Moore is stupid like a fox as he enjoys life at his Manhattan luxury condo

That the oil belongs to the people is not necessarily a problem, over 70% of the world's oil production comes from countries where that is true. I don't think that is the source of Venezuela's problems.

Belief in "government" as some sort of useful entity, never amounts to more than childish belief in simpleton caudillos presented by ceffectivelybaptive media as "heroes." It's the domain of the doomed-to-be-forever dumb.

The only thing that ever changes, is that the excuses used to justify one caudillo over another, may change a bit, depending on time and geography. But it always boils down to some idiot some Man on TV claims will "save" all "his" "people." It's so stupid you'd think a three year old would see through it by now, but perhaps it's not only Americans' intelligence you can't go broke underestimating.

I have plenty of relatives in South America who decry socialism now thanks to Chavez. May their numbers grow.

How did Gaddafi achieve it for his people/country elevating Libya to the highest standard of living, education levels, housing rate in Africa prior to the US gov't murdering him and destroying their economy? Or was that a completely different thing?

Moore is a documentary film maker as we all know. I lost a lot of faith in documentary's over the years as I came to realize they are mostly all one sided politically biased agenda hit jobs. I somehow got myself to watch his documentary in 2015 "where to invade next". What a bunch of completely phony garbage portraying European countries as these perfect Utopias. And totally 100% ignoring all the financial, economic, and immigration problems that plague the EU.

Moore, like all the socialist elites, expects to be in charge when the socialists take over.

He is not going to wait 6 weeks to see a doctor, wait 6 hours to buy some milk or give up his mansions.

That is for the little people and for their own good.

Kinda like how democrat politicians who passed obamacare specifically exempted themselves from obamacare...

How do those spouting superiority here know whether Venezuela failed due to a poor system, rather than being another victim of American regime change policy? If their bend toward socialism is weaker, why is it necessary to sanction, blockade, and deny them access to financial markets to prove it? Why not let the experiment carry out on its own?
