ABSTRACT
This article is an analysis of the last Argentinean dictatorship discourse and its articulation through the instances of silence and memory. To elucidate them, we deal with the technologies of violence and its discursive consequences: the exhaustion of the collective ability to tell stories, the denial of collective aberration and the perversion of language. From there, we study the discursive axes through which the fiction of the Process was built on: messianism, manichaeism and organicism. Finally we evaluate the development of new symbolic discourses in response to dogmatism, the creation of partial, fragmented and provisional fictions that challenged the official story.
