    • funny venezuela and cuba are not listed as 'socialist'. Only countries with white monolithic populations.hotroddy
    • also countries where you have to develop are hard work ethic or you freeze to death.hotroddy
    • In this case socialism has been made possible by technology. The same would not have worked, say, 100 years agodrgs
    • Similarly, communism is not only possible, but inevitable, when robots/AI steal all our jobs. But thats another 100 years into the future.drgs
    • @hotroddy Yes, no mention of the USA's long history of interference and attempting to disrupt the govs of Cuba, Venezuela and other Central American countries.garbage

    • garbage don't start with your anti-imperialist playbook. USA built venezuela to become the richest country in South America.hotroddy
    • if making the simple correlation that people in colder climates work harder than you clearly need to start traveling and broadening your horizons.hotroddy

    • Fact garbage is needs to apply for a passport and learn to use it.hotroddy

    • i would like to know more on how the usa built venezuela to be the richest country.dorf
    • Venezuela became an important supplier of oil to the US after discovery of oil in Venezuela.hotroddy
    • American multinationals (along with many other foreign multinationals) invested in Venezuela's economy.hotroddy
    • Thus expanding venezuela's economy beyond an agricultural based economy.hotroddy
    • and transforming Venezuela from a banana republic into south america's richest countryhotroddy
    • and today these companies don't exist after chavez expropriated them and thought he could run them himself.hotroddy
    • actually they were run by people like gargbage - well versed on anti-yankee rethoric to run it.hotroddy
    • and zero business management knowledge.hotroddy
    • Thanks for the obvious history lesson. The suggestion that I need a passport (have one) in order to learn about the South America..garbage

    • thanks for proving my point. At one American oil refineries in venezuela were processing more than 3 million barrels a day (shell 1.5 mill & exon 2 million).hotroddy
    • today venezuelan state owned company produces less than 500 thousands a day and falling thanks to the garbage that works there now.hotroddy
    • and american oil companies hired venezuelan engineers who excelled and did well. but they were all fired once Chavez took over.hotroddy
    • I mean, if you really want to go there, the driving force behind the production decrease is wave upon wave of US-imposed sanctions on Venezuela.garbage
    • They are trying to destabilize and oust Maduro. Trump has even mused about military intervention.garbage
    • https://worldview.st…garbage
    • There's a link. Be careful though, it those things called "facts" that you seem so scared of.garbage

    • the article even states that production system was plagued by widespread structural problems, poor maintenance etc.hotroddy
    • the article states that the only source of income was oil. the gov't didn't give a shit about the economy and was happy to rely on oil as it's only income.hotroddy
    • for last 20 years the gov't primary source of revenue was AMERICAN $$$$. And they still mismanaged the biggest oil boom the countries ever seen.hotroddy
    • The US banked rolled their incompetence.hotroddy
    • You're honestly too stupid to get it, aren't you? That's textbook imperialism fueled by capitalism. I don't know if you're willfully idiotic, or just a natural.garbage
    • dude use that passport do some traveling. you'll likely bump into one of the 6 millions venezuelan that had to immigrate due to the crisis.hotroddy

    • i'm just thankful there aren't many idiots like you around or we'd be experiencing a similar crisis in the USAhotroddy
    • Whines about personal attacks over facts. Facts are given, and you are obviously incapable of comprehending them. You get mad and resort to personal attacks.garbage
    • This has been a very boring wallow in some very dumb mud with a very blind pig.garbage

    • the fact the USA was the ONLY country paying full price for venezuelan crude? that the only source of income were American dollars?hotroddy
    • that western nations in south america, north america, and EU all unilaterally imposed economic sanctions as a last resort to remedy the crisis?hotroddy
    • or the fact you hate yourself, hate your country and misrepresent american foreign policy for your own ideological convictionshotroddy
    • I'm insulting you bc you’re not willing to take the time to really understand our politics and check the sources of your informationhotroddy
    • you’re not allowed to cut our story into something that fits your narrative.hotroddy
