Mr Obrador is doomed to failure unless he stops thinking that the current Mexican culture can be successful if it is just tweaked. He can make a good start by doing just two things:

1. Change Mexico's legal system to presume that people are innocent until proven guilty, including adding jury trials. This will curtail corruption.

2. Encourage family planning. Tax deduction for first child, half for second, none for subsequent. This will ensure that children have the resources to be successful in a modern economy, rather than growing up in poverty and ignorance. comment by usgoosht on Mexican president-elect slashes his own salary Jul 16, 2018 03:24 AM [GMT]

Months of investigation and this is it? Twelve people swayed the US election? This guy is grasping at straws. The fact he spent so much time and money for so little return leads to the question of why? Who is driving this, and what are they trying to obfuscate?

We might as well indict the guardian newspaper from the UK with trying to sway the election, as they were clearly trying to influence people to vote for Hillary Clinton. comment by usgoosht on Government Charges 12 Russian Officers With Election Attack Jul 14, 2018 2:13 PM [GMT]

'Moderate' muslims are the members of the cult that don't want to be members of the cult, but don't have the strength to reject the cult. So, they invent a pretend version of the cult, and pretend that they are still muslim. comment by usgoosht on Merkel's migrant deal hangs on Social Democrat, EU approval Jul 3, 2018 3:56 PM [GMT]

Don't pay any attention to what the 'moderate' Muslims say. They are pretend Muslims, and their pretend Islam is not representative of the cult of Islam. The jihadis are the people to pay attention to; they speak to the true cult of Islam.

The best way to understand the cult is to read its scriptures, and examine its history. The hatred, the intolerance, the incitement to violence, the oppression, are all there to see.

The 'moderate' Muslims will cave when the jihadis take over. They are as resistant as marshmallows, and have spines as stiff as cooked spaghetti in the face of the jihadis. That's because they know that they aren't true Muslims according to the scriptures of the cult. A few beheadings, some stonings and floggings, some limb amputations, and they will fall in line with the true cult with barely a whimper of protest.

Look at Mr Khan in London. He talks a good game, but does he act against the jihadis? Ha ha ha. Forget it, he isn't going to go there. Instead he defends the cult, and the scriptures of the cult, with all their hatred and intolerance. Ripe for the plucking when the time comes. comment by usgoosht on Merkel's migrant deal hangs on Social Democrat, EU approval Jul 3, 2018 3:53 PM [GMT]

Finally the politicians in Europe are coming to an understanding of the nature of the cult of Islam. Muslims will never integrate into Europe, and their cult is inimical to current European culture. The only way they should be allowed to remain is by renouncing their cult. If they don't, they should be given a year to find another refuge, and then expelled.

Freedom of religion in the cult of Islam.

A follower asked Mohammed, "What should we do if someone leaves Islam?" Mohammed said, "You should kill him." Note that in this case the pronoun is not general, but specific, as this only applies to males. Women in the cult of Islam are considered property, slaves really, and so they are treated differently if they become apostate; a woman is confined, or confined and beaten, until she recants her apostasy. Why destroy valuable property.

Mohammed was holding a meeting. In the room was a Jew who had converted to Islam, and then rejected Islam and returned to judaism. One of Mohammed's thugs entered the room, and when Mohammed invited him to take a seat, he said, "I refuse to sit in the presence of that apostate. How can we call ourselves Muslims if we let an apostate live." So Mohammed had the Jew (apostate) taken out and killed.

Mohammed is the 'perfect man' for all Muslims, so all Muslims consider him a role model, and males strive to emulate his behavior. comment by usgoosht on Merkel's migrant deal hangs on Social Democrat, EU approval Jul 3, 2018 3:41 PM [GMT]

What it boils down to is that Mexicans can't expect to change Mexico without changing who they are.

Like most people, they want to keep being who they are, but get a different outcome. Ha ha ha Good luck with that. comment by usgoosht on AMLO Won. What Comes Next for Mexico? Jul 3, 2018 3:10 PM [GMT]

I suspect Mexico will slide down the same slippery slope that Venezuela slid down after the election of Mr Chavez.

Mexico needs a social makeover; the latin culture of nepotism, selfishness, and corruption is terminal. He could start by encouraging family planning and education. But, unfortunately, the family planning seems to go against his innate principles, and he is beholden to the existing education establishment.

If Mexico slides further into being a failed state, eventually it will become untenable for the US to allow it to destroy itself. Long before it degenerates to the level of current Venezuela, the US will step in and make it a protectorate. That could be good for Mexico, if done well. And a disaster for both Mexico and the US if done poorly. Given the incompetence the US has demonstrated around the world in other interventions, it would likely be the latter. But, even a poor outcome would be better than a failed Mexican state a la Venezuela on the US' southern border.

I have little sympathy for the oligarchy that has run Mexico for the last century. If they hadn't been so self-centered, and had focused on lifting the poor of Mexico out of their cultural morass, this would not have come to pass. Unfortunately, men of the caliber of the founding fathers of the US seem to be rare in the history of nations.

Like most of Latin America, Mexico suffers from its antecedents. A stone age tribal culture of slavery and human sacrifice, a Catholic church in the insanity of the inquisition, and the absolute power of the aristocracy inherited from Spain. It isn't surprising that the outcome is so dismal. comment by usgoosht on AMLO Won. What Comes Next for Mexico? Jul 3, 2018 3:01 PM [GMT]
