Society that surrounds Teodulo Lopez Melendez initiatives appear on countless occasions of spontaneously and from unexpected sources. They are crystalline ones, more, and others somewhat murky. A society alerts the difference and in an advanced maturity manages to do it automatically or instant. I said, talking politics, that the air in the province has no the Caracas air pollution, one full of pollution itself of a Valley, one where from the colony are exercised at odds with ethical practices. I don’t want to say that the province is an angelic website where there are no trapisondas or where the intrigue does not fly. What I mean is that inside is deposited most of national intelligence and a purity of mind visible without much effort.
That is why I usually repeated that when the province wake up we will witness a possibility until now unpublished of redemption of the Venezuelan social fabric. Much of that intelligence or has no where express themselves or simply remains silent affected by typical centralism that has characterized this country where anything not coming from Caracas seems to be considered. From specialists in various areas of science to writers of high flight, from conscious entrepreneurs to intellectual complexes, from social activists to exceptional columnists of the press, our province is made of that and more. Centres of study of the interior appear minimized when it comes to spearhead what the bureaucratised Caracas Center maneuvers and negotiations – seems unable to undertake or to undertake it shows the seams of harmful habits. My good friend Guillermo Moron accustomed to repeat it, Caracas is not the country, and therefore announces that constantly traveling inside to meet with teachers in school. Each time you so feel you recharged. The province, term that has been used as a synonym for disability, is considered in these Latin American countries a kind of distant territory.
THE SOCIAL as construction collective memory of the present individual memory is not just personal:… the memories that make up our identity and provide context for every thought and action not only are our own, but we also learn them, we take and we inherited in part from common stocks, built, sustained and transmitted by families, communities and cultures to which we belong… (Foreword by r. i. Moore to FENTRESS, j. and WICKHAM, ch. (2003): social memory.) Madrid: Catedra, p.

With these words, Arias Navarro marks a before and an afterwards in the memory of all Spaniards, a line from which the democratisation process machine gear unstoppable until reaching the power very differently to how had done 40 years earlier machine military hoist. The rapid and dizzying events of all upcoming events, from here, creates a historical horizon on social memory, in a way that what we are now, in almost its entirety is built on foundations of experiences and memories of the past 30 years, though some to endeavor to revive outdated and grotesque ghosts before Franco’s death. The way in which we interpret social structures, phenomena that develop around us, our representations of the world or our guidelines cannot, therefore be understood nor separated from the historical moment in which have emerged and have been constituted, as well as nor be separated from different historical processes that give rise to his appearance. The historical dimension involves consideration of the social reality as a process. Any social phenomenon has a temporality and change over time. You can not be analyzed as a finished product. If you do so, we would be regardless of their Constitution process, omitting the course of its development, which has been to be treated a certain way in a particular historical moment. We can not recover an unaltered flow past temporary, and must admit that the past is interpreted and re-signifies changing according to the present.
