>people were protesting in front of La Moneda every fucking week
Right wingers protesting agaisnt democracy. How cute.
>looting and the black market were widespread
What you mean the Colas? of course; you can thank the truckers strike for that. The truckers strike is know to be a CIA op in chile so...
>my family lived through this
Same as mine
>and my grandparents were almost killed by some UP thugs.
I'm going to answer as your own facho groups have done before to justify the killings of children during the dictatorship: "por algo habra sido."
>Devuelvete a la UTEM comunacho de mierda
Haha I DID make you mad lol
Go back to ICEL you fucking retard.
>proceeds to repeat himself like an autist who cant fucking read despite having gotten an answer
Wew lad we know you are retarded and special but chill.
>AFPs are awesome you imbecile.
>They are usually ranked among the best pension systems in the entire world
>despite us being a much poorer country in comparison, and returns not only are greater than with the previous system
>(where half would get a nice pension of ZERO CLP per month), but actually improve the overall national economy.
>Fuck off you illiterate retard and stop falling for commie propaganda.
>"everything i dislike is communist propaganda"
JESUS were to even start.
AFPs are so shit they got flak from all sides of politics. They are worse than the previous system and inject money to the financial system becoming more and more inneficient as time goes on. "Half would get zero pesos per month"? What the fuck are you even a real person? How can you be this delusional?
The AFP system in chile is one of the worst; its woefully unregulated and is shit; only a tremendous autist/asperger contrarian would be retarded enough to support it.
>Only during the first 3 months. It was all downhill from there.
>ignoring the economical-trade credit freeze of the US agaisnt chile.
>Ignoring the effect of goods shortage due to transport capacitt freeze
Come on try harder.
>Chile already had one of the lowest poverty ratios of the region before the plebiscite was called, so that hypothesis is invalid.
Have you even read other comments?
It has already been said that the povery reduction closer to the end of the dictatorship was due to the return of investments thanks to the market reforms and increased democracy (not thanks to pinochet; but to the people who protested for these rights and the liberal right wing); debt increase by pinochet to not collapse the country like in 75' and 82' and because of the extreme efforts of local polulations to self-administer infrastructure the governement just wouldnt do.
>You first. I'm not the one claiming poverty used to be 20% in 1970, I'm claiming that such a source never existed on the first place. Feel free to prove me wrong.
All right you are right there.
>Objectively wrong. Countries like Peru and Uruguay suffered a worse crisis, and Chile later boomed faster than anyone else.
Google "Chile's GDP" you'll get a few charts showing chile's GDP compared to the trend of SA.
During pinochet the chilean economy is constantly below latin america. Chile boomed faster thanks to democracy and the left; not thanks to pinochet.
>Agreed, but it was better than the status quo at the time.
No it wasnt you fucking psychopath. How the fuck is civilian murder an option?

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Like 1,500 people died max 3000 jeez.
"Only a few people died" is not a decent argument nor a justified sacrifice. Ghese people were civilians mostly.
>Also dont allow other people to take thing that dont belong to you.
>redistribution justifies murder
>For women and children your gonna need a citation.
Valech and other reports on crimes during the dictatorship are free on google.
"Kids killed during pinochet" gives you a list of adolescents and a baby killed during Pinochet's times. There are puvlically known testimonies of women who had rats thrown into their insides and were raped by trained dogs inside torture centers. This is all public knowdlege.

>Scipio Africanus' wife because of how much she triggered Cato the Elder.
do tell!

Mainly she triggered Cato by being Scipio's wife, but like Scipio she was a philhellene, and lived a rather extravagant, though tasteful lifestyle and had more power than most women did during the mid-Republic.

But Cato the Elder kept talking about how her liberty was going to cause the downfall of Rome even after her husband's death.
Aelia Pulcheria of course for being the greatest empress in Roman history and one of the two greatest female rulers ever along with Isabella I.

Also Claudia Octavia but that's more because of waifuism brought on by how fucking sad her life was and wanting the chance to rescue her from it.
sounds familiar...

In recent years after the massive explosion of Internet media to a wider audience, (and the first air of The Big Bang Theory) more and more people started calling themself "nerd" and "geek" even if they didn't had any link with that subculture or even despise it, and slowly impose themself ( unconsciously) as the headline and rapresent of said subculture. What do you think was the cause for this? Why people started LARPing as nerd and geek, even if they despise the original ones and still do?

I can see this shit all around me but at the same time I am not American so this conception of the wierd kid who reads comics is completely alien to me(because no one reads comics here) and my parents are from the USSR, so the only conception of a "nerd" that I have is a an actual bookworm who didn't do enough physical exercise.
The main issue I have with nerd-culture types is that you KNOW that when they sat down for lunch in highschool they looked over at the kids in the corner playing card games and discussing anime and thought "look at those ugly fucking nerds." They know theres a difference between themselves and these people. Try correcting them on something or even look at some of the replies here, the animosity towards "gross ugly nerds" is pretty obvious. "Fuck you for being passionate about things, you fat neckbeard virgin! How dare you call me a fake, I've sunk so much disposable oncome into pop culture merchandise that I must be a real nerd!"
Because nerd now means something entirely different than it did 15-20 years ago. Back then a nerd was a guy who did his homework, has never seen any movie at all and probably didn't have friends either. Now a nred is someone who shills popculture stuff for free. It's another brainwashing marketing scam. It's like when they turned harmless words like "faggot" or "retard" into equivalents of the unspeakable word "nigger". Words just suddenly don't mean what they meant a few years ago.

They remained free and dominant in their kingdom for 700 years. Their skills and knowledge of war was known far and wide and appreciated or feared by all.

Spartan Hoplites were the best in greece for most of the time Sparta was a thing.

However they were limited because their generals would always get bribed and they tended to be very cautious with their forces due to helot rebellions, their navy was also complete shit compared to Athens. Their tactics were also fairly basic and their commanders were not encouraged to innovate (see brasidas)

but make no mistake their Hoplites were the best, the Athenians (and other greek states) didn't even drill or practice and were mostly militias and citizen soldiers and it was seen as lame to practice instead of just being brave and winning with bravery
I read somewhere that Spartans historically had a reputation for really peng women.

They did a really good job appealing to the values of the time. Spartaboos were everywhere, even Augustus when out of his way to visit Sparta. Times have changed though, something about the combination of forced austerity and extreme militarism seems to really trigger burgers.

>Askia encouraged learning and literacy, ensuring that Songhai's universities produced the most distinguished scholars, many of whom published significant books and one of which was his nephew and friend Mahmud Kati. To secure the legitimacy of his usurpation of the Sonni dynasty, Askia Muhammad allied himself with the scholars of Timbuktu, ushering in a golden age in the city for scientific and Muslim scholarship.

>The eminent scholar Ahmed Baba, for example, produced books on Islamic law which are still in use today. Muhammad Kati published Tarikh al-fattash and Abdul-Rahman as-Sadi published Tarikh al-Sudan (Chronicle of Africa), two history books which are indispensable to present-day scholars reconstructing African history in the Middle Ages.
