Piñera's coalition (Chile Vamos) is in the driver's seat for the next two years. The left doesn't have enough seats in Congress to sack Piñera or force a new constitution to be written. Chile Vamos has close to 50% in both chambers of Congress, so with some astute negotiating and deal-making, they should be able to get some legislation through. This hasn't been a priority in recent years for many of the politicians, but things have changed.....there's a sense of urgency now that wasn't generally present before this most recent round of protests started.
My feeling is also that this strengthens the government and gives them the next presidential elections. They just need to pack away the 6400 rabid dogs or whatever that number is. I've no idea what takes them so long.

What's the point of unseating the government?
Excellent response.What do you think it's all about then, a $30 fare increase that nobody pays anyway?

If the government were deposed there won't be elections of the kind you seem to assume will happen.

Then? :) You're the one who's gone through the trouble of making the chart. Might as well complete it - as you see it.

Its complete already. Added an additional comment to help your understanding.

As for the why, if it's not obvious, read back a few pages.

So what's the end game here, in your opinion?

Do a diagram showing your ideas then instead of all this cut and paste sniping!
Or edit mine. I used MS Paint.

So was your chart moving the discussion forward or just regurgitating things anyone could have read a few pages back? I'd appreciate if you could repeat what's obvious to you about the end game here.

I would appreciate it if you would come up with something sensible to say.

Judging what's sensible is a rare talent. Enjoy your day, eh?

As my income has virtually disappeared due to this situation, have had plenty of time to analyse , so produced this Mickey Mouse chart.
Haven't managed to find a place for the Jehovah's Witnesses, Scientologists or the Illuminati yet..... :D

Note the mult-prong nature of the attack. Nothing spontaneous about it.
