A discussion about how Mexico became a state
Learning from governments in progress.

Learning how countries are built from the ground up is very telling about human nature—about what we build out of necessity. That’s why I loved this recent deep dive fromby Robin Grier. Let’s read her article “How Mexico Built a State,” then come discuss it with us in the literary salon. 👇🏻
