Rare Earth : As horrible and hard to digest as some of these stories may be, they're made possible entirely by viewers like you. Thank you.

Justin Y. : * Looks at video title * *What?*

Mycel : sedation and electric shocks to torture, brainwash and enslave people? secret executioners for pinochet? anti-communist cult, running over 35 years with continued government support before and after the american-sponsored coup? it's not just me seeing CIA written all over that project, right?

Steve Evans : Whilst I'm familiar with various South American Nazi refuges, this is the first I have ever heard of this one. Quite simply, Wow. Not in a good way obviously. It's a sad state of affairs that I'm rarely shocked at the depths to which humans can descend, but congratulations Mr Schäfer, your depravity has shocked me. What a pity that you lived such a long life, you should have been strangled at birth. Many thanks for making this video.

Francisca Ugalde : I remember the summer of 97 or 98, being in a family vacation down in the South - as we call it here in Santiago - and how my cousins and I used to scare each other saying “don’t you know Paul Schafer is missing? He’s going to come and get you in the middle of the night!”. He was a Boogeyman of sorts. We knew he had done something ‘bad’ to kids but obviously the adults didn’t told us the details. Years later I, and many other Chileans, came to understand the extent of the atrocities that happened in Colonia Dignidad. Thanks for shining a light on it, the episode is superb as always. PS: I wanted to add that the ex colony, now Villa Baviera, is truly doing good, and they have a line of very good cheeses and charcuterie that is sold country-wide. Very hard working people.

Brent Braniff : This one brought me to tears. Unbelievable. Thank you so much for your work.

js790 : This channel deserves millions of subscribers.

AlucardNoir : ...this was... powerful, extremely so. Some stories need to be told and I'm afraid most media has no interest in telling them. Please don't stop making these.

Nick : *See title* You know what? I think I'm good. Imma skip this one. *a few hours later* Goddammit fine I need to know what that title is about

merdufer : The only word in the title that wasn't horrifying was "The."

takineko : I doubt he believed in God. He just uses the faith people have in the Lord to manipulate people.

Claire Poirier : title was a rollercoaster

net81j : I remember an advice, "When somebody tells you there really is an Utopia, it probably is a Trap!"

Sam Shrimpton : Wow, that was powerful. Not familiar with the History of South America or the Nazi’s that escaped Germany after world war 2. Fascinating and horrifying at the same time; but really well handled. One of your best videos to date!

Autumn Akins : It makes me angry, so-called Christian's giving true Christ-followers a bad name. But even more, it makes me angry that a human could do such things to other humans.

Vlad Barbieru : And there's yet people who still support Pinochet, because to these people communism is less desirable than nazi pedophilic rapists. Because the suffering of people is nothing as long as you can make some helicopter jokes.

Matías Vásquez : Hey, I'm chilean and I've been watching all the videos that you've filmed here, liked every single one so far. I think those were the most obscure years in chilean history, no doubt about it. Such a beautiful landscape ruined by those events. I'm really hoping you film one about Mapuche people, so you can show more of their culture and the beautiful chilean patagonia.

ZBlu : By far the best show on YouTube, truly moving.

bL1X : If you're interested, there was a movie about this called 'Colonia'. I think it was last year. It's good.

darkhayou : The title has four words you don't really want hanging out together.

gmmapwihin : Holy shit, Chile is beautiful .

Bananenstaude007 : Was Schäfer really a Nazi? I think he was just a selfish loser who knew how to take advantage of other people. This is a brief summary of his life, before he fled to Chile in 1961. It is based on German sources, please comment if anything is incorrect. I found out about this story recently and was surprised he lived just a 3 minute drive away from my home town: Schäfer lost one eye as a child and could not join the Wehrmacht as a soldier in WWII, but he worked as a paramedic in occupied France. When the war was over, he worked as a youth leader for the Catholic Church. But when they found out he was abusing children and punishing them in sadistic ways, he was dismissed. Of course, the church did not report anything to the police. He then went on to preach in other Protestant churches and later built an orphanage in Heide (Siegburg). It was funded by the state and by the money Schäfer earned from letting the children work without any salary. By 1961 he had quite a big group of people and especially children under his control. When he was accused of raping two children the same year, he fled to Chile, taking about about 150 children with him. What I find hard to understand, is that he must have had quite some help from the German government. All of the children that followed him were allowed to leave, also those who still had parents. Schäfer was able to charter a plane and bring them all to Chile. And when some years later, children escaped from the colony to the German embassy in Chile, the embassy just called Schäfer to pick them up.

Antonio. : Chile is a beautiful country, with an horrible past conformed of people who thought that their ideology were above everything, including peoples life, no matter what.

John Early : When I launched YouTube with the intent to show my own uploads to a bunch of guests and this video was the very first one on the top left corner of the page... well, it was beyond awkward. Possibly the most embarrassing moment of my life. The good news is that the only way I could think to explain the vid (and reassure my guests that I hadn’t been searching for some bizarre intersection of kiddie porn and Stanley Kubrick movies) was to show a quick “top five” Rare Earth vids, and let the works speak for themselves. I think everyone understood, but I’m not sure. As for this video, with its nearly unclick-able title, I gathered my courage and watched (great vid, as usual) and so far the police have not come knocking.

Chicken McNugget : If /pol/ started a cult

Dykthemonkey : Loved the video. Btw, If you ever do come to South Korea, may I suggest looking into the many religious cults we have here. I think you'll find them interesting and horrifyingly absurd.

Daminkz : I can't believe last year in Chile we had a presidential candidate who is the grandson of a runaway nazi, whose whole family was involved with Pinochet's dictatorship, and who profeses an extreme ideology of conservatism and fascism. I can't believe he actually got 8% and formed an oficial political party. AAAAGH people never learn.

Snowball Effect : sounds like the alt-right's ideal ethnostate.

Brian Garrow : And to think that I argue with people who idolize Pinochet and use his murder techniques like helicopter rides to eternity as a thumbnail image. We are truly a questionable species.

Artem Vovk : From 8:13 to the end is what makes your content so special: always going deeper, making the history of a place come alive, and putting the audience into that history.

numgun : "Sponsored by Ubisoft, play Farcry 5 today!" I'm just kidding, but Ubisoft did run an advertisement campaign that marketed their game based on cults and their indoctrination, saying how horrible they are to their victims. Since its still so recent I couldn't help but mention it.

jobobminer schmidt : umm, Billy Graham had nothing to do with the religion you mention here. People with the same beliefs as Billy were actively repressed in Nazi Germany.

BangDroid : It is so courageous what the survivors did. Not running, and transforming a place of horror into a place of peace. This truly moved me.

The Revolting Man : How do you draw a connection between the religion of Billy Graham and Jim Jones?

Benoit Bvg : Must've been REALLY hard attracting those first few tourists...

Arkone Axon : "The closest thing this world has to pure evil." A Nazi turned out to be evil? How shocking!

Charlie Clumsy : That title is probably the oddest and most interesting title I've read this year.

Jeremiah Burrows : I would like to see the evidence of the similarities in doctrine between Jim Jones and Billy Graham. Jim Jones claimed to be Jesus and then the Antichrist then killed his followers. Billy Graham claimed that salvation could only come by putting trust in Jesus for salvation. While the ignorant would claim the blanket name of Christianity is enough similarity to compare them, doctrinally there's very little that is similar.

Deceptive Whale : These kinds of stories always make me feel literally ill. Because I'm Irish I have heard quite a few of these kinds of stories. It's important that they get told. Thanks for sharing.

Ixian Technocrat : Nazi's seem to try to outdo their predecessors in being evil.

M J : I don’t like how he calls them right wing, as it’s the same label that they put normal conservatives under, therefore making stupid people think we are just as bad as these monsters

MpowerdAPE : Evangelicals are morally bankrupt, beware.

Tracy Goodlett : Great video, one of the best in a while.

Catalina Plaza : And still people say Pinochet did nothing wrong. Amazing video as always, made me tear up a little.

Tactical Newfie : Israel is modern naziland, oh the irony.

Andre Vieira : That's some Alex Jones title

Jimmydog : Putting billy Graham and Jim Jones in the same sentence is a bit of a stretch.

Evan Fields : Just found your channel. For some reason the YouTube algorithm thought 'Nazi Pedophile Apocalypse Cult' would be in my wheelhouse. Great production on this incredibly sad story. I'm now subbed to Rare Earth

RUSKY BIAS : There was no rape in the "brainwashing packet" of Nazi Germany but still...

Micah : i've always had such an interest in cults and as a jewish man and victim of sexual abuse in my childhood this is one i've shockingly never heard of. thank you so much for this video! it seems i'll be doing a lot more research on villa baviera after the interest you sparked.
