Yet shouldn't some 'libertarian' right-wing Americans be pleased about the
absence of a powerful central government in Somalia and be particularly
happy about the absence of regulation of guns? In Somalia laissez-faire
market forces apparently rule! Anyone with enough money can buy a gun.

What a 'libertarian' laissez-faire utopia!

I thought liberals were left wing, all for freedom and such?

Only few I wouldn't visit are Somalia, South Sudan, Chad and at the moment Congo although there's a volcano in Congo that I really want to see. Have no desire to go to a few others but not because of safety reasons.

Originally posted by Duchess64I think it's unfair to have South Sudan on the list, it's just became a country. Of course it's going to take some time. Also Iraq is only struggling because of America, Afghanistan as well. Plus where the hell is Israel on that list? Surely a country just by it's creation that has caused countless wars should be considered a 'failed state'.
It seems questionable to label a society as a permanently 'failed state'
(like several in the list) simply because it's going through a civil war.
I suppose that if this list had been made at the beginning of 1865, the
Confederate States of America should have been a 'failed state' too.
And, indeed, the CSA did not last much longer.
