And when sa journalist asks Obrador about what kind of real strategy to combat organized crime, will he use on case of winning the election, he usually claims to be mistreated by the press to evade the question.
“I am convinced that the problem in Mexico is not just a crisis due to the lack of material goods, it is also a crisis due to the loss of moral, spiritual and cultural values”, Obrador stated.
“Therefore, we need to promote a new current of thought where the most important thing is honesty and love towards the others.” He clarified that his approach has nothing to do with religion, and emphasized that he was talking about non-religious precepts of pre-Christianity,” (Whatever that means).

“Yesterday with businessmen from Tabasco, today with those from Yucatan and tomorrow Quintana Roo. In Mexico, it is necessary “to promote the creation of a state of morality, we must moralize the country. If you are a religious believer or not, it doesn’t matter, it’s about family values not believes: Honesty, respect, love for your neighbor.” López Obrador concluded.
