Maduro: The Indestructible

This is the story of a man who never gives up. A man who has regained the place given to him after the Bolivarian Revolution had given him: at the helm of Venezuela, sitting on the world’s largest oil reserves, a man clinging to his destiny: to lead Venezuela’s socialist revolution… whatever the cost.

Yet nothing has ever been simple for Nicolas Maduro. His entire career has been made up of great victories and bitter failures. From the very bottom of the social ladder, this bus driver has risen to the pinnacle of power. He knew the years of opulence, when his country was the richest in Latin America, and he participated in its downfall. His authoritarianism, ideology and years of poor economic choices precipitated the ruin of the country he has ruled with an iron fist for nine years.

Strangled by international sanctions, he was left for dead. This time, it was certain, he wouldn’t get away with it. Anyone else would have given up, abandoned power in the face of public outrage. He chose blind repression. He was the last man, no doubt, to still believe in his lucky star… until an incredible twist of fate, combined with his political acumen, put him back at the center of the world stage. The war in Ukraine has profoundly shaken international geopolitical stakes. The world is now in desperate need of what lies beneath Venezuela’s surface. Black gold could put the man who was previously the pariah of the international community back on the throne.
