Jerry, I am not suggesting that violence in Venezuela is per se a consequence of the road to socialism. After 10 years of Chavismo this is not more than the consequence of the incompetence of Chávez and his government.   Nevertheless, I doubt about the Cuban harmony. Its apparent peaceful streets must be a consequence of the police-minded regulation of almost any circulation goods, including weapons. I mean, that regulation is necessary, but a democratic rule of law forbids a police like regulation of human lives.   Regards,A.

It is  less dangerous, according to the report, than North America.  The morale of the report for Venezuela might be to follow the Cuba Road.   In solidarity, Jerry
