    I guess when they complain about capitalism we could say that it wasn't true capitalism or feudalism was never tried by the right nobleman.

    It is real socialism until the starvation sets in. Only capitalists and Ukrainians starve.

    Unfortunately, Maduro's grip on power is secured for as long as there's just enough food to feed the Army.

    And when they run out of that I bet he becomes more and more like what happened in NK. Military gets whatever the barebones shit is while the great leader eats like imported lobsters and shit.

    Consider that pension in Venezuela now pays out to the equivalent of $6 a month, you can bring one hour worth of your salary down there and have the same experience as those kids on Eurotrip:

    It must be so nice to disreguard the fallacies of a historically horrible government system as 'bad management.'

    Perhaps the fact that a government has so much power over its mass population that 'bad management' can result in mass starvation and poverty, is precisely the problem.

    I'd like to hear your excuse to what happened to those scandinavian countries with unrestricted immigration in a few years.

    They're having alot of problems with the Muslim refugees flooding their system.

    Not neccessary, because it's dead-on accurate.

    Does Scandinavian countries have tight currency and prince controls? Nope.

    Go elsewhere to politicize human suffering.

    Do they also have vast militaries to protect their own country and the rest of their region?

    It's always humorous when leftists accuse others of 'politicizing,' when this is a geopolitical subject on a political forum.

    Look at the headlines on the 1st page - Thousands of Children Starving To Death - yet you leftists never stop to question the reason of the death and suffering because the answer is incovienent to your political narriatives.

    Go ahead, blame it on 'bad management.'

    ???

    Yup, and here we discuss specific things like adults, not just throw random catch-phrases to score political points.

    Im actually discussing the things that have caused the problems.

    Price controls.
    Foreign exchange controls.

    Nope, i blame it on the things that actually cause it.

    If you want to throw memes or blame it on ambiguous things go ahead, but dont get pissed when people point out the idiocy and shallowness of people like you who relish on human suffering in order to attack your political enemies who have never, ever, proposed the policies that caused Venezuela to go full Venezuela.

    Trying to use Venezuela as an example of bad European style democracy socialist system is like trying to use South Africa as an example why the democratic capitalist system doesn't work.

    Now both systems have their advantages. But there is simply no denying that if you want to enable a more significant part of your population to have a better life, Europen style systems are better.
