Five -isms to Fear

Czech President Vaclav Klaus is a real economist with a Ph.D. from the University of Economics in Prague. He took part in the Velvet Revolution and helped make the Czech Republic a successful market economy.

Klaus recently warned about "the emergence of non-ideological but very agressive 'isms,' which are really quite new."

Klaus said, "I see the current all-embracing legislation influenced by the powerful special-interest groups representing the new 'isms' to be a real danger to the liberty of all of us."

We could also add "healthism" to the list, with the efforts to ban soft drinks and Fluff in schools, the broader campaign against obesity, and the misguided attempts to cover the uninsured.

Their soccer team is very good, too.
 
And yet, didn't make it out of group play. At least the U.S. is in good company.
