Big Government, Socialism, Gun Laws, and Godless Society
Saw this elsewhere on the Internet, and thought it was brilliant.
If you dislike big government, taxes, gun laws, health insurance, and the rise of secular society, here are three places to consider living.
(1) Somalia. Don't like government, gun laws, taxes, or mandated health insurance? Then Modadishu, Somalia is the place for you. The effective absence of government yields free trade without taxes or regulatory expenditures, but comes at high cost to civil society. Businesses have hired armed militias to provide security against gunmen. This has lead to a gradual reduction in open street violence. However, high levels of crime including frequent murders and occasional bombings are still rampant in the city. No gun laws. No taxes. No government. Just war lords fighting it out in the streets. Have fun trying to stay alive.
(2) Saudi Arabia. Don't like secular society, and think the role of religion should play a greater role in daily life and government? Saudi Arabi is just what you need. Criminal cases are tried under religious law in this country. These courts exercise authority over the entire population including foreigners (regardless of religion). The Saudi legal system prescribes capital punishment or corporal punishment, including amputations of hands and feet for certain crimes such as robbery and adultery. The courts may impose less severe punishments, such as floggings, for less serious crimes against public morality such as drunkenness, or entering the incorrect type of visa.
(3) Sweden. If you hate big government, taxes, gun laws, health insurance, and the rise of secular society, Sweden is your worst nightmare. It is one of the most socialist, and secular countries in the world. It also has some of the world's highest taxes, and much stricter gun laws than the U.S.A. What are the outcomes of big government, high taxes, gun laws, and secular society? Sweden has some of the world's highest rankings for life expectancy, productivity, heath, and quality of life (all much higher than the U.S.A.). It also has some of the world's lowest violence related deaths.
