A pretty good president because he fought to protect wildlife, even while shooting it. Or riding it.
Friends, I was recently engaged in a discussion with a gentleman who argued that while people do have a right to life they do not have a right to water.
I replied that he clearly had not thought this through…
But his statement and his further claim that water is a commodity that should be traded like gold are tied to a much larger issue.
This is the fact that many economists like to reduce the value of everything to a mere price tag.
I believe that in this they are making a rather subtle mistake: they are confusing something’s value with its cost.
