FARC guerrilla de ColombiaIt is inconceivable and inefficient to expect that all human beings share the same vision or political philosophy. The differences generally enriches society and allows, in theory, to reach a solution that overcomes . The premise is what to do when the person next to us did not share my thoughts. Civilized people may use new arguments to try to reason or even reconsider their own beliefs. Other pseudo humans believe that through extortion, violence and disposal can "convince" your opinion is the best for the common good.

FARC guerrilla de Colombia historia
Origins : The FARC is the oldest and largest guerrilla group in Latin America. Founded after the offensive , "to reaffirm the authority of the National Front ," the Colombian army conducted in 1964 against the "Republic of Marquetalia " one of the 60 autonomous communities created by radical communist armed groups in late the time of the violence that followed the Bogotazo in 1948. During its early years , the FARC had an exclusively rural character and limited to relatively sporadic actions in small areas of influence, still prioritizing the peasant self-defense component . The Colombian government tried several military to end the guerrilla group operating , which ultimately failed to end

Currently the government of the day working incisamente both diplomatically and militarily to reduce the forces of FARC and achieve peace . For the sake of our fellow Colombians and peace in general throughout Latin America , hopefully so be it.
