Running out of steam...

    It's quite hard to keep blogging the bolivarian revolution. I started doing it in Nov 2002 and quite frankly I am getting increasingly frustrated by the lack of cohesion of the opposition movement as a whole; I see them as nothing more than a bunch of opportunists trying desperately to keep their parcels. They've got no soul nor do they seem to care about the future or the country. The political discourse in Venezuela is totally void of proposals, Chavez dictates the actions and everyone reacts and repeats his bullshit. Chavismo has become the dominant force in Venezuela through vote tampering that wasn't acted upon when due. Jimmy Carter, Cesar Gaviria, Jennifer McCoy... they all contributed to the assassination of our fragile and incipient democracy without hesitations or remorse. On the other hand being an activist against the president of the fifth largest oil producer in the world is not an easy task, one gets the cold shoulder from everyone everywhere for the prospects of profiting from the revolution is just such an attractive idea. Hence, is it of any value to continue denouncing and shedding light upon issues that no one seems to care about? At this point I don't know...
