The President of Venezuela against the PlayStation

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in a weekly radio-TV show “Alo Presidente” said the Sony PlayStation game consoles are “road to hell” for local kids, as promoting cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. Prior to this criticism the president has already subjected console Nintendo, which, he says, stimulate the egoism, individualism and violence.

In October last year, Venezuela’s legislature passed a law prohibiting the sale of “militant” video game, violation of which threatens to five years imprisonment. Now Hugo Chavez urged Venezuelan manufacturers to produce educational toys and dolls, whose appearance repeats characteristics of indigenous peoples. According to the president of Venezuela, these toys should be replaced by “capitalist rivals, which have nothing to do with the culture of the country.
