Revolutions, imperfect social and economic events led by imperfect people.
Venezuela’s revolution and the deceased Hugo Chavez fit the bill.
I detest Venezuela’s crime rate and violent jails.
But I recall a former student, an upper middle-class Venezuelan woman, who had a telling reply when I asked her why she hated Chavez.
“It’s because after the revolution you would see people in restaurants, dark people, who would have never been there before.”
I had my answer.
