Apparently, a democracy is a place where numerous elections are held at great cost without issues and with interchangeable candidates.

Then they determine whether owning is a better financial choice than renting - are the costs of owning a home lower than the cost of renting it?
Environmentalists should like fracking for its relative cleanliness. But they don't. They have made a bugaboo out of the chemicals in fracking fluids, which supposedly can leach into groundwater sources. I'm convinced they're dead wrong. Ultimately, good technology with a cost advantage will win out over paranoia.
The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
Henry David Thoreau
It's better to be good than evil, but one achieves goodness at a terrific cost.
Measles is probably the best argument for why there needs to be global health, and why we have to think about it as a global public good.

Modern medicine has presented us with a Faustian bargain: Our aging bodies can bankrupt our children and grandchildren.
