I was interested in looking into the biblical text for the quote about a divided kingdom and found in Mark’s Gospel chapter 12, verse 25, in the New Testament, the passage translated directly from the Greek, which says: “But Jesus, teaching their meditations, said to them: Every kingdom divided against itself is desolate, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.”
My curiosity for this passage came at the center of interest in what is happening, at this moment, in our country, now with the deepening of the institutional crisis among the authorities of the Republic, with the expenditure of energy that can be directed to trying to equalize the grave national problems of the present.
Adhering to a scenario pre-established from the first day of the presidency, we see a script for the permanent creation of crises, one would think, the transformative formula for masking the managerial inefficiency that has been evident every day since January 1st. 2019.
With a queue of 14 million unemployed, with an absolute lack of public policies to generate employment, income or activity that could give, at least, the dignity of a father or mother to the family to ensure their sustenance and livelihood, with the economic stagnation exploding from the countryside to the city, with The disturbing international spectacle of non-acceptance of Brazilian products due to non-compliance with the environment and, above all, the absurd governmental chaos arising from the central plateau, I do not see how the behavior of the current incumbent of the chair of the head of state is generating endless new institutional crises.
We are still emerging from the worst health crisis the world has faced this century, and we are facing a serious economic crisis that is making Brazil suffer from the process of deindustrialization, with a large part of our industrial complex malfunctioning or losing competitiveness, and we are also suffering from the administrative inability to invest in the direction of a new economy Because, yes, a revolution is in progress and we are quite sure that Brazil is lagging further and further, despite the eventual success of one sector or another of our economy that manages to break through the bubble of government stagnation we are currently in.
We know that it is not possible for us to predict the entire future and indicate the path to take, but we can say with absolute confidence that the longer it takes to analyze the problem, the later the solution will come. This is when you can access it.
The challenge of taking the new paths of the economy is absurdly large, and instead of focusing on it, we see a (wrong) government doing nothing to advance projects and actions in terms of qualifying a structural program that puts Brazil in the locomotive of development.
We waste time and energy with a clumsy government team, preferring harmless and fruitless conflict, ignoring the real needs of our people.
Brazil is missing the history wagon and bypassing the most basic notions of public administration, it certainly cannot see a way forward.
The only manual or instruction manual in existence today in the central plateau seems to indicate institutional hostility and polarizing controversy.
Until the end of this quarter, we can say that we will not have the minimum detail of some principles or regiment which leads us as a nation to the minimum provision to face the real national problems, which are not few.
It is not even possible to see an honest possibility to discuss how to build and envision the economy, with a project that brings the economically active population back to the market, and creates new opportunities for the creative economy to integrate our youth, which has set minimum standards of obedience to the imperative of dignity by working for our people.
There is not even a discussion of reformulating a system that, over the past few decades, has done nothing but re-check rentierism and speculation at the expense of production.
It is inconceivable that we can build a new state merely by re-liberating the old formulas of capital reward and without proposing production that circulates goods on the basis of knowledge of the new economy, where we are only conditioned to undertake the production of goods.
But this debate, over time and by the incumbent ruler, seems surreal because we see our country collapsing in the face of a new crisis, a crisis that has been nurtured by a “studied cause”, once again, by those who have already revealed not the slightest appreciation of the position they occupy and the responsibilities arising from it .
Our home is divided and keeping it standing will be a daunting task.
That is why I am betting on the wisdom of our people to correct this misguided path during this year’s elections.
After all, as Billy Blanco said, “What makes you laugh, makes you cry. It’s just a matter of weight and measure. The problem of time and space. But it’s all about life. What makes you laugh makes you cry.”
