Desestabilizar para ganar

No puede ser que la oposición haga como la CIA con los gobiernos que quiere cambiar, desestabilizarlos a través de la economía, sólo que en este caso no es contra un gobierno extranjero supuestamente hostil sino contra el propio gobierno. ¿Tiene sentido que un partido de la oposición juegue a desestabilizar la propia economía con tal de conseguir el poder? No tiene sentido pero sucede: el poder es lo primero para un partido que se precie; lo que pueda hacer con él, es secundario. Por supuesto no estoy hablando de España sino de los Estados Unidos. Vayamos a Orwell y su Mil novecientos ochenta y cuatro:

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power”.
Pues en esas estamos.
