Anyone making a brief visit to what is discussed in Spain three years here, can fall into the trap of thinking that we are in a bright (not sure if lightning transient mode or one lasting like the sun) and moved debate on almost everything. Heaven and earth are questioned, and everything between them is not less, by some and by others. Church, monarchy, republic, political parties, regional governments, financial institutions, judges and magistrates, councils, sports organizations, teachers, doctors, artists, etc., are the target of criticism, the apparent reformist or revolutionary spirit, the anarchic cynicism or shift the profiteers.
But one little deeper into the discussion starts listening melodies monotone, doctrinal discourses, common places, sectarian proclamations without much rigor and with an excess of dissonance that makes the whole country look like an orchestra that had gone mad, in which each musician and monotonously repeated touch of a tune different from all others, to which the vast audience starts to wonder to what was there and had paid the entrance. Especially since this is increasingly costly and inevitable and witness the spectacle, mandatory.
And we can not reduce guilt (if any) to the political world, as the press, television, universities, trade unions and associations with multiple and diverse backgrounds participate inharmonious noise generation. The public, the people, or that people who form the majority, we are making it as we can, with our ingenuity and our work, and the murmur of what we might call the social aristocracy makes us upset increasingly addled and irrational . For freedom of expression and criticism has nothing to do with it, so much worth to say nonsense to make something deep and reasoned.
In the set of irrational drivel both can go one claiming to be pursued or fine mothers who have children with disabilities, as can be proposed (with book included) political regime change because the head of state is something womanizer or has a son scoundrel, ending the regions because suddenly we discovered that we are rich and some are still bent on squandering; break Spain into pieces and then attach these to the pins of an alleged federalism would Gilead Balm for secessionist forward four fools . And you add the missing in my speech …
And all that stood in most cases (not all) by those who until recently told us that we lived in the democratic paradise, for those who have governed, published, studied, worked in institutions, in a system that stubbornness seemed to have settled the old policy and was the admiration of half the universe. It took about a year of crisis for that scene has turned against his past and his sayings. There are also corrupt and wasteful, as there were and will be, but blame the system is so foolish as to say that it has been our gun which killed the neighbor when we have tightened the trigger.
We have to change things, no doubt, more than you say most of those involved in the des-concert. But human error can not be solved by changing the rules of the game, nor legalizing crimes are solved crime. It takes agreement and common sense. Less intellectual infantilism. More capacity for analysis, without the scourge of trying to impose specific solutions and seek to justify petty. Less grimy and outdated prescriptions. More effectiveness in justice to pay their crimes rather those who commit to pay for it the whole society with useless experiments. Because in the end, if you change your outfit but you do not wash smelly will follow with the same parasites that before you’ve had as much invested in pure silk or wool.
And it is very easy to insult people, demand his resignation, to have them processed, recognize after that failures are actually the responsibility of individual citizens and then look for another party to demand a change of system not guarantee at all morality of society and the ethics of those who govern. Or calm our minds to think, to seek common ground, to discern between the utopian and the possible, or all that frenzy will have little smarter and a lot of political delirium. And what is worse, it will be useless and leave you in despair to those who still rely on any of the factions, in one of his idols vociferous.
