Homogeneous peoples and other political stories.

(De los pueblos homogéneos y otros cuentos politicos.)

In times of Aristotle attributed to Periander of Corinth the eliminate all protruding, perhaps because the dream of every totalitarian tyrant is that citizens are as identical as possible, that society is something homogeneous bullying . High in our times was Maoism that all Chinese dressed in uniform for decades. But underneath its aspiration is impossible because all societies are plural; such plurals as number of individuals have.

In democracies the aspiration of bullying is always present in those who govern, but the way to get a despotic government is demagoguery. Demagogues, for Aristotle, were the ones who were always trying to flatter the people, and that has not changed today. And the most common form of flattery is the nationalists who try to convince their citizens that they are special, different from others, even identical to each other. They know that fool most, but always act as if that identity really existed, as if the community was governed or intend to conduct a homogeneous whole.

From the fiction that society, the region, the nation, are homogeneous and radically different from others, is necessary for the nationalist discourse. In fact, when conflicts arise with other party not ever speak or governments but of Catalonia, the Basque Country, Galicia… They use the society in which they live as if it were identical to themselves in culture, interests, ideas or desires, to confront others or those which seek to separate.

We’re seeing these days with the confrontation of certain associations, political parties and the government’s own Catalan Generalitat, against the Spanish government. In his speech, it is always a conflict between Catalonia and Spain, not between them and the state government. Need invested with all the Catalan people, although this is plural, distinct and divergent ideals and interests. That the significant minority who participated in the 11th row of the past all dress in a single programmed color was shown as part of citizenship, at least that day, he was influenced by the desire of the organizers of uniform to all. And this, like it or not, not made ​​them freer, but the opposite.

The other reason for treating a community as a homogeneous whole is invest it in a fictitious personality, than the individuals who compose it, and assign rights are actually rights of the individual, not of society as such. The same rights do not hesitate to deny individual citizens who are part of that society, but who disagree with them, they were granted an imaginary all intended to function as a single man and with the identity of demagogues.

Needless to say, the only nationalist demagoguery leads to totalitarianism, if he can succeed. Where and ruled for decades, as in Catalonia, society appears more widespread identical to the idea, because there is a part of society that has been broken, intellectually, and other muted in practice. And that is independent of that in today’s reality, Catalan citizens are much less than the other Spanish than they were centuries ago.
