CHAPTER III - Fortieth Birthday

`Who is like that?' said Kate. `It bores me. One must keep a certain balance.'
`Not in Nlexicol' said the young Mexican brightly, his plump cheeks flushing. `In Mexico you can't keep a balance, because things are so bad. In other countries, yes, perhaps you can remain balanced, because things are not so bad as they are here. But here they are so very bad; you can't be human. You have to be Mexican. You have to be more Mexican than human, no? You can't do no other. You have to hate the capitalist, you have to, in Mexico, or nobody can live. We can't live. Nobody can live. If you are Mexican you can't be human, it is impossible. You have to be a socialist Mexican, or you have to be a capitalist Mexican, and you hate. What else is there to be done? We hate the capitalist because he ruins the country and the people. We must hate him.'
`But after all,' said Kate, `what about the twelve million poor - mostly Indians - whom Montes talks about? You can't make them all rich, whatever you do. And they don't understand the very words, capital and socialism. They are Mexico, really, and nobody ever looks at them, except to make a castes belli of them. Humanly, they never exist for you.'
`Humanly they can't exist, they are too ignorant!' cried Garcia. `But when we can kill all the capitalists, then -'
`You'll find somebody killingyou,' said Kate. `No, I don't like it. You aren't Mexico. You aren't even Mexican, really. You are just half Spaniardsfull of European ideas,and youcare for asserting your own ideas and nothing else. You have no real bowels of compassion. You are no good.'
The young man listened with round eyes, going rather yellow in the face. At the end he lifted his shoulders and spread his hands in a pseudo-Mediterranean gesture.
`Well! It may be!' he said, with a certain jeering flippancy. `Perhaps you know everything. Maybe! Foreigners, they usually know everything about Mexico.' And he ended on a little cackling laugh.
`I know what I feel,' said Kate. `And now I want a taxi, and I want to go home. I don't want to see any more stupid, ugly pictures.'
Off she drove back to the hotel, once more in a towering rage. She was amazed at herself. Usually she was so good
