Hello from Santiago, Chile,
If you’ve never been here, you probably have no idea what is going on. If you live in the West still, you probably can’t even understand what is going on here. It’d be like explaining a computer to a caveman. “It’s got buttons and someone, anywhere in the world will receive whatever information you want”… at that point the caveman would probably just club you out of confusion. That’s not very much different than talking to Amerikan slaves nowadays.
Everything is changing dramatically. Even ten years ago, between New York and Santiago it would be a coin flip as to what was more or less a better place. Today, the difference is stark.
Chile isn’t perfect. There are still signs that they are shaking off the cobwebs of communism. But every month I return here it is less and less.
