Once again we are shocked by the horror of war. However, what the media show us is not designed to teach us what is happening, but to provoke immediate emotional reactions, such as compassion, fear, anger and hatred.

A state of emergency criticized by prestigious constitutional experts and justices but defended to the hilt by the government and de facto by the main non-opposition party...
