Condoms are not of sufficient strength to guarantee that they will not break. A good comparative experiment shows that 60% of condoms do not maintain global standards of safety. It was assured by an investigation conducted in the program “Strengthening consumer organizations of Latin America and the Caribbean in the process of normalization”, released by Consumers International and reaffirmed by the International Research and Testing in UK and the Consumers Union of United States group.

The Spanish singer, Russian Red, who has the face of a Virgin of Murillo, a special voice and usually act accompanied by her guitar and sing in English; has just come out as “a right-winger.” She sings for many years, but now, those people who praised her undoubted artistic merits, criticize her just because she is a “right-winger.” Read the rest of this entry »
(Although it seems that after the last elections the Left has suffered a serious setback, it also seems that has not failed in its approaches.)
I have already said before that what really matters is not so much the economic progress of Spain, but the change of mentality in the majority of people, until achieve a complete secularization of life, customs and institutions. It will be ambivalent to be left-winger or right-winger because at the bottom everybody will think the same on fundamental topics.
How do they do? Applying to the letter the principles of the founder of the Italian Communist Party, Antonio Gramsci, who said: We must create a new specific revolutionary strategy to achieve the victory of the left in Western Europe and for this, we must conquer ideologically intellectuals especially through school, it must replace the church.
Intellectuals are considered the most effective disseminators of ideas. The university, teaching, education, art and the media should be made from the left and bearers of changing values in society. It is about to develop a new “common sense” rootless from the Christian tradition.
I mean any argument that deny the existence of God, will be described as “modern”, “progressive” and “democratic”; whereas, the arguments that lead to believe in God and eternal life will be accused of “old”, “reactionary” and “fascists.”
Thus the youth is educated in many public schools and the results are already being noticed. The teaching of religion was suppressed and was replaced by the subject of “Education for Citizenship” that is a set of aberrations. The disobedience and disrespect to the parents, the masturbation and the incitement to sexual intercourse are incited. For this, condoms are distributed in an indiscriminate way and the parties of the weekend, the alcohol and the mockery of all kinds of religion or belief, etc. are incited.
All this, together with the proliferation of magazines and pornographic films, incite constantly to the young people to seek the pleasure in a selfishly and indiscriminate way. The result: many of these young people are as anesthetized and their only aspiration is to work little, earn as much money as possible and have fun.
Then it is time to manipulate these people, drawing them to organize gathering or demonstrations that will be considered product of the popular indignation. And this will be transformed easily into a powerful pressure group led by the left.
There are a lot of circumstances given and still giving around terrorist acts we are suffering lately in Europe, including in such circumstances the warped and sectarian reaction from a great part of the left wing, above all in Spain, and about the feeling of guilt they have been able to instill in European society, but I shall confine myself to two of them.

Today the forms of political and social totalitarianism are shown with camouflage clothing. During the election campaigns is common to make proposals and then they aren’t fulfilled. (I remember a cartoon, a politician who made a proposal in front of his audience, saying the following measure: “create 30.000 seats for childhood education”, at the same time a voice from behind the curtain said “and tell them, also a ham”.

There are words that touch us; abortion is certainly one of them. According to Diccionario de la Lengua Española (Official Dictionary of Spain), abortion is the interruption of pregnancy due to spontaneous or induced causes. The first ones are part of the natural dynamics of the human being and there is little we can do to prevent them. The second ones cause mixed reactions and no one can be indifferent to this. Even for the same concept we look for words that reduce the actual or emotional burden that this word causes, I mean the determination to use the term “voluntary interruption of pregnancy.”
“It is difficult to see how democracy, which is based on the principle of the will of the majority of the citizens, establishes the validity of principles and moral values, without being supported by the convictions of the majority, and without entering or imposing a dogmatism that is essentially strange to democracy as a form of government” (Card. Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict XVI).
