by Prof. Peter T. Leeson. As there is little information on anarchy states to be found, this is important, as the coming global collapse will force most governments bankrupt, along with it’s peoples, and out of business. As GOVERNment will no longer exist, we’ll have anarkos (Greek — without a ruler), perhaps worldwide? Will mankind then finally learn to live by it’s rational mind, with moral principles?

Driving on a flat tire will destroy the tire and the rim will soon follow. One would think that even a bureaucrat would grasp that, but we can only imagine that’s “too simple”.

So simply withdraw your support… This means …
On Greece: “While some may doubt that this can happen in America, I would warn that this thinking is devoid of reality and downright naive. Not only could it happen here, but the level of government intervention and government control of the citizenry should it happen here, could very well be widespread.”
