Cesar Perez Vivas
Venezuelan society in general, and the democratic sectors opposed to the current political regime in particular, bear a resemblance to the Tower of Babel. We all talk, we think, we argue but we don’t understand each other. The perverse behavior of the red clique inoculated our social body with a high dose of toxic solvents that make it very difficult to achieve dialogue, encounter and basic coexistence, ordered by elementary rules that allow us to effectively channel the struggle for the reestablishment of the state. law in our country.
The regime has treacherously pushed us into this abyss of fractionalization in which we find ourselves. Now, aware of this situation, he announces with great fanfare that he is going to re-establish dialogue with the Venezuelan opposition, demanding that the representatives of the different groups into which he has subdivided us attend this process. They know that the days and months will pass there and no consensual solution will emerge to channel, this year, an electoral solution to the political crisis, the fundamental cause of the humanitarian tragedy that we are suffering.
The red clique takes advantage, then, of these circumstances to buy time in its illegitimate management of the powers of the state and stealthily prepares the trap with which to perpetuate itself.
Those of us who exercise leadership and management tasks in political life cannot ignore this reality, if it really moves us, above our personal or group interests and aspirations, a sincere love for this Venezuelan homeland. The tragedy of our nation does not give for more selfishness and subordinate ambitions. A superior will must be imposed to achieve a process of reunion from the citizens.
If the “leaders” cannot or do not want to understand each other because there have been political and even affective ruptures, which make dialogue and coexistence impossible, then we must appeal to the citizens so that they define what ideas and leadership they accept for the conduct of the national life, creating the foundations that guarantee the future the right of all to exercise their fundamental rights without obstacles.
In this sense, I consider it convenient to work on the design of a negotiation process, between the political sectors different from the regime, that are willing to prepare a political platform to face it at the time of the next electoral contest for national power.
This negotiation process must be produced, organized, developed by Venezuelans, carried out in our territory, without failing to consult the political actors in exile, and launched by ourselves. The aforementioned process should lead us to a great political agreement of the democratic society for the rescue of democracy and for the reconstruction of the country.
Time passes inexorably. It is a non-renewable resource and we must take advantage of it now to move in that direction. Not facing the problem, now, contributes to the strategy and tactics of the dictatorship. Going to that negotiating table with the government, without first having a great agreement in the opposition, is the same as visiting the Tower of Babel and Venezuela is not here to continue waiting for the perverse game of egos, sectarianism and subordinate ambitions.
