151. Mexico has a great safety valve
called the US... The Turner Theory works here.

And I lived in Mexico, which has transformed itself into a middle class society, with middle class values. In fact, the next wave of immigrants might not be field hands, but nurses.

And yes Mexico could go, except that it has the US as a safety valve and... an internal war on drugs that has taken all kinds of thunder from the revolution types. Kid of it takes it off when there are people beheaded every so often.

As to the Brotherhood... people like Ben Ladin's deputy were expelled and the young in the organization are not as radical as their elders. In fact, they are more into social services than shariah law. The latter would be nice, but they made their peace with being a secular state (as secular as they get in the Arab World)
