Another socialist leader facing opposition
The thing is that socialists always need something to feed on. But shit hits the fan when - as a result of their thoughtless, well-meaning actions - they run out of victims (usually rich people). This can be prevented by not allowing socialists to feed on producers in the first place. Granting autonomy to cities and states is one way to inrease the autonomy of an individual. Maybe the Dutch in Flanders one day realize to get rid of their blood-sucking southern neighbors.
Btw, I have moved some of my blogging (in Finnish) to Vapaasana.net. I'll keep the less civilized stuff here.
