Leftist former student has vowed to unite country and tackle poverty and inequality
“I know that the future of our country will be at stake next year. That is why I want to promise you that I will be a president who will take care of democracy and not jeopardise it, a president who listens more than he speaks, who seeks unity, who looks after people’s daily needs, and who fights hard against the privileges of the few and who works every day for Chilean families.”
Thats a pretty cool agenda and I wish Senor Boric well. However all this revolutionary talk of democracy and the "peoples daily needs" is likely to prove anathema to the United States. I wonder how long it will be before he is assassinated and a fascist dictator is installed. One whose outlook is more in tune with American thinking.
The right to self-determination does not stretch as far as Chile.
