Militarism was born in America from 1810, we speak of Militarism in its known form of Ibero-American type, but there is no doubt that the powerful pre-Hispanic civilizations of indigenous aborigine type, also had their castes of military warriors.
The modern Militarism was inherited from Spain, from Spain we inherited the Military Oligarchic systems.
THE MILITARY LIBERATORS WERE VENERATED BY THEIR PEOPLES AS THE TRUE PARENTS OF THE NATIONS, AND THEIR SUCCESSORS WERE CONSIDERED AS THE NATURAL AND LEGITIMATE HEIRS OF THE LIBERATORS. THUS FORMING A MILITARY CASTE. A SORT OF NEW NOBILITY, REPUBLICAN IN NAME, MONARCHICAL MILITARIST IN FACT.
If we analyze history, we will see that the military begins by being liberal and ends up being conservative, starts liberating and then wants to conserve power.
When the so-called Liberals form a cyst in power, the so-called Conservatives resort to arms to overthrow them, and vice versa.
For many years politics has been made with weapons, and therefore we consider that politicians and military leaders are the same person.
The Ibero-American Militarism is a hundred percent nationalist, every military leader always presents himself as provisional to save his country from some political crisis.
There is no doubt that Militarism experienced a radical change in the period from 1918 to 1955. The Russian Revolution and Fascism really changed the nature of Militarism in Latin America.
The Russian Revolution and Fascism decisively influenced Latin American Militarism.
If we carefully examine the Latin American Dictatorships and their military castes, we can see that there is in these dictatorships and in those castes, certain Fascist, and even Hitlerian, inspiration.
In all the peoples of America there are now attempts of reform, and shouts of Rebellion of Communist type, that is undeniable.
The Armies, the militia, the Military leaders now appear as elements that want to maintain order, maintain the STATIC state of LATIN AMERICA.
Every time the people rise up against the government, the military leaders appear.
Every time a legitimately constituted government tries to make a reform either on the left or right, or trade union, the army intervenes with some military coup, supposedly to safeguard order.
We consider that the army is necessary to defend the national territory, or to save a people in full state of ANARCHY AND VIOLENCE, we believe that the army has been made to defend the Peoples threatened by barbarism, but not to transform the Society, or to make Political Doctrine.
One of the most serious crimes of the army, is to conceive the war against their own people to save certain political interests, the people trust in the army and the army defrauds the people when it is put at the service of political interests.
When a whole country has risen up against a government, it is a clear indication that the latter does not know how to govern, in this case the army must be in favour of the people.
It is stupid, the position of an army that assassinates the people for defending a government incapable of governing wisely.
We are not in favour of the violence of the Individual and the masses, but we consider, with all respect, that the army has been created to defend the people, and not to assassinate them.
Sometimes the Army establishes Military Dictators, when that happens, the Army besides becoming a Privileged, untouchable, arrogant caste, also takes over an entire country.
The LATIN AMERICAN DICTATOR is Eclectic, takes something from Fascism, something from Nazism, something from Communism and something from Patriotic History, a little bit from everything.
The Brake of the Dictator is the Army that supports him, it is good to know that the army is a sum of Individuals, each Individual, each Soldier, each “I”, has its traditions, prejudices, habits, customs, etc.., etc., etc.
The “I” never wants to die, and defends all its values at all costs.
When the Military Dictator tries to change all those values, the army inevitably abandons him, then the Dictator falls like a fulminated tower.
We condemn Military Dictatorship.
We condemn the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.
We condemn the Civil Dictatorship.
We condemn the Aristocratic Dictatorship.
We believe that the ARMY should be at the service of the people.
We believe that the Army should not be at the service of any Totalitarian system, be it of the extreme right or the extreme left.
We believe that the Army must be absolutely Democratic.
The people love the army, they trust the army and it is stupid for the army to turn its arms against the people.
