Is there a correlation that needs rethinking the wisdom, wealth, freedom, and independence obtained by having manufacturing capabilities for vital goods and services in our Nation.?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Africa needs new thinking about vaccines, reported:

“Amid hopeful signs that maybe — just maybe — the pandemic has peaked here with the help of vaccines, a depressing number of people, mainly in poorer countries, still has yet to receive a single shot.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate and ancient wisdom verses to this conundrum.

King Solomon

Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it. (Ecclesiastes 7:12)

Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds;(Proverb 27:23)

The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender. (Proverb 22:7)

What’s My Point?

The founders of the USA fought and died for freedom and independence and the USA, thanks to the wisdom to manage the wealth and freedom of its citizens. Over time, the USA managed its natural resources and freedom allowed citizens to participate in capitalism that seved tp advace science and industry to enable both the Nation and families to grow and prosper.

My point is we need to discern and rethink this conundrum of how the USA correlates to both Africa and the USA leaders wise or foolish paths that occurred in the past five decades?

And if the path was not wise, perhaps we need to change direction in the USA by correlation the circumstance experienced in Africa to transfer the wealth of the natural resources to industrial Nations to become richer and more powerful and the result the citizens become dependent to the industrialized Nations.

Or in other words, as the proverb warns, to and Africa return to reverse the present path of folly same as what occurred in Africa?

In My Opinion,

If we discern the article statements and relate Africa’s problems to the USA decision to outsource manufacturing of vital components and services, what Africa is now experiencing to attempt to manufacture vital drugs to combat Covid, can be correlated to the USA experience of outsourcing 90 percent of its PPE to global sources.

For Example. If we correlate the need for vaccines in Africa, to the shortages of vital goods and services in these following statements.

“The first six African countries … that will receive technology needed to produce mRNA vaccines on the continent…  and thus reduce their reliance on manufacturers outside the continent… it also sparked a scramble for supplies in regions that need the most help…”

In other words, in my opinion, it is time for USA to rethink a long-term strategy to prevent the circumstances of shortages of vital goods and services is the result of USA belief that the USA will prosper more with a service economy and that manufacturing will never return to the USA.

If we do not, we will be continuing on the present path of dependence upon foreign powers and subject to vacillating political leadership of Nations,

Nations whose citizens do not prosper or share in the power and wealth produced in a free Capitalist market place and are ruled by leaders engaging in Communism, or Dictatorships  

And as we just experienced with Covid, subjected to long delays to obtain PPE equipment which if had been more available if manufactured in the USA, might have prevent the spread of Covid deaths.

While the cost to develop vaccines to the USA was paid for by printing dollars and increasing the National Debt. The end result devaluation of the value of the dollar is inflation.

Which in turn has made the USA poorer over the past five decades and more dependent to the rich who have been wiser to spend the dollars acquiring USA natural resources and ownership of manufacturing facilities in other Nations.

Or in other words, the USA leaders beginning five decades ago did not follow the advice of King Solomon ancient wisdom to “preserve the knowledge of manufacturing, give careful attention to our herds, and the result is the USA is poorer in both wealth and independence.

If we don’t rethink this conundrum to compare what occurred in Africa with Covid, to what has occurred in the USA in the past five decades for the sake of our future generations to be given a single shot of what was afforded to previous generations.

You Decide

Is there a correlation or a warning message for USA to retching the wisdom or folly outsourcing manufacturing to globalism sources for vital goods and services?

Will the USA path of inflation continue to devaluate the dollar result in more independence or dependance on foreign powers? `

Should today’s news be reporting less squabbling among ourselves about masks and vaccines and more rethinking about returning manufacturing of vital goods and services to the USA to avoid what Russia is now doing to Europe which has become dependent upon Russia for gas and oil?
