In these dark times, the word “truth” has become an archaism. A good example is the war in Ukraine, about which the Western political-media class has been practicing its specialty —to lie— for two years. As we have been stating since the very beginning and should be obvious by now (even to journalists), this was...

Just as the morning sun slowly but inexorably dissipates the fog, the passage of time ends up clearly drawing the lines that separate truth from deceit, fact from fiction. Almost a year ago, on the very day it began, I predicted the failure of the Ukrainian counteroffensive, so much extolled by the voluntarist Western media,...

The Soviet Communist dictatorship used to repeat its slogans over and over again so that they would be properly absorbed by the population. Likewise, the obsessive repetition of the term “sustainable” and the ubiquitous presence of the multicolor logo of the 2030 Agenda are symbols of the new totalitarianism that is creeping in through the...

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results”. Churchill’s famous maxim applies perfectly to the fight against gender violence in Spain. According to official government data, in the last two decades in Spain there has been an annual average of 58 homicides of women at the hands of their partners or ex-partners[1],...

In the first part of this article, I reflected on the political situation in Spain and wondered whether, beyond the psychopathy of its Prime Minister, the shortcomings of a mediocre Constitution and our historical inferiority complexes, the crisis we are experiencing also reflects a crisis of democracy itself. Has democracy —etymologically speaking, the government of...

The situation of dysfunctionality reached by our democracy, aggravated by the moral and intellectual decay to which our political and journalistic class has contributed so much in recent decades, makes it necessary to analyze the underlying reasons for the crisis that is dragging us into a political abyss of unforeseeable consequences. To do so, we...

A few days after the July Spanish elections I wrote an article entitled “Spain on the edge of the cliff” in which I took for granted the pact between the Socialist Party (PSOE) and its separatist allies. Now that this has been consummated after a theatrical tug-of-war, no one can remain impassive or pretend any...

We often accuse the political class of lacking values, but are politicians an exception or do they merely reflect the lack of values (or, rather, virtues) of the society that votes for them? Can the average voter value truth or honesty, for example, yet vote for psychopaths, pathological liars and scoundrels?                 “The city is...

I rarely write about Spanish politics, but the frustration of the expectations created with respect to an alternation in government in the last general elections warrants a reflection. Although any analysis made a posteriori -including this article- has less value than if it had been made a priori and should be taken with a grain...

In the Ukrainian war, the Western political and journalistic class continues to entangle itself in a fiction that is getting further and further away from reality. However, even the blatant lies of war propaganda should have their limits, because there will come a time when the curtain falls and the farce will be exposed. Veritas...
