Currently, all three of these Latin American countries are
said to follow democratic policies and ideals. Yet, it seems that the true
problem has to do with the quality of democracy that exists in these countries.
The citizens are supposed to be protected and given the power to be used due to
the existence of the constitution. Through citizenship, all the citizens should
be equal and autonomic. Without this base, the democracy of these countries has
little to no meaning as each citizen’s vote for candidates should be equally
counted, regardless of the social status of the voter. But, this is only one
way that effective citizenship can be shown. With corruption and violence in
the streets, the unpredictability of the lives of the people leads to the
suffering of the economy.

 

         Through the ups and downs of Latin
American history, it is evident that changes must be made in order to better
the lives of the Latin American people. The state government institutions
should be improved in order to create sustainable socio-economic policies that
can finally stabilize the economic state of the Latin American countries. It is
seen that many of the Latin American countries especially Mexico, Brazil, and
Argentina suffer from a dualistic view of their people and countries overall as
one side shows the rich and some middle class who can actually make money, have
an education, and can buy themselves houses, goods, and a sense of security
while, the other side is poor as well as the ones who have no security for
their future especially in terms of finances, leaving them feeling isolated
from the others especially their own government. There is definitely a link
between these two sides of the Latin American countries. However, it seems that
just like they received their independence in solidarity, they should try to
stand together to overall remove some social distance in order to effectively
lead their countries to stable economic states.

Socio-economic inequality existed in Latin America during
colonialism and continued to haunt them after their independence from Spain and
Portugal. Current increases in socio-economic inequality in Latin America can
be argued is due to the unavoidable consequence of not correcting past errors,
allowing history to repeat itself in different manifestations. Socio-economic
inequality stems from the exclusion of groups from political participation, no
land redistribution for agrarian reform, and lack of access to education, which
has led into today’s inequality that is surrounded with corruption, lack of
investment into creating a bond between the government and businesses, churches
and other organizations, and a kind of political weakness and even isolation of
the poor especially during economic crises.
