Shady deal involving Canadian Atlantic Fishery

A shady deal involving Canadian Atlantic Fishery (h/t Jeff Rowsell) Something is rotten with the state of the fishery in Canada’s Atlantic provinces and family members of Canada’s Liberal Party using a back-room deal to corner a lucrative chunk of the harvest of Arctic surf clams, giving indigenous interests competition by non-indigenous interests. It is not that federal Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc did not know about the shady deal being made: Tories ask ethics commissioner to probe fishery bid they say favours Liberal insiders Company behind winning bid is run by the brother of Nova Scotia Liberal MP Darrell Samson John Paul Tasker · CBC News · Posted: May 07, 2018 6:10 PM ET … Continue reading

Rente retten

Rente retten – Dieser Auftrag einer neuen Kommission von zehn Experten macht Claudia Kirn Sorgen, und sie (mit allen anderen Rentnern in Deutschland, wie auch in allen anderen entwickelten Staaten) ist berechtigt sich darüber Sorgen zu machen. “Die deutsche Gesellschaft überaltert, vor allem wegen der stark steigenden Lebenserwartung,” stellt der Spiegel Artikel fest.  Nee, wirklich?  Ist das Problem nicht, dass nicht mehr genügend Arbeitnehmer produziert werden oder dass sie ungenügende Steuern zahlen, weil die Arbeitsstellen nach Südost Asien and andere Länder exportiert wurden? Was die stark steigende Lebenserwartung angeht, die Behauptung ist leider stark übertrieben, da die Realität sehr stark von den übertriebenen Erwartungen abweicht. Nach dem Institute for Health Metrics … Continue reading

Parkinson’s Law — Its various forms make society creak

Parkinson’s Law (a.k.a. Parkinsons Law), and some of it variations and roles in the context of the gradual decline of the efficiency and effective operations of governments, were described by C. Northcote Parkinson (* 30 July 1909 – † 9 March 1993), when he presented his first law (and some others that are derived from or relate to it), “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.” That was in a 1955 essay published in The Economist, an essay which is accessible online.  Here is the beginning of it (click on the image for the rest): That essay is short, but – because it became very … Continue reading

Second-wave feminism causes harmful fallout

….previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series Fallout from second-wave feminism Second-wave feminism is liked by many, but it is definitely not all good, far from it. “May you live in interesting times,” is a popular expression. Well, we now live in interesting times, as we watch ten-thousand years of civilization’s evolution reverse or at the very least go into unexplored, dangerous territory. The traditional nuclear family had for 10,000 years been the basic building block of society.  It had been in a symbiotic relationship with civilization.  It can and should be argued that the traditional nuclear family, in the greater context, is civilization. The … Continue reading

Divorce hurts Children, a million more in the U.S. a year

Divorce hurts children: “Each year, over a million American children suffer the divorce of their parents. Divorce causes irreparable harm to all involved, but most especially to the children. Though it might be shown to benefit some individuals in some individual cases, over all it causes a temporary decrease in an individual’s quality of life and puts some “on a downward trajectory from which they might never fully recover.”1 Divorce damages society. It consumes social and human capital. It substantially increases cost to the taxpayer, while diminishing the taxpaying portion of society. It diminishes children’s future competence in all five of society’s major tasks or institutions: family, school, religion, marketplace and government. The reversal of the cultural and social … Continue reading

Consumers support economy — Economies need consumers

Without consumers there is not much of an economy.  Work produces goods and services.  Consumers buy goods and services.  When more and more of the people’s jobs are being mechanized, more and more people will have trouble finding employment.  That problem is aggravated through accelerated immigration from under-developed nations (instant consumers, rather than having to wait 20 to 25 years of waiting for the home-grown variety to come on-line).  Without a lot of jobs and people filling them, there won’t be many consumers who can buy goods and services. A collection of concerns, with links to articles in which they were expressed: Automation and mechanization have liberated many people from having … Continue reading

Naming Mountains and Ideologies — the Real and the Ideal

Mountains and ideologies are named by people who think they rule, occupy, own or were victorious over them. Ownership changes, as do the names. Love is an ideal thing, marriage is real. Confusing an ideal with what is real will have unexpected consequences. The confusion of the ideal with the real happens in love and in war, as well as with any other ideal and ideologies. Ideologies have consequences as soon as someone wishes to turn idealistic pipe dreams that are more or less-well thought out into reality.  Even just trying to get a start at  some of the things that some people wish to get into motion will cost … Continue reading

Love, Family, Law & Order, Civilization

The regulation of human sexuality produced the heterosexual family as well as the inter-generational transfer of property, knowledge, social traditions, and it resulted in the creation and refinement of laws and governments. The regulation of human sexuality was the beginning of civilization, the symbiosis of all of those things and those that grew out of and because of them: clans, villages, towns, nations, empires, societies, and more traditions and laws that made them function more smoothly. Civilization refined itself over the course of 10,000 years.  It evolved into something great, gradually caused living conditions and the quality of life for people to become better and better, as well as  ever … Continue reading
