Covid Regulations in Loco Moco

– December 5, 2020

“Unfortunately, all the bankrupted local businesses, all the shafted young children, and the surge in cases of attempted suicide and mental illness are irrelevant to how MoCo scores its good deeds. As long as county officials can claim that things would have been worse without its destructive edicts, they can continue pretending to have saved humanity.” ~ James Bovard

Canada’s COVID-19 Strategy is an Assault on the Working Class

– December 4, 2020

“Lockdowns have generated enormous collateral damage on other health outcomes, such as plummeting childhood vaccination rates, worst cardiovascular disease outcomes, less cancer screening, and deteriorating mental health, just to name a few. Even if all lockdowns are lifted tomorrow, this is something that we will have to live with – and die with – for many years to come.” ~ Dr. Sunetra Gupta & Dr. Martin Kulldorf

The Global Guinea Pig: Airlines to Discriminate Based on Your Medical Status

– December 4, 2020

“Future politicians may be tempted to deny potential immigrant groups entry under the guise of a ‘public health threat.’ Digital health passes could be extended to include: influenza, hepatitis, measles, tuberculosis, Zika, HIV and STDs. And all because, during our trip down Covid-hysteria highway, we threw waivers and personal responsibility out the window.” ~ Micha Gartz

Nursing Homes and Covid Fatalities: The Empirical Relationship

– December 2, 2020

“While not all deaths are preventable, we have a moral obligation to engage in focused protection rather than continue one-size-fits all approaches to public health. To the extent that resources for testing, vaccines, health care worker time, and federal grants are scarce, they should be focused on the most vulnerable, and few are more vulnerable than nursing home residents.” ~ Stephen C. Miller

For Many Churches, It Is Too Late

– December 1, 2020

“With all the carnage from these various “stringencies” designed to control the mostly uncontrollable, why focus on the tribulations of religious institutions? The history of liberty began with the idea of religious freedom. The realization that no great calamity would befall society if people were allowed to worship as they pleased then gave rise to all the other freedoms we took for granted until recently. It makes sense, then, that the long road to recovering our rights would begin here.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

The Censorship of Dr. Briand

– December 1, 2020

“The main problem with all of this goes far beyond Dr. Briand’s research. This is all representative of an unproductive orthodoxy that exists around Covid-19. An orthodoxy that has a set view on how to think and how to respond to the virus.” ~ Ethan Yang

Communities in the Pandemic

– December 1, 2020

“Are local communities self-organizing because politics is being unduly constrained, limited in its spending capacity, and disempowered, or are they self-organizing because, in spite of consuming more than a third of GDP (in England), governments are simply lacking the flexibility and the responsiveness to deal with people’s demands, particularly when they are new and when they are changing?” ~ Alberto Mingardi

A Year of Backsliding in the Fight Against HIV/AIDS

– December 1, 2020

“Rather than celebrating the progress made against this devastating, incurable disease, this year’s World AIDS Day is marked with a note of mourning. Lockdowns may shelter people from Covid-19, but no matter how well-intended they are, their burden inevitably falls on the most vulnerable. Only time will reveal how deadly these disruptions have been to the world’s HIV-positive population––but the prognosis is bleak.” ~ Fiona Harrigan

Covid Misclassification: What Do the Data Suggest?

– November 30, 2020

“Even during the April peak, excess deaths from dementia were greater than excess deaths from all respiratory disease. This is very difficult to explain by any hypothesis other than death by lockdown.” ~ Gilbert Berdine

Viruses, Lockdowns, and Biomic Learning

– November 29, 2020

“The best testimony to the success of these mutual learning processes is not only the amazing story of Taiwan. It is our very presence on the planet today, some 8 billion learning systems strong, distributed as widely as human minds and interacting everywhere to ensure the survival of learning and growth.” ~ George Gilder

What the Hasidim Tell Us About Being Americans

– November 28, 2020

“It is the philosophy of human rights and liberty applied consistently and equally to all that makes America America. If it takes Hasidim, who live according to ancient Biblical and Rabbinic law and 18th century Eastern European customs and fashion, and who may choose to ignore even the best scientific advice, the better to pursue their own happiness, to remind us of this, well, more power to them. L’Haim, to life!” ~ Mitchell Heller

Blinded by a Blizzard of Data

– November 28, 2020

“What’s important is that we address each risk with commensurate care. That the media has consistently reported on Covid without appropriate context suggests that historians will look back on 2020 less for its outbreak of Covid than for its outbreak of hysteria.” ~ Antony Davies & James R. Harrigan
