No, nothing to apologize for on this respect, XxxxXxxx.

The Bolivarian government IS a Bonapartist government. As most
capitalist governments are.

The problem is: is this government less worthy of support because it
is Bonapartist? And please realize I am not saying it "looks
Bonapartist", or it "has some Bonapartist traits". No. I am saying
that it IS (as it could not fail to be, since Chávez heads a FRONT of
classes) a Bonapartist government.

The general issue of the Head of the State putting itself above the
classes to work for  the interests of a single class (or fraction
thereof) is in and for itself something to decry? Does every
Bonapartist leader equate to a Napoleon the Third?

> When I said that "Bolivarianism 'could' just be about capitalist integration with all its Bonapartist accoutrements", I meant that there are Bonapartist facets to the class struggle in Venezuela, but, in spite of the emphasizing quotes on 'could', that might have sounded more sweeping than it should have, apologies for that. It was just addenda, I don't find this surprising, or unexpected, nor do I indulge in wishful whining of "why doesn't Chávez do more Leninist miracles for the God of political right?"
