Okay, Pinochet is a criminal of course, but I've been thinking, if Corvalan and Gladys Marin took over, would they have killed more people than Pinochet or less. Not obvious, right?

No, fyi, I hate Pinochet and the kind of guys that like him, and the kind of guys that supported him. 

Pueblo desunido es siempre aburrido.

This was not a purely Chilean story. More like a part of the US-USSR proxy war, which always got very bloody (Nicaragua, Angola, you name it). It's pointless to guess what would happen "if it weren't..."

"Communist" Ortega family controls up to 70% of Nicaraguan business. This is the most probable face of a Latin-american communism. Or Maduro-like, with moderated violence and a very short prospective.

Ben Shapiro's stance towards our 2016 elections (neither candidate meets my minimal moral standards) was not exactly an option in Pinochet vs Allende.

Размышлизмы, типа такого, не приводят ни к каким результатам.

Больше, даже не сомневайтесь. У коммунистов это первое дело - народишко поубивать.

Pretty obvious to me - way more. Look at the Koreas. When they separated, South was not a very democratic society. They got there though. Not ideal, but in tune with what's going on in other places. Compare to the North.

It is almost certainly true.

At the same time, there is a big difference between "happened" and "did not happen".
