This chapter discusses the question of whether the Mexican Revolution is dead. It was during 1946 when a number of changes occurred: the Party of the Mexican Revolution became the Institutional Revolutionary Party. It was initially intended to be the guardian of the Revolution, but it eventually became a party of corruption and insider rule. Due to a number of other failings that occurred in Mexico, the revolutionary ethos of Mexico lost its dominance.
