Good luck to you then, so sorry for being defensive, I actually am sorry , sorry for wasting my time being baited by you and your condescending patronising rant from the get go, making assumptions about people you dont know and generalisations aboout others, but as I said Ive seen it all before, sorry your not the first one to ride into town with your spiel, so yeah enough time wasted.questionsasked wrote: ↑Tue Dec 25, 2018 2:48 amMaybe I haven't been clear enough.
Chileans have asked us to help with local projects.
Maybe you don't have that kind of rapport with Chileans. Maybe you should come down off your tirade and defensiveness and get more involved with local people -- they DO need help and the US is responsible for the vestiges of their economic problems and low wages.

Do you think that Chileans deserve outside assistance?
* Instead of the constant inflow of expats who buy their land, live better than they do, get underpaid?
* Chileans have a positive outlook and deserve the know-how that expats bring to their country.
* Every expat should be required to serve the Chilean people in some way, not just by purchasing things.
* Your expat lives are self-serving, aren't they? American lawyers and investors have searched the world for the best meat for themselves and then promote these "opportunities" on the internet. Meanwhile, local people get little to no benefit.

The owner of this forum is an attorney, right? It's sad that expats in Chile think that helping Chileans is beneath them.questionsasked wrote: ↑Tue Dec 25, 2018 2:48 amsorry for wasting my time being baited by you and your condescending patronising rant from the get go, making assumptions about people you dont know and generalisations aboout others, but as I said Ive seen it all before, sorry your not the first one to ride into town with your spiel, so yeah enough time wasted.

You said: * Instead of the constant inflow of expats who buy their land, live better than they do I don´t think you are feeling well.
You said:* Every expat should be required to serve the Chilean people in some way, not just by purchasing things. Mucho COLA DE MONO!!!
I invite you to prove your assertions here. Chileans are chronically underpaid, do you deny this? They are in debt over their heads because corporations allow them to buy on credit with very high interest.
But I know many Chileans who ARE underpaid. And it's not because they don't produce. It's because they are taken advantage of.
I think Chileans are satisfied with a comfortable house, food on the table, family and a reasonable amount of extra money for some extra things.
I am concerned about the condition of homes in southern Chile and the lack of financial resources made available to Chileans for basic home improvements.
Maybe you live in the North where it's warmer. Maybe you don't know people who are struggling in Osorno, Futrono, Entre Lagos, Puerto Montt, Temuco.
I can't stand it when people say that Chileans are lazy. They are NOT lazy. They are underpaid so they don't have the motivation to work harder.
--> Do you think it would benefit Chileans to work with people who can help them with efficiency? Sustainability? Community food production and sustainable agriculture systems?
That's what my philanthropy does. It is NOT a charity, it seeks to better the condition of Chileans. They are a good people who are family-oriented. They are group oriented and could do amazing things for each other. That's why I am starting a philanthropy that will pay Chileans to help other Chileans. The only thing they need to produce is better communities, safer neighborhoods, warmer houses, better businesses and healthier people.
Do you support this?
