The Socialist Impulse

Charles D. Ameringer

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses the slow collapse of creole socialism, which occurred during the last 30 years of the century. The socialist systems that had been put in place in Latin America were systematically deconstructed, and some of the reasons for this reversal can be attributed to several countries. However, there were sufficient common factors to suggest a systemic failure and more powerful events affected all of the countries involved. The chapter takes a look at each of the countries that were involved in the slow collapse of creole socialism, including Chile and Venezuela.

Keywords:   creole socialism, collapse, socialist systems, Latin America, reversal, systemic failure, Chile, Venezuela
