Abstract

Los espanoles se refieren a su patria como "la quimera espanola". Una quimera mitologica se compone de miembros desemejantes. Expresado cientificamente, es un organismo de dos a mas tejidos genericamente distintos el uno del otro, de varios generos biologicos. No obstante, algunos de estos mismos espanoles se enorgullecen de ser castizos, o sea, de raza pura, sin mestizaje. Hay patriotas que insisten en que lo verdadero espanol no tiene influencia ajena, mientras que otros creen que a lo espanol le faltan cambios y modificaciones. Esta division entre "las dos Espanas", la conservadora y la liberal, ha sido la causa de una serie dee problemeas que ha atormentado a Espana desde hace mucho, y que continuara hasta que sus propios hijos convengan en la definicion del espanolismo.

The Spaniards refer to their homeland as "the Spanish chimera". A mythological chimera is composed of unlike members. Expressed scientifically, it is an organism of two to more tissues generically different from each other, from several biological genders. However, some of these same Spaniards pride themselves on being pure, that is, of pure race, without miscegenation. There are patriots who insist that the true Spanish has no influence from others, while others believe that Spanish is lacking in changes and modifications. This division between "the two Hispanics", the conservative and the liberal, has been the cause of a series of problems that has plagued Spain for a long time, and that will continue until their own children agree on the definition of Spanishism.
