I want to be blunt, and I would like some answers...
Frankly, I would like to be given the reasons why every Spanish speaking country in the world is a poor nation that qualifies as a 3rd world country? Besides Spain, every other country is 3rd world. Is that a co-incidence, or are these countries founders and the infrastructure so historically corrupt that they can never be 1st world?
Certainly, it can't be because the Spanish speaking populace can't create wealth? I won't buy that one.
Consider... Every country from Mexico down south to the tip of Argentina which includes 16 spanish speaking countries, excluding Carribbean Island Nations like Cuba and Dominican Republic. Every single one qualifies as a poverty stricken country, most if not all, with corrupt Governments and Police Forces at the helm.
These poor citizens exist in a class system that has no middle ground. You are either extremely wealthy or exceedingly poor.
All these countries which were at first colonized by the Spanish during their global expansion 400 years ago, have received their own independance and have been free to govern themselves for over a 100 years now. Yet none have been able to feed or protect their citizens from this impoverished lifecycle, or give them the basic freedoms that we enjoy and take for granted. Spain itself is a little better than these countries being situated in Europe, but it is still a poverty striken country, especially by European standards.
Why is this? Is it just a co-incidence, or is there an underlying reason why Spanish speaking countries cannot support their people? Certainly, they are placed in beautiful tourist thriving countries and all have some sort of export that is needed in the world. It can't be said that ALL these countries have no education system, and free thinking youth to become the new generation business leaders to move their country out of a 400 year drought, can it?
So I would like to know why EVERY single spanish speaking country is filled with corrupt govenment, dirty cops, drug lords, slum shanty towns, extreme poverty for 95% of its population, and why nobody I know has ever even bothered to bring it up?
Please let me know your thoughts and theories....and please be candid.
