As every country that has tried it knows, not only is socialism immoral and inherently tyrannical, it does not work. Ask Venezuelans, half of whom are ready toabandon their own country. Under end stage socialism,food is scarce:
There are dire reports of people waiting in supermarket lines all day, only to discover that expected food deliveries never arrived and the shelves are empty.
There are horrific tales of desperate people slaughtering zoo animals to provide their only meal of the day. Even household pets are targeted as a much-needed source for food.
President Maduro is doubling down on the proven failed policies and philosophies of “Bolivarian Socialism,” while diverting attention away from the crisis — pointing fingers at so-called “enemies” of Venezuela such as the United States, Saudi Arabia and others.
A dozen eggs was last reported to cost $150, and the International Monetary Fund predicts that inflation in Venezuela will hit 720% this year.
