The government is hardly going to reverse the situation in terms of insecurity.

Violence is so embedded in us that it is already part of our daily lives, and as things go, there is evidence that authoritative tactics do not help. We are facing one of the great problems that has torn apart the social fabric, our personal relationships and our daily mobility.

While there is no way to solve the problem of insecurity in the here and now, imagining it in the future is an alternative to instituting policies that include not only those responsible for security, but also civilians to be strategically involved. needed.

It is about creating a new civic culture and different everyday relationships. Without losing the underlying meaning of “hugs not bullets”, it is clear that this is a duty, because the way we live does not allow collateral or accidental exits.

The force of the state is needed to look at organized crime, specifically, that the government is not going to allow them to function comfortably, despite the fact that they “kill each other”, in the end everything. It is part of what makes us as a nation.

The recurring criticism of the greeting given by the president to El Chapo Guzm├ín’s mother is seen as an honorable act, adding that the president has refused to receive social organizations that have asked him for help. . the way you receive them; The case of children suffering from cancer at this time is condemnable.

The violence is so deep that it cannot be seen how it can be resolved. Over the years we have “learned” to live in fear, feeling completely unsafe by the authorities and eventually by the state.

The greatest urgency is to change our living conditions, but for now, no matter how hard the official discourse tries to make us see “change,” little or nothing changes in daily life. One of the most delicate aspects is that we consider violence a part of our daily lives.

We have taken this for granted and we are becoming increasingly aware that precise policies have not been established that allow the state of things to change, beyond conjuncture or political discourse.

It is not just about this government, it is about how, for decades, violence has entered us without officers with minimal capacity to withstand.

When the governor of Zacatecas speaks of a “cursed legacy”, he loses sight of those who have ruled the kingdom, but above all remains the impression that it is a way of escaping his responsibility, which He already has.

The discussion of the past on this and other issues is no longer valid. The president has been in power for more than three years and many things that happen and are experienced are already his responsibility, time goes against him and if the situation is not changed.

Let’s not just think about organized crime, let’s look at underground, daily, family violence against women and children amid a lack of opportunities to re-establish the social fabric.

Violence has led us to change our lives and routines, to live among fears and anxieties, and to be exposed in our own places.

The issue does not pass by variables such as optimism or pessimism, it lies in the brutal land of stubborn reality, which remains untouched in many of its areas. What we experience these days confirms the maze we are in, a brutal risk to normalize it.


Mandatory L Cultural D Cause Last Saturday included an essay not to be missed, “La Nueva Intolerance” by Ral Trejo Delarabre. We highlight a short paragraph: “Tolerance within pluralism is to enforce the identity of others and their differences with ours without discourse. But that respect also means analyzing, questioning, and being here at others’ opinions. Not even refraining from being rejected.”
