I live in North America. The thing that makes me most queasy is not that RCTV has been shut down, its that the majority of Venezuelans seem to support the end of their democracy.

The reason we are so queasy is that we've seen this happen before in the 1930's, in Germany. Lookup the Weimar Republic (specifically its demise) to see that Nazi Germany was born out of the EXACT SAME processes in which Hugo's 21st Century Venezuela is taking place.

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.
