For radical extremes to win, Felipe Kast ensures that they need the moderate world to be marginalized from the process. On Tuesday, September 8, Deputy Gabriel Boric accused of «pure tacticism devoid of convictions» to those from Chile Vamos are in the apprehend. He spoke of «a couple of isolated figures» being that in Political Evolution is not a minority the group of people who believe in the need for a New Constitution. A large number of militants do so, would say former President Hernán Larraín, with the dream of possessing a fundamental charter that is valid for every active member of the Chilean state who holds political rights and submits to his laws. They seek to make the charter legitimized through democracy; apruebo ultimately does not belong to any ideological position. If most of the people who make up Evópoli will vote I approve, even if certain politicians want to believe otherwise, it is worth questioning why Boric criticizes an alleged misleading and saturated play of rhetorical account.
It gives the feeling that current politics focuses on what Christopher Bellolio determined as «selecting, patrolling and amplifying the unwilderment of the adversary». There is no shortage of Chilean leaders who, transversely, invest almost all their time in this dynamic. Surely the DEPUTY ignores the party’s not being made by only their parliamentarians or ministers or mayors. Perhaps he spends too much on finding oversights of the government, one who has not done him the difficult task with his awkwardness and dissatisfiedness. It’s even a falsehood to tweet about «a couple of isolated figures from their parties» who are about the apprehend. The above statement sins as a tending to elude truth and righteousness. Treating those they will approve as loose ends is insulting.
Oscar Contardo said in one of his writings that it is a very good exercise to refresh public memory. Since, at least, 2014 that Evópoli has been for a New Constitution. As a party they decided less than a month ago to move from the apprehend to freedom of action before the plebiscite, an option that was rejected by 40% of the votes of political advisers who wanted to stand by the apruebo. How to forget also that a couple of months ago, Gabriel Boric’s own political party decided to suspend militancy and several, including Mayor Sharp, renounced theirs because of the Magellanic MP’s decision to join the november 15 agreement.
The constituent process, as Daniel Mansuy explained, does not belong to the Broad Front. In the MRI, when the political evolution database was consulted 6 months ago, the apruebo drew 60%. Many support the change of constitution since long before the social outburst and from the 18th with much more force. From the beginning voices were raised by the apruebo between leaders of the center-right, working some since before the pandemic. Apruebo is a cross-cutting option, because defending a more participatory democracy, Ricardo Lagos would say, «has no political color».
Mr Boric does not take into account that in politics there must be issues which allow charitable interpretation, which not everything is black and white; taking out matters of context to make them seem un guessed is a useless and pathetic practice, typical of the political elite of which he is a part and, at the same time, so much critical.
In our country, one of the problems that — from time to time – risks flooding the public sphere continues to exist. The secret flooding of the public sphere, that’s what the film is called. It is the belief that it is sufficient to use something that we feel as just so that, then, it is thought that all means intended to promote it are also just; conviction that the end justifies the means. There are plenty of those citizens who blindly believe that it is enough to feel the fervor of justice so that all other duties are expendable. They think that if one demand is felt as fair, our duties to others—respecting their intimacy among themselves, accepting the discrepancy, giving reasons—disappear, as if they existed only when the other is very much in accordance with what we think.
It now comes up on September 11th and, if circumstances remain, you may notice the same thing. A lack of respect for diverse ideas overwhelms political debate, that rudeness described by Alfredo Jocelyn Holt for opposing beliefs—especially from the right in the case of the rememoration of the coup d’am—that is reflected in the coarseness towards the practices of others when they differyou’re on your own.
Staying in the mere headline and then cutting, pasting and publishing some moral condemnation about it is a propensity and inclination in politicians like Gabriel Boric towards his certain ends. Perhaps the mistake one makes, according to Patricio Navia, is to expect them to behave higher. It draws a lot of attention how some of the new litters are in that inquisitor wave, even more so than those of the old politics that denigrate so much.
His party passed Boric to the supreme court for signing the constituent pact. He signed on his own and they fragmented; the Broad Front was broke by the plebiscite, and it turns out that Gabriel now has the brazenness to plead for the lack of convictions. Now you want to monopolize the pact you despised? Let’s hope they leave moral superiorities out.
