Franklin Camargo | Venezuela
There is a multitude of reasons to take an interest in the Venezuelan crisis and to advocate for freedom in that country. There are plenty of reasons, but in my case, my main motivation lies in experience — for having been expelled from medical school and persecuted by the Maduro regime after I resisted the communist indoctrination at my university. At only 21 years old, I’ve already had a political career in one of the most hostile social environments in the Western Hemisphere.
All my life, except for the last three months that I’ve experienced the American market-driven economy, I’ve lived in the most unfortunate country for a free and individualistic soul to be in. This nefarious doctrine called Revolutionary Socialism has always had devastating consequences, beginning with the collapse of the economy. It eventually reaches into the very spirit of man. The more socialist a nation is, the greater the catastrophe it is capable of achieving.
