the totalitarian socialist speech in latin america

I want to share this with you. It’s an analysis on the fashionable totalitarian socialist speech in Latin America. I took the liberty of translating a piece of such majestic analysis made by a Spanish writer and journalist regarding the current situation of Latin America.
I, for one, think it’s one of the best analysis I’ve recently seen on the matter. It’s both excellent and disturbing at the same time as it fits sentence by sentence to reality.

César Vidal makes a semantic analysis regarding the socialist speech in South America.

Countries like Cuba, Venezuela, Argentina or Nicaragua, victims of totalitarian socialist systems, formed by an undisputed perverted oligarchy and by a misuse of the language and semantics –like the former USSR– are demonstrating again the totalitarian socialist system‘s failure which, historically and objectively speaking, is absolutely undeniable and irrefutable.

In Latin America there has never been a capitalist system –understood as free market, free competition and independent justice– but a continuation of the Hispanic wealth system, speaking in general terms. Such Hispanic wealth system understood as a richness which does not come from competition, talent or judicial independence, but from one’s proximity to political power. It is not for nothing that there has been no Steve Jobs or Bill Gates from these lands.
Thus, all these Latin American socialist systems have become oligarchic systems, such as Venezuela, whose wealth lives due to the aforementioned political power.

The Hispanic wealth system is obviously not the best legacy that Spain could leave Latin America — accusing of unpatriotic those who want freedom for their country and at the same time forgetting Jefferson’s words “the greatest patriot is the dissident one“, because above political interests, what this patriot really wants is the freedom and prosperity of his country.

Showing the falsity of language, making use of lies and perverting cherished values ​​will be the most important and difficult task of our times as it involves identifying, reporting and fighting how, behind the chatter in favor of peace and justice, seeds of violence, scarcity, poverty and hunger for power willing to remain a despotic and dominant form, are being seeded and sowed.
Such a task to perform for a clear purpose: for these beloved people to know and experiment the fruits of democracy, prosperity, peace and freedom.


Spanish summary:

César Vidal hace un análisis semántico del discurso socialista:
Países como Cuba, Venezuela, Argentina o Nicaragua, víctimas de sistemas socialistas totalitarios, pervertidos por una indiscutible formada oligarquía y por un mal uso del lenguaje y la semántica, al igual que la antigua URSS, están demostrando nuevamente el fracaso delsistema socialista totalitario que, en términos históricos y objetivos, es algo absolutamente innegable e irrefutable.

En Hispanoamérica no ha habido nunca un sistema capitalista (entendido como libre mercado, libre competencia y la justicia independiente), sino que, en términos generales, lo único que ha habido es una continuación del sistema hispánico de riqueza, esto es, una riqueza que no viene de la libre competencia, del talento o de la independencia judicial, sino de la cercanía con el poder político. No es por nada que no haya habido ningún Steve Jobs o Bill Gates provenientes de estas tierras. Así, todos estos sistemas socialistas latinoamericanos se han convertido en sistemas oligárquicos, como por ejemplo Venezuela, cuya riqueza vive del calor del poder. El sistema hispánico de riqueza no es de lo mejor que ha podido dejar España a Latinoamérica, tachando de antipatriotas a los que quieren la libertad de su patria, olvidando la frase de Jefferson “el mayor patriota es el disidente”, porque por encima de intereses políticos, lo que quiere es la prosperidad y libertad de su patria.

Mostrar la falsedad del lenguaje, el uso de la mentira, la perversión de valores queridos será la tarea más relevante de nuestro tiempo ya que implica identificar, denunciar y combatir cómo detrás de las charlatanerías en favor de la paz y la justicia se siembran las semillas de la violencia, la escasez, la miseria y un ansia de poder dispuesta a mantenerse de una forma despótica y dominante. Dicha tarea a realizar con una finalidad: que estos pueblos amados puedan conocer los frutos de la democracia, la prosperidad, la paz y la libertad.
