Re: Food shortages in Venezuela

You must concede, doc, that America's recently achieved self-sufficiency in crude oil production has made it so much easier for the US to boycott purchases of Venezuelan crude. http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2018-12/13/c_137669737.htm HOUSTON, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- The United States exported more cr...

The Catholic Church’s Battle Between Rhetoric and Reality

At which stage nobody would think of committing suicide by using stra...

Re: A parable about wealth

Very good parable. It brings a more relaxed life but your economy won’t progress much. Yes, but the fisherman would be spared finding himself on the corporate treadmill accumulating ulcers with no obvious way out. The point you seem to miss. He may be spared corporate induced ulcers. But he won't b...
