    Jason, I’m new to the blog, but like it alot. I’ll likely post a piece in the next week or so about the Russian-U.S. START treaty, and there are PLENTY of other things I’d love to share my thoughts on. Props on the health care comments I think you’re spot on.Report

        More seriously, I need to get one of those icons next to my name in the comments. It might help with my ongoing identity crisis.

        Also, a Neighbourhood Army of 5,000 community organizers ain’t never gonna fly in the United States. Sure, we elected one community organizer president, but 5,000 of them just sounds like a legion of busybodies.Report

    I personally feel the most inconsistent part of Cameron’s philosophy is his strong belief in localism, with his support of British membership in the E.U.

    How is Britain supposed to devolve more power to localities when the entire country is going to become increasingly dominated by Brussels, especially now with the Euro crisis of the PIGS has led to a consensus that more “economic governance” is needed.Report

    It seems to me that people calling for civic localism should be taking a much more passive role than an active role in fostering it. Don’t people sort of gravitate towards that sort of society when they need it? It seems like seriously curtailing the duties of local and federal government would clear a space for civic society to flourish.Report
