Hugo Chavez won the presidency of Venezuela in December of 1998 with a socialist message. He promised the citizens new hope for the new millennium.
Now, 20 years later the country is suffering a humanitarian crisis. With the highest murder rates in the world and 90 percent of the people living below the poverty line.
Is this what equality looks like? And why does Bernie Sanders sound just like Hugo Chavez ?
Here is a collection of quotes from the messengers themselves.
The only way to save the world is through socialism, but a socialism that exists within a democracy; there's no dictatorship here. - Hugo Chavez
To me, democratic socialism means democracy. It means creating a government that represents all of us, not just the wealthiest people in the country. - Bernie Sanders
I am convinced that the path to a new, better and possible world is not capitalism, the path is socialism. - Hugo Chavez
I am a socialist; of course I am a socialist. To hold a vision that society can be fundamentally different, to believe that all people can be equal - that is not a new idea. - Bernie Sanders
Privatization is a neoliberal and Imperialist plan. Healthcare can’t be privatized because it’s a fundamental human right. Nor can education , water , electricity and other public services. They can’t be surrendered to private capital that denies the people from their rights? - Hugo Chavez
When I talk about democratic socialist, I am talking about Medicare, a single payer health care system for the elderly. And in my view, we should expand that concept to all people. I believe that everybody in this country should be entitled to health care as a right. - Bernie Sanders
