    State control is doomed to fail because people are naturally greedy, they cut corners they put their friends into positions regardless of merit. Socialism doesn't work because we aren't that good.

    Well yes it's America fault , sanction is only going to kill people with shortage of food and medicine , even North Korea government is not hurting with America sanction , only people are hurting so I hope your audience that laughing so free don't believe US government has nothing to do with it

    BeneZela is the Ukraine after elections. It is really worth considering to devote one of episodes to this matter. It is much more frustrating and frightening in fact that any other results of elections in the world and I'm not exaggerating.

    OMG how did you get so much total propaganda BS in your head? Mismanagement isn't what's causing problems in Venezuela, it's the USA and Capitists screwing things up as much as possible, propping up a fake president who no one even heard of until he literally appeared and proclaimed himself president, trying to do a freaking coup. The Majority support Maduro, not just 1/5th. And, please show us how You eat a banana, I'm really curious.

    You are a fucking liar and you manipulate with facts John. USA is responsible only for 3 coup in South America? What about: Cuba, Honduras, Panama, Chile, Nicaragua and Venezuela in 2002, you fucking warmongering cunt. Leave Venezuela alone.

    Everytime we talk about Venezuela the far leftists feel this need to point out that there are some tiny places where socialism works without providing examples and just calling Venzuela an example of corruption instead of socialism or both. They want to separate them somehow because they think socialism is ideal even though no major country has worked and one major country collapsed and one rich with nothing but pure liquid gold is collapsing. It was purely corruption somehow. This is what you call ignoring objective reality.

    That chill brunette. I love everything about that chick. The outfit, the hat (beret?), the way she holds her drink. (Looking at that cellphone, is this a stereotypical hipster?)
    Her voice: "I just want to be able to have health care, honey."
    And that warm voice insulting the interviewer: "You people have like, worms in your brains."
    Reaching for her straw with her tongue, oh god, marry me! xD

    • confused squirrel
      confused squirrel 6 days ago

      @tenhirankei no because they are not indipendent countries and are a part of a country where the majority of people speak English. Like you said Little Havana is in Florida which is in the USA, a country where more people speak english than there are speaking spanish or portugese. You can easily find information on that topic on the Internet if you are interested in it.

      @confused squirrel Are the barrios in "anglo america" and Little Havana in FL also part of Latin America?

    • confused squirrel
      confused squirrel 6 days ago

      No latin america is a term that is used to mean central and south amerika both. You can divide the Americas into three parts north, central and south amerika or into two parts anglo america (the part that mainly speaks english) and latin america ( which is the part with countries where mostly portugese and spanish are spoken.

    I come to John Oliver’s page to get lots of informative information. That being said It has been made quite evident that this particular piece is way off in a little disappointing. This particular piece has been several RU-clip videos debunking his info. A little disappointed in the research and perhaps some of the miss information on this particular John Oliver piece.

    John Oliver i did not know how stupid usa are trying propaganda on people
    because the oil worth trillions and the usa let venezuela build big cities and filled the
    supermarkets with imports only
    and with the help of religioes dumbing in freefall population growth in catholic perfection
    now the population is to big to be supported with the local economy
    the usa only stopt the food supply and implemented inflation
    only to blame socialismen
    hence all to get the oil for free so far it is not working you morons

    America has crippling sanctions on Venezuala. It is kinda America’s fault.

    • epiclolyay
      epiclolyay 13 days ago

      Andres Porras well the US isn’t allowed to actually. The majority of US sanctions are illegal under international law, and in some cases even the American constitution. For example an illegal sanction is stopping medicine into both Iran and Venezuela.
      Also I don’t understand how your point argues against my comment. Even if the US was “allowed” to put sanctions on other countries, how would this somehow mean that they aren’t using then to cripple the Venezuelan economy?

    Oh the innumerable wonders of planned economy. I still remember people telling jokes when I was little about how East Germans had to wait in line for bananas or wait 10 years to get a car. Still, you could say: at least people didn't literally starve. Getting anything considered a luxury however unless it served as an output for state propaganda like TV or radio? Good luck with that. People had their work, they had food, they had their families but they also had to live in constant fear of the Secret Police, sometimes employing even close family members.
    Socialism can be a stable system but neither does it create wealth for the masses nor does it create the coveted utopia people want it to. Every time communism was attempted through socialism in the past it lead to tyranny and it will continue to do so because socialism by design centralizes power in a selected (not elected) few of individuals.

    And before anyone brings up Sweden - Sweden is a social democracy, a welfare state, not a socialist state. There's a different many outside of Europe don't seem to fully understand.

    You know what Rabbits would be a great way to mass-produce meat in a very short time frame, it's honestly pretty genius... Can't blame Venezuela for kind of being annoyed with people turning them into pets when there is food shortage.
    The rest of their plans though? Oh hell no, that said sad to see John didn't cover how the US had a big part to play in the current state of affairs in Venezuela. The US may not have caused it but they certainly didn't help the situation when they started imposing sanctions and blockades...

    I used to think John Oliver and his team did his homework when talking about any subject but after watching this video it just makes me doubt everything I have ever heard from him. I'm from Venezuela and it is incredible how wrong he got things or how sometimes he has twisted certain situations to fit his program's views. That's a shame. Liberals were supposed to be the intelligent ones!

  • Bart Ros

    Sad to see that just a little bit of using Google will show that lot of the “facts” in this video are distorted or wrong. Its nothing more than a mockery. You are not gonna get any actual facts if you let your research done by someone against their government. Maybe if LWT is so fair and balanced, it should point out the fact how USA and foreign interest are the root of lots of their inflation and food-shortages. Their corrupt and weird government none withstanding. Maybe rectify that Oliver....

    Shame on establishment mouthpiece John Oliver and Last Week Tonight writers for grossly misrepresenting the situation on the ground, as well as the larger political and economic context, in and around Venezuela. Have you even been to Venezuela? I guess toeing the line in clownish fashion is just way easier than using your soap box for providing meaningful insights on international dynamics. You tools!

    No mention of the Venezuelan gold reserves stolen by 'so-called' Democratic nations. Hmmm. I wonder why! What is going on in Venezuela is just the same old story of western empires plotting to steal their oil reserves. Western society is supposed to be made up of mostly educated people but sadly education in western society is just learning to remember shit. It doesn't teach you how to think critically nor does it promote intelligence. My point is, western society is made up of stupid gullible people who believe the same lie over and over and over again even if the previous lies were exposed. People need to stop watching the mainstream opinion media that is just filling their heads with dumbed down propaganda shit. Have some respect for yourself and start seeking TRUTH away from garbage like this and assholes like John Oliver. Using comedy to push lies and propaganda is a whole new level of evil designed to manipulate you.

    Yet another John Oliver episode that is full of lies, misquotes and blatant U.S propaganda. I've said it before and I'll say it again... What an asshole! Anyone who listens to this asshole is far too stupid to understand that John Oliver is nothing more than a talking puppet for the elite. John Oliver is using comedy to divide opinions and misinform Americans on so many topics and the reality/consequences of this are NOT funny at all, in fact, it's dangerous.. Is it any wonder so many people have no clue what is really going on in the world when this evil manipulator is convincing people to think a certain way that isn't based on any truth or integrity. This video, in particular, is American imperialist propaganda. I highly recommend everyone who has seen this to watch the following debunking video that literally destroys every John Oliver fact and exposes his lies. The video is called: Leftist Debunks John Oliver's Venezuela Episode: ru-clip.com/video/_fV-C1Ag5sI/video.html and by the way, I am not a leftist but I still agree with everything said.

    CHAVEZ, When he took office, Venezuela was poor, the first thing he did was to Nationalize all Oil companies, kicking out Exxon Mobil, ConocoPhillips, Chevron, Norway’s Statoil, BP , France’s Total, so instead of the Oil profits going to these companies and it's stockholder, Chavez said we will use this profits for education, healthcare, housing and food for our people, with those profits we will payoff the IMF, Which he did, pissing everybody of in the West, in a short period Venezuela's poverty level decreased by 20% more then 40% of its population become literate (educated)...so the west retaliated by putting sanctions and demonizing Chavez for helping his people, so now there is fight for Venezuela keep Nicolas Maduro who will continue with Chavez legacy or replace him Juan Guaido who want to bring back the Oil companies and was educated in the United States....so who is truly the bad guy in this picture.....remember the truth hurts but it will set you free....

      "There can be no society without some socialism.

      I agree, but there is no society under socialist government.
      Everything under socialist government is shitty.

      Technology thrives under capitalism and free market.
      Improvement of technology saves world.
      People keep preaching how capitalism is failing, yet capitalism is still here, the best thing ever.
      Absolute freedom to chose and thrive under it.

      Last time i checked, Venezuela were against USA, like 4ever.
      But they never turn back to their buddies called Russians.

      Venezuela have all her oil under government rules.
      I don't see how did USA managed to fucked up Venezuela if everything in it was and still is under corrupt government that hates USA?

      The worst system is the one where everyone agrees that the other side are idiots. Economic theories and believing all other ideas are evil is not reality. Successful systems have a balance. It is that way with nature, it is that way with economies. There can be no society without some socialism.

      Capitalism did not save us from the great depression. Capitalism didn't save us from the recession. Capitalism will not save us when the dollar collapses under the weight of massive debt.

      Venezuela has about as many people as we have illegal aliens. They have the world's largest oil reserves. They will recover if left alone. But instead the US wants to use them to extend its dynasty.

      Oliver's bird was all right wing. It takes balance and cooperation between the wings for a bird to actually fly.

    Propaganda shoved down the throat is easier to digest when diluted in humour. Had fun watching it, but sh#t content indeed.
