THE SUM OF THEIR NATIONAL IDENTITY IS THIS...........


— S. Mintz



At its core is a feeling that

The Island is a socio-cultural entity,
That It functions as a unit,
And that It has problems
which must be solved in Insular terms.

Ricardo E. Alegría wrote:

"Among the values that characterize us as a people are:

  • our deep sense of humanitarianism, expressed in the national habit of compassion for the less fortunate;
  • a deeply rooted conviction of human equality, manifested in our racial mixing and exemplary social coexistence;
  • a constant tendency towards justice, the basis for our love of democracy and freedom;
  • a vocation for peace which has made our people one of the most civilized in the world;
  • a devotion to culture [that] is grounded in the centuries-old Puerto Rican interest of schooling and education, and
  • a tradition of simplicity, which enables us to recognize and value spontaneously all that is good, noble, and great in other peoples."
