If you believe as I do, then you believe that individuals entering into voluntary contracts can be very beneficial to both parties. Now, if only we could contract with animals or more specifically insects. While doing some work outdoors recently, I found myself involuntarily donating blood to the local mosquito population. I found myself swatting at them and more than anything, scratching at my new bites! You might think that I am being selfish by not being willing to share my blood with the mosquitoes. Yet this is not the case. I am more than willing to share my blood, I am just concerned about contracting a disease. If I could contract with the mosquitoes and agree to give them a pint of blood per year in exchange for them not biting me for a year. This way the mosquitoes could have the blood that they want and I can avoid the hassle of dealing with mosquito bites. This seems like a mutually beneficial arrangement, unfortunately one that will not being happening any time soon.
