Money can’t buy happiness, and the quote seems extremely relevant if a person takes a look at Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, the drug lord of Mexico. The trials in the court of law showcase a lesson to the entire world to that easy money in the world does not bring happiness to sustain life. This is precisely what Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said this week on the trial of El Chapo on Wednesday.
This week on Tuesday, the Jurors have found that Guzman is guilty of 10 different counts which also includes the crime of running a steep criminal empire. The inception of the trial dates back to 2018 November and took place in America’s Big Apple. The president was reportedly asked about the conviction of Guzman.
President Lopez Obrador said that the entire trial should be taken as a lesson of finding true happiness, true happiness in life is not about bank balance, and happiness is not materialistic, fame or even luxury. Obrador said that people should not wish anyone else ill. He wants to tell the people who have undertaken this path is to step back and reconsider the consequences. The most important thing is to understand that in life, freedom is essential.
Lopez Obrador came into being as the President and took control of the office in the year 2018 back in December after he received an overwhelming victory in the elections. It was only in the previous month that the President has declared the drug war in Mexico was over. He also vowed to implement a new strategy for security which is much more focused to bring down the records of homicide and throw over the kingpins of the nation. The 65-year-old president is dependent on the country’s military to fight crime. Lopez is trying to build a New Mexico.
