Tensions and consensus

From the strategic point of view, there is a method for the construction of political analysis when it refers to a territorial-temporal space, with certain actions (causes and consequences) and is to start filling in the reflective political spaces, as for example, from a simple and basic question: What is happening right now, politically in Venezuela? The possible answers are becoming more complex according to the “political gaze” that the people who carry out the reflection - interpretation of the Venezuelan socio-political reality have. The possible answers will be very varied and even contradictory between them. Faced with a simple and clear question, in which one cannot fail to recognize the influence and impact that both political thought and emotionality have in political analysis, and which becomes even more complicated when it falls into the field of the guilt and responsibilities.

The first answer begins by stating that for more than 20 years there has been a very clear political polarization in Venezuela in which nobody doubts the existence of a Chavismo vs. anti-Chavismo. And that others have called it as the clash between two models: socialism and capitalism. There are also other sectors that qualify it politically, such as the classic and traditional division and confrontation between "the left and the right" and yet the political dynamics is so complex that in recent times it has been emerging to the surface of the political debate. Venezuelan, on other political forms and nuances in which we are polarized.

Now we are talking about those who project the worsening of a political environment based on "tensions" both internally between the various political factors and external ones, by the empire and governments of the international right, with sanctions and blockades that maintain the country in "a tense environment."

On the other hand we have the political sectors that seek consensus to achieve institutional stability, using the mechanisms of elections, negotiations, and agreements.

In other words, a polarization between those who want crisis and those who want peace.
