The notion of synarchy derives from the Greek word synarchía, which can be translated as “Joint power”. The Royal Spanish Academy (RAE), in his dictionary, mentions as the first meaning of the term the government formed by different princes that the administration of the different sectors of the State are distributed.
The concept, however, is often used to name the influence that certain people, companies or organizations have in the economic and political management of a nation. The synarchy, in this sense, is made up of powerful corporations and individuals that condition the actions of the rulers elected by the people.
It is often said that the synarchy is the hidden power or the power in the shadows. The population, for example, can vote in democratic elections and elect a president. This president is the representative of the inhabitants and who is empowered to make important decisions for the administration of public affairs. However, if a synarchy influences the scope of its measuresIn reality, the president cannot exercise real power, with which someone, or an entity, governs that was not popularly voted.
Synarchy is understood as a set of invisible or clandestine powers that affect areas such as economy, politics, religion and culture. It can be affirmed that the main financial moguls, to cite one case, have a synergistic behavior.
In Mexico, meanwhile, the National Synarchist Union drove the movement known as synarchism at the end of the decade 1930. Synarchism defined itself as nationalist, Catholic, and anti-communist.
