Venezuela about to explode

February 18, 2016

A few days ago I had a sudden brainwave: of course Venezuela’s socialist government cannot give up on its revolution, because for 17 years its followers have believed every single word the great comandante Hugo Chávez, who passed away in 2013, told them.  To tell them now that Chávez might have been wrong or at least not completely right, would be the cruelest thing to do. Like trying to convince a firm believer that God doesn’t exist.

Only people with at least the charisma and authority of Chávez could pass on such a message. ‘Dear chavistas: we are modifying the revolution’s track and choosing a different road to follow. We need to do that to save our country and your future.’ There is nobody in Venezuela who could do the job.
