    Inequality is the keyword to understand why Latin-America Left, restructured as democratic and dialogging, emerged after the sinking of communist bastions and their mutation, as the new Chinese "Market-based socialism". Latin-America history shows a strong and fighting Left, featuring the heroic deeds of Ernesto Guevara and Fidel Castro. But Monroe Doctrine and the Dependency promotion, by the foreign and inner enemies, thwarted that hope of the divers Lefts, now in the Government, now making opposition, now seeking for a weapon-based taking of power. Eventually the Right won and the Lefts got spread by the Region. Then the Leftist people understood that any Dictatorship would restrict freedom to most of citizens. They also learned from the capitalist game, that concentrated interests, specially in Latin-America make much more power, so they had need dialogue, consensus and negotiation toward to reach the power and govern. Nowadays, democratic Leftist Governments, try to make gradual changes, by mean of local, autonomous, heterogeneous and dynamic policies.
