Mexico has different groups struggling for supremacy. The indigenous people and rural farmers. Large landowners. Drug lords and other local bosses. A new generation of technocrats and (sort of) entrepreneurs. Ultra-right Catholics. Plutocrats. The US, which plays a major role in keeping people divided.

What's conspicuously missing is a generation with vision. It will take a person of tremendous inner strength and wisdom to channel anger and division into constructive social action.
