Eduardo Galeano is a Uruguayan author and historian. The author himself denies that he is a historian: “I'm a writer obsessed with remembering, with remembering the past of America above all and above all that of Latin America, intimate land condemned to amnesia.”
Perhaps one day the world, our world, won't be upside down, and then any newborn human being will be welcome. Saying, ‘Welcome. Come. Come in. Enter. The entire earth will be your kingdom. Your legs will be your passport, valid forever.'
