In Argentina, on the contrary, history is taught in such a manner
that younger generations are explained nothing of what happened
before the 1976 coup. The teaching of history in Argentinian schools
tends to generate a fearful cast of mind, of "let us keep this that
we have lest the military come back again". I will try to scan and
post an article by a relative of a disappeared high school girl on
this manipulation of consciousness, but this will have to wait till
next week.

I understand and share Julio's worries. Yesterday, in his only answer
to the strike, De la Rúa insisted on that no negotiation would set
him back in the measures he has already taken, and also insisted in
that the unionists "had done nothing to stop Menem and Menemism",
which in the case of Moyano is a slander and a lie. De la Rúa
himself, of course, has never been at a mobilization led by the MTA
to which Moyano belongs. But the President of the Radical Party, the
Vice President of Argentina, the Minister of the Interior, and lots
more have. What really matters, however, is to install a lie as a
truth. This is a frequent mechanism, particularly in Latin America.

We Argentinians are lucky that we had an incissive intellectual such
as Arturo Jauretche, who decoded the system of organized nonsense
that constitutes the structure of mind in a colonial country, so that
when we smell a rat there are good chances that the rat is there.

What we should claim for is, here as on other realms of life, "Hands
off Latin America!". It is we who must bury our dead. If we do not do
it OUR way, they will be buried the way imperialism wants them to be

That is, we shall kill them twice.
