NACLA on the Chavistas' big win

This thorough and insightful analysis of the Chavista victory in Venezuela is one more reason NACLA is such an indispensable source for understanding US-Latin American affairs. Chavez is not Jesus Christ, any more than FDR was in the US (not that it's the same - Chavez is better). But his presidency can be an important part of ordinary people building a society that's better for them and theirs. We could learn a lot from their struggles.
