Viva la Revolucion!

Via Tacitus, we learn that Hugo Chavez, invigorated by his referendum victory, is now ready to move his beloved masses along on the path to ultimate victory over the running dogs of capitalism:

Venezuela President Hugo Chavez said the country's economy must move away from capitalism and large land holdings must be eliminated. "I call on private businessmen to work together with us to build the new economy, transforming the capitalist economic model into a social, humanist and equality economy," Chavez said during a televised speech in Caracas. "The time has come to accelerate the transformation. The revolution has just begun."
Anarchists rejoice as capitalism is smashed in Venezuala! We'll see in a few years if all those who were rooting for a Chavez victory will be eating their words or (more likely) blaming the inevitable economic collapse on an American conspiracy.
