EDITORIAL: EE.UU. ¿La caída de los dioses?

The US economy is looking for a way out of a progressively suffocating situation. The approval of the Inflation Reduction Act, a mega-measure of 400,000 million dollars that will be financed with public debt, indicates the intention of the United States to return to state aid to its companies and, in perspective, to reconvert the mercantilist hysteria in force since 1989 in protectionism.

EL PENSADOR: DISUASIÓN «Falta sin Aviso»

What’s wrong with Minister Heber? Tiredness, anemia? No no. In any case, the opposite: excitement. It has plunged headlong into the center of a disorderly and highly politicized debate on security, which includes figures for the reduction in crime, questioning the construction of those figures, contradictions, abrupt and even absurd comparisons with previous administrations and a string of plans to improve police services and their effectiveness, in the midst of complaints of internal corruption in the Headquarters and projects -in some cases delusional- on the rehabilitation of both prisoners and those released after serving their sentences.

EL PENSADOR: EL VALOR DE LAS PALABRAS

A few years ago, during a television report, the Argentine philosopher and writer Santiago Kovladoff outlined an intelligent reasoning when analyzing the increasingly conflictive democratic coexistence in his country – today it is decidedly worse, it must be admitted – focusing on the impoverishment of language.

EL PENSADOR: CRECE EL ESCEPTICISMO

In a country delicately balancing on a fine wire so as not to rush into a crisis that could jeopardize the immediate future, there is a majority of politicians who, shamelessly, have anticipated foreseeable dates, adapting them to their anxiety and ambitions, launching into a brutal pre-election campaign.

EDITORIAL: ¡PAZ! ¡PAZ! !PAZ! POR LA HUMANIDAD STOP A LA GUERRA EN UCRANIA Y EN EL MUNDO

We know that the economic and political crisis in France and Germany, Spain and Italy, in the entire EU is systemic and does not start with the invasion and the war in Ukraine. We know that Putin felt surrounded, recklessly harassed and harassed by Joe Biden, who threatened him and treated him as an outcast, to the point of making him fear for his safety and that of Russia. This did not give him any right to invade the Ukraine, since he went and goes with the trade. Putin knew it, and, even so, he made the mistake-horror of agreeing to play that Machiavellian geopolitical game of chess, with high-powered and high-precision weapons, excellent for destroying what will later be rebuilt newer and bigger, that there is no greater business than the war itself, as long as taxpayers and innocent victims pay the bills. Putin lost his sense of reality when he entered the Ukraine on February 24, 2022 like a deranged elephant in the china shop. If he wanted to defend Crimea, and the pro-Russian population of Donbass, his thing was to have put his armored divisions on alert and defense, without firing the first shot, or crossing the borders and attacking kyiv. But Putin enters the game of the USA, the maximum beneficiary, by managing to divide and break Europe, block Russia’s assets and seize its energy market in the EU, after turning Putin into Hitler, and Russia, into the incarnation of evil absolutely for the EU. NOT! for Global Village. Continúa leyendo EDITORIAL: ¡PAZ! ¡PAZ! !PAZ! POR LA HUMANIDAD STOP A LA GUERRA EN UCRANIA Y EN EL MUNDO

EL PENSADOR: LA GRAN MATERIA PENDIENTE

In our country, in the middle of the period of any government -from this point of view, when describing it, it can be profoundly ironic-, when it is time to fulfill pre-electoral promises and present essential projects for the future in order to find sufficient consensus , politics is transformed, with the basic thrust of the opposition, in a carnival of sticks thrown at the wheels of everything that must move, in the celebration of suspicion, lies and insults as legitimate resources and, ultimately, in the drawing of a frightful shadow that will obscure all intelligence that society expects and will give way to the umpteenth advance of the umpteenth campaign in fits and starts with a view only to sit on the soft seat of power, no matter how much time is left before the votes enter the polls.

EL PENSADOR: BENEVOLENCIA Y PROPÓSITOS COMUNES

The history of humanity has been teaching, for a long time, that a close interdependence -whether between political forces of the same country, or between it and all the others with which it maintains stable relations- requires common purposes if disaster is to be avoided. . And constructive common purposes will not prevail unless some community of sentiment is formed. Continúa leyendo EL PENSADOR: BENEVOLENCIA Y PROPÓSITOS COMUNES

The war of Biden and Putin in the Ukraine regardless of how the long-awaited PEACE ends and is achieved, deals a treacherous and deadly blow to the fruitful and necessary unity of the authentic Europe from Finisterre to the Urals; of which the EU, being today the essential part, the driving force, is not and will never be the whole, and cannot be, survive and grow free and powerful even with Ukraine, if it excludes Russia, its vast territory and incalculable natural reserves.

PIERDE Y PAGA LA UE, GANA (por ahora) BIDEN – OTAN y El Poder de las Familias del Gas, Petróleo, Fábricas de Armas POR EL ABSURDO ERROR-HORROR DE PUTIN, AL INVADIR UCRANIA

To see the course of the war between Biden and Putin in Ukraine is to see how Putin loses the papers and all the reasons for invading it. What, the repeated failure of the USA and NATO to comply with what they promised a naïve Russia, perplexed and defenseless, when it needed to turn the page and bury the cold war, when the USSR was shipwrecked. The Maiden coup d’état -model USA- in February 1914. Zelensky’s failure to comply with the Minsk agreements and the historic and repeated encirclement and harassment by NATO, now with the support of the Ukrainian government to keep Moscow within reach of its missiles, can explain, but not justify the invasion and war in Ukraine. We have gone from bad to much worse, today, Russia with more NATO, and the EU more cold and ruin.

EL PENSADOR: LA PREPARACIÓN DEL POLÍTICO

There is a simple exercise -obviously simpler the more intellectual capacity and good intentions the person who undertakes it has- that citizens could do about politics, the object of so much dislike and distrust today: appeal to memory, history books and any other way that allows us to remember if it is true that the quality of those who exercise it has been progressively diminishing at least since the middle of the last century.

EL PENSADOR: ¡Ah QUÉ CÓMODO LIMBO..!

If I had the obligation to define the attitude of Uruguayan politics – all of it, government and opposition, although the generalization makes it uncomfortable – in the face of the ups and downs that are shaking the region, with different intensity depending on which country we are talking about, I would need, to be the civilized as possible, appeal to a metaphor.

El PENSADOR: DETALLES MÍNIMOS, GRANDES PROBLEMAS

When we talk about improving coexistence in our society, the first thing to understand is summed up in a school-level phrase, even though that is the root of many misunderstandings and conflicts: “My rights can reach the limit where the rights of others». We all have constitutional rights in a democratic State, as well as obligations, but for both, no one ignores that there are limits. Continúa leyendo El PENSADOR: DETALLES MÍNIMOS, GRANDES PROBLEMAS

Now that we are just a few steps away from deciding on the educational reform project – or so the facts seem to indicate – I feel the impulse, even at the risk of being labeled as simplistic, to insist that the essential point is learning to read correctly, to develop comprehension and, in parallel, speak, write and think better.

The world of the future will be inextricably linked to the formation of the personality of those who, day by day, awaken to life.

El Estrecho camino entre Bruselas y Samarcanda

The EU’s path towards a price cap for Russian hydrocarbons seems difficult. A unified reading for 27 countries, with 27 different energy realities, solely on the basis of a political motion, seems hardly credible. The Italian proposal to extend the price cap to all suppliers, regardless of their nationality, is followed by four other countries, while three believe that it should only apply to Russian gas (but this would be a new sanction on Russia, not a political energy saving). As the necessary unanimity did not exist, it was postponed to the mid-October meeting. If it was supposed to be a show of determination and unity, for now it is a sign of weakness and fragmentation.

The International Energy Agency, a structure dependent on the OECD, in its monthly report on the oil market, reports that the impact of Western sanctions on Russian energy exports has so far been essentially nil. The OECD – Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development – is not based in Moscow. It is an organization based in Paris of which 36 countries are part, including the United States, almost the entire European Union, Japan, Australia and Canada, Mexico and Chile, Switzerland and Turkey. As of June 1, 2021, the Secretary General of the OECD is the Australian Mathias Cormann. Continúa leyendo EDITORIAL: UE y RUSIA, LOS SANCIONADORES SANCIONADOS.
