VENEZUELA: A Lesson Against 'Strong Man/ Central Authoritarian / Social Justice Governments". A Lesson That No One Will Demand That Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte Or Tavis Smiley To Defend Their Previous Stances Of Support
"CONTAINERIZED PROPAGANDA" - When One's Control Over The TIME, SPACE, AMPLITUDE AND FREQUENCY Of Their MESSAGING Into Their Congregation's Senses - Manipulating Their 'SPIRIT OF DISCERNMENT' To The Point Where The People Fail To REMEMBER "The SIDE OF HISTORY" That The Propagandists Now Stand Upon
To her credit - "Progressive Nationalist" journalist Amy Goodman has been saying for decades: 'JUDGE THE STATE OF JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS OF A DEMOCRACY, not by greatness of its NATIONAL GOVERNMENT, but by these characteristics seen in the LOCAL GOVERNMENTS that have more direct access to the people and their voices".
To her discredit - Amy Goodman RARELY does activist journalism AGAINST 'Progressive Governments' when they act in a manner that is contrary to her Progressive / Socialist world view. A better narrative is to find 'the bankers' /'American foreign policy interference' or 'Right Wing domestic groups' that are the blame for the chaos.
The point is 'NOT ABOUT HUGO CHAVEZ'. These pictures merely stimulate the memories of what you were SOLD about the "Bolivarian Revolution".
The POINT IS that "Strong Governing Institutions" are more important than a STRONG MAN who appeals to the people's desperation and the commences to transact policies that imperial the nation.
10 YEARS AGO WE WERE TOLD ABOUT THE 'HOUSING AND POVERTY ASSISTANCE' RECEIVED BY THE MASSES OF PEOPLE IN VENEZUELA WHO WERE ONCE SHUT OUT OF THEIR NATIONAL ECONOMY DUE TO CLASS STRATIFICATION.
Why isn't any of the American journalistic operations that sold us this narrative DOING A DETAILED FOLLOW UP today?
The real issue is that "VENEZUELA IS A PETRO STATE".
Hugo Chavez financed his 'Robin Hood Scheme' based upon oil above $90 a barrel.
When the price of oil collapsed Venezuela (and several African oil state) came crashing down.
Venezuela had a higher standard of living than did many of these other 'African Petro States', so when the middle class lost their base of economic stability - the riots against the government came full force.
WHY DO YOU LOOK TO 'CHANGE' THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT THAT YOU SAY IS YOUR OPPRESSOR - INTO YOUR 'SOCIAL JUSTICE DISTRIBUTOR' when so much of the ECONOMIC FOUNDATION that you say is the basis of INCOME INEQUALITY comes from sources of CAPITALISM that you also hate?
It would be more logical for you to build a GREEN ECONOMY ELECTRO-STATE and build your SOCIAL JUSTICE FORTUNE by selling electricity to the rest of the world.
