What shall we do about Mexico?
The barbaric organized violence in the Third-World country to our south, which its government is unable to stop, and which frequently spills over into our country through our porous border, raises the question to the fore: what shall we do about Mexico?
As with Islam, it is not within our power to fix Mexico. It is, however, within our power to protect ourselves from Mexico, by separating it from us. And that is what we must do. Let us remember that Mexico is not our friend. Mexico’s implicit and explicit stance, both as a government and as a people, is a resentment-driven, expansive Mexican nationalism aimed at gaining power over the United States. And this Mexican anti-Americanism is shared by many of the Mexicans living in this country.
Yes, such a separation from Mexico would represent a radical departure from current realities. But it is within our power to do it, if we chose to do it. It is not within our power to fix Mexico, even if we desired it with all our hearts and invested our entire national wealth and energy in the attempt.
By suggesting that we separate from Mexico, you’re giving us an example of the conservative mind in action. The violence, gangs, and anti-Americanism are good reasons for stopping the Mexicanizing of our country.James R. writes:
I have a Dream, which I’m sure our selfless liberal friends will share, once they learn of it. Though they are not into acting out of self-interest, it will be win-win for both them and the Mexicans, and indeed all Latin America once this Dream becomes generalized.
