Crisis in Venezuela
A socioeconomic and political crisis began in Venezuela in 2010 under the presidency of Hugo Chávez and has continued into the current presidency of Nicolás Maduro. The current situation is the worst economic crisis in Venezuela's history and among the worst crises experienced in the Americas, with hyperinflation, soaring hunger, disease, crime and death rates, and massive emigration from the country. Observers and economists have stated that the crisis is not the result of a conflict or natural disaster but the consequences of populist policies that began under the Chávez administration's Bolivarian Revolution, with the Brookings Institution stating that "Venezuela has really become the poster child for how the combination of corruption, economic mismanagement, and undemocratic governance can lead to widespread suffering".
On 2 June 2010, President Chávez declared an "economic war" because of the increasing shortages in Venezuela. The crisis intensified under the Maduro government, growing more severe as a result of low oil prices in early 2015, and a drop in oil production from lack of maintenance and investment. The government failed to cut spending in the face of falling oil revenues and has dealt with the crisis by denying its existence and violently repressing opposition. Political corruption, chronic shortages of food and medicine, closure of companies, unemployment, deterioration of productivity, authoritarianism, human rights violations, gross economic mismanagement and high dependence on oil have also contributed to the worsening crisis.
The contraction of national and per capita GDPs in Venezuela between 2013 and 2017 was more severe than that of the United States during the Great Depression, or of Russia, Cuba, and Albania following the collapse of the Soviet Union. In recent years, the annual inflation rate for consumer prices rose hundreds and thousands of percentage points while the economy contracted by nearly 20% annually.
The crisis has affected the life of the average Venezuelan on all levels. By 2017 hunger had escalated to the point where nearly 75% of the population had lost an average of over 8 kg (over 19 lbs) in weight, almost 90% of the population was living in poverty,and more than half did not have enough income to meet their basic food needs. From the beginning of the crisis to 2017, more than 2.3 million Venezuelans have left the country. Venezuela led the world in murder rates, with 90 per 100,000 people killed in 2015 (compared to 5.35 per 100,000 in the US or 1.68 per 100,000 in Canada) making it one of the most violent countries in the world.
I too consider the situation completely abhorrent and I will be glad to see Guaido come to power.
PS: I am a part of the far left(a anarcho-syndicalist/anarcho-communist). However! Maduro and Chavez do not, as right wingers would say, represent or constitute socialism (in reality their policies represent social democracy and even then it is a badly implemented and managed version seeing how countries like Norway, Sweden, Denmark and many others have implemented it to much better effect). Socialism's original and actual definition is a ideology where workers control and own the economy via workplace democracy, cooperatives, unions, factory committees, etc, with many ideologies being classified as socialist such as mutualism, market socialism, council communism, libertarian marxism(such as luxemburgism), and the ideologies I follow, anarcho-communism and anarcho-syndicalism(which have quite a bit of overlap). To conclude, the tyranny and larceny of the Venezuelan government does not represent the majority of left wing politics and ideals, and many like myself vehemently oppose it's authoritarian and corrupt ways.
PS: Many of the ideologies I have listed have worked( usually until crushed by external forces, not internal failure).Here is a list of defunct and current examples of communism, syndicalism, etc, working.
The Ukrainian Free Territory
The Oaxaca City
The Regional Defence Council Of Aragon
Fejuve(Federation of Neighborhood Councils-El Alto/Federación de Juntas Vecinales de El Alto)
MAREZ(Rebel Zapatista Autonomous Municipalities/Municipios Autónomos Rebeldes Zapatistas)
Rojava(Democratic Federation Of Northern Syria)
I have not listed every example, but I have listed a lot of the more prominent and larger examples. As well , many of these examples had or have very different systems and ideologies, usually to do with differing influences and the circumstances that these organizations arose from. I hope that you have read and hope that you may learn more about the philosophies and ideals that me and many others follow.
Also if you have any questions there are many websites, YouTube channels and books that explain many left wing principles, and hopefully dispel any doubts.
OK. I know that you've seen this post.
While I am disappointed that you have not replied, and that I have been unsuccessful in persuading you to look further into the many left wing ideologies and their achievements, you are the one who chooses your path in life, and if you choose to believe what you do now, I am fine with that.
Tomorrow, I shall leave for one of the many left-wing regions, reply or not.
Sincerely from a anonymous fellow human.
