One of the political, economic and social movements that occurred in America between 1910 and 1920 is, without a doubt, the Mexican Revolution. The ideal for young people was to displace the 30-year Porfirian dictatorship. The workers dreamed of legislation that would offer them a modicum of protection against abuse by the powerful. The peasants wanted land. If it had had a well-defined ideology, it could have been of the same importance as the French or Russian Revolution and serve as a guideline for the liberation of many peoples who in the rest of the vast continent were in a similar state.
