Coming up: The discussion on drug-trafficking

The newspaper from Lima "El Comercio", on February 12, 1998, outlined a statement made by the famous US economist Milton Friedman, entitled "Drugs, an unfair war":

"Our drug policy has led to thousands of deaths and enormous loss of wealth in countries like Colombia, Peru and Mexico (...) All because we cannot enforce our laws at home. If we did, there would be no market for imported drugs. (...) The foreign countries would not have to suffer the loss of sovereignty (...) Can any policy be moral if it leads to widespread corruption, imprisons so many, has so racist an effect, destroys our inner cities, wreaks havoc on misguided and vulnerable individuals and brings death and destruction to foreign countries?"

When greeting the Colombian youth present in this scenario, the FARC-People's Army, rather than exalting the sum of qualities that encloses the human soul in this stage of life, would like to highlight the special spiritual situation of the rising generation, characterized by the formation of ethical values ??that will guide your future behavior.

The ability to pervert the truth

The ideological domination, taking possession of millions of people to act in compliance with the interests of the masters, acquires vital importance for the ruling classes at this moment. Showing as true what is not and turn the ones who oppose them into monsters, becomes vital for them in order to perpetuate their profits.

The true peacemakers

The question about who is really tired of the peace process moves towards really important reflections. One of them takes us to the beginning of the talks between the national government and the FARC-EP. Why did the process start in the first place? After eight years of war practiced by Uribe, what made Santos change course?

UNRAVELLING IDEAS (I)

Who is tired of the peace process?
Around the peace process which is currently taking place in Havana, all sorts of speculations are woven. Starting from President Santos and his leader at the peace talks, Humberto de la Calle, the allegations against the FARC are released and repeated in an irresponsible and biased way by different spokesmen of the Establishment and commentators, who are well-paid by the mainstream media.

To Maria Jimena Duzan

Written by

On several occasions you said you were interested in an exchange of letters with me. Now, after a discharge, much less friendly than when you valued my style, you return to the fray, and with two constraints, that I should be productive and I shouldn't sow discord.

Addendum required

Some media, surely inspired on sensationalism, have speculated about a supposed threat of mine regarding a violation of the confidentiality agreed on in the General Agreement for the termination of the conflict.

So much rhetoric is harmful, Santos

Written by

President Santos responded calculating every word when he referred to the offer of cooperation made by President Mujica in New York. In spite of expressing his gratitude for the proposal to use the Uruguayan territory as a possible site for the peace talks, the Colombian president chose not to advance anything on dialogues with the guerrilla of the ELN. In these situations you have to be very cautious. Decisions are made by mutual agreement, he said.

Elementary Reflections on Santos' project

Written by

The recent presentation of a bill to reform the law, allowing a referendum to coincide with the normal date of another public electoral process, is not such a clear fact as the national government tries to present it.

What Santos did not want

Written by

A country which he doesn't like, because it doesn't look like the London he dreams of, is on the streets, demanding changes, facing the authorities, calling for different policies

President Santos never misses an opportunity to manipulate. After all, he's a business man from the world of the big media, used to distort and belittle opposing points of view. He didn't scruple to assert before the military High Command, that the commander of the FARC-EP had written an article complaining about the fact he was considered a high-value target. That's his problem. On this side, we never resort to the distortion of what was said by the President, we prefer to interpret his words in their exact meaning.
