LAURA CARLSEN—No one expects a 100% transformation, or paradise to begin on Dec. 1– the day the new president is inaugurated. But politics isn’t ever a game of winner-takes-all. The fundamental hope expressed at the urns on July 1 is simply that the lives of the millions of Mexicans who have suffered the ravages of neoliberalism and repression these past three decades will improve.

Mexico is therefore in a conundrum because it must urgently deal with the cartels yet there’s no perfect solution for doing so, as the existing “hard” policy has evidently failed while the “soft” one could amount to surrendering the state to their clutches. These groups are also much too enticing of a lever of possible influence against the Mexican government for US intelligence agencies to willingly abandon them, especially since they might one day want to exploit them as Hybrid War instruments against AMLO if his foreign policy becomes too multipolar.

STEVEN ARGUE—To the extent AMLO attempts to carry out these and related promises and comes under further U.S. imperialist attack, it will become necessary to defend AMLO from inevitable U.S. imperialist regime change operations.
An interview with Dr. John Ackerman – professor of law at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), columnist with La Jornada newspaper and Proceso Magazine, and a frequent contributor to international media such as The New York Times, Le Monde Diplomatique and Foreign Policy – regarding the myth of the transition to democracy in Mexico, the imminence of fraud in the upcoming presidential election, and the promise of a progressive government led by Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

GAITHER STEWART—Despite the high percentage of Indios in Mexico, one is tempted to conclude that the Mexican is more European. But it is not that either. The nature of the Mexican makes one wonder if it is positive to be so universal that you can accept anything philosophically? For their universality has not brought great fortune to Mexico! No more than has its proximity to the USA. It seems that only still more ancient peoples like, for example, Sicilians or Sardinians are capable of being simply men. Men who don’t strive for perfection.
