    Stockholm, 1997. "Escribí este trabajo como una contribución al debate en la Jornada de Reflexión sobre Colombia, que tuvo lugar en Estocolmo el día 26 de abril pasado. Yo esperaba que estas líneas estimularan una discusión abierta, franca, fraternal y constructiva. Por desgracia no fue así. Mis opiniones fueron recibidas con tergiversaciones, provocaciones de índole personal y amenazas veladas. Esto me obliga a publicar ahora mi ensayo, agregándole notas aclaratorias (entre paréntesis) para responder a quienes, incapaces de debatir con argumentos, han recurrido a la mentira y a la agresión." He wrote three more articles after this one.
