Hugo Chavez said that maybe capitalism destroyed civilization on Mars. This is an interesting science fiction premise, so I decided to render some drawings of what that might look like:
You know how in the War of the Worlds the martians were killed out by simple bacteria? Maybe instead it’s capitalism they can’t stand. Like they’d come to our planet to eat our blood, but then they’d walk into a Walmart and die. So capitalism keeps our planet safe from martians.
So, interesting thoughts from Hugo Chavez, but I think our response to him should be, “You’re a dictator! Here’s bullets for your face!” And when people wonder who shot Chavez, we can blame capitalism.
