Thanks for adding to what I know of this situation. It is not an area that I know much about other than in the context of planetary affairs. As is usually the case, the more I learn the more complicated it becomes.

This is going to take some strong popular action to restore the Bolivarian Revolution that did have great potential from what I can understand of it. The larger issue of a collapsing neoliberal economy and the rapid shifts in the forces of the old struggling to retain control works to turn all of us into pawns for their games. But the rules are changing quickly and that is adding to their panic. We need calm and rational work to find specific solutions for area in trouble but that is not what we are going to get.

This is not going to be easy and mistakes are going to lead to increased suffering for many people. It is simply the wrong people in control now and that must change. How that is accomplished needs millions of people working together. We have the technology to do that if we can just break out of the old patterns self destruction.
