Any real changes can be possible only with the collapse of neo-liberals in their American nest.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Hardly any good ever came from words with a neo in front of it. Why should it be saved? , how about liberalism without the neo? 2017: Britain is a land made by liberals in which nobody wants to be called a liberal. A common practice in the US is slowly being imported into Britain. Liberal is becomi...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Why should it be saved? , how about liberalism without the neo Neo-liberalism equals globalism, with no sovereign countries -...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

On the news they are saying 1.2 million people were out. I dont know if we will ever really know.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Check out the graph comparing Chile's tax on personal income to other countries, https://data.oecd.org/chile.htm That's also very simplistic. You'd have to include a lot more factors to come up with anything resembling reality. One thing we know just from our day to day life here is that this count...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

just having a scan through the international press. woo, they realy don't get it. most are struggling to even come close to come up with an explanation about the march yesterday.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

I read somewhere that in the Soviet block countries as well as in Japan at some point in its recent past the difference between the lowest and highest paid members of society was only three times. And yet it was sufficient for them to achieve what they achieved.

As the general said, "I'm happy, I'm not war with anyone". Hope they know exactly who coordinated the Metro destruction that Friday night/Saturday morning and they make a rock solid case to persecute.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Are we over the hump now? A million plus demonstrators ...downhill from here? A US friend asked me about the stratification of chile...I guessed about thirds..33% lower class, 33% middle class, and 33% upper class. Is that close? Middle class being 30-60k usd a year? That would be a pretty simplist...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

The script with a shoot-up of a civilian crowd has been hackneyed to death by now. Preventing it would be the first priority for any self-respecting secret service who are not trying to insert themselves between the warring factions.
