I kinda over analyze things sometimes.... I found the marches somewhat disturbing. At the same time, I feel for the families that lost someone.... 100,000 march after tragedies.... right?
Now when someone needs a helping hand or see a homeless person ... those same people are nowhere to be found. It just makes me sick thinking that people wait after someone is gone to show they care. And the "brown" part I kinda feel you on that too... Idk... maybe i just need some rest ...
Brown pants occasion?Thats hilarious Rubbertoe.I hear what youre saying that Mexico deserves airtime just as much as any other problem country but think if 911 hadn't occurred this French incident would barely have been mentioned.Its just that these extremists are a threat to many democratic countries and if Mexico was a threat to many countries it would be BIG headlines but Mexico would rather keep to itself and theres obviously a reason for that.[their secrets]
The biggest difference I see between the reaction elicited by the massacre in Paris versus the reaction to massacres in Mexico is what the respective governments do in response. In France, it triggered an all-out manhunt (and woman-hunt, except that she got away), while in Mexico, the government reacts to a massacre with almost total indifference. In Mexico, the government's first response to a massacre is to spread disinformation, to protect political allies, to avoid taking or assigning responsibility. And, since the Mexican government controls most of the media through the publicity contracts they award to newspapers and unofficial payments to reporters, the word is slow to get out about the latest massacre.
I guess if you plug in the lack of interest in the Boko Haram massacres the lack of govt. response makes sense. So the press reactions follow the government reaction by and large. So when stuff goes on a long time without gob. interest they need to cover up both, the bad stuff and their lack or reaction. Reacting late is an admission of indifference. Argues for a good strong two party system of Gob.
