While Venezuela does not share out oil revenues directly to its citizens it is doomed to fail, over and over again.

Sir, I refer to your “Venezuela’s threatened December election” November 19.

You write: “Chavismo once saw itself as a global revolutionary force.” Absolutely but there were way too many around the world that supported that view.

You write: “Today, incompetence and corruption have revealed it to be merely a cynical charade.” Absolutely, but it is also a cynical charade to believe that a country, in which its government receives 97 percent of all abundant exports will not, sooner or later, embrace incompetence and corruption.
