Venezuela is struggling because we sanctioned the shit out of them. Tried to force them into buying American petrol. Now we were trying to install Juan Guido so that we could have another puppet government. Maduro is shitty but he was democratically elected.

@Hogwire but it really wasn’t the US’s fault to begin with. Sanctions are the only way you can get borderline dictators like Maduro to listen. Most of Venezuela’s problems started in the Chavez days but they eventually came full circle
Hogwire 7 ਦਿਨ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
@Pin head According to the Soviets they were elected. By the soviet people. They also said they were soviet. Why are you taking the soviets at their word when they say they are socialist, and not when they say they were democratic? How do you feel the soviets embodied socialism, beyond simply claiming that they did. I'm not saying the soviets weren't dictators. We agree they were not democratic, event though they said they were. My point is that the soviets were also not socialist, even thought they said they were. Venezuela got fucked because they didn't want the US to have control of their oil. Now, because they are not playing ball, the USA is imposing sanctions and deliberately causing starving among the venezuela population. The notion that all of this is the fault of the Venezuela government only is US propaganda.

@Hogwire Venezuela was fucked even before sanctions were imposed. Sometimes sanctions have to be imposed to get dictators like Maduro to listen. Also Soviets aren’t Democratic because they didn’t even have elections not even sham ones like Venezuela or Belarus. You can’t tell me the Soviet Union wasn’t a dictatorship

I have enjoyed John Oliver's progressive look at serious problems and find that people do seem to listen when his comedic style gets the point across. However, once I watched this episode on Venezuela I have lost all respect as this episode is so full of falsities that I can see that this show is now being controlled by government propeganda. As someone who has friends in Venezuela who assure me that this leader is a good man who does not want the greed of corporate American to destroy his nation. Also there are many congress members who have openly supported financing a coup in Venezuela as the current leaders won't play with the US who want nothing more than to steal their oil resources again at the cost of human suffering and death. This episode is pure propeganda to get the people to agree on US military intervention (AGAIN). Its called "MANUFACTURED CONSENT" SHAME ON YOU.. you have lost an avid fan.

The US government does NOT want a socialist country to be a good example to the world.

Why venezuela hasn't changed yet to democracy? Theres alot outside countries interests to keep it that way so they can extract oil precious minerals and drug storage. These countries are most communists like china russia cuba. They need the resources to keep it on so they supply with weapons equipment and cheap food supplies to venezuela so their people can have it free and they shutup. The only problem whyvstil like that is cause of cuba interest the cubans make sure it stay like that they got rid of hugo chavez to replace him by one of his own ( Nicholas maduro) dont forget thst cocaine also flows from cuba to usa Florida so cuba needs venezuela to trade with russia and china in the drug business. People dont realize most cubans launder their drug money in usa florida businesses. Thats how they made their empire in south florida. How do you get rid of Communist in venezuela? Cocaine supplies must be cut to venezuela. Colombia60% ecuador10% peru80% bolivia50% brazil5% Guyana1%. No supplies no interests money laundery will decline slow. Oil is limited since tesla will adquire battery technology that will replace fuel combustion engines oil sales will also decline by 40% no supplies for money laundery no more communists in venezuela🇻🇪

John, I really resent this show. It's fake news and propaganda being spewed by a comedian who should get your facts right instead of supporting American propaganda. I'm so pissed off that I may never watch your show again. USING PROPAGANDA TO RIDICULE A LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT THAT AMERICA IS KILLING CIVILIANS BY THE THOUSANDS WITH THEIR CRUSHING SANCTIONS AND THEFT OF THEIR RESOURCES. By the way John it's 2020 now and Maduro is still president after an election that was monitored by the United Nations and even Jimmy Carter supports as fair and open. Yet the persecution continues even using a naval blockade to prevent any goods from being delivered. What you did with you vicious attack on Venezuela was the most immoral thing possible. American attempts at regime change and sanctions and naval blockades are the ONLY REASON VENEZUELA IS SUFFERING. Do you still believe Maduro is illegitimate? WAKE UP!!!

WORMS IN YOUR BRAIN!!! That is the absolute best answer to some fake journalist pumping out propaganda. CLASSIC!!! John the ONLY REASON Venezuela is hurting so bad is AMERICAN SANCTIONS AND ATTEMPTS AT REGIME CHANGE. They were doing fine until the Americans stole all their gas stations which were all across America and Britain stole all their gold. America put sanctions on them that forced them into starving. Get it right. America is preventing anything from being sold to them and even increased sanctions during the pandemic. They are prevented from even buying medicine because America has blocked them from buying anything by blocking them from using the SWIFT system which is the only way to buy anything from any other country. GET IT RIGHT!!! NO MORE SPEWING AMERICAN PROPAGANDA!!! Your clips of riots are just a few mostly white people while the people come out by the thousands in support of Maduro. American hypocrisy is boundless. They claim to be supporting democracy by trying to oust with both sanctions and several failed attempts to murder the legally elected President Maduro the legally elected president and trying to install a puppet president who has never even ran in an election for president.

You report on the U.S. killing children for a nickle, then you eat U.S.propaganda on Venezuela as if it didn't have a program with its oil company to give heating oil to senior citizens in the U.S. for free something the U.S. seems to not think is important, or have food programs for its own poor and free health care something the U.S. also doesn't think is important. And, you mentioned oil which is controlled by Their government and not by U.S. or European private companies and their money is not controlled by the private world bank, all things that the richest people don't like enough to use propaganda against. So, thanks Oliver for being a tool for the greedy to destroy a struggling democracy from whom America could learn a lot. Actually fuck you by the way.

John Oliver is very intelligent, but I can´t explain why he missed the private venezuelan sector´s responsability (businessmen) in this situation, with its boicots and manipulation of the supply. And I´m not even talking about corruption and threats to the same democracy they plead they defend. It´s the same in every corner of this continent, it´s time for John Oliver to finally aknowledge how conservatives and people with money treat the rest of us. Only Chile, Argentina and Guatemala suffered from the american colonial initiative? The US has no fault in all this? Come on lad, grab a thicker history book. Shall we tell him the US government tried to take to the executive chair by the force, some *sshole who didn´t even win the elections in Venezuela? What about the blockage, or the media lobby coming from America to the rest of the continent? This was filmed before that, I hope he finally understood a thing or two about the american foreign policy. PD: antichavistas, a ustedes no les cree nadie, se sabe que sus razones no son ni buenas ni puras sino que pretenden perpetuar el status quo de pobreza y miseria que ya imperaba con el típico capitalismo latinoamericano. Lo único malo de la inmigración venezolana en Argentina, es la cantidad de nabos de derecha que lloran hambre habiéndose pagado un viaje de varios cientos de dólares, y trayendo guita para ponerse un local o manejar un UBER recién comprado. Nadie les cree. Lamento la imbecilidad de Maduro, pero más la de ustedes.

Canada has universal healthcare and their economy hasn't collapsed. Bernie Sanders is not trying to turn the US into a socialist country. But this for-profit, private insurance based Healthcare system has failed America since the AMA bribed Congress to use its model in the 50's. The greed of Big Pharma, health insurers, and corporate care lobbyists has payed off our legislators to keep a system that leaves millions without insurance and tens of millions with insurance they can't afford to use. Every other country has realized long ago that the profit motive in healthcare is fiscally untenable. It allows a few wealthy individuals to hoard vast amounts of cash while the rest of us go broke any time we get a catastrophic illness or injury. Big Pharma and corporate care interests have enjoyed seeing industry virtually free of the free market competition that's supposed to keep prices down. They lobby Congress against regulations and in favor of anti competitive measures which make American healthcare non transparent and the most expensive in the world. We pay twice what other developed countries pay for care, and multiple times that for drugs. Big Pharma pays Congress to block foreign competition and sensible price restraints. Canadians enjoy much greater economic security and job mobility than Americans because their healthcare is regulated and taxpayer funded. The AMA and Big Pharma want to monopolize Healthcare and keep pocketing a huge percentage of what we spend. With the insurance industry, they take 50¢ of every dollar spent. Federally regulated healthcare would increase the efficiency by keeping that money out of their pockets and put it towards actual care and medicine. And EVERYONE would be included in a TAXPAYER funded scheme. Cost projections for the current system over there next ten years suggest we'll spend 46 trillion dollars on healthcare. That's quite a lot more than the 37 trillion it would cost for the Sanders Medicare For All program. Under Sanders, tens of millions who can't afford care and medicine will be included. Having this style of healthcare will NOT make the US a socialist country. In fact, most countries with this kind of healthcare still have capitalist economies. Corruption in the US gives us a current capitalist system which is a fixed market with limited competition to ensure high corporate profits. Big corporations have bribed Congress to limit consumer rights while protecting those corporate profits. Consumers and patients get screwed under this system which loots from the middle class. Corrupt Republicans and Establishment Democrats in Congress no longer vote in the best interests of human beings. They vote to make billionaire and corporate profits higher, and their taxes lower. They vote to keep themselves in power. Congress is now a get rich quick scheme for wealthy elites who have no idea what it's like to try to live on minimum wage. More and more Americans who can't afford healthcare, also can't afford rent and food. During Covid 19, thousands more Americans are standing in line at food banks because Congress has failed to pass stimulus packages designed to bridge the temporary gaps in employment between now and the end of the pandemic. Donald Trump could care less about working class Americans too. He's done nothing to help and everything to support billionares and corporations getting richer, if that's even possible. We need to end the corrupting influence of corporate money in Congress before the economy looks like Venezia's. This economy is a feedback loop, and if the Middle Class keeps getting degraded, there will be a massive constriction or depression. Wall Street is addicted to money, and no amount makes these greedy billionaires happy. They would see this country go down in flames as long as they keep making money in the meantime. During the subprime crisis they cost the taxpayers TRILLIONS of dollars. You wouldn't hear them screaming "socialism" when they were crying to Obama to bail their asses out with taxpayer money. But they're okay with corporate welfare and socialism as long as they're getting rich. It's an obvious hypocrisy, and we have to stop them from getting rich on our dime.

OK. Hopefully what I say will give all of you.....hope. We need universal worker cooperatives to satisfy all collectivists out there and universal DIY maker activity to satisfy all the individualists out there. OK, I understand, it will take some time to achieve big goals like this, and equilibrium economics (rather than demand-side or supply-side) has never been tried before. But it's worth a try. America can do anything if we just put our hearts and minds to it. You've got to admit, those would be some of the best ways to maximize all of ourselves. If the federal government or local initiatives or whoever tried to incentivize these types of activities more, more people would be leaders and less people would need to use the safety net that governments and community service groups provide.

This has nothing to do with national mis-management, and everything to do with a trade war started and prosecuted by the United States.
