The divide between rich and poor in our world has perhaps never been as wide and as visible as it is today. The world elite are making more money than ever, and as they’re buying more ridiculous and more lavish toys than ever, the rest of the world is already feeling the pinch of a manipulated global economy in decline.
The nightmare of bad government has always been felt most severely by those who do not belong to the ruling elite or the protected upper classes of society, and recently, events in Venezuela serve as yet another example of how socialist governments can ruin once thriving national economies by sanctioned corruption. Now it is becoming evident that even in the Venezuela capital, Caracas, breadlines and hunger pangs are only for certain classes of citizens.
Most of the press coverage of the ongoing economic and political crisis in Venezuela have shows the struggles that many are facing in Caracas, where electricity and even food are being rationed by the government and the currency is undergoing extreme inflation. This is undoubtedly causing serious civil unrest, and the nation is drifting ever more closely to civil war as public calls for the ouster of unelected socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro escalate.
