I’d rather believe the Venezuelans who all support this video than all the foreigners arguing it’s all propaganda; it’d be a better use if time to donate to charities to provide aid to the country but then again even doing that is seen as political it’s sad really. I hope Venezuelans the best and that somehow they make it out of this crisis.

@1:35 - This is actually the typical mindset of democrats and socialists. "Look, I don't care about all the bad stuff thats going to happen... I just want more free shit" And honestly, she is either very high or really fucking slow. One question... How did Colbert and John Oliver end up going in such polar different directions? Ohhhh yeah... I forgot... They are just comedians and this is just work. But yeah. Venezuela is an absolute mess. I want none of that in the USA.

If you know John Oliver and journalism, you know he does their videos in this way to point out something he wants, but what he says here is true and gets worse. Valderrama's words were jokes too, but you can see how he is serious about it because is a real problem. They've told me things I can't even process because they are too hard, too inhuman to believe in this time. The only way to fix Venezuela, as one Venezuelan person told me, is to kill Maduro, so the entire country enters into a civil war and after that, they can build new functional policies... It is a real problem.

John Olliver, you should really be more careful with what you say. Either you are a very hypocrite of a man or just stupid. You were telling the world and pleading with Brazilians to not vote on Bolsonaro for president. You were telling the world that any alternative would be better. So you come here and talk about Venezuela and obviously you didn't do your research as well as you thought. Well, I am brazilian and let me tell you, the alternative is Fernando Haddad, who is not only friend with Maduro, Venezuela dictator, Haddad, is the creator of a book to be touch for kids 5 yrs old called kit gay, if you think this ok, then by all means give those to your kids, if you have any and if you are gay and approve that, then my friend you are a sick bastard. Fernando Haddad, is the evil part and Bolsonaro is the only hope to avoid Brazil from becoming a Venezuela. It is really easy for you to sit your ass on this chair and talk shit about serious things. Stick with what you do, it seems to working for you but show a little respect to countries that are going through hell and trying to escape communism. Again, anyone, go online and check the book Fernando Haddad, look for kit gray, he wants to remove Christian's holidays from calendar but to get more votes, today he was attending a catholic mass. So please, just shut your damm mouth.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOsABwCrn3E One of the most epic moments in the UN. This is why the government will always be wary of any US intervention, regardless of the leader (Chavez had mildly appreciated Obama in a later speech, while still sticking to his suspicions against US in general). The OJ Simpson - Diana bit was fun, but conspiracy theories regarding the US in Central and South America have always been quite believable. What if the Maduro govt is incompetent, but also not entirely silly to be paranoid about what Trump has up his sleeves regarding Venezuela?

I think it’s so stupid when republicans/conservatives say that Bernie would ruin our country with capitalistic socialism and look at Venezuela. I just wanna tell them to shut up you don’t know what you’re talking about. YES Venezuela is socialist but Venezuela only had 1 industry, ONE, and that was oil, they run out of oil, they run out of money, the country falls apart. The problem with Venezuela isn’t socialism it’s that they only had ONE INDUSTRY. America has HUNDREDS of industries. Socialism would thrive in America and it would also in Venezuela if they had other industries, but they only have ONE. Make sense republicans? Get those worms out of your brains

I usually love what John Oliver has to say, but hearing him try to defend socialism by referring to Venezuela as a stand-alone case of mismanagement is quite an ignorant thing to say. You can’t talk about Venezuela without referring to Cuba, Bolivia, Argentina or the latin american socialist movement that has been plagued by corruption and delusions of power. And you can’t talk about that and not refer to the atrocities committed historically by socialist dictators throughout the world who thought they were doing good and were the voice of the people. This report is accurate on the Venezuela situation, but that is only part of a much larger problem: socialism. I’d love to know what countries he’s talking about when he says “there are plenty of socialist countries that don’t have these problems”.

Sweden = Socialism + Democracy Venezuela = Socialism + Dictatorship That's the difference! Venezuela is a dictatorship - not a democracy! Way before the oil price drop of 2014, Venezuela was crumbling when Hugo Chavez was crowning himself as dictator. I had initially admired his work for the poor, thinking that he would replicate the Nordic model of democratic socialism. I was wrong! In 1992, Chavez tried to overthrow Venezuela's president and went to jail for it. The president pardoned him as a goodwill gesture of tolerance. Chavez then became president in 1998 and closely aligned himself with Cuba (a dictatorial country), signing very preferential oil agreements with Fidel Castro. Crime ran rampant due to a breakdown of law and order. Opponents were persecuted with surgical precision, and election results became highly suspect. Chavez eliminated term limits for presidency so he could rule indefinitely. Result: Millions of people fleeing Venezuela for their lives! I grew up working class in NYC, a mecca for immigrants from all over. I never once met a Venezuelan until I went to an expensive college in Boston. Now I'm meeting Venezuelans from all walks of life who share frightening news from there. Drivers don't stop at red lights at night because gangs bash windows to murder them and steal their cars. Former Miss Venezuela 2004 was killed that way. Criminals rampage with impunity because the police don't investigate. Extreme food shortages there constitute a humanitarian crisis. Thank you, John Oliver, for shedding light on this dire situation! I'm strongly in favor of democratic socialist policies such as universal healthcare and free higher education as implemented in bonafide democracies like Canada, Western Europe, and Japan. However, if you defend a dictatorship that perverts these ideals under the guise of socialism, then you are betraying those very ideals! Be honest and condemn this horrific regime for what it truly is - starting with Chavez!

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.
