Venezuela is a nightmare and its a lesson for all who think that socialism can work. Of course, history has provided us with so many examples before this one.
Still, there are some who think that you can manhandle markets and do away with things like profit and loss. When you look at what is happening in Venezuela today it’s very sad. You are looking at an economic collapse in the year 2019. It’s violent and it’s ugly.
And it’s on its way to becoming a civil war.
Never forget this collapse was brought on by Hollywoods her Hugo Chavez. This man was a champion of socialism and because he had massive oil profits he was able to make sense of the failed economics of socialism.
As Margret Thatcher once said, “Socialism is a great idea till you run out of other people’s money.”
History will remember the great socialist collapse of Venezuela by the defining need for food. It was so extreme and made such headlines because people were forced to kill the animals at the zoo.
It is hard to imagine with what thoughts they had on their mind, as they hopped the gates to the zoo for a meal. What animals were they after and which would they avoid.
As we speak there is the beginnings of a civil war brewing in Venezuela as supporters of old leadership are clashing with new leadership that seems to be backed by the US.
Things are only going to get worse for the Venezuelan people.
The female doctors and nurses of Venezuela have fallen onto such hard times that they are selling their hair to make ends meet. Some are even crossing over to Columbia to sell their bodies. Its a tragedy in every sense of the word.
