Venezuela is changing history? Why?, cause behind Hugo Chavez there are people, workers demands not capitalists interests. Before Hugo Chavez, Venezuela suffered a heavy employing rate, low salaries, analfabetism, no healthcare for people... but! They were one of the bigger petrol productors!! In Venezuela before Chavez there was a lot of murderer, sindicalists, left politics, universitary students... then lot of people came to the forest, to the guerrilla... all those years of continues fights of a people make born a Hugo Chavez, all that was all time a "CLASS WAR", worker class against capitalists class, poor against rich. Then, now, Chavez is giving the capital to the poorest people, giving universal healthcare (mission barrio adentro), free education to all levels (yes university too), alphabetize all population (mission sucre) workers rights, 7% employing, free homes (more than 220.000 homes in last 2 years, mission vivienda venezuela), is logical that a dictatorship give education to his people? The culture liberate people, in fact is western who is trying that worker class have no education. Hugo Chavez create "missions" that are hugo programs for help people, cause the bureaucracy machinery is corrupt, then he create parallel structure for jump on bureaucracy.

We must learn a thing at least. The history of humanity is the history of the class war. (Marxs)

Ok I'm drunk. Don't cry for me Venezuela. But I've been to South America so I can say what ever I want.

You know, OWS should be seeing the alternative history that the Long Hairs will be passing around at the universities in the USA.

There are two Sides:

1) Side one, the US says there is corruption, Hugo is a dictator, there is increased Crime, voter fraud, there is violence and it is all because the economy is going into the tank. The US wants you to think that Venezuela, Ecuador, Argentina, and Brazil are "Tanking" because they have communist, socialist, or dicatators who rule them.

2) Side two. Everything is better. Look it up. Do the Research.

The tide turned long ago in the south of America.

The looting of Venezeula will be remembered.

With direction, and leadership, the people will dominate discourse and policy.

I don't know. What do you expect us to learn from it?
