YMMV: Open Veins of Latin America

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Of a lot of people.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The writer laments the presence of military governments in Latin America, but is relieved to see Salvador Allende (a socialist) as President of Chile, hoping for him to have a great government… months after the book was published, Allende was deposed in a coup d’etat and commited suicide
    • Although, today there are much fewer military governments in Latin America. Ironically, Cuba is one of the last of them.
  • Moral Event Horizon
