World's Capital of Inflation, Homicide, and Scarcity

This is the half of the country whose sons and daughters have taken to the streets to protest against a repressive regime that treats them as mortal enemies. And maybe they are. After all, they represent the vanguard of a society no longer willing to tolerate an abusive government with disastrous results to show for its 15-year grip on power: Venezuela is now the world champion of inflation, homicide, insecurity, and shortages of essential goods-from milk for children to insulin for diabetics and all kinds of indispensable products. All this despite having the greatest oil reserves in the world and a government with absolute control of all state institutions and levers of power. Sadly, that government has used its immense wealth and authority to push through unsustainable populist policies, buy votes, jail opposition leaders, and shut down television channels. Daily shortages of basic goods, fear of crime, and hopelessness have become unbearable.-The Tragedy of Venezuela

But, but, wait...aren't the revolutionaries the ones in power there? Aren't THEY the ones who embrace Fidel Castro's "revolutionary" Cuba? No, the real revolution is always AGAINST tyranny and repression and state control of people's lives. Fuck Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro, Castro and the whole evil, lying, socialist bunch of commie bastards!
