"I have been reflecting on the curious ideas of Mexico common in the US, the routine factual inaccuracy, and the clotted hatred existing among nativists represented by such as Fox News. Some of it is the natural intolerance of a naive Anglo population that has historically hated blacks, Amerindians (the only good one being a dead one), Italians, Irish, Poles, Jews, Japanese, and so on. Plus ca change. Yet I think that something more is involved, not so much a clash of civilizations as an incompatibility of cultures." (04/03/11)
