Boli­var and Chávez: the spirit of radical determination. By István Mészáros (Vol.59, No.3, July-August 2007)
“As we know only too well, the historical tempests which carry feathers like Simón Bolívar can temporarily die down without fulfilling their original promise. The objectives set by even the most distinguished historical figures can be realized only when their time truly arrives both in an objective and in a subjective sense.”

New Politics

Karl Marx and Simon Bolivar : a note on authoritarian leadership in a national-liberation movement. By Hal Draper (Issue 25, Winter 1968, Vol.7, No.1, p. 64-77). The article is reprinted in Hal Draper’s book: Socialism from Below (1992/2001; på Marxists Internet Archive)
“Considering that the article was supposed to be bland and nonpartisan, Marx was clearly presenting an extreme hostile view of Bolivar’s authoritarianism by means of selection and emphasis. Through all this, the progressiveness of the struggle for independence itself is not only unquestioned but confidently assumed. … Thus, for Marx, Bolivar’s Bonapartism is counterposed to the interest of the revolution.”

Hugo Chávez, Marx and the ‘Bolivarism’ of the twenty-first century. By Jair Antunes (12 February 2007)
“Hugo Chávez, in particular, has presented this movement as a continuation of the old crusade of Simon Bolivar, the ‘Liberator’, who two centuries ago said he intended to save Latin America from the imperialist yoke, but who in reality laid the foundations for centuries more of imperialist domination.”
