Little Friedrich & Uncle Sam

E assim canta Ben Parizek:

Little Friedrich & Uncle Sam

Take 3

When I was a kid I had a few questions
Like how to walk and how to kick
Was I conceived in liberty?
What’s the use of knowledge in society?
At first I queried then I poked
Amazed and leary, brimmed and stoked
Then Uncle Sam took my hand
And said, “You’re looking stellar you mild Fabian.”
While he justified his grip
I pulled away and ran from him
To the Privatseminar and on
To some coffee house, here’s what I saw
People communicating
The universe, the kosmos mating
An organic compound of benzol rings
The lattice of a crystal’s strings

I saw order
Spontaneous order
Hey Sam, get your visible hand off me.

I gasped aloud yet Sam grabbed my arm
And insisted that I don’t be alarmed
He said there could be competition
He said he calculated with precision
“There’s no taxis in these galaxies
The wind carries us quite happily,”
I said, “No Sam, competition is a discovery procedure!”
He did not understand, of course
I tried to explain, however, verbose
The double negative, after all
Has yet to be banned by federal law.
With a firm hand on my shoulder
Sam showed me his campaign hats and price controls
He offered to subsidize my thoughts
As I pulled a way again, he looked shocked

I want order
Spontaneous order
Hey Sam, get your visible hand off me.

I ran, I fled his crooked stare
Until I stumbled upon Ms. Lacy Faire
As fine a form as one need see
To be free to choose, and choose to be free
Lacy and I chose to get together
With a few good ideas and a few good friends.
Amongst us all and amongst us some
She’s who embraces our decisions.
As Sam carried on down the road to serfdom
I found myself in Switzerland
Between the firm, the market and the law
On the shores of Lake Geneva, here’s what I saw
People communicating
The universe, the kosmos mating
An organic compound of benzol rings
The lattice of a crystal’s strings

I saw order
Spontaneous order
Hey Sam, get your visible hand off me

Por que as ONGs deveriam obrigar a Índia a não se urbanizar?

Aprendam com o titio:

Today, there are more than 4,000 gaushalas – a haven for sick, abused, or abandoned cattle – throughout the country. Federal law has long recognized the need to support the animals that Hindu scriptures refer to as the “most efficacious cleansers of all.” But now, as rural lands vanish, cities burgeon, and quality of life indicators spike for millions of people across the subcontinent, the fate of India’s cows has become uncertain.

Mas….por que preservá-las?

There are also practical reasons to value cows, he added. They have long provided people with labor as well as many daily necessities: milk, curd, and butter for nutrition, and dung and urine for fuel and fertilizer. Because they generated so much from eating only grass, cows became valuable economic commodities.

They remain so today. In 2001, India’s cows produced an estimated 93 tons of milk, more than any other country in the world and about three times as much as US dairies reported, according to New Delhi’s Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying, and Fisheries.

E por que as ONGs deveriam se preocupar?

Whether farmers keep it for their families or sell it at market prices, dairy is important to a country where more than two-thirds of the population still dwells in rural areas. That’s why Indian animal rights groups are advocating veganism. Only when humans stop relying on the commodities cows produce, say activists like Mr. Bafna and Ms. Sawhney, will there be an incentive to control the population.

Em resumo: mais vacas, menos pessoas. O próximo passo é pedir para mudarem o PIB per capita para PIB per vaca.

Bovinamente, digo, lentamente, a urbanização muda as prioridades. Schumpeter diria algo como: mudou, dançou. Nestas horas, o custo de oportunidade de alguns sobe muito e o perigo é que os burocratas se aliem com pregadores do atraso.

Difícil decisão. Mas, como sempre dizem, nenhuma cultura é estática. Ela muda mesmo. Não tem jeito.
