I could use an endless number of verbs to define what this Government and its partners are doing with our nation: disassemble, unsew, disjoin, dismember, dismantle, disarm, destroy… dismember. They all begin with the prefix ‘des’, which denotes ‘negation or inversion of the meaning of the simple word to which it is prefixed’. And it is that the Spanish language has a lexicon abundant in nuances referring to different aspects of the same purpose, which in this case consists of ending our country.

History is no longer contemplated in its natural chronological framework to follow arbitrary, sectarian channels, impregnated with arrogant presentism that empty it of meaning to turn it into an incomprehensible jumble of ideological slogans.

That’s called treason.
