Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - October 13, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it pleasant news Section one 2 sections vol. 92, no. 241 it. Pleasant Iowa tuesday evening october 13, 1970 Price to cents Jeffrey Hart civil War in Chile despite All claims to the contrary or. Salvador a Fenide the putative marxist president of Chile has no Chance whatever of carrying out his drastic restructuring of chilean society without recourse to violence. Senor Allende Hopes that the fundamental changes he proposes can be brought about without coercion and his numerous sympathizers in the United states murmur assurances that so it will be. But it is about As certain As the second Law of thermodynamics that convulsive violence will Issue from any serious attempt by Allende to enact his program. Consider Senor Allende y in a three Way race for the presidency received Only one percent More votes than his right Wing rival Jorge Alessandri. The margin wag 36-35 percent. The Christian Democrat Rad Miro Tomic finished third. According to chilean custom the Congress is expected to choose Allende the front runner As president on october 24. Or. Allende envisions a vast transformation of the country the creation though the details Are far from Clear of a a socialist he plans widespread appropriation of both corporate and private property sweeping land Reform and a reorientation of Chile a foreign policy in the direction of Cuba the soviet Union and red China. Too yet nearly two out of every three voters voted against Allende and his what Are they supposed to be doing while Allende blithely goes about his transformation of the country and of course their individual lives with Only a very narrow political base and with Only a paper thin margin Over his nearest opponent Allende seeks to bring about revolutionary change a without he says resorting to Force. What can he have in mind does he plan to hypnotize the two thirds who oppose him and his plans the contradictions Here Are both fundamental and absolute. A representative democracy which Chile for the time being still is does indeed possess the Means of enacting far reaching and even revolutionary changes. Yet it is implicit in the theory or representative government that such changes require the sup1 it not merely of a majority but of an overwhelming majority perhaps almost a unanimity. Consider the United states example. A revolutionary measure to pass into Law would first have to pass both houses of Congress. Since senators serve for six years and since Only one third amp of them Are up in any Given election the support for a revolutionary proposal would have to remain in being for a considerable length of time if As would be Likely a sizeable body of senators opposed it. Too furthermore because each state Large or Small has two senators the measure must Appeal to both kinds of states and its Appeal would have to transcend Section and Region and Appeal to normally conflicting interests. If despite All these difficulties it did pass both houses of Congress it would have to do so with majorities Large enough to preclude a presidential veto. And if As might very Well be the Case with a revolutionary measure it were found by the supreme court to be unconstitutional it would have to wait either for the reconstitution of the court through attrition or for the enactment of a constitutional amendment. The architects of the Constitution constructed these and Many other baffles for the excellent reason that they knew that really serious change must have very wide support for if the change is really serious its opponents if they Are numerous enough will fight. In the Normal course of affairs we submit to Many measures of which we Dis approve but this is Only because we Are United by so Many other things that we Are Content to put up with the minor objects of our disapproval. But let that measure be fundamental enough and it will produce bloodshed if enough people feel threatened by it. A Good precedent for the current situation in Chile would be the Spain of 1936. The social democratic government of Manuel Azana with the approval of at most around half of the Spanish people pressed ahead with fundamental changes in Spanish society. Since he utterly failed to bring the rest of the country along with him civil War was inevitable and in that event he lost. Senor Allende meet Manuel Azana.
