Venezuela Is Falling Apart

When a Venezuelan entrepreneur we know launched a manufacturing company in western Venezuela two decades ago, he never imagined he’d one day find himself facing jail time over the toilet paper in the factory’s restrooms. But Venezuela has a way of turning yesterday’s unimaginable into today’s normal.

    Likely the same government employee who sold him the TP on the black market also turned him in and is already reselling the same batch of TP to the next poor sucker down the street.,

    What is it with socialism and toilet paper. When I was young(er) and still in Poland, toilet paper was worth it’s weight in gold. I you saw someone on the street carrying a lei of toilet paper, you would: 1. be envey, 2. ask where they got it, 3. run to that store, 4. stay in the queue, 5. consider yourself lucky if you got some.

      It isn’t just toilet paper that is affected when communism governs. Killing the free market and private enterprise has that effect. Our failing socialised health care system is a prime example where people actually die awaiting life-saving surgery/treatment.

        of course it isn’t, but shortages of it became (at least in Poland) the symbol of the system that is not working, it is designed not to work and it will never work. it turns everything to sh..t but, alas, no toilet paper.

      I have mentioned many times that the presence of toilet paper and it’s quality are hallmarks of western civilization.
      It’s even more evident when you are sitting on some shitburner in the middle of nowhere.
