Dear nice people in the Venezuelan government and PDVSA who read this website (and you know who you are): When I said it was good news that electricity rationing would be maintained, I meant it’s good news for the pueblo, and by implication, it was good news for the stability of your government. Just cause I speak English doesn’t mean I meant that it’s good news for the bourgeois apatrida sifrina pitiyanqui imperio ricachon desestabilizadores etc etc. Well, anyway, nice work — I’m sure Guri will recover just fine without rationing. No really, it’ll be cool. (And yes, I know I said a while back that it doesn’t matter if they end rationing, as it wasn’t doing much. But ending rationing for the people is different from ending rationing for the big factories in Guayana, where there were tremendous energy savings. Oh wellsies.)
Thanks to the eagle-eyed scholars at the smart, speedy and snarky Structurally Maladjusted for the note alerting me to the news.
