Subcommander Marcos

From the International Herald Tribune:

After four years of hiding, the charismatic leader of the Zapatista rebel movement in southern Mexico has been holding "town hall" meetings with leftists, labor leaders, students, Indian-rights advocates and other supporters in an effort to forge a national campaign to rewrite Mexico's Constitution along socialist lines.

Why is it that Socialism has failed everywhere it's been tried, and people still think it's the solution to what ails them? I will never understand this.
