Building a Mini-State With Avocados and Guns

“There is something intoxicatingly utopian about the story of Tancítaro. This small town has succeeded at self-rule in a part of Mexico — the state of Michoacán, drug war ground zero — where so many similar experiments have failed. It is free of the drug cartels as well as the Mexican police and politicians who are widely seen as part of the problem. It has homegrown institutions. It is safe.”
