I suspect the flare up in Chile is temporary. One of our former students hosted us there a couple years ago. He joked a lot about how protesting was part of the student culture. It seems that some if it has gotten out of hand, but I don't expect Chile to become unsafe on a long-term basis.

Every country has areas that are best avoided and every country has bad incidents that occur in areas that are normally safe.
You are usually a solid poster with well thought out comments, but this is clearly not just "some stuff happened in the bad part of town". The drug gang trounced the military and the government literally caved in to their demands.

The prosecution of them, for this reason, will seldom fail to agitate the passions of the whole community, and to divide it into parties more or less friendly or inimical to the accused. In many cases it will connect itself with the pre-existing factions, and will enlist all their animosities, partialities, influence, and interest on one side or on the other; and in such cases there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt."- A.
