Mexico, 2022: López Obrador manages to gradually impose soft socialism

During 2022, in Mexico it continued, and at full speed, the implementation of soft socialismled by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), with all its classic expressions: destruction of democratic, autonomous institutions, electoral mega-assistance, gifts to the Army to win their will and political support, militarization of security and public service, agenda of LGBT, feminist and indigenous supremacism, leftist indoctrination in schools, push for polarization against conservatives.

In what context does this whole train take place? In a Mexico that It is the most dangerous country to practice journalism in the world. With 11 journalists assassinated this year, according to Reporters Without Borders, and with 40 so far in AMLO’s six-year term. Mexico is more dangerous than Ukraine, Syria, Iran to practice this profession.

It also advanced the militarization of public securitywhen in September the National Guard was placed under the command of the Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA).

The Army continues to be given new business, all unconstitutional, since it should only be dedicated to security. but no, because now manages several ports, six airports, and customsin addition to participating in the construction of the controversial and anti-ecological Mayan Train project, and in the masonry of the “Bancos del Bienestar”.

And while the armed forces are dedicated to making money and other tasks, Bill Barr, the well-known former US attorney general, already said in March that AMLO had lost control of Mexico to the narco. So flat and raw.

Mega-assistanceism also gallops let loose, when we see that 85% of Mexican households receive social programs; that is, 25 million families. This generates an obvious “thank you”, or should I say, conditioning so that people are inclined to vote for MORENA, AMLO’s party, which now comes out with the fact that it is no longer on the left, but that does not deny his militancy in the Sao Paulo Forum.

The socialist plan to indoctrinate children, still stands. They want to impose a Marxist “education” from the policies of the Ministry of Public Education (SEP). It seems to AMLO’s soft socialist government that the school plans inherited from previous administrations were only useful to submerge students in negative ideologies or positions, and they put in that same bag everything that hinders them as good red-bone Marxists that they are: the neoliberalism, racism, patriarchy, elitism, competitiveness and meritocracy.

At the same time, Mexico lives the highest inflation in two decadesthe disappearances of people have increased, and AMLO on a trip to Havana called for a new socialist revolution…

And he took care of tying himself to the Sao Paulo Forum and the Puebla Group to sabotage the Summit of the Americas in the middle of the year, and all to defend the tyrannies of his friends in Cuba and Venezuela.

In any case, in the elections, the MORENA party managed to advance and it already governs 22 of the country’s 32 states.

Among other important events, the Conference of the Mexican Episcopate (CEM) expressed its concern about the increase in violence, even qualifying Mexico as one of the most violent countries in the world.

In July the Iberosfera Monterrey Congress was held, with the presence of political leaders from Spain and all of America, and right-wing and conservative authors.

Then in November, Eduardo Verástegui, by the hand of Matt and Mercedes Schlapp, carried out the CPAC MEXICO (Conservative Political Action Conference), the most important event of conservatism in the United States, for the first time in Mexico.

Dozens of politicians, activists, lecturers, and writers met there, of a very good level, and who were immediately criticized with the usual harassment from power, by AMLO.

On October 9, a large pro-life march was heldthe second after that of 2021, managing to gather, adding all the cities, close to 1 million people.

Unfortunately, however, 2022 was marked with a main theme: the destruction of the National Electoral Institute (INE)by AMLO and his legislators, who carried out a reform to strip it of offices, funds, and autonomy, returning Mexico almost to the way it was 40 years ago, with elections centralized by the presidency and its people and not by an autonomous body .

Given this, there was a march in favor of the defense of the INE on November 13, in which it was possible to concentrate about 700 thousand people in Mexico City. The opposition was organized that day, and left its habitual lukewarmness.

For its part, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) launched a draft resolution to prohibit Catholic nativity scenes (mangers) in all public spaces, arguing that they would “disturb” those who profess other religions or are atheists, and their human rights would be affected, in a progressive position that rather violates the right to religious freedom and free expression.

The government policy of “hugs, not bullets” against organized crime meant de facto inaction against the actors that cause insecurity in the country. And the advances for the recentralization of the public administration implied affectations to the states.

Anyway, as things are, this year closes this way: so far in the six-year term we can already consider it the worst of the most recent, in terms of intentional homicides: there are already 138,000 and in relation to murdered journalists, there are already 40. Gasoline is still expensive and has not dropped to 10 pesos (half a dollar), as AMLO promised.

We didn’t grow at 5% a year as he swore, either. Nor do we have a health system like Denmark’s. Children with cancer continue to lack access to medicines. And there is constant intimidation against opponents by AMLO, who, yes, continues to build a leadership of the red Latin American block and setting the agenda for the Sao Paulo Forum and the Puebla Group and now defends the coup leader Pedro Castillo. But we Mexicans did not vote for this, nor for his compadrazgo with socialist banana dictators, such as Maduro, and Díaz Canel.
