"The first victim of a war is truth," from this phrase of Hiram Johnson starts an episode dedicated to understand the meaning of this word. Professor of the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Antioquia Cesar Orrego talks about this concept showing the repercussion in today's society. This is a word that everyone talks about from different perspectives. War is a conflict between opposites that fight in an aggressive manner; it's the confrontation of the individual with the collective. Animals, unlike humans, only fight for food and territory so their fights can't be considered a war.
