And Esau sold Jacob his birthright for a bowl of pottage.
Genesis 25: 29-33
“In difficult times there are those who get confused, there are those who get discouraged, there are those who cower, there are those who soften, there are those who betray, there are those who desert. That happens in all times and in all revolutions. But also in difficult times It is when men and women are really tested; in difficult times is when they are tested, what is really worth something…”
Fidel Castro Ruz
It was the intellectual assassin of President Salvador Allende: Henry Kissinger who coined the phrase: “Whoever controls the oil will control the nations, whoever controls the food will control the peoples.“, as a doctrinal principle to twist the arm of the peoples that do not subordinate themselves to the empire and its claims.
On our country, and, said by the same spokesmen of the North American empire, a whole set of maneuvers and attacks of different intensity have been applied to demolish the entire revolutionary process.
On this aspect, one of the main versed in these destabilizing manuals used by the empire is precisely María Alejandra Díaz, who pointed out in the article Soft warfare, cognitive weapons (Aporrea 12/11/2019): “The cognitive conceptual devices applied by the transnational hegemonic corporate pole disintegrate nations and capture the human, through spiritual (and mental) control, destroying their sovereignty, freedom and will.”
In other words, he knows that the empire uses a system of codes, messages and metamessages that are aimed at breaking us from our psyche, it is no longer merely a conventional war, but a low-intensity war of a hybrid nature that seeks, as Master Sun stated tzu, defeat the enemy without attackingcreating the conditions for them to implode, in this regard Maria Alejandra Díaz tells us in the article Soft Wars (Aporrea 11/27/2019) :”Countries and peoples are attacked with weapons of mass, social and conceptual destruction of a new type, activated through legal, political, economic, technological, biological, social and cultural devices. They are “soft wars” that destroy psychological, institutional, political and cultural structures with messages, symbols and intelligence (Nye)”.
María Alejandra Díaz is clear that the current political-economic situation does not only respond to the increase in wages, which is fair and necessary to protect and strengthen, but that it is a problem that has other connotations with hidden actors seeking to restore a lackey right-wing government and subordinated to the empire and thus does not let them see in their article Are we at war? (Aporrea 10/06/2014) “To understand the context in which the events that occurred in the last year and a half after the death of President Chávez and even before 1998, when his figure emerged in national politics, took place in Venezuela, it is necessary to take into account some historical facts. that will provide us with arguments to understand that we are in the midst of an unconventional war, of low intensity and of a permanent nature. In everyday words, a little downpour, then, that does not get wet but soaks, and for this we must break down why and who is behind these strategies of permanent conflict in Venezuela.”
Regarding the blockade and the sanctions imposed by the North American empire, María Alejandra Diaz knows that our homeland is under siege and this state of siege to which we are subjected generates strong distortions within our economic system, the article Venezuela X-ray of a blockade (Aporrea 12/17/2014) tells us: “This blockade is also working internally: unleashed induced inflation, hoarding, low investment in technology to increase production, which translates into very low productivity of the national industry, irregular zonal distribution of products…”,
He also knows and is aware of the potential of President Nicolás Maduro to face these difficulties in this historical period that the revolution is experiencing, article by Aporrea Act of Faith for the Homeland (Aporrea 04/13/2013): “Chávez was not wrong when choosing Maduro, I say it without hindrance. Commitment, loyalty, sensitivity, clarity and humility. Comparing him with the Giant is unfair, they have their own style and more and more the latter is imposing it. I confess that by At first, I had my doubts because I felt that a weight that was too great for his shoulders had fallen on Maduro. Imagine having to carry the historical weight of the legacy of the greatest man in recent Venezuelan history. However, the Commander was skillful even in that Great Chávez, Gigante Chávez, he knew that in order to face the challenges that the crisis of the capitalist model imposes on us – just as he did – we needed a politician with a greater capacity to listen to his interior and to share experiences of deep and intense personal concentration, with a human spirituality, deeply humanist, this as the basis of another way of doing politics.”
María Alejandra Díaz does not act out of ignorance, I am sure of that, but she does not act out of revolutionary consciousness either, she knows that our fight is against the US empire and its political operators and satellites, she knows that the salary problem is a conjuncture product of the attacks of the right towards our homeland, she knows that the transformation process is slow and is riddled with deep contradictions typical of what has to die and has not died and what has to be born that has not yet been born, she knows that the only space for Giving the transformations is in the revolution, she knows that the right seeks to divide and create fissures in order to divide, demoralize and confuse Chavismo, generating half-truths that do not allow the militants to understand the problem in all its magnitude, becoming a factor of division and confusion.
I would like to think that she did not describe herself in the title of her article Cancer is curable, human misery does not (Aporrea 10/12/2012) where he exhorted us saying: “It is therefore necessary, in order to face the challenges that this crisis imposes on us, … a great capacity to listen … to share experiences of deep and intense personal concentration, as well as a high human spirituality, profoundly humanist, as the basis of another policy.”
