Colombia, my homeland, stands as one of the world’s most violent countries, marred by the scars of political and economic interests. Amidst this turmoil, South America appears as a fertile ground for the proliferation of neo-colonialism.

The state and foreign powers view Colombians not as citizens but as consumers of conflict. For those profiting from the sale of weapons, the logic is simple: where there’s demand, create a market. Israel, among others, engages in such transactions, disguising them as benevolent diplomacy while simultaneously training paramilitary forces in brutal tactics.

This isn’t hypocrisy; it’s the stark reality of “good” business. The double standard persists, evident to those who witness how death and suffering are commodified for profit. In this grim landscape, the true cost of violence is laid bare, exposing the moral bankruptcy of those who exploit human suffering for financial gain.
