Liberalism Aminoro

Haiti’s 7.0 magnitude on the Richter scale was equivalent to 2,000 Hiroshima bombs exploding at the same time. He’s 8.8 Chile was 500 times more powerful or the equivalent to one million Hiroshimas, but only claimed around 800 victims. According to the scientist from NASA, Richard Gross, the tremendous cataclysm has moved the axis of figure of the Earth’s rotation by deflecting it eight centimeters, shortening the Earth days in 1.26 milliseconds. The quake was the seventh strongest of having record.

The relatively small number of victims, was due to the strength of the buildings which improved with Chilean modernization, product of the acquired wealth through economic liberalism implanted by the Chicago Boys, students of Milton Friedman, who changed the misery of the socialism of Salvador Allende by the prosperity of capitalism of Augusto Pinochet. When Pinochet left power, center-left governments that followed him, kept the neoliberal system to drive the economy. Progress and the rule of law remained constant since then. The high quality of the constructions and incorruptible media of State control that make that they comply with the strict requirements of security for your edification, prevented deaths from the quake reaching staggering around 230,000 who paid Haiti. When Allende was President inflation came to 1,000 percent. The GDP per capita was less than the Argentina and similar to that of Peru. The passage that Chileans were with socialism, today they had been living in ruinous houses or huts, as it happens in Cuba and begins to occur in Venezuela.

What Chile after the 1973 coup he was freeing the economy, reducing government expenditures and the issuance of currency. Privatized enterprises of the State, it eliminated the obstacles preventing to work in freedom opening the doors to national and foreign investment, and thereafter became the most flourishing country of Latin America. 1973-1990 Pinochet elevated Chilean per capita GDP by 40% while Argentina and Peru have stalled. His followers continued in the scheme, making its people the most prosperous in South America. Chile is the country’s less State intervention, corruption, index of infant mortality and number of people living under the poverty level. Peru learned the lesson and is nothing less than the Socialist Alan Garcia who is taking tipping to sanity. The formula is always the same, capitalism leads to wealth, socialism to poverty. There is a single case in history that evidence otherwise. However Hugo Chavez, Evo Morales, Cristina Kirchner, think they know more. South America is in the hands of some of the most obtuse decision-makers who have never really existed, with millions of followers both o more ignorant than they. If the chain of earthquakes continues across the continent and its destructive wave passes through big cities, victims can reach millions. In the majority of Latin American countries building codes are violated with bribes, which allows unscrupulously profiting from the sale of buildings of props. There are neither appropriate police services, firefighters, paramedics and hospitals, which may help the population face a disaster of great magnitude. The warning this time is not a philosopher or political intellectual, but the nature. If we want to save our lives, we will only achieve this through economic freedom and respect for the laws.
