Chávez’s Daughter Is Filthy Rich, and That Shouldn’t Be a Surprise

In Hugo Chávez’s socialist utopia of Venezuela, the people are supposed to be equal in both opportunities and outcome. Of course, as anyone who understands socialism in action knows, the connected are more equal than others. The government awards them special privileges and subsidies that the average citizen has no access to. Take María Gabriela Chávez for instance. Daughter of the late Hugo Chavez, she has amassed a fortune of $4,200,000,000 while the citizens of Venezuela become poorer and poorer.

The billions in María Gabriela Chávez’s bank accounts are not some anomaly of “poorly implemented” socialism, but exactly what absolute power provides.
