In this history of human adventure, one of Latin America's most distinguished writers illuminates movements of ideas and society across centuries by recalling the lives of artists, writers, gods and visionaries-- from the Garden of Eden to 21st-century New York.
Eduardo Galeano is the author of the Memory of Fire Trilogy, Open Veins of Latin America, Soccer in Sun and Shadow, and many other works. Born in Montevideo, in 1940, Galeano lived in exile in Argentina and Spain for many years before returning to Uruguay.
His work has inspired popular and classical music composers from all over the world. He was the recipient of the first Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom. He has just been awarded "The Outstanding Citizen of the South," a new prize awarded by the Common Market of the South.
¡Qué lástima que su mente está programada de tal manera! Él no es un hombre ignorante, de ninguna manera, sólo sabe muchas cosas que no son ciertas. Ha creado su propia realidad con retazos de engaño. Todos han recibido fragmentos de lo que ne es la verdad desde joven, y debemos saber rechazarlos. Sólo por medio de la gracia de Dios por Jesucristo podamos hacerlo.
What a shame that his mind is programmed in such a manner. He is not an ignorant man by any means. He only knows many things that are not true. He has created his own reality from bits and pieces of deception. All have received fragments of that which is not the truth since our youth and we must know how to reject them. Only by the grace of God through Jesus Christ may we be able to do this.
Galeano is a Negacionist and a defender of dictators like Castro and Chávez. His edulcorated speeches are nothing but cheap propaganda and filofascism in the form of the defense of Statist Obesity. It is really sad to see people fall into his victimism ideology that has Latin America submerged into poverty.
Eduardo Galeano has simply ignited my heart. Much gratitude to fora.tv for sharing this video to all those who have stumbled upon such a powerful being who reminds each and everyone of us as being a part of this beautiful life and its many histories.
