Já haviam me contado isto, mas eu nunca tinha lido sobre o assunto. Eis que Fukuyama me dá uma luz:
…people who signed a recall petition against Chávez in the run-up to a 2004 referendum on his rule later found their names posted on the Web site of a pro-Chávez legislator; if they worked for the government or wanted to do business with it, they were out of a job and out of luck.
Incrível, não? E tem gente, no Brasil, que acha o cara um herói.
