 It looks like more trouble in paradise for the socialist utopia of Venezuela.

The list of issues includes food rationing and widespread starvation, skyrocketing unemployment, rampant crime and social unrest, political corruption and suppression of opposition parties, state-controlled media, hyperinflation, and gasoline shortages despite the country having the world’s largest oil reserves. All this is the legacy of the Hugo Chavez dictatorial regime, whose policies continue under President Nicolas Maduro. The anti-American Chavez nationalized most industries, with devastating consequences.

Many Venezuelan citizens looking for an exit strategy appear to be trapped inside the country, the Sovereign Man website explained in an on-the-ground report.

Nearly every major regional and international carrier has discontinued service to/from Caracas… Overall, Venezuela is being systematically cut off from the rest of the world… Foreign governments are starting to put up barriers to prevent Venezuelans from coming to their countries… Moreover, the visas are becoming harder to acquire…

This is a simple supply/demand issue. There are hardly any airlines flying out of Venezuela, and a whole ton of people who want to get out. So the price goes through the roof… 

For a place that used to be one of the wealthiest countries in the region, Venezuela is now completely destitute.

According to an airline expert, given that most air carriers are abandoning Venezuela because of the ongoing uncertainty, the country is reaching the point where it is almost “disconnected from the rest of the world” and being removed from the international travel map,  the London Telegraph reported.

United and Delta suspended flights to Venezuela earlier this year.

In July, the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory that warned U.S. citizens against visiting Venezuela and implemented security measures for U.S. government employees still there. In addition to the all the byproducts of economic and political anarchy, the State cautioned about the street crime epidemic, including murder, carjacking, kidnapping, and robbery.

Making matters worse, if that’s possible, Natural News reported earlier this year that Venezuela is experiencing a shortage of the materials needed to produce passports. Thousands of citizens have been waiting for months to obtain travel documents, which has given rise to black market bogus passports. The dictatorial government is also preventing dissidents and others from leaving the country.

To the surprise of no one, the limousine liberal cohort that dominates the U.S. mainstream media is downplaying the chaos in Venezuela. (Related: Read more about the situation in Venezuela at Collapse.news.)

“This means there are millions… and millions… of people trapped here. And they’re suffering immeasurably,” Sovereign Man added in its report about Venezuela’s increasing isolation.

While capitalism obviously has many flaws, particularly in connection with crony capitalism that was very much in play under the Obama administration, the Venezuelan model proves that socialism is no solution to society’s shortcomings, whether here or abroad. Many far-Left, redistributionist Democrats still don’t get it, however.

    Venezuela was a US client state as a military dictatorship from 1948 until 1958 and until the Chavez government in 1998 was a US proxy government operating under free trade capitalism. The Chavez regime was elected despite his being a former criminal who tried to overthrow the US proxy government. The only nationalisation of note was that of the oil industry, the country then as now survived on remittences and oil revenue (with not a little drugs money) propped up by a dollar based national debt which kept it a client state. It is still a democracy but a corrupt one and corrupt because of US intervention allied with an unrepayble debt as well as an inbility to move off the capitalist model to a state one after 17 years of one party rule, socialism in name only. The country is still capitalist but mostly crony capitalist. There is little more to say, the people there get to elect their government and chose vanilla natiionialist crony capitalism rather than US internationalist minty flavour and took their own welfare bribes which turned out to be loans now due. The bill for corrupt inept government is always collapse. El Presendente Chavez came with a nice presentation box, voice box script but socialism not included.
