The Peace of God to all that belong to the light,
Let me comment about this last reply that I found very true, that it is indeed only question of time that USA decide to interfere in the internal
problems of our Latin American neighbor.
The point is what type of intervention is the one that really will be effective to cure all the problems that Mexico has at present?
Is that true that everything is going to be ok by using only the force? Is this another chapter of the so long history of American invasions to the
Let me try to answer all these questions:
First at all what is the root cause of all the terrible social, economical, moral crisis that Mexico is affronting since 1994? Do we really
understand it? Is that related in any way with the current Economical model that we have in this country?
As all of us can remember the Mexican economy is no longer Mexican, in the strict sense of the word, since the begining of 1990's, when the Nafta
free trade agreement started. Since that moment until Now, Mexico has been slowly but firmly conquered not by a Great soldier like Hernan Cortes
or by the sofisticate figure of Maximiliam of Habsburg, but for a new genre of economical occupation named the Walmart Pheonomenon.
The Walmart Phenomenon is nothing else than the conquest of the Mexican market by so cheap products, of course all made in China or the far east
economies in which the workers earn salaries of starvation, that could enter to its economy thanks to the Nafta Agreement
The consequence of this invasion of these Chinese products, that are being sold with Made in USA labels, is that hundreds of thousands of
legimitate Mexican companies were sent to the bankrupty leaving millions of Mexican workers unemployed.
For this incredible big mass of population, that was condemned by Nafta to be in poverty, the only alternative that the Globalization & the World New
Order of G.Bush Father offered are:
- To be part of the black market of informal economy, the thousands and thousands of illegal small merchants that sale products illegaly imported by
the maffias, also from the far east;
- To be part of the Narcoeconomy being involved in all the different activities related with the criminal world, and that is the origin if the
formidable increasing of the violence in Mexico;
- to migrate illegaly to the USA to be part of the millions of Mexican that are working in this country for very low salaries, without any social
security and with the daily risk to be deported to its country.
All those are, my dear readers, the terrible consequences that Nafta is producing in Mexico at present and is indeed the root cause of the climate
of conflict that we perceive in that nation and that in 2006 almost put in the power Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the Mexican version of Hugo Chavez.
Nafta has proved, since the begining, to be not the agreement of equal associates that was promoting by the Bush Father administration but the
biggest economical colonization that was done in the modern times.
Even the crisis of 1994, that exploided with the devaluation of Peso, thanks to the so disbalanced external trade that President Salinas leave to his
sucessor, was a clear consequence of the way in which that agreement was signed.
In 1991, when Mexico entered to Nafta, the Bush Father administration forced Mexico to change its currency saying that in the new status of
Associate of the USA that country deserved to have a more revaluated money, when in fact that was a smart strategy created by the American trusts,
that produce everything in China, to weak the only natural competitive advantage that the Mexican companies would have to resist the fiercy
The point is that if the Mexican currency never was changed, the old one, since it was so devaluated could assure the supervival of the Mexican
industries exportin at very low prices their products. Also if the old peso would still exit many American companies can be producing in that country
and not inthe far east giving employment to millions of Mexicans.
Salinas de Gortari, a so corrupt politician that had his own brother in a jail for several years, of course earnt a lot of money with the agreement,
since every body knows in Mexico that he received a lot of priviledges from the big Multinational companies.
That is in part the money that Raul Salinas never could explain how he earnt and that was found in his personal bank accounts in Switzerland.
Carlos Salinas literally sold the other half of Mexico that nobody After Antonio Lopez de Santana dared to offered before to any external
The tremendous cost of the change of currency, by other side, was other factor that pushed the terrible crisis of 1994, in the same way that the
reconversion of the currency in the East Germany, caused another one for Germany after it was reunified at the end of Cold war.
Just to finish this Analysis, let me predict that if the Nafta is not renegociated, of course by Mexico, the terrible negative impact to its
agriculture, now that is also open its food market, is going to push the nation to a social situation so explosive that could be the begining of
another Mexican Revolution. My inner perception says to me that it is really difficult that such social explosion will not be in collision with the
national security of the USA.
Thanks for your atention,
The Angel of lightness
