Marx believed that the transition from freedom to communism occurs in historically inevitable stages. Like Russia, China, Cambodia, and many other countries have before, Venezuela could be reaching the mass grave stage:
The number of bodies found in a mass grave in Venezuela’s largest prison has risen to 14, the public prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
The General Penitentiary of Venezuela in central Guarico state was closed in October after violent clashes between inmates. …
Forensic experts are continuing with their search and have not ruled out finding more bodies buried on the prison grounds.
Maduro and the rest of Hugo Chavez’s successors will never reach the stratospheric body counts run up by Stalin and Mao. But Pol Pot’s total is conceivably attainable.
