News today shows that Chavez is on his way back to Cuba to have more surgery.
Once again, the Fates are cruel. Chavez is one of the world’s most admired leaders (not of course by the Americans and Europeans) because he cares about the poor and he is generous towards them. Chavez hates the capitalist, dog-eat-dog system which, across the world, results in a few individuals accumulating most of the wealth while many starve.
He hates nations like America who use their huge army to attack and occupy other nations and steal their resources and impose dysfunctional puppet governments. He hates Corporations which go into poor nations and exploit their resources and cheap labor.
In other words, Chavez is a sworn enemy of the West and he despises everything they stand for: greed, exploitation, inequality, imperialism, dishonesty, etc.
Why the Fates have determined that this man will be struck down by this cursed disease, I don’t know. There are so many disgusting leaders in the world which, if they died, there would be rejoicing. Unfortunately, these despots and villains seem to live forever while the good die young.
We can only hope that Chavez is treated successfully even if his condition does seem to be rather dire. He is rallying the South American nations and helping them to survive the ever-circling imperial influence of Washington and its cabal of Rapacious Corporations.
I’m sure all the people on this Forum will join with me in sending best wishes to President Chavez for his quick recovery.
May he live forever!
