The Return of Filibustering — Market Mad House
The world witnessed the return of a strange and destructive 19th Century American pastime in May.
The pastime is filibustering; private efforts to overthrow foreign governments for personal or commercial gain. On 1 May 2020, a group of 60 to 70 adventurers in landed in Venezuela using two fishing boats.
The adventurers’ goal was to incompetent but elected Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro. The invaders hoped to replace Maduro with opposition leader Juan Guaidó who also claims to be Venezuela’s president.
