OTRA CARA DE LOS INFORMES

No me obsesiona mirar el vaso medio vacío, o solo los lados oscuros de la luna. No soy un pesimista por naturaleza, pero tampoco me gustan los elogios ditirámbicos de los gobernantes (y sus cortesanos) a sus propios actos y obligaciones. Me corrijo: no sólo no me gustan, me parecen intolerables en sociedades maduras, responsables, es decir, democráticas. Prefiero que los gobernantes gobiernen sin montar sus fastuosos aparatos de comunicación (y cooptación) para propagar sus bondades; y cuando llegue el momento de los informes, que los gobernados los califiquemos, de preferencia, con criterios más allá de los colores partidistas y los juicios baratos que alientan la necesidad de cuidar el empleo, la zalamería o la incapacidad para discernir entre deberes y derechos.

Estas reflexiones vienen a propósito de estas fechas de informes y mundos color caramelo. Mientras leo que todo son primeros lugares, números más promisorios, más acciones que nunca, más beneficiados, más apoyos, más, más… ya no acierto a pensar si vivo en mi país (o un estado mexicano) o en Helsinki.

Pienso, y pregunto, por qué los ceremoniales de ese tipo no se suprimen y dan paso a otros, lejos del culto a la personalidad, menos fastuosos y más inteligentes porque consideren a la ciudadanía más inteligente. Cómo hacerlos exactamente, no lo sé. Pero no más farsas. Pregunto, por ejemplo, por qué los informes gubernamentales no explican cosas como las que listo a continuación: cuántos crímenes no se aclararon; cuántos millones de pesos se despilfarraron en obras mal construidas o reconstruidas; cuántos pacientes murieron en los hospitales (para darle sentido a los datos de los informes: cuántas camas de hospital más se sumaron en el año) por problemas de la burocracia médica, presupuestos insuficientes o malas prácticas; cuántos burócratas deben trabajar más y mejor; cuántos millones de pesos se gastan en ceremoniales, representaciones, fiestas; cuántas de las gestiones realizadas en los viajes de promoción de hace uno, dos años fueron reflejadas en inversiones de pesos y centavos; cuánto crecieron sus riquezas personales calculadas en salarios mínimos, para dar una idea de la proporción (o desproporción) entre ellos y los que menos ganan; cuántos pobres y miserables más se sumaron en el sexenio y cómo se resolverá el problema en diez o quince años (no sólo cuántas becas y despensas).

No sé si la información que comento arriba, como muestra, sea relevante, pero podría ser útil para darle sentido a los datos rimbombantes que se presumen o para poner en perspectiva prioridades y superficialidades, mentiras e inexactitudes.

Por supuesto, no estoy contemplando que gobernar tenga sentido solo como plataforma para brincar a otro puesto, o para promocionar a sus coequiperos, o para su lucimiento personal. Estoy creyendo que se gobierna para los otros. Pienso en que los gobernantes gobiernen primero para los que menos tienen, y que a partir de allí, se empuje el desarrollo del conjunto de la sociedad, y no como ahora, en que por goteo se pretende bajar la riqueza tan armónicamente distribuida entre unos pocos.

Sí, creo que estas formas no son corrientes en el país, y que ponerlas en práctica implican transformaciones tan radicales que no caben en el horizontes de las reformas que nada más cambian el disfraz del ogro y salpican discursos.
