La democracia es esencialmente antiautoritaria, es decir, no solo exige el derecho sino que impone la responsabilidad de pensar por nosotros mismos.

Europe's island that swaps nationalities

11 meses 2 días antes - 11 meses 2 días antes #1 por Editor
Pheasant Island, located between France and Spain, bizarrely changes countries twice a year

Sheltered in the borderlands between Hendaye, France, and Irun, Spain, on the Bidasoa river flowing to the Bay of Biscay, the perplexing island is presided over by each nation for six months in turn and is a historical record of the rivalry between the countries.

Border irregularities are found throughout Europe – and the world – but a 200m-long island that swaps countries biannually is unfathomably odd. And few, curiously, know much about Pheasant Island at all.
