PUNTA DE LANZA: «MONTESQUIEU MAQUIAVELO Y SANTOS DIALONGAN EN EL INFIERNO»

Many years ago a work appeared in France, clandestinely, precisely referring to two illustrious thinkers, respectable for the time and a fundamental piece in the governments of the day, in which both had a lot to do with the deep state of the time, and for one of them, like MONTESQUIEU, he considered the cause of democracy and freedom as a good that must be protected by law. Meanwhile, for MACHIAVELO, his main objective revolved around the fact that the end justifies the means, to achieve the objectives and political survival. Kind of like Roy Barrera. For Machiavellianism, ALL GOES prevails. They say that Armando fits in there. Continúa leyendo PUNTA DE LANZA: «MONTESQUIEU MAQUIAVELO Y SANTOS DIALONGAN EN EL INFIERNO»

EL PENSADOR: LA ATENCIÓN DE LA SALUD

In the universe of health care -especially in the private sector, and I emphasize it because it is the experience that I have lived more than once and to which I can refer solidly- there are certain behaviors, and I do not wish to generalize, that I do not understand ; and when using the verb to understand I want it not to be discarded perhaps, as naivety on my part.

EL PENSADOR: EL RITMO CANSINO

In my opinion, progressively, we are witnessing a pathology that places the Judiciary in an uncomfortable position to say the least. The slowness of its procedures, at all levels, compromises with certain assiduity –and I do not intend to be alarmist- a more dynamic, balanced and equitable operation of the republican democratic system on which Uruguayan society is based.

«The Guardian Angel» yells at me from my right shoulder, «Wednesday, again talking about the war», I answer subtly is what is «in», but this time I will talk about «the virtues of the world against Putin’s war»,because the world expected that the war would be over in three days and even I thought this was «a piece of cake for Russia», but my good little devil from the left side said: «Ukraine would lose as soon as the devil plucks an eyelash» ( quickly) and I replied: «I can tell you that you are wrong because the resistance stood up for their country» and bravely they continue to fight with weapons more archaic than Methuselah himself, they keep in the cave of the forgotten and they will continue to «fight.» Continúa leyendo EDITORIAL: LAS VIRTUDES DE LA GUERRA DE PUTIN…

EL PENSADOR: LA FÁBRICA

OPINIÓN: COLOMBIA FALLO DE LA CORTE CONSTITUCIONAL QUE LEGALIZA EL ABORTO HASTA LAS 24 SEMANAS DE GESTACIÓN

The favorable vote of four magistrates and one associate judge of the Constitutional Court, and with the saving of votes of four magistrates, among them, among these, three women, in a recent, controversial, painful and sad ruling decriminalizes abortion in Colombia and legalizes its execution up to 24 weeks of pregnancy. In the event that one of the three exceptional causes established by the same Court several decades ago does not apply the aforementioned term to abort.

EDITORIALE: MANAGUA – PECHINO, LA NUOVA ROTTA

Greatly surprising the international community, Nicaragua has decided to reestablish diplomatic relations with China at the highest level and, in consecuense, break diplomatic relations with Taiwan, which have always been commercial, never political. It is no coincidence that Taiwan has never come out in support of Managua in the different stages of its political action and that it has never tried to pressure its main sponsor – the United States – who has always been reminded that the relationship was only about business. The free zone is the only portion of Nicaraguan territory that interested the Taiwanese, that are now only recognized by 13 countries, apart from the Vatican, of the 197 that make up the entire international community.

EL PENSADOR: LA AGRESIVIDAD SOCIAL

There is a famous William Blake epigram – «The curse strengthens, the blessing relaxes» – to which it is often appealed out of context and, in this way, can become an exhortation to irascibility and aggressiveness, personal and social. Obviously, such an interpretation, no matter how common it is, is a mistake. Continúa leyendo EL PENSADOR: LA AGRESIVIDAD SOCIAL

OPINIÓN: CARTAGENA COLOMBIA Y SUS PETRISTAS

The city of Cartagena has always had its mental bazaars, behavioral, some of charity, others of love for the city and the currency and with that curious range of characters, of beading principles, they go up and down, to look for money, fame and then they go to sleep. It is a national evil. – Thus, the other history of the Hidalga city is being written, the one that appears so shameless, prostituted, and accomplice, which is very different from that forged and written by our great-great-grandparents, great-grandparents and grandparents, making it progress.

EL PENSADOR: LENTITUD DESALENTADORA

Milan Kundera wrote a few years ago, a novel titled «Slowness.» It is fiction, by the way quite complex, but it aims to show that always behind human attitudes, there have been, even in this century where everything seems to happen at very high speed, a friction between those who want to quickly get to the place or whatever decision it may be and those who seem to enjoy the slow pace, from time to time, to get to the destination in question.

EL PENSADOR: la gran confusión

When a significant issue for the national economy is placed on the government’s decision table – and this is already a national culture that should be exterminated -a great confusion is installed in which a mess of slippery and fallacious arguments arises, almost always promoted by a minority of politicians and trade unionists who act like politicians and whose radical ideas, in certain cases absurd or surpassed by reality, they interfere with a majority whose interpretation is based on free critical thinking and constructive adaptation to the changing and changing reality of the region that we are part of.
