Post Re: The ROW thread
The time he talked about Chile prospering is when Pinochet was in charge. He's talking about the ills of socialism in Venezuela and backing it up against Pinochet.

Funny how no comment on Cuba having a lower infant mortality rate than the US, Canada & the rest of the Western hemisphere though. Which, of course, shits over the entire premise of his post.

NAFTA negotiation mess just got more interesting - Lopez-Obrador won the Mexican election:

Originally, they had treated the Mexican election as a sort of deadline, fearing this guy would win.

Castro had to kill, imprison, torture and terrorize mass amounts of his own people, then control every aspect of their lives and imprison his entire population to one island to get to this point.

Which, of course, shits over the entire premise of your post. That is a massive price to pay just to be able to brag about low infant mortality.

You bring up an article saying socialism is bad, and the proof is in the infant mortality rate comparisons of Venezuela and Syria. The actual data shows Cuba is doing better than Canada or the US, and now that article no longer suits the story you want to tell?

So tell me, why did you post it?

Only a dimwit would suggest otherwise. They have more safety nets than Canada by a long shot, no cracks to fall through, everything America isn't. It's not even worth arguing this point it's so ridiculously fucking stupid to think otherwise.

You made a statement you didn't prove or back up in any way, and then proceeded to call anyone who disagrees a dimwit. Typical liberal logic! :lol:

What exactly did I say that is in doubt and I'll happily provide evidence as I usually do.

Scandinavian countries have safety nets? Cuba is better than Canada & the US on the point Jebus was trying to make against socialism?

What exactly do you have a problem with?

The point of the article:

- In 1960, Chile had a higher infant mortality rate than Venezuela
- Since becoming capitalist, Chile has seen a constant decline in infant mortality
- Since becoming socialist, Venezuela has not seen the same improvement, and in fact, has seen a spike in infant mortality over the last decade making it worse than Syria's


All I said in addition to that is that when comparing economic governance between different nations, Chile and Venezuela are a pretty good real-life experiment, since the two countries are so incredibly similar in every other way. Looking at both nations as a whole, Chile is thriving by almost every metric compared to Venezuela.


You chose to ignore all that and instead bring up Cuba (a socialist shithole admired by the far left) and talk about how socialist the Scandanavian countries (who haven't collectivized all their industries like Venezuela has), that's a different discussion.

"Becoming" capitalist?

Hate to break it to ya, but Chile's been capitalist since the time of the conquistadors.

Even under Allende, it never actually stopped - despite America's murderous freak-out (the coop by Pinochet).

And that's what it's really about in Latin America. Not capitalism or socialism, but the degree of obedience to the United States.

I ignored all that because you ignored the fact the socialist shithole you just mentioned had a lower rate of infant mortality than Canada or the US. You can't use a single measure to say something is good or bad, and there's your proof.

Either someone is testing some shit out, these 2 were unintended victims and someone else is laying up dead somewhere, or someone is just testing shit getting ready for their next attack.

It's always a quagmire to try and untangle what goes on in the Caucasus.
Western journalists and diplomats ignore it on purpose - too difficult, too many powers involved.

Israel again confirms free speech is a myth. Free speech only applies to those with the money and power to control it. And it's only free if they agree, otherwise they legislate or sue you into silence. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/ ... om-schools

And it's hardly only happening in Israel.
