Latin America grows, Venezuela sinks

I am not the one saying it, it is the New York Times under the pen of Simon Romero.  The fact of the matter is that under any angle you try to look at it, Venezuela is sinking fast, with no hope of any significant recovery any time soon.  And even the so much vaunted dubious health results are brought into question as numerous epidemics haunt us, from Dengue to Malaria to a slight tendency in an increase in childbirth death (heard on Union Radio this morning).  Never mind our crime rate country wide whose numbers can only compare with the local Northern Mexico rates under drug traffic effect.

Chavismo has been a catastrophic failure and yet too many people still do not see it.  How come?

    There is no worst blind that the ones that do not want to see... (no hay peor ciego que el que no quiere ver)

  2. I guess each has his own theory.My theory is self- absorption.Many people simply refuse to see the overall picture and concentrate only on their own small lives.They get used to their little lives, live in their little bubbles, and concern themselves NOT with reality.

  3. Death by a thousand cuts is more like it.
