Context: E-mail talking about the situation of the archives in peripheral countries.
Potential Relevance For The Future: A picture of this moment.
Description: An email from an specialist in archives about a new law that allows the government to erase or destroy the documents from the legislative power, based on arbitrary aspects to “purify” the archives.
Translation: …and the difference related to the state issues is between a strong state, thought from Foucault, and unsteady structures from peripheral countries like ours, where we think about institutions that work on and for a democracy to come… if we think about the actual government we´d better took everything out of our country before it disappears.
