It is an amazing experiment the one done by Jesuits in this area of Southern America. Communism driven by religion. And it worked. I recommend everyone to read all about the experience and to seethe movie on this.

It is absolutely mind-boggling to think that a handful of Jesuits were responsible for organizing and educating the local Guaranís so they could build, decorate, and run these huge missions in the middle of the jungle, far from everywhere. The small museum at the entrance...More
