  • Chavez was good, at first - maduro bad.
  • Government can not represent the intersts of all citizens ,as it is the executive arm of the ruling class and exists to govern over the people.
  • Latin America's reactionary elites and middle classes constitute the single best argument, ever, for pulling the plug on humanity as a species or civilisation as a project.
  • Maduro was nothing but a Yes Man and Chavez plainly stated that he intended to rule the country for decades.
  • Here is a good explanation of the crisis: http://www.marxist.com/venezuela-last-warning.htm The Bolivarian Revolution must be completed.

  • The US is screaming about Russian interference in the 2016 election but when Hugo Chavez tried to get a fair price for Venezuelan oil the US tired to over throw his government.
  • Chavez was not forced into firing all foreign and many Venezuelan oil workers for which Venezuela's oil industry has still not recovered.
  • The US ships high quality oil to Venezuela which is mixed with Venezuela's dirty oil and then exported.
  • US developments in unconventional oil and gas (shale, CBM etc) basically put a cap on the oil price - since unconventional reserves are so large, and so well distributed globally.
  • Inconveniently for his critics he is being proved right about the disaster the Chavistas have perpetrated on Venezuela and her people whereas the "free thinkers" you champion have gone very quiet indeed.
