Humanity took a big step. That day, according to the chronicle of Genesis – common to the three great religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam – the precise moment when Abraham was going to stick the dagger in his son Issac, the hand of God, who had asked him that sacrifice, stopped him and sent a lamb to replace his first-born.
From then on, human immolations of descendants by their parents were excluded from our civilization. Or at least that’s what I thought, until yesterday you can hear Mr. Jordi Cuixart, president of Òmnium Cultural, and one of the supposed “political prisoners”, his statements on the national radio of Catalonia, that is to say his. I must admit that listening them live gave me real chills. Because one thing is to assume a high rate of fanaticism and another to perceive it live and direct. Chicken skin.
To begin with, and to “well-intentioned” questions from the announcer, he poured out on the listeners the well-known repertoire of the already known “fake new’s” independentists about the legitimacy of these elections. In reference to the judges, he did not hesitate to point out “But these guys, how can they call elections now? But who do they think they are?” Not happy with it, he scrapped the argument stating that “two hundred thousand people will not be able to go to vote (sic). This is electoral” apartheid “. We Catalans are like the blacks of South Africa before the arrival of Mandela.
The thing had only just begun. Mr. Cuixart has a rather lax concept of what violence is, when not frankly interested because according to him “it is violence when I cannot act as a father because I am in jail and instead the one penalized are my children.” Although apparently preventing the development of a judicial action, as happened in the Ministry of Economy in September 2017, and climbing on top of a Civil Guard jeep while TV3 was broadcasting it live must be part of some troupe of the Cádiz carnival.
However, the biggest delirium began next when he asked “Are we willing that [our children] can spend long periods in prison so that this country can freely decide what its political future should be? If the answer is yes, we will have taken a giant step. ” That idea is a simple monstrosity, clearly contranature that not even Nietzsche himself would have thought of. Human beings always think of the best for their offspring, hence ideas such as “a better future”, “how to build a future” or “be a person of benefit tomorrow” Is prison the best legacy we can leave them? Apparently yes, for Mr. Cuixart that he has recently released paternity.
As if all this were not enough for the president of Omniun Cultural we should not complain much either because this is undoubtedly a real improvement: “Notice that 50, 75, 100 years ago people put their children at the forefront of the fight and received shots. Thank God we are clear that this is our limit. Here we are clear that no, that we will not send our children to the fighting front. They have the tanks, they can kill if they want, we will not kill anyone. “
Of course not. They limit themselves, like the execrable President Torra, to calling for uprising by telling the CDRs, “press, press.” Then come the attempts to occupy the airport or the bonfires in the heart of Paseo de Gracia. Nothing new in this lively longing felt by the independence movement for the thirties of the last century. Those times when the politicians of the Republic and Companys himself called up the “bottle generation” to launch them into the battle of the Ebro, knowing full well that the war was definitely lost and that the sacrifice of human lives would be perfectly useless .
Mr. Cuixart intends to seize nothing less than the future of the children, as has only been carried out by totalitarian regimes that superimposed the supreme interests of the supposed nation to the rights of individuals, to simple life. Not in vain did Lamartine write said already in 1841 “Nation! High-sounding word to say barbarism”.
