Empire blues

23 June 2018

Once a culture buys into its own right to empire, it doesn’t matter whether the government is “liberal” or “conservative”… they may sell exploitation and justify their sense of entitlement over the “colonials” in different words… but that doesn’t let the imperialists off the hook.

    False equivalence.

      To what? The present U.S. administration’s policies are simply a logical extension of those of previous U.S. administration policies. Besides, I have never claimed to be fair and balanced in what I chose to post.

    So why isn’t Mexico a better place for Central American refugees than the USA? Culturally those folks would be able to fit into Mexican society without so much as a brief pause. Right? They already speak Spanish, are mostly Catholic, and have a better innate understanding of Mexico, which is far more similar to their own countries, than the USA.

    Would you support Mexico taking these folks? Does Mexico think Central Americans have a god-given right to live in Mexico? (Sort of like AMLO recently implied that Mexicans have in the USA?)

    For Honduras, the mess is at least partly due to US indifference to the overthrow of a duly elected president.
