One of the things that still are going from that specific historical period of dictatorship, is the main body of their(I mean, from Pinochet and the right wing) constitution, that between other things, ask for high quorums for some things, and as they're the one in power now, it's harder than ever to pass things as the ICC, that and the same things your politicians say about it, in terms of it being unconstitutional and such. Not that it is a very well-known issue nowadays.
To develop their conscience and consciousness, to make them aware of what is going on, to prepare the precarious ground for the future alternatives—this is our task: "our" not only as Marxists but as intellectuals, and that means all those who are still free and able to think by themselves and against indoctrination, communist as well as anticommunist.
