Socialism follows historical pattern in Venezuela

Venezuela's Maduro decried as 'dictator' after Congress annulled

"Opposition leaders branded Venezuela's socialist President Nicolas Maduro a "dictator" on Thursday after the Supreme Court took over the functions of Congress and pushed a lengthy political standoff to new heights."

This post has a couple problems as a news posting.

1. The title reflect a particular opinion of the poster on socialism, which appears to be that socialism in Latin America is the "historical pattern" rather than, say, socialism in Europe. Or socialism in California, for that matter.

In the News forum, a more factual title, representing specific events, is needed.

(I've been called on this, myself. It's not uncommon in this forum.)

2. Also, "historical pattern" is not actually defined, so we are left to guess as to what aspects of Venezuelan socialism constitute the pattern.

Please, can you fix this, so I don't have to move it to Odds and Ends?

Glad you got there first, BiV. It wasn't socialism that led to dictatorship in Chile in 1973.
