Apparently, the Tiririca saga has not ended. The story went from an illiterate citizen who was elected to Congress to now being a possibly literate citizen being elected to Congress. One way to look at it is via the threshold between being worthy of elected office and not being worthy and the way this is being measured in this particular case is on the basis of literacy, or lack thereof. The inevitable conclusion, in its simplest form, is that being able to read is equal to belonging to the branch of government that is charged with such powers as making laws. This kind of thinking naturally leads to the question of who should be entrusted with the making of legislation, be it a politician or someone ‘of the people’.
