Judged by the the red avalanche of potential voters for Chavez, by the more than two million people that filled the streets of Caracas on February 12, it should be no problem for the 'Yes' (the Sí) to accomplish a landslide victory. Even the 'opposition' finds permanent 'reelection', as they call it, not such a bad thing after all. In fact, in Caracas President Chavez in all probability mobilized more fans than President Obama during his latest 'coronation' in Washington DC. .
However, like its neighbor, Guyana, Venezuela is not only the land of many waters, a small Venice, it is also a land of many contradictions, of troublesome 'miracles'. Like Houdini sometimes three million 'socialist' voters just vanish into thin imperialist air. One thing is definite, revolution is in the global air, also the love of Chavez for the poor, and vice versa. That many around Chavez do not perform their sacred duties is another story. But, Zulia, the strongest bastion of the 'opposition', with nearly two million voters could turn the tables.
Nonetheless, like I explained in a previous article, if we do nothing, we could end up with world fascism, if we launch a classical workers revolution, the result could be similar. Socialism cannot be constructed on an infested, radio-active debris, on destroyed international flotsam and jetsam, on Falujah or Gaza.
Whether the Yes or No wins or fails on Sunday, in any case we will be in the same trouble. Unless we win with at least a million votes ahead of the No votes, the 'opposition' is already sowing wind, about the coming military storm President Chavez warned a few days ago.
Globalization is pregnant with labor pain, with human abortion, with Thanatos, with death.
The only question is whether this world revolution will end up in 'Yes', in 'socialism', or in 'No', in 'barbarism'.
The global permanent revolutionary waves strike on the coasts of Venezuela, with their clarion call: Yes to logical, scientific, philosophic Socialism!
In reality it is not Chavez as a person, as an individual, whom corporate America and the mafias in Russia fear. It is the Bolivarian Revolution which could overflow into scientific, philosophic socialism, and further towards a still possible human emancipation.
In his speech at the opening ceremony of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has warned the USA to learn from Russian history of the last century, that is, the White House should not exercise "excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state's omnipotence".
