He registered for military service as required when he was 18, but he was given a medical deferment from military service because of his asthma. As for his political orientation at this stage of his life, he was a “progressive liberal” who avoided affiliation with any political organization (Anderson:50). His political views were nationalist, anti-imperialist, and anti-American, but he was quite critical of the Argentine Communist Party and its youth organization at the university for their sectarianism (intolerance of other political organizations and ideologies).
Later on, when he was enrolled in school, his mother taught him to speak and read French, in which he was fluent. By this time the frequency of his asthmatic attacks had decreased considerably, and his attendance in secondary school was quite regular. Despite his asthma, as he grew older Ernesto became involved in a wide variety of outdoor activities and sports. He swam, played soccer and golf, rode horses, took up target shooting, and loved biking and hiking (Anderson 1997:18). Although he sometimes had to be carried home by his friends because of an asthma attack, he was determined to do everything his friends could do and refused to let his asthma limit him.
Ernesto also was an avid reader. From his father he developed a love for books on adventure and history, especially the works of Jules Verne (Taibo 1996:24), and from his mother he gained a love for fiction literature, philosophy, and poetry. He had read nearly every book in his parents’ relatively large home library by the time he was in his early adolescence. Ernesto grew up in a highly politicized environment. Both his mother and father identified with the leftist Republican cause during the Spanish Civil War, and after the war they became close friends with two Spanish Republican families who had been forced to flee Spain and seek exile in Argentina after the fall of the republic when the dictatorship of General Francisco Franco was established.
