  1. An excellent summary of why bleating “I wish it wasn’t like this” is useless.

    I suppose the best answer that’s been tried before is to sell the extraction rights in exchange for royalties and use that money to try and develop an economic structure that can support the populace. Unfortunately, didn’t work for Nauru.

  2. On the subject of Nauru, I recommend people read Anthony ‘Theodore Dalrymple’ Daniels’ memoirs, Fool or Physician. Very amusing and very sad.
