The ruling Popular Party, the constitutional beneficiary of Francoism, obviously has no interest in opening things up, especially when corruption and clientelism constitute the stuff of its daily politics. Then there are the urban and provincial middling classes, more or less affluent constituencies for whom, irrespective of the past, an encounter with the real nature of Francoism would clash with their comfortable acceptance of the refurbished nationalist myth of his rule.

Regional nationalism complicates the picture somewhat here.

Here the authors avoid any analysis of broader historical change which might upset or complicate their vignettes of Franco as the bringer of order. The terror and torture in which the Franco state still dealt is airbrushed out of this biography, just as it has been from other conservative popular histories of Franco appearing in English. Theirs are new objectivities for populist times. If there are occasional reminders that not everyone sees Francoism as so harmless an Argentinian judge has demanded the extradition of high-ranking officials from the late dictatorship , the Popular Party resolutely ignores all calls from other countries urging it to deal with the unfinished business of the repression legal and economic redress or a census of the disappeared.

Media censorship is also present, even if no longer enshrined in law: documentaries dealing with the past — whether made inside or outside Spain, including the one I mentioned — have failed repeatedly to find any mainstream TV channel prepared to broadcast them. Francoism as a formal dictatorship is long gone, dispatched by the economic and political interests it served. But what lives on, aside from those same interests, is a particular sociological configuration of power which has never been truly challenged, above all not in its overweening sense of a quasi-hereditary right to rule.

Podemos is strategically intelligent and very media savvy, and its anti-corruption and anti-austerity message, plus its support for participatory democracy, sees it currently riding high in the polls.
