Zapatismo is conjugated in the present, it is not past history or a museum piece. Zapatismo is a watershed of national political life and of the global social movement. It is a living history, a current construction, an unending proposal.

Eighteenth Part: Rage.

Rage: Is it inherited? is it acquired? is it cultivated? is it lost? is it transformed? is it contagious? through what channels is it transmitted? how does it become collective? is it creative? at what point does it become dignified? when does it begin to distance itself from rancor and revenge? does it get closer to justice?
