The Enemy Within; Selective Governance Practises, Belize’s Greatest Security Threat

Shared with full consent from Paco Smith Abstract Threats to Belize’s security are often conceptualised and cast as emanating from external elements. Indeed, with the looming existential threat of Guatemala and its unfounded claim to […]


The Hypocrisy of Guns, Crime and Abuse in Belize

This article contains multiple pages, look for the page lists after the Related Articles section. While I agree that guns should be something controlled, I also believe that there should be a freedom for people to own guns and that it should be applicable to all citizens, not just some with a few special people able to have their way. In Belize there is a tendency that people tied to the ruling Government of the day get to have special privileges and can be above the law just like the politicians if they are close enough or have connections to […]

International Borders Origin Dates

This was originally posted on Reddit by PisseGuri82 who I’d like to thank for bringing our border date to international light. So, I was recently in a discussion about what is the oldest border. That’s not a hard question in itself (it’s Andorra). But what about number two? And three? And what’s the newest? And what regions, or which continent, have generally older or newer borders? I figured this had to be available information somehow. I was partly correct. Researching this has been painstaking, because a lot of the sources are fuzzy. Even the facts are fuzzy, different cultures have […]
