On the eve of the second round in Colombia, where Rodolfo Hernández and Gustavo Petro will compete for the Presidency, Javier Milei made a public presentation in Bogotá, where he warned about the risks of socialism. The Argentine deputy called this ideological current the “enemy of the ideas of freedom.”
“Don’t let lefties steal your freedom, because once you lose it, it’s hard to get it back,” he stressed at his exhibition at the Astor Plaza Theater in the Colombian capital. In Milei’s opinion, the socialist currents have operated together since the emergence of the Sao Paulo Forum. For the libertarian deputy “that was the origin of the strategy of 21st century socialism” that promotes “cultural Marxism throughout the continent.” “The goal of the maximum is to create the Union of Latin American Socialist Republics,” he pointed out.
As he usually does in his political interventions, the Argentine libertarian referent did not leave aside the economic concepts of his classic “public classes.” He spoke about the theory of value and explained how redistributive policies increase poverty rates in countries.
“You have to understand that socialism is not an honest adversary, but it is the enemy. Not understanding that implies taking lukewarm positions that lead to greater doses of socialism until it leads to the dictatorship of the left, “Milei warned.
Eduardo Bolsonaro: «The future president of Argentina»
Before his arrival in Colombia, Milei was at the conservative CPAC meeting in Sao Paulo, where he shared an event with José Antonio Kast and Eduardo Bolsonaro. From his social networks, the son of the president and federal deputy of Brazil uploaded a photo with the Argentine and the Chilean and assured that both Milei and Kast will reach the presidencies of their respective countries.
Conversation with Mauricio Macri
Before his tour of the region, the deputy from La Libertad Avanza held a virtual meeting via Zoom with former president Mauricio Macri. The meeting would have been held at the initiative of the writer and economist Alberto Benegas Lynch (h), one of Milei’s leading intellectuals.
Although the content of the conversation has not transpired, the meeting made the Social Democratic sector of Together for Change nervous, which wants nothing to do with an approach with the libertarian. For his part, Milei has already confirmed that if Macri breaks with the Radical Civic Union and the Civic Coalition, he would have no problem sitting down to negotiate an agreement and a government plan for the 2023-2027 period.
