The Road to Socialism
This chapter discusses socialism in Chile, from its origins until the late twentieth century. The roots of Chilean socialism go back to the mid-nineteenth century. It was Liberal Francisco Bilbao who introduced the idea after spending a period of exile in France. His articles in the Friend of the People helped found and nurture the romantic democratic movement of Chile that emerged victorious by the twentieth century. By the late twentieth century, Chile had a socialist-style government; the two presidential candidates were both driven by the socialist impulse and had similar proposals for economic and social change.
