Let us grow by 2020!

I wish 2020 to be an exceptional year. Exceptional, I mean. Different. I want us to grow up. But I imagine my desire is not what you imagine.


Many times, the vast majority would say that the things that happen to us in life are determined by a previous decision. Both the good ones and the bad ones. I mean, for something transcendental to happen, we have to make a decision that drives it. The fact that we grow by 2020 depends, then, on our decision.

Oh, yeah. It seems like a truthfulness. And maybe it is; I'm not saying no. But in any case, it would be one of those we love. The ones we dismiss.

Let's get to the point. Growing up, then, is a decision that is made. Well, it seems that the Argentines haven't taken it yet


You're thinking I'm talking about growing up economically. The economy is the greatest national concern. Another truth of the truth. We just brought down a government that, apart from numbers, did everything more than good. But the numbers didn't give him, and the dacho.

We have just voted for a front that promises growth in just two years. I hope it turns out.

I regret to inform you that in order to grow economically, there must be other factors first. Not just in finance.

The first thing that must happen is to have a country project. I would like to believe that the Argentine project is not to impoverish people and hold them hostage to the vote. Although it all reacts that way. If that wasn't the project, from President Frondizi there isn't one. And that is one of the reasons why we are where we are and not among the best countries in the world. Without a country project suitable for the 21st century, we go to poverty, whoever governs.

To have a solid country project, you need someone who can think about it. To have someone who can think about it, we have to choose people who have the mind to think about it.

The problem is, we don't want to see it.

We continue like laboratory hamsters, spinning in a wheel that takes us nowhere. Believing the next one saves us. Without thinking about how to save us.

What happens is that, to think about how to save ourselves, we have to make the decision to think. Face the responsibility of making mistakes. The possible hits. The struggle to get through. That's something we don't want to see.

There is an Arabic proverb that says something like this: “Difficult times form strong men, who transform those times into easy times, who form weak men, who transform those times into difficult times.”

Our grandparents fought hard times. They were strong. They turned those times into easy ones. And Argentina was the granary of the world and the fourth power. But those easy times made men weak. They created difficult times. That's how we are today. Paralyzed. Terrified. Blinded.

These difficult times need strong men. That should be us.

There is no human being who is not afraid of something. There are human beings who dominate their fears. And dominating fear does not happen without first the decision to master it. The one we have to take today. For us, not for our children. Because in twenty years, which are nothing, Argentina will be inserted into the world as a protagonist or will be like most African countries. And we're still gonna be alive.

The decision to master fears is called “grow”

So, our hope is that we will make that decision by 2020. Let's not delay her any longer. Let's face our panic at once. After all, we don't do well; we don't have much to lose. And we have millions to win.

Happy 2020!
