Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, one of the world’s most vocal opponents of capitalism, delivered some absolute gems in anti Capitalism sentiment last month. Chavez is quoted as saying, “Socialism, the other ghost that is probably wandering around this room, that’s the way to save the planet, capitalism is the road to hell.”  When delivering a speech in Copenhagen, Denmark Chavez said,“Seven percent of the world population – some 500 million people – are responsible for half of contaminating emissions. Capitalism is to blame for this..let’s fight against capitalism and make it obey us.” Chavez provided no evidence of any kind to back up his claims. It’s obvious that some feel capitalism leads to pollution and an inferior to the second most popular economic system socialism.
