I'm not sure that all your readers will see the seriousness of what you say about the general society in Mexico accepting corruption as inevitable and therefore there is little hope that the military and police forces can be freed of corruption. In my 8 years in that country as a Christian missionary, the corruption was so pervasive - even to not being able to convince seminary students or any national leaders of Christian movements to regard some lying or cheating or stealing as "necessary to survive." Unless we can get people convince to become totally honest persons ¿what chance will there be for reforming any system?

(I meant "convince them to NOT regard those things as necessary).

Enrique Pena Nieto will be sworn in as Mexico's next president Dec. 1. He will take office at a very interesting point in Mexican history. Mexico is experiencing an economic upturn that may become even more pronounced if Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party administration is able to work with its rivals in the National Action Party to enact needed reforms to Mexico's labor, financial and energy laws.
