…completing the revolution…//The problem with Venezuela’s revolution is that it didn’t go far enough | The Independent

August 12th, 2017 · No Comments

Zizek asks a reasonable question, whatever the merits of his larger analysis, but at this point it might help to suggest simply doing now what has been left undone: completing the revolution…

However, even if it is true that the economic catastrophe in Venezuela is to a large extent the result of the conjoined action of Venezuelan big capital and US interventions, and that the core of the opposition to the Maduro regime are the far-right corporations and not the popular democratic forces, this insight raises further questions. In view of these reproaches, why was there no Venezuelan left to provide an authentic radical alternative to Chavez and Maduro? Why was the initiative in the opposition to Chavez left to the extreme right which triumphantly hegemonised the oppositional struggle, imposing itself as the voice of the ordinary people who suffer the consequences of the Chavista mismanagement of economy?
