Monday Morning Questions

Why is air free? Was hasn’t someone put a price tag on this abundant element which is necessary for human survival? Most everything else in life has a price tag.

Some might say you cannot control air therefore you cannot commoditize and sell it. But if you think of it in different terms, as in: What if you polluted all the air and concurrently developed a gas mask that would filter out the pollutants? Now you’re making money!

But is the point of life to make money or to breathe?

Also, why do I reflect on things such as this? My 25 year old brain should be thinking about peace, love and rock ‘n roll, not how economics generates potential social calamities.

I have a lot of questions on Monday mornings.
