Some were useful once but continued today because they're political plums. We subsidize southern sugar beets to foil a dying old man in Cuba. I think it's time to make nice and turn Cuba into the Capitalist Vegas of the Caribbean.

we loved Castro when he tossed out a dictator. If he hadn't turned to Communism we would still love him. Asia is developing South and Latin American markets while we're mired in Cold war politics.

There is an international shortage of grains. We should be growing it anywhere that has room for seeds.

I definitely agree. Once you put them (subsidies) in place it is very difficult to get rid of them. It usually becomes a voting block that no politician wants to lose.

Does "do unto others as you would have them do unto you," fit in here?

I think it is fair to say yes, it does fit in.
Don't take my stuff because I don't want to take yours. Is that the same?
