“Venezuela has succumbed to an irreversible evil”

Diverse — Drokles on August 31, 2018 at 1:41 am

Men har længe kunnet læse om hvorledes dyrene sulter i de zoologiske haver indtil de bliver spist af lige så sultende borgere, folk, som Enhedslisten ’stærkt fordømmer’ og kalder “[T]he right wing opposition in Venezuela (…) dominated by extreme, fascist-like, tendencies” i dødelige kampe med sikkerhedsstyrker, der ikke går af vejen for at køre sine egne borgere over med pansrede køretøjer, drastiske stigninger i børnedødelighed og kvinder der dør i barselsengen, som sundhedsvæsenet bukker under, under manglen på alt, forretninger der plyndres for resterne, børn der dør af sult - hvilket er bagernes skyldfiskere der bliver piraterhyperinflation.  Alt dette er “systematic distortions of the events in the international press” - ifølge Enhedslisten.

Daniel Pipes skriver i Wall Street Journal at især politikere (og akademikere generelt må jeg tilføje) er til fals for fikse ideer

As John Maynard Keynes put it, “Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back. . . . It is ideas, not vested interests, which are dangerous for good or evil.”

The story of Venezuela makes this point with singular clarity. In 1914 the discovery of oil brought the country vast revenues and produced a relatively free economy. By 1950 Venezuela enjoyed the fourth-highest per capita income in the world, behind only the U.S., Switzerland and New Zealand. As late as 1980, it boasted the world’s fastest-growingeconomy in the 20th century. In 2001 Venezuela still ranked as Latin America’s wealthiest country.

Venezuela’s troubles, however, had begun long before. Starting around 1958, government interference in the economy, including price and exchange controls, higher taxes, and restrictions on property rights, led to decades of stagnation, with per capita real income declining 0.13% from 1960-97. Still, it remained a normal, functioning country.

det-socialistiske-eksperiment

“The problem of Venezuela is no longer one of internal politics. It is a threat to the harmony of the whole continent” siger Brasiliens præsident Michel Temer, som begrundelse for, at Brasilien nu har sat deres væbnede styrker ind mod grænsen til det socialistiske eksperiment. Og det er noget af et eksperiment, med historien og bagklogskabens klare lys at opløse en førende oliestats økonomi på et par årtier. Fra Chaves tog magten i 1998 begyndte hans regime af ligesindede at plyndre landet sideløbende med ødelæggende socialistiske programmer. En failed state indrømmede selv The New Yorker.

En journalist og en fotograf fra Reuters tog sidste år på en bustur gennem landet for at bese elendighederne, der nu kun er blevet værre. Og Amy Horowitz leverede en stemningsbeskrivelse som modpol til socialistisk drømmende amerikanske vælgere
