56 years ago in the beautiful Magyar Capital, the Hungarian people rose up violently against an authoritarian regime and in unison fought for their emancipation. At stake the overthrow of a totalitarian system that castrating the individual (and collective) freedoms of its citizens survived sustained by a select elite artificially anchored to an ideology devoid of any social support and fettered imported orders from a super-structure entity based in foreign soil (and I am not referring to the Barroso-Commission that today from Brussels - at the behest of Berlin - chains today’ Europe to a set of austerity policies devoid of any social support intervening directly – and in a totalitarian way - in the lives of our fellow citizens, castrating their essential freedoms).
Thirty-odd years later, this regime - and its brothers – imploded. New bards of Freedom took the stage then, backed by some of those who slept on the other side of the curtain. Many wailed for the end of History and the advent of a 'New Man': the Homos-democraticum (and liberalis).
Taking advantage of the bounty, a well prepared set of Über-Homos (meta-political beings living between uncharted hotels 'lounges' and close-doors restaurants) decided to aim for the total dominance of the announced New Era. In order to achieve such desideratum, these well financed High Banking and International Finance men and their active politicians working behind the scenes of such gentlemen's clubs (as indeed it is only of men we are speaking), consolidated an already defined strategy (in the 80’s) by further injecting money in think tanks, universities and political projects aligned with their idealized pagan neo-liberalism motto: the Market is God. Profit, Christ.
Under these majestically funded assumptions the new bases for the current capitalist system phase were build. Media and Communication projects sponsored (to pass the Truth), and a new elite selected in universities, political parties and newsrooms. Then, the young were educating according to the new dogmas, while the 'old' (the ones that 20 years earlier had caught the 'virus of the Left') were rehabilitated. Then with the machine set and the pieces in place, it took little time for the cultural and discursive hegemonic appropriation, first, and then to the European and worldwide institutional and political take-over.
All was going well with the plan until the mechanisms triggered to respond to the 2008 financial crisis exposed the inhuman nature of those who managed to turn a plain financial crisis into a social holocaust; scattering in the process, like wings of Icarus burned by the disdain for those who suffer every day, the cultural and political hegemony patiently built in the recent decades (and whose zenith was the placement of Barroso at the Union’s helm). And if the screams of the ‘56 Hungarian revolution took more then 30 years to be heard in freedom, I do not think it will take long for the voices of the millions of citizens who are daily fetter with more austerity are transformed into a definitive transformative choir.
The end of this History is here, then. We're just waiting for Women and the new Men.
