The Bolívar Myth: A Tool for Legitimacy in Venezuelan Politics

04 Mar 2016  |  Caracas Chronicles
The article discusses the myth of Simón Bolívar in Venezuelan culture and politics, highlighting how his legacy has been manipulated by various rulers to legitimize their power. Bolívar, known for liberating six nations and his revolutionary ideas, is idolized in Venezuela, with his image pervading currency, public spaces, and national identity. The author argues that Bolívar's myth was used by leaders like Guzmán Blanco and Juan Vicente Gómez to consolidate power and suppress dissent. The myth was further entrenched by Hugo Chávez, who renamed the country the 'Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela'. The article suggests that the reliance on Bolívar's myth reflects a psychological need for a strong ruler and a unifying figure, but also indicates a lack of political maturity in the country.

What was Venezuela's colonial economy like?

06 Nov 2015  |  Caracas Chronicles
The article discusses the early colonial history of Venezuela, focusing on the Spanish colonists' initial quest for wealth through mineral resources, which largely proved fruitless except for pearl harvesting. As the 16th century progressed, a shift occurred towards tropical agriculture, with products like cocoa becoming highly valued in Europe. A local aristocracy developed, exploiting both indigenous people and African slaves to sustain their plantations. The Royal Guipuzcoan Company of Caracas, chartered by King Felipe V, was created to control trade and combat smuggling, but was deeply resented by the local elite. This led to its eventual dissolution in 1785, which marked a shift in power to the criollo landowners and merchants, setting the stage for Venezuela's move towards independence, with coffee replacing cocoa as the primary export to Europe.
