  1. But how can you think that, and this:

    “Can you name a work of non-fiction which has had a major and lasting influence on how you think about the world? > Robert Nozick’s Anarchy, State, and Utopia. This classic of libertarian political philosophy is flawed, but Nozick’s thesis set me thinking about the right balance between individual and community.”

    And then want this:

    “If you could effect one major policy change in the governing of your country, what would it be? > The complete dismemberment of the United Kingdom, and the integration of the home nations into the European Union as independent republics.”?

    The EU is 100% community, 0% individual, is that the right balance?
