A reader suggests where to find a nation-state where the government truly leaves you alone to do whatever you want:

As I have read here and there on the blogosphere, if you really want a truly individualistic, no governmental “interference”, no taxes kind of society, go to Somalia.

On the other hand, I’ve also been reading about man-made nation-states on the high seas. Presumably, when they don’t get what they want, all the pooh-bahs will pack their bags and become expatriates on a floating gated community. If this works out anything like ed reform, they’re in for a rough ride (hurricanes anyone?).

Education reform is a scam, of course, but very few people will be headed to Somalia, they’ve convinced folks they can have their cake and eat it too. With any luck maybe wise people can turn this around!
