Laissez Faireholm Regional Message Board
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.
State Decentralization - These percentages are determined by allocation of tax money to local cities, however before criticisms are raised,, it very much does correlate with the level of individual freedom:
New Hampshire 0.62475539
New York 0.540915308
South Dakota 0.514664958
New Jersey 0.503867865
Rhode Island 0.483462474
South Carolina 0.459566438
New Mexico 0.382245601
North Carolina 0.366066432
North Dakota 0.312465478
West Virginia 0.29895431
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...
Quote of the day
"A free market is the only way to control corporations. As long as government has the power to regulate business, business will control government by funding the candidate that legislates in their favour." - Dr. Mary Ruwart
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.
