La reacción del privilegio (estudio acerca del movimiento politico-religioso encabezado por un grupo de henequeneros yucatecos disidentes)
Mexico: Imprenta L. Escalante, S.A., 1918

This pamphlet, The Reaction of Privilege, discusses the reactionary movement of henequen producers who resisted various reforms of the Mexican Revolution. The author describes the plantation system that existed in Yucatán as essentially feudal and compares the planters to those in the Southern United States at the time of the Civil War, who did not wish to lose the economic advantage of slave labor. He also alludes to contemporaneous events in Russia. He says that thanks to leaders like Felipe Carrillo Puerto and Carlos Castro Morales, indigenous workers today receive better pay and better treatment.
