The purpose of this essay is the construction of explanations about the basis of public welfare programs in the context of the crisis of the model of equal positions and its replacement by a model of equality of opportunities, where individual merits play a central role. This allows the study of the Mexican welfare state and its impact on the reproduction of a fragmented society, characterized by the existence of exception situations and vulnerability.
