Crime rates have gone up in recent years, and in several polls more than 75% of Venezuelans ranked insecurity as the top issue affecting the country. The plan, called "The People's Guard," has already been tested with success in 4 Caracas communities.

Why have the crime rates gone up, if everything is so wonderful in Venezuela? It does not speak well of perfect socialism and perfect ownership of the means of production by all of the people.

Who said "everything is so wonderful in Venezuela"??? Did you ever see me say that? Venezuela is NOT socialist. Venezuela is a capitalist nation where the people are making a socialist revolution. A socialist revolution in process is not a utopia. Please be realistic, and don't make up things.

You want a reason why crime has gone up? I will give you one reason that comes to mind: the U.S. false "war on drugs" in Colombia, in alliance with Colombia's oligarchical drug-trade-linked-government, is suppressing the leftwing peasant-based guerrilla forces (which tax some coca farmers), peasant movement and labour movement, and that is enabling Colombia's rightwing drug-linked-paramilitaries (allies of Colombia's oligarchy and oligarchical government) to be freed up from attacking their old enemies (the leftwing peasant-based guerrilla forces, peasant movement and labour movement), and so those paramilitaries are now infiltrating into Venezuela, to deal drugs, and act as thugs and death squads for the bourgeoisie and large landowners in Venezuela, against Venezuela's peasant movement, labour movement, human rights activists, and against leftwing politics in general.
