Socialism is bad. There’s no way around it. Any country that has fully adopted socialism has crumbled. And those that many say are socialist countries (Sweden) have proven to have a market system. Don’t get fooled. Take an intro to Econ class and you’ll understand

This video is one of the most accurate efforts on explaining Venezuela's crisis I have seen by a foreigner (I lived there 23 years, 20 of which were under this regime, so I should know). And, yes, I'm one of those that had to flee the country too. If you think this is propaganda, just go to Venezuela... You have no idea how lucky you are, to be able to go to your local grocery store and have the possibility of buying bread (an amount for the day only) without having to get in a line for 2 hours, getting tampons or period pads without having to go to 10 drugstores and having to struggle to find money to pay them because they're so expensive. You don't get random calls from prison bosses (and I mean, prisoners who lead the prison) trying to extort you by threatening to kill your family because they have people outside that put their eyes on you because you have a somewhat "comfortable" life. I guess that you haven't been pointed at your head with a gun while waiting on a red light so they can take you and you car, and kidnap you to ask for ransom (common practice over there). Or maybe you have seen your grandma fade and lose her sight to glaucoma because her medicine (easily found in other countries) can't be found in any drugstore, and hear her cry because she can't do anything about it. Never mind the people who have cancer or diabetes and are dying because they can't find the treatment that would be easily accessible in any other country, including the US (expensive, but it's there if you can afford it). Maybe you have also had to wipe your butt with napkins you had to take from your workplace, because -guess what- you can't find either toilet paper nor napkins in the super market. Living there beats your dignity up so much that there's a point where you start dying inside, and little by little, it never stops. You feel hopeless and powerless everyday and depression has become a common situation for a lot of people. So I ask you politely, please, don't tell people that suffer this everyday that you suffer the same or more, because that's just disrespecting their huge effort to try and survive one day at a time. Life there is inhumane.

For those who think socialism is communism. Here's some education on the subject from a socialist in Belgium, a left-leaning country in the EU. Socialism is a form of government ideology where every citizen pays tax dependant on their income. The higher, the more you pay, the lower, the less. This money goes into funding health care, transport, retirement funds, infrastructure, unemployment and general public services. This assures that even people who have a low income can afford doctors or medical bills, that the elderly don't starve or waste away if they run out of money and that many essential services are sufficiently funded to keep running. Eventually, what you pay into this system, returns to you as inevitably, your parents and later yourself - or even your kids - might have doctors costs, need retirement funding or low cost house cleaning aids, nurses and so on. You might pay 1000$/year into the system but as a result, a doctor visit costs maybe 2$, essential medicine might be 5$ and many services are free of cost. Also, if you have no income and receive direct monetary aid in any way, you must prove that there is a valid reason for this, through doctors testimonies, examinations or other evidence that you literally cannot work. If you fail to do this, your income steadily decreases and eventually you receive barely enough to live or even nothing. That is to discourage abuse of the system by people unwilling to contritube to it. Eventually, they're cut loose. Communism on the other hand is a somewhat proven disfunctional model where the state owns all businesses and money and everybody essentially works for the state, getting payouts that vary depending on how much the state values that sector. It is a rather bad system that has failed in many occasions and even in countries that wear the label 'communist' it actually means capitalist dictatorship like China. On topic, Venezuela seems to have shifted from socialist to dictatorship entirely, as the state doesn't provide any service. If it WAS socialist, they would provide food packs.

1. Northern European countries are not socialist countries. They are capitalist economies with high individual taxation and a welfare state. 2. Northern European countries are quickly losing their competitive edge compared to the rest of the worldand are seriously considering lowering taxes and rolling back the welfare system in order to avoid economic stagnation and collapse on the long term. 3. Venezuela is a real socialist country. The economic situation in Venezuela is the inevitable consequence of hard socialist economic policies and the abolition of private property. 4. Cultural Marxism and the far left ideology is the greatest threat facing the Western world at the moment and willprobably cause the terminal decline of Western Europe and North America, further accelerating the rise of China and East Asia to the top of the world order. 5. Communist China has long since realized the total failure of the utopian dream of the socialist economic system and as fully embraced capitalism. They are communist in name only.

Eating rabbits may seem inhumane to us because that's not our culture, but in other parts of the world it's equally (if not more) "inhumane" to eat cows, and in a lot of places eating any meat at all. Over here in America we're barbarically consuming unfathomable numbers of mammals all the time, that's hypocritical and ignorant to paint Venezuelans in a bad light for eating rabbits, especially when there's a food shortage.

Yes i seen the video of the Empire files and yes, they have footage from telesur network which has base of operations in Caracas, but Telesur is not venezuelan state media, it is a multinational organization supported by institutions in Bolivia, Uruguay, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Cuba, Sure they have a bias toward's leftist coverage but in this world of political polarization in the media, is hard to tell who is telling the truth. Because i dont disregard the arguments made by venezuelans who loath the Chavez and Maduro regime, but there are equally as much people in Venezuela, who revere both leaders. It really strikes me that people blame socialism for venezuela's economic woes, yet it's far more complicated than that. I live in Puerto Rico and currently it is a capitalist playground for the ultra rich who evict people from their homes and bomb our islands for target practice forcing them to live a decrepid and depressing life unemployed or ona low wage job in the US yet i dont hear that capitalism is the problem, Its trully sad what is going on in Venezuela, yes, but socialism is not the culprit.

Either the US wants a socialism or capitalism since Americans don't want to be smart enough to accept the balance. We practice both capitalism in markets and trade but socialism with healthcare and education. But the only people that would bitch and complain about one or the other depends on how much money is in their bank accounts. But you could become extremist and throw the idea of balance right out of the fucking window. Hell... why don't people leave to bring down the amount of people in the country for better distribution if you hate it so much?!!! Ugh. No one wants to pay taxes or have corporations pay their fair share but everyone wants free shit. Great. America is one of the richest countries in the world and people are still stupid when it comes to economics.

I love your show but you are off the mark here...Chavez was dedicated to disrupting democracy and building himself into a dictator from the start and that was the purpose of everything he did. Before he died things were already were terrible and Venezuelans in desperate conditions. Chavez was a very bad person, set on absolut power. Maduro is incompetent it is true, but Chavez set the entire thing up and this disaster would have happened if Chavez hadn’t died.

Communism was initially about a quest for the ideal society; the dictatorship of the proletariat was intended as phase 1 of that quest, which would ultimately lead to the ideal communist society that has never actually been created on earth because, sadly, the dictators of the proletariat decided they liked dictating a little too much and just froze things there. So people explored other forms of socialism which often incorporate elements such as a democratic government, while still retaining core ideals such as caring for every member of one's society to the best of one's ability. Sadly, it sounds as though Venezuela's government has been trying to force a system into existence which attempts to pull money out of thin air. A diversified economy with strong production and provision of domestic goods and services, as well as exports of various specialty goods, would perhaps be a good idea; simply printing more money, on the other hand, creates no additional value, so the money loses value as its quantity increases... all of which may be vaguely described as an attempt at socialism, perhaps, but a poorly managed one. The way to win an economic war of any kind, surely, is to build up a strong economy and provide as much as possible for the people of one's country, from one's own country? Possibly importing key resources in order to refine them into advanced goods that can be sold at a profit. I suppose historically, socialist and "socialist" states have been a bit bad at the whole "how an economy works" things... but I feel this is more a consequence of narrow-mindedness and lack of big picture thinking than of socialist ideals themselves.

As a venezuelan, let me explain something to you idiots, venezuelan media is completely controlled by the government, opposition leaders are thrown in jail and anyone who opposes risks being killed, are you guys really willing to believe Telesur(chavista propaganda) over the real facts being stated by virtually every venezuelan commenting on this video? I completely agree with John Oliver and I praise him for depicting the tragedy in venezuela is an accurate light.

So now we're playing 'let the sources speak for themselves'? That's different, but I'll give it a shot. Question though, are we discussing a universal income for everyone that replaces welfare services or simply an income based welfare system that is streamlined into one program instead of several? Vox seemed to argue for universal income but suggested it should be income based, which is more similar to current welfare. Not exactly universal if it's based on income. www.nationalpriorities.org/budget-basics/federal-budget-101/spending/ fee.org/articles/why-socialism-failed/ thefederalist.com/2015/08/11/scandinavia-isnt-a-socialist-paradise/ www.nytimes.com/2016/06/01/business/economy/universal-basic-income-poverty.html fivethirtyeight.com/features/universal-basic-income/ socialwelfare.library.vcu.edu/recollections/current-issues-and-programs-in-social-welfare/

Venezuela, or the officials are not against Capitalism. As the video, establishes, Venezuela is very corrupt. When Chavez was alive, he used to come to Disneyland, bought high-fashion-branded apparel, and pay for Justin Bieber concerts to his daughters. While, he always protested that Capitalism, and be rich was bad. Also, one of his or still officials, was bashing against Capitalism, while wearing a LV tie. I know this information from a very famous Venezuelan DE-vidr, living in Argentina. He knows all the batshit in Venezuela. To all the Spanish-speaking folks out there, visit his channel Drossrotzank and look for "Dross Norcorea," pretty good information there. Possibly he has English captions as well

Cannot overemphasize what a steaming pile of horseshit this propaganda is or how tremendously disappointed with Oliver I've become. Who knew someone who worked his way up on UK class-based satire could so easily be transformed into a grinder monkey for soulless fascists? Mind you, you'd never mistake him for a principled social commentator, like Carlin. This shit just isn't funny when it's no longer based on truth.

Văn Thọ Nguyễn you might want to look into other metrics of society in Singapore. Lee Kwan Kew in Singapore is an outlier in terms of dictators. They aren’t usually like that, and it came with a lot of things that many people might chafe under.
Văn Thọ Nguyễn
What kind of dictator? Lee Kwam Yew was a dictator. Signapore under him experienced jaw-dropping development and it went from a fishing village in the middle of literal nowhere to one of the richest GDP per capita nation in the world. Idi Amin was also a dictator, and his people suffered tremendously under his rule. Maybe Americans like you should try to purge the decades long propaganda you were fed with since the day one of your enrolling into public school and take reality for what it is? That the world is more nuanced, that you really, really shouldn't use blank terms like "dictatorship" and "democracy" to try to interpret the world? The Federalists had ideals and ideas still applicable today with great merit, but it would be ludicrous to expect them to be completely correct on modern affairs. Also, the federalists would most certainly not in tune with today's "popular democracy" or birthright democracy, the founding fathers of America were very much elitist: black men couldn't vote, women couldn't vote, poor white men couldn't vote. The founding fathers of America were very much aware and wary of the mayhem Democracy is capable of.

Yang Fan And so a dictator is preferable? Perhaps you should read the Federalist Papers to discover what the Founders of the USA called the US government. Hint: The form of government described by the Founders was a "Majoritarian, Representative, Liberal Democracy." The shortened form is a "Liberal Democracy" in the form of a Republic. I get it, semantics is hard for some people.

Democracy IS EVIL. Naive, clueless Americans. Democracy is majority rule. From ancient Greece to Nazi Germany, democracy displayed its amazing capability for evil.

I know that this comment is late, but I am still catching up on all the news that I missed from being homeless for a year. John-you made a throwaway comment about Trump renaming Congress Don-gress. I mentioned in passing to a friend that Trump is such a narcissistic asshole, he WOULD rename the United States, "Trumpolis", if he could. I laughed about it, but I bet the bastard would buy a town and rename it for himself if he had the idea, or throw a YUGE "TRUMPERTANTRUM" until he got his way! The big, orange, loud, rude, lying, colluding, disrespectful, cheating, racist, homophobic scumbag. I respect the office of the POTUS. Not the man who currently holds it. Being homeless for a year has not changed that. At. All.

The amount of misinformation in this piece is really making me rethink a lot of what John Oliver has covered in the past...
