Go to the Tuol Sleng Museum in Phnom Penh. You won't go back.
With the continuing turmoil in the American election process, the ongoing suffering in Venezuela has fallen quite literally to the back page.
The food crisis brought about by socialism's distortion of how how capital is created and allocated has removed goods from the stores and brought the people into the streets demanding both food and new government. The latest edict, to call it a law is its own kind of travesty, should have been expected.
The nation's farmers won't grow food there is no expectation they will be paid for. Foreign suppliers won't sell it to the government because the currency is now completely worthless. So now the government has empowered itself to force the population into the agricultural fields for as long as it feels necessary.
What better way to remove the protesters from the streets and prevent them from voting in a referendum to remove the government. This exactly the same method used by the butcher Pol Pot in Cambodia. Sadly just as in Cambodia this will not be the final bloody chapter. Next will come "food triage" where only those seen as worthy supporters of the regime will get food. All the rest will either starve or be executed outright.
So far Obama, the UN and the world remains silent, as if daring history to repeat itself.
