You know that socialism doesn’t work. We know that socialism doesn’t work. Venezuelans are now acutely aware of the fact that socialism doesn’t work.
As for the New York Times, they could not appear to be more clueless.

The Venezuelan “economy has collapsed.” Now, just how did that happen?
NY Times major piece on starvation in Venezuela.
Carefully avoids mentioning socialism. All the problems are passive voice ("as the economy collapsed," "as hyperinflation appeared") or exogenous ("oil prices collapsed").

But the Left has been telling us that a “level playing field” will solve all problems.
How is this possible? Doesn't government run healthcare prevent these things? https://t.co/HCKn6C0Gry

Do you think the NYT explained the toll that socialist rule has taken on Venezuela? Nope.
As Venezuela collapses… The New York Times is a complete loss as to what form of economic theory caused this. https://t.co/bH3AOHZVx5

Your periodic reminder that Venezuela has more oil than any other nation on the planet. Socialism really sucks. https://t.co/NIOcS6GSvh

These developments in Venezuela are heartbreaking on a number of levels. Sadly, they serve as another painful reminder of how opposed to reality leftists are when they argue that socialistic governance is a panacea.
