bolivia is on the verge of legalizing Coca leaves for consumption. Coca leaves have been a stimulant used in native South American cultures for hundreds of years. In 1961 the stimulant was outlawed, but thanks to Evo Moralas the stimulant which was originally used in Coca Cola is making a comeback.
