It is embarrassing how the events for and towards confront one another after the midway inauguration of the Felipe Ángeles International Airport. Politicization and polarization are reaching such vulgarities and surrealisms that they turn into more and more violent threats.
I increase this, as a result of public opinion shouldn’t be being objectively satisfied, however by annihilating and ridiculing from essentially the most hilarious responses or tweets. It is even perceived that amongst opponents they need such occasions, that they’ll set off some disaster to condemn the enemy with a lapidary “I told you so”.
An occasion of such relevance, such because the inauguration of a global airport, which has been presumed to be probably the greatest on this planet, ought to be applauded by all gods. However, it’s changing into a dividing line that predicts a fierce struggle between all of the “isms”, heading for a presidential succession that might transfer away from the democratic agenda and method pricey social conflicts.
Many tales have been distinguished between the hubbub and stridency on the inauguration of the AIFA. One of essentially the most important is that among the many personalities who have been on the rostrum of the optimistic messages, the brand new president of Mexico will most certainly come out, this element precipitated many to hunt to make the most of the catwalk to indicate off their finest smile.
There have been additionally contrasts that may stay framed within the pages of historic anecdotes, comparable to seeing the richest man in Mexico, Carlos Slim, and on the similar time, though very distant, a tlayuda vendor. Both had their August, nevertheless, what is clear, past the ambulatory sale of the beautiful Oaxacan gastronomic work, is the hurtful social inequality that’s accentuated in our nation.
It is clear that the airport didn’t open at 100% of its capability and operation, as would have been ideally suited, however it isn’t essentially an issue both, so long as progress is made in a well timed and environment friendly method, underneath all of the rules of transparency, which which and in line with a number of investigations contradict this delicate merchandise.
Since yesterday, the AIFA started a brand new stage that will likely be underneath incessant public and media scrutiny. While the opposition hopes that “something” fails daily, the president, his crew and his followers will exhibit the nice work because the image of transformation of the 4T. Traps which might be self-imposed and from which no winner will emerge. The wager was to inaugurate it with out being completed, which might soiled important components, such because the airport functioning on the peak of the circumstances. Instead, a debate primarily based on soiled struggle is anticipated.
In Germany, the Berlin-Brandenburg airport, Willy Brandt, was delayed in its inauguration, no extra and at least 9 years. Construction started in 2006 and its supply was initially deliberate for 2012. But the inspectors, previous to the celebration, detected 120,000 defects as a consequence of technical, development and corruption issues. Solving the errors considerably elevated the preliminary price range and referred to as into query the image of effectivity and status that the Teutonic nation has traditionally had. Finally, opened on October 31, 2020. In Mexico, it was determined to take action underneath the date established by the president, no matter its correct performance, which is able to deliver unexpected penalties.
It shouldn’t be the identical to indicate off an amazing development web site behind closed doorways, than one which works midway, with lower than 20 each day air operations and open to the general public. From now on, the place anybody may give an account of what occurs in that place that causes sighs and disappointments.
Also at stake is the definitive burial, of the reminiscence of Mexicans, of the ransacked Texcoco airport. If the AIFA doesn’t work properly, Texcoco will likely be within the unconscious of the Mexicans, the work that ought to have been.
Fortunately, the Benito Juárez International Airport maintains a full operation, which shouldn’t be uncared for, quite the opposite, it deserves an pressing funding in order that its operation and infrastructure enhance and dignify the necessary function of Mexico in Latin America and the world.
Meanwhile, the Felipe Ángeles International Airport ceased to be a golden alternative for Mexicans to reply in unison, to the hubbub of celebrating a piece that represented the pursuits and positioned the event of a nation.
