The Black Book of ... ?

"18,000 children die every single day because of hunger and malnutrition". We await Harvard UP's solemn tome in response.

    Very funny. You've blogged on here in the past, particularly before and after his re-election about Hugo Chavez. What do you think to his increasingly authoritarian mode of governing, whereby he can now issue decrees on anything (including his own term of office), his intolerance of dissent and demands that workers take time off during the day to study his brand of socialism?

  2. Funny?

    As for the Venezuelans' overwhelming mandate for more socialism, I think criticism of it is suspiciously disproportionate.
