There is an example in this article of the reason I love commerce.
The article explains that Canadian oil is being shipped from Calgary to New Orleans' refineries by rail in increasing volumes. Significant increasing volumes.
This is occurring because the president of the United States at the urging of the anti-commerce environmental extremists has been banning the shipment of oil and gas through pipelines in the central United States.
Commerce, as always, ignores the stupidity and bigotry (poor people are hurt most by the environmentalists, especially in this case where oil prices are forced up) of the anti-commerce world and finds a route to solve its problems.
Oil tankers are moving through the central United States and they are also going to both coasts of Canada. Oil transported via rail is more risky for the environment than the much less expensive shipment of oil via pipelines.
I first noticed this genius of commerce when Shell oil company provided oil to Israel in 1973 when all the Arab and Muslim countries were boycotting shipment of oil to Israel. Commerce always gets around political stupidity and viciousness.
It is also via commerce that prisoners in jail and illegal institutions are able to thrive and provide their members with necessary provisions.
