“The Santa Muerte has no interest in the moral qualities of the favours she grants. She sees no difference between a plea to cure cancer and a petition for help in robbing a bank. She does not care if the request comes from a teetotal grandmother or a substance-abusing murderer. The crux of the cult is to be on good terms with death, because death comes to everybody, whatever they may look like, whatever kind of life they may have led, and whatever their intentions may be. The Santa Muerte becomes not only a representation of destiny, but a possibility of negotiating a stay of execution” (Jo Tuckman, Mexico, Democracy Interrrupted, 137). Apparently not a lot is known about the cult, which is diverse and multiple, and placed well beyond either morality or politics. The question that comes up for me is, is this a religion (and what is a religion?), or is this precisely infrapolitics in action? Or is it infrapolitical religion? If anybody can help with good bibliography on it, that would be great.
