¿Quién “apoya” y se adhiere al MAS? – Who “supports” and adheres to MAS?

I’m Lucho’s godchild!!” arrogance … cynicism

Los ahijados del poder

Andrea Martínez no es la única, pero representa muy bien a los ahijados del poder. Son esa clase de militantes furibundos que, a falta de argumentos, usan el poco poder que tienen entre manos para mostrar superioridad, para aplastar al enemigo, para saltarse las normas. Cuando son descubiertos cometiendo infracciones, lejos de pedir disculpas o renunciar a sus cargos, como ocurriría en otros países del mundo, en Bolivia exhiben su poder, dicen ser ahijados del presidente, llaman al comandante de la Policía y, lo peor de todo, amenazan con juicios a los demás. No buscan enmendar sus errores;  al contrario, quieren que todo el mundo se entere que tienen una migaja de poder y que con él pueden amedrentar a las autoridades y a cuanto ciudadano de bien les haga notar sus errores.

We are not analyzing here the capacities (or lack thereof) that they have to occupy the positions they hold, that is another issue; for now we focus only on their lack of ethics, their lack of respect, their lack of empathy, their null adherence to the law.

Bolivians do not deserve godchildren, we need true public servants.

The godchildren of power

Andrea Martínez is not the only one, but she represents the godchildren of power very well. They are the kind of angry militants who, in the absence of arguments, use what little power they have at hand to show superiority, to crush the enemy, to break the rules. When they are discovered committing infractions, far from apologizing or resigning from their positions, as would happen in other countries of the world, in Bolivia they exhibit their power, claim to be godchildren of the president, call the police commander and, worst of all, threaten with prosecutions to others. They do not seek to make amends for their mistakes; on the contrary, they want everyone to know that they have a crumb of power and that with it they can intimidate the authorities and any good citizen to make them notice their mistakes.

No estamos analizando aquí las capacidades (o falta de ellas) que tienen para ocupar los cargos que ostentan, ése es otro tema;  por ahora nos enfocamos sólo en su falta de ética, en su carencia de respeto, en su déficit de empatía, en su nulo apego a la ley.

Los bolivianos no nos merecemos ahijados, necesitamos verdaderos servidores públicos.
