Freedom's Fidelity

The Belmont Club is conducting a fascinating discussion on the social dynamics of terror cell sizes and the inherent trade-off they must make between functionality and security. The conclusion I reach is that the most meaningful resource to deprive a terrorist network of is state sponsorship. Go read the whole thing though, as per usual with the Belmont Club, the comments really advance the discussion in some interesting directions. Think law of diminishing returns, hierarchal structures of teamwork, chaos theory, anthropology and much more. It's posts of this quality that, on their own, justify the existence of the blogosphere.

Go read it already.
