Corruption is the core of the problem in Mexico. The country is very rich in natural resources, but only a small group enjoys the benefits. People on top don't have an incentive for sharing their wealth. They have managed to keep the masses dormant (mostly) by perpetuating ignorance by feeding them with cheap entertainment(soap operas, vulgar comics, cantinas, etc.) Also, most political leaders don't want change because they do well financially. (Although Mexico GDP/per capita isn't high, the politicians are among the best paid in the world, not counting what they steal). So, they have no incentive for change. The politicians who show tendencies to make changes for the people will get death threats or die under unclear circumstances. Criminal organizations have power through government networks and by recruiting ex-police force members who get paid more with them. The Mexican Revolution didn't accomplish much: a power shift, new ruler and the oppressed remained oppressed.
