Today I was reading an article called, in the argentinian edition, "Revolution in the Revolution", by Renaud Lambert, in Le Monde Diplomatique here's the english version.

The article is about the local councils the Bolivarian Revolution is setting up in order to control the bureaucracy. Since most bureaucrats are from the old venezuelan political parties, the local councils are directly elected between the neighbours. They propose new projects to improve the neighbourhood and control the performance of their congressmen and senators.

What do you say? It's a good way to avoid the bureaucracy becoming a fossil.

As far as this goes, this is the #1 element in a socialist society.
Venezuelans are very passionate people. I have seen videos of people meeting in these coucils. men and women alike touting the 'little blue book' which contains their new constitution. This can do nothing but help.

#1 bureaucracy is avoided.
#2 everyone is involved.
#3 unlike the sentiment in america, your civic obligations don't end at the voting booth...

people all feel that they contribute to the society.

As Hugo Chavez said, "this government isn't about chavez, it's about the people of venezuela."
