My general Cua'nto valés! (on the incidents in San Vicente around the grotesco transfer of the rest of Perón)

Sometimes History is repeated twice: first like tragedy, second like farce (Karl Marx the Eighteen Brumario)

The phrase of epígrafe has been reiterated in muchísmas occasions, but almost other is not possible to evoke the embarrassing events of the Villa of San Vicente. That sainete which we have seen retrasmitido by the channels of the news is the Peronism, the political class (incluída opposition), and the union bureaucracy of nowadays, that they have to leave to walk a corpse, because despite his already prolonged sobrelife, they are they themselves a corpse long ago, if we confronted what historically they promised to be with which indeed they are. It did not lack anything of everything almost what in repugnant form it has contaminated to the Argentine popular movement, and lacked everything what yes is worth the trouble to be remembered. Why: Simply because for a long time this union bureaucracy has accompanied the permanent deterioration by the conditions of life of the population, the permanent treason of represented his, the passage of a country with 4% from leisure to another one with leisure of two digits, the one of an index of poverty of 6% to which it involves half of the population, and the delivery of the national patrimony, all it to the shout of Perón, Perón, and with union leaders which they show an inexplicable standard of life, worthy of millionaires. The Moyano companion (and not only Moyano but all), raised the roof when "Banelco" financed law flexibilizer of relations labor during government radical (protest which from already she was correct), nevertheless did not investigate how many "Banelco" existed from law 24 013 in ahead disassembling in short time all the labor rights that the workers had obtained during the first Peronism. The protests anti menemistas of Moyano were spaced and symbolic, nor that to speak of union Cavalieri or others jerarcas during that period, and its absolute complacencia yet, complacencia that or had exercised during the military dictatorship. That nonsense could not then finish of another way all, or at least of another way that not outside lamentable. The grotesco is completed with other condimentos like the interventions of Comfortable Marta, the presumed daughter of Perón, and dislates mediatic. Within this last heading it deserves to stand out the performance of Julio Bazán, the cronista kamikaze of Tn and Canal 13, that is not perhaps the heir of Perón, but if it is it surely of Jose de Zer. To the morning in front of the building of the C.G.T., Bazán outlined a panegírico of jerarcas union, remembering Jose Rucci, that gremial leader who outside assassinated, thinks that by a Montonero commando, (what from no longer he is vindicateable), forgetting, as many seem to forget, the suspicions that weigh on Rucci, respect to their participation in the slaughter of Ezeiza, that one luctuoso fact of thirty ago and three years, that by anything were not compared with the shame which we are commenting in diverse means, although this last one has luckily not had the same terrible consequences that the previous one, in which it does to human lives. In the evening Bazán, when relating the violence facts, repeated: "this is surrealista", forgetting perhaps that as much he as other colleagues his are in their matter which Buñuel went to the cinema, Dalí to the painting, and Bretón and Aragón to Literature. Periplo of the journalist of the Fratticelli case concluded to the night with the Villa of San Vicente in silence and affirming that "General Perón finally rests peacefully". Comfortable Martha, meanwhile, demands its connection respect to Ex- President Perón, fact that obivamente is important, to involve the historical personality that it involves, but that does not stop being a private fact. For that reason same it is pathetic which Antonio Cafiero insists on denying all possible paternity of Perón respect to Comfortable, confusing the succession ab intestato that will have to be transacted if the reclamation of this last one is favorable, with the political inheritance of the old caudillo, who by the sight yesterday, seems at least widely to be squandered. It was not the only delirium of the old leader in the last days: All the country vió to diminish the events of the villa of San Vicente when asking "Perhaps was some dead", or to remember to Darwin Passaponti, dead for 61 years during the 17 of October of the 45, or to respond to the journalist who interrogated it about the happened thing to a sharp one: Not me gorilee. The President separates from the scandal, as it is logical, but forgets that he had given ok to the necrofílico act polìtico- him that gave sustenance him, and that those that was there were not another thing that its allies. The official voices complete the silly thing that begin to weave the theory of the "plot", theory also sustained by Moyano, to that nobody doubt that along with Gerald Martinez, and the "Leg" Medina, subordinate of this last one, is one of the two parts of the conflict. Also the opposition gave the note: As much Lopez Murphy, Elisa Carrió, like Stolbitzer Daisy, aims at the responsibilities from the point of view of the "security". They question that this is into the hands of "assault groups", which is correct, but slyly enter in a discussion that solely points at who must repress, which projects obvious to the social conflict, and not only to facts like the one of yesterday, forgetting that facts of this nature in the innumerable amount of route cuts have not been verified that have been in the last years, except for when exactly the "Forces of Security" took part. In short, the subject gives for much but, but returning to the book of Marx from whom it is taken the phrase from epígrafe some additional reflections can be aimed: In that book, "the 18 Brumario", Marx talked about to the blow given by Luis Bonaparte who finally crowns itself like Napoleón III autoproponiendo itself like successor of his uncle Napoleón Bonaparte. Marx emphasized the paper of lúmpenes who had served to him to Bonaparte like striking power, and the nephew of the uncle called contemptuously "". The Argentine policy is full of "nephews of the uncle", "children of", "spouses of", "lovers", and lúmpenes as we saw yesterday, arranged to fight itself in one internal polìtica, one internal union one, or a field of soccer. The society, all we, did not stop being responsible for the leadership who we have, although as a whole we slightly pruned to be better than they. They appeal to simbologìa of years 50, or about years 70, according to the case, but she is empty operations, simple operations of electoral marketing, that sometimes derive in that somebody happens to the act as in the case of Jorge Julio Lopez, or the happened thing in San Vicente. But they are pure emptiness, that is only one fight to administer the country of 50% of poverty, or the leisure of two digits, and of the minorities treacherously enriched. It says the Peronist march: My General, Whichever Valés! Madness to try a "celebration" with a "corpse" and to fight themselves by the handle of the drawer seems to testify it with the miserable sense that it has the value for certain people. Taking another phrase from the same march Is this the "effective reality"? We must to Perón or to whom? This "effective reality" cannot perpetuarse.Está in us change it.

Paint yout village (Some advices for the english speaking readers)

Paint your village, then you´ll be universal.

This is a local and universal site at the same time.
It is local because is written in an specific country (Argentina), and it is of course about its local events and the way they affect us.
But, by beeing local, we are at the same time trying to be universal because we know that in spite of the great existing differences form one country to the other, the whole world share the same problems and the same concerns, and of course there are similar people working hard to change things.
We know that for non latin american readers, and even for those latin americans who are not argentines certain names are not familiar, and maybe at the beggining you´ll think that they cannot gather much interest.
But on analysing the whole matter you´ll find that argentinian reallity is so complex and amazing that any social investigator would be anxious to get some news from this country.
For instance intellectuals such as Naomi Clain, Toni Negri, Michael Hardt and James Petras have analysed and written a lot about argentinian phenomena, and that´s not by chance.
On the other hand, this blog is universal, because is shares world concern about any human subject, such as war, social gap, new social and political movements, and many others.
Our wish is to be read in Buenos Aires, Manhattan, Bagdad, and many other places at the same time and to enrich each other with intense exchange, painting our village, and painting the universe.

VILLAINS, innocents, victims Or HÉROES?(a intention of the disappear and others repressed by the military dictatorship

Due to the repressed ones by the dictatorship in quality of ", tortured assassinated, imprisoned disappeared ", etc., different characterizations exist, or have existed.Those different characterizations have fundamented different "historical-political" views about the period and coming out of that, it served the purpouse of justfying different attitudes held by different people.First of all let`s analyse if to ask ouselves this question is useful Let us say that nowadays the only sense that this question has is to investigate in what it is worth the trouble to be imitated and that other that must be left aside, since none of the characterizations that we are going to analyse attenuates in but minimum the repudiable and criminal action of the terrorism of State.
That is of course the version of the repressive ones, and it is not only the characterization of those who wore a uniform, it is also the one held by their political accomplices.Because the decree signed by provisional President Luder, Caffiero, and Ruckauff that ordered "to annihilate" "subversion", or the "manufacturing guerrilla" imagined by the polititian Ricardo Balbín was the reflection of what the political class thought about the subject.
Because the characterization of Videla like a "democratic general" it was not an Argentinian Communist Party saying, but it l the whole political establishment point of view.It was also the concept that it tranquilized to good part of the civil society that with the "something will have done" justified its passivity.According to this maniquea vision the political disappear and prisoners, were not another thing who pérfidos and heartless that placed pumps in sites public and that had to be massacreed without mercy, to not only punish his to drive presumably weak, but also to avoid that they impose to the country a communist regime to him.This qualification does not deserve greater commentaries except for observing than it does not have to be underestimated because most of the society believed in her at its moment, and it reproduces it before diverse circumstances. It belongs to the logic of the "plague" and the "internal enemy" that advises to move away of "stinked out", or that proposes the purifying sacrifice as expiación form, and that it transforms to each resemblance into a "suspect".THE INNOCENT PARSLEYS As contrafigura of the previous version arises that other than tries to demonstrate that the political disappear and prisoners were "surface parsleys", or militants "naif" or in some case not even that, that they were kidnapped indiscriminately by the Armed Forces in his desforada repressive vortex.They were according to this vision, adolescents who were going to alphabetize carenciados districts, or who fought by the scholastic ticket, delegates of factory, or simple union delegates of diverse political connections, but in no case guerrilla.It was possible to be dealed with at the most territorial militants of organizations who could have some connection with the guerrilla organizations, but were, according to this point of view disarmed people.According to this vision also, and parafrasenado the "something they will have done", it would be possible to be said in this case that "had not done anything" and that was "unjustly" represaliados.It was the initial vision of the organisms of human rights. It tended to affect the vision of a society that had allowed the illegal repression, and to overcome that sensation of "ajenidad" that sosteneía the citizen means respect to the disappear. The organisms of human rights did what they could and hardly they had been listened to maintain a rigorous position butA new closed, perfect and reassuring argument arose like corolario of this characterization: the theory of the "two demons".Then, and according to that characterization the country had been whipped by two strange maleficent forces that had put under it a delirious war to which majority of the citizenship was other people's.In that scheme the political disappear and prisoners were part of that mainly pacific citizenship, since they were only militant of surface, because the guerrilla heads had put themselves under cover, reason why the repression was a sadistic dispoditivo destined to innocent people.Across they were the military dictators, and in means the citizens who absolutely did not know what happened reason why had been able to go in aid of the victims.Others are saying that this theory gave rise to "pacificadoras" exits like which had obedience, full stop, or I pardon.The HEROES MARTYRS And SAINTS. Other visions canonize to the disappear and political prisoners conferring the status to them either of saints, or of martyrs or of heroes.According to one first approach, the victims of the terrorism of State would be the martyrs who allowed us to conclude with the cycle of coup d'etats in our country.Firmenicha affirms for example that all the disappear were guerrilla or had a very narrow entailment with the guerrilla.Other versions are those that consider that they were the best ones of the society and for that reason "they disappeared them".In an extreme version of this theory one affirms that "those that were saved by something sera '".VICTIMAS REALLY All the previous planteos are idle. What surely they are the disappear is victims of an aberrant methodology of illegal repression.Because it does not concern the status of the prisoner, nonguerrilla guerrilla or, nothing justifies the torture and the massive murder.However how much there is really in all of them.Because all great lie has something really and vice versa.Until the miserable military justification about the "Marxist demon" it really has something.Guerrilla detachments that they intended to install a regime of socialist type, in that existed is no duda.Y those guerrilla detachments also had a high predicament in sectors of youth. But for the time of the blow they practically were decimated, and the installation of a so massive terror and the prohibition of all type of political and union activity exclusively were not directed to the guerrilla detachments. It was directed to all potential revolt against an economic project of pauperización and destruction of the national industry.That of the "parsleys of surface" and of the absent soicedad of a false civil war solely imagined by its contenders also has something of certain, because the popular support to the guerrilla still at its better moments never was majority far from it.But it is not less certain that a part of the society did not see with antipathy the guerrilla activities when these aimed at the return of Perón, and that that same society guaranteed with its silence and sometimes with its applause the illegal repression by means of the "something will have done" and in exchange for the small mirrors of colors of the "sweet silver" of Martinez de Hoz, not considering who this endorsement was autodestructivo (others are saying that in this aspect history was repeated at the time of Cavallo). Also it is certain that "to gamble" by a society project but just it reflected human qualities superior to those of the average of the Argentine society.But it did not imply that all the represaliados ones were necessarily the "best ones".It is said "eliminated a generation that today would direct to the country and the things would be different". That is quite relative, we verified day to day as many sobreviventes have been reinsertado successfully in the system, doing all the opposite of which they preached then.The salary be victim of the state terrorism cannot either be exculpatory of the vile tricks of the present.In short, this cannot finish here. It is enough to say that some of these arguments that usually are present in the debates on the subject annul the possibility of a serious, deep debate, and that it serves us for the present and the future.

The ones who have seen the excellent German movie called "The Edukators" will be able to get some idea of what we mean. But for those ones who have not seen it let´s say that the edukators want to educate and to be educated. We want to educate those ones who think that they have definitively won the war , or anyone who thinks that this miserable and unjust order with 60% or more of human kind starving underneath the poverty border is inexorable, that nothing can be done against it.
Behind the richest country clubs, or the deprived districts, in the corrupt ones´ mansions, fear reigns . And it is not fear of a guerrilla detachment, neither to a non existent block of the east, nor to none of the cold war demons . But fear is just there, it exists, is imperceptible, permanent but it´s just there.
You may say that everything failed. But triumphs or failures don´t matter, since good ideas always survive.
Is it possible that nobody is thinking about changing the world anymore?
Is today´s world better than what it was thirty years ago?
It is all the opposite.
Never so much concentration of power, never so much unfair wealth distribution , never so much risk of everything exploding in a thousand pieces, because a crazy person decides to push a botton, and there has never been so much frivolity to hide that all.
Can a new zombie generation be the answer to all this stuff?
We say definitively no, because hearts exist, and each heart can be a revolutionary cell.
The Edukators , do not only want to educate the rulling class , we want to be educated as well, to be mutually educated .
We want to turn off television sets, to just pass by the windows shops where Nike sports shoes are sold, and to devote ourselves to think and decide to change this horrible status.
To be educated and to educate, but not like teachers plum.
To be educated in the memory of good ideas, and in its present uttility.
To remember that Che Guevara is something else than a picture, and that the best way of paying tribute is him is to buid that "new man" he has always wished, that`s the point and not to imitate one by one his gestures and image
Because they success or failure don´t matter, good ideas always survive.
PD:This is an argetinian site, but amyway the subjects that we talk about are universal, because as the Russian writer ones said: "paint your village if you wat to be universal"
