So only crazy people want government and those who love anarchy are fighting for justice? That is logic that looters and occupiers of land have.
Somalis rebelled and stood up to such systems led by such men. Through the last 17 years of civil war and insanity, the Somali business community thrived astronomically thanks to no government intervention of the market dynamics. There were no taxation, no tariffs and no limitations of trade and commerce. Thousands of Somalis abroad also contributed a hefty amount of money into this unregulated and booming market.
Somalis rebelled a dictatorship. Any Somali would tell you that. Only people who are making a crap load of money thorugh illegal means would tell you they don't want to be taxed. Taxation helps build schools, hospitals, and security apparatus. Those who don't want this are something else.
Call that whatever, but that is what most Somalis want. No corruption, no nepotism, no big brother. Some Somalis are natural born entrepreneurs, while others are lazy leechers. The ones who advocate for government are leechers who can't earn their livelihood in a free-market based economy. They have limited creativity and probably were never thought to work to survive. These are here with us in the Diaspora and sit idle and collet welfare.
Free market or not, having a government in whatever form is the way the world works. No government means there are no schools. Atleast not free ones, that I suspect you have taken advantage of in the west. Only the rich survive in Somalia (Relative to Somalia). Your average Cambarro and Cali will not be educated which in turn leads to a whole generation like the generation we've had for 17 years.
Government's have been taxing people since forever. Cumar ibn Khattab (RA) enforced this well manshallah.
The business-minded Somalis are working hard as professionals, rising college kids, buying trucks, have investment pools and travel as far to China, Hong Kong, Thailand and have their financial base in Dubai. Somalis are venturing to open business opportunities in remote places as Mali, Chad, Gabon. Some are even braving in the gang-filled slums in South Africa to run shops and make money. None of these people want to see a big government in Somalia.
Notice that these Somalis are making money in places with government. The only ones who benefit from no government are the scrap merchants and looters who occupied and filled there stomachs with 17 years of Xaraan ku naax lacag and bililiqo.
