And all the children, he warns ”don’t tell,”
Those threats are sold
With their guilt and shame they think they’re to blame
For candyman – oh candyman

 

Desaparecido

Aprovecho la circunstancia de la “desaparición sin vida” de JRV, para recapitular un poco.

Las coincidentes dictaturas militares en toda Latinoamérica en la década de los 70’s no eran casualidad, sino que todas ellas respondían a una estrategia de formación durante los años de la Guerra Fría, bajo la Doctrina de la Seguridad Nacional, para combatir en el propio territorio de cada país, al terrorismo comunista. Esta formación se impartió en la “Escuela de las Américas”.

No habrá datos (quién los tenga que los aporte) de si el terrorismo interno, fue o no financiado por los mismos poderes, pero lo cierto que bajo la excusa de la lucha armada, estas dictaduras eran el brazo armado de políticas conservadoras y neo-liberales, que en ningún modo se hubieran podido imponer en contextos democráticos.

Por ello, las fuerzas que impulsaban estas dictaduras, siguen presentes y de ninguna manera podemos pensar que rige aquello de “muerto el perro se acabó la rabia”, ahora bajo mecanismos mucho más sutiles de “pseudo-democracias”.

The End

It won’t happen that way. They won’t come all of a sudden, from one day to the other. They are wise and clever, so as to do such thing.

You won’t have military or police forces kicking your doors down, to arrest you, and your family. They will not burn your books. They will not fire laser beams from outer space. They will not trigger a WWIII. All those are too blunt tactics, but mostly, they know they would be putting at risks their own lives.

No, it will be more subtle, more imperceptible.
In fact, it has already started, without too many noticing it yet.

One day, as it has happened to too many already, you will find it difficult to pay your mortgage. Then, your economy will shrink slightly more, and you won’t be able to pay for the oil/gas of your car. You will have to sell both, your house and your car, and see yourself having to rent an appartment, and travel by public transport. Nothing of your own. I know, there are millions of people that have been living that way for years, but not you.

Then it will be Education. No more free public education. You’ll have to work like a slave just for your kids to learn barely, to read and write. Same with your health. After that, you will be left with no tap water, unless you pay (considerable sums) for it.

And you will have no option, you won’t be able to have a B Plan, i.e.: escaping to the woods and seek for your own sustenance, for it will already be forbidden and illegal. You will have to even pay for every second of your life.

What will be your choices then? You’ll be free to survive, or free to die.

In fact, that’s exactly what the Bible says, isn’t it?

You will deny Jesus for 20 centuries, and more …

I’m a born again skeptic.

Being young, I used to go to mass. I attended Pope Paul VI Wednesday’s weekly general audience in early 1978, and even did so with John Paul II, again in 1980. In between, Pope John Paul I died in a quite mysterious way, 33 days after being elected.

I mean, I had a relationship with religion and the church. But when I was about thirteen, I ceased attending mass, I ceased believing in the church. Still, I admit I do have a crisis nowadays, regarding Jesus and Christianism. I keep strong bonds with the core and essence of Christianism, mainly the concept of brotherhood.

But with all the recent events, i.e.: the resignation of pope Benedict XVI, the election of the new pope, and all the controversies about his past life, I have strong feelings about the Catholic Church (CC), I don’t want to keep for myself, because the CC affects the life of so many.

Not only the power and wealth of the Vatican City, neither all the corruption presumably part of the CC structure. It’s not about the role of the CC in so many holocausts (many carried out by the CC itself). It isn’t related to the involvement of the CC in the politics, international affairs, financial crisis and the fairness of our current society. I mean, it “IS” about all this, but there is, in my opinion, an issue that cannot be justified in any way:

It’s about the kids.

An institution that keeps within its members, people that commit the deadliest sin, i.e.: abuse of the innocent, is not trustworthy anymore. Not to say the ones that committed the atrocity themselves, for they deserve the worse punishment one can think of.

What can you expect from an organization that preaches love between men, compassion, forgiveness, and every virtue desired in the soul of a human being, but then covers and silences, the evil done to the souls of the most vulnerable and defenseless? And what’s worse, precisely when kids are given in custody to that institution.

No, I cannot expect anything.

Being an architect myself, I know when foundations are corrupted, the whole building can collapse anytime.

But this is an obvious notion for anyone. Isn’t it?

To Youtube and anyone else.

Please, do not let upload videos like this anymore, at least, not in my name, or in the name of freedom of press.

I still cannot see the determination with which too many people put the stress on the fact that we seem to lack of hope, of love and that we have been living over the top. We do know this, and as I’ve already said, we are already “paying” and being punished for such an outrageous slip.

The same that at our individual level we must deal with each other’s lives, there are issues that if they don’t, they SHOULD CONCERN US ALL, at the same time than our private matters.

WE ARE NOT CATTLE. WE ARE NOT THE CASH COW.

IF WE ARE SENTENCED TO DEATH, WE DESERVE TO KNOW THAT DECISION, SO WE DEAL WITH IT IN THE MOST SUITABLE WAY.

This news published today in the WSJ (nothing’s been shown in The Economist web site so far), is a flagrant expression of despotism from the markets, to sentence Spain to decades of submission. Do they deserve it? Not more than the northamericans, or the netherlanders, or the british or the french. None of these people, should be caught in this dreadful and modern, sophisticated, slavery game.

p.s.: Once I finished writing, I was wondering should I tag this post in “Democracy”. What do you think?

Amusement
