    First, I'll apologize to PF if I'm posting too many video's, but I'm on a kick of late and hav the time to indulge in curiosities.

    The video I posted below is an interesting study in an old question- which is better, government or anarchy. In this case, the study is of Somalia, and even for me, I was as surpised by my ignorance and preconception of the current state of the country as I was about what anarchy would mean. To be short, it is obvious that no government would ever support an anarchy and would forever condemn and ridicule one where it could not destroy it.

    Here is an interesting analysis on Somalia, for those who like these sorts of things...
