Politics

Mid-term Elections

I grew up in Chile during the time of Pinochet, where ‘politics’ was a bad word, and ‘politicians’ were equivalent to ‘thugs’. Even after all these years and multiple iterations of democratically elected governments, people’s involvement in democracy is just limited to general elections every 5 years. Very little occurs in between. You see, in my view, Chile is a place where the government does pretty much whatever it wants once it’s in power.
