The life and death of White Man: In Memoriam Augusto Pinochet Ugarte (1915-2006)

Yesterday was a very sad day indeed. It was raining, as if Nature was morning over the passing out one of its beloved sons. I looked at the news monitor, read on and remain in suspense for a while. One of the Great White Men and Great Republican Augusto Pinochet Ugarte has died overnight. It was inconceivable: I still remembered his healthy joyful voice from a week-long interview. Yet it did happen: the heart of the Great White Man has stopped forever, manifesting the passing over of the whole epoch.
Augusto Pinochet Ugarte was born in 1915 in a well-off Catholic family of French and Spanish extraction. His father was a customs official, his mother - a housewife. He was the first out of six children born; and the ablest one according to parents and friends. The young Augusto was a leader in children’ games, the local priest always praised his reading and mathematical abilities to his parents. He was offered to enter university: but he wanted to serve his country, so he joined the military in the age of 18. His abilities were immediately recognized: he was advanced first to officer, than was send consequently to officer’s courses and military academy, where he stayed as a professor after completion. Pinochet was a talented scientist, publishing many works on military theory and history and geopolitics. He was advanced to brigade general and chief-of-staff in 1965, and to army commander-in-chief in 1973 – the peak of the military career in Chile. However the Fate has in store for him a more difficult task.
Chile of 1973 was in disarray. The socialist president Aliende had invited into the country 1000s of Cuban “advisors”, who were preparing soviet-style revolution and genocide. Only for one month of 1973 24 Catholic priests were murdered by socialists, alongside hundreds of Catholic peasantry and government officials. The economy was nearly destroyed by nationalization and mismanagement; the workers and peasants were less and less content. The armed forces were left at a simple choice: either to tolerate a communist takeover, bloodshed and becoming a soviet satellite or to overthrow the criminal socialist regime. Augusto Pinochet, as a true son of his People has decided on the second option.
In September of 1973 he and his trusted officer and soldiers, attacked the Presidential palace, La Moneda, which has become a communist citadel as well as other known communist locations around Santiago. A short but violent struggle ensured: Aliende and his fellow communists lost, and Aliende, afraid of military justice, that awaited him, short himself. Other captured communists were transported to the local stadium, where they were interrogated, judged by military court and punished. Around 2000 communists were condemned to death, and their sentences were carried out the same day. The communist hordes, seeing the resolve which the army restored law and order in Santiago, leaved the country en masse, settling for easy life in communist countries of Eastern Europe and soviet union. Augusto Pinochet has won the day. Yet his work was just beginning.
The first task was to restore economic foundations of the country. Here Pinochet asked for advice of the anti-Keynesian and free-market economists of Chicago school, who were shunned by economic establishment of the United States. Their advice was simple: return of property to its just American owners, establishment of sound currency, freeing of trade and labor markets, as well as promoting exports and attracting foreign investors. The advice was carried out to its fullest, and though Chile did not escape a number of economic crises, the results were excellent and even outstanding, if compared to performance of other Latin American nations: gross national product was increased by more than four times, mass unemployment has gone away, pension and currency reforms have created a strong foundation for growing prosperity of the Chileans.
The second task was to establish order in the chaotic thinking of his countrymen. Political parties were banned; the clowns who led them were exiled. Most of newspapers, communist as they were, were closed too, yet those of the Catholic and conservative orientation were promoted. An important task was completed in schools were socialists were fired en masse, and in universities which were cleared of humanistic and socialist profs: the most politically active of them were tried as communist spies they were, most others left the country. They were replaced by classical teachers and professors, often of humble origin, who were prevented by socialist and humanistic profs from teaching and academic career. This was one of the greatest services Augusto Pinochet did to his People.
The people were elated. Their living standards have steadily improved; many honored El General as they called him as a savior and a saint: some local priests started talk of his canonization. Yet the communist guerillas were not fully subdued, and started to be active in the country, where they murdered scores of Chilean families in the most brutal ways. In response El General undertook Operation Condor, in which guerillas were smashed by regular army, and they inspirers, who often lived abroad, were for the most part neutralized.
It was 1978, and Augusto Pinochet, who was a republican by his political view, and a dictator only insofar it was required to save his Nation, as the noble Roman dictators of the Past were, decided to gradually return power to his People. First a new republican constitution was adopted in referendum, and El General Pinochet confirmed as President for 8 years term. He lost his second referendum for confirmation of his powers, and free elections were held for his successor. He remained a commander in chief up to 1996 and life senator. His last years were marred by a communist witch-hunt, started by a Spanish socialist judge garson and then by Chilean socialist judges, who froze his property and put him under a house arrest. Yet despite re-activated socialist propaganda Chilean people continue to love him and praise as their savior and hero.
I added a black ribbon to a portrait of El General, which hang on the wall above my work-desk, near the portraits of El Caudillio Francisco Franco and Marshall Joseph Pilsudski. Three Great White Catholic leaders, and three epochs, which were ended with their death, and which led to their countries being taken over by communist and socialists. I looked in El General’s eyes, thinking of his feelings in the moment, when his was leading his men against the much more numerous communist hordes. I was confident there was no fear in them, only the sense of duty; and I thought will I be able to be as strong and resolute when the day comes.

70.000+ supporters of "el tata" (friendly word nearby translated as grandfather) were directly participating in their death honors act.
That is only in Santiago City, but out of Santiago, many chileans followed him this act.


Pinochetism is not dead as Leftist Government was trying to show to international world.

"Good Borned" Chileans are grateful to Pinochet Military Government, because here people was calling Army Forces intervention to cut end the insane and traitor marxist government. People made hours during files to obtain one or two breads!!! Allende was conducting us to starvation and to make us a satellite of URSS, following OLAS plans, organism created in Cuba (if I remember well), that was conducted by... yeah, "Damnator" Allende.

I, almost 48 hours ago, had opportunity to say some words in an Pinochetist Manifestation in Linares (Maule), and I know that if he did not interfere as it was, My family were killed by leftist extremists.

Thanks "tata". You saved Chile 11-IX-73. We will remember your heroism forever. Rest in Peace Captain General, Commander in Chief of Army and Ex-President, Augusto Jose Ramon Pinochet Ugarte.
