    That has a small de-centralized government and yet has a standard of living anywhere near as high as ours.


    Can't do it? Hmmmm...I wonder if that is because they do not exist. Ron Paul cranks sell this hum bug that if you get government "out of the way" the magical markety will provide for everyone. These people are like the communists that think we should do away with the free market. Both are morons!

    What was so bad about the standard of living here before government grew so large?

    Keeping in mind of course, that anyone's opinion of a specific standard of living is subjective..

    How absurd and self righteous to assume that the global "standard of living" scale is equal to the american standard of living in all parts of the world. Very stupid, very compulsive. Typical and predictable blind american behavior if you ask me. Not everyones "standard of living" peaks around the ability to buy an ipod or drive a car. Moron

    There are literally dozens of de-centralized ethnic groups around the world who have and have not adopted western cultivation whos standard of living is relative. Some say they rival any industrialized part of the world. Egalitarian centered government that is not part of the global financial system does not equate by default, third world standards of living.
