Chavez was a democracy hating authoritarian bastard but this quote is right.

Not while everybody in the country is starving while lived in incredible wealth. But I guess it's OK to do so as long as you spout the right party lines.

it is so sad that such good ideas were only a facade to hide the corruption of Chavez's regime and his ellimination of independent thinking media and how he fucked up Venezuela with what he did...

the problem with private owned health services and such, is that there is always corruption, private owned health, education etc is not inherently evil... but in the end it won't work because of corrupt idiots... the problem with Socialism, is that is normally used as a facade to some awful things (look at Castro and the Cuban People, who overthrew a dictator to let another rise)...

a great man and a great revolutionary, it was the cia that arranged his murder using cancer, along with several other "left" leaders, coincidence?  I don't think so

He was a wise man. Although he had moral issues, he is still considered a wise man.

Very True. Privatisation is 'killing' the National Health Service. People are more important than the profits that are salted away in 'Tax Havens'.

From what I've read on it, the NHS was dying long before anyone even breathed the word "privatisation" about it.

Oh, and perhaps those people who are salting away their money are trying to give folks like you a clue?

Admittedly, the NHS WAS and IS in the need of some reform to meet the dynamics of a society that has changed greatly since its inception after WWII.

However, the NHS has provided health care for ALL residents of Britain, not just the rich, as it would seem to be the case of the US where millions cannot afford Health Insurance and die from the results of a lack of hospital and health care. 'Privatisation' of the NHS is turning the clock back to the beginnings of the 20th Century. The British people pay Taxes and National Insurance (according to their income and resources: property, investment returns and so on). The burden for the upkeep of the social infrastructure (including Health Care, 'Old' Age Pensions (which working class people have contributed to all their working lives), Benefits for the disabled and the needy is increasingly falling upon the less well off members of our society. I hesitate to use the descriptor 'POOR', as, in relative terms, we are in one of the more wealthy and privileged societies on the planet.

Nevertheless, I am certainly, not hesitant in criticising the manner in which the Rich (Fat Cats) are dodging  paying their FAIR share and are, instead, setting up 'front' companies in different countries to avoid paying Corporation Tax. As seems to be the case in both the US and the UK. Indeed, 'Salting' may be the wrong term, as recent events would seem to suggest that a substantial proportion of the 'wealth' of the 'Fat Cats' is being spent upon Crystal Meth, and Crack Cocaine. No wonder that the B(W)ankers have trashed the economies of the world. In the UK, it was the 'People', (yes, we do still try to think of others, rather than engage in selfish individualism and accruing personal wealth that virtually says F&*K you, I'm all right), that bailed out the Banks and Financial Institutions. Those 'Guilty' of making the mess, were rewarded with multi-million £ and $ pay-offs. Is this justified? or another example of the corrupt political and financial systems currently in place. Now that, the Banks have 'cash' again and are being split up and sold off to surprise, surprise, Private Investment Groups (curious how the acronym PIG seems to appear), the tax-payer which 'rescued' the Banks etc will receive nothing, despite high inflation and increasing energy costs. Unemployment is increasing in most sectors of the economy other than that of 'High Earners'.  Nurses and Doctors are working longer hours and shifts, with reduced staff and equipment. People are dying because of a lack of funding in essential areas. Privatisation is part of the illness not part of the treatment. I would also suggest that you might, perhaps, widen you reading material in order to gain a wider and more representative viewpoint.

 I'm not sure what exactly you mean by 'needing' a clue about salting away (false) wealth.

"Be happy with what you have and don't lust or crave for that which you don't need". Material and Financial 'Wealth' doesn't 'make' you a better person, in fact, it makes you the opposite: crass, boorish and contemptible.
