Mexico: Only a Burden
Print Friendly and PDF

Bellamy London's recent review of Richard Grant's God's Middle Finger: Into the Lawless Heart of the Sierra Madre followed by Brenda Walker's blog yesterday: Meltdown in Ciudad Juarez reminds us of what an utterly dysfunctional state it is with which our esteemed President seems to want us to merge.

It reminds me in particular of the most insightful essay I have ever read on Mexican history: "Mark in Mexico"s "The last word in Mexico".

PC: I believe every Immigration Patriot should read this essay:

Why is Mexico such a mess? It's the culture. Don't scoff. I live here, remember? Mexicans do not understand the very basics of Rule of Law. They don't understand them and I don't believe they ever will...
Do Mexicans realize and understand the situation in which they find themselves? No. Can or will they fix it? No. So what keeps the country from exploding into anarchy and/or another "revolution" (read Civil War)?
Two things;
First, no weapons...
Second, there is a gigantic safety valve which is protected, encouraged, supported and maintained by the Mexican government. Guess where that is? Yep, it is the northern border through which some 10,000 Mexicans flee per day along with some 600 to 1500 others from likewise failed banana and narco republics further to the south

Both Mark in Mexico, and the wonderful Houston blog which alerted to his work, A Certain Slant of Light, have fallen silent.

The fact is, as followers of my own work will have realized, love can only motivate so far. HINT!
