Chilean Communism: Coming to America?
Time & Location
About the event
Join us at Spring Valley Golf Club on Saturday, March 6th, at 9:00 AM for an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast, and to hear International Speaker, Leah Southwell, share her following experience while living in Chile.
Through a military coup in Chile in 1973, generals removed a Socialist-Communist president and successfully suppressed Marxism. Free-market economics were introduced and Chile became the world's "Economics Miracle" and was considered the best in Latin America. Last October, society suddenly erupted in violent protests, burning, looting, and fighting with the police and even triggering a state of emergency, bringing out the military to Santiago's streets, and lasting months. We recently saw something similar happening here. What are the commonalities? Although the spark was different, the underlying causes are the same. What is happening in America today, and why?
Guest Speaker: Leah Southwell - Leah was an eyewitness to this event and the seven years leading up to this. As an American having lived in Holland for ten years and now seven years in Chile, she has interesting cultural observations as possible reasons and explanations. Leah has a unique perspective on what is happening globally and especially here in the states after having seen it from the outside looking in and after much self-reflection as an American abroad. She has a passion for sharing the ideals of Americanism and the catastrophic consequences we are currently facing.
