This article discusses the Mexican resistance to communism. Where the Communists have obtained complete control, they did so during especially critical periods involving the collapse of existing authority during or following a world war. In Mexico, such a situation did exist in the second decade of the twentieth century, but when the Communists arrived on the scene, they found themselves thwarted by the success of the Mexican Revolution. The Mexican Revolution started its active phase in 1910 as a revolt against the strong one-man rule of Porfirio Díaz. Though it was marked by violence in various forms during the first decade, it had a good deal to show for itself by the time the Russian Communists began sending their propaganda and their agents out into the world.
