    Hey! Venezuelan here. This made me cry for multiple reasons: 1.- The fact that someone is actually factually reporting on what happens to us and in some ways, this has been more through-rough than a lot of journalist.
    2.- Because it reminded me of exactly how bad this is, with no end on sight. :(

    Just to fact-check/expand on context: Venezuela did have a real, albeit imperfect democratic system from 58-98... The year we elected that asshole Hugo Chávez. And to be fair, plenty of people-both local and immigrants- profited: there was more social mobility and the opportunity to study, get good jobs, make a living, take care of your family, etc. Venezuela was much like the US, a migration magnet.

    And food scarcity started in 2007: milk was one of the first things to go. The thing is that because of the high oil prices is like they could keep cooking in spite of a gas leak, but eventually you rub out of gas.

    The thing about controlling of the 1 resource=control of the population is true. Is like how abusive partners will try to prevent their victims from having their own money or take away any income they generate so as to keep them subdued.

    The Venezuelan government is responsible for people not finding food, but they will SELL you boxes of government selected food for you. So, also Maslow’s pyramid: you keep people from being able to protest because they’re relying on that food box you sell them. And government officials are the ones who import that food and make money off of it.

              4:30 you meant to say head of government. Queen Elizabeth is the head of state and the prime minister is the head of government

                Good video however you missed one thing. Wakanda was a closed economy not based on trade so much of this doesn’t apply.

                  Hello, I am a Saudi citizen. Your channel has millions of followers. So if you want to say something you should look good in the Saudi, you can buy bread for one riyal. It is equal to $ 3.75. Poverty is not widespread in Saudi Arabia, and we have a system called charity. Al-Salami states that the rich must take from his money to help the poor

                                Wakanda does not sell vibranium, it is as you say an isolationist country that does not trade with the rest of the world barring rare exceptions. Which limits the importance of vibranium and lowers its value to the country, forcing them to develop other areas of their economy. They also have had the advantage historically of being the most technologically advanced area around due to their vibranium based technology, as well as the most developed socially and economically.

                                Those other countries have nothing that can be compared to the history and economy of Wakanda, they are broken states that cannot feed themselves or produce even a fragment of the goods they themselves need. Their dependance on a single resource is just one of their many problems. Nothing we have seen anywhere indicates Wakanda isn't entirely selfreliant for everything they need.

                                                          I loved the video, but my only nit-pick was that Wakanda appears to be a bit more similar to modern-day native american governing bodies. Each tribe, or in Wakanda's case: King T'Challa's advisers, has an election to vote on someone to represent them. That person represents them in the larger Wakandan government which is lead by King T'Challa.
