The Latinization of the West

South AmericaThe term seems absurd. Weren’t the Latins a Western people? Yes, at one time they were. Two millennia later their culture is awash around the globe, primarily as an example of poor governance, corruption, and quasi-military rule. America and Europe are headed in that direction.

      This is the best article I have ever read on why South America is the way it is.

      I didn’t find it depressing but quiet accurate. BLM in my opinion confirms how accurate the writer is. What I do find depressing however is the extent of marxist infiltration throughout Western institutions and how much destruction this has brought and continues to bring.

    Here we go again. It never occurs to these Anglophone writers on Latin America/Southern Europe to
    A) remember that the Moslems predatory behaviour lasted 1200 years 711-1830
    B) The Iberian Peninsula’s path towards decentralized rule and market economy was permanently blighted by the Moslem invasion and razzias. Sure the Catalans and Basques are better in this respect but yhe Latin region aren’t Northern Europe and never will be. So instead of despairing find those tradition that resonate with the Latin’s desire for peace, rule of law and prosperity
    C) there is a Liberal tradition as articulated by the Salamanca school but has been so successfully been suppressed since Felipe II that most Latins have been deprived of a rich tradition that would resolve many of the problems.
    D) Consequently no one especially Anglophone political theorists have advocated reviving that tradition instead favouring Locke,Mills and others who are completely artificial and are sterile because they simply irrelevant and don’t resonate
