Trade unions ... were abolished. Along with the unions went other gains in workers' rights including the destruction of minimum wage.

Sound familiar? It will if you've been following Australian politics. These words are not in response to John Howard's latest plans, however. I just read them at ThinkSocialist. They are in relation to Pinochet's actions after the unfortunate "suicide" of Salvador Allende.

Pinochet also privatized the social security system of Chile, much like our very own pseudo-president [Bush] is seeking to do.

What happened next? Chile was lead into a fascist regime. So tell me - are you worried?
