About the poster “American way of life” Mauricio tells us “The idea of well-being and social development have been the constant promise that has permeated the policies of emerging peoples for several decades, reminiscent of the” other American way of life ” , (putative brother of the “American dream”) become a nightmare with currently standardized edges, adapted to continue spreading the preaching, making use of collusion as a setting and dignity as a bargaining chip. The degree of satisfaction is proportional to the disguise of the voracious consumerism, raise crows and have your eyes gouged out, kill to live, live to sell to the highest bidder, everything has a price, it is the law of supply and demand. When I say America, I mean the continent “.
