On December 18th., the Venezuelan Supreme Court ruled that the intervention of the Metropolitan police was illegal and the police should be returned to its rightful authorities, the Mayor of the Metropolitan area of Caracas. The Court gave the Government fifteen days to do it. Well, today the Vice-Minister for citizen Security announced that the Government had decided to “reintervene” the motorized unit of the Metropolitan police. Thus I ask anybody, what would happen in any country of the world if a Supreme Court decision like this one was not followed by a Government? What is the name of a country where the Government does whatever it wants? I think it is evident, don’t you? It is certainly not a democracy……

My brother the Tyromaniac wrote this in response to the New York Times Editorial, The Power of the Priviliged, by so-called Law Professor (only Visiting…) Amy Chua, of Yale University whose research abilities leave a lot to be desired given what she wrote today, in which simply appears to be trying to fit our rebellion against the outlaw Government of Hugo Chavez into her theories of the world. I could not have said it better, least of all in such a short space:
It is dreadful that people like Prof. Amy Chua can’t get rid of their
own brand of prejudice. The current confrontation in Venezuela isn’t
white against black or poor against rich, but most of the population
against a corrupt and inefficient government that has broken its
promises and the law.
ChŠvez isn’t black, nor poor. He grew up middle class, but his current
clothes, watches and privileges indicate his lust for wealth. He
doesn’t care about the poor, only about himself.
According to the latest polls more that 70% of Venezuelans are against
ChŠvez. In a country with poverty reaching 68% of the population and
with a high percentage of mixed raced, this clearly indicate that a lot
of the poor and the “pardos” are against ChŠvez.
Failure to understand the process of civil rebellion we are living in
Venezuela by first world intellectuals, won’t prevent its extension to
other countries in the future.
