Any history told from the point of view of the enemies of the revolution is
nothing but counter-revolutionary history. The history of the revolution
will be written by the masses, not by windbags.

Moreover, I do not write history.  I am to busy immersed in it to waste my
time in trying to define if Hugo Blanco was a hero or a failure.  The very
people of Peru - who he fooled for a few years - have already given their
verdict, and that is good enough for me!

And, lastly, the last thing I will do is to wite anything for a phoney left
rag. For our views, we got our own press, thankyou very much.

Adolfo Olaechea
