Mr Rodriguez Zapatero

Hopefully come a day when there are no more congresses of victims of terrorism because this is something as remote and as exotic as the biological species of Pleistocene. But I am afraid that it will not be so. In recent decades, terrorism has been endemic in the wide world: from Spain to Colombia, from Russia to Afghanistan. It has become, in addition, a random and unpredictable phenomenon to which nobody is alien and of which no one can escape, by many security measures to be adopted. Finally, the technology put at the service of terror has done more massive and more deadly: where a century ago there were only isolated assassinations, today cause hundreds of innocent and anonymous, dead victims simply because they were there.

The other aspect of the current terror is his character of show that reaches our homes through the TV, so banalizando the human suffering to do something comparable to any fiction dramatized by means of communication of masses. For all these reasons, we should not forget the terrorism nor trivialize it. Therefore, we must remember the victims and their pain as if it were our own, since all of us have been attacked in those killed or maimed in the name of all. We must not lose, thus the sensitivity to terrorism nor compassion solidarity with its victims. It should not make it any good citizen and even less those whom we elected to represent us: I am referring to the President of the Government, Mr Rodriguez Zapatero. Congress being held these days in Salamanca is not one minor or frivolous event, isn’t a fair agricultural machinery or a championship of marching bands that allow the delegate institutional presence in any person.

The fight against terrorism, its repudiation and the homage to its victims is something inherent to the democratic system. Democracy is precisely the absence of violence in ideological and political confrontation. Therefore, the defection today of the President of the Government is something absolutely unjustifiable.

Word Respect

The wars seem to not threaten the 21st century from the traditional viewpoint. Now come from inter-ethnic conflicts (Africa has been a pathetic example), of racism, of xenophobia, of terrorism, of extreme nationalism reborn as bonfires of religious intolerance as manifested in other mass killings. Specific areas of the planet case Europe – must face the aging of its population while it increases xenophobia towards migrant sectors must be that good part of their welfare state. We have already said that the peasant Word encompasses every day to fewer people, which indicates an urban concentration increasing, while migrations are similar in volume and characteristics. Thereto, in many cities are formed almost subjected to even apartheid slums and that, when in time, they burst, causing widespread damage. Problems, intermingle as do migration and urbanization. As others do with environmental degradation manifested in the seas, in the air and in the Earth.

It seems to lean the ethics as a priority task. Globalization advances as a phenomenon that justifies itself, an unstoppable advance, while policy stagnates, or better is immersed, to make way for authoritarian tendencies, to a possible widespread outbreak of totalitarianism. We have advocated for an encounter of cultures, a respect for plurality and diversity. Only with technology you can not, although we use it for the sake of knowledge and as a unique opportunity to learn to respect us by knowing that we acquire another. III are scarce the inventors of world. Protagonists of the theoretical vision of the policy are required. Here truths have been demolished and we must go on new forms of social organization. Who presides over the world is unbelief.

The old speeches are delegitimized. Someone has spoken of an ahistorical sky. If there is no philosophically approach emancipatory in the sense of giving the dream of a corpus of ideas nor will there be emancipation bass problems affecting us.
