Tremendously good essay on the communist significance of this increasingly lunatic tropical dictator in Venezuela.

"Chávez is rapidly walking backwards. His primitive brand of socialism is characterized by an authoritarian political regime, a centralized, state controlled economy and a total lack of accountability to the people about the use of the immense amount of money that is going into his hands. This type of dictatorial socialism has failed everywhere, notably in the Soviet Union, under Stalin, ultimately leading to the total collapse of the soviet system. It failed in China, under Mao, where poverty, massive killings of dissenters and totalitarianism have mercifully given way to a strong trend towards capitalism and to the promotion of a new middle class. It has failed in North Korea, a pitiful and sad society, totally isolated from the rest of the world. It has failed in Cuba, where the whole country is essentially paralyzed, engaged in a long death vigil for Castro."
