Excelentes profesionales, de una gran institución académica, con supremacía mundial, primero Dios sigo teniendo la oportunidad de recibir más de esos conocimientos estratégicos prospectivos, para bien de mi país, Guatemala.
[14:43, 3/5/2018] Marguevara: Lo sucedido el 19 de abril en Nicaragua rebasa cualquier canon. Personalmente, me suscribo a temas internacionales. Pero este asunto fresco es una tragedia inaceptable que a todos nos ha conmovido. Y no puede pasar inadvertido por la irreflexión de los que usan el poder, sin respetar a los que tienen una conciencia distinta, unos valores diversos, y creen en la libertad como bien supremo. Mi punto: la cantaleta ideológica vendida se desmorona por sus propios errores: la mentira, el engaño y la represión. Se desgajaron las máscaras. Se corrieron los telones. El drama dejó al descubierto la farsa de luces tenebrosas. Moros y cristianos ahora ven las intenciones en los descubiertos rostros y las miradas culpables de los que manejan el poder total. No hay alternativas a la democracia liberal occidental. El socialismo latinoamericano es un mendrugo envenenado, una trampa grotesca, una vehemente obsesión dictatorial de frutos palpables. Venezuela es un Estado fallido; Cuba un país-rehén desde hace medio siglo; Bolivia una sociedad dividida y enfrentada, gobernada por un títere ignaro; y en Nicaragua han ido muriendo ley, derechos e instituciones. Cuando faltan los valores como el respeto, la tolerancia y la libertad, hay un regreso antropológico a la caverna. La ciclicidad de los hechos políticos acá se confirma. Además, Hegel diría: “Toda esencia conlleva en sí el germen de su propia destrucción”. Si el marxismo es hegeliano, entonces que le pongan atención a todos los dictados de su credo dogmático que han visto como sentencia fatalista. ¿Y no es que se llenan la boca pontificando sobre historia? El deslustrado socialismo del siglo XXI se descoyunta vertiginosamente en los reductos donde se atrinchera. ¿Por qué? Ellos se autodestruyen. Han dictado todo sin dar lugar a la disensión, a la crítica, a la pluralidad. No comprenden que la democracia ennoblece, dignifica, enaltece. Si no hubieran reprimido, nunca habrían llegado a este escenario insoportable. ¿Han pensado que lo único que les hubiera permitido figurar más tiempo en la palestra política habría sido respetar los valores que niegan a sus adversarios: derechos, igualdad ante la ley, libertades políticas? No lo comprenden. Prefieren el garrote y la piedra. Esos son los referentes de su educación. Son así porque creen que su ideología es un dogma que se debe imponer. El que no piensa como ellos es un enemigo. ¿Ese es el hombre nuevo que quieren como modelo para el futuro? En política los que asumen el poder total para gobernar ―sin controles― se engañan. Se llenan de estadísticas falsas; hacen manifestaciones donde los “protestantes” son empleados públicos, obligados por temor. ¿Y cómo pueden saberse confiados si solo usan coacción, intimidación y represión? El poder usado ante los gobernados pierde su fuerza moral y legitimidad, cuando quiere sojuzgar a otros. Lo sucedido en Nicaragua es trágico, degradante. ¿Quién apoya a los represores por creerse dueños absolutos del poder? ¿Es este un punto de inflexión para el minúsculo clan de países secuestrados por los socialistas? Cuando esta izquierda sigloveintiunesca reflexione acerca de sus errores cometidos, se dará cuenta que enseñar valores les tenía que pregonar odio e intolerancia. Los valores granjean respeto para sí; la represión, repulsión. El que gobierna aduciendo defender a los pobres, y vive como millonario, destroza sus propios argumentos. El que lucha contra una dictadura y luego sigue los mismos métodos y prácticas del destronado, ¿en qué se diferencia del vencido? Si en el mundo hay 196 Estados-naciones, ¿enumeren 10 aliados que tengan que les respalden incondicionalmente? ¡Sus únicos aliados son todos aquellos que en sus respectivos países también persiguen a sus ciudadanos por pensar distinto! Si el cuento es que los enemigos son de derecha. Bueno, reflexiono: la derecha no es como la pintan. Debe tener algo de fascinante: porque los refugiados que huyen buscan países de derecha; los perseguidos políticos se van a países de derecha; los que progresan viven en países de derecha; los que hablan con plenas libertades viven en países de derecha; los que producen grandes inventos viven en países de derecha. Las voces que apoyan la democracia vienen de todas partes: de las naciones vecinas, las latinoamericanas, las europeas, las naciones decentes, los organismos multilaterales, los organismos internacionales defensores de los derechos humanos, y hasta muchos de ellos, que poco a poco han ido abriendo los ojos. Ya la gran mayoría de los nicaragüenses está consciente de que las cantaletas repetidas incansablemente―son cuentos vacíos. Ahora, sin asombro, vemos los antifaces caídos en el tablado.

Estimada Comunidad hemisférica. He sido crítica por muchos años con CHDS, pues he sentido que academicamente tenemos sintonía, pero noto frialdad en comentar las realidades que vivimos en nuestros países. Marìa Teresa y Luisa Parraguez, espero motiven a un conversatorio productivo, sobre instrumentos internacionales que son recomendables para contrarestar este autoritarismo.
ARTICULO DE MI AUTORIA LLORA NICARAGUA!!! #SOSNICARAGUA Llora Nicaragua porque la sangre de tus hijos caidos a servido para recibir de parte de nuestros gobernantes una clase de historia y un ¡ups creo que podemos encontrar otra solucion al problema que hemos creado. Un pueblo se levanto ante la arbitrariedad de un contrato leonino, para que despues de muchos dias de represion, de sangre derramada, solo asi se quiera hablar de dialogo. Desde el primer caido las puertas del dialogo se cerraron, como se puede hablar de dialogo, cuando los derechos fundamentales a la protesta, a la vida se han violado por una de las partes. Como hablar de dialogo hasta que la situacion se le salio de las manos al gobierno, hasta despues de mas de 20 mu***os, mas de 100 detenidos y sabra Dios cuantos herido, despues de practicamente estar a las puertas de una insurreccion. Como se puede hablar de libertad de derecho si al momento de el pueblo querer reclamar ante una injusticia de proporciones dantesticas, lo primero que hace el gobierno es mandar a toda de fuerza de choque de la Policia Nacional mas al grupo de personas conocido como Juventud Sandinista a reprimir al pueblo desarmado que protesta no solo por la violacion de los derechos de sus familiares, amigos he ironicamente tambien por el derecho de sus mismos agresores. Basto solo observar el rostro de inconformidad, decepcion de la Primera Comisionada Aminta Granera y del General de Ejercito Cesar Aviles al momento de ver al Comandante en Jefe de las fuerzas armas Cantinflear en su primera comparecencia despues de dias de muerte, sangre y destruccion. Vayan señores dirigentes de gobierno a decirle a la madre de los caidos, saben que siempre podemos encontrar otra solucion a ver si con eso mitigan el dolor de las familias dolientes. Esto no es un llamado a la violencia sino la reflexion y a que no se borre de nuestras mentes todo lo que ha pasado para honrar la memoria de los caidos por una causa justa
LLORA NICARAGUA!!! #SOSNICARAGUA Llora Nicaragua porque la sangre de tus hijos caidos a servido para recibir de parte de nuestros gobernantes una clase de historia y un ¡ups creo que podemos encontrar otra solucion al problema que hemos creado. Un pueblo se levanto ante la arbitrariedad de un contrato leonino, para que despues de muchos dias de represion, de sangre derramada, solo asi se quiera hablar de dialogo. Desde el primer caido las puertas del dialogo se cerraron, como se puede hablar de dialogo, cuando los derechos fundamentales a la protesta, a la vida se han violado por una de las partes. Como hablar de dialogo hasta que la situacion se le salio de las manos al gobierno, hasta despues de mas de 20 mu***os, mas de 100 detenidos y sabra Dios cuantos herido, despues de practicamente estar a las puertas de una insurreccion. Como se puede hablar de libertad de derecho si al momento de el pueblo querer reclamar ante una injusticia de proporciones dantesticas, lo primero que hace el gobierno es mandar a toda de fuerza de choque de la Policia Nacional mas al grupo de personas conocido como Juventud Sandinista a reprimir al pueblo desarmado que protesta no solo por la violacion de los derechos de sus familiares, amigos he ironicamente tambien por el derecho de sus mismos agresores. Basto solo observar el rostro de inconformidad, decepcion de la Primera Comisionada Aminta Granera y del General de Ejercito Cesar Aviles al momento de ver al Comandante en Jefe de las fuerzas armas Cantinflear en su primera comparecencia despues de dias de muerte, sangre y destruccion. Vayan señores dirigentes de gobierno a decirle a la madre de los caidos, saben que siempre podemos encontrar otra solucion a ver si con eso mitigan el dolor de las familias dolientes. Esto no es un llamado a la violencia sino la reflexion y a que no se borre de nuestras mentes todo lo que ha pasado para honrar la memoria de los caidos por una causa justa
