Socialist Regime in Venezuela Responds to Bread Shortage by Attacking Bakers

(Before It's News)

Venezuela is responding to severe food shortages just as you would expect of an authoritarian collectivism regime — by cracking down on people who produce food and seizing the means of production:

In a press release, the National Superintendent for the Defense of Socioeconomic Rights said it had charged four people and temporarily seized two bakeries as the socialist administration accused bakers of being part of a broad “economic war” aimed at destabilizing the country.

According to Juan Crespo, president of the Industrial Flour Union, the actual problem is that the government isn’t importing enough flour. No doubt the Maduro and his bureaucracy can fix this by issuing a decree that bread will henceforth be made without flour. That would be consistent with Maduro’s approach to the long lines of people waiting to buy bread:

[Last week] Maduro launched “Plan 700” against what he called a “bread war,” ordering officials to do spot checks of bakeries nationwide. In the plan, the government said it would not allow people to stand in line for bread but it’s unclear how it might enforce the order.

Machine guns could be employed to do away with bread lines. Venezuela is reaching that stage of socialism.

At least the authorities may have finally resolved the shortage of toilet paper. They had already tried confiscating stockpiles and then seizing control of toilet paper factories. Taking over bakeries may prove more effective regarding the T.P. shortage, because if you don’t have food, what do you need toilet paper for?

Maduro finally solves a problem.
