Letter: Let’s look to Venezuela for socialism’s true effect

I’m confused when I hear people say Venezuela is proof that socialism doesn’t work. Nearly 90 percent of Venezuelans live in poverty, according to estimates by the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Since the main goal of socialism is to distribute wealth equally among the people, it appears that socialism has achieved its goal in Venezuela.
