The United States and Mexico are neighbors and sometimes partners in a world of conflict, opportunity, misery, productivity, starvation, well-being, and unrest. However, they also have many different and separate problems and ideas. Their histories are quite distinct; the outlook of one country is dissimilar from that of the other country; and the present situation in,each country is distinguishable from the other. For these reasons, and others which will be discussed later, the attitudes of the two countries are also different and distinct. In order to explore these attitudes, this paper will look at the positions as presented by the editorials of certain newspapers of each of the two countries. This paper will attempt to define the attitudes of the newspapers and to draw some conclusions based on their views. The attitudes of the Mexicans are consistent with, and a direct result of, the history of the twentieth century. The ideals which have persisted throughout Mexican history combined with the attitudes and demands resulting from changing times, make up the total picture as expressed by the editorials. Mexicans do not appear to change ideas or ideals to fit the situation. Their beliefs as to what is right and just do not waiver.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
