[383] � What such a tally cannot put a number to are the millions affected by such a reign of terror, and what it does to a society’s fabric.� Colombia is by far South America’s most violent nation, and has been the world's most violent nation in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, with murder rates that dwarfed all other nations.
