Sociopolitical humor and satire have a long tradition in Latin America. Since the nineteenth century, a variety of artists and writers have contributed to its development. Mexican illustrator José Guadalupe Posada (1851–1913), whose satirical broadsides and calaveras or “skulls” provided a critical portrayal of social, cultural, and political tensions in Mexico during the Porfiriato and the beginning of the 1910 Mexican Revolution, is considered one of the founding figures of this tradition. Many other figures took this tradition in different directions up to the present.

Freemasonry had a tremendous impact on modern European history and its ideas changed not only the way of thinking but also stimulated a political discourse. In the major works on Freemasonry, however, there is a mainly European focus. Although, in North and South America the import of masonic ideas had a similar effect. The early struggle between the York Rite and the Scottish Rite would lead to later party developments and Freemasons would create a major political impact in the “New World“ too.
