"Could this tragedy been avoided? Well, yes, if the Chavista revolution 
had not stopped at less than halfway, leaving the economy still 
predominantly in the control of capital.  Instead, the Chavista and 
Maduro governments relied on high oil prices and huge oil reserves to 
reduce poverty, while failing to transform the economy through 
productive investment, state ownership and planning."

Is that what you mean by "anti-Maduro left?" Seems rather hard to argue 
with.
