Meet the Man Who Claims He Just Founded a New Country in Europe

Welcome to "Liberland"
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I wonder if any of these proposed "citizens" is planning to give up the services of the countries from which they come. It is easy to have a tax-and-law-free country if you can turn elsewhere for policing, healthcare, old age pensions, enforcement of contracts and courts, etc. My guess they are going to try to mile the other three "real" countries for those services. I hope that the Czech Republic, Serbia, and Croatia all charge for providing those services that are provided, especially if the people of Liberland don't pay taxes to their home countries. The small hidden countries of Europe like Monaco and Lichtenstein are only able to exist because of the support and indulgence of the larger countries in which they are set, France and Spain.

ISIS’s Black Flags Are Flying in Europe

The symbol of the murderous Islamic State is waving in The Hague. ‘Death to the Jews,’ shout the demonstrators. Yet the Dutch government authorized the protests.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Call it the fear of politicians or an inherent problem of democracy; either way European governments and people may yet be the hapless victims of the worst of Arab rage and distorted Muslim fanaticism. Nigeria, Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, and now even the streets of The Hague: the extremists of Islam are spreading terror and waging war. Sadly, the vast numbers of Muslims are (just like those Dutch politicians) too hesitant to take a stand and throw the hate-sowers out.

Lutz Bachmann, who was reinstated through a secret ballot, led several thousand people on a peaceful march through the eastern city of Dresden.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

It is no surprise that haters support a hater. Obviously and sadly, the German people don't remember the horror their capacity for feeling superior and hateful wreaked on the world in the mid-twentieth century.
