    The sound quality is usually dreadful ( ), but I've got one with hundreds of things on. Not quite sure where they've got it from. For people like us who've done a lot over the years it's not a major issue ( )

    Thumbs up

    Did Discover and Experience and am thinking about a nice way to Immersion...

    I support the student protests in Chile and hope that more and more people will see that neoliberal policies are only making matters worse.

    Having read a little bit about it, it appears that the student movement has won the hearts and minds of the Chilean public.

    What's the Chilean economy like these days? When I was there in 2007 the place seemed to be booming from the high price of copper. If it's continuing, perhaps some of the income from high commodity prices could be well leveraged into investments like education.

    Yes, more or less, copper is in a good price.

    But as ex-colonial country :lol: the taxes are incredible low for the rich and industries, compared to other countries.
    The private companies take the copper with super-low taxes, and the same in other fields.

    So yes, compared with other similar and near countries, we are more "calm and healthy".

    A good statement, but it is (unfortunately) miles away from the mind set of almost all politicians.
    I still support the student protests in Chile, but I hope the protesters have greater aims than just themselves being able to climb up the social ladder & then being able to buy an expensive Immersion set because of their better income.
    If they fall in the trap of consumerism and the temptation of capitalism, they will lose constitutional democracy instead...

    man, that was from the first day of the protests, apologies causee I don't have the documents in english, but the education is just the most evident or first step towards changes in health, taxes, elections system, etc.

    I support the students and people of Chile.

    But I'd like to see some action against the 30 plus year tyranny of neoliberalism that has been stranguling democracy right in my backyard.
