Venezuela Declares Another Emergency: It Has Run Out of Food


Does anyone have more information on this? I'm hearing they are out of food, rationing electricity, arresting preppers and seizing stored food and farmers' crops. For a glimpse at what nwo world will look like, see Venezuela, ( if you can find any info on it, since their media seems to be squelched.)

Praying people: pray for Venezuela, please

Atheists & agnostics: raise awareness, please

Thank you.

Venezuela is yet another cautionary tale of the dangers of trying to micromanage a complex system.  Central planners always have less information than the system itself encapsulates.  But somehow the central planners generally do well for themselves.  The rulers of Venezuela manage to get along just fine.

Government is not the problem.  Neither is it the solution.  It simply is.  Government is necessary.  Governments and markets need each other to exist.

We see this in the movie "Cidade de Deus".  We also see it in the HBO series "Deadwood".  Governments and markets spontaneously arise together.  Gangsters and protection rackets become government.  In protecting turf, the people flourish.

The key is to find the golden mean.  The middle way.  Do not kill the goose that lays the golden egg.  Do not kill the host.  Rather, love it and encourage it to grow.

Centrally planned micromanaged government requires omniscience.  It requires Total Information Awareness.  It requires an all-seeing eye.  But this is impossible.  Even the all-seeing eye of Horus (or Sauron) can only see what the LORD allows it to see.

What good government requires is a modicum of restraint.  It requires the wisdom to know that it does not know everything.  It requires a degree of benevolence.  Good government is really not that difficult to accomplish.

The United States, for all its flaws, had remarkably good government and historically unprecedented growth and prosperity for 200 years.  It followed just a few simple maxims.  All that is needed is to go back to basics.

Through God we shall do valiantly: for He it is that shall tread down our enemies.
