"For the first time we can perceive something of the real proportion of features and events on the stage of the whole world, and may seek a formula which shall express certain aspects, at any rate, of geographical causation in universal history." Sir Halford Mackinder

Oswaldo Zavala: Cartels Don't Exist & How Narcos Are Subordinate to the U.S. & Mexican State

Dr. Oswaldo Zavala discusses his book "The Cartels Don't Exist" in which he examines the questionable narrative that the Mexican drug cartels are in control of the government. In fact, he points to evidence that it is the U.S. and Mexican security state apparatus managing the drug cartels. He deconstructs how the state's false narrative of being the victim of the cartels then is reproduced by mass media, ambitious but naive journalists, film (e.g. Netflix's Narcos, Sicario, Infierno), popular literature, telenovelas and soap operas.
