The First European Settlers Were Spanish not English
When our history books were written they dramatized that the first European settlements were in New England. Because the books were written by English descendants. But in fact it was the Spanish who were the first European settlers in the Americas long before the first Thanksgiving. This video takes you to the first Spanish settlement of Europeans on the continental United States. This video is not about the Native peoples who were in the Americas for millennia before. It is about a Spanish settlement.

The Public University of El Alto: Anarchist Collegiate Education
When writing about the mutualist anarchist community of FEJUVE, one of the things people might be asking is how the educational system works in the libertarian society of one hundred fourteen thousand. Well, there were schools that were made to educate the people of FEJUVE including the Public University of El Alto. This particular university was established back in September of 2000 and has been going strong for twenty-two years. Edurank ranked this particular college to be the fourteenth best college in all of Bolivia, which is pretty good considering the fact that this particular ranking has fifty-three Bolivian colleges.
Aymaran Traditional, VPS, and Anarchist Policing in FEJUVE
I have previously written about FEJUVE: a mutualist anarchist society that allows people to live in a community without a monopoly on violence & have a direct say in their community while still enjoying the luxury of owning local businesses & property they occupy/use. I also talked about the problem with policing under statism: that police are given certain powers that can put them and their friends/immediate family above the law without offering any greater protection for their community. Now, people are probably wondering how police would operate in a society without a strong vertical hierarchy or monopoly on violence. To explain any of this, we first need to look at the Aymara: a native group that exists in Bolivia.
