The times we live in are characterized by two main contradictions. The first is between aspirations towards “development” (and the defense of those who live in it) and the ecological and political infeasibility of such “development” for the majority of the population that subsidize it; second is the impossibility of integrating citizenship, cultural diversity, and equity in a way that does not imply uniformity and through a diversity that is not discriminatory (Sánchez, 2014). Dispossession and confrontation among groups due to such contradictions causes those that exercise power to act through further dispossession, scorn, and the logic of war.
