Cabinet of Chile, 1970 CHILE

Felicitaciones, delegares! I, Salvador Allende have just been elected the first Marxist president of Chile and I know that with my dedication to the elevation of the working class- and your hard work- great things are in store for our country. We must take a stand to defend our nation from the capitalists that seek to overthrow our hold on the government. We must unite with our fellow Latin American countries and socialist regimes around the world. And above all we must prove that socialism can thrive in the great nation of Chile and in the South American continent.

Of course, as our new regime flourishes we will have to ask ourselves many things. Will we turn to the Americas or will we lean on the USSR for aid? Can we reverse decades of inflation and economic policies that have crippled the lower classes? How are we to unite all of Chile under our Marxist agenda? Will Chile rise and be the beacon of socialism in the Americas or will we fall before we are given the chance to liberate those who have been oppressed? The future of Chile and of the working class lies in our hands. We must not falter in our resolve to create a better Chile, one that serves all of its people. Let us hope that this bright future comes to fruition. Long live Chile! Long live the people! Long live the working class!
