The Clearest and Best Video Explanation of the Virus, the Lockdowns, and the Impact

– September 9, 2020

“Those of us who have been reading and writing on lockdowns and the Covid-19 virus have been frustrated in competition with media frenzy and disinformation. Many times since February or so, I imagined that the latest study would put an end to the fake-science silliness and highly damaging lockdowns. But it kept not happening.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

Litigating Over Lockdowns

– September 9, 2020

“The rights guaranteed in the Constitution are not there merely for decoration and warm feelings, nor can we expect the very entity they serve to limit, the state, to protect them for us. Rather they are upheld by a free, educated, and litigious people who guard their liberty jealously. Such resistance is necessary for an accountable and prudent government.” ~ Ethan Yang

The War on Terror Presaged Covid Mania

– September 9, 2020

“Like the endless War on Terror, the Covid shutdowns will likely be viewed as one of the greatest political debacles in modern American history. But many politicians still believe that there is no problem that cannot be solved by a bigger federal iron fist. Will the media continue venerating “experts” until American freedom and prosperity are both obliterated?” ~ James Bovard

The Fed’s Policy Shift to Let Inflation Rip Higher Is Deeply Flawed

– September 8, 2020

“It’s hard to see the Fed achieving higher inflation, given its recent failure in this matter. A quick look at the monthly consumer price index data over the last decade shows that for the vast majority of the period, inflation was well below 2%. Or put another way, despite all the money printing by the Fed and extended periods of low interest rates, the Fed hasn’t hit its targets in any sustainable way.” ~ Simon Constable

Nancy Pelosi and Her Hair Salon

– September 7, 2020

“Freedom for me, but not for thee seems to be the recurring theme here. Everyday Americans have seen their jobs and their lives stripped at the stroke of a pen. America’s once proud and industrious spirit has been overshadowed by one of fear, insanity, and vitriol. Yet those who are responsible for all of this not only thrive but step on those who try to speak out.” ~ Ethan Yang

The Unintended Disruption of the Ivory Tower

– September 4, 2020

“Whatever innovations and changes arise from the current chaos, it is very likely that higher education will not look the same as it did before 2020. Given current intellectual trends that elevate social justice above the pursuit of truth and higher education’s tremendous waste of resources (including the economy-crushing delay of adulthood), that may be for the best.” ~ Jay Schalin

An Experiment in Self-Governance

– September 4, 2020

“This semester, millions of college students are unfortunately going to face a test that is far more important than any exam, assignment, or project that they will ever get in any of their classes. This is the test of self-governance. Are they capable of governing themselves and acting responsibly? Or do they still require a guiding hand to tell them what to do? We believe college students deserve a chance to try.” ~ Stephen C. Miller & David Hebert

What’s Gone Wrong with Left-Liberalism and Lockdowns?

– September 3, 2020

“It is my hope to convince the liberal/left that our principles, which ostensibly entail concern for minorities and the poor, working and middle classes, and which recognize the importance of human liberty and dignity, should lead us to abhor lockdowns. At the very least, the fact that discussion on the subject is considered off-limits should prompt some self-reflection.” ~ Jenin Younes

The Covid-19 Catastrophe

– September 3, 2020

“When the next crisis comes along they will land on the same sorts of heavy-handed solutions they did this time. The only thing that will chasten them is the anger of the American people. Politicians did far more harm to Americans than Covid-19 did, and that’s what the American people need to remember next time our politicians start down the same pointless road.” ~ James Harrigan & Antony Davies

The Best Virus Response Is Less Government, Not More

– September 3, 2020

“Please ask yourself in your relative comfort just how deep your corona-religion is? Is it so deep that you’ll continue to turn a blind eye to the global suffering that’s taking place so that you can feel safe from a virus that thankfully kills so few? The lives of hundreds of millions of innocent people with exponentially less than you hang on your level of alarmism, and the strange joy you derive from being told what to do.” ~ John Tamny

Will You Choose Freedom?

– September 1, 2020

“In George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel “1984,” protagonist Winston wonders whether he is the only person who retains a real memory and doubts the narrative of The Party. He has no way to find out whether everyone else truly believes the government-revised version of history, or simply acts like they do.” ~ Stacey Rudin
