Chavismo – critical but unconditional defence

Neoliberalism is a form of fascism

The public service has been made a mockery. Neoliberal ideology now competes with the laws of Parliament. The rule of law is compromised. Every part of the state has become subject to a totalitarian and nihilistic ideology, usurping even classical economics where work was an element of demand, to the extent there was respect for workers. Neoliberalism is a form of economism that strikes at every moment and every sector of our community. It is a form of extremism.
