Converses a la documenta: L’anarquisme a Catalunya: Oblit d’una història / història d’un oblit (per Toni Estradé)

Durant els últims anys, s’ha anat escampant una visió crítica del règim polític i social sorgit del postfranquisme. Un dels retrets que s’han formulat a l’etapa històrica compresa entre la mort del dictador i l’esclat de la darrera crisi socioeconòmica del 2008 és que va ser un període en el qual, des dels sectors dominants que conformen la opinió pública (dirigents i partits polítics principals, grans mitjans de comunicació, sistema general d’ensenyament, etc.), es va fomentar l’oblit d’aquells elements del passat que podien posar en qüestió el relat mític de la Transició. Darrerament, per contra, se’ns reitera que vivim un boomespectacular de la memòria, i que aquelles coses amagades comencen a sortir, amb força, a la llum.

Potser sí. Però, en qualsevol cas, aquí volem posar de relleu que hi ha aspectes essencials del nostre passat col·lectiu que en temps de records continuen preterits, que quan suposadament “es parla de tot” segueixen sent silenciats. O que quan s’arriben a esmentar és només per presentar-ne una imatge tan parcial com distorsionada. I en aquesta des-consideració (en sentit literal) hi intervenen no tan sols els “sospitosos habituals” abans esmentats (forces parlamentàries hegemòniques fins ara, diaris i televisions de més abast…) sinó alguns dels que més insisteixen a presentar-se avui en tant que abanderats de la “memòria històrica”: la major part del sindicats anomenats “de classe”, departaments universitaris d’història i de ciències socials, revistes d’assaig i de difusió en aquests mateixos àmbits, opcions sorgides de la que es designa com a “nova política”…

El cas del moviment obrer d’inspiració anarquista és paradigmàtic en aquest sentit. D’una importància cabdal durant més de tres quarts de segle al nostre país, amb uns nivells d’afiliació que per moments deixen en ridícul l’actual nombre de socis del Barça (425.000 cotitzants a la CNT catalana l’any 1919, quan el total d’habitants del territori ben just superava els dos milions), capaç de mantenir durant dècades un diari redactat íntegrament per obrers i amb una circulació de desenes de milers d’exemplars cada dia, organitzat de baix a dalt amb un règim federal assembleari on els càrrecs eren rotatius i sense remuneració, articulat com una força sociocultural que, mitjançant ateneus, biblioteques, escoles, etc., educava i capacitava la gent de classe treballadora, amb un estol de militants destacats que en qualsevol altre país serien figures llegendàries… malgrat tots aquests (i molts altres!) elements d’interès innegable, no només per a les persones que viuen a Catalunya sinó per a la història social del continent europeu i de tot el món, malgrat l’actualitat i rellevància de bastants dels seus plantejaments i propostes, el moviment llibertari català continua sent, ara i aquí, un gran desconegut per a la immensa majoria.

Quins són els factors que poden ajudar-nos a entendre la persistent negligència de què ha estat objecte un ingredient tan remarcable del nostre patrimoni comú? Per quin enfilall de circumstàncies, com diria Max Weber, s’explica que en sapiguem molt poques coses? Des d’una perspectiva que gosem qualificar de “sociologia del desconeixement”, en aquesta sessió de debat mirarem de formular unes quantes preguntes com aquestes i d’avançar algunes temptatives de resposta.

  1. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  2. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  3. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  4. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  5. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  7. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  9. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  11. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  16. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
