"Instituto De Altos Estudios Sobre El Pensiamento De Chávez" will it offer a curriculum based on his unstable television rhetorics?

The INSTITUTO DE ALTOS ESTUDIOS SOBRE EL PENSIAMENTO DE CHÁVEZ (Institute for higher studies on the thoughts of Chávez) was launched this weekend by President Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela, in Sabaneta (Province of Barinas), with the elder brother of Chávez, Adam, as the head of the institution. This new job he does alongside his governorship of Barinas. It seems all in line with the nepotism tradition of great caudillos in Latin America. One only wonders what will it be that can be studied at this 'high level' institution.


The collected works of Chávez on paper do not exist and would probably have the volume of the new Venezuelan constitution he shows in this picture in the popular pocket format.... Would the curriculum be based on endless hours of archival footage of his unstable television rhetorics, with students being trained to reproduce them 'ad verbatim'? Or, can someone cull a post mortem underlying logic from the utterances of the deceased 'commandante'?



inspired by this news item of 28/7/2013 in El Pais: "Venezuela crea un Instituto de Altos Estudios sobre el pensamiento de Chávez"


On the same day this news item from the web site of President Maduro: "Bautizan book Hugo Chávez, alma de la Revolución en en Cristo y Bolívar () Este domingo, el de la República vice president, Jorge Arreaza, Boda el libro Hugo Chávez, alma de la Revolución en en Cristo y Bolívar, escrito por el mayor general Jacinto Pérez Arcay. (Baptising of book "Hugo Chavez, the soul of the Revolution in Christ and Bolivar." () This Sunday, the vice president of the Republic, Jorge Arreaza, Hugo Chavez offers the book, "Soul of the Revolution in Christ and Bolivar, written by Maj. Gen. Jacinto Perez Arcay")
