237. Except he's moving in a direction that's very dangerous
Shutting down opposition controlled television, being granted decree powers by his party, establishing a militia, demanding his followers give up their excess material possessions, all of which are moves in a very authoritarian direction.

The only difference between the dictatorship of the proletariat, which is where Chavez seems to be going, and a fascist police state, is the window dressing.
