A significant section of society believes in certain “truths” about the political system without ever questioning it. The “axiom” that all politicians are corrupt is one of the most widespread, not necessarily factual evidence. While such a general statement is nearly impossible to prove, it reflects a generalized sense of dissatisfaction with the political class, which is tasked with improving overall welfare, but at times interferes. And, of course, the fact that politicians are public servants who are remunerated by all of us so that many of their benefits feel even more unfair. This perception is probably also linked to the fact that politicians generally live their lives in a comfortable socio-economic situation, in comparison to the majority of the society which is finding it increasingly difficult to make ends meet.

The emergence of specific examples which show dishonesty by the political class helps to reinforce the above concept. a recent video Shows in Argentina how the Minister of Labor of the province of Buenos Aires under former governor María Eugenia Vidal, now a national deputy and presidential candidate for 2023, and the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI) lawmakers, businessmen and spies A group conspired. The creation of legal cases against union leader Juan Pablo “Pata” (“The Foot”) Medina during the Mauricio Macri administration.

FT ran a local subsidiary of the Labor Union for the Creation of the Argentine Republic (UOCRA) in La Plata, the provincial capital of the all-important Buenos Aires province. As writing for journalist Emilia Delfino Profile, ft. owned seven properties including one in the exclusive beach town of Carrillo, a speed boat and several pickup trucks and luxury vehicles, while the companies sold for them about 100 million pesos in 2017, the exchange rate of that year. But about $7 million. He was gunned down for setting up an illegal association and money laundering, and is estimated to have generated 11 billion pesos in damages to the construction sector (more than $700 million), as well as 9,520 jobs. Foot controlled construction in La Plata, deciding which projects went ahead and which did not, while forcing companies to hire services controlled by their stooge. In 2016, the Medina clan entered the Macri administration’s voluntary tax amnesty regime, declaring funding for some 8 billion pesos ($570 million).

Foot, clearly a scoundrel, is now accusing the Vidal administration of illegally persecuting him, while Argentina’s largest union, the Moyano family (Teamsters’ Union), comes forward to accuse the Macri administration of political persecution. has come. Unfortunately, they are right. The Macri administration, which claimed to be a “killer of populism” and sought to end corruption, became part of the problem. Like the Kirchners before him, Macri used the intelligence services and the judiciary to his advantage. Christina Kirchner and many of her close associates were investigated, sentenced, and some of them behind bars. In many cases, corruption was evident, in others the judiciary prosecuted policy decisions as if they were crimes. At the end of the day, these events are a continuation of a operating mode Which goes at least as far back as Carlos Menem.

Cristina Kirchner fills her mouth by law which defines it as a systematic plan by “oligarchs” and “factual powers” to eliminate “progressive” Latin American leaders. Macri, under intense scrutiny since leaving power, accuses the Fernández-Fernández administration of political persecution. They are all right, and wrong at the same time. At least in Argentina, the judiciary and intelligence services have always been used by the political power of the time for political and economic gain.
