  1. WI: Pinochet Starts his own Church

    After the 1988, rather than surprisingly accepting it as otl, Pinochet refuses to step down and starts a white terror campaign to cement his rule and wipe out further opposition. The Catholic Church goes from criticizing the dictatorship to actively opposing it and does everything short of...
  2. What if Pinochet Was Elected Into Presidency?

    To start with, the story of Chile’s recovery and transition from dictatorship to democracy would have been very different. Pinochet’s election to the presidency in 1980 could have been viewed as a liberalization and democratization that could have transformed Chile. Instead, a more-authoritarian...

  5. Possible candidates for a post-independence Chilean monarchy?

    I will keep this short. Let's say that, after Chile declares its independence from Spain, they decide to have a constitutional monarchy in order to preserve order and civility in the political scene and to avoid the failed republics and constant coups and civil wars that happen in other Latin...

I mean, Allende's Popular Unity will collapse or survives enough for 1976 election? The PDC will seek new...

    the best ways on how to achieve a better-off Chile

    There are a multiple ways in which Chile, which had the similar economic potential early in the 20th century as Australia and New Zealand, could have infinitely become better off than the mess it has become in the past 50-plus years. I find some the best ways are: 1. Avoid the severe...

    AHC: Chilean Tierra del Fuego

    In our timeline the southern Chile-Argentina border runs west to east before turning roughly east-southeast to Punta Dungeness, going across the Strait of Magellan, and then south down Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego to the Beagle Channel. So is there any way to have the border instead continue...

    Threadmarks: A Homecoming

    The loudspeaker broadcast the final boarding call for the ferry. I had been smoking a cigarette and staring out across the harbour, looking at nothing in particular but taking in the sunshine on a nearly cloudless day. The announcement broke my focus, so I grabbed my backpack off the dock, mate...

    South American Great War- A Soberania TL

  14. WI: Pinochet Not Part of the Coup

    Despite claiming in his memoirs that he was the leading plotter of the 1973 Chilean coup d'état, Pinochet is generally believed to have only joined the coup very shortly before it occurred. Which raises an interesting question: suppose he never joined? What consequences would him not joining the...
  15. WI: Operation Soberanía Leads to War

    Let's say that Argentina doesn't cancel its planned invasion of Chile (maybe Pope John Paul II is unable to get involved for whatever reason) and open war between the two countries begins in December 1978. What would happen, and what consequences would a "Beagle War" have?

    War between Pinochet's Chile and a British Argentina in the 80s.

    Bear in mind this Argentina (and Uruguay also included) was basically taken over by Britain during Napoleonic War and it ended up becoming part of the British Empire afterwards. I am not looking for answers on how it be realistic for it to happen. Basically instead of a Falklands War in 1982...

    Alternate WC : Continental Cups are Qualifiers (1962-?). A Football TL

    Immediately after the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, many teams rushed to complain to FIFA due to the immensely short time to prepare between games at the World Cup, before and during the WC. However, FIFA couldn't come to a solution. The qualifiers would take a good year to complete, and then the WC...
