    "Some Socialist country is doing so batter" yah they are some capitalist country with social policy. And you pretend like all word start with social is pretend by socialism. Socialism always make dictators and never works for betterment of the citizen. DON'T BELIEVE IN THE LEFT BELIEF, BELIEVE IN FACTS.

    "Current political climate in America: two people, who don't really know what they're talking about, condescending to each other nonsensically until one of them lands a _sick_ burn." Perfectly stated. Relatedly, why I love John Oliver: he knows what he's talking about and that enables him to land the _sickest_ of burns.

    A disgusting misrepresentation of the situation of Venezuela. Check out John Pilger on Venezuela: And Noam Chomsky: (He will have said more elsewhere) Oliver Stone also made a documentary on Hugo Chavez: Otherwise an independent (I think) website on the situation is: As far as I can figure out, there is a class war between the interests of the rich and those of the poor. Involving the media, and USA sanctions which intensify the plight of their economy. Another possible source would be Empire Files which may or may not be funded by the Venezuelan government ( I don't know). The USA has a long history of manipulating regime change around the world, I believe this to be no more than a continuation of that history.

    We made everything humans believe up. We made up government's because we were to lazy to govern ourselves. We made up the certain people should have power because of gender, location when born, how much land and money they had. We made up money to shut people up. We gave people drugs to shut them up. We lock people up to shut them up. If all else fails we murder people to shut them up. We created politics. We gave the people in charge power and all we do is complain when things don't go our way. Shut the f up because u have yourselves to blame. I have myself to blame. I'm doing nothing because it doesn't mater nothing changes underneath it only appears to change on the surface. U either do something besides complain or shut the f up. You know why we are the only animals that have our problems is because we suck we are no better than anyone else

    "Some of Chavez's programs could have been sustainable IF he had pursued a sound economic policy and run a tight ship" ...this right here is why people talk past each other on the issue of socialism. The entire point is that such programs are in and of themselves not sound economic policy to begin with. Moreover, the free-market argument is predicated on the assumption that government is bad at managing things and therefore is unable to "run a tight ship". So to a conservative watching this the response would be "you don't say... the government took over private enterprises, fired the people actually capable of running a tight ship, spent a bunch of money they didn't have, which was based on the price of an unstable commodity, and now the economy has crashed? how fucking shocking! no one could have predicted that!"

    If, If, If!!!! That's the point??? What about IS??? What is the fact??? I can't believe, that a person that think our government that waste our tax dollars, run the government on deficit. Would ever want them to manage our entire income and divert it as they please. That's an oxymoron. That's why he use the word "IF" so often to justify socialism. The question is. What do you think a government with 20 trillion dollars in debt will do if they have the control of all the richest of the country and use it as they think is more ''fair''????? It looks like a bigger Venezuela to me...

    Well america did push for their middle eastern allies to lower the price of their oil so that they could buy more of it, and so that the same allies could build a monopoly on the market, thus fuckibg over a bunch of other oil producing countries, that entered major recession, in some cases completely wrecking countries, like in Brazil and Venezuela

    What an idiotic report. The Venezuelan Constitution allows the President to call for a Constitutional Assembly. The economic situation is bad, but you didn't even mentioned the US and European sanctions making it almost impossible for the Maduro government to import needed medicine and food goods. Instead of bad mouthing Venezuela's government why don't you get your facts straight.

    Venezuela is a story about socialism, and denying that should be consider ignorance or dishonest. Within no doubts, Hugo Chávez politics of controlling prices broke the country's economy, pretty much like every other communist regime. Under those conditions, no nation can survive. When idiots like Bernie Senders, Maduro, or Haddad suffocate any possible business enviroment with high taxations, Mussolini's stily labour laws and other strong interventions of the state in the Economy, they are not helping the poor. The are headbanging the poor.

    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.
