Evaluating the Legacy of President Hugo Chávez Using the Progressive Utilization Theory (Prout)

by Dada Maheshvarananda

Dada Maheshvarananda presenting a copy of his Prout book to President Hugo Chávez on June 1, 2003President Hugo Chávez dedicated his life to the poor people of Venezuela. He transformed their lives and transformed their country.

On March 6, the day after his death, I spent 11 hours waiting with friends to pay my respects as his body was slowly transported through the city. It took much longer than expected, as hundreds of thousands of people filled the streets and the giant stadium where the procession ended to get a glimpse of the passing casket. The crowds sang and clapped along with popular songs about “El Comandante”, shouting: “Chávez lives, the struggle continues!” “The people united will never be defeated!” “I am Chávez!” When the body finally arrived at night in the National Military Academy for viewing, the line of people waiting was more than two kilometers (one mile) long!

Why did so many people go? Why were they willing to wait so long? And instead of being a somber occasion with everyone dressed in black, why did so many wear bright red T-shirts, or headbands with the national colors, and why were they singing and shouting slogans? . . . → Read More: Evaluating the Legacy of President Hugo Chávez Using the Progressive Utilization Theory (Prout)

Recommendation of Lisa Sullivan

Our joint SOA WATCH/MITF Venezuela delegation had the privilege of spending 3 nights at the PROUT house in Caracas. In every way, the stay was fantastic! The house itself is spacious and has many places for gatherings, reflections and just contemplating the wonderful views of Caracas and the lovely Avila mountains. Accomodations were comfortable, and because we were a small group, we each had our own room which was very nice. . . . → Read More: Recommendation of Lisa Sullivan
