Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez keeps promising Venezuela and all of Latin America that he wants to give them the gift of "21st Century Socialism." [As long as 'he's' the "top dog" on that scrap heap.] Unfortunately, when you see 21st Century Socialism in action, it looks identical to 20th Century Communism. In other words, it is repressive, enslaves people, and benefits only the ruling elite.
Spain's ABC newspaper gives us a good example of democracy as defined by Chavez' 21st Century Socialism (my translation):
Chávez creates a 'black list' of all who voted in the opposition primaries
Attorney Teresa Albanes has denounced the order by a judge of the Supreme Court to turn over voter lists to the Ministry of Justice
