Aparecida Notes: the Nueva Cuba in South America

From the new (old-fashioned) "Socialist", "Bolivarian Republic" in Venezuela, the news of the new law which allows President Hugo Chávez to rule by decree. The name of the act: Ley Habilitante (literally, Enabling Act). Now, where have we seen this name before?

In fact, the "Ley Habilitante" is just the first of the five "Constituent Engines" which will drive Venezuela towards its "Revolutionary Socialist" future... The third "engine" looks promising: "Moral and Lights: education in Socialist values"...

Yes, Pius XI will always be right: "no one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true Socialist" (Quadragesimo Anno).
