Emergencies erode freedoms

To people steeped in collectivist ideals, there is nothing wrong in confiscating the wealth of others, or in selectively conferring rights and privileges on one group of people at the expense of some other group of people

The events in Cyprus, and in Europe, should be a warning to us.  We consider the EU to be a social democracy, similar to our system. In many respects it is, and that is worrying.  We are not far behind the Europeans in abdicating all individual responsibility in favour of more government. Western governments watching the reaction to the EU’s thefts of Cypriot’s property are emboldened.
