    We all know the ruinous state of Venezuela currently. It is a blood bath with people eating out of garbage cans. And we all know what led to this, a socialist regime hell bent on "equality".

    So what exactly happened? I've heard all kinds of stories from people about this. I've heard that it was really the US who caused the regime to fail to Venezuela not embracing the right kind of socialism, etc.

    However, my main critique about such answers is that leading up to the Venezuela debacle there does not seem to be one word of concern or dissent about Venezuela from the Left. In fact, it is just the opposite, nothing but praise was given to the socialist regime.

    Why then does the Left continue to listen to those who are obviously the blind leading the blind?

    No, it is sanctions that caused hardship in Venezuela. You are swallowing the propaganda line.

    Seemingly US citizens eat of trash cans as well...

    So, I’m not exactly sure it’s a socialist thing.
    Indeed, socialism would sort of feed and take care of the masses, wouldn’t it?

    So what you are telling me is that Venezuela is dependent on capitalist trade?

    Interesting.

    This video explains everything.
    A dumb country that thought oil would pay for everything because oil prices were high.
    Then they decided to make private ownership illegal.
    They also relied on imports instead of making their own products.

    Oil prices dropped and Venezuela is no more 😉
