Well, that's a heck of a price to pay for economic development - human rights violations and suppression of civil liberties.

I'd hardly call Pinochet's regime liberal at all. Boy is that a skewed frame of reference.

Capitalism has not the power of create wealth to become a very poor country in Sweeden in few decades, countries like South Korea and Japan doing all right and sponsored by USA tooked 60 or 70 years to getting developed.

So we take the worst examples. Look at Haiti, Guatemala, Honduras etc etc. Oh look capitalism and democracy has failed.

For the record I am not a communist or a socialist. But I always find it disturbing how many Latin Americans always find away to defend deplorable right wing politicians. It is like people are in denial how ****ed up our societies are.
