After Juan Guaidó’s fumbling coup attempt in Venezuela, it appears advocates of regime change have fallen flat on their faces. But anti-imperialist mobilization is still as necessary as ever.
The flaw in the faux socialism of much current social democratic thinking become evident in the inability to support, or at least try to understand, the actual socialist experiment in Venezuela. This crippling error will in the end vitiate all claims for socialism by these followers of Sanders…
This does real damage to AOC’s ‘socialist’ bent…and to he left supporters.
We can sense at the way radical thinking gets smothered by proximity to the realm of political power
It is hard to determine the real facts on the ground in Venezuela but one thing clear: an absurd figure like Guaido could never have any legal foundation if he did gain power. As the most ridiculous figure of a plant/stooge his position is laughable and could never achieve any legitimacy beyond that of fascist caudillo. The ridiculous pouting of slogans of democracy is self-parody and a mockery of constitutional legitimacy. The US has goofed repeatedly since the beginning of the year, and seems to be staging an unintended expose of its imperialist stupidity. This takeover could finally succeed, at the price of the final eclipse of US pretenses toward democratic (read neo-liberal) refoundation.
Donald Trump imagines Juan Guaidó is the rightful president of Venezuela. Mr. Guaidó, a man of impeccable illegitimacy, was exposed by Cohen and Blumenthal as “a product of a decade-long project overseen by Washington’s elite regime change trainers.” Argentinian sociologist Marco Teruggi described Guaidó in the same article as “a character that has been created for this circumstance” of regime change.
