Fron Venezuelanalysis.com

Notes:

  • YES Venezualanalysis.com is pro-Chavismo but so am I! The socialist movement in South America has done way more good than bad and is the only positive political-economic development on Earth for more than a decade (fact, though like any fact it should be debated so bring it on)
  • The journalistic and analytic work of Venezuelanalysis is top notch and well-respected by experts on both sides of the debate… well the honest ones at least.

But recent developments are putting the Internet’s decentralized architecture in danger.
