So with that out of the way, anyone have any advice on how I can relate to Westerners or get work or friends with the way I think naturally? Cause it's a pain.

All I'm going to say is THAT is the difference between Mexico and the US.
That story was probably written by an 8 year old. Ohhh americans are suckers!
Give me a break.
FYI : while that mexican is struggling to feed his ten kids..the businessman is living in some expensive place and enjoying it. A product of his hard work. Nothing wrong with that !

Something wrong with prejudice and stereotyping though, why does the Mexican have to have 10 kids and is struggling to feed them?
For example, if you wish to have corn, well, you could go to the store and buy some seeds and grow them and have a corn garden. But - let's say you live next to a Westerner who thinks that people who grow their own corn are witches!
That Westerner will then call the police, and possible spread rumors about your corn growing prowess, resulting in you losing social status, friends, and all kinds of things! Of course you aren't going to grow corn after this!
But it's not real repercussions that are teaching you this, it is people that are completely insane that are teaching you this due to their incompetence in understanding reality.

Dear God James, I just read your post.
I hear you. I just can’t believe it’s that bad.
You’re telling me there’s NO WAY you can have a small piece of land, grow your own food and care for yourself, humbly, anywhere in America anymore?
You’re either exaggerating or I’m luckier than I ever knew not to be there anymore.
I hope you find a way out of your helplessness. Whatever the truth is in what you’ve said - I hope and pray you find a way out.
