While Government Finances Chavez’ Campaign, Opposition Figures Accounts Are Investigated

June 15, 2012

In the Hugo Chavez Autocracy fairness and honesty are not important when dealing with electoral matters. While La Patilla published a document showing how Ministries financed and mobilized the people to go to Chavez’ rally on Monday, the bank Superintendent asked all financial institutions to provide him with the details of all fund movements in the bank accounts for opposition figures such as Gerardo Blyde, Leopoldo Lopez, Stalin Gonzalez and Delsa Solorzano.

Thus, while Chavez finances his campaign in full violation of the law, in a manner that is punished with jail, the Superintendent of Banks goes fishing to see if any irrelevant amount of money is flowing to Capriles’ campaign via opposition leaders. This limits campaign contributions, as donors are afraid of being harrased for contributing to Capriles’ campaign, while all of the Government’s resources are at the service of Chavez’ efforts in blatant violation of the law.

Such are the unfair and unethical ways of the revolution.

    “The Scorpion and the Frog is a fable about a scorpion asking a frog to carry him across a river. The frog is afraid of being stung during the trip, but the scorpion argues that if it stung the frog, the frog would sink and the scorpion would drown. The frog agrees and begins carrying the scorpion, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both. When asked why, the scorpion points out that this is its nature. The fable is used to illustrate the position that the behaviour of some creatures is irrepressible, no matter how they are treated and no matter what the consequences.”

    I think maybe the reason Venezuelans do not react anymore-they expect these things from Chavez-and chavistas-it’s his nature.

      I have always liked that fable. Another way of putting it is, “Never appeal to a man’s ‘better nature’. He may not have have one.”

    Lenin – ‘In what sense do we reject ethics, reject morality?
    In the sense given to it by the bourgeoisie,
    who based ethics on God’s commandments.

    Today the morally right action
    is the one necessary
    to attain the victory
    of the proletariat
    over the bourgeoisie.

    End justifies the means.

    Lenin – “Even if for every hundred correct things
    we committed 10,000 mistakes,
    our revolution would still be –
    and it will be
    in the judgment of history –
    great and invincible. . . .”

    You are most welcome to fill in
    the rest of the bla-bla,
    and feel morally outraged.
