Let's start by saying that the work is going to be epic. Not because Hugo Chavez left a body of work worth analyzing but because he did not leave anything written except for a few newspaper columns and some letters. What Chavez is leaving are hours and hours and yet more hours of rants. Though "rant" is not a good description of Chavez speeches, the French "déblatérer" would be better, describing abundant and violent speech against something. But I digress.
Yet, the thousand of hours of Chavez speeches are not necessarily the main hurdle for the august work of such a novel institute. First, the profound thinkers that are to study Chavez opus will have to sift through insults, vulgarity and parables to find some substance. And yet, it is not going to be all. Across his entire career Chavez has contradicted himself constantly though admittedly after 2006 he took a more steady course towards a communist approach more in accordance with the way he gave up the country to the Cuban overlords.
And last but not least, it is important to note that Chavez's personal lifestyle, as well as the one of his family, most of the time did not agree with his official positions. So, where is the real Hugo Chavez?

Still, let's be optimistic and hope that such an advanced institute may finally shine some light on the tortuous and vile mind of Chavez.
And you thought we could not go any lower.....
