|Did you know that the Holy Inquisition lasted just two weeks in the Viceroyalty that later became Argentina, because settlers found it unbearable: the inquisitor arrived and soon fled for his life. At the same time, the Inquisition was working fine in our enlightened Europe.
Did you know that the Argentine revolutionaries on one of their first decrees (actually, I think it was their fourth) abolished slavery and torture, in 1810? General Washington had some slaves, didn't he?
And oh! They think that in order to be considered as roughly clean, you have to take a bath every day (many take a shower in the morning and another in the evening), use deodorant, and avoid getting drunk every now and then, feats not accomplished by many 'developed world' citizens, even today.
What means 'developed' then?
Argentineans, Brazilians, Chileans and other Latin Americans may be accused of ghastly administration indeed, but the only thing that may be considered underdeveloped when talking about them in the simplistic way in which it is done is the knowledge of those who do the talking.
Granted: they do have poverty, corruption, inefficiencies, bureaucracy, incompetent politicians and other maladies. But don't let yourself be misguided by the fashionable mantra of financial markets as before humanity believed blindly in religion, cannons, alleged racial superiority and similar stuff.
