A literal conversation has pierced our recent history: every time the Argentine State has talked about “internal security”, it said: “internal commotion because of human action”.

A literal conversation has pierced our recent history: every time the Argentine State has talked about "integration to the world", it said: “to go into debt in order to integrate us and grow”.

What is “unprecedented” about this literality is that the previously mentioned conversation has not been a reason for debate. And it is a conversation that shakes our corporeality daily, given that, for the last fifty years, the bodies that have revolted against this conversation have undergone two particular fates: disappearance or debt. And in the “second survival” (those of us who have not disappeared but got into debt) this conversation has politicized our bodies to the extreme.

 

 

The words:

The “internal commotion” (in this conversation) is nothing but political action as a protest practice of the political thing.

And “to go into debt” (in this conversation) is nothing but the obligation of a sweating body, in a daily task, to comply with another body (which does not sweat).

The things:

The laws that regulate the political bodies (and their actions of protest) have spelt the laws that regulate the economic bodies (and their obligation to pay).

In 1957, Argentina joined the International Monetary Fund for the first time in its history.

In 1958, Argentina got its first standby credit. At the same time, Argentina passed the secret decrees of the “Conintes” plan (Conmoción Interna del Estado, that is, Internal Commotion of the State), that left any union conflict in the hands of the armed forces, and allowed them to dispose of the bodies on strike. That same year, the Argentine State brought the first French instructors to teach the officers of the Argentine Army how to torture dangerous bodies, those who cause the “internal commotion”.
