Laureano Vallenilla Lanz November 10, — November 16, was a Venezuelan intellectual and sociologist who occupied the presidency of the congress for 20 years during the Gomez regime.
In his view, this system was democratic in the sense that it was due to the "unconscious suggestion of the majority". Vallenilla was "largely responsible for developing a body of historical and sociological theory dealing with issues of race, power relations, and social development".
He viewed "the popular masses as a backward and unruly social group" and argued that political leadership needed to be "exercised through the mediation of a popular strongman who would channel the energies of the masses during the transition to a democratic order".
Specifically, Vallenilla argued that race had no biological basis and ought to be understood as socially constructed , particularly through political projects of nation-making. Vallenilla assailed the notion that racial purity provides moral or political legitimacy. The remembrance was led by his son Laureano Vallenilla and other members of the family.
