Video: Lessons from Venezuela

August 12th, 2016 · No Comments

While I rarely report on International news, I came across this great video about how Venezuela descended into chaos. It shows how government corruption gave rise to Hugo Chavez who then started nationalizing businesses. Narrator Erick Brimen makes an interesting point: “Venezuela had a democracy, constitution, you know, division of power in government but people were not educated in the principles of freedom and they vote for whoever promises more.” It’s a worthy 7 minute watch.
