An encouraging story (by the BBC) about Somaliland - twenty years after declaring itself independant from Somalia. It has a "poor" government and the general population has a "pioneer" attitude very resistant to making their government bigger. This podcast describes several encouraging changes brought about largely through voluntary means, such as the building of a hospital using a retired businesswoman's donated funds and donated land (by government but it is implied that it was not actively being used) that was formerly used to imprison and execute. Also a new bridge is built not by government but by a community fund raising (much to the surprise of the statist reporter interviewing the locals).
