It begins as a pro-communist propaganda piece on how socialism didn't do nothin' wrong and real communism has never been tried. It gets good later on, as there are legitimate concerns actually being shown.
You can thank events featured around this time, and the fucktardedness that followed, for plunging 90% of the population into poverty.. and I'm not exaggerating. This is the wealth-generation of socialism.
aka Chávez: Inside the Coup
- 6:00 -- Free them from a free market, free them from wealth.
- 7:00 -- They keep using "neo-liberal", but they must mean something different there than what it means elsewhere.
- 8:30 -- Wow, this is pretty dishonest stuff.
- 9:00 -- Aah, they are worshippers of a murder and rapist.
- 10:30 -- Yes, "any citizen" as long as they're staff members. People don't realise that it doesn't even have to be the actual person in power that initiates such dishonestly, and that it is their underlings.
- 11:15 -- Jesus fuck this is socialist dishonesty. So she's a plant who's there to talk the talk and convince everyone else that their land should go to the government. They would later start stealing businesses, leading to them leaving.
- 13:30 -- "I need"..
- 17:00 -- Oh my, think of the children..
- 20:30 -- So his grandfather was a murderer who went on the run and stayed a killer.
- 21:30 -- Historical revisionism, and he looks off camera as he lies.
- 22:45 -- So she's admitting that she's interested in politics because she wants free stuff.
- 26:30 -- He's right, wealth doesn't belong to a minority, it belongs to the people who earn it, who happen to be in the minority.. whoops. Addressing that shouldn't involve
murderingappropriating, but opening (equality of) opportunity; which a free market with limited government interference (regulation) does, but which socialism sucks at. It's solution is to play robin hood, obliterating private sectors then scattering the carcases like bird seed to the poor. Then the productive-minority stop being so productive, because they are dis-incentivised by being robbed, and everything spirals down.
- 26:45 -- A government takeover of oil is a fascinating problem; what happens is that it kicks out corrupt management and replaces it with corrupt management that leadership or its underlings take a cut from. Again, the corruption doesn't have to be at the top, or even known by leadership, but it'll happen and the only solution is competition -- a free market -- whoops.
- 28:00 -- I love the "this is evil" music.
32:45 -- Is this the one where there was gunfire coming down from a bridge?
- 34:15 -- I think maybe it is, and no that wide shot wasn't shown.
- 55:45 -- Are you fucking kidding me that this documentary crew was on site for all of this?
- 59:30 -- Holy fuck this disorganization is sad.
- 1:04:30 -- What island?
- 1:11:30 -- He was the major promoter of the constitution, tilting this ever so embarrassingly toward the awkward "I'm in power because my constitution says I am."
1:11:45 -- Popol Vuh (my subtitles have a typo)
