15. This is Mexico's fault, not ours. Mexico is a oligarchy, has been since before Pancho Villa.
It is why Pancho rode against the Hacienda owners (much like our OWS movement today, except Pancho was not nearly so peace-loving). This is what happens when people do not rise up against a corrupt government. That government will not pass environmental laws to ensure that their society is safe because it causes lost funds to the elite rich. The Mexican people need a new revolution, they have needed one for almost a century now.
