Video: Prager U takes an up-close-and-personal look at a socialist nation

Is Bernie Sanders right? Are people living under socialism better off? Well, we have a case study: Brazil. With its abundance of natural resources, a hard-working citizenry, and peace with its neighbors, Brazil should be doing great. But it’s not. Widespread poverty, street crime, and corruption plague the country. Why? In a word, socialism.

In the video that follows, Brazilian journalist Felipe Moura Brasil explains what socialism did to his country.
