Letters from Readers I: Animals Taking the Oath

The story goes that, in those times of total barbarism, a so-called “emperor”, to demonstrate his great dominance over the common people, took the oath as a senator on his own horse. And no one dared to deny it. Such was the submission that he knew how to impose. Today we read that an official from Neuquén swore an oath to a dog, making it promise – it would be through barking – loyalty and fidelity to the position that was imposed on it as official bloodhound. He responded conscientiously, and was incorporated into the staff. This is not a joke. It only exposes a hurtful facet of the dark pit into which the national intellect has fallen, which no longer distinguishes a quadruped from a human being, being accepted as a pair. How long will we keep going backwards? There are only a few steps left for the abyss and there are no signs of stopping. Can we bank two new animals in the future government? Haven’t we had enough already? It will depend on us -or what’s left of us-. If not, contrary to the famous Palito song, we will start practicing: “I have no faith / that nothing will change…”
