Socialism isn't the problem -- it's always the people trying to implement it that's the problem. They are sooo imperfect that this perfect economic system just can't get off the ground. So, the next time, maybe the people will be perfect and socialism will work. Yah, next time.

This is the first time I have been sincerely upset about this show. I know that it is focused on liberal US agenda (right wing when looking at the rest of the world), But to present a small minority who enact physical violence in ther protest as the "peace keepers" and the "good guys" is a serious offence to the world order. Socialism is the only way to achive an equal sociaty and an equal world. And if the western "democracy" can't give up their grip soon there will hopefully be serious consecuences. Best regards, A middle-class swede in a small town.

There's a difference between social democrats and democratic socialism. Democratic socialism is untenable, its done in pursuit of a "communist utopia". It's Venezuela. Social democracy is injecting some socialist ideas into society, which isn't the best idea in my opinion, but it's not a horrible idea like communism. Socialism is untenable. There is no successful socialist nation as you said. There are the USSR and their client states, China and their client states, and a few others. All of which failed or became not socialist. Social democracy has been done successfully, Scandinavia for example... Though " successful" may be a bit strong since, by their own admission, their methods are not sustainable.

It’s worth remembering that Venezuela became a massive food importer as the economy shifted to oil, and it’s one of the most urbanised countries in Latin America, so its food distribution network is controlled by about 20 corporations, who have a good reason to support the opposition. The largest, Polar, is run by a well known opposition activist. Studies have found that food shortages have spiked before important political events, like elections, so these corporations have strong motivations to restrict the food supply. Only certain products are unavailable, usually the ones imported by the corporations, while domestically produced products are highly available, as are imported goods on the black market. A study by Pasqualina Curcio found that products without government price controls are the ones in short supply. Meanwhile, partly thanks to government subsidies, domestically produced agricultural products are readily available, because that have a decentralised distribution network that can’t be choked by corporations. The shortages mean people have to resort to domestic goods or the black market, increasing prices, making the available food unaffordable. Also, things aren’t that awful. The most recent data we have shows average Venezuelan caloric intake to be over 3000 calories a day, there’s no mass starvation. A woman in this video claimed that if she spoke out, she’d be silenced by some kind of death squad. Maduro’s authoritarian, but he’s not gunning critics own in the streets. That’s why so many Venezuelans are happy to talk shit to him on TV, or to his face, and that’s a good thing. You wouldn’t see that kind of free expression in Stalinist Russia. So why the prostests? They’re largely concentrated in middle and upper class neighbourhoods, loyal to the opposition, and the western media laps it up. They don’t speak for all Venezuelans. And finally, as for blaming Venezuela’s problems on America: the US has been waging economic warfare against Venezuela for decades, they’ve imposed sanctions, making it harder to import the food that Venezuelans need, and the State Department has made large donations to the opposition party MUD, which organises the riots and protests and is supported by the owners of the corporations restricting food supplies. Trump has even repeatedly asked aides about invading Venezuela. The US is definitely involved in this story.

All of the horrible stuff mentioned in this video are things that Republicans warn about with socialism... But when the results are realized, liberals just make up an excuse for why it didn't work, then they try it again in another country. Isn't it odd that China, Russia, North Korea, and Nazi Germany ran into similar issues? Sounds like a great government strategy, let's try it in the United States, where our politicians clearly won't be corrupt and take over the system!

"Maduro has tried to make up for missing revenue by simply printing more money" That sounds like what the US Treasury department does all the time when we reach our debt ceilings and government shuts down. Oliver continues: "Inflation has exploded and that's why people are struggling to afford basic medicine or food." Tens of millions of people in the USA can't afford medicine, to go the doctor or are drowning in medical debt. And have you forgotten the 'food deserts' in America's heartland and places like Detroit where people have no access to fresh fruits and vegetables? I just saw a documentary on the hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in silicon valley that live in their cars and work 20 hours a day just to make ends meet. This is all to say, instead of being SO focused on criticizing other governments for their supposed shortcomings, maybe we should fix our fucking country first. John Oliver knows most of what I've written here. He used to cover this kind of stuff in America. Now he just does propaganda for large corporations. What a pity.

Not to minimize the authoritarian tendencies of the Venezuelan government but a huge part of the problems they have today actually stem from capitalists literally screwing with Venezuela's economy to weaken the regime. Internally their oligarchy is stopping the sale of many items, hoarding products and trading needed resources to other countries, all to weaken the government. Externally the U.S. has pursued policies to harm the people to weaken the government by placing sanctions, disrupting oil prices (side benefit, it harms Iran too), and CIA doing clandestine action in the country. I really hate the one sided arguments our media presents about what causes events to occur.
MonsieurBjornReddy Vor 17 Tage
This is so sad, and truly makes Oliver look like a fool. As a Britt, he should know a little thing or two about the devastating effects of Imperialism. I mean, in this day and age, it's not hard to find the information, and when it comes to Venezuela, that information is staggering. Which makes me wonder if ol' jolly Oliver here isn't playing the roll of a b**** bottom boy to some oil juggernaut to stoop this low. I mean, really? Making fun of a guy who is trying to keep spirits high in the midst of some of the harshest sanctions any country could be faced with, implemented by none other than the scummiest overlord, the US, where Oliver is currently banking on his accent in his incredibly opportunistic career. Should've stayed with the Daily Show, cause your ego is unappealing. And there is no doubt in my mind that the CIA was somehow involved in Chavez's random cancer. That is literally one of the options that they very intricately plotted out for Fidel Castro. Not to mention, Fidel visited Venezuela once, when he still graced us with his presence, and at the same time a well known Cuban national, a director of the Cuban American National Foundation (remnants of the bay of pigs), you can look him up, José Hernández, arrived in Venezuela carrying a 50-caliber automatic rifle, which was equipped with telescope and infrared, which was confiscated along with other weaponry he tried to transport by sea for a planned assassination. So, yeah, starving people is never a good thing. but neither is a dominant nation that uses its power to destroy any hope of democracy and will gladly back brutal dictators in place of democratically elected presidents. LONG LIVE THE MEMORY OF SALVADOR ALLENDE!

AMERICA ACTUALLY ISN'T PURELY DEMOCRACY... THE 2ND DEMOCRATICALLY MODERN GOVERNMENT WAS DESTROYED BY CAPITALISM THAT WE WERE CREATED BY WHEN Dutch east India corporation invested a lot of wealth financially colonization of 13 states... Were not happy losing that with our independence.. Then witness entire monarchy being eliminated by lowley peasants.. Was not going to allow that potential motivation for their own peasants the already once overthrown ruler by Cromwell not very long ago did everything to cause French democracy to fail including invading which allowed Nopolean to vanquish it and take over...... America.. Has never let any country democracy if corporations profits are resulting from overthrown of dictatorship that let resources and citizens exploited by the corporations when newly established democrati government expected US corporations to pay a fair value for their resources..... Ha ha ha.... The US marines invade and end democracy and reastablish right-wing strongman...... If we overthrow strongman we only allowed new democratic government to have deals for Americans corporations profits....... Today it's harder to hide so misinformation to relative anti capitalism is confused with socialize basic public services like health care which is being purposely compared with Stalinisumist which merica was responsible to creation when. We invaded Russia and engaged .in armed aggression to destroy the QST communist government. What Stalin did as nothing except name.... t lit thrs its pro communist...... Capitalism is as anti democratic as commusim.... Every time socialize is mentioned... Instant links to claim democratic socialize is communist or taxes are raised 100%....... Only thing left out is capitalism has no interest in respecting democratic process of voting rights. Of its citizens.. Or human rights in general...... If they could...... All government functions would be privatized

In all honesty, this entire episode made me sick to my stomach. Making light and trying to be funny with shit that's going on in Venezuela is just... too much. People are starving to death and being killed in the streets, sometimes cameras even capture it. Some people have been run over by military trucks and tanks. Pretty easy to sit in a desk and to have an audience laughing when none of you are in that situation. Must be nice. And then you ignorantly defend socialism as if it actually does work.

There are not "plenty" of socialist nations that don't look like Venezuela... Have fun trying to name them because not one nation in Europe is Socialist. Source? I'm from fucking Europe, just like your dumb ass. And you should know better. Socialism does not work. Period. That's why China embraced a more true form of capitalism than what the US currently has. (On the coastal cities at least.) Every formerly socialist nation in Europe including where I came from all adopted capitalism. Why don't you be honest and tell everyone how things are going in the UK since the gun ban. How about you tell everyone how the healthcare is going? It's on the fucking news every day for something different that's fucked up. The countries that do have some working social programs, are working because they don't dick around, steal most of the money, and they don't overpay people. Like our government does. I have seen how the US government runs things for decades. The last thing I want the government controlling is my fucking healthcare in this god forsaken corrupt shit hole.
