Chavez recently yanked the broadcast license of a large and popular Venezuelan TV station that has been critical of him.
And he has been working overtime to inculcate his “socialist” ideas in schools and universities. A few months ago hundreds of his high-ranking supporters underwent training through classes in socialist thinking and “Marxist Analysis” as part of what he calls the Bolivarian Revolution.
All of this is tied to Hugo Chavez’ widely government-touted cult of personality.
It all sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Hoxa, Castro – Chavez, all part of a continuum.
