The USG color revolution has gone live in Venezuala. Several hours ago Venezuelan National Assembly President Juan Gerardo Guaidó Márquez swore himself into office as the Interim-President of Venezuela in opposition to elected President Nicolas Maduro who was sworn into office to a new term two weeks ago. This was followed shortly by US President Donald Trump stating he would recognize Guaidó as Venezuela's president.
The situation of the ground is developing, and the coming hours and days should reveal which of the two dueling Presidents controls the instruments of power. Both Presidents are claiming the support of different "International Communities" as well as "the people" in efforts to legitimize their claims. In any case, this democracy business sure appears rather squishy in its need to resort to small groups of violent men as the only means to decipher the enigmatic "will of the people" in a search for shared meaning.
