The Chamber of “Disputed” and “Disputed”

Our Lower House has already become a kind of “ring”, not yet boxing, but that goes to the “race” quickly transforming into the ring of strings surrounded by the vociferous gallery that pifies or applauds whoever mistreats the other more harshly or violently.
Is it the Roman circus that we insist on parody? Shameful is the spectacle of the opponents who with bombastic and bizarre facundias try to stand out, thus justifying the miserable and poor assent or approval of the citizenship, aggravated even more lately by “disputed” who neglect their obligations, avoiding votes of transcendent and essential interest for the country, plus the infamous lie of another that insults and offends “diagnosing” falsehoods to another parliamentarian.
People are tired, annoyed, annoyed with the irrelevance of endless arguments, of the “bad milk” and bad faith of unspeakable purposes, selfish and detestable at last. Is it possible that good sense, decency and the desire to cooperate will return, leaving aside the desire to hinder, hinder and overturn everything proposed, to the mere idea of starting to discuss a cardinal proposal, arranged with the best of wills?
“Chile at this moment is reuniting. We have one more opportunity and I think it can be done. The country needs to keep talking.” Alfredo Zamudio, director of the Mission in Chile of the Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue, said so.
We are bragging about nothing less than our much-criticized democracy, but it is the only perfectible and the least bad of the “let’s give thanks” that until now survive and that we have not been able to value.
Because, according to Winston Churchill: “Democracy is the worst system of government designed by man. With the exception of everyone else.”
And the great Chesterton said, “You can’t make a revolution to have democracy. You must have the democracy to make a revolution.”
And if we decide in Chile to consider democracy as the most just and convenient form of government to live in harmony, we will finally become convinced that in an ideal democracy the participation of citizens is the factor that materializes the changes, for which it is necessary that between rulers and citizens dialogues are established to achieve common objectives.
