To dispel all the crazy contra(another name for the "opposition") bullshit about the suspension of "private property" to bring about "Castro-Communism", I leave you with this:
The right of property is guaranteed. Every person has the right to the use, enjoyment, usufruct and disposal of his or her goods. Property shall be subject to such contributions, restrictions and obligations as may be established by law in the service of the public or general interest.Only for reasons of public benefit or social interest by final judgment, with timely payment of fair compensation, the expropriation of any kind of property may be declared.
The late-capitalist bougi society, in which the majority of the worlds people find themselves under(literally), is in the process towards recession(the neo name of the crisis in capitalism). This decline negatively effects, much more, the majorities that produce the excess value on which, the upper crusts at the helm, live. And always, regardless of the recurring crisis or party, “private property” is the sacred cow that is the center of the economies of their capitalism.
What the owners of large sums of capital and of the means of production/information, "middle class serfs"(managerial class), and technocrats mean by private property is their right to accumulate and control this excess value without any consideration for the community that has produced it.
In other words the bougi state gives preponderance to these individual interests over community interests of all the people.
OW is correct when he say's "to develop you have to pass through decades of producing a lot more than you consume and having high levels of investment. "
As is evident here with these proposed reforms the foundation of this wealth creation will have the collective interests of all the Venezuelan people at its forefront.
The only way to develop and call yourself democratic is with a free people, working with the means of production and information held in common. And Venezuela Bolivariana is walking on that path.
The many different forms of property are recognized and guaranteed.
Public property is that which belongs to state entities.
Social property is that which belongs to the people in their entirety and the future generations and may be of two types:
-Indirect Social property, when exercised by the state in the name of the community.
-And direct social property, when the state assigns it, under distinct forms and within defined geographic territories, to one or various communities, to one or various communes, or to one or various cities thus considered as citizen property.
Collective property is that which belongs to social groups or people for their communal benefit, use, and enjoyment, being of a social or private origin.
Mixed property is formed between the public sector, the social sector, the collective sector, and the private sector in distinct combinations for the use of resources or execution of activities, and always with an absolute respect for the social and economic sovereignty of the nation;
And private property is the kind that belongs to natural persons or juridical ones and is recognized as, over consumer and use goods, over means of production legitimately acquired with the attributes to use, enjoy, and dispose of within limitations and restrictions as established by law.
At the same time, all property shall be subject to such contributions, charges, restrictions and obligations as may be established by law in the service of the public or general interest. Only for reasons of public benefit or social interest by final judgment, with timely payment of fair
compensation, the expropriation of any kind of property may be declared and without prejudice to the power of the State, may occupy prior to or during the judicial process, the goods object of expropriation in conformance with the requirements established in the law.
All persons may devote themselves freely to the economic activity of their choice, subject only to the limitations provided for in this Constitution and those established by law for reasons of
human development, security, health, environmental protection orother reasons in the social interest.
The State shall promote private
initiative, guaranteeing the creation and fair distribution of wealth, as well as the production of goods and services that meet the needs of the
populace, freedom of work, enterprise, commerce, industry, without prejudice to the power of the State to promulgate measures to plan, rationalize and regulate the economy and promote the overall development of the country
The State shall promote the development of a productive , intermediate, independent and diversified economic model founded on the humanistic values of cooperation and the preponderance of community interests over individual interests , that guarantees and satisfies the material and social needs of the people and for the greatest sum of political, social stability and happiness possible.
In the same way it will promote and develop distinct forms of enterprises and economic units of social property whether direct or comunal and indirect or state owned, as well as enterprises or economic units of social production and distribution, with these being of mixed property between the state, the private sector, and the comunal power, creating the best conditions for the collective and cooperative construction of a socialist economy.
