2011.... this year got me really worried about the sanity of people in goverment, and overall sanity of people both in Mexico and in the U.S. Theres something wrong about the way politics are conducted in this system. And i think its because there is a flaw in democracy. Something about elections in both of these countries (both of which i hope the best for) troubles me because i do believe everyone should have a say in how a country is run, but at the same time you cant have democracy in a society where media manipulation clashes with insincere values and ignorance. I think the flaw with democracy is that it assumes that if all votes are equal, then ALL votes will come come from people who are equally as intellectual/informed. But a vote from someone who can be more easily manipulated can equalize the vote of a legit, informed vote.
In my experience, education provided by the goverment is dangeous becuase it doesnt teach you how to be skeptical. And it is so damn dangerous when something like this occurs and the future these countries is in jeopardy.
Remember friends, Ignorance is NEVER bliss. and the enemy of my enemy is not my friend.
If you think american politics are totally out to lunch you should see the guy who will probably win for president of Mexico...
