The Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez began his journey with an emotional speech, which was not congruent, which managed to convince millions of citizens who were tired of the corruption of previous regimes.
With the people committed to the Chavista faith, it was not difficult to move to authoritarian measures. He set out a doctrine of how his people had to behave, he decided what was good and what was bad for the people. He wrote a new Constitution that marked even personal and spiritual behaviors. Thus began the debacle of a rich country that today lives in a humanitarian crisis.
Chávez could with all but cancer and his dictatorship demoted his successor Nicolás Maduro, who in addition to accelerating the Venezuelan debacle … talks to animals.
A few years ago Maduro surprised the world, and delighted psychiatrists, when he began to talk to a bird that he claimed was the spirit of Hugo Chávez.
Now he began to talk to a horse from which he was also waiting for an answer. You have to see him pretending a dialogue with the horse while it is stimulated by the sweet words of the dictator.
It seems like a comedy routine, but it really is the example of how a country failed in the possibility of putting limits on power to lead to a maddening subject.
So far this century, the Venezuelan regime has persecuted opponents, scientists, journalists, the middle class, anyone who does not endorse the single guide to Bolivarian truth.
Hugo Chávez sat in the presidential chair since the beginning of this century to polarize Venezuelan society, to create a false struggle against anyone who had an economically comfortable life.
The dictator took it upon himself to make his broad base of followers believe that there was a conspiracy against him by anyone who opposed him or simply did not follow his word.
From there, he began to use the Legislative power, the organs of prosecution and administration of justice to persecute his opponents, whom he described as enemies of the country.
Chávez criticized and established a budget fence to the autonomous universities of his country because he believed that Bolivarian education was the best way to ideologically control young people who were right-wing with the existing educational models.
He destroyed private property, nationalized everything he could and condemned his country to a downward spiral from which he will not emerge for many generations.
When the dictator died, his successor did nothing but deepen the division, social hatred and iron control in a country where today income poverty reaches 95% of its population and extreme poverty reaches three out of four Venezuelans .
The country with the largest oil reserve in the world has to contemplate its self-destruction because it did not know how to stop in time a regime that destroyed them and that today, at the height of madness, allows its dictator to dialogue with a horse and be a laughingstock of the entire world. A world that, by the way, does nothing to save a country like Venezuela from disgrace.
A rich country, but poor
