An Even Uglier View of Socialism in Venezuela

On the outside, end-stage socialism shows us hungry people desperately digging through garbage for something to eat. Hidden from sight are even darker scenes:

Francisco Márquez, a dual U.S. citizen … is one of dozens of opposition activists, former governors and lawmakers who have languished in Venezuelan jails — and one of the lucky few to be released. …

He said the hardest thing for him was the torture he had to witness. “The screams and the sound of the beatings, the broken ribs,” he said. …

Márquez said that during his incarceration he was appalled not only by the fact that inmates don’t get a chance of a fair trial, but the absolute power the intelligence agency known as Sebin holds in deciding who stays and who goes.

One who is apparently not going anywhere is a young man from Utah named Joshua Holt, who has been imprisoned in Venezuela since June 30 on weapons charges. Holt and his Venezuelan wife Thamara Caleno Candelo (also arrested) say the weapons were planted. Big Government having slipped all bounds in Venezuela, there is no way to know whether they are innocent or when they will be released.

    Too bad for the Holts.
    This should be a cautionary tale to anyone thinking of visiting their home country when it has turned socialist. Stay away.
