Latin America and its motherland live as two illustrious unknown, writes Jordi Soler in the new Spaniards, whose axis is that we see an invasion of immigrants when in reality they are the new reality of Spain. And he comes to ask to who you think lead to the King of Spain at a Latin American Summit to that continent whose imaginary lives disrupted by the ghosts of the colony? Starts with a quotation by Borges Nations are nothing more than acts of faith and, for more reason that has Borges, says, it seems that the world and its Nations go in the opposite direction, and every day we have episodes that confirm it, since the walls that divided a nation from another, and step reconcentran them, until the nationalistic fuss of people who insists on thinking that where square meterby pure chance, it was born, it is better, and more beautiful, than square meter where others were born. The Act of faith which says Borges is crucial, because those who have faith simply believes without any intervening too neither observation nor the reason and this, in a country like Spain which begins to face the massive immigration of people with various nationalities, is especially delicate. The author cites j. M. Coetzee, that mysterious and dazzling writer like few others, in his book in diary of a bad year.
Coetzee explained his relationship with the square meter of land in South Africa, where he was born: considered her my city not only because he had been born in it, but because he knew his story with enough depth to view his past in palimpsest below its present. However, that today they roam the streets in search of action is your city for bands of young black men and I am the outsider. Palimpsest is the handwritten parchment whose first writing has been erased to write to him again.
