They bear one common name, and yet they vary, and, talking, modulate the voice diversely.
Comments 5 Winston Churchill once said, "A young man who is not a liberal has no heart. An old man who is still a liberal has no brains. Liberal egalitarians want everyone to share more or less equally in the output of the economy regardless of their skills, education, or how hard they work.
Any serious study of economic history show that societies become wealthier when individuals are allowed to keep as much of what they produce as possible. The only way we know to ensure that people become wealthy by providing valuable goods or services is to insist that they persuade customers to purchase from them voluntarily.
At the same time, government must ensure that other individuals or businesses are free to complete by offering better products for less money. Government's proper role is to use its power to insist that businesses do not grow large enough to raise prices beyond what a more open market would bear.
We have a few monster banks which are too big to fail. They grow fat because the government has written so many rules for banks to follow that smaller banks can't keep up with the rules and go out of business.
With fewer competitors and less competition, big banks are free to raise their prices. In a competitive market-driven system, no individual can become seriously wealthy by providing goods and services all by himself.
While accumulating his billions, Bill Gates hired many people because he was not able to do everything his customers wanted by himself. By helping him produce great value for Microsoft customers, so many of his colleagues became so wealthy that the term "Microsoft millionaire" was coined to describe them.
The utter economic failure of collectivist solutions, known either as communism or socialism, is equally evident. None of the farmers worked particularly hard because everyone knew that the crops would be divided evenly after the harvest.
There was no point in extra work because all would share equally regardless of effort. The colony nearly starved to death during the first winter. They quickly realized that collectivism wouldn't work and switched to a system where each farmer got to keep whatever he grew.
The problem of slacking went away, and the colony became a success.
The Pilgrims has traveled to America for religious liberty, in contrast to the Jamestown colonists who came simply to get rich, but both colonies experienced the same profound realization: This was also obvious to our Founders - they put protection of property right up there with protection of life and liberty.
Communist ideology of collectivism was far too strong to let farmers keep their crops from more land and food shortages persisted throughout the Soviet era.
One of our readers traveled to Cuba via Canada to join the Venceremos Brigade to help with the sugar harvest. The Cuban workers did not want him to cut more cane than they'd convinced the government was the maximum possible.
Being warned by a crowd of machete-wielding colleagues that anyone who cut too much was likely to slip, fall, and be badly sliced by a machete convinced him to work at the agreed, slow pace. Toward the end of the season, they told him that they'd seen his skills improving and wondered if he'd like to really go at it to see how much he could do.
On the agreed day, a team stood by to take away his extra cane. When the sun went down, he'd cut five times the usual quota without working particularly hard. He returned to the US firmly convinced of the value of individual incentives and the futility of collectivism in any guise.
More recently, we have the example of Venezuela which has squandered the wealth from one of the largest oil deposits in the world. Toilet paper has become a luxury good and even the New York Times admits that people are starving.Science in the News Opening the lines of communication between research scientists and the wider community.
Taken at a literal level, this is a story of how sustainable farming practices can nourish families and the earth simultaneously. On a deeper level, it is about social justice and self-sustaining economies, which make this a book that can span a broader interest level.

The. The word indigenous means “originated in”, and thus the term “indigenous religion” means “the original religion of a place.” Essentially this term is applied to the group of people of any religion, culture, or area.
The indigenous religion is a unique religion associated with the particular group. Posts about crops written by cehualli. A Few Aztec Riddles. Watching the Hobbit in theatres last weekend got me thinking about riddles.
