A young woman faints in the heat as hundreds fight for pasta, screaming they are hungry. Slum-dwellers and armed gangs wait for nightfall to hijack food trucks or ransack stores. A mother is shot dead fleeing police after hundreds storm warehouses.
Food riots and violent looting have become a daily occurrence across scarcity-struck Venezuela and a major problem for the struggling leftist government of President Nicolas Maduro.
This is what socialism does when you aren't smart enough to end socialism soon enough to return to building wealth rather than redistributing increasingly smaller amounts of total wealth.
And remember, when this socialist paradise collapses, America will be asked to send in troops to restore order and help starving and desperate people.
