Chavez: Visionary Leader Extraordinaire 

by Stephen Lendman

He and Castro matter most. They don't come any better. They transformed their countries responsibly. Doing so made the impossible possible. They did it against long odds. They won over hearts and minds.

Castro did it his way. Chavez chose a Venezuelan model. He envisioned socialism for the 21st century. He wanted it based on "solidarity, fraternity, love, justice, liberty and equality." 

He wanted it built bottom up. He deplored top down. Popular protagonism over bureaucracy was policy.

He abhorred neoliberal harshness. He called it incompatible with democracy. He wanted another way. His legacy reflects his accomplishments.

Eva Golinger knew Chavez. She called him a "grandiose visionary" "dream maker."

Venezuelans loved him. So did millions worldwide. They did so for good reason. He cared. He made a difference. His achievements are remarkable. They can't be ignored.
