Item description for Los '90 (Otro Traspie de Luz del Dia En Latinoamerica Atrapada Entre El Principe y El Principito) by Armando P. Ribas...
The 90s have proved a frustrating experience for Latin America. More so to those who consider Liberalism to be the fairest political system. After a seemingly positive start, a series of unclear administrative practices ensued, plagued by lack of control and a steep growth of government expenditure, most for corrupt and clientelistic reasons. This situation of high expectations about a Truth victory frustrated by political manouvers immediately recalls Juan Bautista Alberdis book "Peregrinacin de Luz el Da, o Viajes y aventuras de la Verdad en el Nuevo Mundo"*. As a sharp publicist Alberdi identified his villains with thos most easily identifiable at his time: Tartufo, don Basilio de Sevilla, Gil Blas de Santillana. Regrettably nowadays hipocrisy, bad faith and vile are common political practices, thus loosing their stealth. Todays state of the art political trap comes disguised as "pragmatism" or "idealism". These are much more difficult to detect, as their evil lurks behind the acromegalia of their positive characteristics. Thus, the return to the sources, and the understanding of how it is in the ideas of Kant and Hegel were the justification of totalitarism hides, of how the Jean Jaques Rousseau conception materialized the transformism by means of which the Lords word became replaced by the Will of the People in order to avail absolutism and the choking of individual liberties. In this sense Dr. Armando Ribas analysis enlightens and allows to undertand the new intellectual traps setup by the "industry of politics" in front of the Latin American citizen of good faith.
