The Darién Gap

In my continuing series on “Just how stupid are people?“, we come to the question of the Darién Gap. The much heralded Panamanian Highway that goes from the North Pole to the South Pole has just 1 teeny tiny problem, 66 missing miles between Panama and Columbia. Effectively rendering the other 30,000 miles pointless. You cannot travel by road from North America to South America. You can build a highway across 30K miles of impossible terrain but 66 miles through jungle is a deal breaker? You just built over mountains and through the rest of the Central American jungle, why not this part?

It makes no sense. Until you look at who benefits from this absurdity. Its similar to why Latin America will never have drinkable water.  Why it will always give diarrhea to someone from the United States. There’s too much money to be had by owning the bottled water concession. There’s too much money to be had by forcing people to fly or take a ferry around the gap.

Reading articles and watching documentaries on the gap provide no insight. They promote “environmental concerns”  as one reason. Oh? You just plowed through a thousand miles of Central American jungle starting at the Mexican border and now all of a sudden with this 66 there’s a “concern”? Globalists only want globalism if it benefits them.

Another reason posited is drug trafficking. Yeah? That’s true, we’ve had drug trafficking for a hundred years, what’s that got to do with not finishing the highway? “Guerilla groups”. FARC (The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia). The world stops because of criminals? Besides that FARC has not been listed as active since 2017!

I think it comes down to the fact the Panama Canal provides 10% of Panama’s GDP, and they sure as hell don’t want to lose that to truck traffic. THAT’S what it comes down to. Follow the money. Almost any José with the desire can get a truck, the shipping magnates don’t want that.

Its kind of like “free trade”. When you go on vacation you should be able to buy and bring back anything you want from Latin America,  right? Duty free? Tax free? Let me know how that works out. Flooding America with goods produced by dollar an hour wage people, that’s free trade. Corporations get free trade, not you. So go ahead globalists, make north and south 1 America. I’d rather live in Panama anyway. Let’s expose Latin America to trade unions, clean water and the rule of law. Let’s do it.

[“At its fullest extent the Pan-American Highway is a network of roads stretching from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, to Ushuaia, Argentina, a distance of around 48,000 kilometres (30,000 miles). According to Guinness World Records, the Pan-American Highway is the world’s longest “motorable road”. However it is not readily possible to drive all the way since the route is interrupted by the 160 kilometre-wide (100 mile) Darién Gap between Central and South America.“]

{I think a lot of the reason for not completing the highway would be the mass evacuation from South America. The exodus would be so great the corrupt “leaders” would be forced to finally deal with the problems that are endemic to the region.}
