The End: Populism Is Not A Game

While the news state that it has been a "busy day" in Venezuela, perhaps it was a little more than that. In the end, when the living conditions deteriorate deplorably in your home country, not everyone will be able or willing to leave. So what if you have to endure?

Venezuela has been giving us clues for years now about what it means to sink into social and political polarisation. Now, things have deterioriated to such a point that it is almost a civil war, borne out of political differences. By now, Venezuela has become an international war zone:

The protests have also stoked responses from several different countries, both from those supporting Guaidó like the United States, Brazil, and Ecuador, as well as those who back Venzuelan President Nicolás Maduro and his government, including Russia, Turkey, and Cuba.

We must view Venezuela as the dead end where polarization leads. That's the end, but we must never end up like that but learn our lesson while we can.
