“Boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, Bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders, and scorpions have been seized on the island”… 

“Something similar happened with the morals. Collectors [of fables – M.N.] were, mostly orators hired by kings and tyrants, who placed morals at the end of each fable: “Fraudulent man agrees [with] this fable” or

“State leaders are also more efficient if they lead the country to confusion.”

“We would have to say that, although the PNP is esopic, the PPD is Homeric and the PIP is tragic, more of Oedipus than of Antigone. While the popular make alliances with Agamemnon, Achilles and the gods, the pipiolos become tragic, marry each other, and take out their eyes.”

Puerto Rico in itself is the Aesop’s fable, starting with its name. 

Various wild animals, including the political ones: “boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders and scorpions have been seized on the island”…

All zis iz simply too much for zis poor little Island, (a former penal colony, which shows in everything), to handle. Too much stuff, and it feels more like a reality show mixed with tragicomedy.

When it is needed for their political (and any other, for them) survival, the Puerto Rico political elites are a mouse, and when it is needed, they are a bird.

And sometimes they even look as the eagle, man-spreading up in the skies, slowly circling in the deep railroad-navy blue of their sweet, childish, dependent, narcissistic dreams.

Aesop in Puerto Rico | The new day

Like the country, Aesop had to import animals for his fables. There on the Greek coast of his native Thrace – a beach as indebted as ours – fauna was scarce. In that archipelago it was very rare to find camels, monkeys, foxes, elephants, cobras, cats, or lions, the animals that most populate the great fabulist’s stories. The esopic experts suggest that most of the fables were Greek versions of Egyptian or Libyan stories, and that the cats that appear in the fables were actually domesticated weasels or that the fearsome lion used to be the denial of the donkey.

All this comes to the house because, in February, the House of Representatives sought to approve the Project-Resolution 251, which orders the commissions of Public Safety, Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs, to investigate and prohibit the trafficking of exotic animals in the island. The driving force behind the measure is the PNP legislator, Jose Aponte Hernandez, and his main concern is drug trafficking. In a press release, our “Pet-Detective” in the Chamber assures that “boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders and scorpions have been seized on the island” and that There is a very close relationship between these animals and drug trafficking. Our Dr.

The biggest temptation is to imagine a spider guarding a cargo of heroin. But beyond the esopic laughter of the spider government, what worries is the foolishness of the legislator when it comes to connecting the trafficking of animals with drugs. Why do not you also take care of the macaws that run away from the mansions on Glasgow Avenue? Where are the animals that suffer the contamination due to the deposition of ashes in Peñuelas? Who will protect the fish, the octopuses and the blessed conch of the Lenten gluttony?

It is sensible to think, then, that the PNP is esopic. It is not only that his party project is mounted in a democratic fable – the symbol of the Democratic Party is a donkey – but that every time they have a problem in front they flee towards Aesop: the animals are always the others. That is why they criminalize animals that do not fit into their fable factory and import animals from other latitudes at any cost. In their eagerness to win – they govern as if they were losing – mythologize even mosquitoes.

It is no coincidence that one of the greatest experts in the fables of Aesop, the English BE Perry, believes that the fame of the fables was related to the idea of rebaptizing forgotten gods. Hence the titles that some collectors of fables selected: “The asses that went to Zeus”. Something similar happened with the morals. Collectors were, mostly orators hired by kings and tyrants, who placed morals at the end of each fable: “Fraudulent man agrees this fable” or “State leaders are also more efficient if they lead the country to confusion.”

But if it comes to Greeks, we would have to say that, although the PNP is esopic, the PPD is Homeric and the PIP is tragic, more of Oedipus than of Antigone. While the popular make alliances with Agamemnon, Achilles and the gods, the pipiolos become tragic, marry each other, and take out their eyes. But the esopic mania of the PNP takes advantage because the fable is a malleable gender, without context, that adapts, changes animals, and invents new morals. So the PNP has survived the vilest scandals of corruption, privatization and labor precariousness reforms. There is no doubt, that the PNP overcomes with the lightness of a fable, just like that esopic bat that, wounded with wings on the ground and about to be eaten by a weasel, was saved when the bat told its prey that he It was not a bird, it was a mouse.
