What's the general thought about Venezuela at this point? It seems as though, even if radicals were somewhat supportive of Chavez and his government and movement, that none of that really exists anymore under Maduro. How much longer can Maduro blame the opposition (at this point there HAS to be a left opposition to him, and not just the pro-capitalist right opposition) without taking any action? It seems he's only tried to strengthen his power internally, without trying to address the institutional and economic issues plunging the country into insolvency. In my opinion, Maduro is either grossly incompetent or simply uncaring and must go. Hopefully his replacement would be on the far-left, but at this point, even a center-right government would improve things for the people, and it would stop the world from identifying socialism with the bankruptcy of Maduro's regime.
