...Lousy management does that, not socialism.
Venezuela is the long (60+ year victim) of a combination of Marxist-Leninist leadership philosophy wrapped in the disguise of Interventionist Economics the modern end run of which has become full blown socialism defined by government control of its economy and ownership of its industry--all headed by a ruthless dictatorial regime. While the current and mainstreamed ideological platform of Democratic Socialism is not the same species as classic murder world Marxist-Leninist socio-communism with its calls for universal healthcare and a living wage, American branded Democratic Socialism is every bit as dangerous, and I will tell you why.
Venezuela is the perfect cautionary tale to be told as a dire warning to any American political entity crying out for real increase in U.S. government economic or infrastructural Interventionism. See, over six decades--and while Venezuela's earliest presidents were steeped in communist philosophy yet did not directly apply its doctrines--Venezuelan government did intervene to a greater and greater extent in "patches" or bailouts to save various privately owned industries and commodity markets. So what happened over decades was eventually, at the end of all of these government bailouts, the government ended up owning most of private industry anyway.
And therein lies the great danger in America of today if our government leaders follow Venezuela's with a future history of similar bailouts of private industries and banks, and the nationalization of massive parts of our infrastructure such as healthcare and education. Interventionism is a very, very slippery slope albeit a sometimes necessary one, that can--and has in the case of Venezuela--dropped off into bankrupt authoritarian socialism.
Great, and where do we have State Capitalism?
Man you are ignorant.
everywhere we have States and statism.
not as ignorant as you; i can resort to one less fallacy than you.
Socialism allowed their country to nationalize oil and mineral resources. They were the NUMBER ONE producer of oil in the world and had zero debt. A series of military coups and the death blow applied by Hugo Chavez has turned Venezuela into a hell hole of misery and a problem now for the whole world as we deal with millions of illiterate, dirt poor refugees.
It's always been like that in Latin America, Used to Be under American protection of oligarchs and American monopolies. Now under Trump, we are sabotaging Venezuelan in many ways so you can say BS like that...
