Why free trade is win-win
So long as two people make an exchange voluntarily, it’s going to be win-win. If I trade $10,000 for your used Volkswagon Beetle, it’s only because I must think the car is worth more than the money, and you’ll only sell it to me if you think the money is worth more to you than the car. Otherwise, neither of us would make the trade. That means, in making this voluntary exchange, we’re both better off than when we started – we both believe we’ve gotten more than we had before. That means business, as it is normally done, makes both parties wealthier.
Jesus on the age of the Earth
It’s so clear that Jesus believed in a young world, that the only way leading theistic evolutionists can reconcile His statements with their old Earth views is to say… He got it wrong.
How the US government exasperated the baby formula shortage
Tariffs and restrictions on European brands have limited American alternative supplies.
“Bureaucrats in DC no doubt will tell you their formula is the correct and healthy one, while bureaucrats in the EU almost certainly would contend they have the right mixture of ingredients. This invites an important question: who actually has the best baby formula for infants, the EU or the US? Many may think they know, but the economist Thomas Sowell reminds us this is the wrong question. ‘The most basic question is not what is best, but who shall decide what is best,’ Sowell says.”
The war in Ukraine and the myth of overpopulation
Russia has lost thousands of soldiers in their invasion, and “the majority of those poor young men killed for Russians honor will be their mother’s only son, in many cases their only child…” Why?
While we still hear fearful mention made of the danger of overpopulation such fearmongering has Russia shrinking by more than 100,000 a year, and every continent but Africa is facing birth rates at near or below replacement rate. Why then does the fearmongering persist? Because this anti-natal ideology is in rebellion against not simply the facts, but God. Because He says children are a blessing, our culture persists in treating them as a curse.
What else fueled the Buffalo shooter?
The man who targeted blacks and killed 10 people this last weekend was a racist, but what wasn’t shared is that his purported manifesto appealed to evolution as the basis for his racism.
Is college worth it?
If you’re going to college and university to get a good job, then it’s worth considering what sort of return you’ll get on your investment of 4 years and tens of thousands of dollars (not just in tuition, books, and rent, but in deferred income you would otherwise have earned if you were out in the workforce).
“If you get a degree in something like Art, Music, Philosophy, or Psychology, there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to be worse off financially than if you’d never gone to college at all.”
