Default Venezuela= victim of capitalism .

Capitalism wrecked Venezuela .

I just check the Australian Green/Left weekly and found these truly quotable quotes .....

# We are feeling the effects of these evils and the fact that after more than
10 years since Chavez declared the government and Bolivarian process to
be anti-imperialist and socialist, we have not been able to transcend capitalism.
# We are suffering the perverse effects of bureaucracy, corruption,
improvisation, all within a framework of capitalism.
# And from the actions of those capitalists who never agreed with the Chavista project and that today, like never before, are conspiring to bring down the government of Nicolas Maduro.

The old capitalists are desperate to recuperate control over the state to have control over the distribution of the oil rent; control that they lost with Chavez’s victory in 1998.

The old capitalists have been driven crazy and in these last three years more so, because this rent has been reduced due to the fall in oil prices.
We are celebrating the fact that we have been able to draft up a statement together with other
organisations across the world, among those, the Socialist Alliance in Australia,
which makes it clear that the way out of the crisis that the Venezuelan process finds itself
in has to be democratic, revolutionary and socialist.

And who said it , Stalin Perez Borges ( you read that correctly ... ''Stalin'' )

Well there ya go , if only they had been more socialist .
What would I do without the Green/Left weekly to break the monotony of my day .

All paper is a short position on gold . “Gold is money. Everything else is credit.”

“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.” ( Noam Chomsky )

‘you can judge a man’s spirit by the amount of truth he can tolerate.’ .... Nietzsche
