Chavez was a good example of the tyranny of good intentions, I think he actually did want to help people, yet he did it through stealing stuff and "nationalizing" industries (stealing more stuff), the country was ruined under his rulership with 30% inflation year over year, food prices skyrocketing and going to rot en masse in government warehouses. Contrast his good intentions with the evil intentions of Chile's Pinochet, the murderous dictator who embraced semi-free markets in order to enrich himself and get more tax revenue, the country is doing great, relatively speaking, despite his intentions being evil. - ChrisCARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- President Hugo Chavez was a former paratroop commander and self-styled "subversive" who waged continual battle for his socialist ideals. He bedeviled the United States and outsmarted his rivals time and again, while using Venezuela's vast oil wealth to his political advantage.
