Under the oligarchic republic, the impecunious Interior elites crowded federal political, administrative, and military offices. Their commonsense views on social and political issues colored (and not only for themselves) the ideological certainties they shared with the rest of the political elites and influenced how ideology was translated into policy. But these elites' rise to (mostly indirect) influence doesn't lend itself to a Moorean treatment; the Interior had been only minimally affected by the process that incorporated the Pampean lowlands into the "modern world," and its elites had an equally limited participation in the expanding export sector or its rising profits.

15 Landlord and Campesino in the Politics of Modern Chile Inquilinaje as a Political Base The landowners' political power in the countryside derived from control of land and people; but in the course of the nineteenth century, as Chile's formal democracy emerged, landowners had to compete in an electoral game with an ever more autonomous state. This meant that in order to use the state to coerce their workers, they had first to extract from their workers the votes necessary to compete in a restricted but nevertheless formally democratic political system.
