Venezuela isn't a socialist country. It could be, but it's not, because socialism requires a high development on your means of production, like industrialization and an agrarian reform. That is a sine qua non to the collectivizing of the means of production. And Venezuela is far from getting there.

de-vid.com/video/video-_fV-C1Ag5sI.html - Yes Oliver, your report is sadly as biased as it could be and lacking substance. Man, I believed in you until the Empire Files showed just how much you failed to report the whole truth. I am deeply dissappointed, and until you publish a retraction and a more complete report, I'll just have to believe that you re an ugly human stooge working on behalf of elitist globalists under the guise of humour, hellbent on denigrating the native peoples of the world while promoting a false and biased homogeneity that simply seeks to disguise the rigged world and pretend that it is the excluded common man who is guilty and not the educated, privileged who wage war on their disadvantaged brothers for the sake of their greed!!!!

Colombia has fared much better with a market economy. Venuzelan culture is very similar so I think the refugees will do fine in Colombia escaping socialism. This Oliver British prick doesnt respect his own culture and would rather it be be multicultural mess. England is a dying culture. .

It's truly strange listening to that Info Wars "reporter" trying to compare Bernie Sander's inspiration from the socialism in Scandinavian countries (including my own land, Norway) to Venezuela... Seriously. Do some Americans just hate on socialism without even learning what types of socialisms there are? It does quite frankly seem like it :/ If you are going to be against something, that's honestly fine, but at least know WHAT it is you are against.

Price controls and top-down control of the economy is A socialism, but its not THE socialism! Socialism usually means that workers own stock in the companies that they work for, and thus elect the CEO rather than stock holders who aren't the workers. Also send out the drones to get Maduro and his lackies!

I'm a fan of John's genius, but this was his weakest episode. He said the empanda was cake and a 4th meal, hmm... it could have just as easily been meat in it and he's eating because he doesn't have time to sit down and eat a meal. Maybe Maduro''s busy (unlike president Trump) trying to a run a country that's been viscously blockaded and attacked economically by rich and powerful countries, just for exercising it's sovereignty, resisting dependance on IMF/World Bank and holding firm to it's socialist ideals. Ideals that a world faced with climate catastrophe and nuclear war should strive to recognize.

I don't know much about Venezuela in particular, but you can't automatically operate under the assumption that leaders care about their people. Corrupt leaders aren't really stupid but rather evil. "Venezuela is basically a dictatorship now." Yeah, that's the point. Maduro is still in power, and from his selfish perspective that's a success. Resources don't generally lead to leaders caring much about their people unless it's a very stable democracy.

Except we have. We can use tax revenue, which may not have to be adjusted all that much if we could do better with where our money goes (we're set to spend more than the next 7 countries combined on our military, and a lot of that money goes to waste (e.g. we spend $1280 _per mug_ for metal coffee mugs that consistently break))

AA610 Vor 23 Tage
There are aspects of it that work well (look at Scandinavia), but I won't try to pretend it's failsafe and foolproof (as seen here, bad oversight turned things into a complete mess). That said, if your biggest objection to any kind of social program is "But look at Venezuela", you need better arguments.

+Edduin Casanova Thanks for the reply. :) The main reasons for me to want to live in the US are the capitalism and the american culture. Just like you said, being able to work hard and get what you want in no time. Here in Brazil people are starting to see that the capitalism is not the bad guy. Everyone flees to the Us, a country with no paid vacation, no 30 day vacation (like here), no 13 payment (in december), but still you grow and accomplish your goals much faster than in socialism. Like we say in here, Hugs!

Rafael Galindo , hello, I love this country, I have three kids and a beautiful wife, capitalism is amazing, if you work hard you can make a nice living , I know is not perfect but it is a bless land , the constitution is the most amazing document any country can have, I think the constitution is the only thing that keep America free for the past 200 years I took an oath to solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic We need to keep the leftist liberals away from the government and that it’s hard because media is against Trump every day all day long , I’m not agree 100% with Trump but the guy have the lowest unemployment rate in the past 30 years, the economic is breaking records every day, there is less people in government assistance, today there is more jobs than people to fill the positions, it is incredible good to be here today, I know Trump is no a humble and perfect man but he is the perfect man for America at this moment The most important thing is that God is in control, God gives and take away kingdoms.

Hi, there! How do you feel about living in the US now that things are changing? I mean, being honest, I am brazilian (recently we got a new president) and I aways wanted to live in the US (going to study and then becoming a citzen). Sadly, my family has been talking to me, telling me to think twice before I go, saying that the US is not the same from 10 years ago. I am not a fan of Trump (although I am a right wing voter) but I think that if socialism takes control of the US things will go Venezuela way in a few decades, while here in Brazil our economy is starting to grow again, major companies investing in the country, etc. What are your thoughts?

Regarding the re-denomination of the Bolivar; theoretically it could have worked. The idea is it gives the government a leg up. What you would have to do after re-denominating a currency is both reduce the supply, and decrease the amount in circulation. Maduro didn't do this, he continued to print more money after the fact and due to the already shaky stability of the economy, caused inflation to skyrocket. He did the same thing that was done in Zimbabwe in the 2000's, they re-denominated and then continued to print more money. It's like people who have liposuction done to give them a head-start on weight loss, if you continue eating the way you were before you had the liposuction done, you'll end up right where you started. The idea of re-denomination is a valid strategy for curbing hyperinflation, but it doesn't work on its own. It has to be part of bigger structural changes to the economy that supports the currency, and that's what both Chavez and Maduro got wrong, except Maduro (who inherited a catastrophically unbalanced budget, fledgling economy and confused administration) used that system to benefit himself, instead of the people.

The youtube comments on any sort of news report from Venezuela are a fucking riddled with "STILL THINK SOCIALISM IS GOOD?! DUURRRRR!" It's just so fucking naive and ignorant. These people haven't a clue what put Venezuela in the horrible crisis it is in. Also, there are other socialisms in the world besides Venezuela which are doing just fine, but these people are the same morons who think global warming is false and use a cold winter day as an actual argument against it. So what do you expect from their level of understanding? Those people really do have a worm in their brain, and it is called Fox News. The propaganda that Fox News spreads does a great job telling you that Liberals are leftist/socialists when in reality, liberals and very much capitalists and are very different from leftists, but Fox news doesn't want you to know that because it would undoubtedly give more moderate votes to the Liberals like there rightly should be. We are not socialists, no liberals are asking for the US to become a socialism, we just want some fucking healthcare, we NEED healthcare, and we need regulations against the abuse that some companies will put their employees through. That is not what a fucking socialism is. That is what a successful capitalism looks like. Leftists are the ones that want an actual socialism where the government directly controls the economy. Laws against monopolies, scams/schemes, and other types of abuse and detriment that a company can cause to a human(s) or an economy is NOT a fucking socialism. Get educated, stop believing in propaganda. The worst part is that these people don't even care about the insane amount of human suffering happening in Venezuela and they are fucking using it to push their stupid political ideals through a logical fallacy, which it is confirmation bias I believe.

We can’t have proper political discourse with morons who say things like “you have worms in your brain.” The left is trying to ruin the country through rhetoric and control of the media. If Bernie Sanders became president he would run out of money in no time and burn the country to the ground. You may not agree with capitalism 100% but in the end it’s the best thing we have right now. The US economy is currently booming. The stock market continues to rise and the unemployment rate is decreasing. In fact, “The black unemployment rate of 6.8 percent in December (2017) was the lowest since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking it in 1972, a year in which the rate ranged from 11.2 percent to 9.4 percent. In the 45 years the data has been tracked, the unemployment rate for black or African-American workers aged 16 years and older has never fallen below 7 percent” (CNBC). You can clearly see that capitalism is working. Democrats support the very socialist policies that force people to eat rats to survive. And this is why I think we should vote red this election.
