My Dream Is Coming True!

In Madagascar, of all places! Apparently everyone is ignoring the new president’s orders. No violence necessary, just people saying, “How bout, no?”

ANTANANARIVO, Madagascar — Mayor Andry Rajoelina, who over the weekend claimed he was now running this island nation, had a disappointing first Monday in “power”: the ministries he ordered closed remained open; the civil servants he told to stay home went to work; even the children he allowed to skip school studied at their desks.

Now the guy who tipped me off to this, Charles Featherstone, clarifies that there is actually a lot more to it than a Rothbardian Great Awakening. But in that case, I don’t want to read the rest of the story.

Incidentally, Rajoelina should realize the way to cement your rule over the inhabitants of Madagascar is to get some swagger and put on a show.
