when a blade of grass rises above the others, do we applaud it? No, we cut it down.

No need to read all of these articles. But it's a little round up of people fleeing extreme liberal areas that have collapsed, and/or increasing various liberal mandates causing people to flee. Essentially atlas has started to shrug (not really because people are fleeing to some secret location, but rather to less liberal locations around the world, but the effect is the same for liberal areas.

New York
The states in general

You'd think there would be some sort of lesson here. About how being super liberal and having giant governments causes states to collapse. It happens over and over throughout history, the Soviet Union being the most obvious example. Meanwhile what is government that has collapsed from being too small? I guess you could argue that countries that lost wars should have spend more on bigger armies, but i think for the most part countries spent everything they could on wars and then collapsed from not having anything left to spend, not from not spending enough. Hong Kong and other small government countries are doing pretty good right about now. But what lesson to liberals learn? Obviously they failed countries haven't been spending enough money on the government because if they had been everything would be dandy. More government spending for all.

Hong Kong is no longer a country, thanks to the British being pussies.

I don't know why they would sign 99 year leases in the first place. That whole thing seems weird to me.

It's because they're afraid of the consequences, so they set things up so that the consequences come after they die.
