1. Overview

#spain

The site of several advanced Amerindian civilizations - including the Olmec, Toltec, Teotihuacan, Zapotec, Maya, and Aztec - Mexico was conquered and colonized by Spain in the early 16th century. Administered as the Viceroyalty of New Spain for three centuries, it achieved its independence early in the 19th century. The global financial crisis beginning in late 2008 caused a massive economic downturn the following year, although growth returned quickly in 2010. Ongoing economic and social concerns include low real wages, underemployment for a large segment of the population, inequitable income distribution, and few advancement opportunities for the largely indigenous population in the impoverished southern states. The elections held in 2000 marked the first time since the 1910 Mexican Revolution that an opposition candidate - Vicente FOX of the National Action Party (PAN) - defeated the party in government, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). He was succeeded in 2006 by another PAN candidate Felipe CALDERON, but the PRI regained the presidency in 2012. Since 2007, Mexico's powerful drug-trafficking organizations have engaged in bloody feuding, resulting in tens of thousands of drug-related homicides.

CIA's The World Factbook (2013)9

Book CoverJungles, deserts; teeming cities, one-street pueblos; fiesta fireworks, Frida´s angst: Mexico conjures up so many contradictory images, but no preconceptions will ever live up to the reality. From the southern jungles to the smoking, snowcapped volcanoes and the cactus-dotted northern deserts, all surrounded by 10,000km of coast strung with sandy beaches and wildlife-rich lagoons, Mexico is an endless adventure for the senses. Take it easy by lying on a beach, dining alfresco or strolling the streets of some pretty town, or get out and snorkel warm Caribbean reefs, hike mountain cloud forests or take a boat in search of dolphins or whales.

At the heart of your Mexican experience will be the Mexican people. A superdiverse crew, they´re justly renowned for their love of color and frequent fiestas. You will rarely find Mexicans less than courteous; they´re often positively charming. They are fiercely proud of Mexico, their one-of-a-kind homeland with all its variety, tight-knit family networks, beautiful-ugly cities, deep-rooted traditions, unique agave-based liquors and sensationally tasty, chili-laden food. It doesn´t take long to understand why.

The United Nations produces an annual Human Development Report which includes the Human Development Index. The factors taken into account include life expectancy, education and schooling and Gross National Income (GNI) amongst many others..

The Social and Moral Development Index concentrates on moral issues and human rights, violence, public health, equality, tolerance, freedom and effectiveness in climate change mitigation and environmentalism, and on some technological issues. A country scores higher for achieving well in those areas, and for sustaining that achievement in the long term. Those countries towards the top of this index can truly said to be setting good examples and leading humankind onwards into a bright, humane, and free future. See: What is the Best Country in the World? An Index of Morality, Conscience and Good Life.

Mexico's population is predicted to rise to 135.4 million by 2030. These millions of extra people will all need space to live, food to eat, energy to consume, and will increase the burden on the planet's resources. This country has a fertility rate of 2.25. The fertility rate is, in simple terms, the average amount of children that each woman has. The higher the figure, the quicker the population is growing, although, to calculate the rate you also need to take into account morbidity, i.e., the rate at which people die. If people live healthy and long lives and morbidity is low, then, 2.0 approximates to the replacement rate, which would keep the population stable. If all countries had such a fertility rate, population growth would end. The actual replacement rate in most developed countries is around 2.1.

4. Human Rights, Equality and Freedom

#equality #freedom #human_rights #mexico #politics #tolerance

Mexico does relatively well in ensuring human rights and freedom, compared to many other countries. Mexico does the second-best in its nominal commitment to Human Rights18. It comes in the top 20 in LGBT equality19. It does better than average in fighting anti-semitic opinions20, commentary from Human Rights Watch21, eliminating modern slavery22, opposing gender inequality23 and in supporting personal, civil & economic freedoms24. Mexico does not succeed in everything, however. It does worse than average in fighting corruption25, its Global Peace Index rating26 and in supporting press freedom27. Since President Enrique Peña Nieto took office in 2012, "security forces have been implicated in repeated, serious human rights violations during efforts to combat organized crime" included murders and the use of torture28. A long-term problem with "disappearances" and poor forensics support for identifying bodies fails to be adequately addressed.

Data from the Pew Forum, a professional polling outfit, states that in 2010 the religious makeup of this country was as follows in the table below31:

Christian95.1%
Muslim0.1%
Hindu0.1%
Buddhist0.1%
Folk Religion0.1%
Jew0.1%
Unaffiliated4.7%

It appears that when asked "What religion are you" many give pollsters the 'correct' answer despite how they actually feel, and despite what they actually believe. Although 95.6% of the populace say they belong to a religion, only 73% say that they are religious when the question is phrased as "Is religion an important part of your daily life?".

For more on this phenomenon, see:

The CIA World Factbook has slightly different data, and states: Roman Catholic 82.7%, Protestant 1.6%, Jehovah's Witnesses 1.4%, other Evangelical Churches 5%, other 1.9%, none 4.7%, unspecified 2.7% (2000 census)32.

The Afterlife: Ipsos-NA in 2011 gathered some statistics on Mexico33. Despite the large numbers of Christians, not many have traditional beliefs in the afterlife - just 15%. More people don't know what to believe (16%). Even more people believe that upon death, you simply cease to exist (17%). Also, 1% specifically believe in heaven but not in hell (which is nice - making them possible "universalists"). 11% believe in reincarnation.

Freedom of Religion and Belief: "Mexico has been plagued with periods of violent religious persecution and conflict, especially in the state of Chiapas"34.

Internet access has become an essential research tool. It facilitates an endless list of life improvements, from the ability to network and socialize without constraint, to access to a seemingly infinite repository of technical and procedural information on pretty much any task. The universal availability of data has sped up industrial development and personal learning at the national and personal level. Individuals can read any topic they wish regardless of the locality of expert teachers, and, entire nations can develop their technology and understanding of the world simply because they are now exposed to advanced societies and moral discourses online. Like every communications medium, the Internet has issues and causes a small range of problems, but these are insignificant compared to the advantages of having an online populace.
