8.4 The Spatio Temporal Fix

Based on the above analysis I will present the spatio temporal fix for which Salinas, through his informes, sought to achieve a general consensus. I will contrast this with a hypothetical fix proposed by EZLN, based on the introduction of the data.

Spatio/Temporal Globalisation

Chiapas National
Global (worldwide) Strive for a better Mexico (many Mexicos) and for a better world (many worlds)

These overviews will be used throughout the discussion on what discursive and social strategies are used to gain hegemonic acceptance for these projected aims.
