Chavez does seem to have retained some loyalty to the poor. That is better than the Right in the USA – who have contempt for at least 47% of its citizens.
With that said, Chavez has demonstrated that he’s been evolving into a totalitarian dictator with unquestioned authority. Like many revolutionaries who begin with justified overthrow of corrupt regimes, Chavez has become that which he once despised.
And like most dictators who will not share power, Chavez’ passing will leave his country in confusion and turmoil.
