3rd of June_Dialogue

About the Maritime Nation that we are …

Or we’re not … or do we want to and we don’t know Already … or don’t want to Ever Be


We are a maritime nation, intrinsically, that ignores itself as such, as advocates Gonçalo Magellan Collaço, or we are a nation without this right marine nature as intrinsic defends Armando Marques Guedes? …

Is this lack of self-awareness that leads to particularly foreigners to recognise in us that being intrinsically I can’t recognize already shipping in us, as both have sharp, highlighted and illustrated George d’Almeida, or is the absence of such a maritime character who explains the impaired concentration and development of a truly unique project, striking and only one to enforce the world as the maritime nation we don’t know if we’re already , as it has proposed Tiago Pitta and Cunha?

And if the right is what establishes and defines the relationships of man with the world and men with each other, says Francisco Espregueira Mendes about this right and the alleged a maritime character of Portugal?

A dialogue in search, anyway, of the maritime nation that we are, or are not, or do we want to and we don’t know already.
