Submission + - Why No High-MPG Diesels For The U.S.?

gbulmash writes: "While looking for a high-MPG minivan, wagon, or SUV, I've been finding that the pickings in the U.S. are pretty slim, but that there are plenty of fuel-efficient diesel models in Europe that get even better mileage than some of the larger hybrids for sale in the U.S. With the U.S. having so many people driving so many miles, it seems ridiculous that even Ford is offering highly fuel efficient diesels in Europe that they don't/won't offer here. Is there an actual plausible reason why these models aren't being brought to American markets aside from "marketing objectives"?"

Comment Re:Anarchist Affiliation? (Score 1) 1509

It seems to me that an individual can identify themselves as an anarchist, and choose to join and associate with others who believe in a similar fashion. They could even band together to share their ideas. I think it would only become a hipocracy when the 'Anarchist Party' starts passing laws AND enforcing them on those who don't agree, don't wish to be a part of, or subject to - the 'Party'.
