We’ve all heard about the uprisings and political mess that’s been occurring in Ukraine in recent weeks. We’ve also heard ad nauseum for about a month about how search parties haven’t been able to find the black box of an obviously crashed plane. What we haven’t heard much about — much to the shame of the Western media — is that uprisings have been occurring in Venezuela over the past couple months.

Henry Reich, the creator of the YouTube channel MinutePhysics, has become personally involved in the unrest because his illustrator, Ever Salazar, is living in Ciudad Guayana, Venezuela. Salazar has had to deal with the protests on a daily basis, and in this video he gives an excellent explanation of what it’s like to live in a country where “insanity has become normal.”
