BLACHA, Luis Ernesto. State controller and the "social control": The case of the argentine patriot league (1930-1943). Rev. Pilquen [online]. 2011, n.14, pp. 00-00. ISSN 1851-3123.
The coup d'état of September 1930 marks a break in the evolution of psycho and sociogenesis processes aimed at keeping a modern and democratic political activity in Argentina. It reverses the ruling-ruled relationship, strengthening state intervention in society to the weakening of the formal spaces of the "political." The Argentine PatriotLeague, founded in 1919 under the motto "Order and Fatherland" is a parastatal institution that acts as a channel of prosecution of the ruling-ruled relationship. It also allows the selection and cooptation of new members to the political class. It is a channel of diffusion of new interventionist ideas from the ruling minority to the rest of society. The proposed objective is to characterize and interpret, from a political sociology, similarities and differences between the work of the Argentine Patriotic League and the measures taken by the State Auditor that separately deserve , the attention of the historiography. The new social actions between ruling-ruled and the original contexts where they occur, allow the emergence of new "social technologies" being implemented from the State and from this nationalist institution that precede and go beyond the institutional breakdown of 1930.
