Liberty is not a means to a political end. It is itself the highest political end.
- Lord Acton

The ideal Government of all reflective men, from Aristotle onward, is one which lets the individual alone – one which barely escapes being no government at all.
- H.L. Mencken

The Free Confederacy of Vecherd wrote:Hahah edgy. Lots of truth in their statements but you can't really make a objective measure of happiness.


Maybe not objective happiness, but it makes sense that a nation that has lower regulations and less nanny laws has more happy people, since people have the ability to pursue that happiness easier. When law-makers and politicians ask "is this law going to increase happiness/is this law good for the community/whatever," they forget that there are a lot of people made unhappy, or can be made unhappy, with the implementation of that law, and the best way to increase "happiness" is to merely back off. As you were implying, people create their own happiness, but they need the means first in order to do so. Just like a rifle gives you the means to a right of self-defense - something which is almost worthless without it.

Also, I doubt anyone is quite happy in a nanny-state.

I think Hayek puts it best where he says that the liberal doesn't objectively know what makes people happy - or if happiness is desirable at all, but regardless that the best way to make sure of that is to allow the most freedom in making sure that people are able to guarantee their happiness - or not, if that's what they want.

Unsurprisingly, despite being neighbors, New Hampshire is the most decentralized state while Vermont is the least decentralized. Both two states are highly polarized and "ideological," New Hampshire for example has become the go-to state for libertarians (something that has already been true for a decade), while Vermont has become the poster state for progressive policies and birthed feckin Bernie Sanders.

Personally, I am sort of surprised that New Jersey was so decentralized, but it does explain why the cops in the town over me are so dang aggressive...

Correction, decentralization of power as a percentage whereas the amount of money spent by towns compared to the state.

This source is from Pileus.

Because decentralisation works extremely well. Just look at the New Jersey police system...

Oh damn. That post alone has made me entirely reconsider constitutional originalism and converted me into a centralist progressive. Burn the Constitution!!!!

Decentralising some things is good - to give individual communities more power. But sometimes centralisation is good, too, when you can pool resources and make better decisions. idgaf about the constitution lol

it's almost like there is no panacea that fits all issues and anyone that says they have one is a liar

Well, I'm glad that you've finally admitted it.
