Well, we all gain most of our knowledge anecdotally. That, in itself, doesn’t make us correct or incorrect. Even convincing commentaries or studies by “experts” are anecdotal, since there are always “experts” who take the negative side of nearly every subject.
You know the Mexicans you know, if you know any, and I know the ones I know. Until you present better evidence of the average Mexican’s view of money, enterprise, and such things as taxation, I do not stand corrected.
But if you know any, and most particularly if you do business with them, you would not seriously deny what I said.
I certainly acknowledge that many big business folks are government-lovers because they profit from government policies and sometimes direct those policies. But that’s not real “capitalism”. That’s government-aided oligopoly.
But it’s an interesting thing for you to have said. One of the reasons for the American Revolution was the granting of “patents” for business by the crown to favored bigwigs. If you didn’t have one, you couldn’t engage in the business, and wars were fought to defend or advance the interests of big, influential businesses. Perhaps one of the most amusing to me is the Brit navy serving a “grog ration” of rum to sailors. You see, the sugar plantations in the Brit west indies produced a surplus of molasses, a by-product of sugar production…
And of course Dems don’t say they want to keep Hispanics or any other minority “on the plantation”. It’s not something they would say. They just do.
