  1. Yes, government is as good for economies as the maffia a competing government like organisation that steals wealth in return for “protection”.

  2. You are a great man with visions and actions. That’s why you inspire me, and this is what I have learned from you. Thanking you is too little to acknowledge your contribution.

  3. Can somebody explained to me, because I do not understand it :)( i am 15 year old boy, so it was quite difficult to understand his idea)
