  1. (the other) quiggin makes a lot of sense, but sense doesn’t matter as much as one might wish. the decision to go to iraq was made for reasons never made public. i suspect megalomania would sum them up, although people whose personal fortunes depend on oil and munitions might simply have done it for the money.

    i read ‘the decline and fall of the roman empire’ as a young lad, and was amazed that incompetent and quite insane persons could find themselves at the head of empire. i was comforted by the fact that the usa would never be in such a position, as the election process would produce good leaders.

    well, i was young. and wrrroong.

  2. amazed that incompetent and quite insane persons could find themselves at the head of empire

    One more reason to long for limited government. Limited government means limited incompetence and limited insanity.

  3. terje, you might be happy in barrygoldwaterland, google ‘direct democracy arizona’. that’s the closest i can find, but if i discover any state being run by the solipsist philosophy, i’ll let you know.
