Transcending Overdiagnosis: Praxis as the Catalyst for Change in Latin America

© 2021 · Author: William Castaño-Bedoya

Reflections on the Political, Economic, and Social Challenges of the Region and the Necessity of Effective Action.

In a world where diagnoses are abundant but solutions are scarce, Latin America confronts political, economic, and social challenges that have perpetuated a cycle of polarization and stagnation. In this discourse, I delve into the issue of “overdiagnosis” within our nations and advocate for genuine praxis to drive significant change in the region.

Discussions about Latin America’s dire reality voice a legitimate outcry within society. Unfortunately, this outcry often remains just that—an outcry that fails to translate into concrete actions. The overdiagnosis of each nation’s problems is evident, yet the actual praxis, the effective implementation of solutions, remains elusive. It appears that the world is ensnared in a web of political power where personal interests prevail over the common good. Global politics is becoming too toxic for humanity.

Throughout Latin America, socially polarized factions have governed, whether on the right or the left end of the spectrum. Presently, a leaning towards the left prevails in much of the region. However, current radicalizations do not govern with the intention of upholding the center of political thought or benefiting the people; rather, they seek to cling to power. This reality distorts the true purpose of politics and its capacity to drive meaningful change. The day when centrism is supported by the extremes will mark the beginning of praxis leading the path to success.

But what does genuine praxis truly mean for the region? Authentic praxis in Latin America will cyclically and symbiotically preserve wealth without diluting or plundering it. It will enable the middle class to ascend daily and allow the lower classes to ascend towards the middle class on their path to economic consolidation. This authentic praxis will fundamentally combat the material poverty that afflicts the majority of humans on the continent.

Breaking free from the endless cycle of diagnoses is pivotal, shifting our focus towards concrete actions. A vision of change is required—one that acknowledges that overdiagnosis is a legalistic exercise and comprehends the essence of praxis as a change agent. Governments should cultivate centrist ideas to ensure the pacification of extremes, transcending personal interests for the collective benefit. Only through genuine praxis can we surmount the barriers that hinder development and construct a prosperous, just, and equitable Latin America.

Conclusion: The overdiagnosis of Latin American countries has been a constant throughout history. However, to effect real change, transitioning from diagnoses to praxis is essential—a sustained and effective action that overcomes divisions and works towards the well-being of all inhabitants of the region. It is time for politics in Latin America to focus on genuine social, economic, and spiritual progress, propelling an authentic praxis towards a promising future.
