If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road. …I think if you look at the present state of the world, it is pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistakes. We are on the wrong road. And if that is so, we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.

At The American Mind, Pablo discusses Chile’s recent bouts of civil discord, their Red October:
What is happening in Chile—our own Red October, or nearly—is important for the American audience to understand, because you are facing the same problem.

I think the similarity to Chile was precisely this: a legitimate social discontent of the majority during the Obama era, and an almost absolute disconnect between the progressive liberal agenda and the real daily needs of the people.
