For Nicolás, Venezuela is the testing ground for a non-conventional war, that’s why he claimed that this is “the electric, cybernetic, electromagnetic and psychic war to topple a government.”

in fairness, if you can wrap your brain around "magical realism", so much of latin American culture starts making sense, of all the nonsense; if that makes sense.

Never mind magical realism, there is a lot of real Black Magic, brujería, practised here.
Maduro is a devotee of Santería, as was Hugo Chávez. Its a form of witchcraft originally brought to Cuba by African slaves.

And just this week, and closer to home, the PDI turned over the office of Emiliano Elgueta, an Appeal Court Judge in Rancagua, accused of various corrupt practices. In a locked drawer they found Black Magic artefacts.

There is always an unspoken undercurrent of the super and supra natural (probably more so in the Regiones). Usually from a Mapuche/Catholic combined basis. Now we have the Haitianos to add to it.
Generally, just a SPAM KILLER. You are on your own in this forum. My personal mission here is done.

BUT when necessary, by way of ridicule and truth revelation we shalt do war.

My point is that this is no ignorant Campesino, this is an Appeals Court judge. A privileged member of the Chilean legal establishment who ought to behave in a rational, decent way. Keeping a photo of a rival stuck with pins, and demonic images is neither rational nor, for want of a better phrase, Christian behaviour. And this type of malignity is not uncommon, even among the better-educated. Its something I have slowly become aware of over the years I have lived here.

It happens all around the world, people who are “rational” in their professional life can have nonsensical beliefs in other fields, especially when it comes to metaphysics.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, all kinds of pseudoscientists and psychics appeared. Many engineers and doctors were “charging water” by placing jars in front of their TVs because one popular psychic was sending healing waves during his shows.

Frazer described two patterns of magical thinking that consistently appear across all cultures: homeopathic (similarity-based) and contagious (contact-based). So probably people’s minds are predisposed to be caught into these delusions.

With a judge like that things start to make more sense with the judiciary here.

My father, a prosecutor and defense attorney for many decades in the u.s., use to say, "what is the diffrence between a corrupt judge and a crazy judge? At least you know what the corrupt judge is going to do".

I am not sure which catagory that one falls in to.

I still think the Caso de Colliguay takes the cake for the kind of craziness that permeates the minds of some local intelligentsia. https://www.24horas.cl/nacional/secta-d ... el-2319914

What's interesting also is that the case has a socialism connection, in that the pregnant woman concealed her pregnancy from her family by telling them she'd be away travelling Ruta de Che.

A propósito de Santería in Venezuela, here's a BBC report:
At Caracas' largest cemetery, Cementerio del Sur, most of the graves have been looted, for jewellery, gold teeth, or even bones, which can be sold for use in rituals.
