We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

This Week’s Practical Exercise in Democracy? Invading Luxembourg

Imagine the European People’s Democratic Front.
Imagine their first press release…

We, the people of Europe, hold the following truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. Unfortunately, we don’t consent to a junket-ocracy, which is what the proposed EU will be.

As such, we undertake to occupy and subvert any referendum in Luxembourg, a country with a conveniently tiny voting population of less than 350,000. One residential mailing address (with 50,000 registered residents) later, and the constitution will be consigned, where it belongs, to the dustbin of history.

Naw, it could never happen…

    Off topic, but has something happend to the Samizdata templates?

    All the posts are line-wrapping in a non-reasonable manner, making the posts too wide to read sensibly (1280×1024, IE6, XP Pro).

    This used to not be the case…

    Maybe so, but lets face it. The real power is in the People’s Democratic Front of Europe. The European People’s Democratic Front are just splinters.

    Naw, the People’s Democratic Front will be first up against the wall when the revolution comes.

    I’ll see your Life of Brian, and raise you one Hitchhikers Guide.
