Finally, Europe's economic problems are almost entirely related to various counties having a common currency but not a common political system. There is a major lesson to be learned there, but it has little to do with taxation.


I think both the Nazis and The Communists tried resolving that, each in their own way. Didn't work out too well. What they had in common, was to forbid anything but one common political system, which also entailed one party controlling the election process and administrative decisions and reducing all others to disposable fringe elements.
