Milei the Bulldozer and a National Strike

23rd January 2024 Tony Phillips 0

The way Milei recognises these “better” conditions means that the costs of adjustment are being borne not by his famous (caste) but by the working classes in Argentina, especially those employees that are considered by Milei to be “collectivists” i.e. they think that they might have a better chance of being paid better with better conditions if they organize as a union

Argentina en las manos de Díos

2nd January 2024 Tony Phillips 1

Las elecciones presidenciales de 2023 demostraron que los argentinos están desesperadamente cansados de los fracasos económicos y la corrupción. Estaban dispuestos a darle una oportunidad a Javi (o a cualquiera nuevo). Aunque muchos ahora se arrepienten, la mayoría de los votantes todavía se resisten a admitir que al votar contra el peronismo pueden haber cometido un error muy grave.

Milei Doubles Down

Listen to me but only to me says Javi! My Austrian religion is the one true religion, all other religions are evil. The devil is a socialist. The one true light is our God, the market. Greed is good. God loves a market, a market Nirvana. Nobody comes to Nirvana but through Me! Me! Me! Carajo!

While still on the election trail Javi had been asked by a journalist how he could effect change, since as a President alone, with his tiny party, the LLA, which has only one state senator and very few deputies in the House of Representatives? How could he Javier Milei pass laws? His answer sounded somewhat dictatorial. I will rule by presidential decree!

Prólogo: El 10 de diciembre de 2023 Bolsonaro ya estuvo de camino a la residencia de ancianos. Se había fugado de Brasil al pueblerino estado norteamericano de Florida, pero incluso enfrentando cargos se las arregló para llegar (con su hijo) a la fiesta de inauguración de Milei.

Milei Chronicles (2) Bipolar Political Divide

28th August 2023 Tony Phillips 1

Since the 1943 Argentine coup d’État, and Perón’s resulting presidential investiture in 1945, Juan Domingo Perón’s legacy has been a grand divide in Argentine politics between believers in his personality cult (Peronists) ⏤followers of his very flexible, somewhat nationalist, policies⏤ and the rest who hate him with a passion.
