Socialism Is Love

Some say Chavez embraces Castroism, I would contend that it is Gueveraism. Che Guevera, paraphrased by Hugo Chavez.

"Long live the socialist revolution! Destiny has been written," Chávez told supporters Sunday night. "No one should fear socialism; socialism is human. Socialism is love."

At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality.Che Guevera

But then again Chavez is catholic in his beliefs.

Socialism is solidarty, mutual aid, hence love in action, that same Agape that Gnostic heretics applied humanistically during the Third Revolution commonly known as the Reformation.

I back Chavez, because Venezuela wants Chavez.

The US should just back the hell off. They've brought enough misery to the region.

I think Chavez fits in well with Social Catholicism, as you imply. He is certainly no Castroist, that is just Gringo propaganda. His views are really Latin American left populism, the thing that has always threatened Gringo interests. Stalinism other than Castro's Cuba has always been a minor force in Latin America, in spite of the propaganda.
