How Bad is Venezuela? Interview with Family Fleeing Socialism
By Joe Jarvis - April 11, 2018

The uncertainty of daily life in Venezuela has made fleeing the best option. Guillermo should be enjoying retirement, instead, he is starting over.

Earlier this month I talked to a father and son from Venezuela, both named Guillermo.

Guillermo, the younger, fled Venezuela a year ago. You can read his account of how the Startup Society Foundation helped him raise Bitcoin online to buy safe passage from Venezuela to Santiago, Chile.

His father at the time of this interview was still in Venezuela. For safety reasons, I couldn’t release the interview until he, his wife, and a younger son were safely in Santiago.

Here we discuss what daily life is like for residents of Venezuela under the socialist regime of Maduro. We talk about hyperinflation and what that means in terms of working for a living, receiving a pension, and buying food.

We also talk about how the crisis has progressed, and what Guillermo is leaving behind.

Now that both Guillermos and their family are safe in Santiago, Chile, we will have a follow-up interview soon.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

    The Chileans must be thrilled with all these immigrants. And the Colombians as well. As usual it’s the intelligentsia and those with some resources that are able to skip out. A generation down the road they will be viewed as traitors, just like the Russian aristocrats who fled their country leaving the Czar who guaranteed their wealth to the verdict of a bunch of criminals.

    • Ahhh. Another person who doesn’t understand the word “refugee”.

        Ah, another person who doesn’t understand the danger of allowing those with deadly ideologies to immigrate into your country.

        • They are fleeing from the “deadly ideologies”.

          Did you find them guilty of thought crimes without putting them on trial before a jury?

    Ludwig von Mises described socialism as a philosophy of suicide and the history pretty much validates that observation. Oh, I know some Europeans and Russians will disagree but at the root of socialism/communism is the looting of A to satisfy B, i.e. it is immoral and yes, the US politicians have been commie/socialist for well over 130 years as evidenced by the fact that they have imposed parts or all of the elements of the 10 Planks of the Commie Manifesto.

    Where are all the champagne socialists now that Venezuela has imploded? Hypocritical POS leftists in the US and Canada champion socialism until it collapses yet again.

  • What is happening in Venezuela is a crime. Once the richest nation in South America, now impoverished to near starvation. Thanks Socialists.
