Happy Independence Day, Venezuela!

Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice.

The Angostura Address, Simón Bolívar, 1819

    1. Yes, Simon Bolivar was quite remarkable. The current leaders of the country would do well to be truly guided by his wisdom. Glad you like the picture! xoM
