Hah. Not one word about the US backed coup attempt of 2002 where the population rose up and forced the Oligarchs to reinstate Chavez. There is also a complete economic war being waged against Venezuela not just by the US and other western countries/banks, but also their own rich Elite who mostly hide out in Miami. Yes it's also corrupt and badly managed but our Western Empire have done everything in it's power to fuck it up. As usual USA can't accept independent countries not beholden to their banking, business and Geo-political interests. #JohnTheEmpireShill #NeoLiberalism #BankstersFIRST

The problem with this piece is that it paints a picture that Chavez was some sort of humble and generous genius while Maduro has failed his legacy, if you can call it that. The fact is that Chavez was a ruthless totalitarian and a disgusting anti-Semite. Capitalism is the way to revive Venezuela. Blaming Jews and the all-powerful foreign conspiracy, as he did and Maduro does, is not going to help. Believing that government benefits are infinite and free is a fraud. Take up the initiative, veer away from the dangerous socialist path and rebuild you country!

The inherent problem with socialism or communism is that we'll never really be able to know how well they work on a large scale, because successfully creating a socialist or communist society leaves a massive power vacuum that people just love to fill. However, filling that power vacuum with any particular group or person is fundamentally counter to socialism or communism, and is really just state capitalism (if not a full on dictatorship) masquerading as something else. The concept of ownership is alien to a truly communist or socialist society. Not "the state owns everything", but "no one owns anything" or, in a more positive phrasing, "everyone owns everything." However, there isn't really a way to prevent such a group from taking power during the instigation of a socialist or communist society due to the inherently necessary reconstruction of the society (the people are often too busy upending the old regime to make sure a new one doesn't arise in its place). So, while there would be great benefits to a large scale socialist or communist society, we'll never see them until the world runs out of people who want leaders, want to be leaders, or want power/money. Which I don't see happening in anyone who will read this' lifetimes. That's not to say that it can't work at all (socialism and communism can actually work wonders in smaller scale endeavors, such as communes), but, with humanity as it is, fully socialist or communist countries are a pipe dream. If your society believes in currency or ownership, it's capitalist, no matter what your leaders say. Socialism and communism are doomed the moment they have leaders. That's not to say that capitalism is free of similar problems, as it is incredibly easy for those with large amounts of money to bribe a capitalist government into helping them keep or expand their wealth or power. Hell, I'd go so far as to say that a number of wealthy individuals and industries wield more power in the U.S. than the government does. We're far from finding a perfect economic/societal structure. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep looking. The ideal, at least from my perspective, is that everyone is provided the tools for success (good food, good shelter, good healthcare, good education), and those who best use those tools are rewarded. But how to get there, and what those rewards should be are far more complex questions.

Maburro's Spanish is probably at a 2nd grade level, but maybe it's gone up to the 3rd grade level because he's had to try to use it intelligently. Also, he's a thief and drug dealer. He's never won a legitimate election and therefore has no authority anywhere. Finally, there wasn't socialism, just Chavez and his cronies robbing the country of its resources.

You continue to defend Socialism even when presented with evidence upon evidence of it's inevitable failure. Chavez wasn't a savior or even a good guy, he was pretty much Venezuelan Nicolae Ceausescu, and Maduro was his bus driver...literally.

Excellent work! And -as a venezuelan citizen and historian who has been living in the country during Maduro's presidency, I must say this is very objective. It's funny and objective as well. By the way, he just got "reelected" tonight. Emigration will continue here. There is less hope for a political change in Venezuela every passing day.

Kinda hard to call a nation whose economy is over 70% privatized as socialist, then again it's kinda hard to call a nation whose voting system tosses millions of votes like nothing a democracy. INB4 idiots claim the US is a Constitutional Republic than a democracy without ever understanding that under the basis of not be democratic would nullify any voting power at all. Perhaps worry about the 13% of your nation currently stuck in poverty before attempting to rag on Liberal Democratic and Social Democratic ideals based on nothing but a failure to capitalize on capitalism.

It's still not wrong to say that socialism is responsible for what happened in Venezuela. The fact that Maduro started literally seizing the means of production by appropriating factories and making several companies pull out of Venezuela. Lots of venezuelans were left unemployed as a result. The policies that John Oliver simply referred to as "unsustainable" were socialist policies. I am not some evil right winger who is terrified of socialism. I am a Swedish liberal socialist. But even I can acknowledge that pure socialism is a terrible idea that has never worked out. Ever. There are ideas from socialism that I think are useful, but it needs to be mixed with parts of capitalism and liberalism to not cause an economic collapse. And no. Sweden is not a socialist country. It's a capitalist country.
