Ok …am having to do a post on this as my site seems to be sticking and blocking again and am struggling to ‘reply’
SO ….these are my own thoughts written in my own way …I accept I am not particularly ‘educated’ ….no in depth analysis …my god I can barely spell BUT in short …
It’s a case of FULL societal collapse!!!
Due to hyperinflation ….false economy ……and corruption
‘Oh ….that’s ok then ‘ ….I hear you cry ….’Those bloody commie Latin American countries ….they’re bloody clueless ….it’s to be expected’
WELL folks ….we ALL know the battle between socialism and capitalism that dogged the last century and how Latin America was well and truly shafted by the US …..one could even argue that the pull out of countries (largely the US) trading in recent years ….causing a collapse in export of goods IS the primary cause …..I mean to say it’s interesting how well some of these countries seemed to be doing …pulling themselves out of the mire a few years ago …I mean look at Brazil under President DeSilva a man of integrity and passion and YES a socialist ….but ANYWAY I digress
BUT ….lets just focus on Venuzuela for now ….SO …with this sudden inability to export …it comes to light that the government and banks have been massaging the figures ….making it up ….corruption ….the banks crash …..ring any bells?
Yep it could happen here too …it could happen ANYWHERE …even the mighty US ….BECAUSE it’s just a house of cards ….the whole ‘monetary system’ is just a house of cards ….banks and trading is just figures ….numbers ….who sets the ‘value’? …..and how is Veuzuala dealing with this? …..WELL it seems to me that President Mudro is racing around going lets put this …this ….and THIS under government control and we’ll charge a FORTUNE for it to shore up our monetry system …..it seems that he and his ilk don’t give a shit about ordinary people unless they are OK …..ring any bells again? ….or is he HAVING to do this in some kind of panic to shore things up ….who owns the banks ANYWAY?
But regardless ….They’ve brought in the military ….there’s a TOTAL clamp down on any form of discontent ….folk are being rounded up and thrown into jail left, right and centre ….University students who have lost their means of education attempted a protest but were silenced and there is now a TOTAL communication embargo ….no journalists allowed in or out ….no one allowed to use the Internet ….no one able to leave the country ….no imports or exports ….no food …..and because of increased scarcity of the essentials …a further increase of crime and corruption ….TOTAL MELTDOWN!!!
It is very …VERY sad!
This was the country a few years ago that was taking the ‘classical music’ scene by storm with its El Systema youth music scheme ….EXPLODING onto the world stage with their energy and passion
I would imagine it’s VERY hard to hold onto the music when you have no food and water but I hope they can somehow
It breaks my heart …but then again I am ridiculous ….it’s pointless having heartbreak for something you can do nothing about
One thing I DO believe tho …is that the world is crying out for a new way of doing things …there IS enough to go around if we think Globally …..we have to think of it as a big blue ball which is EVERYONES responsibility …..the only hope I hang onto is that a lot of the worlds ‘educated’ young people KNOW that ….there’s some VERY savvy kids out there …AND in MOST cases they have access to the Internet …can learn from each other and what’s going on in the world …AND I am pretty sure that they know …to quote one of my favorite women whose life was cut tragically short right here recently ‘We have more in common than that which divides us’
And so endeth my righteous rant
Any comments or opinions more than welcome
I would LOVE one from someone in Venuzuela but somehow I doubt very much that will happen:(
