[OP-ED]: America’s parliamentary disaster

 04/07/2017 - 12:29
For decades, the United States governed itself by a system that favored centrist consensus -- not always wise, to be sure -- whereas our invisible parliamentary system does just the opposite. It empowers the fringes and weakens the center. True, most of our major social and political conflicts have independent origins. But parliamentary politics is making them worse.
English

America’s Congress is quietly becoming a European-style parliament -- and the transformation isn’t for the good. Congress is fanning, not defusing, conflict.

The Hispanic immigrant community has played a fundamental role in the growth of the city in the last decade. In the streets it is more and more common to hear conversations held in Spanish. However, it seems that this important trend is not reflected in universities. Why? A general crisis in the study of the humanities would be the answer. AL DÍA News spoke with professors from three of the most prominent universities in the city.

English

On April 1959, Fidel Castro arrived in Washington for an 11 day tour around the US. In the airport, before meeting Richard Nixon, he was welcomed by more than 1500 fans. In every city, he was treated like a celebrity.

One year later, he had become the opposite of an icon. He had ordered the nationalisation of American companies in the island, he restricted free trade, he made friends with the USSR. In the US, he was not a celebrity anymore.
