[E no caso da Argentina deparando-se com um “Colapso Duplo”, um o da sua Rede Elétrica (colapsando completamente) o outro o da sua Seleção de Futebol (mesmo com o Lionel levando duas do Queiroz).]

Às Escuras

Buenos Aires

Argentina

(16 junho 2019)

 

E repentinamente com mais de 50 milhões de pessoas a ficarem sem Energia Elétrica, afetando no mínimo 5 países da América do Sul: Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Paraguai e Uruguai. E se no caso de 3 desses países os cortes de energia verificados foram curtos e locais (menos relevantes) já no caso da Argentina (onde se terá dado a falha inicial) e do Uruguai o colapso das suas grelhas elétricas foi inequívoco por total − atingindo 47,4 milhões de pessoas ou seja deixando estes dois países completamente às escuras. Com a rutura na Rede Elétrica na Argentina a dar-se pelas 10:06 UTC e com a distribuição de Eletricidade a ser reestabelecida cerca de 12 horas depois (pelas 22:00 UTC) a uns 77%, um pouco antes do mesmo suceder com o Uruguai a uns 88%. E nesse intervalo de tempo sem possibilidade de se recorrer à Rede Elétrica (temporariamente inoperacional) nada funcionando desde transportes a computadores “deixando todo o Mundo à Deriva” e ao alcance de “Algo ou de Alguém”. Não se confirmando para já a versão de ser uma ação envolvendo interesses Russos e/ou Chineses (associando-se este episódio ao que se passa na Venezuela), nem de se tratar apenas de mais uma (já cansativa) demonstração da existência real e à nossa volta (muito próximo de nós) de Seres Extraterrestres (para além dos já conhecidos “alienas mexicanos”).

Hoje ficamos a saber que enfiar um dedo no cu do adversário (num jogo de futebol) dá pelo menos dois jogos de suspensão. Ontem já sabia que evitar que o dedo entrasse no cu da vítima, penalizava toda a equipa e levava-a à eliminação. Como também já sabia ainda há mais tempo, que morder era o pior de todos os crimes.

O dedo de JARA no cu de CAVANI

 

O Futebol é um fenómeno social extremamente interessante e muito semelhante ao que se passa na área da Política. Que o digam os futebolistas: como por exemplo CAVANI (Uruguai) e JARA (Chile). O primeiro detentor da Copa América e futebolista de topo do futebol europeu (PSG), o segundo jogador de um clube alemão da primeira divisão (MAINZ) e mundialmente conhecido por ter apertado os tomates de outro uruguaio (SUAREZ/Barcelona). Ou seja poder e dinheiro e na ausência de mulheres, utilização de símbolos de índole sexual (como manifestações de virilidade). Como na política.

 

O que aconteceu foi o seguinte:
Num jogo de MATA-MATA entre as selecções de futebol do Chile e do Uruguai disputado na capital chilena (e por coincidência com um árbitro brasileiro um pouquinho caseiro), o jogo já ia na segunda parte e não se via nenhuma solução (continuava o 0-0 e logo a seguir eram as grandes penalidades);
Então um habitué nestas matérias teve um vislumbre e no momento preciso decidiu e actuou: enquanto CAVANI se encontrava de costas JARA (sem o avisar) enfiou-lhe um dedo no cu, para logo de seguida o primeiro responder com um pequeno encosto, que o segundo aproveitou para se atirar para o chão, como se tivesse sido violentamente agredido;
O resultado foi o segundo cartão amarelo para CAVANI e imediata expulsão (talvez por não ter consentido em ser violado pelo dedo do chileno), enquanto o predador sexual (de tomates e cus) continuou livremente em campo – com o acaso a acontecer como consequência da mera coincidência e com o Chile a eliminar o Uruguai por uns míseros 1-0 (11 contra 10).

 

E ainda castigaram fortemente SUAREZ (aquele a quem JARA antes apertara os tomates) apenas por uma dentada! Tarados (sexuais)!

“Vivendo num país Sem Presidente em que um indivíduo reclama desse estatuto apesar de nada querer fazer com ele – só pensando em si próprio e no grupo que o inclui e protege – vejamos então a vida dum verdadeiro Presidente e da sua experiência de vida: José Mujica”.

 

Uruguay's president José Mujica: no palace, no motorcade, no frills

(The Guardian)


José Mujica, the Uruguayan president, at his house in Montevideo

 

If anyone could claim to be leading by example in an age of austerity, it is José Mujica, Uruguay's president, who has forsworn a state palace in favour of a farmhouse, donates the vast bulk of his salary to social projects, flies economy class and drives an old Volkswagen Beetle.

 

But the former guerrilla fighter is clearly disgruntled by those who tag him "the world's poorest president" and – much as he would like others to adopt a more sober lifestyle – the 78-year-old has been in politics long enough to recognise the folly of claiming to be a model for anyone.

 

"If I asked people to live as I live, they would kill me," Mujica said during an interview in his small but cosy one-bedroom home set amid chrysanthemum fields outside Montevideo.

 

The president is a former member of the Tupamaros guerrilla group, which was notorious in the early 1970s for bank robberies, kidnappings and distributing stolen food and money among the poor. He was shot by police six times and spent 14 years in a military prison, much of it in dungeon-like conditions.

 

Since becoming leader of Uruguay in 2010, however, he has won plaudits worldwide for living within his means, decrying excessive consumption and pushing ahead with policies on same-sex marriage, abortion and cannabis legalisation that have reaffirmed Uruguay as the most socially liberal country in Latin America.

 

Praise has rolled in from all sides of the political spectrum. Mujica may be the only leftwing leader on the planet to win the favour of the Daily Mail, which lauded him as a trustworthy and charismatic figurehead in an article headlined: "Finally, A politician who DOESN'T fiddle his expenses."

 

But the man who is best known as Pepe says those who consider him poor fail to understand the meaning of wealth. "I'm not the poorest president. The poorest is the one who needs a lot to live," he said. "My lifestyle is a consequence of my wounds. I'm the son of my history. There have been years when I would have been happy just to have a mattress."

 

He shares the home with his wife, Lucía Topolansky, a leading member of Congress who has also served as acting president.

 

As I near the home of Uruguay's first couple, the only security detail is two guards parked on the approach road, and Mujica's three-legged dog, Manuela.

 

Mujica cuts an impressively unpolished figure. Wearing lived-in clothes and well-used footwear, the bushy-browed farmer who strolls out from the porch resembles an elderly Bilbo Baggins emerging from his Hobbit hole to scold an intrusive neighbour.

 

In conversation, he exudes a mix of warmth and cantankerousness, idealism about humanity's potential and a weariness with the modern world – at least outside the eminently sensible shire in which he lives.

 

He is proud of his homeland – one of the safest and least corrupt in the region – and describes Uruguay as "an island of refugees in a world of crazy people".

 

The country is proud of its social traditions. The government sets prices for essential commodities such as milk and provides free computers and education for every child.

 

Key energy and telecommunications industries are nationalised. Under Mujica's predecessor, Uruguay led the world in moves to restrict tobacco consumption. Earlier this week, it passed the world's most sweeping marijuana regulation law, which will give the state a major role in the legal production, distribution and sale of the drug.

 

Such actions have won praise and – along with progressive policies on abortion and gay marriage – strengthened Uruguay's reputation as a liberal country. But Mujica is almost as reluctant to accept this tag as he is to agree with the "poorest president" label.

 

"My country is not particularly open. These measures are logical," he said. "With marijuana, this is not about being more liberal. We want to take users away from clandestine dealers. But we will also restrict their right to smoke if they exceed sensible amounts of consumption. It is like alcohol. If you drink a bottle of whisky a day, then you should be treated as a sick person."

 

Uruguay's options to improve society are limited, he believes, by the power of global capital.

 

"I'm just sick of the way things are. We're in an age in which we can't live without accepting the logic of the market," he said. "Contemporary politics is all about short-term pragmatism. We have abandoned religion and philosophy … What we have left is the automatisation of doing what the market tells us."

 

The president lives within his means and promotes the use of renewable energy and recycling in his government's policies. At the United Nations' Rio+20 conference on sustainable development last year, he railed against the "blind obsession" to achieve growth through greater consumption. But, with Uruguay's economy ticking along at a growth rate of more than 3%, Mujica – somewhat grudgingly, it seems – accepts he must deliver material expansion.

"I'm president. I'm fighting for more work and more investment because people ask for more and more," he said. "I am trying to expand consumption but to diminish unnecessary consumption … I'm opposed to waste – of energy, or resources, or time. We need to build things that last. That's an ideal, but it may not be realistic because we live in an age of accumulation."

 

Asked for a solution to this contradiction, the president admits he doesn't have the answers, but the former Marxist said the search for a solution must be political. "We can almost recycle everything now. If we lived within our means – by being prudent – the 7 billion people in the world could have everything they needed. Global politics should be moving in that direction," he said. "But we think as people and countries, not as a species."

 

Mujica and his wife chat fondly about meetings with Che Guevara, and the president guesses he is probably the last leader in power to have met Mao Zedong, but he has mixed feelings about the recent revolts and protests in Brazil, Turkey, Egypt and elsewhere. "The world will always need revolution. That doesn't mean shooting and violence. A revolution is when you change your thinking. Confucianism and Christianity were both revolutionary," he said.

 

But he is cynical about demonstrations organised by social networks that quickly dissolve before they have a capacity to build anything lasting. "The protesters will probably finish up working for multinationals and dying of modern diseases. I hope that I am wrong about that."
