    May I politely ask if you feel that you have anything else in common with Trujillo . I am not referring to his violent criminal side but to other aspets of his personailty and life

    interesting article about some trujillo's policies that are still observed in DR. it mentions concordat (signed in 1954), the construction of palacio nacional (it's quite stunning on the inside), creation of banco de reservas and banco agricola as well as other buildings and institutions. policia nacional was also formed during trujillo reign (1936).
    the article also mentions the fact that trujillo changed the constitution seven times. which i see as a bit of a criticism of recent administrations that also fiddled with it.
