      The problem over there is not socialism. The problem is corruption. Politicians are not working for the people. The same was happening in my country so we elected a hardcore that would probably kill, if he could (don't worry, he can't) anyone that steals money that should be going to hospitals, schools, roads, etc. We had presidents that had man-made waterfalls in their houses (Collor) paid with public money. Bathroom taps made of gold (Collor), airplane track built at his farm with the public money (Sarney). This has been so bad here that a politicians slogan was "steals but gets things done" (Maluf). I could spend hours here telling you guys what happens to a country after decades of public money being stolen. What made things worse in Venezuela is that they got a dictator on the top of the corruption. It has nothing to do with socialism.

    2. Filippo Soraperra

      Wtf? What does venezuelas crisis have to do with bernie sanders? Venezuela has a crisis because of its one dimensional economics. The rely fully on oil (95% of venezuelas exports is oil), thats not the case with the USA.

    3. Mighty Marouane Fellaini

      So if it’s so great why would millions of people flee the country

    4. White Shadow

      Thanks for actually giving us some facts about Venezuela instead of ranting stupidly about "socialism"

      2 1/2 Kgs is 5 Lbs.still not a lot of meat!

      For any socialist who don't support this video, or non-socialist who support this video. We all knew that neither a total communism nor a total liberalist country won't work. We just need their advantageous policies. You won't get free healthcare if your country is a total liberalist, neither religion for the communist. There is no left or right in politics if you become a politician who wants to make your country prosper. China is not a communist, it's the most liberal country in the world with a red flag and a dictator. If you are a left, or a right, you are not a good politician. You're a corrupt politician, you don't know what is the best for your country, you don't know anything about your country, you are only using your country for you own's advantage.

      Hey John Oliver. I watch your show. This particular episode sadly is exactly what you would expect from a corporate Western Media. You have absolutely no clue what is happening in Venezuela, or worse you know and you spun this story any way. And you call yourself a progressive voice. Maybe you should issue a retraction for your story on Venezuela if you want to earn some credibility back.βίντεο-_fV-C1Ag5sI.html&bpctr=1547438754

      Colombia... a country that has worked its ass off to improve its image so the world sees the REAL Colombia, that cocaine is a sad but tiny portion of what the country really is (not what Narcos/Netflix wants to show) and the first and only time you mention it in ANY episode is to reinforce the stereotype... thank you very much

      Sanctions never seem to hurt the (guilty) governments, they always hurt the (innocent) people.

    12. Millimeters of Mercury

      that Bernie Sanders supporter is the best person ever

    13. Michael Buckland

      I used to think John Oliver was good, now I see he is a complete idiot after watching this

    14. Melias Clarkson

      But the US placed embargoes on Venezuela... You must realise the US must take some of the blame with respect to that...

      1. Mengqi Wang

        Exactly. They are actively trying to overthrow them.βίντεο-_fV-C1Ag5sI.html&bpctr=1547438754

    15. Guerrero Jaguar

      Only Chile, Guatemala and Argentina!!! THAT IS A LIE, get your facts straigth, DO NOT PERPETUATE AMERICAN STUPIDITY WWII was the last conflict where the US indeed helped humanity, then you bitches got greedy and started bossing around everybody else heavily after the fall of the Soviet Union, the US was involved in Dominican Republic, Uruguay, Brasil, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Panam...

    16. Guerrero Jaguar

      The 1/5 th of the population support part is bullshit, Maduro has the support of over 60% of the venezuelan people...

    21. Oh Yeah?

      Venezuela is an example of what happens when someone completely unqualified but with a big crude mouth that appeals to the "common" people is elected president. Are you listening, Trumpflakes?

    22. Ojama the Great

      John Oliver I think your show is great. But you guys gotta get your shit together. What do you say to this:βίντεο-_fV-C1Ag5sI.html&

    23. james kunisch

      Unfortunately you have a vicious violent right wing in Venezuela who wants a progressive government to fail. I would also tell that young lady who is comparing health insurance to starvation by saying …. Oh so they must be eating rats in Canada and Western Europe then because they passed national socialist health insurance laws in force since the 1930's.

    24. Trained Monkey

      Look up the amazing atheist, John Oliver is bias just like the rest of them.

    25. ForAmerican

      It looks like France with a yellow vest. Venezuela is in bad shape because of the US sanction.

    26. Hannah Klein

      For you to be making a joke out of starving children, an economy that will never recover and Venezuelans being murdered by this socialist government is one of the darkest things I’ve seen. To hear the laughs of this mindless audience just shows how spoiled and out of touch we are in America. Have a little compassion for a country that is falling apart.

    27. 1 Dustbranch

      Not taking sides. I just think that the Bernie Sanders supporter interview is fucking hilarious

    29. Vic toews

      America overthre Venezuelan government in 2002 and are trying it again. This is part of the demonize process. Next sanctions then bombs. American foriegn policy is the problem in Venezuela. If Venezuela didn't have oil the American terrorists would not be staging protests and promoting civil war Americans overthrowing, or attempting to overthrow, a foreign government since the Second World War.

      The Maduro diet? Make you hard.

    31. MovieJunkie ForLife

      It's devastating to see what's happened and continues to happen in Venezuela. Here in Trinidad, they have been seeking asylum in record numbers, especially considering the size ratio of our little island to their country. Our currency, which is roughly 1TTD to 7USD is now 1TTD to over 38,000 VEF and to hear first hand accounts of how crime ridden and poverty stricken this once prosperous country is..... Also, I'm amazed Hugo Chavez still has loyal fans because the stuff I hear Venezuelans saying about him and his counterpart Maduro and the insanity of their regime, you have to wonder if those are pod people who had their brains removed and replaced with a cabbage.

    32. Mr. Ubiboy

      Okay John, what socialism countries don't look like this????

    33. Das Macht

      Congratulations on passing the ONE MILLION percent inflation mark! We should try socialism here too! Brilliant. Of course, every leftist fool will say "that's not socialism!" Socialism doesn't work. Why? Because human beings are imperfect. If we were perfect, capitalism, socialism, communism, anything would work. But we aren't. Socialism has failed over a hundred times and cost over a hundred million lives. When will people learn?

    34. Anthony Vigil

      For everyone who thinks socialism is still amazing well it’s the beginning of 2019 and Venezuela’s inflammation is now at one million.. it’s not literally not worth the money it’s printed on and many Venezuelans are leaving their country the untied states

    35. MrGamerman001

      Looks like Mercenaries 2 predicted this.

    36. SeanP7195

      But it’s.....Democratic Socialism.....yes it is you numbnuts, and Maduro did not take over a booming economy. He took over an already failing state after the initial surge socialism gives. All I ask is that when you get your socialism and it sucks ass, don’t blame the right. We tried to warn you

    37. SeanP7195

      Let me guess. It’s not....that kind of socialism right? It’s not the socialism you want right? You kids keep telling yourself that

      There are 13 countries in which atheism is punishable by death. There are 18 countries where homosexuality is punishable by death. ALL of them are Islamic. Islamic nations rank lowest in women's rights. In fact, cruel and unusual acts of violence are regularly carried out on women on a systematic basis in these nations. Islamic nations which do not have oil as a resource are backward, both in terms of technology and economy. Most of the terrorist groups active today commit similar acts of terrorism that are in line with the Islamic doctrine and claim to do so in the name of Allah enshrined in the Koran. There are thousands of Islamic terror groups active worldwide. ISIS and al-Qaeda are just the ones that got popular. Islam demands exclusiveness. And demands domination over other faiths. This makes it incapable of adjustment and co-existence. Everyone should see these videos.

      Over populated, now there killing each other. Population control.welcome to Latin Countries, there all becoming like this

    42. Rueyful

      What this goofy individual forgot to mention, is that the whole productive apparatus of the country was destroyed due to socialism: NATIONALIZATION OF THE MOST PRODUCTIVE COMPANIES. Socialism stands for collective ownership of means of production. As such, implementing it meant ending private ownership of companies. By doing so, production ceased, Venezuela became dependent on imports. Production ceased because collectively owned and managed companies always fail. Not mentioning the point from this video. This video is not transparent and objective. The aim is not to explain why everything went wrong in Venezuela (John Oliver would be incapable of doing so anyway), but to come up with excuses yet again for socialism. Yet another failure. And keep in mind, the video doesn't even scrap the surface of the horrifying reality Venezuelans are facing on a daily basis. Not only are they losing weight, they're dying.

      If by socialist you mean government controlling the flow of all goods and services then I am definitely not that. But certain “socialist” policies like the progressive income tax, public schools, public roads, a pension system for the elderly, and single payer healthcare are the sorts of policies I like. Things that actually benefit the people.
