The Nation We Have Today The book is not without its weaknesses, in my humble opinion. For Guillermo Bonfil Batalla, the remaining Indian communities, the “de-Indianized” rural mestizo communities, and vast sectors of the poor urban population constitute the Mexico profundo.

Batalla argues that Mexico needs a new birth of freedom based on its Indian culture and that years of European domination have failed to lift the nation out of its poverty and corruption. Bonfil called for a cultural pluralism where the pre-Columbian cultural patrimony and practices be implemented, and that the failed Western models be rejected, or at least that they share space with a pluralist culture where people depend on each other and not on the imaginary culture, the imaginary Mexico that has never existed.
