Where did the political currency fall this year and where do you think it will go next year?
there is one in argentina’s irreversible trend towards a state of exception, It is not a military coup or under suspension of constitutional guarantees, but gives the impression that there is no conflict that can be resolved democratically.
The way the court has been handled and this state of justice makes political work very problematic. Everything seems to have been done to downplay politics.
You talked about the concept of “capitalism interfering with democracy”. can you develop it?
Yes, it is a global trend that various tools have succeeded in establishing a new symbolic universe, where There are many people who are indifferent to politics, The only thing that interferes with them is the presence of the media and the information being disseminated.

The formation of a historical theme is no longer possible, which is why a void has been left that no one knows how to fill. Another example is that the war in Europe could have generated a popular mobilization for peace and the rights of the most disadvantaged, and yet this resignation has been accepted.
national unity through football
When you saw the celebration for the World Cup of more than 5 million Argentines in the city, with a historical conscience about the subject, what a reflection Have you been born? Is there anything that is beyond football?
I am a fan of that popular joy and I have celebrated. I had also promised my grandchildren to watch the final together. it was a group event these people were not. It is very important because it turns all urban spaces into carnival retreats with performance elements.
collective obsession is just game but it has no political translation. There is no way to debate democratically when the opponents have broken the democratic agreement.
“It is very symbolic that society is indifferent to politics”
If you analyze the huge number of people in the festival, can you say that something else was needed, was lacking?
Yes, there is a need, in times of political impotence, to go out and solve it. world cup celebrations They were a day without impotence, desire a collective fact.
You say that the democratic agreement broke down because justice is not fair and if so, there is no way to solve problems when there is a conflict of interest. is that your proposal?
Yes, this is one of many offers. Because chats related to an assassination attempt or the judiciary can be lost in the air.
In Argentina it seems that nothing is of consequence, and if so it goes beyond what happens to the judicial system. There is nothing that leaves a mark that generates a new starting point. as a nation, It seems that we cannot accept the minimum agreement of not killing each other.

Social role of the media in Argentina
Are you saying that many of the incidents that you mentioned vanish into thin air because they are not visible because the media hides it? Or is it the society which does not give importance to the media even when it is published?
I agree with both descriptions. Society does not give enough importance to these relevant facts. There is no welcome to all that is actually incarnated. at least for now. Society is not concerned with gravity.
I understand the political position of the media, but if attempted murder Go to the second order. made a failed attempt to kill himself five minutes later Christina It was already being relatable and naturalized in various Argentine media.
The FdT targeted Horacio Rosatti for “the biggest judicial scandal in the history of Argentine democracy”.
Perhaps in search of irreconcilable reason, if justice can act the way you criticize, is it because society approves of it?
You have to scrutinize it very carefully. It must be recognized that the government has a pandemic, a war and a debt with the IMF. But this government is very formal and sometimes shocking decisions have to be taken.
Many times it is thought that “it is not worth doing because it is irrelevant”, but depending on the situation it is the only way to find a way to belong to society. There will be no choice but to escalate this conflict.
Beware of the “Selfie Urge”
Trying to take a more optimistic view, it can be said that a global sensibility is starting where doing things this way doesn’t do anything is beginning to be felt. Neo-fascism in Europe and book burning in the United States are some examples. It is devastating, but art, ideas, extremism and some media have answers.
Capitalism is not a problem of injustice, This is the world that is not going to be sustainable. Life itself would not be able to continue under these conditions. And only then will we see whether, as Freud thought, it is Eros or Thanatos.
