    It sucks when you run out of other people's money. Best not to become dependent in the first place.

    If they only understood that its taxpayer funded civil servants, firemen, police, teachers, and social service bureaucrats that make an economy prosper ...........

    Heck, all they need to do now is borrow, print, and increase their debts on "infrastructure" projects...

    Yep.

    Anarchy is a far better system, eh?

    Ah..the good Somalia life..

    Anarchy does not mean chaos. That's a false notion implanted into the minds of the people to be sure they keep strolling along in Statist land.

    its literal translation is - no crown. Where monarchy is - one crown.

    Not that I'm surprised that so many believe anarchy means complete chaos lacking any social order. The statists thank you for your support of their monopoly on societal rule.

    It's also hilarious that you believe the only option besides socialist central planning, is chaos.

    That's funny.

    There are libraries all over and an internet full of information wealth. i suggest taking advantage instead of regurgitating hyperbole and nonsense.

    Far better than what?

    I can't speak for anarchists but I would say "no", anarchy is not a far better system than other options out there. I will say that a representative republic that limits the federal government to a few enumerated powers via a Constitution that ensures individual liberty and property rights is a far better system than anything else out there, including typical European socialism, dying on the vine as we speak.

    Could the economic situation in Europe possibly be a breeding ground for another Hitler and the Nazi Party?

    Think about what led up to World War 2, the 20's and 30's, the Great Depression and how the world treated Germany after World War 1. As things continue to get worse economically in the world, hard pressed countries like Greece, Spain and Italy could produce another group like the Nazi Party just waiting for that one circumstance, that one event to propel another leader that takes advantage and thrusts the world into another World War.

    Countries would then have to pick sides and in the middle, being pulled in all directions would be the United States.

    Am I just being paranoid? I most likely am.

    I'm a classical Liberal. But i lean towards the ideas of anarchists. many believe in voluntarism, self ownership and private property. I'm with you on this one though. I prefer a republic constitution with a govt. that has few enumerated powers that are clearly defined and are upheld.

    Socialism never works. But i do find it quite amusing that the diehard socialists are unwilling to accept that fact.
