Mexican national focus tree

Flag of Mexico Mexico gets a unique national focus tree with the Man the GunsMan the Guns expansion. Without the expansion, it utilizes the Generic national focus tree instead.

The historical path leads to an economy-minded Mexico with a secular, DemocracyDemocratic (at least nominally) state under the Partido Revolucionario Institucional. It will nationalize its oil industry and move closer to the United States, join the Allies and contribute to the war effort, mostly through its air volunteers, the "Aztec Eagles".

Many alternate history paths are available to Mexico, with two major opportunities to change the ruling party available for each ideology group (including the historical democratic Institutional Revolution focus Institutional Revolution path). Two of these paths focus on strengthening the power of the Catholic church in Mexico, either pursuing an extreme right-wing, synarchist, FascismFascist-aligned state that bears many similarities to the falangists of Nationalist Spain (Crusade Against Atheism focus Crusade Against Atheism); or a DemocracyDemocratic social Catholic state (Catholic Politics focus Catholic Politics). Another path to fascism is through the Mexican anti-Communist and ultranationalist "Gold Shirts"—a paramilitary group similar to the Nazi Sturmabteilung of Germany and the facist Blackshirts of Italy—which requires a weak church to seize power (Revanchist Revolution focus Revanchist Revolution). The two Communist paths focus on either reforming the current ruling party to become overtly socialist (Party of the Revolution focus Party of the Revolution), or pursuing a more revolutionary path through the anti-clerical, paramilitary "Red Shirts" (Communist Revolution focus Communist Revolution). Both of these paths erode the Church's power in favor of rationalism and state atheism. Aligning with the Red Shirts also opens up the possibility to replace Mexico's leader with the exiled Leon Trotsky himself, if he had previously been invited to the government.

On the international front, pursuing Communist or Fascist ideologies, or remaining Non-AlignedNon-Aligned, will permit Mexico to either create its own faction (with a Fascist or Communist character if Mexico pursued those ideologies) or to join the Axis or the Comintern. Either option allows Mexico to pursue war goals against other South American countries—and potentially to strike at the United States itself with the hope of reconquering the extensive territories Mexico ceded to the US following the Mexican–American War. Depending on how it decides to manage its foreign oil concessions, Mexico can also choose to pursue closer relations with the United States or the United Kingdom, and join their respective faction.

The Catholic Church in Mexico will become a thing of the past. The priests are counter-revolutionaries and peddlers of superstitious nonsense. We will press ever harder to turn Mexico into a bastion of rationalism and science!

The hard-working farmers of the communal ejido system are banding together to protect their interests in the new Mexico we are building.
The land reform promised in the Constitution of 1917 has seen slow progress. Often, landlords use thugs and private armies to intimidate their tenants to prevent redistribution. Let us organize the peasants, farmers and laborers into communal militias to protect the gains we are making against injustice.

There are many heavy-handed government policies preventing the market from transforming Mexico. The 1925 General Law of Credit Institutions, for example, prevents banks from owning shares in other banks. Ridiculous! The freer the market, the freer the people. Luis Montes de Oca, an advocate of the Austrian School of Economics, will help us reform the banking system.

The land reform program has long been abused by local strongmen with political connections or military power. A wealthy farmer stealing public land for his own gain doesn't help make Mexico stronger or more united. That land should instead be sold to the highest bidder. Perhaps some landlords do abuse their tenants, but that is a matter for the courts.

The ejido system places restrictions on the use of land, depending upon the use intended by the government. Why should the state force farmers into subsistence rather than growing cash crops for export? We can make Mexico wealthier if we break up the communal farms and allow real development to take place. Antiquated notions of self-reliance only stand in the way of progress and globalization.

The Northern General Saturnino Cedillo and other caudillos like him need assurances that their autonomy will be respected by the government.

Mexico: The caudillos are a menace. They divide Mexico into petty fiefdoms where their appointment of officials gives them power over the economy, military and government. They are looting the wealth of Mexico, and nowhere is this more true than in the province of General Saturnino Cedillo. His independence from the central government is utterly intolerable, and the rebels he is amassing will not avail him.

When the dust was settled, the victorious Northern generals met at Agua Prieta, Sonora, to lay out their plan for Mexico's future. They are a populist clique of modernizers and secularizers, or else a 'confederation of caciques' little better than bandit lords dividing their spoils, depending upon one's perspective.

Mexico will descend even deeper into chaos if Plutarco Calles loses his influence over the country.

In truth, Calles is simply an elderly statesman with only the best intentions for Mexico in mind. Losing him at this stage of the Revolution would be a travesty.

Many legislators and cabinet ministers of the Revolutionary governments opposed the extension of the right to vote for women because they believed women would be more easily swayed by the arguments of the clergy and would end the program of secularization.

Calles incited the Cristeros to revolt by heavy-handed application of the anti-religious articles of the Constitution. The Calles Law humiliates the clergy by forbidding the wearing of clerical garb in public and imprisonment for religious figures who criticize the government.

If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.'
During the Cristero War, when abuses were being committed on both sides, the international fraternity of the Knights of Columbus intervened to assist us. Initially they covertly raised donations to fund and arm the Cristeros. After the Mexican bishops disavowed the rebellion, the Knights lobbied the American government to host negotiations which ultimately ended the war.

The industrial revolution has put workers into inhumane situations. In order to counter socialist demands, a particular emphasis was put on the necessity of the mangagement to show compassion for their employees. This gave birth to a variant of Christian non-revolutionary socialism: social Catholicism.
A doctrine of political religion dating from the early 1900s, Social Catholicism places emphasis on relieving the burdens of the poor by attacking the causes of poverty. The injustices caused by unfettered industrial capitalism need a coherent response from the Church, and the progressive clergy of Mexico will do their best to resolve it.
