Analysis. Why Franco’s Memory Is Putting the West and the Church To the Test


    The event, in fact, presupposes and circularly aggravates the removal of the tragic complexity, and of the human lesson, of the Civil War as event, from its preconditions to the long civil peace that followed it, intended by the General and, by paradox, due to him

    The removal, if not of the history then certainly of its significance and sacredness, is the effect of the post-Francoist civil “reconstruction” and of the “democratic” ideological pedagogies

  socialistic, neo-Buddhist and neo-Christian tendencies of the nineteenth century and of more recent pacifism. Pope Francis is already this.
