COMMENT: I hope these blogposts are useful. Perhaps they can be of some historical use for a future researcher. It is not comprehensive, just stuff I pick up and save here while I am on the Internet. Many of us of La Raza Cosmica are invisible to the masses of peoples in Nazi Amerika, but we number in the millions, more than can even be counted.

Many of us are of the quiet laboring working classes either in the domestic indurty, in your agricultural fields, in your city streets or even in your own backyards. We are of a beautiful diverse people with different skin colors, different languages and definitely different cultures. We are of the original indigenous native peoples of these lands. We are called Chicanos more in the U.S. southwest if anywhere. We are called Latinos as a general category, though there is no one Latino Nation. We are of the Western Hemisphere indigenous to the Americas: North, Central and South America, including the Antilles.

Many of us identify with our nation of origin, although the truth is there are no sovereign independent nations under the reign of the Amerikan Empire. Those places or areas we tend to think of as nations from long historical usage are actually internal or external colonies of the Evil Empire. Thus, any claim to nationhood is a fantasy, not an actual reality.

In fact, the U.S.A. is not even an independent democratic nation, despite all the lies of fascist mass propaganda. The U.S.A. is itself an internal colony of the Evil Empire. There is no true authentic democracy in terms of majority rule by the people inside the United States. A true demoracy requires more than a paper document.

Democracy requires the mass direct participation of the people in governing themselves with the land and all the viable institutions upon the land under their direct control. More will be revealed if your minds are open to the truth of revelations.
