I visited Colonia Vianna in the Mennonite area of North Mexico. It far exceeded my expectations. This is where I want to live.
I had expected a farming community with many people using horse and buggy. This is what one sees in the Mennonite areas in America like in central Pennsylvania. But this is not what I found. There were no horse and buggies. These Mennonites generally have no problem with technology but they mostly retain their conservative religion. The area presumably started as a farming community. But as the valley filled up with farms, they moved to food processing. This involves technology and is much like a factory. I saw a very high tech apple processing business. After Mennonites mastered this, they moved on the general manufacturing. The road between Rubio (Colonia Álvaro Obregón) and Ciudad Cuauhtemoc is a rapidly growing industrial center full of new factories. This is like something I would expect to see in China, and something that no longer exists in America. These factories are all run by Mennonites and use cheap Mexican labor. This combination makes them very efficient.
The Mennonites are much like Americans were before the 1960s. They are conservative Christians, intelligent and enterprising people. They are the opposite of modern scum. And they are not passive like American Mennonites.
Most of the Mennonites speak 4 languages: Low German, High German (regular German), Spanish, and English. One can easily get by here with just English. I spoke to people in English and Spanish, and they just responded in whatever language I used. Mennonites generally speak Low German in their homes.
The Mennonites absolutely refuse to wear masks. Most Mexicans wear masks. If a Mexican store required masks, Mennonites simply wouldn't shop there. The result is that all stores are forced to accept people without masks. Of course the Mennonites also refuse the vaccine while the Mexicans eagerly get jabbed.
Food shopping is done the old fashion way. There is the butcher, the baker, the dairy shop, etc. All food is completely fresh. The meat in the butcher shop came from a cow killed locally that morning. You can buy raw milk. And so on. No supermarket corporate food.
This area is largely self-sufficient. It is still mostly farming. If the world collapsed, this area would do just fine.
There are drug gangs in the area that control different parts of Mexico. Occasionally they have wars and kill each other. But unlike governments, these drug gangs are considerate to the general population and warn people if a drug war is coming. The result is that there are no civilian casualties. It is much better to be governed by a drug gang than by a (satanically controlled) government.
I hadn't thought about this while there, but looking back I didn't see any police or pointless road work. The government really seems minimal there, unlike in most places where the government works hard to destroy freedom and block roads.
The climate is cool and dry. It isn't desert. It is grassland with scattered trees.
This area is 5 hours drive from El Paso, TX. This means that even if flights start requiring covid passports, Americans can still easily drive here. If you want to fly, you can fly to Chihuahua City which is 2 hours away.
This truly is the ideal place for a conservative exodus. But I really hope that normal American scum don't move there. I don't want alt-right morons, Trump supporters, or other degenerates of the modern Right. This place is for people with real traditional values.
