I have always kind of liked Hugo Chavez, and the Bolivarian Revolution in Venzuela, this article by David Sugar made it easier to do so. Some of the claims paint a much rosier picture than the wiki article, or the clearly biased Dictator of the Month article. However his revelation that hackers saved the Venezuelan economy is certainly an interesting one.
Excerpt:”When the rich of Venezuela ponder who it was that made Venezuela become a revolutionary nation, they shouldn’t look at President Chavez, who may not have even been thinking of this at the time, and certainly had no means to accomplish it if he had; instead, they should look in the mirror.
Do I get to be on a watch list for this?
