Episode 5: Venezuela and the Imperialist Hypocrites

In this episode of On Mass, I briefly explain why I haven’t released any episodes in the past little bit, as well as provide my take on Venezuela and America’s recent attempt to oust the Maduro government in the classic capitalist-imperialist way. I also explain why I think the Leftist government of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) has been struggling with its internal class contradictions since they assumed power in 1999. The first half of the episode gives a brief overview of some of the internal class contradictions at play, and the latter looks at the false and hypocritical imperialist rhetoric that is being spouted in order to overthrow the Leftist government of Venezuela. This episode is a brief explanation of some of the dynamics at play in the conflict and is by no means a completely comprehensive analysis of the situation.
