Why care about a dead Columbian, poor, rags to riches story for the man? People care because he could flip the system of power in Columbia and many of us want to FLIP something! Maybe Scarface is a homage to him or vice versa. But for the poor violence is they only way to change the system and this may seem crazy. But think for a minute, how could you change the world without violence and upset the powers that rule a little country filled with coruption much like the Philippines is over here in Asia.
I have no answer in the ways to FLIP the system and that includes many small 6TH world nations. Or is that 5th? We could also become Latino and change our surnames to Escobar, the 99 percent?
