Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of this book, which examines ones tendency towards reform without changing any basic substance. The authors examine the crisis of participation in the context of a tutelage democracy. They investigate Concertación expertise in co-opting or criminalizing popular movements instead of joining strength with them to the end of managing parliamentary approval for substantial change. The authors explain how Chilean politics became delinked from popular movements and how the political class has betrayed its political bases and how neoliberalism has atomized them. And they explain how neoliberalism was there to deal with the large majorities even as there was state interventionism in favor of big capital. Moreover they will explain how democracy was built without the Chilean people and how it turned its back on them. The authors also coincide in vindicating the great achievements made during the brief Popular Unity government under President Salvador Allende.

Keywords:Chilean people; Concertación; neoliberalism; tutelage democracy
