VNews has an article of last Monday at http://www.vheadline.com/readnews.asp?id=35312.  It begins:

   "Let me begin by stressing that I believe wholeheartedly in President  Chavez and his Revolution ... but. I fear that by his invocation of Marxism -- and by the occasional Marxist flavored comments which have occasionally been made in this journal -- a great historical chance is being jeopardized ... the chance to create a new kind of post Marxist socialism, one based on decentralization, worker's cooperatives, and a truly moral and spiritual, as opposed to coldly rationalist, historical materialist, road to social justice."

Afterwards there is no evidence offered that Chavez invokes Marxism.  Do you know if he has and what he said?
