Lithuanians back new euro currency amid Russian tensions

A change in my libertarianism:

Defense is collective. So, under threat from Russian imperialism, E. Europe readily joins the EU bureaucracy. This is not only rational, it is moral . . . because (I think) morality is tied to survival.

Liberty is a privilege created by violence.

A mid-November poll found more than half support the euro as opposed to only 41 percent at the start of 2013.”—
