If it wasn't for the high oil prices, things would already have gone very bad for Venezuela under Chaves. It's just that Maduro is a completely incompetent nutcase in addition which makes things go even worse. You need more than a bus driver's license to steer a country. But socialism certainly is one of the main reasons why things are bad in Venezuela. Socialism doesn't work anywhere, has never worked anywhere and will never work anywhere. A social democratic state, on the other hand, actually works, but social democracy is something completely different than socialism, like national socialism differs from socialism.
