The misery continues for Venezuelans, as they suffer tremendously under the Bolivarian variation of socialism that was imposed on the country by Hugo Chavez. Rather than admit the failure of this system, which has brought the oil-rich nation to the brink of collapse, Chavez’s successor, Nicolas Maduro, is instead launching a war on what he claims is “anxiety.”

Of course people are going to be anxious when they live in a country ravaged by riots, malnutrition, starvation, vigilante lynchings involving petty thieves and food truck hijackings. However, the country apparently thinks it has some sort of image to maintain, so the National Superintendency of Fair Prices has decided to start fining bakeries for allowing lines to stretch outside their front doors. The body’s head, William Contreras, says that the lines are not related to an actual shortage of bread, but are instead some sort of political strategy aimed at generating anxiety.

In fact, he says that the raw materials to make bread are indeed available, completely ignoring the fact that bakeries do not actually have the means to process wheat and turn it into the flour that they need to bake the bread. This type of poor logic is constantly being used by the government to keep denying that the problems they are facing are a direct result of their disastrous socialist economic policy.
