It is a phenomenon in recent years that large segments of Latin America have allowed themselves to shift to the left. Logical precautions against this shift have been stifled by warnings from the right and loyal opponents who do not even realize that this “left” is not just a reissue of the classic left.
The New Left has been “reconfigured” by incorporating Gramsci’s future, which today is already clearly present, and expanding it into a comprehensive agenda where the term proletariat incorporates the new alienations of the present time that must be abolished.
This expansion of the left already moving from Mexico to Chile along the Pacific Ocean, with some Central American exceptions, can be read as the empirical, rather than theoretical, failure of the neoliberal economic model, which actually produced a greater concentration of capital in fewer hands, but this It has not, after more than forty years, succeeded in spreading to the rest of the increasingly impoverished population, regime theorists have asserted.
The deepening of the poverty of the poor, and the deterioration of the conditions of the middle class at its various levels, made these sectors the hand at the helm, with the rush of active and organized minorities, against the right. Sections of the wing that defend status to the extent that it is preferred.
It is possible that the United States would “allow” these turns as social outlets full of hope, in the same way that in the past it associated, encouraged, and encouraged all kinds of dictators in Latin America, sold them arms and supported them as long as it was convenient. they. Our continent was not only America’s backyard, but also the arena of ideological, political, military and economic maneuvers, a field of experiments where failures are always paid for by the population and successes are paid only to them and their associates, read presidents, rulers and more than one eminent businessman.
One can imagine the atmosphere created by Colombian social networks in the face of the victory of the left, on the one hand, lofty speeches that everything will now be better, and on the other, dramatic denunciations that Colombia will “break up”, some dreaming with absolute belief that the capitalist oligarchy and plutocratic regimes will leave Eventually behind her, others take their fortunes out of the country, so Fidel won’t steal them.
For now, it is time to entertain the left, while the right suffers, victim of its ghosts and failure to promote a greater social level. But the winners struggle even more with the prospect of not being able to deliver on their election promises, not having all the resources needed, seeing how their ranks swell as the pilots arrive, always looking for the protective shadow of the winner no matter what they know, and determined to keep doing what they did right, but now From the left, herein lies their tremendous ability to be versatile.
A new success of populism is, of course, social populism, which moves like water in a pinch from right to left, because neither one nor the other is able to meet people’s expectations.
