"Socialism only works until you run out of other peoples money" Author Unknown. As Venezuela has a lot of oil, socialism can exist for a substantial period of time. However, their are always a few wingnuts, who want to go it alone and don't want some bureaucrat telling them how to do it. These of course must be silenced in anyway possible. Therefor you must shut down or regulate all private enterprise for the good of the people. While Chavez came to power trying to wrest control from the "white Hispanics" and give it to the aboriginals, it hasn't turned out that way. Peron, Castro and Guevara don't fall into this category, as they were/are white hispanic, even though they all ostensibly were trying to "level" the playing field. Bolivar, of course also tried with some success. Of all of them, I think Bolivar had the best motives, the others just rapists and plunderers.
