What is the history of violent crime being extremely high in Latin America? Was it always thus, or did it used to be more peaceful? And if so, what changed?
>>10242589Hmmm I wonder...
Okay so we’re living in what’s called the fifth age of the sun, right?
>>10242595Something like that was an official state policy, though. It wasn't 'crime.' I'm talking about street crime and general lawlessness. I doubt that Aztecs allowed 'muggers' or 'armed robbers' to run around their cities doing as they pleased.
Drugs.Mexico in 2000 had a lower murder rate than the US did in 1990. Then the Caribbean drug smuggling routes got closed down and Mexican cartels started to get most of the money from cocaine and heroin trafficking to America. Homicide rates in Mexico tripled in between 2007 and 2011.Also, weak legal systems due to single party rule, coups, and corruption.
>>10242618Those rates may have been artificially low for Mexico, though. Historically, Mexico has had a much higher murder rate than what it had in the early-00's.
>>10242628The big drop in the 90s is because the AFI (Mexico's equivalent of the FBI) took over drug trafficking for a while and that created a de facto peace in the drug market.Then single party rule ended and things got all fucked up.
A part of the middle class has gone criminal, completely brainwashed by consoomerism. Kind of like Breaking Bad

>>10242704It’s this, the most peaceful mexican states are the most native ones while the most violent mexican states are c*stizo majority. C*stizo thugs roam the nation and terrorize peaceful natives for no reason, most hispanic gangsters in the us are c*stizos while the native majority mestizos are busy working 3 jobs to feed their family.
What was it so slow in the late 60s?
>>10242595No more violent than anyone else at the time
The mass urbanization of Latin America started around the early 60s with many rural families migrating and keeping the rural practice of bearing many children; families of six, eight, ten children were common and those children coming of age was around two decades later in the late seventies and early eighties. High density and high poverty leads inevitably to informal economies and crime, and also Latin America has something that its unique to the region in coca crops growth and traffic. Put all this together to have a grasp on why the region still is mired in violence related to drug trafficking.
>>10244044so you're saying Urbanization was a mistake?
>>10242589Anyone in this thread bringing up the Aztecs or the Spanish is a fucking brainlet faggot with no nuance. None of the spics alive today are descendants of Conquistadors or native warrior castes. LatAm is a shithole because of their obsession with populist politicians and their Pre-Enlightenment Catholic work ethic. Their culture comes with a hefty 15th century form of honor that Europeans have long since moved on from. Revenge killings, bribery, and crimes of passion ard all acceptable in Hispanic society and for this they are no better than an average European slum in the 1700s.
>>10242595Ironically, Mesoamerican city states were more orderly and cleaner than New Spain despite their penchant for blood sacrifice. Go ahead and read Sahagun's chronicles of the Mexica. Colonial Mexico was a fucking pig stye and it's amazing that anyone would draw parallels between an organized city state like Tenochtitlan and some smelly shit covered street in modern day Tepito.
It's because of their IQ is in the perfect range for criminality. It's that simple.I am sure this thread will be filled with long winded social "science" copes about how its some economic or cultural reason though. These may be partly true but the underlying cause for THESE problems is the low IQ.
>>10242595>All of Latin America is Mexico
