Next Sunday, Argentina elects president (EFE)
Argentina is risking its head. The disconcerting political and even personality meanderings, lack of greatness, smallness or clumsiness led, in turbulent waters and in a very short time, to a victory that was discounted, that of Together for Change, as a result of the above, came to nothing. Cristina, who has an important qualification in strategic matters, caught it immediately.

It was Monterroso’s famous mini-story: ”When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there. It was there”. He realized that they were, despite the disastrous government management: it was possible, if he put himself to the one he could serve.

It was – said a respectable and great politician – the opportunity to achieve a landslide victory. Definitive. And not. The dispute within Together for Change oxidized what was a breeze, such was the degree of dispersion, flight, painful story, poorly diagnosed data of reality: it is difficult to find a longer and worse government in the twilight zone where they rise islands of rotten water to the surface. Impossible. Shame, disenchantment, evidence of traps and pretenses, a national left, something similar, grotesque and ready to liquidate a cycle that goes back to dates much further away than those of the Kirchnerist era: to the days of ’45. The idea is not criticism but only historical.
With Perón and Castro, they marked the 20th century in Latin America, antithetical and in some points confluent: an attempt was made to build a bridge between the two – the general’s delegate, John William Cooke and his wife, Alicia Eguren – tried to unite them – and they did not It didn’t work at all for several reasons, the most important being the deep-rooted phobic anti-communism based on models that had nothing to do with the Argentinian one.

Nobody, or few, assumed that Pontiff Jorge Bergoglio’s first trip was to Cuba: Fidel maintained his Jesuit training and education as his conduct and ideological paths. This is how things change and we never bathe in the same river because it is always another, it flows, the only thing permanent is change.
I remember, as soon as I crossed the Bolívar Street School, I felt great grief when it was learned that Ernesto Guevara had died. Today he seems like a photogenic man to me.
Taxi driver theorem.
He was a mature man and refused GPS. A hot afternoon, few cars on Alem Avenue. We dialogue about the situation and the elections, the candidates. “Look,” he told me, “no matter who wins, I’m going to have to get up at four-thirty, drink some mates alone at night, open the taxi without wanting to be robbed, open it, prepare everything, keep the joint hidden somewhere and make twelve hours with a stop for the hard-boiled egg that my wife prepared for me with a Coke – she will call me several times to order something, it never fails – and I will return to eat and get some sleep.
Hypothesis, thesis and proof, the theorem was solved. As a corollary, everything mentioned above will become worse, because it will inevitably be adjusted. Pasted with barrel paste from a modest neighborhood, Together for Change disperses. It goes from port to starboard, roll, I think the sailors say, it seems in emergency and shipwreck. The hardline is approaching a disruptive and strange candidate, although with a call that three years ago no one could understand either the proposals or who it was about.
Sergio – let’s speak with some civility, there are few of us – intelligent, astute, quick, he puts the card of his life on the table. In theory, the dollar, inflation, poverty, the return to illiteracy, the impoverished heads of the average incapable of evaluating or thinking anything, the emotional and psychological factors rise, the stale slogans and, on the side, bitter pragmatism: everything We know that, what could come, no. The guillotine of the networks falls all the time on the necks of the powerful candidate, that which was and is now different, being both one and the other, the promise of a happy future from the same space that integrates and is regrettable. .
It doesn’t matter, once again Cristina: in politics, the worst grievances last six months. Javier tears the form and the norm of a democracy – which we need to sustain – of low intensity but one, he finds the concept of caste, anarchic liberalism plunges him into embarrassing situations, he is attacked by defenders of the poor who become impoverished, by educators and defenders of public education that they have miserably destroyed. The personality, the outbursts of anger in front of anyone he considers ignorant of an irrefutable truth, the look at times like Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange, appear with behavioral difficulties but he is not psychotic, he is not crazy.
Now, to what comes with this package and its title: the obligation to accept defeat for either of the two must be clearly established. Argentina is risking its head. They will vote with fury or with resignation. Argentines, in reality, would dream of the true possibility of glimpseing some future, a light, a drizzle of absent happiness.
If Taylor Swift could run, she would get an almost plebiscitary election, let’s say. But not. In any case, the die is not cast. These are hours of tension that not only involve domestic reality but also international politics. Rosendo Fraga tells us – attention – that in the two or three days before the vote there is always an acceleration and a definition.
It will then be seen how we will live under the volcano.
