The most significant feature of this country is the mediocrity of its people. This is a beautiful land, but most Mexicans are just mediocre.
A recent story.
A friend of mine teaches in a university, his students are doing Journalism. As he mentioned The Guardian, nobody knew the paper. He was shocked. And he got depressed when one of the students argued with him: "Why should we get interested in a British newspaper if they rarely publish something about Mexico? Let's focus on Mexican papers..."
Mediocrity has to do with a low, narrow scope. Hélas!
