#2 Oh, I'll bet he does. It seems the first act of EVERY shiny new Commie Dictator is "Land Reform". I hope that the regular Venzuelans are basically self-subsistent. The Land Reform Thingy has a rather poor history of working out, especially the agricultural aspects.

#8 Do these commies get together at their own Summits, Chaired by Mugabe and Nujomo and discuss the best ways to starve their people. Dirt is only worth dirt if you can't grow anything on it. Ask Mengistu or Siad Barre.

#12 Actually land reform CAN work out, when its done by non-commies. Taiwan had land reform in the 1950's, and IIUC it contributed to their later economic success. See when non-commmies do it, they realize A. You need to transfer the land from big land holders to small ones, NOT to communes. B. The small landholders cant be TOO small, to have viable farms, and they need to have capital assets. C. You cant just hand it out to political pals, like in ZimBOBwe.

#13 "This land is my land, that land is my land, from the southern border to the northern border. This land is made for me and me."
