The Libertarian Experiment, Continued

Interesting NY Times article about Mohamed Aden, who emigrated to the United States at the age of 22 but returned to Somalia 15 years later when the elders of his tribe offered to make him their leader. He has been finding the job easier than he expected:
But however playful or flamboyant he may come across, Mr. Aden seems to have hit upon a deeper truth. People want government, he says, even in Somalia. “They’re begging for it,” he said.
And for all you former and current Minnesotans out there:
“We needed a man of peace and he is from a peaceful place, Minnesota,” said one elder, Mohamed Ali Farah.
