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?

js790 : This channel deserves millions of subscribers.

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

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

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.

Bolt : Why does this channel not have 5+ million subscribers, these videos are so well done. It’s upsetting they don’t get more views. I guess the best art usually isn’t the most popular.

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

Claire Poirier : title was a rollercoaster

Rodrigo Galilea : the Pinochet's coup was in 1973, not in the 74. Small mistake that does not hinder the video, but it shrieks in the ears of a Chilean

Andre Vieira : That's some Alex Jones title

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

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.

Rex McCoolguy : 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.

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

Kayraaa2 : Dude, I know enough things about 4chan. Thanks anyway.

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

JP Hiway : I always genuinely enjoy & appreciate the content this channel provides.... but this by far is this best episode ever presented. The way you approach sensitive topics but can still thoroughly exhibit the rawness of any given subject matter is absolutely captivating. Thank you!

León Kohon : One of the darkest spots in our country's history. Great video, Its strange to enjoy aesthetically a video about such a sad subject, but life is a dichotomy by itself, and so is art. Amazing work as always!

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!

Pengi 777 : Far Cry 5 in real life

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.

ruks : The title sounds like a WSJ article about Pewdiepie

Haberd : That's one hell of a title!

TheSucread : That's really heavy episode. This channel is needed.

Bill Wilson : I thought this was gonna be about /pol/

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

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.

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

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.

Rob Burgess : So not the Paul Shaffer from the Letterman band. Whew.

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.

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.

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

گایوس اکتاویوس تورینوس : it's alarming to think that the man responsible for this had to wake up every morning and somehow reconcile what he was doing as righteous. people don't do things for the sake of being evil. he must've genuinely believed he was acting by some authority's just design.

Wonderwaffle Mapping : Wow, this taught me something new! More ww2/pre war facts to torture my friends with. Goodjob!

Chicken McNugget : If /pol/ started a cult

slicedtoad : Damn. The horrors of the not-so-distant past are so hard to wrap your head around.

Lewis Massie : I'm shocked that I've never heard of this place. How many more like this exist, known to the universe but not to any person.

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.

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.

lil slav : Holy shit, Chile is beautiful .

Gsteroids 911 did bush : Legit cried watching this. Thank you for spreading the word Rare Earth.

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.

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.

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