Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner: “Growing inequality leads to a crisis of democracy”

“I think we do not honor so much trust, so much love and so much hope that they put in us.” This is how he closed his master class in the city of Resistencia, Chaco, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner surrounded by about ten thousand people who listened attentively. Minutes after Alberto Fernandez spoke from Ushuaia, where he participated in the sale of houses, the vice-president said that at present the ruling party is not going through a moment of “fighting”, but of “discussing ideas”. “About the ideas that I have been talking about all my life and that I have implemented when I ruled,” he said. The former Argentine president, who arrived in the city of Resistencia at around 4:00 pm local time and was received by Governor Jorge Kapitanić and Deputy Governor Analia Rah Quiroga, indicated that “certain things need to be reviewed” in the government. to eliminate “a phenomenon that is happening in Argentina like never before” where “workers in dependent relationships are poor”.

In his dissertation, receiving an honorary doctorate University of the Southern Chaco, the Vice President devoted a few minutes to one of the structural issues of the economy that she always talks about, the bi-monetary economy and, among other things, its impact on inflation. “This is a serious issue that requires agreements, but also requires management to follow up on this. Because you can see that in 2020 and 2021 there was a huge jump in exports in terms of quantity and price. We had a surplus, which I did not have at the age of 12, and, however, we have problems with reserves in the Central Bank. So what’s going on with the monetary management?” he said.

In the same vein, he pointed to the need to propose tougher measures against concentrated sectors of the economy: “Political leaders are afraid to imagine change, to imagine things different from what we are experiencing,” he asked. The vice president explained that she does not give advice from the position of an “academician”, but because He spent eight years at Casa Rosada “taking penalties and dodging bullets”..

The criticism had a double addressee. On the one hand, they pointed to the opposition and discourse in the media, which claims that the money issue is the main cause of inflation, which contradicts the data for the past seven years, as well as the president’s economic team. “If the diagnosis is that inflation and spending in this country is linked to the dollar, the only thing that permanent devaluation does is increase and maintain the momentum of inflation. For these things, we discuss, argue, and oppose certain things. Even in matters of power, not because of money matters, not because he looked at me badly or did not invite me to eat.


Militants, provincial government officials, mayors and national legislators began arriving at the Gala Hotel Convention Center from 2:00 pm. The location, located a few kilometers from Resistencia International Airport, was also the stage in 2019 at the book launch of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner in the Chaco.

The vice-president, who, according to her circle, will make more frequent trips of this kind to different provinces, arrived at 17:05 local time in a closed hall for 4,200 people, where she delivered a speech. The public was waiting for her with the flags of La Campora, Colina, La Dignidad and posters with her face and the face of former President Néstor Kirchner. They also applauded her under the exclamation of “cordial president” and sang the Peronist march. “It will stay in your retina for life”said the excited Chaco fighters, who kept in touch with the former president while she delivered her speech.

Another song repeated by the gunmen was “Coqui Presidente” in reference to Kapitanić. Many speculated that the vice president’s visit to the Chaco might be a hint at the governor’s nomination as a candidate from possible internal ruling parties in 2023, but Kapitanih decided to keep a low profile and did not take the stage or give a speech. He and the vice president drove together from the airport to the hotel. On this journey, Kapitanych told him: “How difficult it must be for you to speak, because when you speak, things change, you are manipulated, and when you are silent, they complain about your silence.”

On the stage

Along with the Vice President on the stage were Chaco Southern University Chancellor Herman Ostmann and Provost Manuel Garcia Sola. They were in charge of giving Fernandez de Kirchner the Honoris Causa, diploma, medal and stole the honours, which the vice president put on her shoulders smiling and doing a V for victory. In the front row were Senator Oscar Parrilli, Senate Administrative Secretary Luz Alonso, Chaco Senators Antonio Rodas, Maria Inés Pilati Vergara and deputy and former Malvinas fighter Aldo Leiva, as well as mayors. and officials.

The vice president, as the title of her conference suggests, spoke of democratic discontent. Accordingly, he criticized the three powers of the state. It began with the judiciary, then the legislature and ended with the executive. He questioned the opposition’s push for a unified paper ballot project, which he likened to “garlic or sausages,” and felt that society had more important problems, including that “it doesn’t have a job and doesn’t get money.”

With regard to the judiciary, the Vice President condemned that “When a ruler wants to enforce the law, it seems that a measure of precaution prevents it”. He criticized the intervention of the Supreme Court in the Council of Judges and emphasized: “The Council is headed by 13 to 20 members, and the court consists of only four people, and this is fantastic. can you compress a little? “The only thing I ask of you is that no one in the executive, legislative or judicial branches of government pose as a victim, here the only victims are those who do not make ends meet, do not have a job, do not have the means to feed their children. These are the victims. And for those whom we are obliged to discuss and discuss, ”he concluded.

Capital without ideology

In another section of his speech, he pointed out that capitalism “as a system for the production of goods and services has become independent of ideologies” and singled out China’s development as one of the “most successful” capitalist models. He cited the development of the People’s Republic of China over the past 70 years as an example and ironically: “There is a catchphrase that says that investments go where there is legal security. Hi, how are you? The largest investments in recent decades by globalized companies from around the world are taking place in China.”

In another passage, he confirmed that if he had to choose the Constitution, he would be left with the “constitution of 1853”, although he clarified that he preferred the one that was sanctioned in 1949 under the government of Juan Domingo Perón.

He later highlighted the paradox that “more and more workers are in bad dependency relationships” and warned that “growing inequality leads to a crisis of democracy” that emerged from the French Revolution. “It never happened. Poverty has always been outside of formal work,” he said.

hormones and neurons

Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner referred to the election she held from Alberto Fernandez as Peronist presidential candidate in 2019. She said that these “choices” were not a matter of “generosity” but of “reason.” In this regard, he clarified that the “discussion” with the president is not for “authorities.”

“I chose a man who did not represent any political force, but also criticized me harshly since 2008,” he said and distinguished him from the chairman of the Chamber of Deputies, Sergio Massa, saying that he did have a party structure. He also noted the contrast with Hector Dyer, leader of the CGT, and Emilio Persico of the Evita movement. “There will be a power dispute,” he said. The former president also assured that “I never make decisions from hormones, but from neurons”.

Another question concerned the Minister of Industrial Development Matias Kulfas for not taking sufficiently tough measures against price producers and the Minister of Social Development Juan Zabaleta. According to him, the President suggested to Maximo Kirchner that Andrés Larroque manage this large-budget portfolio previously held by Daniel Arroyo. The vice president explained that Máximo had told her that it was best to have someone Fernández trusted to drive. The former president of Argentina referred to this example to refute the theory that La Campora kept all the “boxes” of the government.
