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

The notion *anyone* can be “in charge of a major European economy” is itself comical, a statist fantasy. Indeed that is very much at the root of the problems currently playing themselves out.

    Indeed. i think it’s time for old King Cnut to rise a little in public consciousness. There’s some good anagram/pun potential in there too.

  • Hmm

    Hah! Being put in charge of a major european economy is one statist fantasy I can side with. If anyone is to be in charge please let it be me – well for a few days anyway would be nice. Oh the fun I could have… If only I can get my hands on it before the “Aliens fix it” (Link)

  • Thanks Hmm, that video is hilarious 🙂

    The fallacy is in the very word – “economy”.

    The vastly complex trading and production relationships between million of people is not “a household”.
