Minocracy is creating acute indigestion in Spain

The Spanish Socialist government's support of 'Minocracy' ignores a seismic demographic shift that could rip apart the country's social fabric

Article Tools

Minocracy is well and alive in Spain, and from the stench in the Moncloa vicinity one wonders if the country isn't also experiencing a case of acute indigestion.


The residence of Spainís prime minister is in the Moncloa neighborhood. The inhabitants claim to be Socialist yet favor "Minocracy" - or the rule of the minority - by blatantly disregarding their political base and election year promises.


For example, the government appears to be more concerned about garnering the support of fringe voters, when it is not settling decadeís old scores such as the rewriting of history. In one scheme the Socialists have dredged up past horrors of the Spanish Civil War to focus on the Republican victims, while failing to acknowledge that barbarities were committed on both sides. Such legislative stunts and others - like removing statues of the Dictator Francisco Franco at midnight - tend to lessen the Socialists' credibility: after all, if a statue needs removed, why not in plain daylight?

 

In other areas, instead of worrying about promoting families, the Spanish government has introduced fast-track divorces and embryonic testing.

 

Even with respect to terrorism, the Socialists have ignored the pleas of victims and instead expressed a willingness to negotiate with ETA, ignoring that for all purposes the Basque terrorist group is actually blackmailing the Spanish state.

 

Logic is not this government's forte.

This is also a government that is opposed to freedom of speech, and has repeatedly attempted to censor the voice of the Catholic Church by suggesting that those who practice the Christian faith should only do so in private.
