How the state helps the most powerful. Jock, Anarchoblogs in English (2011-06-09).
People moan lots about Tesco; about their seeming endless ability to land bank; their willingness to take over local businesses and "Tescopolise" whole towns. But they rarely think about how it is in fact the very state apparatus that so many see as a bastion against the so called "excesses"...(Linked Friday 2011-06-10.)
