Two different videos on Socialism – Navajo and Venezuela

I’ll start off with these two quotes:

“A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.”  (e.g.  CONTROL) – Gerald Ford

“The problem with Socialism, is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” – Margaret Thatcher

Defying a media ban, this reporter goes undercover in the one-time socialist idyll of Venezuela. Now why is that…?

In reference to the video above, for Venezuela:

Hugo Chavez giving a speech in early 2000’s
So Hugo Chavez is basically saying to the general populous… That there is no actual God and that Socialism IS GOD – this is straight out of the Communist Manifesto

Here it is from the actual book written by Karl Marx, himself, “Communist Manifesto” . IT states in the exact book, “…Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality…it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experiences…”

Continuing on with the 2nd video about Venezuela —

Local citizens in the basically the barrios interviewed – talking about the current President Nicolas Maduro (Chavez’ successor).

13:55 minute mark – on who to vote – “One’s no better than the other. At this point, we don’t even know who we’re going to vote for.  Now, this country is practically destroyed… They’ve done nothing to make us vote for them. For my part, I would not vote.”

And that is saddening to hear from a citizen in Venezuela, that they lost all faith in their governmental official or people who want to run – that they do not bother to vote.   However, let’s think critically about it… If you don’t vote – the people with the same ideology will continue to run or stay in power and your government will continue on as is and your country will remain the same.

15:00 minute mark – the irony of it all… Venezuelan gov’t says she tried to plot to kill the Venezuelan President… However, caught on camera that the gov’t supporters or officials tried to kill her…

23:48 minute mark – opposition parties staging demonstrations – Some individuals are arrested, put in prison or under house arrest because they are speaking out against the Venezuelan gov’t.  Keep that in mind – that this is not new – it happens in every Socialistic or Communistic gov’t.

Now my question to everyone out there in the United States… are we going down the similar rabbit hole into Socialism –> Communism? Or are we already there and that it’s only going to get much worse? Please think about that.

I do not want our country to deteriorate.

And please try not to be one of the people who’ve I heard say, “Everyone else did it the wrong way.”

Okay, sure let’s try that approach shall we – go ask the people who left Vietnam, who was able to flee North Korea, who left Cuba, who left Venezuela, who left… I can go on and on. And ask them WHY did they leave if “Socialism” and “Communism” is “so good.”

Yeonmi Park’s interview and story speaks volumes

I swear if the younger people want Communism because it was never “properly experienced or properly put into practice…” My goodness how about they just get a plane ticket and live in a communistic regime/country. Start from nothing in those countries, with only a few dollars or no $$ in your pockets.

And tell us then how you like it! Again don’t bring those Socialist or Communistic ideas here in the USA. We don’t need it!

Why is it that people from all over the world still want to come to USA?? Because it’s still the country that represents freedom regardless of creed, race, ethnicity, etc. We are boiling pot of everything.

Yet, however, a lot of people IN THE USA, who were born and raised here having the naivety to the rest of the world and the freedoms and things we literally TAKE FOR GRANTED is showing BIG TIME.

Her interview and story speaks VOLUMES.

What she said is true at the 6:36 minute mark.
As she mentioned attending Columbia University, our education system in the USA is now basically a propaganda – with no allowance of a debate between 2 differing opinions. Only one opinion is fact and true – all others are disregarded. That is sickening in our education system.
Looked at some others comment’s from the video – their stories speaks volumes as well.

Capitalism does not kill the environment, ignorance does!

What gives politicians, scientists, activists, and “the elite” the right to decide who lives and who dies?

Loving the environment is a good thing.

Teach our kids to love and to protect our planet is good.

But this young girl does not know what is she talking about?

“We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth,” said climate activist and Time magazine person-of-the-year Greta Thunberg before the United Nations in the summer of 2019. “How dare you!”

Wow, that seems deep. But only for shallow minded to endorse a kid to say this.

Environmental debate vs economic debate are so much different to start off with.

Has this girl work ever labored in her life? Laboring is not like you sell girl scout cookies or lemonade or activist/protester.

Does she know kids her age in the development countries have to work underage, underpaid, overtime to scrap for a living, to survive?

Life is not all about money, I agree. My life goal is not about being a billionaire or millionaire. I do not care about money. I want my family to be happy and healthy, and in the end of the day, all I need is to work hard to pay for what I make me happy. We all need income for paying bills, for doctor visits, for clothes, for foods, basic life needs.

Kids in America are seriously spoiled. They may have a job at 16 yrs old but they do not know the real meaning of laboring. They grew up with all shoes/clothes/foods and endorse Socialism. Do you know even know what Socialism is? Don’t you see millions of people fleeing their communist/socialist countries to be in USA for a better chances – capitalism? They don’t just flee their countries for fun.

If Socialism works, why don’t the whole world move to those countries to live but are instead moving to USA?

And do you have any ideas for being poor? Growing up in a slums? Scrapping for a living? Struggling daily just to keep to have something in your stomach so that you can keep on working/fighting for survival? Struggling to have clothes just to cover yourself and to stay warm.

Before you talk about “what food do you like?” “what clothes do you like?” those poor people they don’t have that fancy choices, they talk about “what food I can afford?” “what clothes I can afford?”

Workers – in a coffee shop in Vung Tau, Viet Nam – are throwing bags of garbage into the oceans

And for those poor people who are suffering in the yucky socialism economic system of their yucky communist/socialist countries, go ask them about how much they care about environment? They can’t afford time and thoughts for those fancy topics because they’re too poor and tired to surviving their lives let alone thinking of others’ lives. Those people normally are selfish, low awareness – for what I saw as I was born and grew up in one of those poor countries – but to them, they don’t care.

I grew up hating those people, I think they are killing the world. But then I started to have a job, I started to labor, day by day, I seem to see where they come from. I still don’t agree with their behavior like tossing trash in the ocean, littering, no garbage classifying, trash/bottles/plastics to the oceans. But I believe that if their countries provide better economic opportunities, if they can live a life like how we live in USA, we can start to sit down and discuss environmental care with them.

35 million people rely on the Citarum river on the island of Java, Indonesia, but it has become a toxic river of waste.

So, in short, that young activist girl and all the people behind her are very ridiculous to me for saying Capitalism kills the environment.

Get yourself some education, read more, do more research, get more degrees, get a job, get a career, where you can be helpful for the society, where you can make an impact. You have a choice. And the choice is yours. Be the change you want to see. Don’t just live in the shallow with all your ridiculous judgmental opinions and ask the world to rotate the way you want. Don’t be silly!

No waste separation here
