  •  dude i have been to Conakry (7+ / 0-)

    4 or 5 times for my job. i am just like you in my reaction: i wish i could show this place to some libertarian pinheads and then, maybe, possibly, they could see the light.

    it is not necessary for libertarians to hypothesize about utopian outcomes based on the libertarian models in their heads. the libertarian experiment is being run right now, by accident, in many parts of the world. and you don't want to be in those parts of the world, i guarantee it.

    when i get back from Conakry, or Sierra Leone, or Niger, my favorite thing to do is go to the biggest grocery store in town. and just stand there in the middle of all the plenty and be grateful.

      I've been going back and forth for so long, yet it still gets to me when I come home that I can turn on a light switch and see.

      Did you hear about Glenn Beck's Galt Experiment? Sheesh, I hope he reads my diary!

        is one of my simple pleasures when i return from the 3rd world. and yes, all day electricity with no blackouts is a pure delight!
