BARRERA PARRILLA, Beatriz  and  NAVARRO GARCIA, Jesús Raúl. The strategy of destabilization in Venezuela: propaganda and controversy in the counterinsurgency. Cadiz constitutionalism to consolidate Republican, 1810-1828. memorias [online]. 2010, n.13, pp.110-172. ISSN 1794-8886.

The study of the ideological trajectory of the doctor, bureaucrat and Venezuelan writer Jose Domingo Diaz lets enter the world of propaganda and journalism at the time the insurgent. His vision "realistic" and the emerging pro-Spanish republican process gives us the contrast needed to see any prospects that breaks hard on the Republican historiography, marked above all by the cult of the Founding Fathers. A detailed study like the one offered in this paper allows the evaluation into perspective the contribution of these ideologues monarchists to a better understanding of the processes insurgents, the connections between propaganda, espionage and war, the mechanisms that were within reach of one and others to gain public support, to manipulate events and opinions. Out of every political stripe, the use of sources of propaganda "realistic" offers a wonderful opportunity to renew the political and ideological studies of the first third of the nineteenth century in much of Latin American countries, recovering from oblivion many intellectuals realistic totally ignored on both sides of the Atlantic.

Keywords : Venezuela; propaganda; independence; José Domingo Díaz.
