2020.06.10 14:32 wiklrMadeleine McCann Updates: State of the Case & Suspect Christian B.
Another update thread is available on Unresolved Mysteries Thread will be updated throughout the day. Foreign news are Google translated, if you can provide a better translation please tag me. Thank you. Sabado PJ prepares to search for Maddie's body in wells next to suspect's house in Algarve
The Judiciary Police is preparing to search for Maddie's body in wells next to the house that Christian Brueckner - suspected of missing the 3-year-old girl - had rented in the Algarve. According to the weekly Sol , the PJ has been making several inquiries in order to see if there is any possibility that the girl's body was deposited there. From the house in question to the Ocean Club, where Maddie disappeared, it is only a few minutes by car. The house has several old wells and also has a path that leads directly to Praia da Luz, in the Algarve. The news comes after it was announced that Kate and Gerry McCann, the British girl's parents, would know within days how Maddie died. Brueckner's lawyers say the German will not answer any questions about the case until there is evidence that he is involved. According to the weekly, several interrogations of witnesses in the case continue to be made.
In the case of little Maddie, who disappeared 13 years ago, the investigators remain with no evidence that the girl is still alive. There is no forensic evidence for this, so there remains "a certain hope," said the spokesman for the public prosecutor's office in Braunschweig, Hans Christian Wolters, on Monday. But that is a "purely theoretical possibility". He had previously said this to the British "Mirror", as the "Bild" newspaper reported: According to that he did not want to destroy hope. In Germany, murder investigations are common in such cases. For parents Kate and Gerry McCann, the discussion means another torture, according to the British paper. But Wolters made it clear: "I cannot offer 100% forensic security." From the perspective of the investigators, however, it is clear that the girl was killed. There are so many indications that a crime is under investigation - in Germany that is murder.
Local.de German Media Probes Police Blunder in Madeleine McCann case
June 12, 2020 - Spiegel reported that the federal criminal police (BKA) had contacted police in Brunswick for more information about the suspect after receiving a confidential tip-off in October 2013. But while calling the suspect in, police in their letter specified that it had to do with the "Madeleine McCann missing persons case" and "personal examination of Christian B". The letter would have given Christian B. ample time to destroy any evidence, the report said, quoting experts who consider the police's actions to be a serious mistake. This should not have happened and in no way corresponds to the usual procedure in such a sensitive case," an experienced police officer was quoted as saying. Police would usually gather information first before approaching a suspect, the report said.
CNNGerman prosecutors: new evidence in Madeleine McCann case, but not enough
"It is actually like this — we have a specific suspect, we know the name, we have a picture, we know where he is at the moment, namely in custody in Germany, and we actually have findings that suggest that he is Madeleine McCann's murderer," he said. "At the moment, there is insufficient evidence to convict." ... Friedrich Fuelscher, a lawyer representing the suspect, told CNN Thursday that investigators had not yet approached his client. "On the advice of his defense council he is remaining silent about the accusations," Fuelscher said, adding that he was waiting to get access to the police file from state prosecutors, after which his legal team "will further evaluate." The suspect has also been moved to another cell alone for his own safety, said Oliver Breuer, a spokesman at the justice ministry in the state of Schleswig-Holstein. The suspect "is highly aware of the international press interest," he said. ... He also denied UK media reports that there was evidence suggesting McCann had been killed shortly after her abduction, even though that was most likely the case.
“People have got tired of listening to all the theories about Madeleine, and I think that it is understandable that nothing feels very new after 13 years” of various police leads turning out to be cold, said Hugo Pereira, the mayor of the municipality that includes Praia da Luz. “There’s also the feeling that anybody who could have possibly been interrogated has already said all that could be said,” he added.
Daily MailFamily of Christian Brueckner's teenage girlfriend have been quizzed by German police
Madeleline McCann suspect Christian Brueckner abused his teenage girlfriend Nakscije Miftari and put her family through hell, her sister has revealed Azra Miftari recalled how Brueckner, who had an 18-month relationship with Nakscije in 2014, was repeatedly cruel: 'He hit my sister. It was horrible for her
CB [Christian Brueckner], who is a suspect in the Madeleine McCann case, has moved into solitary confinement.
'We want to prevent him being attacked by other prisoners in Kiel Prison. He will only be allowed out of the cell accompanied by guards. He will be kept in the solitary confinement cell until further notice. The solitary confinement cells are in a separate wing of the prison."
He has not been charged over Madeleine's disappearance in 2007 and cannot be held for it.
Prosecutors admitted they didn't have enough evidence to question him. German lawyers are now desperately trying to find grounds to charge him with the Maddie case to avoid a situation in which he could be freed again.
According to the Flensburg public prosecutor, it was never involved in the case of the British girl Maddie McCann, who disappeared in Portugal in 2007. This was emphasized by the Chief Prosecutor Ulrike Stahlmann-Liebelt and Schleswig-Holstein's Minister of Justice Claus Christian Claussen (CDU) on Wednesday in Kiel's interior and legal committee. ... "We have nothing to do with the Maddie investigation," said the lawyer.
This was reported to the responsible investigative authority, the lawyers Jan-Christian Hochmann and David Volke informed the German Press Agency. ... [Christian B is] now represented by Kiel lawyer Friedrich Fülscher and Hamburg lawyer Johann Schwenn. Fülscher told RTL / n-tv that his client would like to provide "currently no information on the matter". "We ask for your understanding that we, as defenders, do not provide any information either." Schwenn confirmed the dpa the joint mandate with colleague Fülscher. "We'll keep looking after the files," he said.
(June 10, 2020) - When asked how his client was doing, Fülscher replied: "How should a person who is isolated in a correctional facility and who accuses half the world's population of the worst crimes? ", The lawyer announced, "under civil or criminal law" against false suspicions want to proceed with his client.
PORTUGUESE NEWS ExpressoMP makes survey of cases involving suspect in disappearance
(10.06.2020 at 14h07) ... The Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Faro announced today that it is carrying out a survey of the processes that relate the German citizen suspected of disappearing Madeleine McCann, with other cases registered in the region. "With a view to clarifying the matter, the Public Prosecutor's Office (MP) has been carrying out a survey" of processes that took place in the Faro district, and that relate the German citizen suspected of intervention in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, writes the Attorney on its website. The MP clarifies that according to "the elements available so far", it was found that the now suspect was convicted of disobedience and theft in another process. In addition to these two cases, five requests for international judicial cooperation were also found in which the name of that German citizen is mentioned. According to the MP, one of the requests for international cooperation is related to a lawsuit against strangers and that was closed in February 2006, "and four concern the process in which the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is being investigated". The so-called 'Maddie' process was initially closed in 2008, with the MP determined in 2013 to reopen it, as new elements appeared that justified the continuation of the investigation, the Prosecutor's Office said. "After the reopening of the process, no defendants were constituted, continuing the investigations with the carrying out of diligences that are useful for the investigation of the facts and the identification and accountability of the respective authors", advances the MP. ... According to the Faro District Attorney's Office, the investigation has been carried out in close cooperation with the German and English judicial authorities, under the terms defined in the European Convention on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters and in Directive 2014/41 / EU of the Parliament and the European Council.
------------------------------------------------------------------- GERMAN NEWS SueddeutscheParliament discusses judicial behavior against suspects
(June 10, 2020) - Schleswig-Holstein's Minister of Justice Claus Christian Claussen (CDU) and representatives of the Flensburg public prosecutor's office will answer questions to the Interior and Legal Committee in Kiel (2 p.m.). The question is whether the man was temporarily released for about four weeks in 2018 due to a legal mishap by the Flensburg public prosecutor. It is said that the deadline was missed so that the man was released from custody at the time for child abuse. Back then, it wasn't about Maddie, it was about another case. ... The prison sentence in Kiel for the drug offense is 21 months. The convict served 14 months, two thirds. A probation for parole is underway. A corresponding application has recently been received by the district court in Kiel, said a spokesman for the district court. Comments from the Flensburg Public Prosecutor and the Kiel Correctional Facility had been requested. There are no specific deadlines for when they should be there. The spokeswoman for the public prosecutor's office in Flensburg said that the files from Braunschweig were retrieved on Monday, where the convict had first applied for parole. Braunschweig, however, rightly declared that it was not responsible. But the suspect in the Maddie case would probably not be released. Because against the man there is a Braunschweig judgment of seven years in the first instance. In this case it is about rape of a 72-year-old. The verdict is not yet legally binding.

Die WeltBKA is processing hundreds of references in the Maddie case

The competent court has not yet ruled, »said Wolters. The British police had announced on Sunday that about 400 new reports had been received in the Maddie case by phone or email. Unlike the German investigators, Scotland Yard continues to assume that there is a missing person after 13 years. "There is no definitive evidence that Madeleine is still alive or dead," said a police spokesman in London.
------------------------------------------------------------------- AP Interview with Hans Christian Wolters English Transcript:
"The accused lived in Portugal between 1995 and 2007, near Praia da Luz and Lagos. During this time he had several occasional jobs, including in the catering industry. We also have evidence that he made his living by committing burglary thefts in hotel complexes and holiday apartments and also by drug trafficking. We hope to find British tourists who have made sightings during this period, who may also recognise photographs of the accused's vehicles and the accused's homes. These photos can be found on the website of the German Federal Criminal Police Office. There the information is also available in English. Anyone who can say anything about this topic, who recognizes the vehicles that are pictured there, who recognizes the houses, who might also know the personal data of this person, is asked to help us. Perhaps this person has seen something in his or her holiday resort in Portugal that can help us considerably." "We do not have the decisive evidence yet. We do not have the body of Madeleine McCann. But we assume she is dead. But at the moment we cannot substantiate our suspicions in such a way that we could, for example, also apply for an arrest warrant against him here in Germany for the murder of Madeleine McCann. And we also have too little evidence at the moment to be able to file an indictment in court." "Because according to our indications the girl is dead. We have no evidence that the girl could still be alive. All the evidence that we have, but which I cannot give you, indicates that the girl is indeed dead."
Sky News VideoGerman authorities say they have 'some evidence' that Madeleine McCann is dead Transcript:
Interviewer: For Madeleine McCann's parents there's still hope she's still alive. The prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters says he's leading a murder investigation. Madeleine's parents still believe she's still alive, why do you call it a murder investigation? Wolters: There's so many facts that she's dead. There's no opportunity that she's still living. Interviewer: The case against Christian B is circumstantial. He's a convicted child sex abuser. He lived along Portugal's Algarve cooast for 12 years. His last home was Praia de Luz where Madeleine vanished. His phone was used outside McCann appartment the night she disappeared. Wolters: The amnesty lie here from Madeleine McCann begin about an austere orders. [Translated] We don't have Madeleine McCann's body but we expect that she's dead. We have some evidence that the suspect has done the deed but we need more information from the people, places he has lived so we can target this place especially and search there for Madeleine. Interviewer: Forensic examination of the suspect's camper van is thought to have found no trace of Madeleine's DNA and none in his Jaguar car which was also seized. Wolters: [Translated] We hope that some British tourist can help us to find the murder of Madeleine McCann. Sky News: Like their Scotland yard colleagues, German prosecutors have received hundreds of calls after last week's appeals for help. Wolters: [Translated] We think the suspect has committed more crimes possibly against British people and Irish and Americans. We think there are more victims of sexual crimes. Interviewer: The suspect is in Jail in Germany. He too is awaiting developments in the case. Detectives haven't yet questioned him about Madeleine.
The Guardian Some evidence' Madeleine McCann is dead, say German authorities
(June 9, 2020 ) - Wolters told Sky News: “The hard evidence we don’t have, we don’t have the crucial evidence of Madeleine McCann’s body. We expect that she is dead, but we don’t have enough evidence that we can get a warrant for our suspect in Germany for the murder of Madeleine McCann. At the moment, we also don’t have enough proof for a trial at court, but we have some evidence that the suspect has done the deed. That’s why we need more information from people, especially places he has lived, so we can target these places especially and search there for Madeleine.

(June 9, 2020 ) - Hans Christian Wolters, a prosecutor in the northern city of Braunschweig - where detectives are leading the investigation - told the BBC: "We have evidence against the accused which leads us to believe that he really killed Madeleine but this evidence is not strong enough at the moment to take him to court." The evidence is "strong enough to say that the girl is dead and strong enough to accuse a specific individual of murder - that strong," he said. However he added: "One has to be honest and remain open to the possibility that our investigation could end without a charge, that it ends like the others have. "We are optimistic it will be different for us but for that we need more information."

Como medir el pene
Te has preguntado alguna vez si existe un método acerca de como medir el pene? La dimensión del miembro sexual masculino ha sido siempre un motivo de preocupación entre los hombres alrededor del mundo. Aprende como medir el pene ya mismo y quítate las dudas! hoy en dia se cree cree que mayor tamaño de pene equivale a mayor placer sexual. Sin embargo, la longitud y el grosor del pene no han sido apreciados de la misma manera en la historia de la humanidad. En la antigua Grecia, se apreciaba más a hombres con penes pequeños debido a que se creía que poseían mayor capacidad intelectual, creativa y artística. Por el contrario, a los brutos, torpes o inferiores física y mentalmentte se les representaba con enormes falos desproporcionados anatómicamente. En los tiempos modernos, se instauró el pensamiento global que la satisfacción sexual tiene una relación directamente proporcional con el tamaño de los órganos sexuales. Se utiliza el término “órganos sexuales” ya que no solo importa el tamaño del pene del hombre, sino también los pechos, los glúteos y vulva en las mujeres.
Mientras más grande, mejor. ¿Cuán cierto es esto?
La mayoría de los estudios clínicos realizados no han encontrado una relación directa entre las dimensiones del miembro masculino y el orgasmo o placer sexual en ambos miembros de la pareja. De hecho, algunos reportes confirman que muchas mujeres encuentran dolorosas las relaciones sexuales con hombres con penes muy grandes. Sin embargo esto no modifica las creencias de que lo ideal es tener un gran pene, pero ¿realmente se sabe si un pene tiene el tamaño adecuado? ¿Cómo podemos medir las verdaderas dimensiones del falo? El surgimiento del internet y las redes sociales nos han proporcionado a la comunidad en general una fuente ilimitada de información acerca de cualquier tópico, sobre todo en temas sexuales. Lamentablemente, el soporte científico en la gran mayoría de estas publicaciones es nulo. Son muy pocos los blogs, artículos o vídeos que obtienen sus datos de investigaciones sensatas, provenientes de boletines indexados o de libros serios. Esa realidad es la que vamos a cambiar en tamañodelpene.com Al finaldel artículo podrán leer referencias concretas, obtenidas a través de pruebas clínicas formales y extraídas de las más reconocidas revistas de sexualidad a nivel mundial.
¿Cómo medir el pene?
Esta una pregunta que raya en lo polémico cuenta con absoluta seriedad. Desde el punto de vista urológico, el tamaño del pene es un elemento clínico fundamental en la evaluación total de un paciente, tanto pediátrico como adulto. Existen técnicas descritas para medir el pene desde los primeros días de vida hasta la adultez. Si bien medir el tamaño del pene no genera demasiado interés para el adulto, el procedimiento de medir el pene en bebes y niños aporta mucha información acerca de la salud de los mismos y permite hacer diagnósticos precoces de cualquier anormalidad.
Toma de medida del amaño del pene dentro del útero materno
De hecho, Perlitz Yuri y colaboradores (Prenatal Diagnosis, 2011) realizaron un estudio en el cual medían el tamaño del pene dentro del útero materno. Dicha medición se llevaba a cabo a través de una ecografía materna transvaginal realizada entre las semanas 14 y 35 de la gestación, utilizando como referencias el borde proximal de los cuerpos cavernosos y la punta del glande. El estudio concluyó que estas medidas pueden ayudar en el diagnóstico precoz de malformaciones genitales, incluyendo el micropene (link a articulo interno: que es un micropene?) o escaso desarrollo dimensional, pudiendo así establecerse el tratamiento hormonal temprano y evitar futuras complicaciones.

Medida del tamaño del pene en individuos ya nacidos
Ahora bien, cuando se desea medir el tamaño del pene en individuos ya nacidos, se describen algunas técnicas para ello. Tomova Analia y colaboradores (Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2010) publicaron un enorme estudio llevado a cabo en más de 6000 niños y adolescentes de Bulgaria. En el estudio describen el desarrollo de los genitales externos en dichos grupos de la misma edad. Para ello, además de medir los parámetros antropométricos clásicos como la talla y el peso, se midió el tamaño del pene y el volumen testicular. La longitud del pene fue medida en estado de flacidez utilizando una cinta métrica rígida desde la unión de la piel entre el pene y el pubis hasta la punta del glande, excluyendo el tejido redundante del prepucio. Es importante destacar que esta medida se realiza ejerciendo la máxima extensión no dolorosa posible del órgano sexual. La circunferencia del pene se midió en la base del mismo con una cinta métrica flexible. El volumen de los testículos se calculó a través de un orquidómetro de Parder. (2) Esta técnica de medida parece ser la más aceptada en el mundo científico. Gabrich Pedro y colaboradores ya lo habían descrito en su estudio sobre niños y adolescentes de Brasil (Jornal de Pediatria, 2007), en el cual utilizaron una regla rígida graduada en milímetros para medir la longitud del pene y un paquímetro para el diámetro. Al igual que en el estudio de Tomova, la longitud del pene se midió en estado de flacidez con la máxima tracción posible sin causar dolor. En cambio, la circunferencia se midió en la mitad del pene y no en la base. (3) También se describen en este estudio varias mediciones de la longitud, las cuales son de suma importancia en los resultados finales, especialmente cuando se extrapolan al adulto. Son cuatro las medidas que se analizaron, a saber: Longitud flácida aparente (LFA o AFL): desde la unión de la piel del pene con la del pubis hasta la punta del pene. Longitud flácida real (LFR o RFL): desde la unión de la piel del pene con la del pubis, deprimiendo la grasa local, hasta el extremo final del glande. Longitud flácida aparente con máxima extensión (LFA max o AFL max): Desde la unión de la piel del pene con la del pubis hasta la punta del pene, ejerciendo la mayor extensión posible del mismo sin causar dolor. Longitud flácida real con máxima extensión (LFR max o RFL max): Desde la unión de la piel del pene con la del pubis, deprimiendo la grasa local, hasta el extremo distal del glande, ejerciendo la mayor extensión posible del órgano sexual sin causar dolor. Hasta el momento hemos descrito las técnicas de medición de las dimensiones del pene en estado de flacidez. Esta medida es muy importante porque sirve como un buen predictor para determinar el tamaño final en estado de erección. De hecho, Veale David y colaboradores (BJU Int, 2015) publicaron un ensayo en el cual desarrollan nomogramas amplios relacionando la longitud y la circunferencia del pene, tanto en flacidez como en erección, después de analizar a más de 15000 hombres británicos. Las conclusiones de dicho estudio reportan que existe una correlación consistente, aunque débil, entre la longitud del pene flácido estirado y la longitud del pene en plena erección. (4) Ya algunos años atrás, Chen J. y su equipo (International Journal of Impotence Research, 2000) fijaron la relación entre el tamaño del pene en flacidez y en erección, estableciendo pautas sobre como medir el pene según el siguiente esquema. Se acostó al paciente en una camilla ubicada en un cuarto privado. Una vez alcanzada la máxima erección se utilizó una regla calibrada para medir la longitud y un cáliper para medir la circunferencia. La longitud se midió dorsalmente (por donde transcurre la vena central del pene) apoyando la regla en el hueso del pubis, alcanzando el punto del meato uretral. Como en todos los casos anteriores, se aplicó una extensión gentil del pene tomándolo por el glande hasta que el paciente refería cierta molestia. (5) Uno de los estudios más recientes e interesantes acerca de las técnicas sobre como medir el pene lo llevo a cabo Davoudzadeh y colaboradores (Sexual Medicine Reviews, 2018), quienes no solo revisaron mucha de la literatura disponible al respecto, sino que realizaron sus propias mediciones. El método de medición fue muy parecido al realizado en los ensayos previos, la diferencia más importante radica en que las medidas de longitud y circunferencia se llevaron a cabo con una cinta flexible en vez de una regla rígida calibrada. (6) Podemos ver que existe una cantidad interesante de trabajos de investigación en los que se realizan mediciones del pene. Ahora bien, ¿es posible realizar una adecuada medición del pene en casa? Son pocos los hombres que están dispuestos a visitar al urólogo o cualquier otro médico para que le tomen las medidas a su miembro viril. Es por ello que muchos hombre desean aprender cómo medir el tamaño del pene en la comodidad de sus hogares.
¿Qué dice la ciencia al respecto?
Herbenick D. y su equipo de trabajo (J Sex Med, 2014) publicaron un estudio de 1661 hombres americanos sexualmente activos quienes se midieron personalmente sus penes en plena erección, sin haber recibido entrenamiento previo para ello. La idea inicial del ensayo era determinar la talla adecuada de preservativos que estos hombres necesitarían, aunque la data se aprovechó para evaluar las diferentes técnicas de medición del pene. Los investigadores concluyeron en que las dimensiones reportadas eran consistentes con otras realizadas en ambientes controlados por personal calificado. El más interesante de los resultados fue que la manera de alcanzar la erección en casa no es igual a la utilizada en un laboratorio y es probable que esto afecte las dimensiones finales del pene. Es lógico si pensamos que la excitación lograda en casa, utilizando cualquier método al alcance y sin presiones externas, debe ser más eficiente para lograr una erección enérgica que la obtenida en un sitio de experimentación sabiéndose observado y controlado. (7) Otro interesante estudio realizado en la comunidad homosexual y bisexual de los Estados Unidos se basó en mediciones realizadas por los propios participantes. Grov Christian y colaboradores (Archives of Sexual Behavior, 2012) determinaron que las medidas fueron demasiado variables tanto en longitud como en circunferencia, aunque muchos confesaron no haber alcanzado erecciones potentes debido a la falta de excitación. La mayor parte de los hombres que formaron parte del estudio y consiguieron medidas adecuadas lo hicieron en medio de un momento de excitación intensa e incluso durante la relación sexual. (8)
Recomendaciones: como medir el pene
Analizando los datos provistos por los distintos trabajos de investigación, podemos aportar las siguientes recomendaciones para el hombre que desee saber cuánto mide su pene:
El ambiente donde se realice la medida es importante. Se sugiere que sea un lugar en donde se sienta cómodo. Suele hacerse en la cama o en el baño.
Los medios de excitación también son fundamentales. En los estudios de experimentación se utilizan revistas o películas eróticas, por lo cual no es descabellado hacerlo igual en casa. Algunos expertos en el tema recomiendan contar con la ayuda de la pareja para de esa manera lograr una erección efectiva que aporte medidas coherentes.
La mejor medida longitudinal del pene se obtiene con una regla rígida calibrada. La misma sirve tanto para la medición dorsal como para la ventral, y las mismas se promedian para obtener un valor real.
En las personas con sobrepeso o con abundante grasa en la región púbica, la regla debe presionarse sobre el hueso del pubis para evitar medidas erradas por debajo del valor real. Los obesos no tienen el pene más pequeño sino más oculto.
La circunferencia del pene debe medirse con una cinta métrica flexible y suave. Durante la erección debe medirse la base, el medio y la corona del pene, promediando las tres medidas para obtener un valor definitivo.
Si las medidas obtenidas no son satisfactorias, debes acudir a un médico especialista antes de tomar cualquier otra decisión. Las estrategias empíricas sobre como medir el pene y aumentar el tamaño del pene no siempre son exitosas y pueden resultar peligrosas.
Pese al bombardeo mediático referente a como medir el pene y su tamaño, el 90% de los hombres tiene un falo de tamaño normal. Si tienes dificultades para alcanzar erecciones efectivas o realmente tienes un pene cuyas dimensiones están por debajo de la media, conversa con tu pareja y acude al médico. Puedes a su vez probar determinados geles que ayudan lalubricación del pene, haciendo más placentera el acto sexual o la masturbación. Referencias Perlitz Y y colaboradores (2011).

2018.10.08 22:02 Ainsoph777The CIA and the Vatican’s Intelligence Apparatus, By Martin A. Lee July/August 1983 Issue Mother Jones
source : http://churchandstate.org.uk/2013/04/cia-and-the-vaticans-intelligence-apparatus/ The article goes into the comment section a bit, there wasn't enough space to fit it all in the text slot for a reddit post : "One day in July 1944, as the Second World War raged throughout Europe, General William “Wild Bill” Donovan was ushered into an ornate chamber in Vatican City for an audience with Pope Pius XII. Donovan bowed his head reverently as the pontiff intoned a ceremonial prayer in Latin and decorated him with the Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Sylvester, the oldest and most prestigious of papal knighthoods. This award has been given to only 100 other men in history, who “by feat of arms, or writings, or outstanding deeds, have spread the Faith, and have safeguarded and championed the Church.” Although a papal citation of this sort rarely, if ever, states why a person is inducted into the “Golden Militia,” there can be no doubt that Donovan earned his knighthood by virtue of the services he rendered to the Catholic hierarchy in World War II, during which he served as chief of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the wartime predecessor to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). In 1941, the year before the OSS was officially constituted, Donovan forged a close alliance with Father Felix Morlion, founder of a European Catholic intelligence service known as Pro Deo. When the Germans overran western Europe, Donovan helped Morlion move his base of operations from Lisbon to New York. From then on, Pro Deo was financed by Donovan, who believed that such an expenditure would result in valuable insight into the secret affairs of the Vatican, then a neutral enclave in the midst of fascist Rome. When the Allies liberated Rome in 1944, Morlion re-established his spy network in the Vatican; from there he helped the OSS obtain confidential reports provided by apostolic delegates in the Far East, which included information about strategic bombing targets in Japan. Pope Pius’ decoration of Wild Bill Donovan marked the beginning of a long-standing, intimate relationship between the Vatican and U.S. intelligence that continues to the present day. For centuries the Vatican has been a prime target of foreign espionage. One of the world’s greatest repositories of raw intelligence, it is a spy’s gold mine. Ecclesiastical, political and economic information filters in every day from thousands of priests, bishops and papal nuncios, who report regularly from every corner of the globe to the Office of the Papal Secretariat. So rich was this source of data that shortly after the war, the CIA created a special unit in its counterintelligence section to tap it and monitor developments within the Holy See. But the CIA’s interest in the Catholic church is not limited to intelligence gathering. The Vatican, with its immense wealth and political influence, has in recent years become a key force in global politics, particularly with Catholicism playing such a pivotal role in Eastern Europe and Latin America. Unbeknownst to most Catholics, the Vatican, which carefully maintains an apolitical image, not only has a foreign office and a diplomatic corps, but also has a foreign policy. And with Polish Communists embracing Catholicism and Latin American Catholics embracing communism, the U.S. government and particularly the CIA have recently taken a much greater interest in Vatican foreign policy. A year-long Mother Jones investigation has revealed a number of unlikely channels — both overt and covert — which the agency uses to bring its influence to bear upon that policy. Since World War II, the CIA has:
subsidized a Catholic lay organization that served as the political slugging arm of the pope and the Vatican throughout the Cold War;
penetrated the American section of one of the wealthiest and most powerful Vatican orders;
passed money to a large number of priests and bishops — some of whom became witting agents in CIA covert operations;
employed undercover operatives to lobby members of the Curia (the Vatican government) and spy on liberal churchmen on the pope’s staff who challenged the political assumptions of the United States;
prepared intelligence briefings that accurately predicted the rise of liberation theology; and
collaborated with right-wing Catholic groups to counter the actions of progressive clerics in Latin America.
It was in this last regard that the CIA supported factions within the Catholic church that were instrumental in promoting and electing the current pope, John Paul II, whose Polish nationalism and anti-Communist credentials, they thought, would make him a perfect vehicle for U.S. foreign policy. John Paul’s recent trip to Nicaragua could not have been matched by any American’s for the contribution it made to President Reagan’s Central American initiative. And hopes are high in Washington, D.C., that the pope’s forth-coming trip to Poland, where 90 percent of the people are Catholic, will respark the anti-Soviet uprising so vital to Reagan’s plans for Eastern Europe. Dark Knight of the Soul Every year in late June a bizarre ritual takes place in Rome. Men and women fly in from all over the world to participate in a ceremony that has been performed for centuries. Next year, the assembled might find CIA director William Casey in their midst. And Casey could well be accompanied by former Secretary of State Alexander Haig. If they make the journey, Casey and Haig will join a gathering of the world’s Catholic elite on St. John’s Day. Dressed in scarlet uniforms and black capes, brandishing swords and waving flags emblazoned with the eight-pointed Maltese cross, these Catholic brothers and sisters will, in an atmosphere of pomp and circumstance befitting a coronation, swear allegiance to the defense of the Holy Mother Church. Casey and Haig are both members of the Knights of Malta, a legendary Vatican order dating back to the Crusades, when the “warrior monks” served as the military arm of the Catholic church. The knights, in their latter-day incarnation as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM), are a historical anomaly. Although the order has no land mass other than a small headquarters in Rome, this unique papal entity holds the status of nation-state. It mints coins, prints stamps, has its own constitution and issues license plates and passports to an accredited diplomatic corps. The grand master of the order, Fra Angelo de Mojana di Cologna, holds a rank in the church equal to a cardinal and is recognized as a sovereign chief of state by 41 nations with which the SMOM exchanges ambassadors. But the real power of the order lies with the lay members, who are active on five continents. Nobility forms the backbone of the SMOM; more than 40 percent of its 10,000 constituents are related to Europe’s oldest and most powerful Catholic families. Wealth is a de facto prerequisite for a knightly candidate, and each must pass through a rigorous screening. Protestants, Jews, Muslims and divorced or separated Catholics are ineligible. “The eight-pointed white cross stands out everywhere as a symbol of charity toward mankind and as a comfort and consolation to the sick and the poor,” says Cyril Toumanoff, official historian of the SMOM. In recent years its members have carried on the Hospitaler tradition of the original knights by supporting international health care and relief efforts. They proudly offer aid to the needy regardless of race, creed or religious affiliation. But the needy aided by certain SMOM members in the late ’40s were some of the 50,000 Nazi war criminals who, with the assistance of the International Red Cross, were furnished fake Vatican passports and, in some cases, clerical robes, and were smuggled on Bishop Alois Hudal’s “underground railroad” to South America. Among those was Klaus Barbie, the “butcher of Lyons.” In 1948, the SMOM gave one of its highest awards of honor, the Gran Croci al Merito con Placca, to General Reinhard Gehlen, Adolf Hitler’s chief anti-Soviet spy. (Only three other people received this award.) Gehlen, who was not a Catholic, was touted as a formidable ally in the holy crusade against godless Marxism. After the war he and his well-developed spy apparatus — staffed largely by ex-Nazis — joined the fledgling CIA. Eventually, hundreds more Nazis ended up on the U.S. government’s payroll. Among them was Klaus Barbie. “The CIA very early on made a decision that Nazis were more valuable as allies and agents than as war criminals,” says Victor Marchetti, an ex-CIA officer who was raised a Catholic. Marchetti is disturbed by the role of the CIA and his church in perpetuating the Nazi outrage. “It gets a little crazy,” he said, “when you let one thing [anticommunism] take over to the extent that you forgive everything else.” The SMOM had given a different prestigious award in 1946 to another high-level CIA operative, James Jesus Angleton. “It had to do with counterintelligence,” Angleton told Mother Jones, when asked why he was chosen for such a distinction. During World War II, Angleton was head of the Rome station of the OSS. Later, on his return to Washington, he ran what was tantamount to the “Vatican desk” for the CIA. According to Angleton, the agency does not have a Vatican desk. Nor does it have an Israel desk, for that matter, yet Angleton also covered that area. The extreme sensitivity associated with Israel and the Vatican required that work relating to them be buried among Angleton’s counterintelligence staff, which was well-suited for such assignments. During the early years of the Cold War, Angleton organized an elaborate spy network that enabled the CIA to obtain intelligence reports sent to the Vatican by papal nuncios stationed behind the Iron Curtain and in other “denied” areas. This was, at the time, one of the few means available to the CIA of penetrating the Eastern Bloc. According to previously classified State Department memoranda, Angleton recommended that the CIA fund Catholic Action, an Italian lay organization headed by Luigi Gedda, a prominent right-wing ideologue who had also been honored by the knights. Gedda was a key operative in an effort undertaken by the CIA and the Vatican to “barricade the Reds” in the 1948 Italian elections. Only weeks before the election, it appeared the Italian Communist party would prevail. The CIA and the Vatican both feared the Communists might win unless drastic measures were taken. At the behest of Pope Pius XII, Gedda mobilized a huge propaganda machine. More than 18,000 “civic committees” were formed to get out the anti-Communist vote. The Christian Democrats scored a decisive victory. Catholic Action is credited with turning the tables. Catholic Action continued to be a dominant factor in Italian politics throughout the Cold War. It had great influence on trade unions and youth groups in Italy-groups that were heavily subsidized by the CIA, then under the leadership of Alien Dulles. Christian Democratic politicians and church figures were also among the beneficiaries of the CIA’s largess, which exceeded $20 million per year in the 1950s. The agency provided “project money” to numerous priests and bishops, usually in the form of contributions to their favorite charities. Often, these prelates were unaware of the true source of these funds. “We would consider people of this sort as our allies,” recalls Victor Marchetti, “even though they may not consider themselves in any way allied with us.” Amazing Grace The American section of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta has about 1,000 members — including 300 “dames.” They represent the vanguard of American Catholicism, the point at which the Vatican and the U.S. ruling elite intersect. “The Knights of Malta comprise what is perhaps the most exclusive club on earth,” Stephen Birmingharn, the social historian, has written. “They are more than the Catholic aristocracy…[they] can pick up a telephone and chat with the pope.” And who are the American Knights? Mother Jones managed to obtain part of the secret membership list. On it we found some familiar names: Lee lacocca of Chrysler; Spyros Skouras, the shipping magnate; Robert Abplanalp, the aerosol tycoon and Nixon confidant; Barren Hilton of the hotel chain; John Volpe, former U.S. ambassador to Italy; and William Simon, who served as both treasury secretary and energy czar in the 1970s. At least one former envoy to the Vatican, Robert Wagner (the ex-mayor of New York), and the current emissary to the Vatican, William Wilson, are also members of the Knights of Malta. But there is one institution that stands out as the center of the SMOM in the United States — W.R. Grace & Company. J. Peter Grace, the company chairman, is also president of the American section of SMOM. No less than eight knights, including the chancellor of the order, John D.J. Moore (who was ambassador to Ireland under Nixon and Ford), are directors of W.R. Grace. J. Peter Grace has a long history of involvement with CIA-linked enterprises, such as Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe, which was the brainchild of General Rein-hard Gehlen. He is also the board chairman of the American Institute for Free Labor Development (AIFLD), which has collaborated with multinational corporations and their client dictatorships in Latin America to squelch independent trade unions. Up to $100 million a year of CIA funds were pumped into “trustworthy” labor organizations such as AIFLD, whose graduates, according to AIFLD executive director William Doherty, were active in covert operations that led to the military coup in Brazil in 1964. During the early 1970s, Francis D. Flanagan, the Grace representative in Washington, D. C., was a member of ITT’s “Ad Hoc Committee on Chile,” which was instrumental in planning the overthrow of Salvador Allende. AIFLD’s National Workers’ Con-federation subsequently served as the chief labor mouthpiece for the Pinochet junta. There are many other knights with CIA connections. Clare Boothe Luce, for example, the grande dame of American diplomacy, served as a U.S. ambassador to Italy in the 1950s and is now a member of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, which oversees covert operations. William Buckley, Jr., a former CIA operative and the editor of the National Review, is a member, as is his brother James, a former senator from New York and now undersecretary of state for security assistance. Targeting the Pope The American section of the SMOM is one of the main channels of communication between the CIA and the Vatican. Of course, neither party will acknowledge this. “The Knights of Malta is an honorific society of Catholics. That’s all it is. … It has no political function,” asserts former CIA director William Colby, who declined an invitation to join the illustrious order. (“I’m a little lower key,” he confessed.) Technically speaking, Colby is correct; the knights do not have an explicit political function. They would never approach the Vatican with a message from the CIA. Nor would the Vatican ever openly ally itself with the political aims of the CIA. “Obviously, this is a dynamite type of proposition,” explains Victor Marchetti. “I’m sure that in the clandestine area there was real consideration of how to influence the Vatican, but you’ll never find a paper trail within the agency establishing an operational objective. A covert action of this sort is a very complex and sophisticated sort of thing…How much pressure the CIA would dare to exert on the Vatican is debatable. It would have to be done indirectly, on an informal basis.” This is where the American section of the SMOM fits in. “They all belong to the same club,” says Marchetti. “One happens to be the director of the CIA, and another is a cardinal. When they get together and fraternize on a social basis, they exchange ideas and opinions as private individuals. But how do you separate the private individual from the professional?” During the 1950s and the early 1960s, relations between the U.S. and the Vatican were conducted largely through Francis Cardinal Spellman, the “Grand Protector and Spiritual Advisor” to the SMOM’s American wing. An ultra-conservative ideologue, Spellman served as the right arm of Pope Pius XII and was a vocal supporter of U. S. military involvement in Vietnam. But relations have not always been smooth, because Vatican policy has not always pleased American knights. In the early 1960s, Pope John XXIII took major steps to liberalize the church and to open a dialogue with the East. By doing so, he shifted papal policy from the strict anti-Communist line of his predecessor, Pius XII. John XXIII felt that the Vatican had to adopt a more flexible posture — both socially and politically — if the church was to endure as a relevant institution. His attempts at rapprochement with the Soviet Union caught everybody by surprise and sent Vatican watchers at the CIA into a frenzy. But the agency had to step up its intelligence activity in the Vatican most cautiously, as the Kennedy ad-ministration was bending over backward to avoid any overt association with the Holy See. Kennedy, America’s only Catholic president, was so consumed by the possibility of a Protestant backlash that he rebuffed the pope’s efforts to mediate a thaw in East-West relations. Meanwhile Khrushchev, the supposed atheist, welcomed the pontiffs diplomatic overtures. In May 1963, John McCone, a member of the SMOM and then director of the CIA, received a memorandum from James Spain, of the agency’s Office of National Estimates, on the ramifications of Pope John’s policies. There is “no doubt,” wrote Spain in the recently declassified 15-page memo, entitled “Change in the Church,” “that vigorous new currents are flowing in virtually every phase of the church’s thinking and activities. . . . [this has] resulted in a new approach toward Italian politics which is permissive rather than positive.” When Spain visited the Vatican, posing as a scholar on a foreign service grant, he voiced his concerns about major gains made by the Italian Left in the 1963 election. Many felt the Left’s success was attributable to Pope John’s conciliatory attitude toward the Communists. This was the first election in which the Christian Democrats were not officially endorsed by the Italian Bishops’ Conference. The pope had insisted upon maintaining a neutral stance so as not to jeopardize his Soviet initiative. Speaking with officials of the Curia, Spain discovered a great deal of discontent regarding the direction in which the church was moving. Some even suggested to him that the pope was “politically naive and unduly influenced by a handful of ‘liberal’ clerics.” He heard tales about “the moral and political unreliability of [the pope’s] young collaborators.” Among those who were particularly concerned by Pope John’s policies, according to Spain’s report to McCone, were members of the Roman aristocracy and the papal nobility, who, according to Spain, had lost many of their traditional privileges when Pius XII died. A Holy Mole John McCone now took a personal as well as professional interest in the Vatican situation. Thomas Kalamasinas, the station chief in Rome, was instructed to raise the priority of the Vatican spying operation. But the CIA ran into a snag when it learned that some of its best contacts — for example, the conservative prelates who held key posts in the Extraordinary Affairs Section of the Papal Secretariat, which was responsible for the implementation of Vatican foreign policy — were shut out by John XXIII’s tendency to circumvent his own bureaucracy when dealing with the Russians. The pope evidently feared that his diplomatic efforts might be sabotaged by some Machiavellian monsignor. Thus, he pursued his goal outside the normal channels of the Curia. A small group of trusted collaborators served as couriers for the pope, who rarely used the telephone to speak with anyone outside the Vatican for fear that the line might be tapped. When John XXIII died in 1963, CIA analysts prepared a detailed report predicting that Giovanni Cardinal Montini of Milan would be the next pope. They were right. But more amazing than the prediction is the fact that the agency was later able to confirm the identity of John’s successor in advance of the official announcement. How was the CIA privy to such information, given the excessive secrecy surrounding the College of Cardinals during a papal election? Italian intelligence sources maintained that the CIA bugged the conclave. Time magazine correspondent Roland Flamini speculates in his book Pope, Premier, President that the agency may have developed an informant among the cardinals, who communicated with the CIA through a hidden electronic transmitter. Giovanni Montini was no stranger to American intelligence. During World War II, he worked in the Office of the Papal Secretariat and passed information to a grateful OSS. Later he had a falling out with Pope Pius XII and was “exiled” to Milan. This news was well-received by Vatican watchers within the CIA, who had pegged Montini as a “liberal”. Nevertheless, he remained an important figure in the church, with extensive religious and political contacts. Every CIA station chief in Italy made a point of getting to know him, and CIA “project money” was donated to various orphanages and charities whose principal benefactor was the archbishop of Milan. When Montini became pope, taking the name Paul VI, he continued to pursue an open-door policy with the Soviet Union. Leaders from Eastern Europe were received on state visits (Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko had seven meetings with Pope Paul), and many Vatican officials traveled to Moscow for talks. Toward the end of his papacy, Paul VI let it be known that he was not averse to a center-left coalition of the Italian Communist party and the Christian Democrats. This infuriated hard-line elements within the CIA. In 1976, the Georgetown University Center for Strategic and International Studies, a conservative think tank, sponsored a conference on the Communist threat in Italy. Panelists included former CIA director William Colby (who was station chief in Rome during the 1950s); Clare Boothe Luce, who was U.S. ambassador to Rome at the same time; Ray Cline, another ex-CIA official; and John Connally, then a member of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. Their message, which doubtless reached the pope, was unequivocal: Eurocommunism was a threat to U.S. security, and Marxists must never be allowed to participate in the Italian government. This was not the first time pressures from outside the Vatican were exerted on Pope Paul. In 1967, Paul authored a controversial encyclical, Populorum Progressio, in which he criticized colonial repression and recommended economic and social remedies that were widely interpreted as a denunciation of capitalism. Shortly thereafter, an international group of businessmen asked the Holy Father to “clarify” his economic views. The delegation included George C. Moore, then chairman of Citibank. Pope Paul subsequently issued a statement in which he denied any hostility toward private enterprise. Liberation Theology Classified CIA studies prepared throughout the 1960s with titles such as “The Catholic Church Reassesses Its Role in Latin America” depicted a church with a commitment to economic and political reform. The studies foresaw the emergence of “liberation theology,” which would provide the theoretical basis for a “people’s church” that would establish itself in Latin America in the early 1970s. Pope Paul helped fulfill the CIA’s predictions by appointing socially conscious bishops and by encouraging church activists who opposed South American military dictatorships. Paul’s gesture toward the Left was, no doubt, a calculated maneuver directed at the hearts and minds of the Catholic masses. Political reality demanded the promotion of a palatable Christian alternative, lest the brethren put their faith in “Saint” Fidel or Che Guevara. At first, some CIA officials favored Paul’s reformist approach as an effective antidote to communism, but as time went by a consensus developed inside the agency that Paul VI had gone too far, that his strategy would backfire and play into the hands of the Marxist revolutionaries. As Pope Paul VI grew older, great concern developed within intelligence circles over who would succeed him. Agency analysts drew up profiles on leading papal candidates, identifying those who were likely to be sympathetic to American interests. In 1977, Terence Cardinal Cooke, the current Grand Protector and Spiritual Advisor of the SMOM, traveled to Eastern Europe to discuss the matter of choosing a candidate to succeed Pope Paul. During this sojourn, Cardinal Cooke met personally with Karol Cardinal Wojtyla of Krakow, who was noted for his anti-Communist leanings. Cooke’s coalition-building efforts bore fruit the following year, after Paul’s successor, Pope John Paul I, died, having served scarcely a month. (There were widespread rumors that he had been poisoned.) In October 1978, the Vatican’s Sacred College of Cardinals elected Karol Wojtyla as pontiff. The New Inquisition October 1976. Father Patrick Rice is dragged from his prison cell in Buenos Aires by members of the Argentine Anti-Communist Alliance, a paramilitary police agency. He has already been held incommunicado for several days and has been beaten ruthlessly. The routine is about to begin again: electric shock treatment, water torture that makes him feel as if he is drowning. Throughout the ordeal he hears the screams of other prisoners. Eventually he is transferred to police headquarters, in which are passage walls covered with swastikas. “My Christian faith became very real to me,” remembers the priest, who survived two months of captivity and recovered in a psychiatric ward. Father Rice is one of the lucky ones. During the past 15 years, 1,500 priests, nuns and bishops have been murdered, imprisoned, tortured or expelled from Latin America. “Any Christian who defends the poor,” says Rice, “can expect to be persecuted and mistreated by the security police.” Only a generation ago, the persecution of the Catholic clergy would have been unthinkable, for the church had always sided with the reactionary sectors of society — the wealthy landowners and the military. But Pope John XXII’s vision of Catholicism as a community of believers in and of the world sparked major reforms. His policies set the stage for the historic gathering of Latin American bishops that took place during the papacy of Paul VI at Medellin, Colombia, in 1968. It was at this conference that the liberation theology predicted by the CIA earlier in the decade was born. The bishops called upon the church to “defend the rights of the oppressed” and recognize a “preferential option for the poor” in the struggle for social justice. Liberation theology came to life in the form of thousands of grassroots Christian communities that sprang up throughout Latin America, where nine out of ten people are Catholic, and eight out of ten are destitute. Within these groups, religion became less a ritualistic phenomenon and more an inspiration to clergy and laity attempting to remove the yoke of oppression from the poor. Some priests even began to align themselves with the left-wing guerrillas engaged in armed struggle against U.S.-backed regimes. “The Christian base communities are the greatest threat to military dictatorships throughout Latin America,” said Maryknoll Sister Ita Ford in late 1980, three weeks before she, two other American nuns and Jean Donovan, a lay missionary worker, were brutally murdered in El Salvador. The CIA was quick to recognize the “subversive” potential of liberation theology and mounted an extensive campaign to undermine the new movement. The agency’s strategy, formulated during the late 1960s and early ’70s, when Richard Helms was director, was to exploit the polarization between the activist clergy and those who still identified with the established order (the holdovers from the Cold War era, when missionaries were routinely employed as agents and informants). Toward this end, as Penny Lernoux documents in her book Cry of the People, the CIA used right-wing Catholic organizations in Latin America to harass outspoken prelates and political reformers. The agency also trained and financed police agencies responsible for the torture and murder of bishops, priests and nuns, some of them U.S. citizens. In 1975, the Bolivian Interior Ministry — a publicly acknowledged subsidiary of the CIA — drew up a master plan for persecuting progressive clergy. The scheme, dubbed the “Banzer Plan” — after Hugo Banzer, Bolivia’s right-wing dictator (who retained Klaus Barbie as his security advisor) — was adopted by ten Latin American governments. The plan involved compiling dossiers on church activists; censoring and shutting down progressive Catholic media outlets; planting Communist literature on church premises; and arresting or expelling undesirable foreign priests and nuns. The CIA also funded anti-Marxist religious groups that engaged in a wide range of covert operations, from bombing churches to overthrowing constitutionally elected governments. The success of the Banzer Plan was vividly demonstrated in San Salvador in the late 1970s, when an anonymous group distributed a leaflet that read: “Be a Patriot! Kill a Priest!” A series of clerical assassinations followed, culminating in the murder of the progressive and popular Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero. More recently, the Reagan administration has sharpened its attack on progressive elements of the church, both at home and abroad. The Santa Fe Report, prepared for the Council for Inter-American Security and presented in 1980 to the Republican Platform Committee by a team of ultraconservative advisors, states that “U.S. foreign policy must begin to counter (not react against) liberation theology as it is utilized in Latin America by the ‘liberation theology’ clergy.” In order to garner support for this policy, the Institute for Religion and Democracy (IRD), an interdenominational organization, was established in 1981 with funding from right-wing institutions, including the Smith ‘Richardson and Sarah Scaife foundations, both of which have served as CIA financial conduits. The IRD unleashed a propaganda drive against church activists at the forefront of domestic opposition to U.S. aid to the government of El Salvador and other repressive regimes in Latin America. The IRD campaign has been highly successful, even reaching the pages of Reader’s Digest, from where it was picked up by 60 Minutes. The Holy Mafia Under Casey, the CIA has continued its attack on progressive elements within the church. Casey is also a member of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. Of all the groups that are engaged in the U.S.-sponsored campaign against liberation theology, none has played a more significant role than Opus Dei (“God’s Work”). A fast-growing Catholic lay society whose political activities are shrouded in secrecy, Opus Dei was founded in 1928 by Jose Maria Escriva de Balaguer, a young Spanish priest and lawyer. Escriva espoused complete obedience to church dogma. Today, there are more than 70,000 members of the order in 87 countries. Only a small percentage are priests. The rest are mostly middle- and upper-class businessmen, professionals, military personnel and government officials. Some are university students. The members contribute regularly to the group’s financial coffers and are encouraged to practice “holy shrewdness” and “holy coercion” in an effort to win converts. Much of what is known about Opus Dei comes from ex-members such as John Roche, a professor at Oxford University in England, who broke his oath of secrecy after leaving the order. According to Roche, self-flagellation with whips and spiked chains is a normal part of the rigid spiritual discipline that Opus Dei imposes on its full-time members, including college-age recruits of both genders. “Personal identity suffers a severe battering: some are reduced to shadows of their former selves, others become severely disturbed,” writes Roche in a paper called “The Inner World of Opus Dei.” “Internally, it is totalitarian and imbued with fascist ideas turned to religious purposes, ideas which were surely drawn from the Spain of its early years. It is virtually a sect or cult in spirit, a law unto itself, totally self-centered, grudgingly accepting Roman authority because it still considers Rome orthodox, and because of the vast pool of recruits accessible to it as a respected Catholic organization.” In recent years, Opus Dei has emerged internationally as one of the most powerful and politically committed of the Catholic lay groups. Detractors have likened the organization to a “saintly Mafia,” for its members control a large number of banks and financial institutions, including Rumasa, the largest conglomerate in Spain’s private sector. In the latter stages of the Franco regime, ten out of 19 cabinet officers belonged to or were closely allied with Opus Dei. Despite the active political role the order plays wherever it exists, Father Malcolm Kennedy, an American spokesperson for Opus Dei, insists it is “inconceivable…that Opus Dei leaders in any country would try to influence political decisions.” The tentacles of “Octopus Dei,” as it is sometimes called, stretch all the way to the U.S., where David Kennedy, former chairman of Continental Illinois Bank and treasury secretary under Richard Nixon, is said to be a “conspicuous friend” of the conservative religious order, despite the fact that he is a Mormon. Continental Illinois owns shares of an Opus Dei bank in Barcelona (for more on Kennedy’s links to the church, see box, page 37). Opus Dei also controls a wide range of media assets (600 newspapers, 52 radio and TV stations, 12 film companies and 38 news agencies) and sponsors educational and social programs in various countries. These efforts have been endorsed by members of the American section of the SMOM such as William Simon (Citicorp) and Francis X. Stankard (Chase Manhattan Bank), who have spoken at Opus Dei seminars and other functions of the group. “One of the problems that Opus Dei runs into,” says Sargent Shriver, a cooperating (not full-time) member of the order and a former Democratic candidate for vice president, “is that a lot of Catholics join the organization, and they’re doing this, that and the other thing, and Opus Dei becomes tainted because of them.” This is particularly true in Latin America. In Chile, for example, Opus Dei elicited support from Chilean bishops for the overthrow of President Salvador Allende and worked closely with CIA-funded organizations such as the Fatherland and Liberty goon squads, which subsequently merged with DINA, the dreaded Chilean secret police. In 1971, the CIA began financing the Chilean Institute for General Studies (IGS), which has been described as an Opus Dei think tank. Its members include lawyers, free-market economists and executives from influential publications. One of the leading IGS staffers was Hernan Cubillos, founder of Que Pasa, an Opus Dei magazine, and publisher of El Mercurio, the largest newspaper in Santiago (and one that was subsidized by the CIA). After the coup, a number of IGS technocrats became cabinet members and advisors to the Pinochet junta; Cubillos served as foreign minister. Opus Dei powerbrokers have gained enormous influence inside the Vatican since they helped install the current pope. The courting of John Paul II began when he was still the archbishop of Krakow. He was asked to speak at Opus Dei colleges and at the group’s international headquarters in Rome. In an effort to enhance Wojtyla’s image as papabile, these speeches were printed by Opus Dei in book form and circulated among members of the Vatican hierarchy. When Karol Wojtyla became pope, he returned the favor by elevating Opus Dei to the unique status of a “personal prelature.” Critics of Opus Dei fear that the pope’s edict will allow its members to elude the authority of local bishops in special circumstances, thereby strengthening the order’s tendency to function as a “church within a church.” This was an important victory for Opus Dei, which had been rebuffed on previous occasions by both Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI. The decision to upgrade the status of Opus Dei appears to be part of an over-all strategy to counter the influence of Jesuits and other progressive clerics active in the liberation theology movement. Pope John Paul II’s feud with the Jesuits came to a head in October 1981, when he suspended the order’s constitution and replaced its ailing superior general, Father Pedro Arrupe, with a Jesuit of his own choosing. Many Jesuits have caused turmoil in the ‘Vatican by questioning papal pronouncements on birth control, priestly celibacy, the barring of women from the priesthood and, most significantly, clerical involvement in politics. Because it is predominantly a lay organization, Opus Dei is exempt from these rules. The pope recently asked leaders of Opus Dei, which thus far has kept out of Communist countries, to begin operating in Poland. It is rather ironic that John Paul II should chastise priests for engaging in political activity when he is by far the most overtly political pope of modern times. A strong patriot, John Paul has even threatened to fight alongside his countrymen should the Soviets try to crush the workers’ rebellion in Poland. And his political activism has not only included well-publicized trips and rhetorical speeches. With his approval, the Vatican quietly funneled $40 million to Solidarity. But despite the pontiff’s support for the Polish union — and the issuing of an encyclical in strong defense of the rights of labor — his sympathies do not extend to the rights of workers in Vatican City: he has opposed demands for decent wages by the Vatican’s low-paid employees, and there have even been rumblings of a possible strike.

Armé otro documento con información y estadísticas de los autores que han tocado. Entre los más seleccionados, Jorge Luis Borges va a la cabeza, seguido por Neil Gaiman.
1) Ficción breve: “El espejo” de Haruki Murakami (PDF), sugerido por justroku. Haruki Murakami (1949) es un escritor y traductor japonés, autor de novelas y relatos. Es el escritor japonés más popular en Occidente, y la influencia de la literatura y la música occidental es notable en él. Aunque parte de la crítica de su país califica su obra de literatura pop, es reconocido a nivel internacional y ha ganado numerosos premios. Se lo suele asociar con el surrealismo y el posmodernismo.
3) Microrrelato: “La promesa del rey” de Snorri Sturluson, sugerido por Aleblanco1987. Snorri Sturluson (1179-1241) fue un escaldo (poeta guerrero vikingo), historiador, jurista y escritor islandés. En dos ocasiones fue elegido letrado del Alþing (Parlamento islandés). Es el autor de la Edda prosaica o Edda menor, que incluye narraciones de mitología nórdica y poesía. También es el autor de la Heimskringla, una historia de los reyes noruegos que comienza con un tono legendario en la Saga de los Ynglings y alcanza la primera parte del medioevo de la historia de Escandinavia.
La promesa del rey
Tostig, hermano del rey sajón de Inglaterra, Harold Hijo de Godwin, codiciaba el poder y se alió con Harald Hardrada, rey de Noruega. (Este había militado en Constantinopla y en África; su estandarte se llamaba Landsda, Desolador de Tierras; también fue poeta famoso). Con un ejército noruego desembarcaron en la costa oriental y rindieron el castillo de Jorvik (York). Al sur de Jorvik los enfrentó el ejército sajón. Veinte jinetes se allegaron a las filas del invasor; los hombres, y también los caballos, estaban revestidos de hierro. Uno de los jinetes gritó: —¿Está aquí el conde Tostig? —No niego estar aquí —dijo el conde. —Si verdaderamente eres Tostig —dijo el jinete— vengo a decirte que tu hermano te ofrece su perdón, su amistad y la tercera parte del reino. —Si acepto —dijo Tostig— ¿qué dará el rey a Harald Hardrada? —No se ha olvidado de él —contestó el jinete—. Le dará seis pies de tierra inglesa y, ya que es tan alto, uno más. —Entonces —dijo Tostig— dile a tu rey que pelearemos hasta morir. Los jinetes volvieron. Harald Hardrada preguntó, pensativo: —¿Quién era ese caballero que habló tan bien? El conde respondió: —Era Harold Hijo de Godwin. Antes que declinara el sol de ese día, el ejército noruego fue derrotado. Harald Hardrada pereció en la batalla y también el conde. Del capítulo XCI del décimo libro de la Heimskringla.
4) Poesía: “1964” de Jorge Luis Borges, sugerida por EduBA. Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) fue un escritor y traductor argentino, autor de cuentos, ensayos breves y poemas, y una destacada figura literaria del siglo XX. En sus textos, que muchas veces trascienden géneros y engañan al lector con su juego entre lo ficticio y lo real, se aúnan la filosofía, la mitología, la historia, lo onírico, la religión, el lenguaje y la intertextualidad.
Ya no es mágico el mundo. Te han dejado. Ya no compartirás la clara luna ni los lentos jardines. Ya no hay una luna que no sea espejo del pasado,
cristal de soledad, sol de agonías. Adiós las mutuas manos y las sienes que acercaba el amor. Hoy sólo tienes la fiel memoria y los desiertos días.
Nadie pierde (repites vanamente) sino lo que no tiene y no ha tenido nunca, pero no basta ser valiente
para aprender el arte del olvido. Un símbolo, una rosa, te desgarra y te puede matar una guitarra.
Ya no seré feliz. Tal vez no importa. Hay tantas otras cosas en el mundo; un instante cualquiera es más profundo y diverso que el mar. La vida es corta
y aunque las horas son tan largas, una oscura maravilla nos acecha, la muerte, ese otro mar, esa otra flecha que nos libra del sol y de la luna
y del amor. La dicha que me diste y me quitaste debe ser borrada; lo que era todo tiene que ser nada.
Sólo que me queda el goce de estar triste, esa vana costumbre que me inclina al Sur, a cierta puerta, a cierta esquina.
5) Cómic: Fables#1 de Bill Willingham, Lan Medina, Mark Buckingham Steve Leialoha, Craig Hamilton y Todd Klein (versión en inglés), sugerido por Fran. Bill Willingham (1956) es un escritor y artista de cómics estadounidense, conocido por su trabajo en los cómics Elementals y Fables. Ha escrito e ilustrado para juegos de rol y para DC, así como algunas novelas de fantasía y aventuras. Se describe a sí mismo como "rabiosamente pro-Israel" y afirma que Fables desde un comienzo pretendió ser una metáfora del conflicto israelí-palestino.
2017.04.18 17:40 ccm200Proposition de résumé sur l'élection, à destination des étrangers
Bonjour, J'ai constaté que le nombre d'étrangers créant des fils pour nous interroger sur l'élection avait un peu augmenté, et cela va sans doute s'accentuer jusqu'à ce weekend. Il n'y a, à ma connaissance, pas encore eu de gros megathread ou de commentaire en anglais sur lesquels les rediriger. Je me propose donc pour en ébaucher un. Je vais tenter de faire ça le mieux possible mais aussi le plus vite possible, avec l'idée de l'améliorer avec votre aide avant de le valider. Il y aura des trucs à corriger, des imprécisions, des manquements à la neutralité, des oublis et des fautes, car je suis fatigué et que mon anglais est bien rouillé. Et oui, on pourrait probablement se simplifier la tâche en compilant des articles tout prêts de médias anglo-saxons, mais il faut bien que quelqu'un ébauche un début de quelque chose je pense ? Sinon j'imagine qu'il n'y aura toujours rien d'ici ce weekend (ce qui n'est pas très grave mais je pense qu'une telle initiative va forcément se révéler utile). Guide to the upcoming French presidential election:
When is it? How does it work? the french electoral system:
French presidential elections happen every 5 years. Current President: François Hollande (Socialist Party). Not running for re-election. Two-round system= Unless a candidate gets more than 50% in the first round (it won't happen), all but the two candidates receiving the most votes, are eliminated, and a second round of voting is held between the top 2. First round: April 23rd 2017 (this sunday) Second round: May 7th 2017 (2 weeks later) The results will be known at 8pm. Our legislative elections will take place shortly after: For the National Assembly: June 11th and June 18th 2017 For the Senate: September 24th 2017
Who are the candidates?
There are 11 candidates in total. 4 of them are leading in the polls and have a real chance to qualify for the second round:
Marine Le Pen - National Front - Far-right - at 22%/23% in recent polls (Front National/FN)
Ideology: French nationalism, National conservatism, Souverainism, Protectionism, Right-wing populism, Anti-immigration, Hard euroscepticism. Her father Jean-Marie Le Pen, who founded the party, was an openly racist, anti semite and homophobic convicted holocaust denier who didn't actually seriously intend to govern. Since 2011, when she became leader of the FN, Marine Le Pen pursued a policy of "de-demonization" of the party by softening its image. She also shifted its position on the economical spectrum, turning the neoliberal agenda into a protectionist policy. The National Front has established itself as one of the largest political forces in France: it became the first French party at the 2014 European elections (with 25% of the votes); again in the last departmental elections; and again, came out in 1st place in the last regional elections with a historic result of just under 28% of the votes. Programme: opposition to the French membership of the European Union and the Schengen Area, economic protectionism and exit from the eurozone, zero tolerance approach to law and order issues, opposition to immigration, ban on religious symbols. Her campaign has been punctuated by judicial inquiries into fraud of her party, but it doesn't seem to have impacted her electorate. Results in previous presidential elections: 2012: Marine Le Pen 17,90% (3rd place in the first round) 2007: Jean-Marie Le Pen 10,44% (4rth in the first round) 2002: Jean-Marie Le Pen 16,86% (2nd in the first round, qualified for the second. He lost against Jacques Chirac)
Emmanuel Macron - Forward!/On The Move! - Center - at 22%/23% in recent polls (En Marche !/EM)
Ideology: Social liberalism, Pro-Europeanism, Third Way. Emmanuel Macron is a newcomer in french politics. A former investment banker at Rothschild Bank, he advised president François Hollande on economic reform before serving as economy minister from 2014 to last year. Although he has never held elected office, he decided to resign to create a new centrist political movement and run for the presidency. He claims to be "neither left-wing nor right-wing" or "both left-wing and right-wing", a progressive willing to shake up the french political landscape. Programme: pro-business, pro-EU, his policies aim at reforming the French economy. He has been backed by politicians from all tendencies (except the far-right) but critics say he talks in empty slogans in order to appeal to the masses. Results in previous presidential elections: X (never stood for any election, newcomer) The centrist MoDem party (that now backs Macron) came 5th in 2012 (with 9,13%), 3rd in 2007 (18,57%) and 4rth in 2002 (6,84%) but the context is very different this year. Macron's electorate comes from all tendencies and voted for either the right, the left or the center in previous elections, some also are former abstentionists.
Jean-Luc Mélenchon - Unsubmissive France/UnbowedFrance - Left/Far-left - at 18%20% in recent polls (La France Insoumise/FI)
Ideology: Ecosocialism, Left-wing populism, Environmentalism, Alter-globalization, Soft euroscepticism. Jean Luc Mélenchon is a former member of the Socialist Party, which he left in 2008, denouncing its "liberal drift". He founded the Left Party and ran for President in 2012 (coming in 4rth place). He created a new movement last year, for the purpose of running for the 2017 elections. Programme: establishment of a Sixth Republic through a constituent assembly (to reform the Constitution and get rid of the French "Republican Monarchy" political system), renegotiation of the EU treaties (Plan A) or referendum to leave it (Plan B: unlike Tsipras he intends to put a real pressure on his european counterparts with the threat of actually leaving), environmental planning, raise of the minimal wage, restoration of the full retirement age to 60, feminist agenda, independent stance of France on Foreign Affairs. He is backed by the Communists. His campaign has been recognized as probably the most successful one by most commentators (his use of social media notably was widely successful) and he saw a surge in the last month/month and a half of the campaign, stealing many votes from Socialist candidate Benoit Hamon. Detractors have criticized him for his stance on international matters, accusing him of being Pro-Poutine. Results in previous presidential elections: Jean-Luc Mélenchon: 11,10% in 2012 (4rth in the first round) The political offer on the far-left/left side was quite different in 2007 and 2002: including the data isn't useful.
François Fillon - The Republicans - Right - at 18%/20% in recent polls (Les Républicains/LR)
Ideology: Gaullism, Liberal conservatism, Christian democracy. Former Prime Minister under Sarkozy and a minister several times, François Fillon won the LR primary in December by surprise (polls didn't see it coming). Programme: liberal reforms including the dismissing of 500,000 civil servants, reform of the labour code and of the health insurance system, end of the wealth tax (ISF). His campaign was strongly criticized for its "Thatcherite" aspect and then he was accused of misappropriating about 1 million euros of public funds when a newspaper revealed that he hired his wife and two of his children as parliamentary assistants (legal in France) although it is doubtful whether they actually worked (illegal, of course). This affair was coined as the "Penelope Gate" scandal. From then on, his campaign took a darker and darker tone and his former respectable image totally changed. But he managed to preserve the support of his party and his core support base is standing firm. These include many traditionalist Catholics (who got radicalized politically since the parliamentary debates on gay marriage, in 2013). Results in previous presidential elections: 2012: Nicolas Sarkozy 27,18% (2nd in the first round, qualified for the second round. He lost against Hollande) 2007: Nicolas Sarkozy 31,18% (1st in the first round. He won against Ségolène Royal in the second round) 2002: Jacques Chirac 19,88% (1st in the first round. He won against Jean-Marie Le Pen in the second round)
Benoit Hamon - Socialist Party - Left - at 7,5%/8% in recent polls (Parti Socialiste/PS)
Voilà, je m'arrête là pour maintenant. Je voulais tous les lister mais ça prend du temps. Il faudra ajouter des photos et sans doute un paragraphe sur le contexte global du pays, économiquement socialement et politiquement. Ainsi qu'un gros paragraphe sur les sondages, l'abstention et tout ça, avec plein de liens. J'ai fait vite, soumettez toutes les corrections qui vous semblent nécessaires, sur le contenu comme sur le formatage. Et pas la peine de chercher à deviner qui je soutiens, je vais vous le dire : c'est Mélenchon. Forcément comme je trouve que c'est celui qui a le programme le plus intéressant, j'ai sans doute soigné sa partie davantage que celles des autres. Mais ce n'est qu'une ébauche, je ne comptais pas laisser comme ça, je reviendrai modifier lorsque mon esprit sera un peu plus clair et en prenant en compte vos suggestions. Les % de sondages que j'ai indiqués ne sont pas exacts, j'ai mis ce dont je me souvenais, ce sera à modifier en fonction des dernières tendances. J'ai juste pris comme support Wikipedia, il faudra ajouter d'autres sources, proposez celles qui vous semblent les plus pratiques pour nos amis étrangers.
2017.03.09 16:56 lulydelmar1"El momento populista" Entrevista con Alain de Benoist Droite-Gauche, c’est fini! Para leer con urgencia a la luz de las futuras elecciones en Francia y Europa.
Breizh-info.com: “Derecha e izquierda, ¡se terminó!”: Tal es el subtítulo de su trabajo. ¿En qué basa su declaración, sabiendo sin embargo que los candidatos, especialmente en Francia – y lo vemos con motivo de este período preelectoral -, afirman siempre estar a la derecha o a la izquierda (incluidos los extremos) en su mayor parte ? Alain de Benoist: Dediqué un capítulo entero de mi libro a la historia de la división derecha-izquierda. Además del hecho de que siempre ha existido una multitud de diferentes derechas e izquierdas, demuestro que a lo que esta división se refiere nunca deja de evolucionar con el tiempo. ¡Estar a la izquierda en 1880 era militar por el colonialismo; estar en la derecha era ser hostil a la separación de la Iglesia y el Estado! En el pasado la izquierda era el partido de la lucha de clases, hoy es el partido de los derechos individuales, mientras que gran parte de la derecha se ha unido a la defensa del mercado, al principio axiomático del interés y a la explicación económica del mundo. Los politólogos, por su parte, nunca han logrado dar una definición autorizada de la derecha y de la izquierda. En medio de una significativa crisis de identidad, los partidos de la derecha y de la izquierda se han vuelto incapaces de dar un significado preciso a estos términos. A esto se suma la desaparición de las familias sociológicas, donde la gente solía votar por un partido dado toda su vida: la gente hoy “zapea” (como con un mando a distancia frente al televisor. N.d.T.) de derecha a izquierda o al contrario, sin ver nada más que política de derecha hecha por los partidos de izquierda o política de izquierda hecha por los partidos de derecha. En cuanto a los ensayos políticos que aparecen en las bibliotecas, es cada vez más difícil decir si sus autores (Marcel Gauchet, Jean-Claude Michéa, Michel Onfray, etc.) están a la izquierda o a la derecha. La verdad es que la díada izquierda-derecha se ha vuelto obsoleta para el propósito de describir el panorama político actual. La división izquierda-derecha sólo funciona funcionalmente bajo el peso de los hábitos: hay una gravedad histórica de la lógica bipolar que es mantenida por el juego político, especialmente en el momento de las elecciones. Pero cuando nos referimos a las encuestas de opinión, vemos que a los ojos de la mayoría de los franceses, esta división está cada vez más desprovista de significado. En 1980, todavía sólo el 30% consideraba obsoletas las nociones de izquierda y derecha. En marzo de 1981 era el 33%; en febrero de 1988, el 48%; en noviembre de 1989, el 56%; en 2011, el 58%. ¡Hoy es el 73%! Una progresión extraordinariamente significativa. El surgimiento de los movimientos populistas, que a menudo articulan elementos de la derecha y elementos de la izquierda en la misma demanda política y social que emana de la base, contra una oferta política desde “arriba” considerada decepcionante, incluso insoportable, es una de las consecuencias de esta evolución. Por un lado, el populismo sustituye el eje horizontal derecha-izquierda por uno vertical “los que están arriba contra los que están abajo”, pero esto suscita, acompaña y acentúa nuevas divisiones que reemplazan cada vez más la división derecha-izquierda: la división entre aquellos que se benefician de la globalización y aquellos que son sus víctimas, la división entre los que piensan en términos de pueblos y los que sólo conocen una humanidad concebida como una suma de individuos, la división entre la Francia periférica y la Francia urbanizada, el pueblo y las élites globalizadas, la gente común y la Nueva clase, las clases populares así como las clases medias en proceso de declive y la gran burguesía globalista, los defensores de las fronteras y los partidarios de la “apertura”, los “invisibles” y los “sobre-representados” , “los conservadores y los liberales”, etc. La formidable ola de desconfianza hacia las élites (política, financiera, mediática y otras) no cesa de aumentar el populismo que tiene el efecto directo de eliminar – Mélenchón habló de “limpiar” – la vieja casta de los llamados partidos de gobierno. La democracia cristiana y el Partido Comunista han sido barridos en Italia, Syriza en Grecia casi provocó la desaparición del Pasok, la última elección presidencial en Austria fue disputada entre un ecologista y un populista. Podríamos dar muchos otros ejemplos. ¿Será diferente en Francia? No tengo la impresión. Entre todos los escenarios que siguen siendo posibles con respecto a la próxima elección presidencial, un duelo Macron-Le Pen en la segunda ronda no es el más improbable. Nadie parece darse cuenta de que en este escenario, y por primera vez en la historia de la elección presidencial, ninguno de los dos grandes partidos que han gobernado alternativamente Francia durante más de treinta años estaría presente en la segunda ronda, lo que representaría un giro histórico de la más alta importancia. Breizh-info.com: Los estratos populares parecen efectivamente exasperados, cansados, por la forma en que la ciudad es administrada. Pero, sin embargo, ¿son una fuerza que puede generar propuestas? ¿La tasa de abstención en las elecciones, la falta de movilizaciones en grandes manifestaciones sociales o societarias, no son signos de un abandono de la participación de la vida de la ciudad por parte del pueblo? Alain de Benoist: Son más bien la prueba de la amplitud de un malestar que echa raíces en la crisis de la representación: la gente tiene el sentimiento de que ya no es representada por sus representantes, muchos piensan que es inútil hacer uso en el día de las elecciones de una soberanía que saben que perderán el día después. Por eso los populismos aspiran a formas de democracia más directas, basadas en el referéndum o participativas, conscientes de las disfunciones y límites de una democracia liberal que ha sustituido la soberanía popular por la soberanía parlamentaria y que hoy está dirigida por una casta oligárquica que sólo busca defender sus solos intereses. Las clases populares no sólo están exasperadas por el “modo en que se maneja la ciudad”. Quieren poner fin a la gestión administrativa, es decir, poner fin al poder de una expertocracia que pretende que los problemas políticos sólo son problemas técnicos en último término (para los cuales sólo existe evidentemente una única solución racional) y que buscan rebajar el gobierno de los hombres a la administración de las cosas. Se dan cuenta de que la “gobernanza” es sólo un medio de gobernar sin el pueblo. Lo que Vincent Coussedière llamó el “populismo del pueblo” que no es otra cosa que una demanda dirigida a los políticos de practicar realmente la política en lugar de atenerse a la gestión. Me pregunta usted si los “estratos populares” son una “fuerza capaz de generar propuestas”. En primer lugar, llamar a las cosas por su nombre: los “estratos” populares son en realidad las clases populares y su oposición a las élites surge de la relación de clases, del mismo modo que la crítica del populismo traduce un desprecio de clase, la ideología dominante no es otra cosa más que la ideología de la clase dominante. Entonces, ¿qué se entiende por esta expresión estereotipada “fuerza que puede generar propuestas?”. El pueblo representa el poder constituyente, y está tanto más presente ante sí mismo cuando tiene los medios para decidir por sí mismo lo que le concierne. Ya se trate de la inmigración, la globalización, o el poder de la Comisión Europea, la gente ve que los otros nunca han dejado de decidir en su lugar, y que estas decisiones han alterado su vida cotidiana. Es perfectamente apto para juzgar lo que es bueno y malo para sí mismo. Para que haga “propuestas”, hace falta solamente que se le consulte o que se le den los medios para decidir. Breizh-info.com: ¿Por qué la palabra “populismo” recibe una tan mala prensa – calificando a cada uno de sus opositores – dentro de la élite? Alain de Benoist: “Populismo”, como “comunitarismo” [comunitarismo se refiere a la actitud de las minorías, raciales o sexuales por ejemplo, a separarse de la sociedad en general. N.d.T.], también se convirtió en una palabra chicle que la Nueva Clase utiliza como un revulsivo para deslegitimar todo lo que detesta. El “populismo” tiene mala prensa entre las élites porque cubre todo lo que execran y temen más: el regreso de las “clases peligrosas”. Más claramente: el despertar de los pueblos decididos a perpetuar sus valores, su modo de vida y su propia sociabilidad. No es una coincidencia si la crítica del populismo se transforma muy rápidamente en crítica del pueblo, representado actualmente como una masa de paletos ignorantes. El proletario cuya dignidad (“pobre pero digno”), decencia y honestidad se alababa hace poco, se ha convertido en los en los medios de comunicación en una mezcla de Bitru y Dupont-Lajoie [ Nota del traductor: Bitru es un personaje que representa al “francés común” en una novela, y Dupont-Lajoie fue una película realizada en 1975 con una descripción muy crítica del francés común ], inculto, malvado, xenófobo y retrógrado, que se empeña obstinadamente en no confiar en “los que saben” y que jamás vota como queremos que lo haga. Se entiende así que la gente no sabe lo que quiere, o que cuando hace saber que quiere algo, no debe tenerse en cuenta. “¡Estamos hartos del pueblo!”, eructó Daniel Cohn-Bendit al día siguiente del Brexit. Diciendo así en voz alta lo que otros pensaban en silencio. Breizh-info.com: El fin de la ideología estuvo marcado por olas “populistas” en Europa, pero también y sobre todo por el advenimiento de una forma de desencantamiento del mundo, dominado en gran parte hoy por las potencias económicas a través de la publicidad y la globalización. A partir del momento en que el hijo de un militante comunista estalinista arraigado en su suburbio rojo se convirtió en un trotamundos que trabajaba para diferentes firmas internacionales y se sentía como en casa en todas partes, ¿cómo recrear mañana – y alrededor de qué – una esperanza colectiva para los pueblos? Y esto de otra forma que halagando ciertos bajos instintos… Alain de Benoist: una observación en primer lugar: el desencantamiento del mundo, cuyas raíces están lejos de ser contemporáneas, no señala el “fin de las ideologías”, una expresión de moda pero que estrictamente no significa nada, precisamente porque ninguna sociedad puede existir sin someterse a la influencia de una ideología dominante. Hoy vivimos en la ideología de la mercancía, es decir, en una era donde el imaginario simbólico ha sido colonizado ampliamente por los valores mercantiles (calculabilidad, rentabilidad, ganancia, etc.). La desconexión social, el tecnomorfismo, el surgimiento del individualismo narcisista, en conjunción con este “fetichismo de la mercancía” (Karl Marx) para transformar al individuo en un “sujeto autómata” que tiene cada vez más una relación con sus semejantes calcada a la relación con las cosas. La respuesta a la pregunta que ustedes plantean depende precisamente de la posibilidad de abandonar esta ideología de la mercancía, consecuencia lógica de la antropología liberal, que hace del hombre un ser egoísta que busca permanentemente maximizar su mejor interés material y privado. Eso implica rehabilitar la esfera pública en relación con la esfera privada y recrear las condiciones para el surgimiento de un proyecto colectivo. Suelo decir que en la expresión “bien común”, la palabra que más cuenta es la segunda. El papel de la política es en efecto el de producir lo común. Este común, que es la condición del verdadero “vivir juntos” – expresión hoy sacrificada para darle un sentido totalmente opuesto al suyo-, necesariamente echa raíces en los valores compartidos, formados por la historia y por la cultura, y en los cuales podría reconocerse vuestro “hijo de militante comunista estalinista” tanto como un joven francés tentado por el exotismo yihadista. Pero está claro que estamos lejos de eso, en una sociedad que no quiere conocer mas que a individuos, que ha olvidado que las razones para vivir y las razones para morir son las mismas, y que se imagina que el vínculo social se reduce al contrato jurídico y al intercambio mercantil . Breizh-info.com: ¿De qué forma podría surgir este “momento populista” que evoca? Alain de Benoist: Bajo muchas formas diferentes, por supuesto, porque el populismo no es una ideología (lo que explica su carácter polimórfico). Durante el año 2016 solo, un representante del Movimiento Cinco Estrellas fue elegido al frente de la alcaldía de Roma, Inglaterra abandonó la Unión Europea, el FPÖ austriaco estuvo a punto de la elección de uno de sus representantes a la presidencia de la república, el Frente Nacional superó el 40% en algunas elecciones locales, Podemos se apoderó de loa ayuntamientos de Madrid y Barcelona, Alternativa por Alemania (AfD) confirmó su ascenso en Alemania, Viktor Orban se impuso en el seno del grupo de Visegrado, Donald Trump fue elegido en los Estados Unidos, Matteo Renzi debió abandonar la presidencia del Consejo en Italia, Hollande y Valls, Juppé y Sarkozy han sido (o están en proceso de ser) devueltos a sus hogares. Así que el “momento populista” no es pues una eventualidad: ya está aquí. Pero todavía es demasiado pronto para elaborar el balance que, cuando llegue el momento, será necesariamente contrastado. Breizh-info.com: ¿Hay comparaciones históricas o geográficas que pudiera usted hacer con el escenario que se está desarrollando en Europa hoy? Alain de Benoist: verdaderamente no. Podemos hacer comparaciones con los populismos de finales del siglo XIX (el movimiento naródnik en Rusia, el de los granjeros grangers en los Estados Unidos) o en Francia, con el movimiento boulangiste. También podríamos evocar el final de la República de Weimar. Pero creo que eso no nos llevaría muy lejos. La historia no sirve de nuevo los mismos platos, como dijo Céline, y las comparaciones históricas, por interesantes que puedan ser, encuentran rápidamente sus límites. Es mejor considerar que la historia está siempre abierta, especialmente cuando vemos el gran ciclo de la modernidad cerrándose en estos momentos. Los contornos de un mundo que hemos conocido, incluso a veces amado, se disipan ante nuestros ojos, mientras que el mundo por venir sigue siendo nebuloso. El populismo participa en esta transición en su camino. Queda por saber lo que esto puede anunciar. Breizh-info.com: Alain de Benoist, ¿cuál es su receta para lograr producir tantas obras, artículos, resúmenes, fuentes y argumentos, con esta frecuencia? Alain de Benoist: No hay receta. Para mí, como para todo el mundo, los días son sólo de veinticuatro horas! Trato sólo de organizarme bien y no perder mi tiempo en actividades mundanas y discusiones inútiles. Trabajo 70 horas a la semana, lo que me ha permitido publicar hasta ahora un poco más de 100 libros, 2000 artículos y 600 entrevistas (¡esta será la 638!). No obtengo ninguna gloria en particular: la cantidad no es garantía la calidad, ¡y no concedo ningún valor moral al trabajo! Breizh-info.com: ¿ cuáles son las últimas obras que ha leído, apreciado, y que recomendaría a nuestros lectores? Alain de Benoist: Primero el libro de Jean Vioulac, Science et révolution (PUF), que constituye una aproximación innovadora ala cuestión de la técnica a la luz del pensamiento fenomenológico de Husserl, luego la pequeña obra de Ludwig Klages, L’homme et la Terre, que data de 1913 y acaba de ser traducida en francés (por RN Editions). En otro campo: la reedición, a las ediciones bretonas Yoran Embanner, de tres estudios importantes de Françoise Le Roux y Christian-J. Guyonvarc’h: La civilisation celtique, Les fêtes celtiques y La souveraineté guerrière de l’Irlande.
