slide13

A key failure of many Latin American legal systems is seen in the faces of the millions of impoverished Latin American citizens that have been wholly abandoned, even persecuted, by their governments and laws.

Miguel Schor, CONSTITUTIONALISM THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS OF LATIN AMERICA (2006)

The US wealth gap and “War on Terror” make this country seem more Latin American.

slide14
“Laziness and complacency are leading attributes of Iberian culture ….

“Catholicism harbors a remarkable tolerance of, and perhaps even a tacit preference for, corruption and backwardness ….

“Catholicism is hostile to technological advancement and rapid social change ….

Lawrence Harrison, The Pan-American Dream (1997)

… la América es ingobernable para nosotros, el que sirve una revolución ara en el mar, la única cosa que se puede hacer en América es emigrar [1830]“America is ungovernable. Those who serve the revolution plow the sea. All one can do is emigrate.”

Simon Bolivar

(1783-1830)
