What are your thoughts?

Personally I support Bukele, but worry that his success in co-opting the full power of the nation underpins a deeper problem with the inefficiency of traditional democratic systems, and that it could lead to more oppressive regimes down the line.

Discussion One unifying theme of the Americas?


What, as a cultural identity, unites or creates a commonality between virtually all countries in the Americas? If you had to create a "creation-" or "society mythos" for the Americas, what do you think it would be?

The only I can think of is the main building blocks of most countries, in that virtually every country in North America, the Caribbean or South America seems to be that, to varying degrees, influenced by populations and cultures from three continents: Europe, Africa or the Indigenous American populations.

Some countries have more influences from European cultures/customs (i.e. Canada, Argentina, Uruguay), others more Indigenous (i.e. Bolivia, Guatemala, Peru, etc), others a mix of European and Indigenous (Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela) or European and African (United States, Cuba, Brazil, Puerto Rico, etc) but virtually every country in the Americas has at least one of these continental cultural influences, most more than one. Maybe that can be a cultural mythos of unification.

I would also say almost every country in the Americas at least TRIES to live off of an idea of cultural pragmatism, tolerance and live and let live. Some countries worse than others (conservative parts of the US and certain Caribbean countries) on things such as LGBT or women's rights, but at least the overarching concept of egalitarianism exists, in theory.

But what would YOU personally say ties all or most of the Americas' together, regardless of language, continent/region or outward phenotype?

Less wishy-washy more concrete: What can Panamericanists do to further this goal?


Speaking from an American perspective, what I've done to accomplish this:

Immerse myself in local and foreign Spanish communities (having lived in Colombia for a year).

Learn about and appreciate the indigenous peoples' histories of the United States.

Participate in international volunteering programs (we lift all of America up, together).

Encourage activism in torn countries like Haiti, and encourage other Americans to follow similar steps.

What other things, specifically policy or cultural wise would you guys like to see for the advancement of this movement?

Discussion Would you support a North American/Caribbean Union?


Would you support an EU-style economic and political union between not just Canada, the United States and Mexico, but also eventually the countries in Central America and Caribbean (assuming they see significant economic investment and crime desecration in the future) down to the Panama Canal?

Hello, I've got an idea for a project.


I'd like everyone to come together on the discord server to help organize and create a few maps and corresponding charts to represent the structure of a federated/confederated Pan-American Union.

Some concepts we should develop:

  • Preserve existing national identities to placate nationalists

  • Need US style representation to make small countries feel important

  • Adding more subdivision levels to avoid a bloated bureaucracy

  • Divide countries into smaller chunks, with size matching

  • Need regional governments (e.g. La Plata Government, Central American Government)

  • Division of US area to make other nations feel secure, without angering American patriots

  • Ignore districts for other purposes to have an efficient system (e.g. Watersheds, Native Americans)

  • Federal Protections for Jungles

  • Massive anti-corruption bureau with strict entry requirements

  • Ability to make laws only applying to certain regions or to exempt regions from laws

Edit: Also thanks to u/laserPointer24 for creating the template
