Haha what a thread. A textbook example of the White Savior complex.
yea, i have let the thread stand because it was mildly amusing.

always fun to watch people declare their anti-racist, Anti-imperilist , anti-whatever as they jump head first in to doing exactly what they say they are trying to stop.

The ships from the spanish crown were loaded with people with the same idea, 'we are going to save these poor people from themselves for their own good'.

Wrong.....Wrong...The spaniards came looking for gold and silver. They could not give a damn about the soul of the natives. Why spread fantasies ? And if I remember some history they had quite a discussion about the natives having or not having a soul.

i think that you are blessing people with this forum but that your opinions are often disturbing and seek to humiliate others. you should rethink that approach for your own good in life.

You haven't lived here even for a couple of years but already "not impressed with the way Chileans think and behave". Statements like this demonstrate your hubris-fueled cultural imperialism — no wonder you've met only shitty expats. For example, I always avoid first-world immigrants who have attitudes similar to yours.

You are still a guest in this country, with little knowledge of the culture or history. So you are not in position to judge or give advice. Spend a decade or so on integration and then we'll talk. Until then, show some respect to your hosts — as any immigrant should do.

your probably right. it was more along the lines of, 'just in case they have soul, and we kill them for their gold and silver, so we don't ourselves go to hell, let's try and pretend that we tried to save their souls. if they don't convert, then it is on them".

in guatemala the american evangelicals would come down, mostly from the midwest and southern u.s., and do some of the crasiest things. some were fairly harmeless. one of my favorites was the guy from texas running around behind two mormon missionaries handing out flyers to anyone they talked to on the evils of the mormon church. guess they sort of neutralized eachother in that case.

but the one that sticks in my mind after all these years is the compounds.

they would convince poor indians from the mountains, tell them they would have all the food, clothing, health care, etc if they lived inside their "community".

the "community" had a 20 foot high wall, with raiser wire, guard towers, and they were never allowed to go outside.

latin america has more than sufficient "help" from americans.

you could use this forum to advance the cause of the chilean people. do you think you do that already?

Given the history of Latin America I think Chileans do a reasonable job of advancing their own causes. It's just done differently to other places, culture again. Though I'm not sure which particular "cause" you're referring to. It seems you imagine they need to be raised up somehow, a concept the vast majority of Chileans would be insulted by, especially coming from a gringo/a.
Chileans are already aware of the difficulties they face as a developing country and the changes I've witnessed in the last 5+ years are real progress.
