The results: The old government was destroyed and the Mexican revolutionary government put in its place radically different social and economic systems. This new government recognized labor unions and peasant organizations and made them a part of the state-party. Land estates were taken from the wealthier and divided up among the peasants. A new Mexican business grew based on banking and manufacturing rather than land. Mexico was still capitalist but it was a mixed economy.

The Russian and Mexican revolutions both had similar goals. Sparked by Lenin during the failed 1905 rebellion, the Russian revolution of 1917 wanted many changes and freedoms that the current tsar, Nicholas II, could not offer them. The people demanded that the current imperial hierarchy that kept Russian serfs in slavery be destroyed and replaced by Lenin’s tweaked Marxist government (later tweaked by Stalin into modern day Communism). The Russians also demanded the public ownership of land as well as all means of production. On the other hand, the Mexican...
Second, the first stages of revolution occur through a series of events showing dissatisfaction, which is met by a failure from the government to restore authority. Thirdly, a new government starts forming, executing former leaders, which causes a struggle of power between the moderates and radicals. Fourth, the struggle of power will continue and extremists will attempt to access power in the government through acts of violence. Finally, the government gradually re-establishes a new equilibrium to return to normalcy under the protection of the “people’s man.” In a case like Chiapas the revolution happened to a new change in policy. Due to Mexico’s close relations with the US, it is under pressure to remain a democracy. Although the government feels that a democracy is best fit for the nation, the people feel that they would benefit more from a social government. This can cause a conflict of interest to developing nations. A developing nation takes it as a priority to increase growth and increase trade and exports to more developed nations, which allows supranational entities and developed nations to control government and market
Emiliano Zapata a leader in the Mexican revolution. He was born august 8, 1879 in the state of Morelos, he was considered a mestizo. At a young age Emiliano lost his father so he had step up and help care and provide for his younger siblings, which in some way helped contribute to the fact that he grew up with a protecting behavior always. Zapata was an early follower of the movements against Diaz and the government he was running, therefore in 1910 when the Mexican revolution began the people of his pueblo elected him to be there movement leader. He became the leader of farmer revolts that were happening in the state of Morelos.
Mexico, a country filled with diversity and culture, has endured many political changes and threats throughout the course of history. Prosperity, independence, and democracy were prevalent during specific time periods in Mexico. However, Mexico faced a series of conflicts, economic distress, and inequality that led to political instability for many years. Ultimately, Mexico overcame these challenges to have a secure and stable government.
The Mexican revolution started on November 1910. This revolution ended dictatorship and it started a constitutional Republic. Some sources say that this revolution ended in 1920. This revolt was led by Francisco Madero, Pascual Orozco, Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata. The revolution started when mestizos(half indigenous and half Spanish blood Mexicans) rose up and fought a violent war. They wanted to overthrow the President Porfirio Diaz. Another cause was poor treatment of workers and great space between the rich and the poor. This revolution happened in Mexico. The capital in 1910 was Mexico City and it hasn’t changed since then. The people believed that they had the right to own their land, not the U.S. They did push for a social reform.
This documentary called “The Storm that Swept Mexico”, talks about one of the most important events in Mexican history which was the Mexican revolution which started on 1910 and lasted for about 10 years. At first this video starts talking about how Mexico lost a major part of their land in Mexican American war. The states that Mexico lost were Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, and California in 1848, by president Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. Moreover, another war mentioned was the one Mexico had against France called “Battle of Puebla”. After this atrocious war Mexico had 20 years of peace until the Mexican revolution in 1910 took place. This very interesting video dragged my attention due to the fact that it explains precisely every important figure that was involved in such a big movement. Furthermore, in this fascinating video I learned a lot of interesting facts about Porfirio Diaz. For example, he is the president that lasted 30 years in power, and was the president number thirty to rule Mexico. Another interesting fact about this iconic figure is that his period as Mexican president was called the “Porfiriato”
He did this by not giving his people freedom of speech, in fact that was unacceptable and intolerant. In Mexico the poor suffered tremendously, while under the leadership of their mean and horrible leader Diaz. President Diaz forced away the poor people of mexico into a debt trade system. During this revolution, evolved a variety of new artists. These new artists consist of visual arts, current literature, and music. Besides all the bad during the revolution it induced new genres and varieties of art. To go into a bit more detail on these artistic evolutions, such as music, Corrido a type of folk music had been created during this horrible revolution. Also, visual creations had become something. Evolving into the mexican muralist movement and finally, with current literature, writers like Azuela created some of latin america's most celebrated literature. This may not be the most important factor during the revolution but it has still played a part in the war’s
The Mexican Revolution was 1910 through 1920. The people of Mexico wanted the right to vote. The dictator Diaz said that they would be ready for elections by 1910. A man named Madero decided to form a political group to beat Diaz in the upcoming election of 1910. The group’s slogan was “effective sufferance and no re-election.” When 1910 came around. Madero would’ve probably been the president of Mexico. But to remain in power, Diaz fixed the election and had Madero arrested. He was later released and when he was he fled to Texas. It was there where he stated that he was the president of Mexico and with that write up a revolutionary document which said to form a revolt on November 20, 1910. He was unsuccessful with his revolt. Although not
As this is one of the most important historical events in Mexico history, I will speak about the Revolution. Consequently, I will expose two important points to show its importance: it changed the national political scenario one and for all, and it was one of the most important changes in the aspect of the laws, not only in Mexico but all over the world.
The institutionalization of the Mexican Revolution between 1920 and 1940, Established a new understanding of what it meant to be Mexican.

Diaz was an army officer who had come to power by a military takeover of the government that was quite popular with the people. Unlike a vast amount of rulers that came before Diaz, he forms a strong political system that in a way represented the constitution of 1857. The governing systems work with the political bosses controlling the elections along with the public order with a small amount of powerful families. The governing system catered to the 1% and any high-ranking government officials witched caused wide spread with corruption. The system was maintained and constructed by outside money from companies aboard.
