Socialism always has failed. With Starvation, Civil War (or Revolution) seems the only remedy here. m/r
"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."


Blood splattered on walls and MPs injured as rioters storm parliament leaving Venezuela on the brink of civil war

Clashes erupted during a session to mark Venezuela's Independence Day

Blood was seen spattered on the walls after supporters of President Nicolas Maduro burst into parliament while opposition politicians were holding a session to mark Independence Day.

Brandishing sticks and dressed in red, the activists set off fireworks in the capitol building in Caracas, unleashing chaos, AFP reported.
Shocking images show the walls dripping in blood and two opposition politicians with blood running down their faces.
Various small explosions were heard, possibly from fireworks thrown into the legislative compound, witnesses said.

The country has been struggling with a deepening economic crisis and has seen sometimes violent street protests demanding a change of government.
