A Stan of Their Own

My former Cato higher-up and living genius, Tom Palmer, is lecturing on liberty in Kurdistan, one of the many 'Stans you can't find on most maps. (But I found a map of its possible dimensions here.)

He's having Hayek's The Road to Serfdom and Bastiat's The Law and What is Not Seen translated into Kurdish.

I think the Bastiat stuff is great (especially What is Not Seen, which sums up liberal economics as well as anyone else has in 200 years), but The Road to Serfdom, I find a little too dense to serve as a good political tract. Or even an intro- text to classical liberalism.

In any event, our hearts go out to Palmer for his important work.

I have concluded the following:

1. I hate Kurds.
2. I hate the French.
3. I like insta-nation.
4. I like Iulia.

Interesting post on Kurdistan...

I know more about Kurds than many Americans.. I can not help it as my wife is a Kurd (I'm American).

Keep looking around the internet... there are far more examples of maps of Kurdistan out there... especially late 1800s and early 1900s... there are offical western made maps that SHOW "Kurdistan".

There is a precident.

There are sufficient reasons.

The Kurds need a state, a nation, an officially recognized place of their own.
