The media finds one or two mistakes or problems with the Venezuelan government, and uses it to discredit the Bolivarian revolution, and therefore, the possibility that other ways are possible. On the other hand, the 55% of Mumbai’s population living in slums, and the one billion people in the world living in slums and going without sufficient food, and so on, couldn’t possibly indicate that capitalism is the system that is failing."

Aside from the undoubted logistical complexity and scale of the crisis which is franly overwhelming, the also exists overwhelming evidence that the distribution of aid has been woefully coordinated. The manner of the United States intervention with respect to distribution in combination with the ineffectiveness of the UN has hinted at an underlying sinister agenda. Has a bureacratic red-tape inertia at the top effectively caused slow genocide here?
