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]

Samizdata quote of the day

Voting to leave Brussels will cause your wife to have bigger breasts and increase your chances of owning a BMW M3.

- Boris Johnson, leader of the Conservative Party during the EU referendum of 2017 (as imagined by David Charter in Au Revoir, Europe: What if Britain left the EU?)

    A last—a rational argument about an important social issue.

    I’m so glad I lived to see this day.

    Huh, I just started working at Elliott & Thompson, the small publisher that publishes most of his other stuff (I literally started last week), and it’s good to see their authors hold sensible views. The one that I thought would most appeal to Samizdata readers is ‘The Mess We’re In’ by Guy Fraser Sampson, subtitled ‘Why Politicians Can’t Fix Financial Crises’. It’s a pretty pertinent look at the failures of government and deserves a wider audience. http://www.eandtbooks.com/books/?title=MessWereInThe

    I don’t think I’m at the stage of being able to wrangle free copies but I’d be willing to lend my copy to to any London-based Samizdater. Just give me a shout on Twitter (at tfjo)

    I think Boris actually said this a few years ago.

    If Britain left the EU, the EU would still trade with Britain like they trade with Straya and Seppoland.

    And how is that a bad thing?
