    I’m a chef, so I’ll come at you from the food aspect. Without the New World, primarily Mexico we would not have tomatos, peppers, vanilla, chocolate, pineapples, corn, tobacco. Tomatoes, peppers, and vanilla are widely attributed to Mexico. Imagine your world without tomatoes and there’s a history for you.

    It will probably be what they accept and don’t accept in the future as to whether we have friends left in this world. They are well liked and are fascinated with our country and its wonderful developments but in the end it is whether we are able to retain Mexico as our friend or not in an ever changing world where most of Latin America is clearly seeing and feeling the change that China has for them and now have a bargaining chip in the power game that the US has dominated in the last couple of centuries and where our evolution has not been met with friendship but blood, their blood. When you speak of the Western Hemisphere you also are speaking of Mexico who is a major player in the history of this hemisphere. The Spanish built buildings in Mexico City and elsewhere that are older than the US. I think that to dis-include them from this is ignorant and not worthy of any kind of argument.

    most of the gold found by Explorers during the renaissance came from Mexico. This lure of wealth caused all the European nations to begin to expand colonies into “the New World” so I would say Mexico literally, paid the way, to shape the modern Western world.
