At that time, as an independent politician, he openly celebrated the Pinochet Last Database character of his project. For example, he declared that if Pinochet were alive he would vote for him and that "separating the issue of human rights, Pinochet's Last Database government for the development of the country was better than Sebastián Piñera's." With this speech, Kast gained some notoriety in the 2017 presidential elections and reached about 8% of the Last Database vote in the first round. How the right found its outrage In The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Sarah Palin[The reactionary mind.
Conservatism from Last Database Edmund Burke to Sarah Palin] (2011), Corey Robin describes the modern era as a democratizing march in which subordinate sectors have rebelled against some order and hierarchy of power. In response to each of these marches, there has Last Database been a restorative reaction, sometimes called "reactionary," "conservative," "revanchist," or "counterrevolutionary." In this sense, Robin explains, the concrete forms that conservatism takes at a specific juncture are not essential to it. Some conservatives criticize the free market, others defend it; some Last Database oppose the State, others promote it; some believe in God, others are atheists. Some are nationalists, others internationalists.As Samuel P.
Huntington (1957) explains, conservative ideology Last Database would be the expression of a recurrent and historically situated reaction to forces that push to change some institution. Kast's promise to recover a lost order rests on the indignation of a sector of society that sees how basic principles of social coexistence that defined Chile before 2019 have been Last Databaseset aside. That is to say, the vertigo generated in sectors of society by mobilizations for feminist, indigenist and social guarantee demands, which are intermingled with images of disorder or even chaos. In a scenario of this type, the retroutopias of returning to a past of supposed stability and Last Database social peace emerge. Thus, the seductive power of Kast's promise comes, going back to Robin.
