Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed Mexican actress Selma Hayek for a decade. She finally spoke out in a NYT article,
Harvey Weinstein Is My Monster Too.
I had already mentioned that I’m done with the sex scandals, since they are a distraction from the great moral question of our times, but I’ll make an exception.
Clearly, it took a of of agonizing for Hayek to come forward. As the wife of one of the richest men in the world, she must have decided that it’s worth the trouble to do so now.
But she had nothing to lose had she done it sooner.
Not to be nit-picky,
it was unimaginable for a Mexican actress to aspire to a place in Hollywood.
Hayek forgets Dolores del Río, who 92 years ago made her first Hollywood film. Del Río’s house, designed and decorated by her second husband, Cedric Gibbons, is an Art Deco classic.
Back to freedom, the great moral question of our age,
I highly recommend the other Hayek, who famously said,
We must face the fact that the preservation of individual freedom is incompatible with a full satisfaction of our views of distributive justice.

Re; Economist F.A. Hayek
A smart thing the State Department could do is select some up and coming Latin American leaders and provide them a Fulbright type scholarship to study economics at Universidad Francisco Marroquin in Guatemala City. They would learn about Hayek and others from the Austria School of Economics. Right now all that is been taught in most universities is Keynesian re-distribution, big government economics. Here is the Wikipedia about the university.
Excellent idea, OT!
And don’t miss their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/newmediaufm

Thanks. I did not know they had a You Tube Channel. I took a look at You Tube and saw they have several about F.A. Hayek. Here is one.
