venezuela should have followed the norwegian economic/social model after they discovered the oil reserves. Look at Norway's economy and well being.

HEY, you idiot! Venezuela also has 700 youth orchestras and gave us GUSTAVO DUDAMEL who conducts the L.A. Phil. And one of their bass players became the youngest person ever to win the Principal chair with the Berlin Philharmonic, you moron. This is about blood and oil. A rogue CIA. And a military that is no longer civilian controlled. Make me laugh about that.

Does anyone really know what "socialism" actually means? France is a socialist country. Venezuela was/is a corrupt tinpot dictatorship.

The problem is not miss management, the problem is the miss management that socialism allows... To give more power to s government will cause some fascists like Maduro or Chavez or even my hated ex president Correa, who you even made fun of some years ago...

Dear John Oliver,
I absolutely love your program, your sense of humor and the topics you talk about. I'm Venezuelan, and although I do appreciate you talking on the matter of our terrible crisis, I do have to tell you it was hard to watch. I would also like to correct some miss information you have stated on this segment on Venezuela. First: Chavez said he had "social programs" going, but that is not true. All were a fake, all were corrupt; that was his way to make the world think he was a great "socialist" president, when in fact he was a miserable dictator, cruel, corrupt, selfish and communist. All programs were fake, all failed miserably, all made people more sick, more hungry and more poor. All that is happening now is thanks to him, even Maduro was placed in power by him. And he might have won the first and second elections, after that the government has cheated systematically in every single election so they can stay in power.
Also would like to add, that the crisis here is a bit more tragic than exposed; people are dying in many more numbers than any war in the past two decades. This is a genocide, not only there is no law to punish violent crimes that are out of control, people are also dying of hunger, lack of medicine or medical treatment. To put in in words that maybe all can understand easily, this is a bit worse than the Hunger Games, (yes, the movie you've all seen, it has become real here in Venezuela. And people are so afraid of the government cruelty that protests have dwindled, just to try to survive. ) To make things worse the government officials are the same narco-dealers, and are giving passports away to middle eastern terrorists that have nothing to do with Venezuela...
So, Thank you for your segment about this Venezuelan crisis, I do appreciate you talking about it! I know it is sad and hard for a Venezuelan to watch, just would like to add that, Chavez, Maduro and Venezuela's government in general DO NOT represent Venezuelan people in general. Just a sad, mediocre bunch of corrupt communist narcos that got their hands on power and a lot of money, and we are stuck with this now. It seems the great country we use to be, will never come back.
(Be advised when a political contender comes out saying he is a Socialist: Venezuela is the result of putting socialists in power.)
Thanks again,
your Venezuelan admirer!

Socialism in the third world fails because it is thwarted and sabotaged by Capitalist/Vested Interests.
Capitalists would rather people were enslaved by tyrants, or killed, before they would allow people to make decisions for themselves.

disappointed... we could expect something a bit different than the repeated arguments directly coming from the foreign office... I'm certainly not denying that there are many problems there, but come on, how can you deny US intempt to influence ALL latin american government. The only fact that Trump will punish Venezuela after their recent election speaks for me.

So, what does all this about Venezuela mean for the US? Will the US try to topple the gov't of Venezuela as it tried to do in 2001-2? "Will the US Invade Venezuela?"

Wow. This is so f***ed up and wrong I’m left to wonder whether this is misinformation or deliberate disinformation. Venezuela has been on US sanctions for years, as well as a blockade. Even I knew this. From 2016:
I pulled those up in a simple Google search in 5 seconds.
And for f*** sake, it’s hardly a secret to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention that Venezuela, which has the largest oil verifiable reserves on the planet, has been a CIA target for DECADES, having once launched an actual coup that brought Chavez into power in defiance of the US. Jebus, John. READ! This is all pretty well known across the globe. Used to respect Oliver and TDS staff while they were taking the piss out of the establishment. Now, they appear to be serving it. This is just fascist, oligarchic-, military-servile bullsh!t.

Socialism looks like so much fun. Sorry, John, but the proof is in the pudding. Socialism begets the epic mismanagement that you mentioned because the whole system is predicated on tight regulation and leaders' simultaneous resistance to corruption despite their absolute power over everyone. We have enough corruption in our capitalist democratic republic already. Can you imagine the United States on socialism? We'd be so fucked, so fast.

Maduro kinda has some reason to be suspicious of America. We've done a lot of shit to countries that dont agree with us politically. I'd be a little worried too, especially if my country wasnt doing well.
Hush - Před 12 hodinami
People need to understand that there is different kinds of socialism. And alot of countries thrive with it. Like most of Europe.
The kind of socialism you have in South America is not the same as for example Sweden.
In exchange for higher taxes we get free healthcare, 12 years of free education, police, fire department, roadworks and more. That is working socialism, a good thing. That being said, corruption will always exist, and has little to do with socialism.
Just look at the US. They're a republic and one of the most corrupt systems in the world. They even found a way to make bribes legal. Half of congress is on some companys payroll, and their elections is sponsored by corporations aswell.
Hush - Před 7 hodinami
I dont see even know what I said that you percived as racism so im not that bothered. I didn't have a point except the one about corporations paying of politicians is basically bribing and therefor corruption, which you agreed with after calming down a bit. A countrys economy scales to the number of people who live there. Obvious really. And as you yourself have pointed out, one US state makes more money than france. So how can you expect France to contribute as much as the US? Not really realistic is it. But as I pointed out, the economy scales with the number of citizens (atleast in developed countries). So yes, almost every european country have enough money for social programs because free healthcare in a smaller country is cheaper. Again, pretty obvious. The US spends more than China, Russia, France, Japan, India and the UK combined on their military. So insted of telling us to spend more money on arming ourselves, maybe you should spend less. And have a less aggressive foregin policy. Then you could have nice things to. Insted of constant wars on foregin soil.
LordSear1982 - Před 7 hodinami
Hush truth is you're the first person that I've pulled the race card on in over 10 years so if the shoe fits wear it. Secondly corporations that lobby the government is wrong and there are just as many corporations who are against this act as there are that actually do lobby the government however corporations in Europe also lobby the EU so i fail to see your point in that entirely. Here's some reading information on that Thirdly look at it like this.... the state of California alone generates more money than the entire country of France.. Thats ONE state out of 50 compared to an entire country yet you somehow think with the very little money that each European country produces that they are somehow self sufficient enough to have exquisite social programs?? Be honest with yourself mate. Europe doesn't produce shit compared to the United States.. its apples and oranges and i can fully assure you that we've tried to pull out of NATO several times and NATO has begged the US to stay in fact the day we finally pull out of NATO Americans will be dancing in the streets and celebrating for months!!
Hush - Před 9 hodinami
LordSear1982 You sure pulled out that racism card quickly didn't you. Its about how you implement it and how you actually govern your country. Socialism is socialism, the difference is how you wield it. And you cant seriously argue that companies paying politicians money to have certain opinions and vote for or against certain things isn't corrupt. Its a blatant bribe with another name. And you are free to spend how much you want on your military, I said nothing about it. Haha so you think the US pays for Europes defence while we just sit around and get free stuff? Wow. The US is a member of Nato, you decide what you pay. Not Europe. And since most countries dont mount a full scale invasion every couple of years, we dont spend as much as you.
LordSear1982 - Před 10 hodinami
Hush You are completely talking out of your asshole and have no clue what you are saying. That same "corrupt system" that you are describing pays 900 million dollars PER YEAR for Europe defense budget which is why you have the luxury of social programs. Take ALL that money we waste each year on NATO and I would bet every inch of my soul that those social programs would go down the drain or bankrupt many countries. You are simply projecting your blatant racism with the implication of because its South America its not "real Socialism".

Actually I started breeding rabbits last year as a way to bring down my food bill and bring up the quality of my diet at the same time (I like have your cake and eat it schemes) They are a great animal to breed for meat if you live in a urban environment. Great for stews. Chickens aren't bad either, and you get the eggs, but damn those miniature dinosaurs I can't stand the basterds.
