El respeto irrestricto a la libertad e integridad del ser humano así como la reivindicación de la tolerancia permean estas páginas en las que Roberto Ampuero y Mauricio Rojas conversan en torno a su evolución política desde el marxismo de los años sesenta a las ideas liberales que hoy profesan.


Tanto Roberto Ampuero como Mauricio Rojas soñaron con la revolución comunista en los tiempos de Salvador Allende y la Unidad Popular. Ambos salieron al exilio tras el golpe de Estado de 1973, donde se decepcionaron de la materialización de la utopía por la que luchaban. Le vieron de cerca el rostro al socialismo, ya sea totalitario o socialdemócrata, y no les gustó. Pero su largo viaje por tierras lejanas no solo cambió sus ideales políticos sino también a ellos como personas y les permitió mirar a Chile con nuevos ojos.

En Diálogo de conversos recuerdan su pasado y los errores de los radicalismos, e invitan a extraer lecciones de esa historia para re cuperar el profundo sentido de la amistad cívica en que se basa la democracia así como la credibilidad en la política. En este libro los autores analizan también el complejo presente de la sociedad chilena, advierten sobre los riesgos de la polarización política n acional y proponen un futuro más auspicioso para nuestro país."


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A profound respect for freedom and human integrity, as well as the claim for tolerance fill these pages in which Roberto Ampuero and Mauricio Rojas talk about their political evolution from Marxism in the 60s to the liberal ideas that they profess today. Both Ampuero and Rojas dreamt of the communist revolution during Chile's times of Salvador Allende and the Popular Unity alliance. Both went into exile after the Military Coup in 1973 which is where they became disheartened with the utopia for which they had fought.

Their faraway travels not only changed their ideals, but also changed them as persons; they were able to see Chile with clearer eyes. In this work they remember their past and the mistakes of radicalism, and invite us to learn from history in order to regain the deep sense of civic duties that democracy is based on. In it, the authors also analyze the complicated present of Chilean Diálogo de conversos A Dialog between Two Converts society today, they warn about the risks of domestic political polarization and propose a more promising future for Chile.
