La política en México es un caso raro por misteriosas razones. Me referiré a uno solo de sus rasgos (no sé si se reproducen en otras partes). Le llamé la generación espontánea. Lo confirmo ahora que empezaron las campañas políticas en mi estado.

Es fácil de explicar: apenas erigirse candidata o candidato le afloran las virtudes más extraordinarias y exquisitas. A veces me pregunto: ¿y cómo carajos no lo habíamos hecho gobernador, presidente o diputada? En delirio he llegado a pensar, deslumbrado por las cualidades sobrenaturales: ¿y si nos convertimos en monarquía para tenerlo con nosotros siempre?

Tengo muchas hipótesis para explicarme esta versión tropical del subdesarrollo democrático y ciudadano. (Una especie neopospretérita del rey desnudo, el cuento de Hans Christian Andersen). Ninguna es edificante.

A esa generación espontánea, que refleja nuestra subnormalidad política, la refuerzan y martillan medios aflojerados, veleidosos, banales, sensacionalistas, poco exigentes, que a su vez, exhiben deficiencias en las productos formativos de las escuelas de periodismo.

Cuando Giovanni Sartori escribió Homo videns. La sociedad teledirigida, advertía que en la sociedad a que arribábamos la muerte de una gallina aplastada por la pared se convertiría en noticia. Así estamos ahora, atestiguando, cual súbditos, la danza gozosa de noticias insulsas, abundantes pero escasas de poder explicativo.
