The problem here is that legislation and regulation doesn't come about for the benefit of you and me, it's designed to benefit the policy makers and corporate executives who work hand in hand for mutual advantage. And the only way to avoid that is for there to be less political power for them to grasp.

Running would suck, but it would suck less than thirty years in a medieval federal prison. It probably wouldn't suck less than six months or a year, though, which is what he was realistically looking at. And it would suck a lot less than being dead.

But that's just my opinion, and it was his call. RIP.

That's interesting, because I was guessing you would say one of the 'Stans or something like that. English language media make it sound like Slovenians are much better off today than under Tito, even that Slovenia has its act together relatively speaking, which is why it was the first of the former Yugoslavian countries to accede to the EU. Would you say they're wildly off base?
