what a load of surprise coming from this user, though...

here's some reality instead of cartoon propaganda.. The Grayzone has several factual videos on Venezuela..

Mexie also made an excellent explanation of the situation .. Venezuela: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Trust the Neocons -

The us are depleting their oil ressources at record speed, venezuela has one of the largest reserves. I hold every bet that the us will go to war against venezuela within 10 years. Propaganda against venezuela is skyrocketing already. The opposing political party is funded already. Not to stabilize the country, thats for sure. The us don’t care for foreign politics, they care for oil. And if that party doesn’t allow the us to get their oil the next party will be funded. The only chance the country has with such a treasure is to get help from the only one who can protect them, russia.

It‘s iran all over again.

Germany has public schools, public transport, a gradual income tax, a high inheritance tax, the telecommunications sector used to be in state hands just 20 years ago and some other of those bullet points are met. I guess germany is a socialist country. The even call themselves a socialdemocratic republic.

The scandinavian states check even more points of that list. But hey, it‘s a comic, it is funny and it mocks bernie. Must be all true.

I see sux2bu is still submitting twisted right wing propaganda.
He laid off it for a while but is now back to his true form.
Ex CIA man John Perkins detailed how it is democracy is undermined in his book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.
This particular cartoon was produced by American Right-Libertarian animator Seamus Coughlin.
There are still today some Americans who fall for this nonsense.
The other 96% of the worlds' population don't.

#4 read the lower part of my comment. I know it‘s a lot of text, but i addressed the very first bullshit that was claimed in the video.

It starts with not being able to distinguish between socialism (which is used to some degree in most countries on the planet) and communism (which isn’t used anywhere on the planet except venzuela) the video is utter Crap. If you really want everything debunked i can go through the whole thing, if you want.

The main problem all of those propaganda morons have they don’t distinguish between the state form and how the market is regulated. That used to be the same. It is way more complicated today. China is totally authoritarian regime, but the formerly state owned companies are free and interact with the world to a degree.

Basically communism is the idea that the head of state can mircomanage everything in a country, socialsm is the idea that the idea that the state has to manage everything where the free market fails, for example health insurance or public schools.

The poorest don’t have enough money or ability to move between districts to be able to chose, so you get small monopolies where the school can drop in quality and still be the only option.

#4 sorry, did you need it in cartoon form? i linked credible journalists on the issue that have actually been down there talking to the working people.

refer to #1 again, and perhaps get your head out of your butt..
