"Socialism has a consistent record. Being based on an intelligent man’s two-hundred-years-old erroneous –but at the time not illogical- perceptions and projections, it produces failure in the modern world. The resulting difference between the theory’s stipulations and merciless reality is overcome in two ways.

One is the retreat from fantasy into reality. For the fanatics attracted by creeds that promise to save mankind under their leadership, such a correction of dogmas is impossible. Therefore, what they are left with is to demand from those they had kidnapped, more present sacrifice for the sake of a glorious future. This makes Venezuela’s shot demonstrators are not an “accident”. Those that are awakened to resist, must be eliminated. Thereby the gap between the ideologically postulated “should be” and the existent “is” can be bridged. That is why shooting protesters is not an aberration but a logical, systemic consequence, supported by the testimony of precedents." --George Handlery
