Senor Don Gilberto Valenzuela and a forgotten part of Mexican history
V
Time Magazine, March 25, 1929: “England is nicer in lots of ways than Mexico, so much nicer that last week the civilian leader of the latest Mexican Revolution, Senor Don Gilberto Valenzuela, must have devoutly wished himself back at the Court of St. James's, strutting again in silk knee breeches with a cordon across his chest as Mexican Envoy Extraordinary & Minister Plenipotentiary. Instead he was desperately striving in the state of Sonora, first to bolster up civilian support for the army of his chief-of-staff, General Gonzalo Escobar, and second with the forlorn project of despatching to President Herbert Hoover a request that the ten most northerly states of Mexico be recognized as having seceded from the Mexican Union, and as constituting the Republica Mexicana de Obregon.” — continues •••

From Ricardo Valenzuela: “Yes, my uncle was the Mexican version of Jefferson Davis….he was a man of an incredibly honesty, integrity and courage. When he was secretary of state and Calles was president, Calles wanted to impose a candidate who has lost the election as governor of the State of Mexico. When my uncle told Calles that was not right, Calles answered, I don’t care, this one is my friend and he is going to be the governor. My uncle told him, well Mr. President, you will have my sign resignation right now. Calles answered, I will not accept it because I still trust you. But my uncle then told Calles; but I do not trust you anymore Mr. President. And Calles was a real killer who everyone fear all over the country.”

March 20, 2016: while thinking about integrating forges, the phrase El Zorro Norteño, developed in conversation with Ricardo Valenzuela, has become active.

See The New World of the Gothic Fox, by Claudio Véliz. Such foxes exist not only in the Anglosphere, but also in the Hispanosphere, perhaps especially in Northern Mexico.

387 Realist and Nominalist — Baroque Hedgehog and Gothic Fox — Claudio Véliz

Jim Bennett has asked: “Zorros góticos del norte contra los erizos barrocos del capital?” (Gothic foxes of the north as opposed to the Baroque hedgehogs of Mexico City?). James C. Bennett is the author of The Anglosphere Challenge, 2004, source of the idea of network commonwealth.

There will be need of integrating forges spanning the gaps between freeordering cultures. Such a forge in the gap between the Anglosphere and the Hispanosphere, weaving inter-cultural fabric of freeorder with threads taken from the U.S. and Northern Mexico might be fruitful. An excellent location for such an iForge would be a free zone spanning the border of Mexico and the United States, perhaps hosted by a tribe of Zorro-like Native Americans.
