Why didn't Spain ever "Mexicanize" in the same way that Britain Americanized?

Why didn't Spain ever "Mexicanize" in the same way that Britain Americanized? Why does it seem like Mexicans and Spainiards are so much more removed than Americans and Brits are?

      Mexican culture is way more influencial than Spanish culture is. In fact I don't even think Spain itself really has a culture.

        No it's not moron. Everyone know Don Quixote, Don Juan or El Cid but nobody read Mexican literature. Spain is the second most visited country on earth after France. Spain film and music (even if they're shit but so is everything these days anyway) are far more popular too.
        The only place where Mexican culture is more influential is in the US and essentially because of affirmative action, and even then I wouldn't be so sure.

          Okay, and Mexico is in the top 10 so I don't see what your point is.

          Spanish "culture" is completely irrelevant, even your most relevant examples like Don Quixote are just European fantasy. Everyone knows about Mexican music, aesthetics, history, and cuisine.

            Holy cringe anon. Crying about it won't make it any less true. I don't even like the music or aesthetics, but pretending that they're not easily recognizable in most of the US is crazy.

            Americans know about those things but you overestimate Americas ability to project the cultures it is fascinated with to the rest of the world through Americanization. Cinqo de Mayo is one of the most American holidays because I was shocked as a Canadian that this was a thing that Americans celebrated. The Mexican aspects of your culture are the stuff that is going to remain uniquely American for awhile going forward.

            only via the proxy of the united states of america and their shared history and relations to you, and only through the lens of their perspective on your entire country and whatever parts of your culture they deemed relevant. lol.

        Mexican culture is basically transplanted Spanish culture you imbecile, you sound like the people who claim there is no American culture even though it's easily the most influential culture in the world

        America is a superpower and it’s entertainment industry dominates the world. Mexico isn’t any more or less influential than Spain.

        Mexican culture is only popular because there’s a large Mexican diaspora. Nobody listens to Mexican music besides Mexicans. Compare that to a small island like Puerto Rico.

    Mexicans are mixed-race mutts who have a corrupt government and descend from a violent culture that practiced human sacrifice, nor are they an economic power. It's no wonder Spain didn't want to import that.

        Uh, yeah, I'm pretty sure Mexicans don't give a shit about any of their laws or institutions. They just kill and rape each other for fun.

        Spain has mostly been a clusterfrick since losing its colonies so their laws and institutions + Aztec blood is a bad combo.

      Guadalajara is where all that ~~*culture *~~came from. Other parts of Mexico like Oaxaca are completely different (and better)

    The whole world is Americanizing so Britain Americanizing is not merely some inevitable product of reverse colonization but rather just part of the general trend of Americanization which might be slightly accelerated by a shared language. So the other colonies simply lack the soft power to pull this off.

    Beyond that you also have three other factors.

    1. The relative size of Mexico (127M) to Spain (47M) is less than USA (332M) to the UK (67M) as it is 3:1 rather than 5:1
    2. The cumulative size of all the other Spanish colonies creates a counterbalance creating a multi-polar hispanophone world that Mexico cannot easily solely dominate as they don't just need to overcome Spain, they also need to overcome Colombia, Argentina, Cuba etc
    3. Mexico is poorer than Spain on per capita basis while the USA is richer than the UK on a per capita basis

    Instead you really should be asking why Portugal is not being Brazilianized because those three factors are working far more in Brazil's favour as they are both alone and far larger relative to Portugal and closer in terms of wealth as Portugal is still wealthier than Brazil but is also one of the poorest countries in Europe rather than a mid-tier country so the difference isn't as great.

    My guess is that whereas traditionally, most Americans up until recent decades have been majority English or at least broadly British ethnic groups in heritage, having more in common with the people of England and the British Isles at large, and having largely reconciled their Colonial Age differences by the 20th century, the people of Mexico often seem to have a love-hate or like-dislike relationship between their Native indigenous heritage and their Spanish colonist heritage, which may understandably resonate less with Iberian Spaniards, causing more of a rift in differences. Some Mexicans much prefer their indigenous ancestry, whereas others much prefer their colonial ancestry, though most are probably somewhere in between, in reality. The two aforementioned camps are merely loud enough to be heard and read.
