I'm a young male mexican who enjoys history, philosophy and taking photographs every now and then.
I'm a certain kind of harnizo mexican, grandson of peasants from the states of Hidalgo and Oaxaca from the side of the mother, and of Spanish and French immigrants from the side of the father. Once my family was quite wealthy, my great-grandfather was an ambitious entrepreneur who used a government loan to establish a great sugarmill, thus creating a patrimony; some people still remember "Ingenio Rosales", the good payments and how it transformed a forgotten town into an important city. The sons of my great-grandfather inherited his wealth and his businessman abilities but everything ended during the 90s; mismanagement of money and economic crisis provoked by neoliberal governments exhausted the heritage and now I live in middle class conditions. Though I'm happy with the things I own, I've seen the poverty of others and how the big capitalist companies swallow everything while this crappy neoliberal government turns a blind eye. By seeing the shortages and lack of justice in my country I became a Socialist willing to do what I can to save this land from the capitalist aggressors.
I like my homeland but it's beauty is being destroyed by the corrupt capitalist politicians and laissez-faire policies. Destroying this rotten system and establishing a new one may be difficult, perhaps impossible, but there's nothing worse than not trying, we can try and fail but never fail to try.
