Saw this on the Mises blog. Really interesting presentation.
Its cool to see how even in guatamala with all those ethnic and language differences, immense poverty, and all the BS thats gone down there *cough* nixon/CIA *cough* they manage to provide for law and order. Amazing that a case could be resolved in only 1 day. Although I would like to know why the state courts were so bad. I can see statists watching this movie and saying "yeah but if there were a stronger state this wouldn't be necessary". Missing the point completely of course, but nonetheless. Also, the issue of justice never really came up. Someone could commit a crime and then just agree to be exiled. I personally don't have a problem with this but people tend to plead fairness as a justification for government control.
Thanks for the post LS. Enjoyed it a lot.
