    You know that Counterpunch is a very famous American Left-Wing publication in part inspired by the Radical Left-Wing newspaper Appeal To Reason? They are of course going to be biased in favour of Nicolás Maduro.

    IF he was a Right-Wing Dictator you would have posted about 50 threads about Venezuela by now.

    How about some more Mainstream news organisations on Venezuela and the situation it is in ie. Left-Wing Dictatorship, Nicolás Maduro has now almost TOTALLY shut down ALL Independent Newspapers, Independent ie. CRITICAL of him and his Dictatorship:

    As it slides toward authoritarianism, Venezuela targets one of its last independent newspapers

    Illustrating that Leftism in all forms from Socialist to Communist is TERRIBLE for the Economy and that Leftists have no concept of Economics, Venezuela's Inflation rate is now 40,000%

    Venezuela's inflation rate tops 40,000 percent for first time ever

    Maria Corina Machado is one of the FEW Venezuelan Opposition Politicians that Maduro's Dictatorship has not YET arrested and thrown into a dungeon, but he's working on doing that just like Maduro has THOUSANDS of the Opposition rotting in dungeons:

    Venezuelan opposition activist says she isn't part of any Maduro assassination plot

    The UN High Commission for Human Rights has AGAIN condemned the vile human rights abuses in Venezuela ordered by Nicolás Maduro and carried out by State Security Services ie. Left-Wing Death Squads , this also illustrates WHY The UN High Commission for Human Rights ITSELF has NO moral highground in these issues because Venezuela is a MEMBER of The UN Human Rights Commission, along with The Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola, Saudi Arabia, China and Egypt ALL nations who have TERRIBLE records of human rights abuses of their OWN populations:

    The UN Exposes the Atrocities of Nicolás Maduro in a Devastating Report

    The recent General Election in Venezuela was NOT Democratic it has NOT been accepted by either the United States OR the EU, the ENTIRE political opposition boycotted it, most from the prison cells that Maduro has them rotting in and now the Venezuelan Supreme Court which is full of Maduro loyalists have said that NOBODY is even allowed to challenge the election results, so full-on Dictatorship then:

    Venezuela supreme court rejects challenge to Maduro’s ‘sham’ re-election

    One of the reasons why the Liberal Party got crushed in last month's Ontario election was because utility prices skyrocketed after the Liberal government mandated a certain quota of renewable energy that Ontario Hydro had to buy.

    Sweden and Norway are both first world nations, with a higher living standard than the US. They have a very good health care system, and their people live longer, and have a far lower infant mortality rate than does the US. Yes, they are working on renewables. Both on land and on the sea. In some very innovative ways. We can learn much from them.
