Venezuelan government now enslaves subjects to work on farms


Socialism is a curse that people should wish on their enemies.

When hardline socialists won control of Venezuela 15 years ago, socialists and government trusters worldwide cheered. Professors and their grad students across the western world announced the success of “third way” politics: a fusion of private industry under the control and central planning of government officials.

Now Venezuelans die in the streets fighting over pennies. Venezuelans boldly loot stores loudly daring cops and soldiers to shoot them.

The latest: the Venezeulan government has now declared the people to be slaves. A decree requiring Venezuelans to work on farms for free was issued last week. See here.
