Bolivarianism in Venezuela


Venezuelans get political, economic and social benefits Americans can't imagine.

by Stephen Lendman

With or without Chavez, it's institutionalized. It greatly improved the lives of most Venezuelans. It's become part of the national culture. It won't wane and die.

It reflects Simon Bolivar's vision. He defeated the Spanish, liberated half of South America, and advocated using national wealth responsibly, fairly and equitably.

He strove to overcome what he called the imperial curse "to plague Latin America with misery in the name of liberty." 

Chavez is his modern-day incarnation. Chavismo reflects Bolivarian principles. He instituted them. They've become hardwired and institutionalized. Venezuelans won't tolerate returning to their ugly past. 

Why should they? Constitutional law mandates what Americans can't imagine.
