32 frozen, fragile years in anticipation of a democratic social system. An unfulfilled void that persists, despite expectations, efforts, the democratization of life, and as time passes, everything remains behind. Our country has experienced difficult years, awaiting a better democratic life. Since the inauguration of pluralism, with all the enthusiasm of citizens, even those idealists who truly believed that with the democratic order, a more prosperous, free life would be established, and citizens would be more equal in society, before the law, justice, and the like. A long and arduous journey that we otherwise call social transition, a transition that continues even today, and is followed by the echo of a not-so-distant past. Our people, our citizens, continue to remember the past because from this present, they see nothing, not even democracy and democratic values. They expected democracy, which replaced the one-minded system, to bring us more freedom, equality, justice, stability, well-being, social equality, employment, quality education, and healthcare, but from this, nothing. In its most hostile form, democracy through political parties brought us scandals, crimes, corruption, seizures, thefts, abuses, murders, imprisonments, loud revolutions, conflicts, oligarchy, civic and political impunity, sale of social property, emigration of workers, impoverishment, depopulation, youth emigration, and similar. So, we are in endless anticipation of democracy because we are far from it.
